Yucatan Peninsula: Casa del Balam Hotel

Casa del Balam Hotel

The friendly Casa del Balman Hotel is situated just a couple of minutes’ walk from the laurel-lined main plaza. Its central position is convenient for visiting the attractions of Mérida and there are many open-air cafes in the vicinity and a charming ambience.

The hotel is in a converted historic house, with a courtyard in the middle and a modern block at the back. The decoration is classy but homely throughout, with heavy dark colonial furniture, wrought iron beds and marble-effect tiled floors adding a touch of colonial grandeur. A live pianist accompanies restaurant diners in the evening.

The 'L' shaped swimming pool has a small sun terrace with loungers and abundant foliage, affording unusual privacy for such a central location.

What our experts say

It's a beautiful family-run hotel. Although it has as many as 57 rooms on 6 floors (there are 2 lifts), it feels quite small and intimate. I particularly like the central courtyard with stone carved fountain and lots of lush green plants.
