Hotel was situated very close to all that Merida had to offer - bars, restaurants, shopping etc. Rooms were quite basic, unfortunately pool not swimmable, despite assurances from staff that it was cleaned daily - filter wasn't working. Very friendly hotel staff, although breakfast staff spoke very little English which made communication a bit difficult.

A very charming hotel that is "picture perfect" with the courtyard and rooftop pool views of the cathedral. The location is perfect - set in a quaint square and only a block away from the main plaza.

This hotel is located on a small square in the center of Merida, right by the main Cathedral. It was once a school for wealthy boys, so it's a really old building, which still retains it's Spanish patio with a fountain inside, but the rooms were completely renovated and are modern and clean, with air conditioning. Wifi is a little... More

This place was great! Nice location, great staff. We enjoyed sitting at their little tables outside in the front which is right in the park. Great waiter for having drinks while watching all the events in the park. From the pool you can see the cathedrals. Very clean hotel. I would recommend it!

Fabulous location in the heart of the historic district. You can walk to anything you need within a few moments.

There is not much positive I can say about this hotel except that it is in a great location. The room was nice enough but very dimly lit.

I would have rated this hotel higher but the smell in our room was awful! We were directly underneath the swimming pool and I think that's why our room smelled so moldy, we had to keep the aircon on all the time to reduce the smell. Opening the closet door was a bad idea too as the pong got worse.... More
