"Quiet & Comfortable, yet close to all the Action!"
My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Posada Toledo from February 12th - 19th while visiting in and around Merida. We originally booked for only 3 nights, but kept extending our stay because of the wealth of activities to do in the region. The hotel is only a few blocks from the main square, so you are close to all of the action, but without the noise. We stayed in room 21 (located at the end of the hall on the 2nd floor) and we were very pleased with how spacious it was. We even did a workout in it one morning! The shower was a bit on the weak side, but the cable TV definitely made up for it as we were able to catch some Olympic highlights after a long day. While the staff don't understand much English (except for the owner's son), everyone was always pleasant and helpful. Our stay came with a complimentary daily breakfast served in their charming colonial courtyard which included a generous portion of fresh papaya fruit, tea (or coffee), and a variety of sweet breads. There is an a-la-carte menu available, but since we were on a budget, we stuck to the free stuff. It did became a bit boring, but we were satisfied. Admittedly, the rooms could use a bit of updating and some of the decor is somewhat creepy, but overall, for the level of comfort (the mattresses are exceptionally comfortable and the room was dark and quiet at night), you really can't go wrong at this price-point. The main downside is there is no on-site parking, but this was a non-issue for us back-packers.
