Casa del Balam

Quaint, charming, and retaining a Mexican Art Deco charm, Casa del Balam sits wise and strong in the Yucatan Peninsula town of Merida. The hotel is well-maintained, with gleaming surfaces and 52 spacious rooms. Bright and airy, each room offers modern comforts such as air conditioning, TV, and radio. Feast on traditional Yucatecan specialties at the Casa del Balam restaurant, where an elegant setting adds to the romance of each dish. Later, take a short walk into the historical part of town. The plaza is just a few steps away, where one may catch sight of salsa dancing in the park. The Hotel Casa del Balam is one of the oldest and most distinguished hotels in Merida and the Yucatan Peninsula, known as the "grandmother" of all hotels is also one of the few Art Deco buildings that are still seen in this colonial city. Inside, decorative wrought iron accessories and thoughtfully placed rocking chairs create an ambience that is both festive and leisurely. Guestrooms are unusually spacious, sound-proof and appointed in the warm, colonial style found throughout the property.
