Great location and good rooms. Over priced compared to other paradors. Breakfast was good once everything arrived, would not advise going in before 9am food was slow in coming out and was not all hot as expected. On site parking was good but expensive. Would give this one a miss.

We stayed for 2 nights in June. On the plus side the Parador is superbly located for visiting the sights of Merida; its a historic building and the staff are very friendly. However the room, while cleaned, was in need of a complete 'make over'. Floor mats beside the bed were worn and appeared 'grubby'. The floor of the bathroom... More

I had seen various negative reviews, so was prepared to be disappointed, but I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are clean and the furnishings are well-maintained, but not luxurious. It really fits the city of Merida -- it's kind of an out-post, but it is clean and friendly. The common areas of the hotel aren't great. The pool is small... More

The Paradores Merida is an old and rather shabby Paradores set in a lovely location with pretty streets close by. Paradores Management know that they have to make an investment decision - renovate or close. Careful renovation is recommended but the pay-back may not justify this. The breakfast lacks some style and should be redesigned. The staff try hard. We... More

The Parador in Merida is situated in a former monastery building and there is lots of heritage charm as you wander through. Merida itself has lots and lots of fascinating Roman ruins and archeological history and the historical theme really suits. It is well located in the central town area and only a very short stroll to the main avenues,... More

This was my first experience in a Parador so I cannot compare to others. As I was expecting, it was a beautiful historic building located in the city center, which is very convenient to walk to the main attractions. It's only a 10-minute walk to the Roman Theater so this is a great option for Theater Festival goers. We found... More

Only certain Relais et Chateaux can compete with this Parador !! It is like staying in a museum whilst benefitting from all relaxing, comfortable, pleasant, kind, informative hotel services, as well as excellent food and beverage. The breakfast buffet may be slightly overpriced, unless you are willing to adopt Dutch tourist behaviour and fill up and take away a picnic... More

A beautiful Parador with lots of history. We had a special deal which included a suite. We visited with our scottish cousins, we both took up the offer and bedroom, lounge and bathroom were very well appointed and large. Good underground parking.

Room - fine - all mod cons and a separate living room so could close the door on the AC. Slept really well!

As with most Paradores the building is very interesting in it's own way. Do not expect luxury. However the rooms and facilities are fine. The Hotel has been sypathetically arranged, with some old features clearly on show. Nice bar area, courtyard, and safe underground parking ( a little expensive). Being close to the centre of Merida, numerous cafe, bars, restaurants,... More
