Gran Hotel de Merida
Ranked #30 of 105 Hotels in Merida
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 November 2004

Was lucky to find The Gran Hotel in Merida. Built in 1901, but renovated not too many years ago, so it remains in remarkably good shape & is a wonderful colonial & architectural jewel. A double room was $55 US & well worth it. The location in the downtown historical center facing a lovely small plaza, with several good restaurants in the the immediate area. There are some worn edges -- this is Mexico remember & this is an old building -- but with ambience like this you will feel like you stepped back in time. This is truly why you go to Merida.

While studying abroad in Merida, my boyfriend and I got the master suite for my birthday and it was incredible! Only 85 dollars! The room was huge, complete with a giant jacuzzi and robes hanging nearby. The staff was wonderful and the location is right in the middle of centro. The hotel itself is absolutely stunning--very elegant. If you stay in Merida, I recommend staying here, rather than the Americanized Fiesta Americana.

I call the Gran "the sexiest hotel in Mexico", after having just returned from my third trip in 14 years to the Yucatan peninsula.El Gran is located in the heart of Merida on a small plaza one block from the city's main plaza, next to the oldest cathedral in the america's, and the fabulous Governor's palace.Built in 1901 the hacienda style hotel with its marvelous grandeur gushes with the style, elegance and grace of its era...at a price that is usually reserved for hotels far below its quality.El Gran is 5 minutes from most places you wish to visit and/or shop, and is situated within the cultural centre of the city, an area blocked off for a street festival every weekend.The hotel has plaza or street views with balconies, as well as quieter rooms without exterior walls. With free purified drinking water and ice, a subtle yet enforced security policy, a premier location, exquisitly preserved architecture, and english speaking front desk staff...you can't miss with this one. El Gran Hotel will, in itself, be one of your favorite memories of your trip to Merida. Enjoy!

El Gran Hotel is a beautifully maintained hotel ..about 100 yrs old. We slept in the same bed Fidel Castro slept in once!! Clean, comfortable.
Not 'posh & fluffy' but a nice experience and decorated with beautiful antiques. The hotel has a plaza infront that always seems to have something going on. There are shops, great restaurants and carriage rides all within walking distance. Staff is helpful and curtious.
