To find this hotel with a Garmin sat nav was impossible no matter what we typed in we ended up on an industrial estate, in desperation we went to the tourist office in the centre of town who gave us a map with the hotel location on it. The hotel is by a dual carriage way on the edge of the town of Merida and near the bull ring which meant a 20 minute walk into the centre, which didn't particularly matter as there were a lot of Roman ruins to see on the way. The town itself is quite small, typically Spanish and very pleasant, and the ruins are well worth seeing, apparently Herod was born here.
The hotel was basic and the staff could not speak any English but still somehow managed to ask in sign language if my partner and I were married! You would have had a problem if you were disabled as the lift did not reach the lobby but stopped at the top of quite a few marble steps. The room was basic with a reasonable bathroom which had a bath as well as shower but no plug in the basin so I had to ask for one, and there was no heating which was a bit of a problem as it was rather cold being November, otherwise it was alright for a single nights stop over. On reflection it would have been better to have been nearer the centre of town for restaurants and the ruins. The best part of the hotel was the free parking which is very expensive in Spain.
