I have now stayed at La Casa Lorenzo twice. Each visit has been absolutely delightful. I can therefore highly recommend a stay in this beautiful and well-appointed B&B.
Larry, or Lorenzo, is an entertaining and attentive host. He is full of information on how to get the most out of your Merida visit
La Casa Lorenzo is in an excellent location only a short walk to the main plaza where many of the main tourist attractions can be found. Merida has an lot of interesting cultural activities every week and most of these take place in and around the main plaza. The exceptionally lovely, must-see, tree-lined Paseo Montejo is only 3 blocks away.
The B&B is a beautifully restored colonial house with several interesting features. Each of the main rooms have original tiled floors with colorful patterns. The 5 bedrooms are all well-appointed and decorated in the traditional, distinctive and very colorful Mexican style.
The garden and pool area is a quiet and a comfortable place to spend time relaxing.
Wi-Fi, a computer station reserved for guests and free phone calls to the US were much appreciated.
Larry treats his guests to a hearty breakfast, varied daily, which I really appreciated.
When I first visited Mexico it took a bit of getting use to that in the restrooms everywhere in Mexico there is a bin next to the toilet. A sign informs you that you must deposit the toilet paper in the bin and not in the toilet. This is because the pipes are very narrow and easily get blocked. Larry, who is a bit of a techno-fiend, has installed US style plumbing, so this indelicate procedure does not apply to CL.
To sum up, CL really does have a lot to offer. A stay there is bound to be a pleasant and memorable experience.
