Filthy, falling in pieces, horrible breakfast, no hot water (even after reported), dirty bed sheets, broken doors...completely a disaster. It doesn't deserve one star. I just hope that my wife and I won't get any disease after staying there. Dreadful! Sucio, cayéndose a pedazos, desayuno horrible, no hay agua caliente, sábanas sucias, baño tapado, puertas comidas por las polillas,un desastre...

The hotel is close to the center of Merida next to the buses terminal ADO. I went there with my friends two nights and it was enough. The place is not pretty. It is clean and the personal if friendly, the breakfast is good but the administration is very bad. We have had a lot of problems there. The shower...

This hotel is right down the street from two bus terminals. It was awfully nice to get off my bus and just walk across the street. The next morning at 5:00 am I was able to walk out the door and flag a passing cab to the airport in 30 seconds. That said, this hotel is overpriced for what you...

Had to stay in the El Espanol hotel in Merida. It was across the street from the Bus Station, right on the corner of a busy street ( traffic light outside) with traffic most of the time. Noise, noise, noise. The hotel was 'tourist class' with friendly staff who didn't speak English. I was lucky my room had a window...

My room was small, clean and on the corner of a busy intersection. However, it was high enought that the noise wasn't too bad. The front staff was very, very helpful with all my needs. I would recommend this hotel if you want easy access to the 2 bus stations which are across the street.
