We just returned from a historical and cultural exploration of Chiapas and Yucatan. This beautifully restored colonial hotel is a treasure. The genuine hospitality, service and friendliness combined with the decor, the gardens and breakfast made our stay exceptional. We want to go back!

We chuckled at a previous comment about the friendly men around the main square. We had a similar experience. We were able to barter for reasonable prices close to what we had paid in the market in San Cristobal.

Room Tip: We were concerned about not being able to get an air conditioned room but were very comfortable with the fan and the excellent air circulation.

This is the sort of place we love. When my wife and I travel, we look for places that are centrally located, safe, clean and fairly priced. That's the least we'll accept. When we find something that fits that that is also "special", we're very pleased. Medio Mundo is special. For one thing it's beautiful. They got that "hacienda courtyard" look exactly right. Our rooms were large, comfortable and lovely. Breakfast was simple but delicious and served in a wonderful garden/pool area. The staff was great. The owner was knowledgeable, friendly and funny.
The location was good - about six blocks from the main square.
One sure sign a place is good is that there is only one negative review here - AND it's from 2007 - AND it sounds like it was written by someone who would have been happier in a Holiday Inn. Nothing wrong with Holiday Inn, but a Holiday Inn this is not. This is a Mexican inn. Lovingly run and cared for. We loved it. LOVED it.
No tv. No phone. Small pool (for cooling off more than swimming). There's even a roof top lounge chair area if you want to work on your tan. I don't know if we'll ever get back to Merida, but if we do, I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.
By the way, there were six of us (three rooms) for three nights. Our ages run from 14 to 65 and we ALL thought the place was great (even the 14 year old).
One thing we like about Mexico is that you'll be walking along those narrow sidewalks, you'll find a place on a nondescript street, you open the door and go inside, and then it's "Wow". That's Medio Mundo.

This hotel was great, and the staff are exceptional. The rooms are very tastefully decorated in a renovated colonial mansion with lots of character. The courtyard is gorgeous and the backyard is a great place to relax. Breakfast of fresh fruit and artisan breads and cheeses was delicious (though a little repetitive over a longer stay). Highly recommended!

This is my first review on trip advisor after using the service for years. My family and I found Hotel Medio Mundo to be one of the nicest places we have stayed anywhere. It's not a fancy luxury hotel but is a beautiful small hotel with rooms surrounding a tranquil garden courtyard with a fountain. The staff was excellent - one of the friendliest and most helpful staffs we have experienced in any of the accommodations in which we have stayed anywhere. The owner is also very friendly and fun to talk to. The rooms are large, simple, and tasteful, painted in beautiful colors with no awful hotel art, and the bathrooms and showers are huge. The beds are comfortable with very handsome Guatemalan bedspreads. A delicious breakfast of fresh squeezed juice, coffe/tea, big bowls of fresh fruit and yogurt and breads is served in a quiet and beautiful courtyard with a small swimming pool. There is also a small roof terrace on the second floor. We opted for a room without air conditioning (somethat cheaper) and in December/January this was fine with the ceiling fan - you might want air in the summer. We were on the first floor - the rooms on the second floor seemed like they might be a little brighter and airier but we weren't inside one. We also rented one of the parking spaces a couple of blocks from the hotel and that was very convenient. The location is excellent - on a quiet block just a few minutes walk from the main square. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

*A couple of tips about avoiding getting ripped off in Merida - we (American family of four - obviously tourists, first time in Mexico) were approached a number of times on streets near the main square by very friendly men who would ask us where we were from, welcome us to Merida, tell us a little about the city, engage in small talk, and then casually recommend a place to shop or eat. At first we were charmed by the friendly welcome but quickly realized, after visiting one of the recommended shops, that they were working with the businesses to lure in customers. They would typically say the shop had authentic Yucatan-made items and was closing in an hour or two for the next few days. The one recommended shop we went to, Yakun Maya on Calle 62 just north of the main square, did indeed have great hammocks, Panama hats, etc. but they tried to charge us a fortune for them, way more than we would pay for comparable items at any other place (the story about the shop closing was false - the shop stayed open the rest of the five days we were there - no doubt said in hopes to make us quick to buy something).
They also told us the hammocks were very special because they were made of sisal, claiming it was better than cotton or nylon, could be kept outside indefinitely, had pest-repelling properties, etc. We were told this same story by almost every shop or street vendor who sold hammocks and it is a complete lie - when I researched "sisal" hammocks I found out that it is for some reason a common fraudulent claim - Yucatan hammocks are only made of cotton or nylon, and if for some reason a hammock were made of sisal (highly unlikely) it would be very rough/scratchy.

Otherwise we had a wonderful time during our five days in Merida!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor - the rooms on the second floor seemed like they might be a little brighter and airier but we weren't inside one.

Three years ago we stayed at Hotel Julamis and concluded that it fully deserved its #1 rating in Merida. This year we wanted to go back but they were fully booked. With some trepidation we decided on Hotel Medio Mundo. Our fears were unfounded and it is now our joint #1. It is perhaps $10 per night more expensive but well worth it. The room we had was larger and better appointed than at Julamis. The courtyard and gardens were more extensive. Medio Mundo is closer to the main square, but further from the Paseo. The breakfast was every bit as good as at the Julamis, and Nelson the host provided early day entertainment and advice. You would not be disappointed with either hotel
