“A hidden gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

This little hotel run by two brothers Jose and Victor was a delightful surprise. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the bathroom and towels fragrant smelling.
This is location, location, right on Paseo de Montejo (Champs-Élysées) of Merida. The free concerts on Friday and Saturday nights are right ay your doorstep. Walking distance to the grand plaza, and Starbucks for your daily shot if Java.
I will return!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

Hostel Luna Nueva is brand new: still in the colonial district but entirely renovated inside, more stylish than most B&Bs or hostels. They do have a dorm but it was hardly occupied during my stay and I didn't feel a bakpackers atmosphere--on the contrary, in the private room and with the 24-hour reception service, I felt that I was in a proper little hotel. It was super clean and comfortable.

I was able to use the washer-dryer for a small fee. The location is slightly north of the heart of the colonial area but with maximum 10 minutes' walk to most attractions it wasn't an issue. Internet was breaking up in the rooms but worked well in the lobby. The televisions in the rooms have only 5 local free-to-air channels, not very useful for foreign visitors, and the satellite television is only available in the lobby. Breakfast consisted of coffee or tea and toasts, self-service. The Mexican Night street fair and show takes place on Saturdays directly in front of the hotel, but the music stopped soon after 11 pm.

Altogether a great place to stay, excellent value for money, and I would definitely go again.

Room Tip: Room #6 was a bit noisier as it overlooks the street, but room #4 was perfect for me as it was very...
