“Not the best bargain in Morelia”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We stayed here for three nights. The WIFI never worked. We requested a fix and it never happened. We moved out early as we had to conduct business. Young man at front desk is sullen and generally unhelpful in Spanish nor English. We had our meals at Hotel Casino--great staff and WIFI. Next time in Morelia it will be our choice hotel.

he best coffee in morelia and arguably the best and freshest mexican food as well.

the restaurant is located in the courtyard with stone pillars with marvelous sense of history. not easy to find.. you have to go about a half block from the place las armas down toward the tarrasco fountain on the right side. there is a sign that says cafeteria. it is not a cafeteria. the food is mexican fare but cooked excellently and always fresh and clean with the kitchen visible behind a glass screen. service is unobtrusive and downright elegant with white shirt waiters with black aprons. it is to me the best place to have a coffee, read a paper and just take in the food. the coffee is made in an espresso machine and an americano is from fresh beans and not a nescafe in all the other places. the milk is warmed and hot.

highly recommended and the prices are surprisingly low for the quality.

Room Tip: i did not stay at the hotel. the restaurant however is worth a detour.

When travel in Mexico, I always try to find some of those beautiful, elegant, boutique-type small hotel housed in a traditional building. They could be called Casa, Villa, Mansion or whatever. This mansion hotel is one of them, and it is very good in terms of price, location, facility and service.

-Located very close to the central plaza. No problem to walk back even at midnight. Coming from bus terminal, taxi is around 35-40 pesos.

-I got a loft unit on the 2nd floor. Downstairs is a sitting area, and upstairs a big bed, with spiral staircase. A pleasant surprise. Bathroom is spotless and elegantly remodeled. The bed is comfortable, with duvet comforter and nice linen. Just don't know why they put 9 pillows on it. The room is facing the main street, but seems quite sound proof. I had no problem with the noise.

-Not all staff can speak English. The manager on duty did, and he's very helpful and friendly. You can also book the butterfly excursion through the hotel.

I highly recommend this hotel if you are going to Morelia.

Room Tip: The loft on the 2nd floor is very nice.

we made online reservations for this hotel and were not disappointed - price, location and the hotel did not let us down! Beautiful old stone mansion converted into a stylish hotel. All modern amenities, nice bathrooms.

Great location in downtown Morelia, at walking distance from almost everything.

The hotel is nicely decorated although in some aspects not so functional, more for couples than for business. It was also quite hot when we slept there, and the location of the air conditioning machine was not the best (almost pointing at the bed), so it took us a while to set it up properly so we could sleep fine.

Otherwise the bed was super big and very comfortable, and we didn't have any problems with street noise during the night. There was some loud music coming from some nearby place during the day, though, but it didn't affect our sleep at all.

The staff was also polite and everything went fine with them.

Summarizing: great location, nicely decorated (it looks quite luxurious), decent price and -minor nuisances aside- good overall experience. There are probably better places in town but I also wouldn't mind repeating this one.

We stayed one night in October '12. The rooms are decent enough with high ceilings and big plush beds (the kind that come with a silly amount of cushions and pillows). There is air-conditioning, wifi and cable although the channel availability isn't great, and the cafe in the courtyard/lobby seemed fine although breakfast is not included and Vips (American style diner) is right next door.
Unfortunately the valet parking is not great, as such unloading bags was stressful and someone left the radio in my car on meaning the battery drained in the night and then wouldn't start in the morning- I got charged for someone to give it a cable start and we were delayed about an hour- not great.
The staff were also fairly attentive but not exactly bending over backwards to help.
In all it was just ok, reasonably priced and right next to the Cathedral, but nothing special.

Room Tip: I wouldn't say in a room facing the main road due to traffic noise, the others are ok though.

We moved from the Turotel, which I would rate as excellent, only because we wanted to be close enough to walk to all of the historic places. We looked at the rooms in a number of hotels near the cathedral, and they were drab and over-priced, but as soon as we saw the rooms in Mansion Real, we took them - they had the wow factor - modern bathrooms, flat-screen t.v.s, a spiral staircase to a loft bed, also with a flat screen t.v, and 20-foot tall french doors. The walk-in price was higher than the advertised internet price, as we chose a suite at the rear of the hotel so that we wouldn't have the noise of the traffic on the main street. We paid approx $80 for each room, which did not include breakfast - the only let-down. This hotel won't work so well for older people, as it has a lot of stairs - a huge, grand staircase to the rooms, and then, if you get a suite, there is the spiral staircase to get to the bed, with the bathroom being downstairs off the sitting area. We loved the location, just a couple of minutes to the cathedral, and it was quiet because we were not facing the main street. On Sunday evening, we were thrilled to watch a free Mexican folk dance performance in the park beside the cathedral - a colorful and exciting highlight of our trip. The hotel has a restaurant, and I enjoyed a huge cappucino for 25 pesos. They also have other meal specials, but we chose to eat at one of several vegetarian restaurants we found close by. One word of caution: when we checked out, a hotel employee took our suitcases to a cab, and put them in the trunk before we even had a chance to establish the price of the trip to the bus station for our trip to San Miguel de Allende. We were charged 100 pesos to the bus terminal, which was a significant overcharge. So hold on to your bags, and call your own cab so you can establish a price BEFORE your bags are inside the cab.

Room Tip: Pay a few dollars extra and get a quiet room at the back of the hotel.
