The hotel is located in an old fashioned house built around the year
1915 (nearly a century ago) during the period of the Mexican Revolution,
which had not a lot of presence in Yucatan because of the peaceful
spirit of the population which are characterized by the kindness, the
hard working, the romanticism (for example, the Yucatecan music) and
with strong family values.
During that period, a group of Lebanese immigrants arrived in the Yucatan and established and founded very important Henequen Haciendas, carrying with this an important prosperity to the state. One of these Lebanese immigrants was Mr. Chafic Katrib, who built four similar houses in the limits of downtown (now, our Historical Center) and they were offered for sale at $30, 000.00 Mexican pesos, each.
One of these houses was bought by Mr. Félix Herrera who was an important businessman in the transportation industry. Mr. Herrera lived in the house until 1963, the year of his death. The house was inherited by his daughter Maria Neri, who lived it with her family until 2003, the year when she died.
The house was inherited by owners who decided to open it as a small but lovely hotel; showing the little details which have been witnesses of the history of the family for nearly a century. The fourth generation of the family (two young teenagers), accompanied by a professional team of workers are presently offering the best services in hospitality for you and your family in Mérida.
"Warm and family atmosphere" is one of the characteristics of Casa Nobel
because the members of the family (father, mother and sons) attend to
your comfort, making you feel like at home.
The origin of the name “Casa Nobel” is inspired by the honorable Alfred Nobel as homage for his humanistic spirit. The hotel has two sections: the antique one and the new one.
