Two blocks from the main square and activity in Merida is this old restored rectory. Beautiful courtyard, wonderful employees, good food at reasonable prices and very, very clean rooms and common areas. Valet parking 24/7. You would never know you were in the heart of the city in this hotel. Around the corner is the original, beautiful church associated with... More

Recently stayed at La Mision de Fray Diego and couldn't be any happier. Location is very good, about 2 blocks from the main plaza. Hotel is very clean and staff is very friendly.

We went to this hotel after a horrible scenario with another hotel. It is a beautiful hotel in a good location. The courtyard is stunning, with a good sized clean pool and a restaurant attached (which is quite expensive so I suggest going elsewhere for the meal). We had one of the top rooms which were pretty but basic for... More

What a beautiful hotel! The La Mision is maintained really well, with an easy to access pool and lovely gardens. The restaurant and bar is great. The wifi isn't the best, hard to access in the rooms. Great location, short walk to markets, shops and restaurants. Would recommend to those travelling to Merida!

Pretty courtyards, cool and spacious a short distance from the bustle of Merida Square. Restaurant service excellent and we were glad to eat there in the evenings away from the noise of the city. Room comfortable, if a little dated. A lick of fresh paint here and there wold improve the hotel.

The hotel photographs well, and we were drawn in by its charm. We paid a little extra on Expedia to have a special room with two double beds. When we parked we were greeted by an extremely helpful porter. However, disappointingly, we were shown to a room that did not fit the description. Moreover, it smelled like cleaning fluid. I...

Ok so if you want affluence you go further north but as a central location this was perfect being two blocks form main square. Two lovely courtyards one with a small pool, terrace for breakfast and early evening drinks.

Great location only 5 mins walking to Cathedral Square. Step back in time as you enter the 17 Century courtyard with statues and fountains.

Many thank for your comment! We sorry you did not like our bed, and apologize. All beds are special for hotels, the standard quality to not be so soft or so hard. Actually, they are pretty new but with years, beds tend to be softer. However, we are attentive to this issue to resolve how to improve the experience. Best... More
