I wanted to love it, but the lack of ventillation was suffocating

The location of the hotel is excellent, just a few meters away from the central square, and accessible to bus stations and convenient public transportation. The interior design of the hotel is beautiful, among one of the nicest boutique hotels I've seen. My room was situated on the third floor, and even though it was not a particular hot night, the humidity of the room was almost unbearable. There is only one window located in the bathroom, and it is not enough given the size of the room with high vaulted ceilings. We switched to an adjacent room in hopes of improving the situation-- but it did not make a difference. I understand it is a historic building, but I feel they really need to cut out a few more windows to make the rooms more comfortable. I would recommend stopping at this hotel for lunch, breakfast or drinks.

Could be romantic

Except for no computer working during my stay, the hotel was very nice, the garden patio peaceful and romantic at night. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The pool was under repair 2 days after my arrival until my departure. I have read other reviews and would agree the toilet, commode or john was too close to the wall, shower good but sink area small.

Good place but no free parking!

The hotel was well located in the town center but there was no free hotel parking. You had the choice between a valet parking (140 pesos) or a parking behind the hotel open 8.00 am to 2.00 am (15 pesos/h). The hotel is really charming but some room have no window. Nice outside patio with a small swimming pool. To summarize a really nice place for the price.

Rancho's for more international food. Chaya Maya for yucatan food but be aware of what you are ordering, it could be very strange meals depending of your taste.

The cathedral, main square, palacio del govierno and several museums are just a short walk away. The best restaurants in Merida (Portico del Peregrino, Amoro, Panchos & La Chaya Maya) are a short walk away.

Make sure you go out back!

The place is BEAUTIFUL! Make sure you take advantage of the patio out back! I am not a person who needs a lot of space when I travel but....the room was small and our bathroom was even smaller. Your knees hit the wall when you use the commode. It's location is perfect. You are right in the middle of Merida!

Great location and value for your money!

This little Boutique Hotel is very clean! There is No elevator due to the fact that it was built in the early 1900's and it would have lost its beauty. The stairs are wide and easy to go to and from your room. It is located almost across from the Gran Plaza, very near the oldest cathedral in North America and close to all shopping. The Front Desk staff, Joaquin and Rigel were very helpful, very friendly, gracious, attentive and did everything to make us feel welcome and at home. Also, unlike so many other hotels, the hotel food was excellent, nicely presented and very tasty, especially their Pizzas made in the stone oven out in the back Garden area where you can sit and enjoy the ambiance. The photographs shown in their website do this little hotel a lot of justice in so far as the Rooms, the Restaurant, the outside Pool area with the hammocks, the eating area in the Garden and the outside Bar areas are concerned. The waiting staff was also very attentive to our needs, The room we stayed in was on the 3rd floor. It had a balcony facing out front to Calle 60, had a very comfortable king size bed with tent drapes around the bed which reminded us of "Tales of 1001 Arabian Nights". The bathroom was small and the only negative thing about the room was, that the A/C unit in the room was extremely noisy. Never the less, we would certainly recommend it to anyone who is planning to visit Merida, be it for just for a couple of days or a couple of weeks like we did. If you go there by car or rent a car while there, the hotel has Valet parking for a reasonable small charge per night. If we ever did go back, we would consider staying there again, as it was good value for the cost per night.

Nice, but below my expectations

Bathroom is really small. There is no window in room, but a wooden door to the balcony, so a little sunlight would be nice to have. Rooms are only cleaned before 2PM, so you cannot sleep late. Front desk called frequently to the room to ask for permission to go in and clean. Late checkout is charged for 1/2 day rate, and wouldn't allow an extra hour. Pool area and hamocks are really nice, and location is fantastic. Nice hotel, and great value.

biggest complaint of the hotel

the bathroom had the sewer smell all the time that's so unbearable, and the shower is sometimes hot, and sometimes not so hot. Sink is never hot or even warm... Just not what I am used to.

Pleasant Surprse

The service was excellent! This hotel has real character... Loved the cozy atmosphere. There was live music poolside on the weekends. The staff is very personable well beyond what I was expecting. We had valet service so no need to worry about parking our car, the food was good we especially loved the pizza! The evening treats left in our rooms were right from the oven that day. Being able to interact with the owners was a real plus also. We really enjoyed out stay and will return here the next time we are in Merida!
