I stayed in this Hotel for nine days. The location is good, across from “Hospital de la Mujer” It was a wonderful experience. Room was cleaned daily as it suppose to be, towels were very clean and changed daily (including the ones not used) every body was helpful during my stay. We have a buffet breakfast (changing daily) with traditional... More

We stayed here for 3 nights for a conference nearby at CIFCO. The room was fine and the staff helpful for off site services and directions. The breakfast was not anything to look forward to and we ate elsewhere for other meals. During our stay another traveler had his room broken into and his Ipad stolen. The pool is not... More

This was a wonderful experience...dining, sleeping, gathering, relaxing, just being a welcomed guest! I could not have been happier with the comfort and welcome that I experienced here. The service was wonderful. Breakfast was convenient and served over a long period. Room service was provided if you missed meal times. Coffee and tea was available most any time. The maid... More

Hotel Marela is a modest, sparse but perfectly clean and acceptable place to stay, and quite a bargain. My room had an electronic lock, tile floors, a queen-size bed, a small nightstand, dresser, desk, refrigerator (empty) and a large closet. The bathroom was quite spartan -- just a few towels, nothing fancy, the shower drain was slow, and the hot... More

This is a solid, three-star, well-kept hotel about the same distance from Hospital Benjamin Bloom and the University as the hotels in the Zona Rosa. We were there for 7 nights, (rarely in the day...so cannot comment on noise), and never had a complaint. The breakfasts were made to order from a small menu and serving started at 6:30 am.... More
