Hotel Via de La Plata
Beyond any doubt the main attraction here is the theatre and the amphitheatre at Merida. Imagine fourteen thousand people shouting, watching the beasts and the gladiators fighting.
This Parador keeps the structure of the 18th century convent that was built on the remains of a temple dedicated to the Concordia de Augusto.
Roman, Mudejar and Visigothic artifacts adorn the interior creating an intimate, welcoming atmosphere. The main sitting room is in the former chapel
of the convent,
Numerous gastronomic suggestions are offered by the restaurant.

|We booked Merida along with other paradores on our trip to and from the costa del sol. By mistake we arrived at Merida a day late as it was the check out date we read. Reception then rang the Sallamanca paradore which was the next stop to verify our booking. The desk were very helpful and could not do anything as we were due to catch a ferry, we therefore made our way to Sallamanca. We have stayed in Merida on previous occasions and enjoyed the experience.|

|We enjoyed our stay in September 2013, spacious room with view, excellent bathroom. Able to walk easily to roman sites, river and main square and shops. Excellent breakfast, wifi available, swam in the pool and used the gym. We arrived at night and reception warm and welcoming, we would highly recommend staying at Merida.|

|We stayed here two nights in August while on business. Very nice hotel - good location (once we found it!) and managed to park in the street close by and nice and central so that we were able to walk around. Staff were very, very helpful. Dinner was excellent and the breakfast buffet was absolutely fantastic - never seen so much choice. Nice bathroom but we thought that the bedroom furniture was a bit dated - the beds were incredibly hard - felt that we were staying in a Convent!|

|Our stay May 18, 2013 Thel Parador of Mérida the place to have a rest and enjoy the warm atmosphere of the historic building. We enjoyed the wide range of the breakfast buffet as well as the garden. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The on-site parking is helpful. It's best to get to know the old city on foot. Very convenient location in Mérida to visit the worthwile Roman ruins and theatre as well as the excellent Roman Museum. We find the Golden Days for over 55 years of age a good idea. Definitely we will come back when we are in the Extremadura and try to stay in another parador as well.|
