We needed a modern and convenient hotel in which to stay in Morelia following surgery. After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, and staying at Turotel, we are not surprised that it has won First Place in the Hotel category for Morelia.
Among the attractions for us were its location, on the eastern outskirts of the city, not in the beloved, charming, but traffic clogged central part of the city. Another attraction was the breakfast buffet and room service We made use of both and were pleased by the freshness of the food and the speed of room service. (Albeit that all we ordered was juice and mineral water, but even though it was at 1 o'clock in the morning, it took only 5 minutes for room service to deliver the drinks.)
Most important of all, our room was spacious, with two double beds, an ample desk, a comfortable easy chair, a large dresser with huge drawers and a small but adequate lavatory-bathroom combination. More on that in a moment.
Seldom have we used AC in a Mexican hotel, but here it was useful due to the strong Autumnal sun. But most of the time, we just set the AC to "Fan". Although our most recent room faced a busy peripheral road, the room was quiet enough, unless ambulances were passing.
The beds were very comfortable, the bed linens sleek and soothing and the pillows soft.
I was a little nervous at first parking outside, in front of the lobby, and not in some locked compound. But apparently Security is vigilant and we passed three nights without incident.
Housekeeping was spotless and detail oriented.
There is a small but pleasant pool on a first floor terrace and a lounging area with tables and deck chairs. It's pleasant, but a very minor attraraction for us, as is the small adjacent gym room.
Internet access is very important to us, and here there was some faltering, as our connection would at times fade and disconnect unexpectedly. However, several wifi routers were detectable and if necessary, I could go to the lobby, where there is always a strong signal.
Now to the lavatory-bathroom: the lavatory was of a high standard, with all the amenities and these of high quality. The door to the toilet and shower is positioned in such away that it is impossible for two persons to enter if one is seated. (Please, don't laugh.) Once inside, the toilet is fine. The shower stall is fully tiled and the supply of hot water quick to arrive and above all, abundant. It's a joy to use the shower. Towels were plentiful, although a bit rough.
We opted for the SuperAhorros plan in which breakfast, either buffet or cooked to order (or both!) is included Our rate was $944 pesos per night, breakfast and taxes included. For the most part, the food is not of gourmet standard, but is tasty, fresh and generous. We couldn't ask for more under the circumstances,and at the price. We were fortunate to get this promotional rate, because as the holiday of Day of the Dead approaches, the rates increase to over $1000 pesos a night.
Over all, we couldn't be more pleased with Turotel Morelia, Mexico. We would recommend it to visitors wanting a comfortable stay in a modern hotel.
