Although the owners and personable enough, the "hotel" lacks the anonymity of a hotel, with the ability to come and go as your please, eat breakfast when you choose, etc. it was very much like staying in someone's home, and we didn't have the feeling that they were overly keen on having "guests". If you like a quirky B&B atmosphere,... More

To stay here is a transforming experience. All five rooms are a work of art filled with ceramics,drawings, photos, lithographs,textiles, masks etc from the region and literally all over the world. The collection is so well put together and so armonious the pieces belong together even if one is from Canada and the next one from Michoacan. The patio has... More

We stayed here for 1 night but wished it could have been longer. Didier is a true Renaissance man and is willing to share his knowledge and enthusiasm for a wide range of disparate interests. His many collections range from corkscrews to balance beams through to hi-fi equipment. There are only 5 rooms but each one is unique and contains... More

I've stayed at the Casa de la Real Aduana twice, most recently for Dia de los Muertos 2014. Patzcuaro is a beautiful town, but this small hotel is a destination on its own.
