“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2008

Oct 10, 2008 - Casa Dona Mercedes is an above average guest house that costs a little more, but is worth it. Rooms are cleaned and vaccumed every day and the beds are made. There are 8 rooms available, some containing private baths with hot and cold water, and some containing shared baths. The shared kitchen contains a refrigerator, microwave, pots and pans, dishes etc. and assorted kitchen items for use. Laundary service is available. This quest house is 2 blocks from central park with many of the best restraunts in the city within walking distance. It is owned and and operated by a charming local lady that speaks Spanish and some English. Nearby is an assortment of Spanish schools, inexpensive and catering to your needs. In the past there was a Discotec directly across the street but which since, has moved down the block and noise level have been greatly reduced! There is free wireless for you computer, 24 hours a day. Your accomodations are safe and secure here, no need to carry things on your back all over the city!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2008

Casa Dona Mercedes is located just two blocks away from the Parque Centro America and its market. We had a reservation but it looked like anyone would be able to get a room even if they are a "walk -in". At first it was difficult to find an entrance but later we figured out that calling the buzzer would do a trick. Inside it's very nice and quiet, with chairs and a patio with hummock to relax. We were offered a few rooms on the ground level floor but they were windowless and looked like the rooms in the castle, so we decided to go with the room on the second floor - a beautiful space with a small balcony. It was clean and spacious with one queen size bed. Hot water is only "upon request".
I haven't mentioned any bars downstairs but the noise outside continued all night, good thing we were too tired to pay attention to it but if you are a light sleeper, i would advise you to get a room facing the other side.
We stayed for one night but because we were hiking Tajumulco for the next couple of days, hotel people allowed us to leave our suitcases in the hotel with no extra charge.
