Having travelled over many years to nearly 50% of the countries in the world, I have never experienced a host as good as Alex, he is what makes this place special. His desire to make your stay memorable is clear, his knowledge of the area is most useful and he delivers his breakfasts will skill and great imagination, we looked forward to each morning. The rooms are good and clean , the location allows you walk to every place of interest, I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Merida.

Room Tip: We chose Ramon which was fine, at the back so no road noise, for a longer stay we might choose a larger room.

My stay at Hotel Julamis was one of the most rewarding times I have had. The Hotel is quaint and convenient for walking into the historic district of Merida. Alex, as usual, goes above and beyond the normal owner, chef label. If you are expecting bacon and eggs for breakfast stay someplace else. His presentation and flavors are unique. The ambiance of the hotel is quiet and warm. Rooms take you back to the 20's. Pictures do not do it justice.

I don't know what else I can add to the past several reviews, all are true. Alex has many years in the hospitality industry and it shows from the extra touches like nightly happy hour on the third floor terrace where you have the opportunity to meet fellow travelers from their 20s to 70s and beyond to the complimentary bottles of water/beer/soda refilled daily, the amazing breakfast, and complimentary use of internet on a laptop located in the lobby.

Julamis is well located for all activities and Alex will help ensure you have positive experiences during your stay.

(Thank you again Alex for driving us in the rain to meet a friend for dinner when taxis were in short supply and all the other "fixes" you took care of during our stay. Our regards as well to all our new friends met at Julamis!)

Room Tip: Ixil was great for friends sharing - huge room with two beds and large bathroom with extended vanity.

It is often difficult to live up to rave reviews, but this place does just that. There are new owners, and Alex (and Mary) are attentive to every detail of your stay. The rooms are immaculate and comfortable, and the frig stocked with water, soft drinks, and beer every day was an unexpected luxury. Alex is a trained Swiss chef, and delights in serving gourmet breakfasts...different every day. He makes his own croissants, and you've never tasted a more delicious version. The croissants and sweet breads are accompanied with fresh fruits (often blueberries, raspberries and strawberries!), juice and delicious brewed organic coffee, served in the patio of hanging vines and flowers and a floor of hand-painted tiles a hundred or more years old. The second course is an egg dish or similar. One day we had omlettes with Alex's homemade sausages. Another day we had Duck filled crepes and, on a third day, his version of Mexican Moussaka . We kept getting surprised by his creative morning delights. Every evening Alex serves a variety of Tequilas on the uppermost rooftop deck where you can meet the many interesting guests, watch the sunset and hear the squawking parrots settle down in the nearby trees. At night, the hallways are lighted with sparkling candles and lamps....all very romantic. Alex is on hand all the time to book tours, answer questions, direct you to his, and then your, favorite restaurants, mark up maps on how to get in/out of Merida without too much traffic, or find your favorite team football or soccer game on the TV. It is hard to imagine a more perfect location...close enough to the center (about 5 blocks over safe streets), but far enough to not hear loud traffic or music from nearby bars. The location is a bit hard to find, but GoogleMaps got us there without any wrong turns. Parking is safe, on the street, and usually not too difficult to find. You will want to leave the car and walk to all the museums and restaurants, because the streets are narrow and busy in the tourist areas. This is a delightful lodging choice, a good value, in a fascinating historical city, and any room would be a winner. It books up far in advance, so think ahead a few months.

Room Tip: We only saw Kabah, but it was quite special.

We recently stayed a total of five nights (Jan 26-Feb1)and everything was perfect from start to finish. Alex, the owner goes above and beyond to make sure that everyone is well taken care of. We started each day with the included breakfast served in the downstairs courtyard. Alex was knowledgeable and very helpful in answering all of our questions, helping with arrangements, or just suggesting great places to eat.
The hotel building is 225 years old and has be decorated in a way that maintains the old atmosphere, but still offers the conveniences we like. Our room was kept spotless by his staff and a complimentary in room fridge was restocked daily. The location was an easy walk to the Centro Tourist areas and every thing else we wanted to see. We will be staying here again when we next visit Merida.
