El Alfarero was a surprise to us: it was very brightly decorated, light and easily accessible to all parts of the small city. What astounded us is the Roman Ruins a half block away on the same street. We shared a bathroom on the third floor but it was not so terribly inconvenient as only another older couple was also...

Agree with previous reviewer. Clean, tidy hotel with helpful staff. Parking a bit tricky to work out, but make sure you get the parking ticket at Cerventes stamped by the hotel and you will only pay €8 per day. Also found nearby food poor, but faired better next to the food market where the tapas was good. Beautiful city, worthy... More

This moderately priced hotel is really just minutes away from what you need in Merida -- the Museum, Roman Theatre, Ampitheatre, Plaza de Espana etc. Good value for money. Well maintained rooms, with perhaps the only negative being a rather sophisticated shower console that does not function too well (not just my room -- my friend had the same problem... More

We stayed in one of the lower-priced rooms on the top floor--one without an attached bathroom.The room was okay, though it had half-height windows to the interior hallway/staircase and things could be a bit loud. Good shared bath with nice strong water pressure. No breakfast room in the hostal, but we were given a coupon to a local cafe for... More

We ended up staying at the Alfarero much longer than we originally planned because my luggage had been lost and so we stayed behind until it caught up with us. The rooms were simple but very clean and well maintained. Alfarero means "potter" and there is a lot of handmade pottery incorporated into the decor, from the washbasin in our... More

I tried to book the Hostel on line but there was no reply so after several days I phoned them. Why they ask you to contact them by email then ignore you I cannot say, but it is frustrating. My 2 nights there were fine, the double room o.k. for one person, a little cramped perhaps for 2, but clean... More

The most noteworthy thing about El Alfarero is its decor. Someone with an eye for design did a good job with the place, and it lends it an attractive air. Our double room was clean and fairly spacious, and though we were concerned about noise (since it was right next to the front desk), it turned out to be quiet... More
