I needed a hotel room in Mérida over New Year's Eve on short notice and found Casa Nobel...I'm very glad I did. For a simple guest house this was a lovely hotel. The facilities were both very clean and very well-maintained - nothing felt worn or run down, and the outdoor area with bright flowers was a cheerful place to have a morning coffee. There were even free parking spots available for my rental car.
The family and staff who manage the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. One night when I came in they asked me to stop a moment - when my dubious Spanish caught up with the conversation, it turned out that they were very concerned about a nearby barking dog keeping me awake, and wanted me to know that they had earplugs if I needed them. I did not (the dog was not loud) but the gesture was thoughtful and appreciated. I've heard many a barking dog at night in Mexico, but never encountered a hotel staff that went out of their way to deal with it! And as for the Spanish, the hotel's proprietor speaks English and French as well.More
