    Affordable and accessible place

    by

    This hotel was recommended by other VTers, not to mention that it has a 1-star Frommer's rating. Sure, the price, room and place in general was great. The room has its own TV, safe, balcony and 2 rocking chairs. Their bathroom is a bit slippery so be careful about it. What I disliked the most is their bath towels were short, thin and worn out with some torn spots. The day receptionists were friendly and fluent in English, but the guy on the graveyard shift speaks little English but is otherwise helpful when you need to call a cab to the airport for your early-dawn flight.

    They had vending machines for sodas, coffee, water and juices. Breakfast is not included with the room, but after 2 days you wouldn't want to eat the same fare anymore, believe me. The pool is a welcome feature after all that heat and walking though it's only about 20 meters long.

    Unique Quality: The hotel's 4 blocks from the zocalo, which is not really that far but it's a bit of an ordeal when you have to walk under the sun and along busy streets with vehicular fumes choking you. Their front facade is small but when you enter, you'll be surprised by the large area of the hotel and its inner courtyards. There's free parking for guests' cars and they have their own laundromat but washing and drying cost 50 pesos or US$ 5 (at the time of writing) a pop, inclusive of detergent.

    When you book at their website, you can immediately determine if a room if available for your date and length of stay. However, they levy an 8% surcharge for credit card payments.

    Directions: From the airport, taxi drivers are familiar with the hotel so no need to have an address or map.

    Dolores Alba

    by

    We really enjoyed our stay at Dolores Alba and would highly recommend it. Rooms are extremely clean and spacious. Balconies in the older part of the hotel look over the courtyard where breakfast is served; newer rooms overlook the beautiful pool. Rooms include air conditioning, safe boxes, televisions and phones. Our room had two beds (I think most do), a table and two chairs as well.

    The hotel staff are friendly and can help set up tours to some of the Maya ruins. Breakfasts are an extra 50 pesos; for that price you get eggs, hot dog-like sausage, beans, corn flakes, yogurt, different types of bread, coffee and juice. The sunlit courtyard, with trees, plants and birds make for a pleasant eating experience. The hotel pool is clean and very nice. Our one complaint about the pool was that there weren't nearly enough lounge chairs.

    Prices in the high season are around $42 to $46 US.

    The biggest downside to Dolores Alba is its location, 4 to 5 long, crowded, smelly blocks to the main square. Other hotels, however, seem to be situated equally far. Overall a nice hotel for the price.

    Directions: 4 blocks east of the Plaza Grande

    I reserved my room using their website, and showed up late at night. The facilities and room were clean, the rooms in the older wing are more traditional, the rooms by the pool are more modern. The staff was friendly, and would answer any questions about the city. Breakfast is not included, costs 50 pesos; I skipped it.

    Directions: Within walking distance of the Plaza Grande, which is 3 blocks to the west.

    Oasis of ease and comfort

    by

    The hotel is located in the center of Merida. All sights and historical places are in walking distance.

    You can easily walk around the blocks to see the real life without any troubles. The people are ususally very friendly.

    Unique Quality: The rooms are excellent and equipped with AC as well as big windows to the inner courtyard. The hotel offers a pool, a restaurant and a huge patio. The staff is extremly friendly and very helpful. The ladies at the front desk are very talkative and eager to help you with everything.

    You can book excursions e.g. to the pyramids (like UXMAL & KABAH) around and to the flamingos at Celestun for a reasonable price and excellent guides.

A Hidden Jewel

From looking at the outside, you'd never guess how nice Dolores Alba is inside. The second courtyard is just wonderful. Great pool - family atmosphere - and the cutest little dog you've ever seen.
