“Good place to stay!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

A short walk to the heart of the city; the colonial atmosphere brings a lot to the place; the new building in the back still catches the ambiance and offers comfort after a long hot day of walking.
The room we had was spacious and comfortable.
The staff was a bit rough on the edges at first(probably because of the way gringos behave) but they gradually became much nicer and hepful.
The tv didn t work when we arrived which didn t matter but they fixed it the next morning.
The reception sits in the old patio with a fountain which is very charming as well as the open part of the restaurant.
The main complaint if I had any is that the breakfast isn't included in the price and the parking lot is off site which means you have to tip the valet each Time or wait for him to be available.

We arrived in Merida late in the evening on a very wet January night. We walked into La Mision de Fray Diego through its centuries-old wooden doors and into a candlelit courtyard and a welcoming smile from our host. This is a wonderful hotel. A calm, serene oasis in the centre of bustling Merida. I can recommend the breakfast (especially the huevos rancheros) and the perfect margaritas made by Jose. When we arrived home we realised we'd left a jacket, with one of my fave brooch's on its lapel, in the wardrobe. The hotel staff were fantastic - it was no problem for them to send it back to us in NZ.

If you like shiny, flash and modern, this hotel is not for you. It is a 16th century relic full of antiques, art and atmosphere but with nice bathrooms and a crystal-clear central pool. We loved it.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms overlooking the pool are peaceful and authentic

Very nice and quiet. Very close to the main square in town. It is an older property but it was clean and the beds were comfortable. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Good value for the price. I would stay here again.

Very nice and quite! In the heart of the old city! I will recommend to be in Merida Saturday and Sunday! Next to the Mision Fray Diego there is a lot of places to have breakfast or lunch. The hotel was a Monastery from 17th century and kids under 12 years are not allowed. So it's always quite. Very nice and we were very happy. There is a square close that is called St. Lucia. There is one hotel close and the name is Hotel St. Lucia was amazing, we passed by to take a look. I can recommend that one as well! Merida is a little pearl with a lot of history and amazing architecture! Enjoy whatever you go!

I had the pleasure of staying in this awesome quaint Boutique Style Hotel while on a business trip to Merida and surrounding areas in the Yucatan. This was originally a mansion converted to a 20 room + 2 larger suites boutique hotel. The bathrooms are modern, while the guestrooms are authentic mission style decor. The staff are very attentive and friendly. I only had breakfast and it was awesome! The open air bar doubles as the breakfast area if you choose. They also have an air conditioned dining room. The guest rooms surround the romantic swimming pool courtyard. This hotel is not for everybody. No elevator, only stairs. Very quiet and romantic. I would definitely stay there again.

After travelling from Campeche and negotiating traffic to find the hotel in 38 degrees we were astounded to arrive in such a surprisingly beautiful and cool setting. The valet, who spoke great English, parked our car for us and we relaxed. The reception staff were welcoming and efficient. Our room was cool and beautifully furnished in classic Mexican style. The pool area was just so inviting. Stepping out to visit the main square was just 200 metres away, but what a relief to return to our cool haven. Breakfast was in courtyard area, or in air conditioned restaurant, as you preferred. Jose our waiter was professional but entertaining, with a twinkle in his eye. Breakfast was great, cakes, omelette or pancakes, fresh fruit. Had wonderful paella in the evening and sent compliments to the lady chef. A wonderful oasis of calm in the middle of a hot exciting city. Perfect location. When the valet brought our car back he was a while. He apologised and said one of our tyres was down and he'd had it inflated. What service!

This hotel is so beautiful the outside courtyard is fantastic and the pool is always crystal blue.
The rooms are nothing special and are a little rustic - good air conditioning and nice bathroom but don't expect anything too amazing.
The hotel staff are mostly very nice however when asking for water we were told no many times even though the hotel claims it provides free bottled water.
