Thankfully I did my research to stay in Merida especially in Casa de Las Columnas! About a 15-20 minutes walk from central lies a places that exhibits tranquility, simplicity, beauty, culture, family, and authenticity! I traveled with my dad and stayed here for 4 days/3 nights. This small establishment is family-run, and we instantly bonded with the owners. Everyone was very kind and hospitable which made it feel like home. The hotel is built and decorated with antique pieces literally from floor to ceiling. I couldn't get enough of it! The walk from the hotel to central benefited us since it gave us the opportunity to see the character of this historic town on foot. There is also a grocery store called AKI just around he corner where we had bought our snacks, fruit, and water. It's a town that feels like we've always lived there. Next time I'm in Merida, I would definitely stay there again! If you want to experience culture right up front, well my friend, this place is it!

After driving all day from Tulum, our B&B was a welcome site! It is about 8-10 blocks outside of the city center, but it worked out perfect. They have off street parking for your car at night, and street parking in front during the day. The courtyard is absolutely charming, the rooms large and nicely decorated. The staff is very friendly - the language barrier was a bit of the challenge with some of the staff but we all managed quite well. There is a supermarket a short walk across the street in case you need anything. We ended up parking the car and hailing a cab - they come by every few minutes - to get into town (about 30 pesos - $3 each way). Easy decision to let the locals do the driving as Merida can be super busy. Since the B&B is located on the outskirts of town, it was easy to get on the main roads to see the flamingos, which are about 2.5 hours away. Free internet was available as well. Would definately return!

Incredibly beautiful and sympathetically renovated colonial house with attentive and helpful staff. It was a delight to wake every morning and open the door of my bedroom, beautifully furnished with elegant antiques, and step out into the columned courtyard with the pool, waterfall and palm trees.

The owners of the hotel (Jose and Nidia) treat every guest like a member of the family, with a wide smile and offers of lifts to various places, advice on where to get the best meals, what events are on and where in the town, help with booking flights, trips, anything you need. NOTHING is too much trouble and you really feel welcome. In fact, I extended my stay by another week, I liked it so much!

Drinks and snacks of various kinds can be purchased for a small fee all day long, and the continental breakfast actually consists of Mexican pan dulce (sweet breads), mixed fresh fruit salad, freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee, and is served on the beautiful covered patio, overlooking the pool.

Quite centrally located, it is only four blocks from Plaza Santiago, two from the zoo (worth seeing!), and nine from the very centre of town: so easy walking distance to most places you will want to see.

All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to wake up in the morning and KNOW they are in colonial Merida!!!

A beautifully decorated, comfortable, family-run hotel outside the main tourist district – about 20 minutes walk into the main plaza. Each of the large double rooms is furnished according to a theme and is an absolute visual delight. However, the same things that make it so visually attractive also contribute to its drawbacks. The lovely ceramic tiling and layout around a central courtyard mean that all conversation in the courtyard area is audible from every room, and the management is not fussy about asking the guests for a bit of consideration for other guests after a certain hour. Breakfast is adequate, and the fruit and juice are fresh and very yummy. Our laundry was not returned when promised, but the management sent it on to us the following day at their expense. The family members really do go out of their way to make one welcome and to ensure a pleasant stay. Highly recommended, if you don’t mind the walk into the centre.

The Casa is a gem of a B&B in the midst of Merida, an easy walk to historic sites, cafes, churches, museums and shops. The sidewalks near the hotel are being repaired -which makes for quite a mess- but still it is easy to walk around (just pay attention). The hotel's staff were super-friendly and helpful, the room comfortable, clean and outfitted with great air conditioning and ceiling fan, pretty furniture and a fully tiled shower with perfect pressure. The price is right, too, and includes all taxes and a continental breakfast of cereal, sweet bakery bread, fresh fruit, coffee and fresh oj. The gardens, courtyards and patios are lovely and colorful and peaceful. A true bargain in the city that I do recommend.

We ended up at "Casa de Las Columnas" after a nigthmare in another Hotel in Merdida and thank God this Hotel was the best place in Merida.
It's an old Colonial House with only a few rooms 13 or 15 something like that. Each room is totally different. The decoration is unique and beautiful. We stayed at "Frida Kalo" room. Amazing room! beautiful and Big.
The pool was unique! the common areas are cozy and believe me when it's 106F degrees you just want to stay in the pool or laying down around it.
You can't go wrong with this place. The service was amazing. The owners run the place and they have few employees that are nice and always willing to help.
If you go to Merida it's a MUST!
