There are not a lot of options of upper-class four or five-star hotels within walking distance to the historic downtown central area of Merida. This is a perfect option.
The rooms are small, but clean. The bathrooms could use an update along with the curtains and desk but, again, if you plan on spending days exploring Merida, Chichen Itza and the surrounding areas and just want a sufficient place to lay your head, you could do a lot worse (especially for the price. We paid $45 US and that was a bargain.)
There's a decent flat screen in each room. And the hotel has free WiFi along with a small business center with two computers. Perfect for checking email. There's a safe in every room, which is nice. The pool is small, but refreshing. The tiny breakfast buffet - at $5 US - is a decent way to fill up and start the day.
More importantly, you can drink at the bars around the historic churches about 4 blocks away and stumble home. We always felt safe and the staff was warm and helpful.
