Beautiful but noisy. Just don't stay in suite 103

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 23, 2009

This hotel's service, amenities, etc are without question - top notch. It's interior looks like a cathedral, the staff is friendly (even the maids - they'll talk to you all day!) But, if you are going to Morelia and have been reviewing hotels, you have undoubtedly read that the Virrey Mendoza is loud due to the "traffic and constant honking". It's only half true - there's a larger problem, and it's with the best room in the hotel - room 103.

Room 103 has a balcony that opens up facing down Ave. Madero with a view of the cathedral and street side cafes. I'll upload a photo of the location as well as the view. It is so beautiful that almost ALL of your picture taking could be done from this one location! The balcony wraps around the building for a view down the beautiful street Guillermo Preito. Here's the deal about the noise. Traffic - yes, but the traffic is almost hypnotic. There is some honking, but not like what I've read other reviewers say on the net. The traffic congestion also dies down around 11p - midnight on weekdays and weekends. The traffic I can deal with. The people - yes, there is an overall "crowd" noise, but it too is hypnotic. Basically, if you can or do sleep with the TV on, you can sleep through the traffic and people.

But, here is what I defy ANYONE to sleep through - the club on the top floor of "La Casa del Portal". It's on the roof, across the street, and is only covered by a plastic party tent. The noise is so loud that one night my eyes were tearing up because I could not sleep. The club seems to finally close at 3am. The bass is so loud you feel the "thump thump thump" in your chest (so ear plugs may not help). There's nothing you can do about it. If you are a late night person, then the Virrey Mendoza will be perfect for you.

My advice: If you must stay at the mendoza, request a room as far from the street as possible. If you would rather sacrifice sleep for beauty, Suite 103 is THE BEST ROOM. If you want none of this, the solution is simple - you only need to find a hotel a couple of blocks away from the Mendoza - like one in front of the cathedral. You'll be fine. And the noise from the cathedral church bells, from the Mendoza, is not as big of a deal as others make it to be.

Unique Quality: has a very weak, but working wireless internet, the cafe is awesome because of the view, the interior is top notch.
