Hotel El Tarasco
Ranked #7 of 12 Hotels in Uruapan
Reviewed 23 July 2006

We stayed for 2 nights in June, 2006. We chose this hotel after reading TripAdvisor, but also because it is slightly off the main square and so likely to be quieter. We were also ready for a modern hotel after a series of charming but quirky colonial ones.
We were very pleased indeed.
We did not have reservations, but June is a quiet time and it was not a problem.
We always ask to view a few rooms before deciding, and we chose one not overlooking the pool, but rather, on the street (4th floor). They spontaneously offered us a discount - much appreciated.
Nice big room, bright, with a/c and 2 beds, well appointed, comfortable. Only possible complaint was the smell of cigarette smoke from the 2 adjoining rooms, seeping in during the evening.
Pleasant staff, lovely pool. And the nearby national park is not to be missed - it's truly transcendent.
A great location for exploring this interesting city (a working agricultural centre, a change from the colonial gems like Morelia). There were many nearby cheaper restaurants and excellent coffee shops to lure us out of the hotel, so we didn't eat there, but it looked very nice.
I'd go back.

Reviewed 25 August 2005

The Hotel El Tarasco is in a perfect location in Uruapan, just off the main square so the noise was a non-issue and about a 15 minute walk to the Parque Nacional - a must-see for every visitor. The staff was exceptionally helpful, offering service without being asked, e.g. "If you would like a fan, I'd be happy to bring one for you". The place is immaculate and well staffed with an excellent restaurant in the building,which served some traditioanal Tarascos
meals along with other inexpensive, elegant fare. Our room was on the 5th floor with a view of the POOL, complete with a slide and a waterfall which we could hear from our room when we opened the windows. The view of the mountains was magnificent even though our visit was during the rainy season in August, 2005.
We could see the clouds forming and hugging the mountains, like a couple in love, and then see and HEAR the torrential rainfall on the clay-tiled rooftops of the buildings in the neighborhood. And then, during the night, it would
clear and the lights would twinkle on the hills and it had the feel of a magical Christmas scene. Also, the bed was probably the most comfortable I've had in Mexico - a memory-foam mattress atop regular bedding (oh my!).For 2 people we paid about $80 USD. For a single, the cost was about $70 USD. Worth every penny!!! You can e-mail them at: ----
