This downtown option is the most unique and stylish joint in Mérida. Artistic touches abound. Intricate wood and metal work ranges from random sculptures, spread around the rambling colonial-era building, to the entrance door, which is a work of art in itself. Rooms vary in size, but all are clean, inviting, and well kept, with firm beds, plush down comforters and tasteful decor. Most have high ceilings. My favorite rooms are the second-floor units with small balconies overlooking the central courtyard. Guests enjoy free Internet access. Those with a laptop can connect to the Internet via Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi from any room; the rest must share the hotel's communal desktop. Service is attentive and friendly. The hotel has no formal restaurant, although breakfast is served daily, as well as light snacks and drinks throughout the day.
