“awful experience cockroaches in bedroom”
Reviewed August 7, 2008

We spent two nights at the Tryp Merida during the theatre festival. How it is classed as four star hotel is baffling. We were told that they had no rooms with double beds-only twin beds put together. There was a smell of damp in the bedroom (3rd floor room 329) and on the second night we came back late to find a huge cockroach in the bathroom. We asked to be moved and were told that we would have to move to two single rooms as there were no doubles left at the rate that we had booked the room. We refused and eventually the night porter told the receptionist to move us to the fourth floor where the "superior" rooms were. Never again.

Modern hotel recommended to people with own car,have a little parking.The distance to central Merida is more or less 40 minutes by foot and in summer can be unbearable.Between two commercial centers,one a carrefour with a McDonald`s and the other bar-oriented and noisy with people and cars.
Big room and bathroom,clean but with a stunning kitsch decor,roman sheets,mirrors all over and with a olympic torch lamp included !Good a/c which is necessary,but water in tub changing hot to cold continuously,was impossible to keep one or another.Check in and out easy and friendly.
Good price through Melia chain hotel website,but without offer I recommended others hotels in citycenter

Stayed July 2008

This is a weird building on an "out-of-town" shopping/dining complex.Well,its nearer the modern Merida but a 20 minute walk from the end of the roman bridge,40 minutes from the old part of the town.And a bit on its own,along with a supermarket and a couple of quiet restaurants low on character.Quiet in october,anyway.
Helpful staff but professional rather than friendly.
Nice room,clean,weird decor.Expensive,I thought.
It was the only hotel in Merida on Tripadvisor with space but looking in town there would appear to be many more reasonable hostels that would have suited us better.
Maybe Merida is a destination for older more affluent travellers?

Stayed at the Tryp for a week earlier in the year. Staff very friendly and prices per night were very reasonable. Nice clean hotel with fair sized bedrooms / bathrooms.
The hotel is probably 20 - 30 minutes walk from the town centre - depending on how fit you feel and it is accessed by the back road over the old roman bridge. Taxi is only a couple of quid to Plaza d' Espania ( the main square ) and hotel will arrange them for you. There is a big Carrefour at the back of the hotel which is not the prettiest of sights, but doesn't really bother you (higher floors have better view over City). It is very handy, however, for supplies and cheap drink. There is a McDonald right by hotel and a small mall oppossitte with bars, resteraunts, bowling alley and few shops. Hotels position very handy for everything really and would definateley stay there again. Worth booking on Tryps / Sol Melia own website for best prices.
