    The two male staff that were at reception (on arrival and departure) were very friendly. There is no parking at the hostal but the hostal has two parking places nearby which are reasonably priced.

    The hostal, although reasonably clean, is very basic. Unfortunately the bedroom accommodation was really only acceptable. The rooms could do with some basic renovation. The plug in the bathroom came out of it's socket when we tried to use it, and the plugs in the bedroom are in a ridiculous place, behind the bed. The paint needs a touch-up and the mould in the bathroom could be addressed. The shower was a nightmare to work. The knobs came out of place and twisted in all directions causing us to get saturated by the powerful and hot water, nearly scalding us. It took about 10 minutes to finally work it correctly. The rooms are badly insulated causing us to wake up several times during the night hearing people walk about above. Also the rooms were cold, adding to the discomfort. And the beds could do with being renewed. The wi-fi reception is also terrible in the room constantly losing it's signal. The furniture could be updated. It'd be nice to have tea-making facilities like they do in places in Ireland.

    A very central location, very helpful staff, small but comfortable room. Overall an excellent place to stay for a few nights if visiting Merida.

    Other clients can be heard coming and going at night if they are a bit noisy .

    Helpful staff, quaint décor - lovely prints on the walls of S American ladies and a hand painted basin in the bathroom, round the corner from the main Roman site. Our room overlooked the street, but it was really quiet - but it was early in the year. We stayed on our way south and liked it so much we booked again on the way back.

    No street parking nearby but the hotel will arrange parking for a small fee. Alternatively, if you go up to Roman theatre and amphitheatre you will find parking on the perimeter of that site, which isn't a long walk from the hotel.

    Basic but I liked the fact that it is part of the old town and just round the corner from the temple of Diana.

    Spanish mattresses all seem to be uncomfortable.

    Best possible location. Good room, quiet and clean. The host at reception was very nice and helpful. We could even get a private indoor parking nearby for our rental car.

    Bad smell from the drain in the bathroom that fortunately did not reach the bedroom once the door closed.

    It was a perfect place to discover beautiful Merida. It's near to historic monuments, to restaurants, shops, etc. The staff in incredibly kind. Rooms are beautifully decorated, with it's own bathroom. It is very clean and a very good deal. I would recommend it to people who wants to visit Merida.

    Great price, close to old town, bed comfy, staff helpful. We thought we'd booked a quadruple room but ended up with twin adjoining rooms which was fantastic. Nice internal courtyard in common area. Secure parking 8 euro / day.

    Shower temperature very hard to regulate. Private parking area was very hard to get to due to narrow one way streets, ended up driving wrong way down the street to get there - scary!

    I lucked out in finding this place. Clean, tastefully furnished, the MOST comfortable bed & pillows, friendly staff, great location. Highly recommended!

    My room happened to be on the street side so it was a bit noisy but there are other non-street side rooms. I did get to love the nightly Spanish ruckus on the street and to appreciate it's uniqueness. Spain at night-what a delight!

    The location is great! The staff at the front desk were very good at check in and out and they gave us very good recommendations for dining and coffee options.

    There was an awful sewer smell in the bathroom in our room that was overwhelming at times, even though they had the window open. Also the shower stall seal needed to be replaced. The shower took a bit of time to figure out - don't bother with the massage jets as they don't work properly. We were there only one night but it was the most expensive place we stayed in and not worth the 46 € paid.

    A lovely little hotel in the heart of Merida.Once the car was parked, a couple of hundred metres away, then everything is accessible. Just down the road from the ampitheatre and the "tren turistico" Take the road train (a bit cheesy I know) for a fact finding locator of all the Roman monuments. Hotel was very good value for money.
