Hotel Colonial
Ranked #29 of 104 Hotels in Merida
Reviewed 27 October 2013

I had two rooms, the first one (316) had no balcony, big enough for me, it wasnt noisy. The other room (301) with the balcony where my parents stayed, it was noisy, you can hear the people talking outside on the street at 3am. People at the front desk wasn't too friendly, bellman was nice and very helpful. The hotel is like two blocks from the main plaza, the cathedral etc, Location is great

Room Tip: i think the rooms with no balcony are nicer than the others

My husband and I have been going to Merida during the winter for several years now to get away from our cold weather in NY. We tried out the Colonial along with two other hotels. While we liked all three of the hotels we fell in love with the Colonial. It is only two blocks from the main town square, has many good places to eat nearby, as well as the best breakfast buffet in town, has a manager who speaks good English, but most of all the staff there is so warm and welcoming. While the accommodations are not fancy they are very comfortable and the people we've met there are the main reason we keep returning to Hotel Colonial.

I recommend this hotel very highly. The manager speaks English and is so helpful. The staff make you feel at home. We spend 3+ months at this hotel. It is truly a home away from home. Breakfast at the hotel is good everyday. Many fine restaurants in walking distance, just two blocks from the main plaza and night life. It's just a perfect location and affordable.

This is a great location; it is walking distance to the main plaza. It also has a very attractive small pool. We had a room with three doubles, (doubles on the smaller side, but my husband and I could still share one bed), which was nice for our family of 4. The staff were very helpful. The one big downside, is that we were there over the weekend and it was quite noisy in the hallways of the hotel late into both nights. The sound carries a good way, in the way of having a bit of a open middle to the hotel.

Rather you are staying a few days or a few months, the Hotel Colonial is the perfect place for your stay in Merida. It is just two blocks from the main plaza, close to other parks, the main market, restaurants, and night life. The rooms are not only comfortable but spotless. The rooftop deck is perfect to sun in the morning and to relax in the evening with a drink. The manager, Jorge, and the bellboy, Jose, are both bilingual and go out of their way to see that your stay is all your could want.

We stayed here while we did some business at the US consulate. The hotel was great, clean with all the amenities, and each room great individual unit air conditioning, which was important since Merida is so hot. Free wi-fi in the room, albeit not super fast, was very helpful. Parking was included, even though it was two blocks away, it felt secure to leave our rental there with a very nice older gentlemen who watched the lot for the hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet not included by reasonable price. Pool was small and not a lot of places to hang out, but it was everything we needed. Price was very reasonable (we actually walked around the plaza by the cathedral and inquired about prices and looked at rooms and it was the best we found) and location was centrally located, on the same street with local artisan cooperatives and a block away from the main plaza.
