Not worth the extra money. "Hot" water is unreliable at best, bathroom was not clean and staff were unpleasant. If you insist on going here, be sure to count with them when you pay as I've now heard from 2 other travellers they are pulling the "you didn't count it correctly and still owe us" scam. At first they told me there were no rooms available then suddenly changed their minds when my friend told them I'm from Canada. Woke me up???scrubbing the walls of adjoining room at 7am...even though I was nearly the only one in the place and easily could have waited til later. Keep walking- you're only a block and a half away from posada Suiza!!

We arrived in the pouring rain and were shown to our room which was just across the courtyard and very comfortable. The best shower yet in this country with lots of hot water and the bed was really comfortable. Breakfast was a bit slow and we had some language difficulties but when we finally ordered it was delicious and plentiful. There is tea and coffee freely available all day. The hotel does not do dinner but there are plenty of places nearby to eat. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. We were back in the same hotel two days later and the staff remembered us and our breakfast which was just as good and delicious.

I visited Merida as part of 2week trip to Venezuela and I stayed at the posada Casa Sol. The posada was just magnificent. The patios were so beautiful decorated and the rooms were spacious and cleans. The breakfast at the hotel was a unique experience. You could order from different breakfasts (criollo, panquecas etc) and also add some extras at a very low price. The staff so excellent, very polite and very helpful with everything. They can also give you tips on what to do or where to go by night. I would definitely recommended!!!

This is not a 5 star hotel, nor does it set out to be. It is what it is, an excellent B&B. Owned and run personally by a German lady.

We had a garden room at the back of the building that we were quite happy with. Some of the rooms do not have windows (ours did), so if that is an issue, then you need to specify a window when booking.

The rooms are not big, nor overly luxurious, but they do have things like hot water (somewhat of a rarity in Venezuela). There is a ceiling fan, which takes a bit of sorting to turn on and off.

There are paintings and some quirky sculptures scattered round the place. These add to the relaxed charm of the posada.

There is wifi, but you have to be quite close to the reception desk to pick it up. And there is a free to use computer in the reception area too.

We were with 4 other (i.e. a group of 6) and were dropped off and picked up, so I cannot comment on either the position or the safety of the surrounding streets. Remember it is a B&B , so you cannot get an evening meal

It is one of those places that is distinctive and memorable, so you will be able to look back on your stay here, when other hotels have faded from memory

I recommend it.
