This is an excellent small boutique hotel full of atmosphere. The courtyard area, where you have breakfast, is quiet and beautiful (plants and water feature.) Alex, the owner, insists on making breakfast from the basic ingredients (croissants, marmalade...all homemade.) Alex is a chef and he knows all the best restaurants in town (so make sure you ask him where to... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Julamis for five nights in July and loved it. Alex is a wonderful host -- knowledgeable, conscientious, and generous with his time and attention. He's also a terrific chef, so the breakfasts are superb. We stayed in the Suite Colonial, which was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The hotel's location is ideal, nearly... More

We spent one night in Julamis and we highly suggest a stay there if you're in merida! As soon as we arrived the owners welcomed us with the warmest smiles and very useful tips in how to spend our time in town, as well as a sip of tequila for free which is always welcomed. The house is a little... More

This was our third trip to Merida, but our first stay at Hotel Julamis. The hotel's location was convenient to everything. Chef Alex was the perfect host. He provided us with a wealth of information about sights and restaurants, most that we had missed before. This a great place to stay and we would always come back here.

I have been here for a couple of nights, and my stay is not at all pleasant. Pros: The room looks decent and clean, and that is the only good part. Its nothing fancy as being portrayed on the website. Its just a plain and ordinary hotel like anything else. Cons: I don't know why people have given so many... More

I would give the Julamis 7 or 8 stars if possible. We stayed at the Julamis 5 nights during mid July and we had a wonderful experience. Everything is fantastic about this place. It is located in a quiet neighborhood two blocks away from Plaza Santa Lucia (the nicest Plaza in Merida where the best restaurants are), a couple of... More

Stayed at Julamis in May and would do so again without hesitation. Great location, mostly residential neighbourhood. Walkable to Santa Ana,Santa Lucia and Parque Grande. Alex is a wealth of information on what to do and where to go in town. A most gracious host. Our room was just right, quiet, clean and peaceful with AC and faced in to... More

Like many other guests, this was a great stay at Hotel Julamis. From the reviews I read, it should be as good as it was. Alex is a great person, where else do you have a Chef cooking your breakfast for you? And delicious one, I may say. Will come back, for sure.

This was one of the best places we have ever stayed, in any country. It will remain in our memories for a long time to come. Chef Alex is so hospitable; he greeted us with an offer to help ourselves to tequila at his downstairs personal bar. The room was fantastic and had it's own private patio. It was clean,... More

Visited this gem in Merida in October 2014. Room was super cute and clean and the grounds were spectacular. I loved the old architecture and gorgeous decorations. Alex (the owner) was beyond helpful and friendly. He spoke numerous languages and went out of his way to help us get acquainted with the city, giving us directions and great suggestions for... More
