“ALL WORKED OUT”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

This was our first visit to Merida and I searched quite awhile to find budget accommodations with good reviews that was in a historic building. So imagine our shock to arrive and be told we were being sent to another hotel because the A/C was not working. This was during the height of "Carnaval" and we saw other patrons come in off the street as we were being ushered to the other hotel (which happened to be a time share) and assumed they overbooked due to the festival and we would never set foot inside. Alas, we were very pleasantly surprised to go back the next day and be told our room was, indeed, ready for us. Whew!! We had a room with 2 double beds (more large singles than true doubles) on the 2nd floor overlooking the lovely pool.

PROS

Location, location, location! So close to the square and other areas.

Peace and quiet

Clean

Good food. We only had breakfast there, but it was really good (except for the coffee which was really weak)

Nice, helpful staff.

Cool, refreshing pool WITH towels waiting for you on the chaises.

Great price


CONS

Beds were not super comfy for sleeping

Weak coffee


Pros far outweighed any negatives and our first experience in Merida was great!! We will definitely come back when it is NOT Carnaval to experience the true Merida without all the chaos of daily parades and bleachers and barriers set up everywhere

BEST TIP: EVERY TUESDAY AT THE ENGLISH LIBRARY THEY HAVE HOUSE TOURS. THERE IS NO CHARGE AND YOU GET TO SEE 4 VARIOUS HOMES IN MERIDA WHICH IS SUCH A BONUS!!!

We did not stay at this hotel, but we ate at the restaurant. It was one of the best we were at all week. Loved the red snapper and the house wine. A very pleasant evening with friends. The service was excellent.

Just two blocks from the centre of the historical part of Merida, this colonial place is a peaceful haven. It has a nice interior garden and a small pool. The room we stayed in was in the old wing, very high ceiling with a nice bathroom. The bed was HUGE with a large cross hanging on the wall. The staff is very friendly and accomodative. We are vegetarians and they were able to cook something up for us.

Room Tip: If you like a bit of history ask for the rooms in the old wing!

This is a lovely hotel with spacious rooms, a beautiful pool area, lots of colonial charm, and a great location just a block from the main Plaza of Merida (which is a charming city with lots to do, especially on weekends. The city organizes concerts, both classical and traditional, dancing, artisan markets, great street food. Most of the museums are free.)

Staff of La Mision are extremely pleasant and helpful. The only downside....the mattresses are really hard. But we would stay there again anyway!

Very nice colonial hotel. Rooms are very clean, confotable beds, ok bathroom. Very nice interior garden with a small pool to refresh after long walks in the city.

The breakfast is ok and the service is perfect but way to expensive! 25$ for two (scramble eggs a yogurth)

Recomended for adults who are looking for a nice and quiet hotel

We loved this hotel; cliched though it sounds, it was a calm oasis just off a busy street in Merida. The receptionists were friendly and helpful and spoke great english. The hotel is set around 2 charming courtyards; one with a fountain and the reception and restaurant and the other with the rooms on 3 sides and a small swimming pool. Our room was a little dark but well equiped and very very quiet. The pool was refreshing after a few hours walking around Merida although there were only 2 sun loungers.
Good restaurants within easy walking distance (Amara, La Chaya de Maya, La Casa de Frieda) and the main square which closes to traffic at night and seems to have daily entertainment is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
The only downside is that the road where the hotel is situated is dark and a bit seedy. Also there were very few other guests when we visited so maybe in high season the pool area could be a little crowded.

I really liked this little hotel. It had real charm, and was pretty and peaceful. The first room we were shown was a little on the dark side, but we asked if we could move and they happily obliged us. The room we were then given was light, bright and airy. The pool area was very pretty. Breakfast was very nice, and served by a very nice older gentleman! The hotel is a former monastery thus giving the place so much character. The location is also very good, not much of a walk to get in to the main part of town. This is a great little place to stay.
