Gorgeous colonial hotel in the perfect location. Close to shops, restaurants and activities. The staff is very accommodating and helpful. The inter courtyard is peaceful and there is also a restaurant onsite.

This is an old colonial hotel with a range of rooms from large to small. The small ones on the inside of the hotel have no outward windows which is great in winter when the temperatures get down to 10c or colder. The location is perfect being on the Plaza Chica and only a block from the Plaza Don Vasco....

What a wonderful old part of Patzcuaro this hotel is. The vibe is wonderful. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated in an old Mexican/Spanish theme. The check in was prompt. Stay here and you will feel like you are part of the historical vibe of the city centre. The restaurant is fine and also well staffed. We hope to...

Finally after 20 years a dream came true - I got to Patzcuaro. One of the highlights was staying at the beautiful Hotel Casa del Refugio. The rooms, and entire hotel were spotless and beautifully decorated with Mexican art. The staff was very friendly and helpful - and lots of fun! While breakfast in the dining room was a bit...

We booked this hotel on-line on their own website. They took credit card information, but did not put any charges through until after we arrived. We liked our rooms but the one thing I would recommend was that you get a room off the street. I think they give you those rooms because they have balconies, but when the trucks...

I never actually stayed here. I booked in mid-November and my credit card was immediately charged for 2 nights. I then cancelled, well within the time I was allowed to cancel without a charge. On Dec 6 I went to the hotel in Patzcuaro and was promised that the refund would be processed that weekend. It was not. In early...

Warm beds, but old, faded and stained pillowcases and pillows and bed cover. Good blankets. Breakfast ok, you get choice of eggs,...

Hotel right on one of the main squares, shopping all over. Staff and bellman were great, bellman found us a parking spot in front of hotel. Don't forget to visit Tzintzuntzan, and explore the many ruins nearby. Very pretty countryside, about 5 hours from Zihuatenejo and Acapulco. Will go back, definitely.

We were in Ixtapa for 2 months and went to Patzcuaro for 3 days about the 20th of February 2013. The hotel was hard to find as very little signage but it was really worth the search. Its on the small square where the local people congregate. Went through the main door and "WOW", a restored 17th century structure, with...
