This is a beautiful apartment house within historic downtown Morelia. A great place to visit any of Morelia's imposing sites by foot. And after that, return tou your cozy apartment. A place to rest and be in the middle of every thing at the same time.

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.

This review is not about Casa Baden Powell rather about the language school nearby which is under the same ownership. I spend 2 weeks studying Spanish there in July of 2016. The school is perfectly located on the edge of the city's Centro Historico close to markets, banks, attractions, the major city park, transportation and places to eat and go out at night. Morelia is a beautiful, safe and wonderful place to learn Spanish. It's off the American and European tourist circuit so immersion and practice is easy in an air of authenticity. There is enough to do and see in the city, as well as several day excursions, to fill up even a long stay. I was very imipressed with the school for several reasons: 1. The teachers are excellent. They love the Spanish language and know how to teach it in an engaging and interesting manner. I was so impressed with them. I've kept in touch with several via e-mail. 2. The schools methodology is logical and smart. The day is divided into 4 parts, each almost an hour in length. Grammar, grammar review/excercise, conversation and a special class devoted to some of the more difficult/confusing things about Spanish. Each one is taught by a different teacher. There is no opportunity to get bored, rather it's easy to stay engaged the entire time. This method also allows teachers to monitor your progress within a certain area. 3. The institute has a neighboring English language facility and there is a conversation group at the end of each day with the first part in Spanish and the second in English. It's a great way to practice what you've learned and meet locals...all of whom are learning English for different reasons. A word about weather in summer - after I made my reservation I checked the weather and realized I stupidly chose the rainy season. Well, it's now first choice for subsequent visits. It rains almost every day..but once or twice for anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, that's it. The daytime temperatures are in the 70's and not humid. No air conditioning was needed, though there is supposedly a period of hot weather just before the summer rainy season.

If you're looking for a place to stay in the (fascinating and beautiful) city of Morelia, look into Casa Baden-Powell: they have furnished apartments in the Historical Center, within easy walking distance of a range of many great restaurants, or you can cook your own meals in your own fully equipped kitchen. Also within walking distance are wonderful landmarks like Morelia's main Cathedral and Aqueduct, the Museum of Candy, and more. Plus, while you're there you can study Spanish at the Baden-Powell school- comfortable classrooms, superb instruction at very reasonable prices, wonderful instructors, and very small class sizes. They have conversation from noon to 1 pm, Monday through Friday, and at 6 you can have more conversation with other Baden-Powell students and native Spanish speakers from local universities (they help you withbSpanish, you help them with English). Why stay in yet another hotel when there.'scan alternative like the Casa Baden-Powell?

We stayed in the apartments while we studied Spanish at the Baden-Powell institute just a couple of blocks away. In 5 weeks we needed a fresh food market, a supermarket, laundry, drugstore, convenience store, dentist, good restaurants...everything was within walking distance, although we took a taxi back from the supermarket with heavy items. I think the location and the king size bed helped make Morelia one of our favourite cities in Mexico.

This small apartment hotel is just what one needs when one is in Morelia. It is quiet, elegant, beautiful, comfortable, and has the best shower in the city, in my opinion. The small living room is fine for a visit with an old or new friend, the kitchen is small but fully equipped, the dining table ample, the king-sized bed wonderful with cotton sheets and warm blankets, and, best of all, the bathroom! I love a shower that is like summer rain and especially one that has a bench in it. Fabulous! Casa Baden-Powell is perfect for a short stay and seems likely to be even better for a long one. It is a few blocks from the Plaza de Armas and a block from another of my favorite haunts, Mescaleria Tata. Casa B-P was a delightful experience, not the least of which was getting to know Eugenio, its affable owner.

Baden Powell Apartments is a perfect place for those wishing all the luxuries of a hotel, but it's really your own private apartment. There are 8 different units to choose from. The lovely 2nd-floor terrace is a great place to relax after a day of touring. Eugenio, the landlord, lives in 1 of the units, so if problems arise, etc. he's available 24/7. Eugenio is a gracious host. The apartments are decorated beautifully and every modern convenience for the kitchen is available for your use. I would definitely return to Baden Powell if I were in the Morelia area in the future.
