I stayed in this cute hotel, during a 3 week trip around Cancun, Playa, Tulum, Vaidollid, and Merida. I have to say this hotel was the cheapest but my favorite hotel to stay at during my journey through the Yucatan.
What I loved...The art.....It is an amazing place with art everywhere...It is an old mansion that was left as a cultural historical building which is not allowed to be tampered with, so the flaking paint is a testament to that as is the old mosaic tiling and artwork that stands to both haunt and inspire.
It is a bit like a labyrinth of sorts..When you enter, you walk through an window to window corridor wall to wall with amazing artwork...There is an upstairs and downstairs, all which lead to a room from this old mansion that leads you to ask yourself what could have been inspired in this very center. I rented a room with a king bed, air conditioner, and private bathroom...
It is 70s style and has the feeling of an old mansion that has a story to tell that you would never imagine in your wildest dreams..
Merida is a very hot hot place from what I hear. I travelled in March and it was hot but not as hot as I hear it can be in June...So the fact that this hotel has one of the biggest pools in Merida, drew locals and tourists to dip their feet in the cool waters.....
I paid only 50 usd per night and had the best stay with breakfast included.....Toast and coffee!!!!
You must check out Merida for the art....I was blessed to have stumbled upon an amazing artist, supposedly from Tulum...who has his art exibited in Galleria Merida....Carlos Maria Lafuente.......Amazing, Breathtaking, and the gallery, another mansion reconstructed!!!!
Merida is a must and this hotel!!! AMAZING
