“urban oasis”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

although the term seems overused in the reviews i can't find a better term to describe it. Behind the modest blue wall a beautiful courtyard and stunning pool. we booked the suite on the front above the living quarters and it came with a private patio (no view but great for chilling out) that we really enjoyed. The breakfast is not to be missed and came with fresh fruit, fresh juices, eggs or other main dish, fresh french bread, delicious coffee and some form of amazing desert (yes desert for breakfast) all for $8. We loved the pool and the fact that there were only about 7 rooms so very few guests. Jan and Rita were very helpfull with local tips and trips to do. The only ugh was the spotty internet but i know Jan was working on correcting this.
We will be back here again.

Room Tip: book the room at the front with the patio

What a lovely place this is. A ten minute walk from the city centre and once your pass the door, you'll experience an urban oasis with the warmth hospitality of Jan and Rita. We had a spacious room with a bubble bath and we felt like royals. Also the custom made mexican breakfast was muy excellente! Thumbs up for Jan and Rita!

Rita and Jan have created a lovely, small hotel and are wonderful hosts. We stayed here for five nights and they were always happy to advise on the itinerary for the next day. The room was very clean and had all the amenities you could wish for. The swimming pool was very clean and nice for dip at the end of the day. The breakfasts were different each day which was a nice touch.

I stayed here twice on a recent visit to Mérida. It is an extremely pleasant oasis in the city. The courtyard is lovely and built around a small swimming pool. The whole place is impeccably clean and isolated from street noise. The rooms are very spacious, clean, and nicely appointed. Good beds and nice bedding. Bathrooms are very large with big showers.
Breakfasts are offered as an addition and are beautifully served in the courtyard.
The best part of all is the the hosts, Rita and Jan, are very welcoming, friendly, and helpful with any travellers' needs. They are full of good suggestions about where to eat, from whom to rent a car, and tours offered.
I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: I stayed in the two upper rooms at the west and these were both very good -but I don't think the...

The two of us stayed in Suite 1 and it was a very nice experience. Beautiful, small property with a nice courtyard and "hacienda" pool. Plenty of space for lounging and chatting with the other guests. Breakfast, though not included, gave the day a good start. Location was perfect for us, as we like to be near, but not in the center of towns we visit. Best part were the innkeepers, Rita and Jan, who seemed sincere about helping their guests, and providing useful information. Overall a pleasant stay in Merida.

Always good to be back here. A really home away from home feeling. Location is great, centric but in a quiet street in Santiago. Due to the fact that the have just 6 rooms, it will never get crowded or noisy in the hotel and patio. Rooms are spacious and tasteful decorated and have all you need: flatscreen, wifi, airco etc. The owners are more than happy to provide you with any kind of information for your visits in the city or trips outside of the city.

You may look high and low but you won't find better. Everything was just as described in the web sight. Very close to Centro Merida. Easy walk to main square. Breakfast was very good and lots of it. Very Mexican Style We have been to Merida a couple of times and will be back next year

Room Tip: All the rooms are the best I have encountered in Merida.
