Room - fine - all mod cons and a separate living room so could close the door on the AC. Slept really well! Dinner - ok - some other diners complained so it wasn't perfect but we sat outside with a bottle of wine, so no real issues there. We stayed in 3 different Paradors back to back and the... More

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

I cannot understand previous reviews criticising this charming Parador. Yes the building is old, it is a former 18th century convent, but it has a wonderful atmosphere, and it is very clean. The location within a 10 minute walk for visiting the amazing Roman sites. We found all the staff very friendly and extremely helpful. We ate outside in a... More

We are both bilingual Spanish/English, lived in Spain for many years and are frequent visitors. Neither of us can understand the "love story" that people use to describe the Paradors. The Parador in Merida is not very inviting, inside it is a maze, a veritable labyrinth and the reception desk is the farthest it could possibly be from the parking... More

It has a pleasant, helpful staff, a cozy bar, neat quiet rooms, a generous breakfast, and a peaceful neighbourhood .... Hard to ask for more. It's a five minute walk from the main shopping district and about 20-25 minute walk from the roman ruins. As with most paradoxes, it's fun just to walk around the place. It's also about a... More

As with many Paradors, it is priced at the upper end of the market, but the building and location are spectacular. Rooms were excellent and the beds comfortable. We walked everywhere and really enjoyed our stay. Apart from breakfast, we did not eat there, because I don't like heavy evening meals, but based on experience at other Paradors, the food... More

Whenever we are in Spain we love staying in Paradores. They are either old monasteries and castles or in great locations; sometimes they are both. The Parador de Merida is one of these -- great location and wonderful old building, but unfortunately the interior of this one is showing its age. As one of the oldest paradors in Spain it... More

Surprised to find that this very pleasant parador rates less than a four. It's well located in the heart of a very interesting historic city - within walking distance of the various Roman sites and the river (if you don't mind walking the odd mile). Deceptively spacious (much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside), usual parador-style... More

As others have noted this Parador is right in the centre of what is a pretty interesting town. Once you park the car you can walk to all the many attractions in the city. Some gripe about the cost of the carpark-boo! its secure and the streets around are very narrow and busy. Well worth a few euros methinks. The... More

This Parador is a converted convent right in the middle of the town. Rooms are large and roomy compared to most in this price range. For those who found the plumbing not to their satisfaction, I found that the space and historic nature of the stay more than compensated for any short comings. Staff were very friendly and helpful during... More
