“Always a joy!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We have stayed with Rose many times at Casa Rosa, and Casona Rosa on Galeana which is fabulous and this review site addresses, over the years, but this time we stayed 2+ months at her apartment around the corner on a cross street. This is a lovely, traditionally Mexican 2 bedroom, 1 bath, fully furnished and equipped apartment home in a gated private courtyard with other Mexican homes, and affords an authentic Mexican family experience, which is what we needed to have. Very nice neighbors, in a very safe area, who could not have been more helpful and kind. The main plaza is a two block walk right out the front gate. It is perfect if you need more privacy than a hotel, but still want guidance from Rose and her staff. Your every need will be met, just ask. It has good secured internet, cable TV, a stocked kitchen to get you started, comfortable beds, and ample furnishings and appointments.

We wanted to use this location as an experimental abode for an upcoming move to Morelia and it met our expectations just fine. A lovely place to hang your hat and still look to Rose for help if you need it. You are close to everything Centro has to offer; museums, music, as well as mercados, restaurants, abundant little shops and groceries. If you are driving your vehicle, let Rose arrange for garage parking around the corner for a very fair price per month or week. Some garages are too small for a large super crew cab pick up like ours, but she will know where you can go.

At one point, I became horribly ill with a respiratory virus, on top of my asthma, and was taken to a small and very gracious hospital (La Luz) for treatment. Rose's staff knew just where to take me, and the care I received was dignified, superb, and ridiculously inexpensive. Only $56 USD for everything including Rx's and breathing treatments. The nurse and doctor were wonderful and I was turned around in record time.

Rose's properties are not easily classified as you get the personal attention of a B & B and a posada or inn, but the location and amenities of a good hotel, What sets her places apart from all others, is the feeling you get when it is time to go. YOU DON'T WANT TO! She moves heaven and earth to make you feel like part of a new magical family that you never knew existed. A place where you can't wait to come back to for TLC and new, endearing respect for Michoacan. How does she do this? Simple... it is magic, and only Rose can pull it off. You'll see. :)

Casona Rosa was an amazing experience, we were made to feel so very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for our beautiful hostess Rosa, with her warm heart and open mind we soon became friends and shared many laughs together. Our room was so comfy and cosy, and Maria's breakfasts are to die for. All the rooms are tastefully decorated and unique. We found the location great and everything within walking distance. We had a wonderful and informative day out with Jesus. We would highly recommend Casona Rosa and would stay here again.

At first I was nervous about travelling to Mexico with a 3 year old and 1 year old, but Rosa put my mind at ease. Rosa is a diamond in the rough, the grandmother I wish my kids had back home. She let us use her stroller for day trips and had a pack-and-play for night time. She was always available for travel advice and planning. She even helped me put my baby to sleep when nothing else worked. What I appreciate most about the hotel is that the rooms are spacious, the wifi is strong like the coffee, and the morning pastries are to die for. Casa Rosa has a charm that rivals the city of Morelia iteself.

Rose is what make this a great place. She is very friendly, and goes out of her way to help by offering suggestions and problem solving. She also has a computer she let us use. The room was nice, the bathroom a bit cramped but functional. Rose has a lot of experience in running a B&B/Inn. The price was reasonable. We would stay here again.

Rosas house was absolutely stunning. The suite we were staying in was airy, bright and very tastefully decorated. We also had use of another separate room and an ensuite. Rosas recommendations were spot on, from things to see, to places to eat in. The location is perfect, only a few minutes walk away from the main sights. There was such a lovely atmosphere in Casa Rosa and we met some great people there. I would highly recommend this place to anyone considering visiting Morelia.

This was our first trip to Mexico, and Rosa and Maria welcomed us with open arms. Not only was the inn comfortable, roomy, and a great deal, but they helped us set up day trips with drivers to other towns, advised us where to go to dinner, and for a modest extra $6 each, fed us authentic Mexican breakfasts every morning. Our last night, Maria even took us to a special dinner in the basement of a church in another neighborhood. In a word, it was magical.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back to avoid street noise at night.

Excellent place to stay in stunning Morelia. In the historic center. Service and attention provided by Maria could not be better. I have travelled the world and have never been received in better fashion in a B&B. Maria speaks fluent english, is very informative and attends your very need. Right from the start she took care of my wife who had stomach disorder upon arrival and until the end when she cooked a great local breakfast for us (that was a special she did as they do not serve breakfast there), Maria was so ever thoughtful.

I cannot say the same about owner Rose who took advantage of us in a manner which I've never experienced before. We went together on a day trip to Patzcuaro and other stops with her usual local taxi driver, Jesus. We were told that she would be getting off at the first stop, Pacula, to visit a friend and hence she would not be paying. It was going to be only my wife, myself and Jesus for the rest of the day, a private tour, so I agreed to pay for the whole affair (more than one night's stay). Jesus came with a small car for that same reason. To our great surprise Rose had invited another friend to join us! A friend who would also not pay because she was getting off with Rose in Pacula, supposedly. Well both of them did not remain in Pacula ( the first stop) and w/o even asking us, joined us for the whole day... Without paying anything or even saying thankyou. My wife who sat on the backseat of the small car with them was squeezed like a sardine the whole time she spent in the car.

Despite this unfortunate and bizarre event, i recommend this B&B highly, namely because of Maria.
