  • Hotel Plaza
    Step past Hotel Plaza's reception desk on Calle 26-A and you will find a surprise: a calm, motel-style courtyard stretching from one end of the block to the other, and lined with shops.

  • Hotel Plaza
    This is the plushest place in town but the quality, and the large swimming pool, comes at a price. The grounds are lovely, the decour, although a little garish, is actually quite smart, and the staff are friendly. Rooms are well equipped and the location, just off the corner of the main square

    A great value, varying in price and size, this family friendly hotel is a short walk to major downtown tourist attractions. Rooms are simple but clean, with private bathrooms, cable TV, ceiling fans and daily maid service, some with kitchenettes. There is on-site parking, and a real bonus for hot a

  • Hotel Yeneka
    This hotel/bar/restaurant is an eyeopener as soon as you walk in. Panama hats line the roof and there is a rock theme running through the whole place. Rooms are upstairs circling the bar down below and they are large but a little scruffy. If the bar gets busy, don't expect an early night - that's wh
  • Hotel Sagamar
    This looks welcoming from the outside and the location is handy for the Zócalo and the cliff divers, but once through the door the whole place is a little bit basic. Rooms have balconies and attached bathrooms and while they are clean they are very simple. There are no real communal areas and you c

    This place has seen better days and has now been overtaken by its neighbours in quality.

    The tall and skinny Hotel Artica has 12 neat rooms on the upper three floors, each with a bed, bathroom and basics. The cheerful staff insists that noise from busy Mina Street doesn't travel upwards, but we'll let you be the judge of that. It's close to the second-class bus stati

    Hotel Colonial is best known for its extremely popular daily breakfast buffet, but it is also a good value, mid-range Merida hotel.

  • La Zapoteca & Hotel Mitla

    Two of Mitla's hotels are family-run—extra rooms surrounding working patios —with restaurants for guests or passers-by. Think budget, humble and homey. My pick, La Zapoteca, is cheaper, and closer to the ruins on 5 de Febrero. Twenty clean, spacious rooms have private

  • Banana Magic Hostel

    The dated surfboard-sign out front says it all: funky, hippie crash pad. Inside, expect a bed and a shared bath for rock-bottom prices. Flop on the couch and catch a little tube, rent time on the computer or grab a book from the exchange shelf. If it's grub and not grubby you wa

    Think rustic and then some. This place is reasonably priced but it is basic. Wooden cabins offer simple and reasonably clean accommodation but the unhelpful owners often let the place down and there are nicer spots to stop.
  • Youth Hostel Playa

  • Hotel Alcázar
    The Hotel Alcázar promotes itself with a Medieval coat of arms, but no knightly theme is overtly discernible in the 45 rooms of this traditional family and business hotel or its uninspiring façade. Instead the ample, clean rooms with private bathrooms, air conditioning, heating and LCD TVs ar
