Great place, but unfortunately last Wed. April 16, 2014 both Rosalinda and Jan went to the other side. Both are dead. We arrived last Friday April 18th, 2014 to find the place closed with police tape and were told about the tragic deaths of both. We had stayed in Casa Chalia a week prior to that and found Rosalinda in... More

As one who has enjoyed Casa Chalia on many visits , including several recent ones, I feel it necssary to update fans of the place. Rosie, one of the owners, passed away recently, and Casa Chalia had closed. Jan is in the hospital for previous issues and the place is closed at this time. I do not know the future... More

This hotel has an enchanting shaded courtyard where we ate the most delicious breakfasts I've ever had while travelling. Our hosts were welcoming, friendly, funny -- and between them, they speak about 6 languages. What I really liked was that they enthusiastictly answered my many questions -- like how to find the right local "colectivo" bus to visit sites on... More

Very close to ADO bus terminal, clean room with air conditioning, very nice owners, awesome home breakfest made by owners. Room and the bathroom are small but have the minimum you need for a short stay. And incredible price. I would highly recommend to anyone coming to Merida.

Our travels started in Merida and this was our first place we stayed & after 3 weeks of traveling we spent our last 2 days back here...... More

I booked this after reading the reviews on trip advisor and when I got there, I had to re-read them to check I hadn't made a mistake. I was extremely disappointed. The area didnt seem safe and was quite far from the centre. The sheets were old and stained, the towels scratchy. The room was fairly clean but there were... More

As the name implies, this is not a fancy hotel with concierge and lobby. It was originally the family home (now with additional rooms) of the lovely Rosalinda, who together with her husband Jan runs a comfortable, clean, and very secure guest house where travellers are made to feel most welcome. Although small and basic, our room was clean with... More

Spent three nights here recently and had two different rooms. The first, over the street, required earplugs but was clean and comfortable with private bath, a/c, and hot water. My second room, at the rear was quiet enough and also clean and comfy. The owners are accommodating and include a delicious breakfast prepared in the outdoor kitchen/patio area. The rooms... More
