The Hotel Julamis is an old house which has been restored as a small hotel and has the atmosphere of a pleasant and comfortable B&B. The en-suite rooms are attractive and well-appointed. Those upstairs have the advantage of giving out on a balcony overlooking the patio, and there is a secluded lounge area just around the corner. A generous continental breakfast is served in the pretty patio on the ground floor.
I want to add my review to the accolades. The Julamis was "home" to me and nine other people in my group during the first week of March, 2010. It is located in a convenient location, being about seven blocks to Mérida's main plaza and 4 blocks to the entrance of the Paseo de Montejo.
What really makes the Julamis stand out is the exemplary fusion of talents of the two owners, Erid and Mel. Erid is the man behind the scenes, and his competence is reflected in the smooth operation of the hotel. Mel is the man you will see more often. Not only was he a gracious, informative, and helpful host when we were there, but he was invaluable to me when I was planning this trip. He knows Mérida well and through him I learned a number of things in advance which made our trip easier and more enjoyable. Mel is an accessible, friendly, genuinely helpful host, a master of the craft.
As the owner of a bed & breakfast inn for 23 years, I know how important it is for guests to receive not only accurate information on the area they are to visit, but to find, when they arrive, that their choice of lodging meets their expectations. Erid and Mel have combined their considerable talents to achieve this goal.
