Arrived at 2am. Friendly night porter. One room smelt of smoke and the other had a loose headboard. Rather tired decor. Left too early next morning for breakfast. Parking very convenient next door for a small fee. Some off street parking available directly in front of hotel.
This is a 3 star hotel at best. Beds aren’t up to standard (cheap and hard) the shower is a joke (no height adjustment plus difficult to get the correct water out put. The bidet is almost impossible to use for anyone above 5’4”. The pool / bar area are very nice.
The sound insulation is non-existant. In my room on the second floor icould hear conversations in the bar on the ground flooras i treid to sleep. I could hear the TV in hte next room and when those people sued the toilet or had a shower. The canopies outside my window roared in the wind, and doors which do not haveself-closers banged through the night, waking me up. People had loud conversations outside my door at 1am, and some took their suitcases to the lift at 5 in the morning. For six nights I survived on 3 or 4 hours sleep a night' I also had concerns about the fire escape in an emergency as teh hotel has no internal fire barriers or protected route to the fire escapes. The low light levels on the stairs were dangerous and I had to use a torch to avoid stumbling i nthe gloom. The evening mels we had were insufficient for our needs and we had to supplement them with food from elsewhere. The fridge in the room was crammed with unhealthy foods high in sugar and fat and i had to remove them to get my own stuff in. I would never consume such products as they are unhealthy.…
This hotel is located slightly to the West of the Old Town, within walking distance of all the sites. It was an OK place, but you can tell it is not recent and needs a bit of renovations. Easy parking. Good breakfast. WiFi in the rooms. Large room. Soundproofing is pretty bad.
3 nights at the Velada, and whilst the communal areas are very well maintained and modern, the bedrooms do leave a lot to be desired - very old fashioned and dated. Despite being a non smoking room, there was a smell of stale cigarette smoke throughout. Didn’t get to use the pool as it was closed for refurb on the first day, then the weather wasn’t too good. That said, all the staff were friendly and helpful .. ample car parking at 8€ per day
Just read some of the reviews moaning about the location. The human race is in trouble if people think a 10 minute walk to one of the best historical sites in the world is too far. We thought the location ideal. Loads of restaurants in walking distance - although trying to guess opening times was a pain. Hotel good points - bed, wifi air con, LOCATION, quietness, breakfast, pool Hotel bad points - room too small, the restaurant. We had driven for over 5 hours so ate inside. The worst meal in Spain for us - although v cheap.
This hotel is loud and is filled with tour groups. There was next to no character. The staff seemed overwhelmed with the groups and didn't make any effort to help individual guests. The beds were hard and uncomfortable and the location is far outside the city. I would choose a hotel in the downtown next time.
Large hotel easy to find on the outskirts of Merida but within 15 minutes walk from the town. We used this place for its location being able to leave the car on the car park (chargeable) or park in the street for free outside the car park. Good clean rooms with all the amenities you want.
Stayed here as part of a Spanish tour. It’s a good 10-15 fifteen walk to the museum, and half an hour across town to the Roman Bridge. Our bedroom was comfortable but the decor was old fashioned, good air con, free wifi, reasonable bathroom, hair dryer and products. The breakfast, in a big soulless dining room, was average with a selection of savoury and sweet. However there is a nice little cafe in the foyer if you fancy a good coffee. The staff did their best.
The main advantage of this hotel is the price and location outside of the historical center but still close enough to walk there. We parked nearby without problems. Wifi works and the triple room was ok. Paid extra for breakfast (around 15 euros for 1 adult and 1 child) and still had time for a refreshing swim before heading to the ruins.
