Atop 19th C townhouse, with views of the belfries and domes of the nearby downtown you are enveloped by the city lights and Mayan Cosmos. A prime location only 4 blocks from the Main Plaza and only one block from the colourful Santiago colonial neighbourhood. Rustic Mexican aerie has a queen bed and breakfast is included and served in the hotel bar/dining area. The property has a cenote-type tropical pool near the Old Kitchen and Bar for you to use.

Жилье

Penthouse Rooftop Apartment four blocks from the Zocalo, in 19th C. mansion dating from the heady times of lots of money, Mayan workers, and the cheap raw materials for creating wealth - henequen and chicle. A house museum and a step back in time.

Presently available, one Rooftop Room, bath, and terraces. There is WIFI, but no TV. Filled with the trappings and echos of other centuries.

Easy access to many forms of urban transport, the nearby plazas and parks, and the city center a few short blocks away. The illuminated cathedral can be viewed from your terrace.

Thirty-five years experience serving visitors to Yucatan, Q. Roo and the Caribbean.

Santiago, our barrio, was, and is, one of Merida's colonial neighborhoods. Like spokes of a wheel, these neighborhoods circle the core of the old city, and include a plaza, colonial church, market, taxis, and street life. Six of these satellite neighborhoods still exist only 4 or 5 blocks from the Main Plaza and Cathedral.

In Mexico, you can go anywhere by public transport - a bus to the shopping malls passes in front of our building - the first and second class bus stations are 5 blocks south. Taxis pass continually or can be called.

Hosts speak Spanish, English and Maya and are musicians, yesterday's tour guides, historians, and have owned and operated a seaside copra plantation as an educational field station on the Caribbean.

This place is in incredible. Great location, close enough to get to the center yet removed enough to not feel over crowded. Fresh breakfast every morning. Spacious rooms. Great atmosphere. Roger and Jorge made me feel at home. Will definitely stay here whenever I'm in Merida.

We had a great stay at Roger's place. The house is beautiful, clean and centrally located. We will definitely stay here again the next time we go to Merida.

This home is a treasure, filled with gorgeous antiques; every corner has a new and delightful picture or piece of furniture to enjoy. The home was built in 1850 and it is being lovingly restored while protecting the charm and original elegance. Our rooftop room was large and comfortable with a rooftop deck overlooking the beautiful city of Merida. Roger is thoughtful about ensuring your stay is an experience. He is a great communicator and his humour was appreciated. He is easy going and helpful. We enjoyed the simple yet delicious breakfasts. The location is excellent, an easy walk to all the main squares of Merida. If you want to experience Merida's old world charm then this is an excellent option for you. It was just perfect for us!

I can not rave about this gorgeous hotel enough. Our stay was an absolute delight. Everyone was wonderful, and somehow managed to achieve the perfect balance between privacy and service. I truly feel like this was a magical stay. Oh and then there is the exquisite decor and architecture, which will have everyone ooooo-ing and ahhhhh-ing endlessly. Also, hot coffee and delicious breakfast, plus great recommendations and easy walking access to all of Merida's beautiful downtown. Oh and if you drive, there is a small hotel half a block away with a secure parking lot, that only changed us 100 pesos a day to park our car. This place was a dream. I would recommend it to anyone going to Merida, in fact I want to go back myself!

Roger's place is a must to stay in if you travel to Merida. The top floor room is even better than the pictures show and the terraces are great. We had a bit of confusion early on with the room description as it had originally said there was a kitchen. But with such an amazing breakfast included in the rate we didn't miss the kitchen and didn't really need it as there's so many nice places to eat in nearby (Roger and Jorge can provide recommendations).

Was it a house, a gallery, a museum?!? I still do not know for sure. What I do know is that I feel very lucky to have stayed in this amazing place. The house literally feels like a time machine, that transports you back over a century ago. The hosts (Roger & Jorge) are extremely passionate about the city and the whole of Yucatan peninsula, and you will never be short on tips... Breakfast and occasional happy hours are a great addition too. Go ahead and book it now!!

Thirty-six years ago, I , Roger, arrived here, convalescing from an accident, and now almost four decades later, I know that this is where I must remain, as this city fills my most important educational and cultural needs.
Co-Owner, Jorge Manzanero, was born on one of Yucatan’s historic and iconic henequen haciendas, within the shadow of the ruins of Mayapan, helping prepare me for the life of explorer and tour guide which filled the decades of the 80s and 90s. Stevens and Catherwood were hosted at Xcanchakan, Jorge's birthplace, in 1845, perhaps by some of his own relatives. After the breakup and expropriation of Yucatan's henequen haciendas by the populist president, Lazaro Cardenas, in 1937, the family stayed on as modern day slaves or servants working in the quasi feudal system, until the 1950s when they were given a new opportunity and jungle lands in the frontier territory of Quintana Roo, where he grew up.

Many generations of Merida’s elite have owned and operated the Xcanchakan Hacienda and it was, for them, “the big house in the country”. Several large townhouses served its owners in Merida and our present city-centre townhouse residence was one of them. Built in the 1880s, by Vicente Solis, architect and ex-haciendado, he also built the Lighthouse in Progreso, and was one of the architectural engineers of the State Captiol Building of Yucatan, located on the Merida's Main Plaza, four blocks away. Our home has hosted a president, been owned by artists, explorers, chicle exporters, and an adopted son of the state’s governor, The historian, writer and chronicler of Yucatan's Caste War, politician and temporary Yucatecan governor, died here in 1900. Chicle and henequen made the home’s 20th C. owners rich.

Jorge occupies the rooms once used by the high born elite of “La Casta Divina”. Today the former law office of the hacienda owners is converted into our apartments !

Full circle, history and events have bourn us.
