I had apt 1, closest to the street. Noise was not a problem as I am deaf. I loved the option of having a kitchenette if I did not want to go out for meals. However the are several nice options nearby if you so choose. The laundromat and the yogurt shop and the bakery close at hand were a definite plus. My plan is to return in December and I know where I plan to stay.
We just finished a two week Spanish language course at the excellent Baden Powell Institute and had the pleasure of staying at these apartments close by. They are well furnished and maintained. Fully equipped kitchen, living area, bathroom and a comfortable bed. Outside sitting area. Quiet and secure. Many excellent restaurants close-by. It is within the central historic area with all the fine museums and churches within easy reach. Great value for money. We won't hesitate to book again on our next visit to Morelia.
I took language classes at Baden-Powell Institute for 2 weeks, 4 hours per day plus conversation club at 6pm. Great, patient, Spanish teachers. Loved the experience. Also stayed in Casa Baden-Powell apartments, just around the corner from the school. Every detail thought out for the 1 bedrm condo I rented. Can’t recommend it highly enough! Thanks.
I am staying at an upper end hotel but just saw the rooms offered at Baden Powell, very nice and comfortable. The language school is excellent and I have a lot of experience with Spanish language schools and teachers. I recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn or improve his or her Spanish. Well structured and very good teachers. I thought I could not handle four hours but it went fast and was not overwhelming.
Our 11-unit apartment building had been converted from an old house. With white stucco walls and a red-tiled roof, it was attractive and had a sense of character. We especially liked the sunny terrace, where the residents, most of whom were from the upper Midwest and were taking classes at the instituto, gathered in the late afternoon, giving us a chance to socialize a bit. Although we didn't take Spanish classes, we felt welcome. Our host, Eugenio Cortes, was especially warm and helpful. The location is ideal. The street is quiet, but the cathedral is only about half a mile away. Minibuses run up and down the streets nearby, taking you to the anywhere you'd want to go for eight pesos -- around 30 cents US.
