My 5-star rating is to a large extent about the excellent value for money. The prices when I stayed here were extraordinarily good for this very congenial and pretty little boutique hotel which makes a lot of other places in Merida look ridiculously over-priced. But altogether I would have been happy even if I'd been paying more because it's in any case a very satisfying place to stay, even if it has some limitations. The name of the hotel points to the theming of its rooms...Mexican art....and there are several interesting and quirky art pieces as part of the decor. The pink and ochre walls shouldn't work, but they do, and the hotel is generally very attractive. There's a nice open terrace area on the top of the building, and a very small pool (you won't actually swim in it , but it will do the job of cooling you). My room was small, with little furniture (you more or less have to live out of your suitcase), but nicely designed and efficient. The queen bed and the bedding are especially noteworthy...extremely comfortable mattress with high quality bedding that I'd say is way beyond the price-point of the hotel. The room was spotlessly clean and the cleaning staff were friendly and helpful. There's no breakfast offered (but a vat of free coffee and some juice every morning in the pool area). The staff are very personable and efficient (and tolerated cheerfully some comings and goings "en la madrugada"). The hotel is located on a relatively quiet backstreet, just a few blocks from the central plaza in one direction and the interesting market at Parque Santiago in the other.
