Lovely colors. Back courtyard has a small pretty pool. A quality continental breakfast. When we came they gave us a free drink. I couldn't get enough pictures of the place. I Would highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: The rooms next to the pool have a nicer view.

The Hotel Medio Mundo on 55th Calle in Merida is a colorfully painted set of quiet rooms set around two courtyards, one with a small swimming pool, the other a tropical garden. The hotel used to be a large house formerly owned by an excommunicated priest and his wife and now owned by an ex-pat American couple. Service is excellent. The breakfast was fresh fruit, cheese, bread and coffee and was quite satisfying.

Room Tip: All seem to be good, but spend the extra to get air conditioning if you are easily made uncomfortabl...

What a place. Normally we wouldn't stay in Merida but when we arrived in Merida we decided to stay only one night. One night became 4 night because the wonderful stayin in Medio Mundo.
It's a perfect place to stay, not really in the center but just out so it's Always quite. But also not to far so you can do everything by foot.
The people are very deticated with there job and the hotel. Everyone, owners, kooks, "poolpeople", cleaning team, ...
The place it selves is idealistic. It's even better then it looks on the internet. That counts for the swimming pool, the rooms, bathrooms, ... Even the infrastructure around the pool is nearly perfect. It has lovely seats where you can bounce yourself a sleep.
also the kitchen is very nice. nice breakfast in the morning at the swimming pool and an abnormal romantic diner in the evening at the same pool!

GREAT

Room Tip: we had a room downstairs but i think a room upstairs is worth it.

Atmospheric hotel in old colonial-style with spacious, nicely designed rooms, extraordinary service and very friendly personnel; we loved to start our days with delicious breakfast in the green and quiet court and then either headed to the city by foot or to the various places of interest in the region by car - we would have loved to stay longer!

We had 5 nights here and loved it. This family run hotel does all the things that matter well and skips the things that don't ( TV).
It's well situated in the centro historica. The rooms are clean and spacious with comfortable beds, some with aircon and a fan. Most overlook a lovely courtyard and there is a nice pool to cool off in. There is a fresh water dispenser so that you can top up your water bottles and reduce the amount of plastic. Wifi works everywhere. The staff are great and Nicole and her husband couldn't have been more helpful with advice eg. how to sort the local bus service to get to Uxmal and all Nicole's restaurant recommendations were spot on.
Breakfast is included in the tariff and usually consists of lovely fresh fruit with yoghurt followed by a variety of nice breads and spreads and decent coffee or tea and fresh fruit juice.
They do dinner too ( vegan) tasty and more a modest price.
This place was the perfect base and really made our stay in Merida.

Nicole and Nelson are amazing hosts. Their son was also a gem and was great fun to chat with. This is a family that truly enjoy people and helping them have the best vacation ever. Nicole arranged a taxi to take us to Playa del Carmen as well as suggesting many touristy things to do in Merida. This B and B has a delightful oasis courtyard in the back where we enjoyed a wonderful healthy breakfast. Nelson was hilarious and we really enjoyed his wonderful sense of humour! Don't miss staying here, it is a magical place tucked quietly away from the business of the downtown core and a restful and peaceful environment. What we loved a great deal is not having TV's and that meant back to basics of human interactions! Thanks to your family for making such a wonderful holiday in Merida. We will be back.

We stayed here our first night in Mexico, so we had a long flight behind us followed by a domestic flight from Mexico City. The owner stayed up until 0.30 am to receive us with a smile, and we were shown right to a very cosy room. No AC, but we knew that from booking, and with open windows and the fan running we were very comfortable. It really was just what a couple of jetlagged first day tourists needed. Breakfast the next morning was also perfect, the fruit platter cannot be beaten. We were going onward the same day, and they kept our luggage for us while we had a full day of sightseeing before the bus left. Would most definitively stay here again.
