Hotel Villa Montaña Morelia is situated outside the town on the southern side - so a car or taxis is needed. If you're not accustomed with driving in Mexican cities - taxis are the best choise.
The complex (compound) is the vision of a French architect, who gradually designed and constructed the place as it is today, which is a charming maze of small 2-3 storey villas and a large terrace giving the most magnificent view of Morelia city and the Parque Juarez (a zoo) from south. You can also see the cathedral from here - but go there and see for yourself - it's worth a visit
The rooms are rustic in the decor, but fairly large as an average. The interior is dark, and the lighting can be insufficient. A make-over would be good - but then again it might incriminate the original intentions of the creator - I don't know
For people not coming from Mexico, the tv channels are not offering much.
The room and the bathroom was clean with sufficient amenities.
My room was facing towards north (towards the terrace) and with a large fly-screened window facing south.
During second night of my stay some WOOPS apparently had an enjoyable stay in town and decided to continue the debate in loud voices to compensate for their alcohol-impaired hearing. So after yelling something obscene at them in my native tongue, they decided to at least move a little away. Thus try to get a room away from the main paths.
The breakfast is OK - though it is fairly expensive after Mexican standards - but it's served with style.
All in all Hotel Villa Montaña is a nice place in what must be considered a safe part of Morelia - I was in town a couple of nights and did not find it particular unsafe, despite all what you hear about Mexico.
