Good hotel close to airport and historic plazaPosted Apr 14, 2014
Wanted to stay closer to airport on our last night, to catch an early departure. This hotel is in a nice section of the city, and is still only 9 blocks to the historic plaza ( about a 20-25 min pleasant walk). Is next door to big grocery store to get those last minute souvenirs too. Hotel is antique and quiet, big rooms with good air conditioning. Small pool in a nice courtyard.Would stay here again.

Pros: Size of room, layout of hotel itself.
Location: Didn't have the opportunity to explore nearby
Unfortunately, just a quick overnight stay due to early morning flight BUT would love to have stayed longer to explore the hotel. Room was a large with high ceilings, fan, air conditioner plus good-size bathroom with nice shower. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Swimming pool in middle of open courtyard looked very inviting. Will definitely return.

Familiar location and servicePosted Oct 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
We've stayed here for the past 3 years as we head out to the airport the next morning. Considering we have to leave at 5AM we never missed a flight and the hotel personnel makes sure we get a taxi, or the owner drives us to the airport on occasion. Being on Calle 59, it is about 1Km walking distance to Centro and 30 pesos cab ride back.

Depends what you are looking forPosted Aug 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Depends what you are looking for , def its not a resort, just a hotel. Good if you are exploring Merida and use room only to sleep, not to spend the day @ hotel, Great service, clean, well maintained, nice people, comfortable,good price, high ceilings, historic building, no windows on some rooms, very small pool. And again good if you are in Merida to explore, not good if your planning to hang out at the hotel. A short drive to city's center.

Beautiful Hotel in good location but bad service!Posted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: It was a nice old building and the rooms were clean
Cons: Necessary to improve the breakfast, it is terrible!!!
Location: You had to walk for about 20 minutes to the center but it is in one of the nicest areas in Merida!
If you want to stay in a beautiful and clean room and expect nothing else from the hotel, then this is a good choice. We saw nearly nobody during our stay there, the breakfast was the poorest we ever hat in a hotel (melon, sweet rolls and bad coffee...) and the staff wasn't really caring about helping the clients with anything...

Very nice hotelPosted Apr 8, 2013
Great hotel and very nice service. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. Beds aren't the most comfortable.

Not only is the Casa De Las Columnas located in a stategic area but it is lovely to boot. My wife and daughter and I spent some time in Merida recently and loved our time at Casa De Las Columnas. Our rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated, the common area has a pool and comfortable visiting areas, and the location was perfect for exploring both the historic area and going to the outlying areas around Merida. The workers there were all pleasant and helpful. Did I mention what a bargain it was???

Amazing Place! Sun Kissed Courtyard & Secret GardePosted Jan 16, 2013
Pros: The setting, ambiance, architecture, cleanliness, peaceful
Cons: A rooster lives somewhere nearby. Not all staff understood English
Location: As I said above away from the Plaza Grande but easy to get to walking or taxi
I liked it so much I stayed an extra day. Absolutely romantic and delightful. The chaos of the busy streets outside sequestered away by these adobe walls, yields a sun kissed courtyard and secret garden surrounded by private rooms filled with antiques. All at an amazing price. This Casa is well away from the busy Grande Plaza it is about 10 blocks or a brisk 25 minute walk, which I enjoyed doing a couple of times a day. If not take a taxi and enjoy this little hideaway. Breakfast was basic coffee, bread, fruit and cornflakes but that's all I needed. English was sparse with some staff but my needs were taken care of. I have been travelling in Peru and Mexico, this Casa has real HOT water and good wifi. I also stayed at Hotel Reforma which is VeRy rustic and noisy by comparison. Pay $5 more per night and stay at Casa de Los Columnas.

Quiet HotelPosted Nov 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
A small family run hotel in a converted school. We've stayed here 6-7 times in the past 2 years. Less than one mile walk to cathedrals and main square.
