Hotel Virrey de Mendoza
Ranked #11 of 67 Hotels in Morelia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 November 2016

Excellent location, lots of things to do from early morning to late night. If you want to experience history, this hotel, won't disappoint. The city of Morelia is a treasure trove of well-preserved 17th- and 18th-century buildings. The hotel is located in the historic center, a great location to explore all the museums, cultural spaces, exhibition centers, restaurants, and nightlife. There is something of interest in every corner within walking distance. The beds were comfortable, the room decor is charming, the bathroom was just OK to my taste, it needs to be updated. But overall, the atmosphere is beguiling. There might be a ghost (or two), which adds a certain allure. You can imagine people from the past in all sorts of elegant dresses mingling in the great ballroom, or going up and down the regal staircases. There are countless of creepy life-sized portraits, and decor. We had a continental breakfast in the small restaurant. It was full and we had to wait for about 10 mins to be seated. Food was good, you can also order à la carte from delicious mexican dishes. There was a pianist, playing soft music in the background. The hotel is keeping up with renovations/upkeep that you might encounter. Our room location was quiet. We chose to be on the second floor farther from the entrance (can be a bit loud due to the bars and the lively people dancing in the plaza). But if you want to experience the majestic fireworks and light-show at the cathedral-- and if you don't mind the music, then a room with a balcony overlooking the plaza will suit you just fine.

Room Tip: Back rooms or second floor are quieter.

The hotel is located on the best location in town.

It is a classic and good service. The breakfast is regular.

My room had the window for inside and I'm not dure regards the other rooms.

If you care about noise, check if there will be any event in town because it most probably will be on hotel's front.

I enjoyed my overnight stay here because it was good value for money, not expensive and the building is absolutely beautiful inside. If this was run as a small luxury boutique hotel, it would be breathtaking. The decoration, furniture and paintings are kept in a museum like state. Beautiful. The rooms are decorated in a quaint charming manner fitting to the rest of the hotel. The service is what you expect from the rate. Its just over a hundred dollars for the room and the staff are friendly but they do not offer the service of a 5 star hotel, they don´t claim it either. So if you accept the service and food will be average, but want to stay in the heart of this city, in a beautiful setting you will have a very good stay here. Its a matter of knowing what you are getting for your money and appreciating the good.

Room Tip: make sure you have an ´outside´room, otherwise your window looks to the inside of the hotel.

Luxurious colonial lobby with live piano daily. Rooms are spacious. I appreciate bathrobes. I love rooms with balconies despite noisy streets. soundproof windows worked well for me. I am not a regular customer because other nearby hotels offer better value - Alameda and Soledad - one less and one more than Virreyes.

Don't miss their restaurant! Good food good service.

We have never stayed at this hotel, but have enjoyed drinks and appetizers in their sidewalk restaurant. Terrific Salsa Verde made with Cerrato pepper, and the red salsa is very good, too. We had their sample appetizers for two, which had both sauces, and we enjoyed it very much. Good margaritas, and attentive service. Good spot to watch the street scene from a more tranquil advantage.
