“Nice hotel; quite a range of rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Hotel Casino is a charming hotel with a wonderful location just across from the cathedral. My friend and I were able to walk to all of the sites we wanted to see with the hotel as our base. It was very clean and secure. We stayed here for 5 days, with a trip in between. The first night, we had a beautiful and spacious double room with a balcony and view of the cathedral! It was wonderful and if this had been my only day at this hotel, I would have rated it a 5, hands down.

However, on our return, they had only singles available. We were fine with this, until we found out that we were paying almost the exact same price (890 pesos) for a room that was half the size, had one window that faced a brick wall and the other window opened up to the center of the hotel next to the blender in the bar, and a bathroom smaller than many RV bathrooms. After one day, they were able to put us back in a non-balcony double that was much larger and more comfortable.

Overall, I really enjoyed this hotel. The staff was both helpful and friendly, the food at the downstairs restaurant was great (order the chilaquiles verde!), and the amenities are nice (free washing machines, computer, treadmill, etc). I would recommend this hotel without hesitation, although I would suggest bringing ear plugs for sleeping and asking for a double room ahead of time!

Room Tip: Ask for a double room, balcony if possible

We looked at the number one ranked B and B and were quite disappointed so we decided to check a few of the hotels closer to the Plaza. . This one was great! Only $64 USD, we opted not to include breakfast. It was clean, elegant, stylish with perfect beds. As we were on the 3rd floor I could hear abit of city noise coming in over the rooftop but my husband and friends in the next room didn't notice it at all. In the end after I read restaurant reviews we did eat breakfast there. The eating area was elegant, great artwork and very gourmet breakfast choices. All in all...fantastic. We'll be back!!

Room Tip: We asked for an inside room and said...mas tranquila por favor and our room was great. They had a he...

What a wonderful find! We stayed in Morelia seven years ago and fell in love with the city. Now that we live in Mexico we still think Morelia is the best city in the country. Now we have a favorite hotel that will enhance our future travel here.

With an excellent location, top notch staff, clean and comfortable rooms, and extraordinary restaurant we couldn't do better. But then to do it at a great price makes us very happy.

We drove to the front door, valet parking was hassle free, had a quick check-in and went straight to the room. We found a spacious room and bath considering the age of the building. The room was interior, which meant quiet even with busy nightlife outside.

Breakfast was included with our package, but we opted to order omelets as well and the creative flavor combinations were outstanding. After a quick checkout and swift auto retrieval we were on our way home.

Now we have to start planning our next trip. We love Morelia.

It could help if they said "diagonal from of the cathedral" or "on the arches." The price we got was a great deal USD$60, wifi included and valet parking. The location is quite nice for walking. Tiny bathroom if you are shy then you would not like the slim door and little window towards the room instead of the street. Ask for rooms away from the street, noise can get through and the church ranging bells.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from the street.

We stayed here for 1 night and would have stayed much longer if time had allowed. We had a balcony room facing the main plaza and the cathedral lit up at night was beautiful. The room was charming and full of character. It was a little noisy when the karaoke started up downstairs but I would recommend staying here anyway.

I vacationed in Morelia over New Years and this hotel was a great place to stay at. Especially for the price. When I booked my room, I went ahead and also booked the daily breakfast, which was completely worth it. There were two of us, and we each got tea or coffee, a juice, fruit with granola and yogurt, and a muffin. Plus the restaurant is very nice and a relaxing place to sit and plan for the day. If you eat the same breakfast in the restaurant without paying beforehand, it will cost you more than twice what you payed at the booking time (it's one price that is for 2 people.. so like a 2 for 1). Our room had a balcony that looked out onto the Plaza de Armas, which I would totally recommend. Know though, that most of these balcony rooms only have one bed. Even though it says when you book that there will be two beds, I think that there are only two rooms that are big enough for two beds. Another plus was the free hotel washer and drier. The front desk will even give you soap if you ask.
