Great location, great view, great room!
The services were not as expected or as mention on the website (no breakfast included, no massage, no spa, etc.)
The view it’s amazing , very romantic at night . It would have been much better if they have the restaurant or bar open so we could appreciate the view .
You can hear all the noises of the guest passing by
Beautiful hotel in rustic, traditional design. It contains a lot of wood, potted plants, a fountain and many lovely decorative items. Staff was super friendly. The gentleman who did the check-in immediately (without even asking!) provided us with the region's programm for Semana Santa, pointed out the most recommandable events and informed about temporary road closures we had to keep in mind. The hotel is located on a hill and has a stunning view over the lake including Isla de Janitzio. Our room had a terrace facing the lake. It was so relaxing to sit there at sunrise with a hot drink (the room includs a coffee machine and proper coffee!) and listen to the sound of the wind chimes. The hotel is located on a hill. It is possible to walk down to the center in 20 minutes.
Walls are paper thin, we heard our neighbours all the time. This was especially annoying at night time. The curtains do not block out the light. This is an issue as the hotel premises are very well illuminated at night. Our room featured a lovely terrace, but the terrace door is not secure. It has a lock, but with a little push it could be opened. This could cause issues as the terrace is theoretically accessible for every guest. Close to our room there was a generator that caused regular noises. There is a simple breakfast buffet available, but 165 MXN per person is by far overpriced! No idea if this was a raise during Semans Santa or if the lack of alternatives is exploited here. The hotel claims to be "eco", but house keeping threw away the soap bar we had used only for a day. The last 200 or so meters of the road to the hotel are steep, without asphalt and with huge holes. Parking is very limited and contains obstacles (tree trunks, holes, concrete corners, etc.). WiFi is extremely weak, in our room it did not work at all. But forget about the web, enjoy the view!
The location offerred a panoramic view of the lake, mountains, and city. The hotel as viewed through the photos on their website is accurate. Lovely. The weather on the hillside where the hotel is located is cool to cold. A 15 minute walk to downtown brings you to “pleasantly cool”. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and whwn I inquired about breakfast the next morning learned that breakfast was an only on Sunday event...at this time. The staff was helpful...it took a little doing to get a good wifi signal...but mission accomplished. My companion was cold...cold...cold. An electric heater and extra blankets were available in the room to offer comfort. At this time in Pátzcuaro and the State of Michoacán gasoline is difficult to acquire for your car. All 3 of Pemex stations were closed. 1 independent operator had gasoline... and cars lined up for 4 blocks...with walk-up customers with large empty plastic gasoline containers in hand. Areas of Mexico are experiencing a shortage of gasoline due to pipelines being tapped and corruption. None of the Pemex stations on the toll road/Cuota from the Pacific Coast north to Morelia had any gasoline. So remember...if you are driving a car in Mexico...when you come upon a gas station with gasoline stop and fill-up/top-off your tank. Viva Mexico
