Charming colonial-era hotel in an excellent location Oct 12, 2016
We booked this hotel through United Airlines when we purchased our online tickets with the airline. We thought it was a good deal at less than $40/night and at the end of our 4 night stay, still think it was a great value.

First of all, with over 50 rooms the hotel is ideally located in the historic district of Merida, just a few minutes walk away from the main square of the city, the Plaza Grande, where you can see the majestic cathedral known locally as 'Catedral de San Ildefonso.'

Just in front of the hotel is a small park where vendors set up their stalls in the evenings and during daytime, a nice shady place to take a break after walking around in the heat which is prevalent the whole year round.

We had a standard room on the third floor. It was clean and comfortable with attached bathroom, good Wi-Fi connection, Cable TV and a safety deposit box but without a refrigerator, which was a bit disappointing as we could not stock up on cold drinks. However, two free bottles of drinking water were provided everyday. Also, on the same floor there is a small swimming pool and from up there one can have a great view of the Merida cathedral and surroundings.

Breakfast was not included in the room rate. However, we ate in the hotel's restaurant situated on the ground floor, as the prices were quite reasonable. There is a pretty courtyard next to it too. This restaurant becomes a bar in the evenings and table/chairs are set out in the open air in front of the building where the atmosphere is lively and bustling with activity.

As mentioned earlier, the convenient location of this hotel made many places within easy walking distance, e.g. grocery stores, money changers, tourist office, etc. The reception staff speaks fairly good English and there is also a tour agent at the front desk. In fact, we bought our excursion to Chichen Itza (to be reviewed later) from her.

I believe the hotel used to be a Catholic seminary in the 19th century which certainly adds to the charm of the building's design. The only drawback is not having a elevator, particularly if your room is on the top floor. Climbing up the stairs on tired legs after a hectic day of sightseeing/walking around the city can be quite wearisome!

All in all, accommodation at this lovely old hotel in the heart of the vibrant city of Merida is pleasant and comfortable.
