Hotel Mi Solar
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Uruapan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 16, 2009

Mi Solar is a true gem. A beautiful facility, large rooms nicely furnished, surrounding a beautiful Colonial courtyard, a friendly and helpful staff several of whom speak English, and a convenient location just a block away from the plaza. The pleasant hotel retaurant provides a good breakfast, gratis, and becomes a cozy bar from 6 to 10 P.M.

Uruapan is another Colonial city not on everyone's travel itinerary. But it is well worth a visit. The National Park is a wonder of nature with a large dose of engineering ingenuity producing a series of cascading streams and waterfalls. The local truchas (trout to us) have a well-deserved reputation for excellence, and are prepared in a variety of ways. A day trip to Patzcuraro by bus provides an interesting diversion, both for the town and the scenery between.

We stayed here for 2 nights and we we have enjoyed every minute of it. The inside court is such a great place to sit and sip a tequila. The bedroom is (although a bit dark) incredibly comfortable with excellent mattresses. Breakfasts were excellent and copious. Reception staff were very helpful in giving directions, restaurant tips and providing internet access.

My husband and I, as well as another couple, had the pleasure of staying at Mi Solar during Semana Santa while we visted the folkart market in Uruapan. The rooms were great, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and breakfast was tasty!! We had the pleasure of meeting the owner of the hotel and he was also outstanding -- going the extra mile to help us out with some of the logistics of our trip.

Would definately stay again and recommend!

I just spent part of Semana Santa at the Hotel Mi Solar. It is very centrally located to the Plaza de Ranitas and Zocalo, both which have major functions during Semana Santa. It is also within walking distance of the Parque Nacional. The Mi Solar is a charming B&B with excellent facilities and excellent service. The staff is helpful, friendly and very professional. Their concern that all their guests are well taken care of and enjoy their stay truly does seem genuine. English is understood and spoken if that is a concern.

The rooms are clean, well appointed and comfortable. Rooms in the back are quieter than those in the front. Breakfast is ample and well prepared. Two of my favorites were the Huevos Divorciados (2 sunny side up eggs atop a tortilla, one egg with salsa rojo and the other with salsa verde) and Huevos Poblanos (2 poached eggs in a delicious sauce based on poblano chiles and then topped with cheese and gratineed.)

I travel frequently in Mexico and the Hotel Mi Solar was one of the most pleasant hotel stays I've had in a long time. I highly recommend this property, it's well run and an extremely good value for the price.

This was our second visit to Uruapan but first at this property, The hotel is in the center of it all and a short walk to Parque Nacional. Our room was large with a king size bed and all the amenities. The price included secure off street parking, a full breakfast and evening cocktail. Sergio went out of his way to make a duplicate CD of our favorite Cuban and Mexican musica as a gift. Much appreciated. We will return.
