A wonderful experience in a beautiful hotel! Amazing food also ! Andres is a super waiter !!! The atmosphere is tranquil and extremely restful and so photogenic!

This is a very nice hotel in Morelia and very well situated a half a block from the cathedral and plaza. The beds are large and comfortable and the bathroom is especially nice. Ask for a room off the street. The shutter type window treatment allows for almost total darkness. The courtyard is very pretty and a great place to relax. Service is also very good. I give four stars rather than five simply because the foodservice alternatives are not what I expect in a five star establishment. However, there are plenty of breakfast, lunch, dinner and drink options within a couple of blocks so don't let that deter your booking.

After looking at rooms in four hotels I went with Hotel de la Soledad.
Wow, I am so glad I decided to spend a little extra money to stay at this fabulous hotel. The building was built in 1701 and is of the classic baroque architecture as is much of the historical central district. Just a half block from the cathedral and around the corner from the Casino Hotel where you can sit have a drink and watch the people. My room was fabulous as well as spacious and seemly very new. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, really nice people. The price includes an American style breakfast. I had a room on the 2nd floor in the back that was very quiet and safe. Many locals come for wedding photo shoots because of the grandeur. For me it was expensive but I was glad I stayed there.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are a little more money but worth it.

I spent 4 months in this hotel few years ago, and every time I am back to Morelia I enjoy spending at least couple of nights here. The service is excellent; they make every effort to anticipate your needs.

This time I stayed in the new side and even if I adore the old part the comforts of the renewed one are excellent. In the old part, there is not AC; in Morelia in the hot summer days, in the room can be hot even if the thick wall is a good isolator.

The garden is beautiful, peaceful great cocktails and lovely restaurant; on the weekend they also have live music, excellent to start the weekend. The view of the cathedral from the room upstairs is amazing.

Room Tip: in summer new side in winter the old side

Had stayed at the La Soledad a few years ago and it was a nice, very well located hotel and a wonderful, colonial and historic city.
They since started renovating the hotel. We stayed in the renovated rooms, which are beautifully done. I believe it is well on its way to being a deluxe hotel.
We were 3 adults and were given a very spacious room with 2 queen beds. the wall above was beautifully done with light to enhance it.
The bathroom was very modern with a slanted sink of light cream colored onyx which could be lit.
I highly recommend it. It is 1/2 block from the main street and the Cathedral.

Room Tip: believe rooms in the back are nice and quiet.

I last stayed in the Hotel de la Soledad in 2007 and it wasn't a very pleasant experience. In the ensuing 6 years ownership and management of the hotel has changed and some serious, and much needed, renovations have been completed. All I can say is WOW, what a major change, all of it good.

The rooms have been upgraded and modernized and are bright, clean and most of all comfortable. Bathrooms received total overhauls and now feature beautiful stone work, rain shower heads, wall mounted double sided mirrors that light, and lots of room. The beds are cozy and certainly conducive to a good night sleep; a major departure from some of the rock hard mattresses found all over Mexico. The new beds at the Soledad are made up in what appear to be high-count bed linens and sport an abundance of pillows in various sizes, shapes and firmnesses.

Service at all levels was outstanding. It really seemed all the staff were working together as a team to ensure that guests had to best experience possible. The public areas have all seen substantial renovation and the staff did everything they could to help guest enjoy them, whether it be at the morning breakfast buffet or providing refreshments to beat the afternoon heat. If it's an issue, there are enough people on the staff with English skills so that any problems can be easily and quickly resolved if necessary

On a recent trip with friends I had not been looking forward to staying at the Soledad. So glad I let my friends overrule my concerns as this turned out to be a real gem. The only reason I didn't give it a "5" is because some of the interior rooms tend to be quite small, and the outside rooms that border the street tend to be noisy. There isn't much the owners can do about either of those 2 situations, but they can detract from the overall quality of the stay, especially the street noise.

The Soledad is centrally located and within walking distance of most major attractions tourists want to visit. The new ownership and massive renovations make it the best and most logical place to stay. It's a charming, lovely and very well run hotel.

The walls are thick the feeling is old Mexico and it is close to everything. We had a great stay and would certainly return for another visit. It is a very short wealk to the cathedral and you can see the church from the second flootr and quite nice at night when being lit or already lighted. There is a very nice area for drinks or casual conversation in the courtyard. The staff was very helpful in making arrangements for adventures.

Room Tip: 210 is avery nice king bed and a small sitting room. We were very quiet.
