We stayed for a full weekend, it’s a good option if you don’t have a car, and want to visit just downtown of Morelia. They just have around 16 parking spaces, if you are lucky you can get one, if you don’t, you have to pay for a safety parking lot, (a 5 min walk from the hotel), which for my opinion is expensive (around 250 pesos per night). About the room I got, it was small and the bathroom too, a great thing was the mattress, it was comfortable, pillows ok. It did not have A.C.

I was there only one night with out any big inconvenient, the rooms are very small, but it works very well to rest, the building is old but also is according with the around area, no place during the night for parking, they had not available places so I left my car outside, but no big issue, Price accordingly, Breakfast included good!

This place has pleasant exterior but ugly interior. We wondered why there were photoshoped pictures with drawn windows in the booking site. Now we know, that it had the reason - rooms have no windows. I'm lying. We had the window... in our toilet. What else can I tell you? It's noisy inside, linen is badly washed, breakfasts are poor, bathrooms have problems with rusty taps and hot water. Better find another place to stay.

Have high degree of trust in Tripadvisor so when I saw this place ranked at #5 in Morelia I thought it would be fine but boy was I wrong! My first instinct was to stay at the Virrey de Mendoza but I was seeing over $200.00 a night and didn't want to pay that. But, when me and my partner got to the Arancazu I realized we'd made a mistake ...but still I thought, well, just 3 nights in Morelia so we ought to be able to handle the cheap institutional look and dirty carpets. At $55.00 a night however the room was not a particularly good deal. After a long first day of touring around the city and experiencing nightlife to boot we repaired very late to our room for much needed rest but no rest for the weary here due to the uncomfortable bed (too short and I'm only 5'9"), sounds of slamming doors and voices from adjacent rooms all night, poor ventilation and then construction on a room below beginning at 8am. After breakfast we returned to the Aranzazu, packed up our things and moved to Virrey de Mendoza for the rest of our stay in Morelia (see also Virrey review). Our visit to Morelia was saved as we were very happy with the move!

Following the suggestion of another T/A member, I booked my room using the Sidestep booking agent. It did generate a very attractive rate for this city, which, for some reason, has very high hotel rates. The location was a block from the main drag between the city's center and the aqueduct and Santuario de Guadalupe (which was perfect for 12 December). The room, on balance, was comfortable and quiet -- probably more so than many of the more expensive places near the Cathedral. On the minus side, there was not a lot of charm in the place -- it appears to be a place that caters to business travelers and meetings. Also, there was a hefty charge for Internet use and I couldn't even figure out how to get it to work. The little groovy bar across the street has Wi-Fi (unrestricted) as do many other eating/drinking places, so it' was only a minor inconvenience for me.

Hotel Aranzazu in Morelia is one of a small Mexican chain. I booked through a travel website on and the price was great compared to their rack rates. The hotel is well located, a few blocks from the main squares/catheddral yet on a quieter street. A big market is just a block away and there are two other hotels next door with handsome restaurants. The Aranzazu was very clean, had a pleasant restaurant (although the breakfast prices were out of line) and a very nice lobby area. I was given Room 205 which was a kind of suite, with a large room with a table and a nice bedroom with 2 queen beds. The bathroom was very large, had a great tub and shower. It had large windows facing the inner patio but it was never noisy even with the windows open for fresh air. I really enjoyed my stay at the Aranzazu and highly recommend it.

Estuve en Morelia todo el mes de diciembre, y me encanto muy cerca de todos los sitios de verdadero interés, sus habitaciones limpias e impecables, son muy atentos me sentí como en casa los recomiendo ampliamente

El lugar esta muy cerca del centro histórico, es un buen hotel para dormir y recorrer la ciudad a pie, ya que tiene una buena ubicación. Ofrecen un desayuno/buffet de 7-11am (café, jugo de naranja, fruta, chilaquiles, huevos, etc). Los empleados son muy amables y las instalaciones están limpias.

Según yo este es un hotel hace poco remodelado, pero no parece. La atención del personal muy buena pero el lugar deja mucho que desear por el costo. Si pagas un hotel barato sabes lo que te puedes encontrar, pero si el costo es parecido a hoteles que manejan una calidad estándar, esperas por lo menos encontrar una habitación limpia. Ubicación excelente, cuenta con estacionamiento. La comida no la probé a pesar de ser tan recomendado por qué el lugar se veía sucio. Lo recomiendo... no, pueden encontrar hoteles mucho mejores por el mismo precio.

Es un hotel viejo y en un mal estado aunque el precio sugiere que es parecido a los de negocios de calidad de la zona. Definitivamente puedes encontrar otra mejor opción pagando lo mismo. Las habitaciones diminutas con un baño y edificio de hace 30 años. Muy incomodas. La tarjeta en la puerta no sirve. Nos toco con un grupo de jóvenes que corrían, bailaban y comían pizza hasta la madrugada en todos los pasillos sin que nadie hiciera nada. El empleado de la noche aunque muy amable se veia sobrepasado por la situación ya que era el unico al momento. Lo único que se recomienda es su desayuno ya que esta bastante rico. Definitivamente es un hotel de 3 estrellas cuando mucho pero con un precio de 4. No recomendable para nada.
