I spent a total of six nights at this charming, atmospheric hotel in the heart of Merida. The stunning colonial architecture, lovely courtyard, and excellent restaurant made this a great introduction to an historic city. I was fortunate to stay when prices were discounted, so it was affordable as well.

The 'special' rooms are off the front courtyard in the oldest section of the hotel, adjacent to reception and the diningroom. They have wonderful thick walls, colonial-style furnishings, complimentary bottled water, good air conditioning and ceiling fan, and a small room safe for valuables. There is a larger section of rooms surrounding the plunge pool in the back section of the hotel. I suspect these rooms might be a bit quieter, but the bit of noise to the front rooms was just due to normal hotel operations and was nothing objectionable.

The hotel announces itself as adult-oriented and there were no young children there during my stay. There were, however, a tour group or two which dramatically changed the atmosphere during meals, when the small restaurant filled up and independent guests were asked to sit inside while patio tables were reserved for the groups. There were plenty of other fine dining choices witihin easy walking distance, however, so no need to depend on the restaurant if it did not suit. My meals there were excellent and the menu offers a nice mix of various Mexican cuisines.

Staff were exceptional: friendly, helpful, engaging, and professional. This is a very well run hotel.

This was our first visit to Merida and I searched quite awhile to find budget accommodations with good reviews that was in a historic building. So imagine our shock to arrive and be told we were being sent to another hotel because the A/C was not working. This was during the height of "Carnaval" and we saw other patrons come in off the street as we were being ushered to the other hotel (which happened to be a time share) and assumed they overbooked due to the festival and we would never set foot inside. Alas, we were very pleasantly surprised to go back the next day and be told our room was, indeed, ready for us. Whew!! We had a room with 2 double beds (more large singles than true doubles) on the 2nd floor overlooking the lovely pool.

PROS

Location, location, location! So close to the square and other areas.

Peace and quiet

Clean

Good food. We only had breakfast there, but it was really good (except for the coffee which was really weak)

Nice, helpful staff.

Cool, refreshing pool WITH towels waiting for you on the chaises.

Great price


CONS

Beds were not super comfy for sleeping

Weak coffee


Pros far outweighed any negatives and our first experience in Merida was great!! We will definitely come back when it is NOT Carnaval to experience the true Merida without all the chaos of daily parades and bleachers and barriers set up everywhere

BEST TIP: EVERY TUESDAY AT THE ENGLISH LIBRARY THEY HAVE HOUSE TOURS. THERE IS NO CHARGE AND YOU GET TO SEE 4 VARIOUS HOMES IN MERIDA WHICH IS SUCH A BONUS!!!

We did not stay at this hotel, but we ate at the restaurant. It was one of the best we were at all week. Loved the red snapper and the house wine. A very pleasant evening with friends. The service was excellent.

Just two blocks from the centre of the historical part of Merida, this colonial place is a peaceful haven. It has a nice interior garden and a small pool. The room we stayed in was in the old wing, very high ceiling with a nice bathroom. The bed was HUGE with a large cross hanging on the wall. The staff is very friendly and accomodative. We are vegetarians and they were able to cook something up for us.

Room Tip: If you like a bit of history ask for the rooms in the old wing!

This is a lovely hotel with spacious rooms, a beautiful pool area, lots of colonial charm, and a great location just a block from the main Plaza of Merida (which is a charming city with lots to do, especially on weekends. The city organizes concerts, both classical and traditional, dancing, artisan markets, great street food. Most of the museums are free.)

Staff of La Mision are extremely pleasant and helpful. The only downside....the mattresses are really hard. But we would stay there again anyway!
