We had a great experience at El Jardin. Helpful and friendly staff, great atmosphere and beautiful spot. Really easy to meet other travellers and share stories on the many amazing things to do in and around Merida! Hope to come back again and would definitely recommend.
We stayed for a few nights in el jardin and it was perfect!Very well located,not far from the bus station and from the center and VERY quiet in the vibrant city of Merida!The room was nice and very big,the garden is absolutely lovely and the people working there are very kind and helpful.We felt like we were visiting family.The breakfast was delightful,we have nothing bad to say about anything! All of this for a more than reasonable price, if you go to Merida, you definitely want to stay there!
Good value for private rooms. Rooms basic but clean. Staff helpful.
El Jardin staff and friends made it for us. Jose, Barry and Elsie went out of their way to make us welcome. The rooms were comfortable enough, though our room could have used a cover over a stark bulb. They have cool banandas over frames that we've seen at hostels like Candeleria. Those would have been nice. We liked being to be to use the frig, they had a outdoor kitchen where you could cook a few things if you asked. Still close to downtown, the location is not nice looking from outside.
The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was adequate. Convenient to bus stations and downtown. We did feel a little uncomfortable walking back to the hostel at night from downtown because there was no one else on the street..
