“Disappointing”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I have stayed in the Virrey de Mendoza, Morelia 4 times prior to this visit and have always been satisfied. This time I reserved a room with two double beds as I was sharing the room with friends. The room that they gave us was an interior room, which is common in Mexico, and arrived to find that neither the ceiling fan nor the air conditioner were working. I was shown two different rooms and neither room had decent ventilation and in both cases did not have an air conditioner. As I arrived late I accepted the room that I had and was given a floor fan which really did nothing to improve the poor ventilation.
The Virrey has one of the most beautiful hotel locations in the city and overlooks the magnificent Zocalo or central square. The structure is spectacular and was at one time in history an opulent private mansion. One could not ask for a more perfect place to stay but it is extremely important to make sure you do not have an interior room.
The room we booked had a delicious breakfast included in the price which is well worth the extra money.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the older part of the hotel facing Calle Madero or the square.

The hotel is very well located and is kept in pristine conditions. The staff is polite and the rooms are neat and cozy
The building is perfect for taking pictures, most of the areas reflect the beautiful architecture and style from the colonial times, the skylight above the front desk and restaurant is simply spectacular and right across the street you can enjoy a tour of one of the most stunning cathedrals in America
If you are looking to know more of the magic of the old Mexico, this hotel is an excellent choice

Room Tip: The rooms with a view may be noisy as they face one of the main streets, however, they are excellent...

The Hotel Virrey de Mendoza, located on the main square in Morelia Mexico is a beautiful hotel, old but restored with modern bathrooms. Gorgeous stained glass ceiling (shown in photo.) Reasonably priced and courteous staff. Free valet parking is a plus. (One needs a car to make the scenic drive to the butterfly reserve about 3 hours away.)

Decided to overnight in Morelia while attending Morelia en Boca (Food and Wine Festival) and happened onto Hotel Virrey de Mendoza. It's in a great location, adjacent to the city center. It is within walking distance to all the attractions. Upon arrival you are made to feel special from all the employees. The lobby is spectacular. It's a grand open arched space with a stained glass ceiling three floors above you. Truely stunning. 19th century furniture adorns the hotel which gives the property its charm and character. Only stayed one night, but wished I could have stayed longer.

I've stayed at this historic hotel before and would happily recommend it again to anyone wanting to be in central Morelia across the street from the Plaza and one block from the Cathedral. Beautiful lobby with stained-glass ceiling and large rooms with comfortable beds and good bathrooms. The restaurant is good and a delicious authentic Mexican breakfast buffet is offered as well as dining outside on the front portal facing the plaza and cathedral.

this is very nice hotel located right beside the city's cathedral. it has a very nice breakfast and is closeto everything. because it's in the city's center you will be hearing music till 2:00 am during the weekends, but i still think this is a very nice option...
