We had a wonderful, friendly and very professional welcome from our receptionist Rebecca, which was a particularly good start to our stay.
Our room was spacious, attractive and extremely comfortable with an enormous bed and we were fortunate to be on the quiet side of the hotel away from Merida's lively Plaza Espana, where local families can gather and enjoy themselves until quite late at night.
The hotel has its own restaurant and large and comfortable bar/lounge area with friendly bar staff. Unfortunately (and unusually for Spain) the bar closed at midnight so the chance of a late drink after a night out was limited.
Much has been made in some reviews here and elsewhere about the hotel's mock Roman interior. Whilst I can see that it wouldn't be to everyone's taste, nevertheless it is quite well done and a brave effort to restore the building and give the hotel a style of its own in keeping with the Roman history around it.
The hotel is perfectly located a short walk from all bars and restaurants and close enough to all the Roman ruins.
I agree with another reviewer that it was a pity the rooftop terrace and pool was closed, in our case during mid June. As it turned out Merida was in the middle of an unusually cold spell so we didn't miss the facility too much - however, it is worth checking first if a pool is a must for you.
We had only booked to stay for one night but wish we could have stayed longer.
