The pictures of the room are deceiving our room was very small. The view of the lake made it worth it though. Thank goodness they supply a heater... it's very cold there in January. Not a real friendly staff as far we could tell.

Pet friendly, great for relaxing, and have the most awesome view of the lake. The rooms have jacuzzi, is little bit quiet and the staff is very nice. They take credit card. The give-aways are all eco friendly. There is a yard with a fantastic view of the lake during day and night.

Very enchanting inn with B&B qualities at the top of a hill in Patzcuaro. Stunning wrap-around views of the entire valley. Very charming and cozy. Not to be confused with a luxury hotel, this is definitely eco-friendly and bare in terms of ammenities, but the hotel does not claim anything otherwise so there's no reason to criticize.

The views up here on El Estribo are always gorgeous, and usually we go to Hotel El Porton, but lately the food and service there have been sadly lacking. So we were thrilled to find this place, right next door. It's a hotel, but their restaurant is open to the public (only open for breakfast, unfortunately, but late, thankfully). It's cozy and quaint (get a table by the window for the best view over the valley and lake), the food is really good (mostly organic), and the service is that rare combo of friendly, welcoming and attentive. The server even came by to ask how everything was and if we wanted more coffee -- quite rare in Mexico. Great value, too.

We stayed for three nights and the staff was really warm and welcoming. For my wife's birthday they got flowers and a cake. They even help me sang "Las mañanitas" really great moment Parking is available in front of the hotel, enough for the rooms they have. To move around Patzcuaro you need either car or taxi. Room decoration is just like you see in the pictures, furniture is new rooms are actually a little larger. Patzcuaro can get a little cold at nights but the room had heating so no problem Breakfast (only continental included but they have full service a la carte) was really good, service is slow but it helps that the restaurant has the best view. With some time you can "book" the front seating.

The hotel was one of the best on our 15 day trip to Mexico. We stayed four nights. Beautiful, peaceful view, wonderfully decorated in and out. Took many pictures of hotel furnishings and of course, the view of the lake, fog, etc. Sam the manager and Tim an American living in house across the lane were too kind and helpful to be adequately described. Reasonable walk into town. Coffee and maker in room for early coffee. Easy parking out front. Comfortable beds. More than adequate bottled water. Continental breakfast included, but full add-on breakfast offered for a reasonable price. If a person wants to enjoy real Mexico, Patzcuaro is the place to go.

A retreat to nature. Amazing view of the lake. Located on a mountain but close to town (taxi is safest due to traffic on the way to town). Safe and relaxing environment. 30 minute hike to El Estribo. Worth the trip!

Excellent place for to take rest. We spent there last day of year and then few more nights. There were a night dinner option in restaurant with great viewed. Some of the others visitants were making barbecue outside. Both options are excellent when you can have your small dog with you and in the midnight enjoy good firework. I recommended to take one of the small cabins with kitchen and view. Excellent breakfast we asked serve outside in garden, so we could enjoy them during the reading a book and have in front amazing view to the lake. Walking distance to city center allowed us enjoy maximum our stay. Definitely will come back again.
