but I will try anyway. Ana's is an oasis of peace in a bustling city, on a relatively quiet street a short walk to the center of town and Plaza Grande. Every building on the street is built right up to the sidewalk, Ana's only stands out because it is nicely painted. But once you go through the door, you walk through several ante-rooms to the open garden area where the breakfast area and the pool are, with four rooms at the back and one before the pool (which is a nice place to cool off after a day of walking.) There is also a covered sitting area with chairs and a hammock in the middle of the garden area, with cold water and soda available in the fridge.

We stayed here the first three and last three nights of our trip to Yucatán, and the five of us, average age 70, walked everywhere - to the market, the cathedral and Plaza Grande area, restaurants, shopping - everything we wanted to see was near enough to get to on foot. Ana is the perfect host, friendly and a great help with suggestions, directions and information, and if she doesn't know something (rare) she'll call someone. The daily breakfasts she prepares are delicious and varied, and the coffee is real (a lot of places give you hot water and a jar of Nescafe).

I plan to return to Mérida, and I definitely plan to stay at Casa Ana when I do.

Casa Ana was a brilliant place to start our trip around the Yucatan. The garden and patio area is beautifully done, a good place to read after a day's pottering. The room was clean and very tastefully decorated. Ana was enormously helpful, suggesting places to go and what free music was on in which square. Breakfast was lovely, a nice time to meet other guests and talk about what we were all up to.
The walk from town is only about ten minutes - I really enjoyed being that little bit away from the centre. We went to a lovely bar called Negrita - very near Ana's place, I would recommend that too.
All in all, great honest value and a little relaxing escape!

We had three nights in Casa Ana in late December, staying in the Buganbilia room. It was quiet, bright, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The courtyard garden and pool are quite gloriously colourful but tranquil, the breakfast in the airy dining area quite delicious. Ana said she doesn't offer eggs, because 'everyone wants something different' but the variety of bread fruits and jams we had was terrific.
Ana was a mine of helpful information and a really lovely host. I can't imagine a better place to stay in Merida if you want to feel really looked after and have value for money at the same time in a great central location.

Room Tip: the two first floor rooms are probably lighter and quieter than those on the ground floor, but it...

Casa Ana's location a ways away from the central plaza means a little more walking, but also that it's quieter at night. And, It's courtyard is so charming you are tempted to just hang out there anyway, rather than visit the wonderful plazas, churches and markets of Merida. Our room was very clean and the beds comfortable. Ana is very kind and accommodating, did our laundry, and helped us make arrangements for trips outside the city. A super bargain!

(English version below) Mi novia y yo nos quedamos en casa Ana Mérida un fin de semana. Nos encantó el lugar! Super acogedor, bien organizado, atmósfera increible y muy tranquilo.
Las duenias del lugar son muy amables y ofrecen buenos consejos sobre qué hacer, a dónde ir, etc durante los días que se esta en Merida. El desayuno es simplemente lo necesario, no muy grande, no muy reducido, sino suficiente fruta fresca, jugo, café y algun otro ítem según el día (huevos, pastel casero, pan, etc).
Las noches son tranquilas y se duerme confortablemente. El area de descanso con hamacas y un par de sillas en el patio es bastante bueno para descansar después de un día de turismo por la ciudad.
Altamente recomendable el lugar.

My girlfriend and I stayed there over a weekend and we loved it. Everything is just so nice and perfectly arranged. it is not a luxurious place, but is just comfortable and cozy enough as to make you wanting to spend the day there. Granted, the pool is merely decorative, but that is not really what you are there for. The quietness and nice environment of the place makes you relax and enjoy your holidays even more.
The breakfast is fresh and healthy and is just about right to start the day, don't expect big buffet or anything american, its just about the right amount of fruits, juice, coffee, maybe some eggs and/or cake to give the body the energy needed for a morning in Merida.
Location is good - decent walk to downtown and close enough to the long Avenue with Museums and other attractions.
All in all a good experience. You will not regret it as long as you see it as the B&B that it is, to spend the nights and maybe relax a little after a long day of tourism.

First we (my boyfriend and me) just wanted to stay 2 days in Casa Ana but it was so beautiful and with such a warm atmosphere that we extended our stay. The two ladys who own this place are wonderful and really caring. And every morning they prepared great diversified breakfasts with fresh fruits, eggs, coffee, bread etc. - more than just continental breakfast.
The center of Merida is just 10 min. away, so you can easily walk there.
I can just highly recommend this B&B and when I come back to Merida, I already know where I'm going to stay... :-)

Casa Ana was one of the highpoints of our trip to the Yucatan. The garden is so relaxing and beautiful that you wont want to leave. Ana has a frig by the pool so you can cool your beer and have a refreshing drink after a hot day of sightseeing. Ana knows everything about Merida... from where to find a vegetarian restaurant to the best guide to Uxmal. She will call a cab for you, and she'll arrange tours. Her breakfasts are works of art....so thoughtfully and presented that they were like minature art works and never the same breakfast twice. Many people comment on the walk to the main part of town but it was never an issue. Instead the walk functioned as an opportunity to see a real neighborhood. You can buy your liquor from one of the several neighborhood bodegas and have an opportunity to meet more kind and friendly people. Can't say enough good things about Ana and her lovely casa. You'll fall in love with her cute kitty named Doggie!
