Step back in time at this new 14-room gem, which showcases the Spanish and French colonial-era style for which Merida is renowned. From the brightly colored hand-painted traditional tiles to the 20-foot beam ceilings, this mansion turned hotel gets all the period details just right. The spacious rooms feature sparkling chandeliers, carved mahogany doors and French colonial touches such as ornate plaster scrollwork and hand-painted trompe-l’oeil wall designs. There’s a small gym, pool and spa, but the restaurants are the real highlights, offering a range of experiences from tapas at the bar, with its strikingly colorful murals, to International mixed with traditional Yucatecan fare at the more restaurant, to cocktails and people watching beneath almond trees on the terrace facing Hidalgo Park.
In the Area
Start at Merida’s main square, variously called the Zocalo (after Mexico City’s famous square) or the Plaza Grande, and check out the historic sights with which it’s lined, from the 16th-century cathedral (the second-oldest in the Americas) to Museo Casa Montejo, which was once the home of Spanish conqueror Francisco Montejo. Don’t miss the modern art museum MACAY, situated just off the square, which showcases a more contemporary side of this ancient city. Sample Merida’s best home-cooked Yucatecan food at La Chaya Maya, a buzzy restaurant with two downtown locations (the newest in a lovely mansion) where you can dine on such regional specialties as chichinita pibil (a roasted pork dish) or salbutes (fried tortillas heaped with turkey, pickled onions and avocado). Nearby, see what’s cooking at Apoala, an upscale joint on Santa Lucia Square that serves mostly Oaxacan-inspired dishes to well-heeled Meridanos. Shop for beautiful artisanal clothing and accessories plus hand-crafted candles and fragrances made in nearby Valladolid at Coqui Coqui, a chic boutique that wouldn’t be out of place in New York or Paris.
How to Get There
Hotel Mansion Merida is a lovely place to stay - the staff is warm, friendly and very helpful. The property is impeccably maintained. I cannot think of anything I would change. It has become my
Maybe you are royalty, or not, just like me. See for yourself how it feels to have your palace "on the park". Sounds like Mayfair/Hyde Park, London. Well, it is, and much better, because the sun is real here. Enjoy the premises, the lovely patio, the excellent restaurant and the top location. And leave a tip, because the personnel is outstanding.
We stayed in a junior suite of hotel on my birthday night. Ofcourse it would have been sweet if staff would have noticed it and left some small gift, but I understand that it is not mandatory and I still enjoyed my stay. The rooms are very nicely decorated, so is the rest of hotel, I completely adore this style, it brings you to another epoch, It’s just gorgeous. The only disadvantage is that we had to swing 3 circles around before stopping to give our car for valet parking, as there were some food distributors trucks out there and the police was whistling for us to not stand, if you’re planning on coming with a car - you should call hotel ~ 30 minutes in advance so they would make sure there is space for stopping as it’s basically only 1 car fitting and streets are very narrow.
The hotel is crazily beautiful, like living in a museum, gives a taste of Spain too, as it’s a diamond of heritage and beautiful architecture, design.
Great rooms, beautiful place, and excellent service! The location is very convenient! Thanks to all the staff, especially to Mario for making are stay fabulous! The included Mexican breakfast was amazing, especially the tamales! The whole family loved the location, close to the Zocalo! The pool was refreshing in the hot weather and we cant wait to come back.
After all fun and excitement in Mexico City we took a plane to Merida to start the exploration of Yucatan and Quintana Roo in Mayaland. After seeing the options in Merida for our stay we chose Mansion Merida on the Park in the Historico Centro. It was a perfect choice and perfect location.
