“Nice and comfortable”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

We enjoyed our short stay at this hotel... It's got all that a traveller is looking for. El Castellano is central, comfortable and a good value for money. The room was big and the fact that you get another sink outside the bathroom makes it the more comfortable especially when you're sharing the room with 2 other people. The food was so good that we were sorry that we didn't get to stay for at least another night.

The Catellano was recommended as a great hotel, safe and in the city center, and at an affordable price. That was indeed the case. It is more basic as for example the Hilton (where we got to stay a couple of days more), but nicely kept (a little older), excellent front desk service, wifi, breakfast restaurant, business center...a good option. We would return to this hotel.

Very good location. Our room was spacious with two double beds, table, chairs, and a very large window we could see a big part of the city. The room did not have mini bar but had free wi-fi.
In the bathroom the amenities and the size of the towels could have been better.Very helpful in the reception.In the restaurant the choices for dinner were few but the breakfast included a wide variety of food and desserts.

We spent one night in Merida on an excursion to the ruins at Uxmal through Royal Resorts (they own this hotel) and it was a letdown from the 5 star treatment at the Royal Haciendas in Playa del Carmen. It had the feel of a business hotel, the rooms are average and dated, and could use a good deep clean and or/renovation. They come with in room coffee pots and bottled water, but you are charged for the actual coffee and water so be careful. Our window wouldn't close all of the way unless the air conditioner was on (it pushed on the window and kept it sealed) so we could hear the street noise outside. One of the other travelers in our group couldn't get the lock on their room to latch completely, a little concerning. RR claims this is a 5 star hotel, but they have some work to do to reach that designation! Our breakfast was included and it was really good. The buffet is huge with a lot of variety and well prepared food. Overall, just an OK experience....

The room had great views of Merida. There was a sort of serving hatch with a wash basin and fancy mirror, plus a full bathroom with another washbasin. His and Hers! It worked quite well. No mini bar. The coffee machine was good but you had to pay for the coffee for two and they only provided creamer for one. The gym was well equipped, the pool was nice but was in the shade nearly all day so we were the only people who used it. The breakfast room was very large and the menu covered just about every type of food you would want on a buffet - and a few more such as roast potatoes, spicy pork, chilli sauce and guacomole (for breakfast!)
They would make fried eggs and omelettes to order. Would have liked the option of toast. We did not eat there at night as there were loads of lovely restaurants nearby - some with live music and open courtyard, some with chilled out music and good air conditioning. The tour on the Guar Guar bus was fantastic and a good way to experience Merida. The hotel was easy walking distance from the main square and other attractions. Downside - although were on a no smoking floor - the smoking floor was one floor above us and the smell drifted down. Lifts were very small and very hot, and you had to wait a while if the hotel was busy. Overall good and would go there again,

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.

This was a time share exchange and had everything we wanted except a peaceful night!
Room, staff, location, food and services were excellent.
However noisy music at night was disturbing but it might just have been because we were on the first floor.
