My girlfriend and I stayed here in mid-January. We stumbled across it late at night after deciding our original hostel was a little bit too far from the main plaza and all the action. It cost us something like $20 each for the night, and the hotel receptionist even gave us a slight price break because I told him we... More

Hotel was clean with friendly staff. Only three blocks from the center of the city. Awesome restaurant across street for breakfast. We thought we would get cable TV but we had none. Also the hotel' s breakfast restaurant took an extremely long time to serve coffee....over 20 minutes. My husband almost gave up on waiting. We had no prior registration... More

It is conveniently located, close to the downtown and Paseo de Montejo and a market not too far. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the rooms large and bright, for those who want they can easily book tours to the many places to see in the area.

I arrived in Merida at 11pm after a late flight coming in. I found this place by chance and walked on in. It was fine for spending the night and had a late enough checkout time (1pm) that I could walk around downtown for a bit in the morning. It is quite a good location. The pool was not filled... More

Hotel San Juan is a great value - relaxing courtyard with swimming pool, old world architectural charms, and located in the heart of Centro, just blocks from restaurants, shops, and Parque Principal. If you want a ton of amenities, this place may not be for you. But if you normally travel with a mind more for budget than luxury, I... More

There are significantly better value places nearby (try Hostal Zocalo), which are in better locations. The pluses of being in a hotel rather than a private hostel room are air conditioning, television, and pool access - but frankly none of these things are necessities. Staff were okay. Place was okay. It was clean, and okay.

This is not a fancy hotel but seemed clean and friendly... free Internet but no hair drier nor complementary water. Breakfast is available but starts late. Good secure parking is a plus. There is a great cafe just across the street that serves an excellent breakfast from 7 am.

If you're the type that likes to stay downtown next to the old square and not uptown next to the great shopping centers...if you would rather get into your rental and drive out everyday in a different direction to see the sites and only use your hotel to take a shower and get a good nites sleep...if you would rather...

We were looking for a one night stay with parking, and this fit the bill for that. But, there is no guaranteee that they'll have a spot in the locked lot (it did seem secure). It is in a convenient location, and was much quieter than I would have anticipated from the busy location. And, the staff was friendly. There... More

Very average/sparten rooms but acceptable. Ants in bathroom were the only downside. Nice enough pool area/pool which was good on the hot days--a nice place to relax after touring Merida. A great location--very close to everything. Good value for the money
