Quaint hotel in a convenient locationPosted Jul 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great location and very quaint hotel, not luxury at all though. Loved the staff at the restaurant and the front desk upgraded us to a king room for free. Big complaint was with the overnight security guard...he fell asleep on the job and we were locked out one night. We banged on the doors until a guest woke up to assist us in getting in. We complained to the front desk the following morning and they were sympathetic. The following evening the doors were not locked, however there was a homeless woman with her baby sleeping on the bench in the courtyard right outside our room. Going from one end of the spectrum to the other was not welcome. Overall the value of the hotel was good and I loved the antique style hotel versus the big chains.

Excellent choicePosted May 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
Location is excellent - 1 blk from town square, which is the center of activity for Merida. Pool was nice to cool off.

not worth the pricePosted Apr 22, 2013
Pros: the garden does look nice
Cons: noise,claustrophobic feel of the rooms
There were 3 different options on line when choosing rooms.Basic ,Upper level(which I have chosen) and a "Suite"! To My surprise,The Upper Level Room that I got Was the first one next to the street,and we all know how horrible the traffic in the downtown Merida is.Not only That,it Was the first one next to the Hotel restaurant,where You have constant noise. The room has absolutely not a Single Window,just a small Screen on the Door that can be opened,but since this room is located next to the restaurant,that really does not work. At 1am in the morning my husband and I were woken up by a noise, from, I would Guess Hotel workers,taking some pool things up and down. Not to mention,that there are stains on the bathroom doors from i would Guess since the Hotel was opened and ABSOLUTELY not a Drop of Hot Water.So much for the 85usd Hotel. Not worth the price AT ALL!

Good choicePosted Mar 22, 2013
Cons: Valet parking
The hotel is located at the center of Merida, just one block away from the main square. The room is clean and spacious but the AC is quite loud. The staff can speak English and knows much about Merida. I don't like the valet parking, which is a block away from the hotel. Every time you pick up your car, you have to tell the staff to open the gate for you.

Old World AtmospherePosted Mar 9, 2013
We enjoyed the old world feel and beauty of La Mision de Fray Diego during our 5 night stay. Each day our room was cleaned well, especially the bathroom. The bed was firm (which I like) and comfortable. We were happy to be provided with a safe in our room.The day time staff was very helpful and spoke English well, but we had some trouble communicating with the staff that worked in the late evening and in the very early morning as our Spanish was very limited. Also our room was near the desk and one night we were woken up by electronic noise and loud voices. We ate breakfast in the restaurant one morning and liked the food and felt the service was good. From the hotel it was a short walk to the Plaza which we found very convenient. La Mision was in a quieter spot than some other hotels we walked past however note that the buses in the city do start running early in the morning (around 5:30am)!

Charming colonial hotelPosted Feb 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had a great time in Mérida, in large part thanks to Misión de Fray Diego Hotel. The hotel is in a beautiful colonial building with lots of architectural details, in contrast with the decor of the rooms, which was understated, befitting the the original purpose of the building (a monastery?). The room was decent in size. I found the bathroom a little bit uncomfortable as there was no counter space at all, so I had to put my toiletries on the sink, or on the floor, or on the toilet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious, except that, for my taste, the chef was a little bit on the generous side with the salt. The hotel is 2 blocks from the main square on a not-very-well-lit street. However, I soon found Mérida is a very safe city.

Great locationPosted Feb 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel a nice place to come back to after an afternoon in the hustle and bustle. Very peaceful and beautiful courtyard, restaurant and pool area. The rooms are sparse and the beds a little on the hard side, but I thought the price we got on Hotels.com made it a great value. We loved the bartenders and waiters. A few things to be aware of, scrambled eggs with sausage = scrambled eggs with hotdogs, special rooms are not that special, they don't have windows and are closer to the restaurant, street and noise. The standard rooms have windows and overlook the pool and are quiet.

Peace and quiet in the heart of it allPosted Sep 25, 2012
Pros: The ambience, the staff and the location.
Cons: The lighting in the bathroom.
Location: Conveniently close to the zocalo, restaurants and shopping.
The staff at Mision Fray de Diego are lovely, helpful and friendly. The place itself is beautiful with a peaceful ambience that feels almost spiritual. It was relaxing just to sit at breakfast and listen to the sound of the fountain gurgling or to sit by the pool and watch the gardeners tending to the climbing vines. While the rooms and bathrooms are a little dark, that fact seemed to be in keeping with the monastic feeling of the hotel. Its location is perfect, just two blocks from the main zocalo, safe and accessible to all the action of el centro. I will stay there again on my next trip to Merida in November.
