I stayed at El Gran Hotel for one week in July 2007. I loved this hotel for its location and its turn-of-the-century building and decor.
The hotel is perfectly located less than a block from the main zocalo in the historic center of Merida. If you have a car, there is no parking at the hotel but there are several pay lots a block or two away.
The hotel is in a beautiful 1900 building and is decorated with turn of the century furniture and antiques. Our room was quite large with two large wooden French doors opening up to two separate balconies. The room had one king bed, high ceilings, nice woodwork, beautiful old tile floors, and was furnished with antiques. The bathroom was small and functional with the sink/mirror area outside of the bathroom.
The hotel was clean and well cared for and the staff were friendly.
The only negative I can think of is that in the extreme July heat the air conditioner in our room wasn't powerful enough to cool the room as much as I'd have liked, probably due to the very high ceilings.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again the next time I am in Merida.
