I am fully aware that usually "You get what you pay for", so for $350 MXN per night I was certainly not expecting luxury. What I as expecting however, after having made the reservation two months ahead of time, and a call the day of arrival to confirm my attendance, was a room. Not so much. This is the kind of place that gives Mexican businesses the bad reputation of being shifty and dishonest, except in this case, its the absolute truth. Upon our arrival at 5:00 pm, we were told that the three rooms we had booked and confirmed (twice) had been sold because we had not arrived early enough. At no time in any of the several phone conversations or emails were we told that we had to arrive at a specific time. We had offered to pre-pay. We had offered our credit card number with each communication with the Inn, but no, we were assured ("You have my word", he'd said) that our rooms would be waiting for us. Nope. Gone.

After a lengthy argument, we were told to wait while the owner cleaned a room that he referred to as his "house" for us. Our friends generously let us take the room, and headed back to Merida for the night, leaving four of us to share the room. So, instead of the 3 rooms we had booked and confirmed, we were given one, tiny room, complete with what had to be 30 year old mattresses whose springs threatened puncture wounds with every turn, one sad, flat pillow per double bed, and a toilet that flooded the room on the first flush. (When we told the owner that we had a flood in the room, he placed a towel on the floor and said "That's better."

So, in the event that sleeping on a park bench, which would be preferable, is not an option, here is my best advice: Do not make a reservation with the Posada, it will likely not be honoured. Just show up (preferably in the early afternoon) and ask for a room, but just be aware that you are likely being given a room that someone else has already booked and is expecting. If that won't work for you, find some extra cash and go up the road to the Best Western.

Rooms in the traditional Mayan-style cabanas are dark and unappealing, to us anyway, but the more modern rooms are quite comfortable. Gardens provide some shade.

The location, on a side street in Piste, is not particularly appealing, and Piste isn't much of a place. One stays here to visit Chichen Itza, and that's about it. (There are some cenotes around, but that's true nearly everywhere in Yucatan.)

We found the owners to be helpful and friendly, a definite plus. If you want an economical place to stay near Chichen Itza, this is definitely a good choice, though we wouldn't choose to stay here for an extended period.

I was told about this place at a hostel in Cancun. Posada Olalde Is very quiet and the rooms are clean with antique furniture. The son Victor speaks 4-5 languages and took me on a private tour of the cenotes in the area. He told me many stories about his culture and the places in the area. He really made my trip wonderful.
Thx,
Jodie U.S.A.

The Posada is off the main road, but if you ask anyone in the street they will indicate you the direction.

You will not see much of the owners, they will just show you your room, take the money and then leave you alone.

We had two double rooms: one was very nice, with some nice furniture, lampshades, mosquito net on the window. The other one had a broken window glued together with cellotape, absolutely no furniture apart from the two beds and not even an electricity plug. However, both rooms were clean, quiet and had working fans.

A bad surprise waited for us in the morning, when we found there was no running water and we couldn't find anyone who could help us on this, all the doors were locked and no one was to be found. We just left without brushing our teeth (luckily we had taken a shower the night before, but it would be nice to have another quick one in the morning just to freshen up...).

The posada has a nice wild garden with a big cage with budgerigars and mango trees, we collected a few mangos and had them for breakfast!

Cost: 250 pesos per double room per night.
