This small hotel is well located in the heart of this beautiful city which dates back over 400 hundred years. The front rooms offer a lovely balcony with a small table where you can chill out while enjoying the view of the park and churches.

This hotel is very basic. We had a room on the ground floor which was basically a horribly windy hallway. I have never stayed in a hotel room without a window before and I have to say, I'd rather not repeat the experience! It felt very claustrophobic. The walls are obviously very thin as we could hear every single word... More

My guidebook (thank you Lonely Planet) didn't indicate that this had long since joined a chain and described this as the city's 'best midrange hotel' - they were wrong! The hotel isn't 'high design' or even minimalist - it is bare. All that said, I had a view of the main plaza & cathedral and the room was clean. The... More

This is obviously a budget hotel, but we didn't expect to get a room with no windows! Actually, there was a small strip of glass about 6 inches wide at the very top of the ceiling, but that was it. The room smelled musty, probably because no air ever gets in to it. It's located well, opposite the cathedral and... More

This hotel really only shows the best in the photos, Something that you will not get. Our room was small, without an opening window, which seemed to give to some sort of interior patio. Room was smelly of humid and something else, and dark. Shower was ok, but the washing sink was inside the room, in a tiny space making... More

Formerly the Hotel Vallodolid, thiis is now a CityExpress hotel, sort of a Mexican Motel 6 with an attitude. The rooms seem to be clean although very small and sparsely furnished. The former hotel lobby has been rented to a fast food operator; the reception area is now a long, skinny room, containing a small registration desk, that was probably... More

Despite of what I read here, I decided to stay at the City Express Morelia (Hotel Valladolid). It is now part of a small mexican chain, of budget priced bussiness hotels, so I had no great expectations. Check-in was fast and the guy at the register was very friendly and corteous. They had my reservation, so I lost no time.... More

We stayed 3 nights for our first trip to Morelia. The receptionist was literally making fun of us, as she though I did not speak spanish. This hotel has been recently purchased by city express hotels, and did not have any previous reservations! we had to wait for hours to have our room. Once installed, the room was extremelly small,...

To be fair, it had just opened when I stayed there. Rooms are small, but very well, attractively designed. Laminate floors, nice bedding, LCD TV. Very cool decor. Nice storage area. Baths had vessel sinks, which I don't care for, but I know a lot of people think they are cool. And it keeps you from accidentally knocking your stuff... More
