I spent 10 days in Las Arecas in January and can find very little to complain about. Mauro is a very gracious host, and provides an excellent breakfast, always with fresh fruit and sweet roll and lots of fresh coffee. My room was in the back, away from the noise of the city, and was large and well appointed, with a modern bathroom and comfortable bed. AC is available, but I didn't need it. Kitchen is also available, but again, I didn't use it. There is nothing luxurious or fancy at Las Arecas, but if you want an honest and comfortable place to spend your nights in Merida, I recommed Las Arecas wholeheartedly. I plan to stay there on my next trip to Merida.

Room Tip: Ask for the room at the back.

We would echo the comments of previous reviewers. Our accommodation consisted of two spacious rooms plus a sparkling bathroom. The pristine linen and towels were changed every second day. All this combined with a modest breakfast, central location and friendly owner for a price under M$ 500 per night made it very good value.

Las Arecas is an excellent choice for a stay in Merida. It is an old colonial building with nice patios. Our room had a small kitchen with refrigerator but there is also a common kitchen that can be used. Room and bath room were clean. Mauro the owner is a very friendly person. Center is in walking distant. Atmosphere is very familiar.

This place is in Lonely Planet or Rough Guide travel books. It is not well noticed from the street, but it is a nice and
very quiet place to stay near the center park of Merida, Yucatan, in Mexico. I think you will enjoy the owner and his
little dog, Toto. You are free to come and go at your will and it is a nice old home with a courtyard, etc. I recommend
this place if you want to be away from the crowds at the more usual tourist hotels. There are only seven rooms and
the price is very reasonable, especially for two people sharing. Merida is a good place to fly to for the many Mayan
sites located in this part of Mexico. It was hot and humid in September, but prices were lower and the almost daily
rains (monsoons?) cooled off the place for the evening. An overhead fan was enough during the usually cool nights, but A.C. was also available to cool off hot rooms in the early afternoons. Look it up on the local maps or get the
tourist magazine offered for free at the visitors' desk at the airport This includes lots of other information on how to
best get to the ruins and the entry fees, etc.. So, ring Mauro's doorbell and check it out!

Room Tip: all rooms seem to be very quiet in the evenings; this is a quiet place for quiet visitors.

One of the cheapest places we stayed in Mexico it massively exceeded our expectations (clean, comfortable and we even had aircon!).

The owner is lovely, it's less than a 10min stroll to the Zocalo and there's a kitchen we could use to make tea/coffee and breakfast, what more could you want?

If we visit Merida again we'll definitely come back here.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled as a couple
