it a great pick to stay near downtown and go for a walk to main places near to principal park in the city. great parking place.

If you have spent time off the beaten path in Mexico, this hotel will be what you expect. It is not elegant, but a good value and has the taste of a classic Mexican hotel. About 8 blocks from the Plaza. The restaurant is average for the Yucutan, which in our view is below average for Mexico. I will probably look for another hotel next time, but it was ok.

We stayed here our first night in Merida and were so pleased. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful both on checkin and checkout. We rented a suite - well worth the extra money. The bed was fabulous, and the bathroom was luxurious. There is a very nice restaurant in the hotel that served an authentic breakfast to get you going for the day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

good hotel, liked it. got a much better price by making reservation online.

Excellent and quiet room. Staff was outstanding. Helped in getting me the required tours of Uxmal. Always helpful with directions. Outstanding breakfast. Am looking forward to a return, perhaps in November. ---david coxwell

Comfort and friendliness. Staff was eager and ready to render service.

We traveled every day, and could easily walk to bus stations from the hotel or catch a taxi or bus in front of the hotel. The pool was disappointing, but in every other way the hotel was great

Excellent quiet location, close to all, walking distance to park and zoo. Excellent restaurant if you like the native food. Hotel is clean and cosy ; a place I always stay when visiting family and friends in Merida

Visited; a Mayan Temple, downtown, city tour, and Progreso ocean beach. Better than Puerto Escondido.

This hotel has basic amenities and friendly staff. The room was clean but missing refrigerator and safety box. On the plus side there is free wireless internet access and the hotel is well situated.

Very nice service. Not the best location but not far from the "Centro". We had nothing to complain about. Learn to use the buses (autobus), well worth it. We really enjoyed our stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Residencial. It was clean, comfortable and everything worked okay. The food was good at the restaurant with average prices. The people at the 24 hour lobby office spoke fairly good English. It is situated in an older neighborhood part of town with quite a bit of traffic. The Central Park and the Zoo are both many blocks away in opposite directions from the hotel. For $50 a night (Nov.2010) I would go back again.

Overall our stay at the hotel was wonderful. The price was perfect, the location was eight blocks from the zocalo. We did have some noisy neighbors over the weekend but that could happen anywhere. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a clean place on a bargain budget. The ambiance of the hotel is wonderful, the staff very helpful with all our needs. Breakfast was good at the hotel but dinner was atrocious. Again it could be what I ordered.

Very clean and professional.

free bottled water every day. every thing else was fine. enjoyed the restaurant for breakfast every morning.

Hotel was clean & friendly. Restaurant & bar average. Hotel charges for water after the first bottle. Very nice City but walking from hotel was somewhat difficult due to traffic and poor & narrow sidewalks. Six or more block walk to a much better variety of restaurants. I am 70 & enjoy walking however it could be hard for older folks.

It was ok.

there bad a/c, i get only two towels, there have no internet service and much more......

Is an excellent option to visit Mérida. Great deal in the price and excellent location. Very confortable.

staff were great - friendly and helpful. I left my glasses on a tour bus and [...]managed to track them down and have them returned.
