“Modern furnished rooms, located on Paseo de Montego, very good buffet breakfast.”
Reviewed 3 April 2013 via mobile

From the outside the hotel doesn't look like much. Even the corridors look dark and seem like a rabbit warren. But wait....the rooms are a lot better!

Room is very clean with modern furnishings and is quiet. The bathroom also clean. Wifi and cable TV coverage very good.

The buffet breakfast was very impressive in terms of selection and quality. The egg chef knows how to cook eggs :)

Staff are professional friendly and helpful.

The only downside for me is the location. Its around 20-30min walk to the zocolo (town centre). However, it is located amongst the grand old mansions on Paseo de Montego.

We stopped for a night in this hotel on our way to chichen itza. The hotel is in a good location and the check in was fairly easy. The rooms and the toilets were neat and clean. The staff was courteous. The breakfast was thrown in with the room and it was ok. The wifi was free and good connection. The city centre was fairly close and the place had a nice feel. The staff was nice, but like most places in Mexico, don't speak English, but that was manageable. We did not use the restaurant except for breakfast, so can't comment. Though it was on a busy road, sleep quality was good!

We have stayed at Conquistador several times. They have an extremely nice and attentive staff. This place is beautiful from the moment you arrive. I love the architecture outside and in. The pool on the roof is quite nice but not so deep at 4.5ft. Stiil a nice way to cool off and look around the city from above. We have taken a lot of pictures from here. The breakfast buffet is wonderful with the yucatecan food we love. The atmosphere here is so relaxing also. We like to set in the lobby and enjoy the music from the
dinning area as we contemplate our next outing. The rooms are spacious and clean. The maid staff is very friendly and thorough. When we need a ride, the staff is very efficient at getting us exactly the transportation we need. This is also a good location to start your walking trips and see the Paseo Mantejo. We will continue to go back, again and again.

Room Tip: The rooms in the front on the upper levels give you the best view of city and street life.

I stayed here in 2006, and the memories of this hotel still last. The rooftop pool is great for all ages. The view from our balcony revealed the beauty of Merida, Mexico. Restaurants are in walking distance. I'd love to visit this place again someday.

We stay here on business once every year. The Saturday and Sunday brunch is unsurpassed for the variety and flavor of Yucatecan cooking. Besides the buffet, a chef grills for you fresh fish fillets, steaks, pork chops, fried eggs for breakfast, and omelets. A piano player adds to the atmosphere. The lobby is spacious with seating areas. The front "porch" is also a pleasant place to sit and watch the horse carriages and bike riders along the Paseo Montejo with its old, gleaming white restored mansions of former hennequin producers. The archaeological museum is across the street, and the old town center is a ten-block walk away. The business center is open till 5. The rooms are all the same--spaceous, nicely decorated with a nice bathroom. The marble halls are cool and dark, lighted with a window at each end. I'm always glad to go to El Conquistador and get a sopa de lima to start the rest of the day.

Room Tip: Take any room available.

Wherever you stay go here for weekend brunch, or any day for breakfast, costs $16 US for the full buffet (you will never eat again). I love Merida and stayed at the Conquistador for 10 days in February. I selected it after walking from the Plaza Central to Ave Montejo looking at rooms in at least 8 other hotels. I chose it because it is a friendly Mexican hotel with good sized rooms and nice bathrooms. I had a 6th floor balcony with view of the city. Swimming pool on rooftop has spectacular view of the whole area and you can swim laps in it -- most hotel pools there too small. It's the only hotel in town with a restaurant that looks out on Ave Montejo, the most elegant part of Merida, which adds to the breakfast experience. Mattress, pillows were comfortable (which counts a lot with me), good lighting, room service was good, room was cleaned daily, wi fi was free and worked well, laptop was safe out in open, staff knew me by name and were helpful and sweet. If you speak any Spanish, they will love you to death for it (they speak English too). Having Wal-Mart a few blocks away very handy. Negotiated a 15% discount for the longer stay. I also stayed at the Hyatt for 2 nights, very nice. I personally prefer the Conquistador and being on the Avenue. Easy walk or quick cab or bus to Plaza Central. I'll go back. It's a little older but it is a nice size, not too big, not too small, solid hotel, full of Mexican tourists and families enjoying this great city, lots of European tourists as well. I enjoyed the terrific maragaritas and had dinner there twice, but tended to go elsewhere for dinner, including the little cafe across the street, to Rosas & Xocholate, the great new fusion restaurant a few blocks up, or to the many other dining places in the city center. Anthropological museum is across the street, and every Saturday night at the end of the Avenue is an outdoor fair and concert. It's a safe city to wander around in, and I say this after being there by myself walking all over even late at night.
