“Great location in Patzcuaro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2009

Gran Hotel is located on one of the main squares in Patzcuaro, but it's not an all-night party kind of town so the noise is not a big problem. There are rooms of various sizes - as a single mine was on the small side room, but pretty and very comfortable; they even provided a filter coffee machine and hairdryer which you don't usually find at this price. Same day laundry service at bargain rates. Front desk staff were always helpful and friendly even though the hotel was packed and they were kept busy. The restaurant has tables under a portico right on the square - a great place for breakfast. There is a nice terrace on the top floor as well as comforatble inside seating areas on each landing (useful when it's pouring with rain outside!)

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2007

We stayed here for one night after rolling into Patzcuaro late in the evening via bus from Zihuatanejo. While the Gran Hotel looks very nice and has a marvelous lobby, the room was barely big enough to turn around in and had no windows . . . well, except for windows that faced the hallway in both the room AND the bathroom. This made it a little weird and quite loud.

A few nights later (after staying at yet another hotel on the square) we moved to the Casa Encantana and were blown away by how much more you could get for $40 a night . . .

  • Liked — Location was nice
  • Disliked — Weird windows in the room that gave a view of . . the hallway . . . and a view of us to all
