The Gran Real is located a few blocks from the Cathedral and main attractions of historico centro Merida. Walking in, the lobby area is very impressive with bright lights and classic furniture with a mix of modern. Check in was easy, the staff are very accommodating and can understand English well. The room was a double with two beds, dresser, desk, and full bath...a great bathtub, something you don't find usually at this price range in Mexico. The rooms are clean with free wifi that works pretty well, TV, though you only get English movies on occasion, toiletries are provided and the towels are like bath sheets..very nice touch.
There is a restaurant and bar area, though we did not have breakfast included in our rate, so did not eat there as there are a lot of places within walking distance. There is elevator access to the upper floors, and a beautiful big pool outside. The rooms face into the courtyard pool area, most with small balconies and sliding doors for fresh air. It is very quiet for the most part, though the ceilings and walls have no insulation from noise, so you can hear when a chair is pulled out or a soft muttering every now and then. Its to be expected in an older hotel in Centro. There are in room safes for valuables, though I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable at all here.
Its a beautiful hotel with many modern amenities and the price was quite reasonable for what you get.
