The place is really neat, very colonial, some Mayan influence. They have a hot tub that is only off due to covid. The place is very clean and they work hard to make sure your experience is exactly what you need. Mario and Manuel were both very helpful and nice.
The rooms have a safe, and the hotel locks it’s doors when it gets late (but there’s always someone tending the desk if you decide to stay out past 10:00). One of my favorite places I’ve stayed, in terms of local culture and helpfulness.

Would really recommend this to anyone looking for a hotel in Mérida; beautiful setting on a safe street not too far from the middle of town and the bike hire for Sundays is a short walk around the corner. Lovely clean, beautiful room. Breakfasts in the morning were prepared right in front of you and were so tasty. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. Front door is locked at night with a night porter to let you in as and when required. Hopefully we will come back to Mérida one day, if so, we will be sure to book this hotel again!

I have been coming to Merida for a month every January for the past 6 years and have come to know and appreciate the staff at Hotel del Peregrino and the consistently excellent service they offer. Staff retention is high so we see the same warm, welcoming, helpful faces year after year. From arranging tours to calling taxis to giving helpful advice about the city - the staff is at your service. As other reviews have said: spotlessly clean, charming decor, perfect location on a quiet (for Mérida) street close to many attractions, much-appreciated and delicious breakfast - and reasonably priced. A real gem.

Stayed here 5 nights on family vacation. Positives include a friendly staff, with high English proficiency, convenient central location, good price, excellent stable wifi and a very good functional AC unit. The power and the water were reliable. It was also very clean and the housekeeping was well done.

The on street parking was only an occasional issue, there was almost always a space near the hotel, especially after 5pm.

As for the picky complaints:

The rooms were somewhat small and cramped and Merida’s heat made lounging on the patio only so-so, and public area furniture was without cushions. We had a squeaky ceiling fan that you had to turn off at night. Merida hard water made the towels and bedding feel a little gritty. The beds are on the harder side.

The breakfast was so-so, you have to book a 8am or 9am slot. The substitute breakfast team on Sunday was excellent, the weekday crew was mediocre and we gave up and used the bakery down the street or grabbed a granola bar. (Regrettably there was no easily available local coffee option before 8am for several blocks).

Many reviews mention the noise. It’s an older remodeled building, with relatively loose windows and doors and thin walls. You can hear the street, the neighbors tv or water running, etc. fortunately there were very few other guests during our stay, and we were all the way upstairs, but I can see how some rooms would indeed be loud.

Finally, there is NO hot water. Desk clerk shrugged. A fellow guest suggested that you take a shower after returning in the afternoon of Merida’s blazing Sun and you won’t notice (he had a point).

Many times our vacations involve the hotel only as a place to sleep a few hours before retuning to sightseeing, if you are planning on that sort of trip this place is fine. My family wanted this trip to include a more relaxed itinerary; unfortunately this hotel wasn’t as conducive to relaxation as I would have liked.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for seven nights last week, and we would highly recommend it. The location is perfect in Merida - it’s an easy walk to the central square, and an equally easy walk to the lovely Passeo north of it. It’s really like a home away from home - the staff and owner were so friendly and helpful, and there is a totally comfortable feel to the place. The breakfasts were delicious, and cooked right in front of you. There is a communal kitchen and fridge for guest use, which is useful. The room wasn’t huge, but it was big enough and opened to the courtyard. The air conditioning worked well and the beds, though firm, were comfortable. I would definitely stay here again if we return to Merida.

We opted to get a room with two beds on the second floor, which was quite spacious and light. It was also away from the downstairs hub bub during breakfast. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom attractive with plenty of hot water (although as in other places we stayed, the water has to run a little while to get hot). I liked that there were lots of places to put things, and the room was a pleasant place to retreat to at the end of the day. There were several outdoor seating areas, which we took advantage of since I sleep a bit later than my husband, who jumps on his computer early.

The location is quite good, within easy walking distance of the main square, Paseo del Montejo Avenue, and many restaurants. One in particular, just down the street called Urban Bistro is a find! We ate there twice in our three days in Merida.

We had a couple issues with the breakfast - not getting our orders right, and not very good coffee. The staff are lovely and very helpful - several speak very good English, which was helpful.

We enjoyed our four night stay in Hotel Peregrino. It has a really nice vibe (homely)and everyone is friendly. Staff are helpful and we felt very safe.It is close to the city centre but up a quieter side street. The rooms are comfortable but not luxurious.They are clean with good wi-fi and air con.Comfortable bed. Breakfasts were interesting because we met other guests from all over the world and we could swop travel notes!. There is a little kitchen guests can use as well.
The small swimming pool(shared with Nomads and 100 yards down the road) is a fantastic bonus after a long day of pavement pounding.
We also did a trip with Maya Eco tours which I would have no hesitation in recommending.
We would love to come back one day. Thank you.

The room was very comfortable with everything we needed. The breakfast was great and the staff were beyond exceptional. We got a parking ticket (we’re unexperienced drivers in Mexico and should have asked for help at the start!) and the man at the desk helped us to interpret it, helped us find where to go pay it and when, and helped us park our car legally. He definitely went above and beyond for us! I would love to have the opportunity to visit again.

Very comfortable, great location, kind and helpful staff. We ran the Merida Marathon which started close to the location of Hotel del Peregrino . Staff was super helpful with directions and suggestions for visiting Progresso and Mayan Ruins. Near many good restaurants too.

The Peregrino hotel is situated in a wonderful location in Merida, close to many excellent restaurants, shops, museums, music and other cultural events. Walking for 5-minutes in any direction and you have a wide variety of amazing choices to select from. The hotel is very charming and extremely clean. But most importantly, you will be greeted with the friendliest and most helpful staff imaginable. Any request was met with a smile and a responsive desire to make our stay more enjoyable, including the delicious complimentary breakfasts. By the end of my stay there, I felt like the owners and their staff were part of my extended family. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Hi, that is not a communal kitchen, it is open to the patio and you can store water in the refrigerator, but the cook staff are the one's who operate the kitchen.

Hello There is parking on the street in front of the hotel. Merida is a very safe city, our street is safe and is constantly patrolled and therefore your car will be safe too. We have never had a problem in the 10 years I have been there. Happy travels!
