“Perfectly Adequate Acueducto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2008

Following the suggestion of another T/A member, I booked my room using the Sidestep booking agent. It did generate a very attractive rate for this city, which, for some reason, has very high hotel rates.

The location was a block from the main drag between the city's center and the aqueduct and Santuario de Guadalupe (which was perfect for 12 December). The room, on balance, was comfortable and quiet -- probably more so than many of the more expensive places near the Cathedral.

On the minus side, there was not a lot of charm in the place -- it appears to be a place that caters to business travelers and meetings. Also, there was a hefty charge for Internet use and I couldn't even figure out how to get it to work.

The little groovy bar across the street has Wi-Fi (unrestricted) as do many other eating/drinking places, so it' was only a minor inconvenience for me.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2008

Hotel Aranzazu in Morelia is one of a small Mexican chain. I booked through a travel website on Sidestep.com and the price was great compared to their rack rates. The hotel is well located, a few blocks from the main squares/catheddral yet on a quieter street. A big market is just a block away and there are two other hotels next door with handsome restaurants. The Aranzazu was very clean, had a pleasant restaurant (although the breakfast prices were out of line) and a very nice lobby area. I was given Room 205 which was a kind of suite, with a large room with a table and a nice bedroom with 2 queen beds. The bathroom was very large, had a great tub and shower. It had large windows facing the inner patio but it was never noisy even with the windows open for fresh air. I really enjoyed my stay at the Aranzazu and highly recommend it.
