We arrived the Friday of Carnavale to a jewel of a hotel and front row seats (reserved by Maison Lafitte) for a sparkling parade, the beginning of a perfect stay in Merida. Maison Lafitte is located on the main street connecting the market areas (largest in the Yucatan) past the zocalo to the mansions of the Paseo Montejo in the...

My wife, daughter, son-in-law, and I just spent 8 days (minus one night in the middle) at the Maison Lafitte. We loved it and would not consider any other hotel in Merida if we should go back. Our room (#103) opened onto the lovely quiet garden (with swimming pool); my daughter and son-in-law's room (#311) had a small private terrace....

Being first time visitors to Merida, we did not know what to expect but Maisson Lafitte exceeded our expectations. Great location - only 4 blocks to El Zocalo where everything happens. The hotel is charming with a great courtyard where a plentiful breakfast is served. Staff is excellent and was quite informative during our stay. A great place to stay...

We had a family reunion at the Maison Lafitte- three generations, twelve people, six rooms, and were mightily impressed! We arrived very late having not eaten since breakfast- no problem, order what you will. Parking next to hotel which a concierge came outside to direct us into. From that early extra sign of welcome on, the staff was unbelievably accomodating,...

For a price of about 70.00 US per night we had a safe and enjoyable stay at this hotel. It is in the historic district of Merida and close to markets, shows and many restaurants. The room was basic but we liked the courtyard, pool and staff. The breakfast which was included with the price of the room was great...

This was our second trip to Merida and to Hotel Maison Lafitte. This is small hotel located in the downtown section walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. The rooms face a garden courtyard with pool where breakfast is served. The rooms are simple but spacious and clean (we are a family of four and we had a room...

I stayed at the Maison Lafite from September 21, 2004 till September 28, 2004. The hotel was recommended by a friend, who lives in Merida. Our friend is also in the travel business. From the moment we arrived we were very pleased. The location is ideal. The staff of the hotel was very polite and extremely helpful with everything. The...

Stayed 3 nights at Maison Lafitte, although it first seemed that we would not stay there at all. The central reservation office had mistakenly cancelled our reservation (despite a Visa card guarantee taken by e-mail) and it took quite some time to get the room sorted. Rooms are nicely although sparsely decorated. We had a room that connected to another...
