“Lots to Love : Delightful Decor, Comfortable Room, Good DIY Breakfast, Helpful Host & Staff”
Reviewed March 1, 2011

We chose this place on Calle 51 to be a little closer to the Paseo Montejo (having seen the Centro area several times). Nice to be able to check in at 1pm. Greeted by Reilly, the owner Jim's adorable well-cared for and leased dog, and by Havier, who speaks some English and offered us a choice of twoavailable rooms, either on the main floor by the lobby, or upstairs, Room #10. In spite of the climb up the stairs (part of the adventure!) we chose the "penthouse" area room that opened onto the upper balcony, fitted with plants and comfortable chairs and tables, lighted at night for reading and enjoying the night air. Good water pressure and lots of hot water in the shower - a definite plus for me ! , nice touches like a large container of shampoo in the bathroom, and beautiful colourful Talavera-style sink. Havier oriented us to the hotel briefly, and brought us the AC and TV remote controls as soon as we arrived. He also helped us with our bags up and down the stairs. Only one thing seemed odd, but I forgot to mention it to the host. There was a table light in the room, which was removed the second night, inexplicably. We like to read in bed, and found that was the only drawback....no easy way to have good reading light, for aging eyes ~! (we're both in our early 60's, and need good clear light for reading). There were adequate cabinets for hanging clothes and drawers for storing things and a vanity table, mirror and bench that came in handy. The large downstairs kitchen open to guests was beautifully decorated, very clean and breakfast was help-yourself from the kitchen, and eaten on tables in the open courtyard by the kitchen side by side with other guests. Very easy open feeling about the plac, but of course the front desk was always manned. and we had no worries about security. The room had a locking safe but we didn't bother to use it. We did lots of shopping in Merida, and the room was large enough to accommodate our purchases. Guests are allowed to use the large frig in the communal kitchen - we used it to store our left-over chicken salad from Costco lunch. Beer, water and soft drinks are available by asking the staff to unlock the beverges frig. - no problem, and very low cost. Take some with you to your room, before you ascend the winding staircase ! We were a little disappointed not to have a pool to cool off, although there is a hotel nearby that Peregrino has an arrangement with, that we could have taken advantage of, but didn't. It was very hot the week we were in Merida (Feb.22,23). The best thing that happened to us at this hotel is something that really saved us from a lot of trouble - Jim the owner and one of his staff ( Aaron, I think), managed to locate - on very short notice - a driver with a spacious Nissan sedan for us, so we could do more shopping (we didn't have our own car) and get back to our beach-house near Celestun, the next day. Our usual taxi was not available, and Jim's "can-do" attitude and guarantee that he could help us was a godsend ! We would highly recommend Hotel del Peregrino, for it's reasonable rates, easy-going breakfast, very helpful staff, and attractive decor, oh - and Reilly the welcoming pooch. If you need a pool on site, that's the only drawback. Also, we didn't need to use our laptop, so don't know if it would have worked here. Basic rule of staying and getting along in Merida - ask the hotel host and staff for advice and help - they're very knowledgeable and will go out of their way to meet your needs. Very grateful to Jim for his help in finding us a good-sized taxi and very good driver. If you stay in this area, don't miss the gift shops on Paseo Montejo, and Hennessey's Irish Bar !

Hotel Peregrino was a very relaxing stay for my wife and I. The room was quiet, cool, clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful. The location was excellent. We hope to return to the same hotel and the same room.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Peregrino. The staff were always really helpful and genuinely really lovely (as was all the people we met in Mexico for that matter)!

Out room was on the 1st floor, and was c;ean with a fabulous hot shower. The rate includes a self-help breakfast which was the best! Freshly made toast with condiments, fruit, yoghurt etc. Definitely got you going for the day! This used to be a hostel I believe, so there is also an open kitchen with the use of all the facilities if you wanted to make your own lunch and dinner at all.

Conveniently located for all Merida's sightseeing options, restaurants, Zocalo etc!

We stayed for a week, just after Christmas. Excellent location, just a few minutes walk to the main squares, and easy safe parking on the quiet street outside. Rooms were good, clean and basic with in room shower. The courtyard where breakfast is served is a good place to meet your fellow guests, and there is a supply of bottled wate r there to refill bottles, which is very convenient.
The real bonus is the roof top patio, where we met for beers at the end of the day to review activities and plan dinner.
The Canadian owner, Jim, really cares about his guests and all the staff are well trained, and very helpful and friendly.

Stayed for a week over New Year and had a great stay. Very quiet considering it's near the city center. Very clean rooms, helpful staff, easy parking, highly recommended.

Me and my spouse spend 3 weeks vacation in Mexico and we stayed in this hotel for the first couple nights. Location of the hotel was good. Close enough to the center to walk, but far enough to get all the traffic. We loved Merida, but we wished we had stayed in another place to get more sleep.

The room was clean, but there is a bar/club next to the hotel with very loud pop/dance music. We were very tired after the long flights to Mexico and we got a room on the second floor facing the bar. The music was so loud that even ear pluggs didn't work. Luckily, we manage to change another room on the first floor close to the reception. There was less noise to be able to sleep. Due to the jetlag, we wanted to sleep longer next morning, but it was impossible, since our room was on the first floor, so we can clearly hear all the conversations in the lobby and in the garden as if there are no walls. Of course, this wasn't a problem on the next morning, when we woke up early ourselves to take the tour.

I normally fall in sleep very easily, so I won't recommend this place to people who needs quiet environment to sleep. However the staff and the owner were very helpful and friendly, that's why we didn't bother to change the hotel during our 3 nights stay in Merida.

I don’t think we could have picked a better place to stay in Merida than Hotel del Peregrino. To be able to blend in with the city and local culture, while being totally at ease and comfortable made our stay unforgettable. The hotel was welcoming, clean, and comfortable, a great place to come home to after a long day sightseeing.
