Located across from the. Basilica, with a great view of the city. Large room, king size bed, fireplace, big windows overlooking street. Bath had lots of hot water, thick towels, even a towel warmer! Staff was very accommodating, even lighting a fire in our bedroom fireplace. There were street noises but they did not disrupt our sleep.

For a beautiful and relaxing stay in Patzcuaro, Meson de San Antonio is a much better value. The restaurant at the Posada has a nice view, but the service is painfully slow and disorganized and I think I just got sick from my breakfast there.

We stayed only one night in Patzcuaro last week, and stayed at la Basilica which I don't entirely regret. It's a small and super cute place, but it could be so much more! The grounds and the rooms are really nice and clean, but none of the staff that we encountered spoke any English at all (even a little would... More

The rooms are big but cold, no heater, no chimney that works. The bathrooms are old and ugly, the administrator will book noisy events right next to your door, and don't even dare to ask her for a little bit of quite in the middle of the night, she will not care and will ask you to leave the hotel!...

No heat, no hot water, fireplace didn't draw, no internet. All in all, an overpriced, noisy disaster. There are several much better choices for less money in the city.

This hotel was recommended by friends and we stayed there one Sat-Sun night in November. I do agree that the restaurant is good and has a very nice view, that the location is good, staff was nice, rooms were simple but cute. But if you are looking forward to a good night's sleep, do not at least stay in the... More

I stayed here with my husband for a week. The Jr. Suite includes a soaking tub (hard to find in Patzcuaro) which was great after a day of walking the city or taking a day trip. Also had satellite tv that got CNN International, ESPN Deportes, and all the local channels. The room was clean and comfortable, beautiful furniture and... More

We have stayed at the Posada La Basilica every time we have traveled to Patzcuaro. We never regret it and in fact always look forward to going back. The staff are incredible. They are one of the biggest factors in our happiness there. Each room has a fireplace that the staff will graciously light for you at your request each... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week, and loved every minute. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in, with sun-dried cotton sheets. The restaurant was amazing, both for its view of the town and the excellent cuisine. For Valentine's Day, the staff filled the upstairs mirador with candles and set up a table just... More
