    good hotel


    i checked this hotel out using another website-tripadvisordotcom-which i have found fairly reliable in the past. this hotel was given a good rating, voted 2nd in Merida, ooh i hear you say, however in any language this was a good hotel.
    on arriving at 2200 instead of the 1300 i originally thought we were welcomed by a really nice receptionist-almuyena (i have undoubtedly spelled that incorrectly)-who works the evening shift most nights. i must state that my booking-done through xcapewithusdotcom-did not mention my 2 year old,Freya, who was with my wife and myself. this however did not prove a problem as soon as we said that she would sleep with us, and immediately we were offered a "large double bed" instead of the twin that was booked for us. this double proved to be the biggest bed i have ever seen and it ensured that we all slept well for the whole of our stay, something we don't manage much at home due to Freya coming into our bed in the early hours every night.
    the hotel itself was a quality venue, right on the towns main plaza, yet despite this there was no noise in the room either from outside nor from any of the adjoining rooms.
    the rooms were large and well appointed, having twin sinks and separate toilet area in the bathroom, which were well stocked with all the bathroom requirements needed.
    the room was well cleaned daily and the tip i left out for the chambermaid was left, i increased it on the day we left!
    we didn't eat dinner at the hotel but the menu looked good and the lunchtime menu seemed reasonable indeed. the breakfasts were excellent, comprising fresh fruits, serrano ham, chorizo, hams, cheeses, pastries and best of all freshly squeezed orange juice.
    the only complaint i would have of this hotel was that the afternoon reception service did not match that of the evening, especially a young dark haired woman who wore a black jacket-she seemed more interested in filing her nails than dealing with any queries we had
    i would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and would happily stay there again.

    Directions: right on the plaza espana and well signposted on entering merida.

    City Centre Luxury - 2


    I had to include this picture of the main courtyard to show a glimse of the standard of this hotel.

    The reception desk can be seen in the far corner, and the staircase behind the wall on the right leads up to corridors around the sides of the courtyard with the rooms leading off them. The bar is in the courtyard, directly underneath the corridor where I was standing.

    City Centre Luxury


    The Meliá Mérida Boutique Hotel is located within two converted palaces situated in the Paza Espana in the historical centre of the city. The hotel has only been open a few years, and the conversion from the palaces is magnificent. The first building is the Palacio de los Pacheco, which was built in 1802, and has entertained many illustrious guests including Spanish royalty in the 19th and 20th centuries. The second building, the Palacio de los Mendoza, is older, and contains a patio with 14th century porticos.

    Unique Quality: The hotel has 76 luxurious rooms, a small rooftop swimming pool and a wonderful restaurant. We didn't bother going and looking for restaurants, but ate in the hotel. The room was really comfortable, and the service was good. The only drawback was that it is difficult to park near the hotel - the drop-off point is a bit small - but the hotel has its own garage a few streets away, and they were quick to move the car.

    The hotel cost 80 euros a night for a double room - breakfast extra - worth every cent !

Merida-What a surprise

by freyas_dad

"Not Madrid"

Originally planning to stay just north of Madrid, an online weather check showed that after weeks of sun and high temperatures our stay was going to be marred by rain and thunderstorms. So after a quick look at where the Spanish sun was going to be shining i made a decision and booked a hotel in the Extremaduran town of...Merida!

"From Madrid airport.."

The jouney out of the Madrid area was not as bad as i feared and soon i was on the A5 road that goes south west through spain, and ultimately on to Lisbon.
The road itself was quiet-it was a Sunday and going South-and of a decent standard, being dual carriageway for its length. A note of caution though, i kept around the speed limit which was a wise move as there are regular Guardia Civil units catching speeding motorists. Also we passed the scene of a very serious-undoubtedly fatal-rta to which the ambulance had not yet arrived. However on the whole i felt the road safe and with adequate service stations.


On arriving at Merida our hotel was well signposted, as were some of the other higher standard establishments so an earlier fear of never finding the place was allayed.
The Melia Merida was a really good 5* hotel and a lovely constructed building, i believe it was crated from uniting 2 former hotels, whatever it was more than centrally situated right on the plaza espana.
The modern city of Merida is nothing special however its rightful fame lies all around it in its amazing Roman sights.
A good way of seeing these sights is to buy a ticket for 10 euros that will enable you to visit most of the main attractions, and over the course of a few days too.
Another must is the Roman museum, which although not on the 10 e ticket costs only around 2.50 e or so. This is an amazing museum and contains most of the original remains found in the town, and extremely well set out in what is itself a delightful building.
