First, this place should be listed on the Angangueo page. We almost didn't find it until my friend noticed it on a site promoting the monarch butterflies.
We knew in advance that it could be cold in the rooms, so we paid extra for a room with a fireplace. We had to climb the stairs to the fourth floor, but it was worth it. We had a small heater as well as the fireplace and were toasty warm. A man came each evening to start the fire.
The menu in the restaurant is limited but tasty, and the staff were welcoming. My friend fell in love with the cinnamon-flavored coffee. (It was her first experience with this delicious drink.)
We had arranged through the hotel ahead of time for a driver to pick us at the Toluca airport, drive us to both the hotel and butterfly sanctuary, and to return us to the airport. It was a bit pricey but saved us a night in a hotel. We paid him separately and also paid the highway tolls.
Very few of the people we dealt with, including the driver, the hotel staff, and our butterfly guide, spoke English, so my Spanish got a good workout.
