Hotel Casa Nobel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We only stayed for 2 days in Merida to see the city, but when we come again, we'll stay in this hotel again for sure. Everyone in the hotel is very friendly and open and you get help from directions to food explanation/recommendation over laundry service and free unexpected coffee in the morning. The day we left, we took a bus from the autobus station very early and didn't want to walk there sleepy as we were, so the owner made a taxi reservation the day before (the taxi showed up 5mins before expected - perfect service). As someone earlier mentioned, the rooms are very clean (at least ours was) and the area seemed totally safe. Police&firestation are just around the corner. To us the whole city seemed very safe to walk around, also at night.
This is family owned B&B style hotel. The hotel has 6 rooms. My family and I unfortunately got the worst room in this hotel. All other 5 rooms face the small pretty garden. Our room is the only one that's located in the center of the building. Because of this, our room has very poor natural lightening and ventilation. If we don't keep the air conditioning on, we feel suffocated inside the room because we don't get fresh air from the window. The worst part about this room, is that the owners place a refrigerator right in front of the door, as you can see from the picture. As of the location, the hotel is about 30 minutes away walking from the downtown area of Merida. There is nothing nearby the hotel, no restaurant, no grocery. Thus, if you choose to stay in this hotel, you will just have to take taxi or walk half hour everyday to eat out. The hotel staffs are friendly enough but only few young male staffs speak ok English. Overall, the hotel is ok but I would definitely not recommend it.
This is a family owned/run hotel. The family is amazing, they spoke English which was wonderful for me and my daughter. The some was super, he provided directions and anything we needed. Abraham, who works in the evening was equally as helpful. They we are all very sweet and friendly, which is great when traveling with children. The room was VERY clean and neat. The hotel has a great Mexican feel with the beautiful tiles on the floor and furniture. The pool and out door patio area was so pretty and relaxing. The hotel is close to the Centro which was perfect. We will be back again next year for our trip to Mexico.
This place was great! We woke up too early to enjoy the coffee and weren't there long enough to use the pool, but the owners were very nice. They gave us a map of the city and directed us to a wonderful Mayan restaurant. It's a little bit too far out from the center of town to walk, but we took an uber and it was only $20 pesos. Would definitely stay here again!
This is a great little quiet hotel with great staff who are so helpful. We stayed here for 2 nights, and found that it offered all that we needed. Comfortable beds, quiet relaxing room, swimming pool, and coffee & cookies to start the morning. Staff were helpful and friendly. Is a short bus ride from the central plaza of downtown, but was worth it, since we enjoyed our stay immensely
My husband and I stayed at Casa Nobel for a week in early January, the first week of a three month trip through southern Mexico. The highlight of our stay was our hosts and their staff, most of whom speak Spanish; however the two university student sons converse easily in English and Dad is fluent in French. Everyone was always ready to help, which contributed greatly to our comfort and enjoyment. We appreciated the information the family provided, the questions they answered and the arrangements they made (for example, a cab to the bus depot). The distance from town did not bother us as we like to walk and enjoyed being a bit away from the Centro. Except for the neighbour's barking dog, which did not bother us, we found this spot to be very quiet. Our room had a fridge, which we appreciated as we occasionally chose to save lunch left-overs for consumption at supper. The garden and pool area was a welcome retreat after a busy day exploring Magical Merida. We usually chose to pay for a small breakfast of fruit, yoghurt, granola and coffee, which we ordered the night before. Once or twice we arranged for a more substantial breakfast, which option we really appreciated on those occasions when we went on full-day tours. Our room was clean and well serviced daily. We had one of two rooms in the original house and, while we enjoyed the dining area that came with this room, we did find it a bit stuffy. Another time we might request one of the rooms in the small, two-story, newer portion. These appeared to have windows on two sides, allowing for some cross-ventilation. Guests in these rooms, however, had to walk to the garden to take breakfast. A bit farther, and less private, but still delightful. All in all; great value for the money.
His little boutique hotel is perfect. We arrived to a welcoming family who showed us our lovely room, and every question we had was answered with their fantastic. Knowledge of the area. The location is great with it being a 10 to 15 minute walk to the centre, enabling you to walk through the lovely streets.We received tea and cookies in the morning and had a very enjoyable couple of nights in our comfortable, clean room, with air con and a fan, which we used more often.We highly recommend this place as it is great value for money.
I needed a hotel room in Mérida over New Year's Eve on short notice and found Casa Nobel...I'm very glad I did. For a simple guest house this was a lovely hotel. The facilities were both very clean and very well-maintained - nothing felt worn or run down, and the outdoor area with bright flowers was a cheerful place to have a morning coffee. There were even free parking spots available for my rental car. The family and staff who manage the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. One night when I came in they asked me to stop a moment - when my dubious Spanish caught up with the conversation, it turned out that they were very concerned about a nearby barking dog keeping me awake, and wanted me to know that they had earplugs if I needed them. I did not (the dog was not loud) but the gesture was thoughtful and appreciated. I've heard many a barking dog at night in Mexico, but never encountered a hotel staff that went out of their way to deal with it! And as for the Spanish, the hotel's proprietor speaks English and French as well.
Stayed one evening, partially because of the reviews I read on this site. My experience was a little different than other contributors. The room was clean (ish) with two beds, a single and a twin. The bedding has seen some hard service and there was a strange funk in the air. The breakfast consisted of a carafe of coffee which was good and a bag of coconut flavoured cookies, not the breakfast I was contemplating. Everything in the room was in good working order, from the shower to the tiny television set. I would stay there again, if the rooms were at a $30.00 price tag, which would be fair.
I chose this hotel based on price and location. I was in Merida for 4 nights. This hotel is only 2 years old and so you will find everything in working order, including internet and remote control A/C units in each room. Internet connection is by wireless only, so make sure you have the ability for wireless on your laptop. Power is 120V a.c. just like USA. Each room has a small flat screen TV with a remote control. There are about 80 channels all in Spanish. However many of the sitcoms are in English with Spanish subtitles. There is a Spanish version of CNN. Each room has a mini refrigerator, but be sure to plug it in when you arrive. Room has one paddle fan over the bed also. Individual bathroom, No tub, shower only. TP, soap, and shampoo provided. Lovely garden with sidewalk, lawn, gazebo and small in-ground pool. 8 foot tall stone wall surrounds the property keeping out unwanted guests and animals. Hotel is located directly across the street from police station. This hotel is small and has only 5 rooms that I am aware of. There is no lobby, no food or beverage facilities or ice machines (which means quiet). Floors are tiled of course. A 20 minutes walk is required to get to the center of Merida. Walks are somewhat fatiguing since many streets are stone and many sidewalks are crumbled and narrow. You will definitely need walking shoes if you plan on walking much. Finding a place to eat is a task. There are no signs in front of establishments that would be helpful in finding a place to eat, with the exception of larger hotel restaurants. Looking up and down streets will be of no help. You will actually have to walk the length of the block to see if there are any stores of interest to you. I ate some really good spanish tortas, beans and rice just 5 blocks north of the hotel next to the tuxedo rental shop. There are closed on Tuesdays and only open after 7p.m. It's an outdoor seating arrangement in the hot weather, with plastic Coke Table and Chairs with tablecloth. I highly recommend this place. Prices are very modest also. Speaking of coke...Mexican coke is made differently than American Coke. They use cane sugar and the difference is remarkable. Try it and you will see for yourself. I drank lots of coke since it was soooooo good. My pizza place was closed for vacation but you should try it rescoldosbistro.com . Its only 3-4 blocks from the hotel. Enjoy your stay. BTW I took the ADO-gl bus and it was quite nice. I recommend spending the extra 10 bucks. There is a direct bus from hotel fiesta americana to the airport but it costs 490 pesos.
