This kind of hotels are usually either closed (because too old and shabby) or five star and really expensive. But in Merida everything is different, time seems to have come to a stop in the 1960s (1960s rugs and furniture in the rooms) and in the lobby you feel propelled back to 1901 when the hotel was built: beautiful furniture, but horrible "feliz navidad"-decoration, hope they won't repeat that sin for Xmas in 2011! The rooms without windows are a little smelly, but quiet and the price is ok.
