My friend and I stayed at the Medio Mundo for 5 nights. We enjoyed it, but there are a few improvements I think they should make at a hotel that charges as much as they do. It was by far the most expensive hotel I stayed at in the Yucatan... where I spent two months. (My friend joined me for... More

This is a small hotel in the old center of Merida. Very clean, quiet, and convenient to the old town. Here is the low down: Location: ~3 blocks from the main center (old city catherdral).

We had occasion to stay at the Hotel Medio Mundo at the beginning and end of our visit to the Yucatan. We have stayed at several other good small hotels in past years but we liked the Medio Mundo the best. - We arrived very late in the evening and were met by a friendly, helpful man. - Like most...

We just returned from a historical and cultural exploration of Chiapas and Yucatan. This beautifully restored colonial hotel is a treasure. The genuine hospitality, service and friendliness combined with the decor, the gardens and breakfast made our stay exceptional. We want to go back! We chuckled at a previous comment about the friendly men around the main square. We had... More

This is the sort of place we love. When my wife and I travel, we look for places that are centrally located, safe, clean and fairly priced. That's the least we'll accept. When we find something that fits that that is also "special", we're very pleased. Medio Mundo is special. For one thing it's beautiful. They got that "hacienda courtyard"... More

This hotel was great, and the staff are exceptional. The rooms are very tastefully decorated in a renovated colonial mansion with lots of character. The courtyard is gorgeous and the backyard is a great place to relax. Breakfast of fresh fruit and artisan breads and cheeses was delicious (though a little repetitive over a longer stay). Highly recommended!

This is my first review on trip advisor after using the service for years. My family and I found Hotel Medio Mundo to be one of the nicest places we have stayed anywhere. It's not a fancy luxury hotel but is a beautiful small hotel with rooms surrounding a tranquil garden courtyard with a fountain. The staff was excellent -... More

Three years ago we stayed at Hotel Julamis and concluded that it fully deserved its #1 rating in Merida. This year we wanted to go back but they were fully booked. With some trepidation we decided on Hotel Medio Mundo. Our fears were unfounded and it is now our joint #1. It is perhaps $10 per night more expensive but... More

Located within walking distance to Centro Merida, the hotel has a tranquil courtyard, tastefully decorated. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean with no distractions, i.e. television, radio, telephone. The breakfast is ample and tasty. Wi-Fi only available in courtyard. The staff were cheerful and helpful. Nelson, the owner, is the most-interesting-man-in-the-world. The rates are reasonable. I'd stay here... More

Can't really add too much to the other positive reviews. Would definitely stay here again. The only comment I would make is that when they say on the website that there is wi-fi in the common areas, that is true and there really isn't wi-fi in the rooms. We were able to pick up signal in our bathroom with the... More
