“Simply Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013

What a wonderful find! We stayed in Morelia seven years ago and fell in love with the city. Now that we live in Mexico we still think Morelia is the best city in the country. Now we have a favorite hotel that will enhance our future travel here.

With an excellent location, top notch staff, clean and comfortable rooms, and extraordinary restaurant we couldn't do better. But then to do it at a great price makes us very happy.

We drove to the front door, valet parking was hassle free, had a quick check-in and went straight to the room. We found a spacious room and bath considering the age of the building. The room was interior, which meant quiet even with busy nightlife outside.

Breakfast was included with our package, but we opted to order omelets as well and the creative flavor combinations were outstanding. After a quick checkout and swift auto retrieval we were on our way home.

Now we have to start planning our next trip. We love Morelia.

It could help if they said "diagonal from of the cathedral" or "on the arches." The price we got was a great deal USD$60, wifi included and valet parking. The location is quite nice for walking. Tiny bathroom if you are shy then you would not like the slim door and little window towards the room instead of the street. Ask for rooms away from the street, noise can get through and the church ranging bells.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from the street.

We stayed here for 1 night and would have stayed much longer if time had allowed. We had a balcony room facing the main plaza and the cathedral lit up at night was beautiful. The room was charming and full of character. It was a little noisy when the karaoke started up downstairs but I would recommend staying here anyway.

I vacationed in Morelia over New Years and this hotel was a great place to stay at. Especially for the price. When I booked my room, I went ahead and also booked the daily breakfast, which was completely worth it. There were two of us, and we each got tea or coffee, a juice, fruit with granola and yogurt, and a muffin. Plus the restaurant is very nice and a relaxing place to sit and plan for the day. If you eat the same breakfast in the restaurant without paying beforehand, it will cost you more than twice what you payed at the booking time (it's one price that is for 2 people.. so like a 2 for 1). Our room had a balcony that looked out onto the Plaza de Armas, which I would totally recommend. Know though, that most of these balcony rooms only have one bed. Even though it says when you book that there will be two beds, I think that there are only two rooms that are big enough for two beds. Another plus was the free hotel washer and drier. The front desk will even give you soap if you ask.

In our years of traveling to Mexico and to Morelia, we have certainly slept around town. While some of the more fashionable hotels are on the hills overlooking the city, I must say that I really like being in the center of things. Hotel Casino certainly fits that bill! Smack in the center across from the plaza and the cathedral, it is a lovely base to walk around the historic center, and appreciate the beautiful way that the city illuminates its historic buildings. They have remodeled since our last visit, and our room was tastefully decorated and most comfortable. As it is a very old building it may not conform to what one would typically expect with windows onto the inner courtyard or in the case of the bathroom, an air shaft, but a small price to pay with the modern conveniences of wifi and a lovely restaurant in the lobby. Shopping around can get you a killer deal on the room rate, and if you want to upscale your ambiance, stroll over to the bar at the Virrey de Mendoza on the other corner of the plaza. Morelia is like a grand dame of another era, and Hotel Casino is a great way to transport you there.

We chose this hotel for its location overlooking the Cathedral and Main Plaza on a Saturday night. At $55USD/night, it is a good value. We had requested a room overlooking the Cathedral with the understanding that it may be a bit noisy during the evening hours. Not sure about the size of the other rooms but we found ours to be a bit cramped but certainly clean.

We did experience a problem created by the front desk. We knew that on Sundays, they closed the road in front of the hotel for bicycles and people walking. When checking in, we asked about retrieving our car from valet parking at 7am since we were making the long drive to Oaxaca on Sunday and told it would be no problem. I went down to the barely open front desk about 6:30am to request our car. Well Senior: "the parking garage does not open till 8am". This delayed our planned departure by over an hour and prevented us from meeting up with another vehicle making the same trip. We have traveled so much in Mexico that I knew getting upset would do no good and that this was more of a matter that the front desk told us what they thought we wanted to hear!

Room Tip: The interior rooms are probably quieter but we wanted to catch the action below.
