“Very comfortable business Hotel”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

This hotel has a very good value for money. Rooms are new with all amenities you need for a business trip. The restaurant food is good. The hotel staff is very kind and always with a smile on the face.

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.

I was very unsure of this hotel, some good reviews and one or two not-so-good, so only booked one night. The check-in was friendly and efficient. The rooms (we booked two) were spacious and very clean, and up-to-date (unlike some of the very tired rooms we saw in hotels in the old part of town. The beds were comfortable, we had plenty of hot water for showers, tea/coffee making facilities in the room, and it was quiet. As a retired person, I really appreciated the elevator, even though my room was only one floor above reception. The breakfast was the best in my tour of central Mexico - its well worth the little bit extra if paid at time of booking - lots of healthy options, such as muesli, cereals, and fresh fruits, as well as pancakes, french toast, eggs, etc. cooked to your order, and cappucino coffee. The staff were very helpful. Only drawback is that it is a taxi-ride (about 35 pesos-roughly $3) into the center of town where the Cathedral/Plaza and all of the historical sites are located. For this reason alone, we moved into a hotel near the cathedral for our 2nd and 3rd nights in Morelia.

Room Tip: My room was on the opposite side from the road outside, but the other room faced the road and was st...

The hotel is OK, just what is needed but nothing else (10 TV channels and old TV for instance). The room service menu is the worse I have seen (chips, cookies, coke, a sandwich and so forth).
Breakfast is great and the room clean. The first 2 nights were OK but this morning (I just checked out) there was no hot water to take a shower. I called the front desk and they said they were checking and would call me back. After 30 minutes I had to cal again and they said the keys of the services room were not in the hotel and I had to wait until 10 AM for the person to come with the keys.
When I come to the front desk instead of apologizing they say that these things happen and that it was an accident. And that is it! They billed me for the night and I complained. Then a lady came and mentioned that they could give me a 50% discount!!! COME ON!!!! I had to leave late and without showering!!!
So basically they do not know how to serve a client and they want US, their CUSTOMERS to take responsibility and pay for their mistakes.
I know that these things can happen, we are ALL humans... and it is OK. What is not OK is how you react to these accidents and how you SERVE your clients.

Furthermore, me and people from my company come every 2 weeks to Morelia for work. When I called to see if we could have a better fare if we always come here, they gave me a "discount" which was 10% higher than the price show in the web... So to their best loyal clients, they charge them more... Unfortunately it was my last time here...

Room Tip: I stayed in the 4th floor and tehre was no hot water... people in other floors did not seem to have...

Turotel is everything it claims to be on its website, except they forget to mention the amiability, hospitality and the high level of professionalism of the entire staff. The breakfast/brunch is delicious, whether you eat from the buffet or order a custom prepared plate, so be sure to ask for the room rate that includes this flat flee option.
The hotel is quiet, rooms feature double paned windows, light blocking drapes, excellent climate control and super strong wifi. Comfortably furnished, sparkling clean and modern, you can’t go wrong. In-room safe was over-sized, even my laptop fit.
Vanity area is separate from the bathroom, and very hot water comes out quickly. A flimsy shower curtain and tiny lip in the spacious shower area means the floor gets wet, but that seems to be pretty much standard in most Mexican hotels (and homes), so I don’t even notice anymore.
Swimming pool is moderately sized, and the water is not very warm. Still, some people were swimming and enjoying themselves. Too cold for me during my four day stay.
“Colectivos” (public transportation vans) stop in front of the hotel. To get to the Centro Histórico, walk to the stop that is immediately to your left as you exit the hotel. Take the van that says “Rojo 1.” For six pesos you get a ride past many beautiful old buildings on your way to the centro, as well as the old stone aqueducts, Villalongin park, and the fountain of the three Tarrascan maidens. The driver will drop you off at the fountain if you ask, then you can walk about ten minutes to the magnificent cathedral, passing by many stately and ornate colonial buildings on your way.
To return to the hotel, go to the portal on Calle Allende behind the Plaza de las Armas. You can take the van that says “Café 1,” which will take you back to Turotel, with the option of getting off at the Botanical Orchid Gardens (Orquideas) and the Planetarium on your way. (Make sure you check museum hours.) After your visit, return to the street and flag down the next “Café 1” van to take you back to the hotel. The bus/van stop for Turotel is called “Mil Cumbres.” You can always take the van Rojo 1 to return to the hotel as well, which is a shorter route.
Another advantage of the location of Turotel is that you can walk (15 or 20 minutes) to two great shopping malls, “Plaza Morelia” and the new and grander “Plaza Las Américas,” just a few more steps away. There is also a taxi stop in front of the hotel, and for 35 or 40 pesos, you can get a lift to wherever you want.

Room Tip: Try to avoid staying in any room ending in 01 or 03 because the view is rather boring. Instead ask f...

We spent a week at this hotel on our trip to Mexico. The staff was helpful and attentive to our needs, and several staff members helped compensate for our lack of Spanish fluency. We appreciated the personal attention. We used the free hotel washer/dryer a couple of times and also the same day laundry and cleaning service, which was not expensive. The breakfasts were included in our rate -- Breakfasts here are far more elaborate (and delicious) than at most similar facilities in the USA. The pool is private and nice. Rooms are clean, modern, and spacious. (We booked 2 rooms.) Wireless worked well. The electronic in-room safe is free and it's large enough to accomodate 2-3 laptops plus other items. For miscellaneous needs, Walmart Supercenter is a block down the boulevard. The largest mall is a $4 taxi ride away. All in all Turotel Morelia rates an A+ in our view.

I love this small hotel. It is located on the main round about road in Moreila. I offen visit Moreila for many reasons. The rooms are first class, the staff is great, and the little cafe has great food for a good price. I have been to many hotels in this area and this one is by far the best. With just 20 rooms you should book ahead.

Room Tip: Get a room that is not faceing the road, there is lots of car nosie on this road 24 hours a day.
