I was attending a conference being held at this hotel in Merida and my wife and I spent 4 nights here. The room we had was pretty sad and crying out for renovation and a damn good cleaning. About the only positive comment I can make is that the room came with free WiFi, but that is it. The windows of our 7th floor room were broken and did not close properly letting in the 40C heat necessitating continuous running of the air-conditioner which mercifully enough worked (it didn’t for a colleague staying in another room) but was very loud and kept us awake at night. The shower was miserable with no water pressure and black mould everywhere. The tables, sink tops and fittings were dirty and appeared to have not be cleaned regularly. Despite there being a space for it, there was no bar fridge, perhaps it had been stolen by a previous guest. With dozens of TV stations on the TV, there was not a single one that broadcast in English. In the lobby of the hotel the Mens public toilets were a disgrace and like the room, did not appear to be cleaned regularly and on top of this the urinals did not flush properly which was very disconcerting and unhygienic. Fortunately, as an invited speaker at the conference I did not have to pay for this accommodation so not sure what the prices are like. However, if you are looking for a hotel in Merida, do your self a favour, and avoid this one.
