“Excelent location in Merida. Good price/quality”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

The hotel is perfectly located in Merida historical downtown. It's near the main square, the cathedral and a few blocks away from Paseo Montejo. The staff was very helpful whenever we asked for recommedations of restaurants or places to know in the city. They're so polite!
Our room was clean, with both ventilator and air conditioning, but the bathroom was really small and there was one day we didnt have warm water.
Also, walls seemed to be too thin and you could hear almost everything from next door and we particularly had a loud couple next door.
The continental breakfast they offer could be improved, maybe with some different kind of fruits and not only bananas every day.

We came there without any booking, and got best room. Friendly receptionist showed us several rooms for choice. We looked 3 or 4 rooms - one of them was small and without window. Be careful! We took big room with fan and balcony. Everything was fine. Clean and airy. It was amazing! Very authentic, charming and picturesque place!!! Especially the lobby courtyard! Don’t forget to take a great pictures there!
Definitely I recommend you this hotel!
P.S. They gave us good discount!

I was there last year, and am still referrinng friends. It wasn't a five star hotel, but I didn't want to pay fi ve star prices either. And the breakfast was nothing to write home about. But the location is great, everything is nearby, as a woman traveling alone, I felt totally safe. Employees were nice. I always leave a nice tip for the cleaning people on the day I arrive. It always works, and the people who have complaints should remember this. I will stay there again, and I will refer other people there too. If you want to be in the middle of where things are happening, near wonderful restaurants and good entertainment, and not pay an arm and a leg, this is the place.

Room Tip: I asked for a room on the first floor and was happy.

I've seen some bad reviews of this hotel which I don't think are founded.

The hotel is an old colonial hotel in the heart of Merida. The rooms are fairly basic, but true to the character of the hotel.

It's super central and cheap. Step through the door and you're back a hundred years. I really liked this hotel, it's full of character and charm.

Room Tip: We stayed in the back rooms, I think they were quieter and had their own little patio area.

The hotel is in an excellent location, was fairly clean and it was maybe by chance, but I requested a quieter non-street facing room and got one. The long dark hallway to the room and poor lighting didn't feel overly safe. The flimsy lock on the room door lead me to pile a few things in front of the door in case someone decided to come "visit". The reception staff was nice, but overall this hotel seemed a little over priced for what it delivers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which doesn't face the street.

My fiance & I spent 4 nights at this hotel. We were looking for a budget friendly hotel with just the right clean & comfortable commodities for a good night sleep , we didn't care much for other things since we spend all our time outdoors. We were shown 3 rooms & chose one right upstairs the lobby because we didnt have to walk too far & we wanted a balcony. the atmosphere of the hotel is very rustic & "meridian" i enjoyed it. The Room was quaint, very clean with high ceilings., bathroom was tiny , we had closet space,, a flat screen tv tho it didn't show very well but we werent there to watch tv so we weren't bothered by it.. We had no trouble sleeping tho our room was facing the street . Breakfast is set up in the lobby...a couple tables & chairs & consist of tea or coffee, sweet bread, toast & bananas.The receptionist were very helpful & the maid honest. We loved that it was located in the centro & close to everything. This hotel is great if you are not looking for a wow factor..just clean, nice & comfortable. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: rooms upstairs from the lobby have easier access , gets wifi & hv balconies. If any lil noise bo...

This hotel was a very nice surprise. Booked last minute due to a change of plans I was expecting a run down hostel-like setting and was very surprised to find a beautiful colonial style hacienda-like building a block from the main city square. The rooms are very clean with AC, plasma TVs, and super high ceilings that show the original wooden beams. They have recently remodeled and each room has its own bathroom now which is a major plus.
Breakfast of bread and coffee/tea is included...keep in mind that mexican sweet bread is delicious and this one is fresh out of the oven.
The staff is very helpful and attentive. The hotel provides with free parking a block and a half away in case you decide to arrive driving.
All in all best value for your money I have ever seen in a hotel, will recommend it to anyone who travels to Merida.
