“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Just spent 3 nights here, Rm 120. Furnishings and bath were very good and comfortable. Had a window of sorts with a view of a service corridor. The room was too warm for my taste with no a/c but only a fan. There are only 6 rooms with a view window to the main plaza across the street and a tiny balcony. Those rooms are 102, 103, 104, 105, 106 and 107. Can't beat the price of $68 with cont. breakfast and taxes (Expedia). The hotel's restaurant, Lu, is exceptionally good.

Room Tip: Rooms 102-107 are best as they have a window to the outside for ventilation.

Only 1 night, found it to be an unbeatable location, comfortable rooms, everything worked well. Small elevator which was a problem for groups but only small so just use the stairs! Was a large difference in room quality depending where abouts your room was but none were bad/unusable.

We spent 3 nites at this hotel, having travelled by bus from Zihua to attend a soccer match and do some sightseeing.The afternoon manager, Jose Govea, was incredibly helpful, in assisting us to get tickets to the game(which was a sell-out), enlisting the help of a friend and fellow soccer fan, Gilardo Becerra, to pick up the tickets and deliver them to us, a feat which we could never have figured out on our own. Gildardo also helped us out, when we were told that we could not take cameras in to the stadium, by safely returning our cameras to the hotel, in his taxi. Gildardo's taxi company is called "Lindo Michoacan", he speaks very good English, and he was honest and helpful.
We also wanted to explore Patzcuaro and area, and asked Jose for suggestions.Despite being very busy with hotel clients, Jose took the time to arrange a tour for the next day with another trusted tour operator,Rodrigo Munoz Jiminez, of "Great tours Morelia".We were picked up at our hotel the next day by Rodrigo, in a very comfortable Suburban, and were given the tour of a lifetime, stopping at some beautiful historical sites, given a hands-on demonstration of copper pot making, and treated to a delicious traditional meal.Rodrigo was also a great resource for historical information about the area. We feel we received excellent value for this tour,and were returned to our hotel after almost 11 hours, just in time for the spectacle of the cathedral light-up, which should never be missed.
All of the staff at this hotel were helpful and very friendly, and we were told by one of the housekeepers that she feels like part of a big family working at the hotel Casino.Our Spanish is rudimentary, but everyone tried to help as much as they were able. Jose's English was perfect, and he made our entire stay more enjoyable, and memorable, than we had ever hoped for.
The option of the continental breakfast is well worth it...fresh fruit,granola with yogurt, delicious fresh buns, and your choice of coffees...all included.
This is a great place to experience the wonderful city of Morelia, and we highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the square are noisier, as the music goes on until after 2 on weekends, but we feel the...

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.
