Hotel de la Soledad

Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

We had been in the UNESCO city of Morelia for a few days, when a friend of ours recommended that we go to the Hotel de la Soledad.

This 17th century building made of rose quarry stone is located in the Historical Downtown of Morelia, one block from the Cathedral.

Previously a private home, it was remodeled in 1752 and adapted to receive guests. At that time it was called Meson de Ulate and was the first official hotel of Valladolid, one of Morelia's first names.

Not knowing what to expect, it was enchanting to enter the gardens of this aristocratic hotel.

This is the oldest hotel in Morelia. In 1801, new owners changed the name to honor the Virgin of Solitude.

This was a lush and peaceful location for Happy Hour and we explored available tables to best enjoy the scenery.

Hotel rooms are available on the first and second floors

Hotel de la Soledad also has a restaurant along with hotel rooms and suites. We chose the garden area to order our beverages. As the late afternoon turned to dusk, the twinkly lights wrapped around the palm trees began to sparkle.

It truly was bewitching.

Passing a pleasant few hours

We are sharing a Chilean Cabernet and our friend is having a local Mexican beer, Pacifico.

We sat and enjoyed each other's company and conversation until after the sun set.

Such a pleasant way to pass a few hours.

Afterwards, we walked around the historical section of the city, and enjoyed the Cathedral all lit up!


Our bill

Our bottle of Cabernet was approximately $20USD. Each bottle of Pacifico beer is about $2USD.

At these prices, you can surely enjoy the evening here.

If you are ever in Morelia, this is truly a place to put on your list to visit. It has a completely different ambiance than any of the rooftop bars and restauurants - and they are both great venues to enjoy what the city has to offer!
