We stayed at the Gran Hotel for five nights in june this year. The hotel is a colonial style building built in the 1950's. It is well appointed and immaculately clean. Everything worked as intended. There are two room facing the plaza and we had one of them. The Bocanegra plaza is quite active and a little noisy at times but all was quiet by 9:30pm. The hotel is owned and managed by a Mr. Ochoa who is there everyday to manage all the little details that are so important in a business of that size. The personnel is attentive and well trained. We seldom eat at the hotel where we stay, but in this case we ate practically all our meals there, because the food was good and reasonably priced and again the kitchen and the dining room were super clean. This hotel offers excellent value. We saw others costing two to three times as much and they didn't seem any nicer. Why pay extra for the Frida Kahlo fluff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Patzcuaro and I must say that we felt safe the whole time we were there and never once did we feel threatened or uncomfortable. Patzcuaro may not be the romantic little town it was 50 years ago but is still one of the prettiest places in Mexico in my opinion.
