Mexico Cooks !: Arts and Crafts

Posted November 25, 2017

Creative, generous, and kind, Rose Calderone-occasionally of Chicago, currently of Morelia-is the founding mother at La Casona Rosa, her unique small hotel located at Galeana # 274, Historical Center, Morelia, Michoacán. If you're going to Morelia, it's the place to stay for comfort, conversation, art, and impeccable information about all that central Michoacan has to offer.

Just so you know : I am proud to say that Rose Calderone is my friend. You know, then, that something that Mexico Cooks! could say about her and her charming Morelia inn comes with a positive positive bias. On the other hand, I can not think of a single person who has stayed at La Casona Rosa who came away from anything other than her friend and devoted client.

In one clear sentence, Rose makes her philosophy as a host completely transparent.

Open the street door to La Casona Rosa and the long, lovely, flower-filled private patio stretches to welcome you. names La Casona Rosa the number one small hotel in Morelia and lists twenty-two reviews (and counting!) from completely satisfied customers. What they have to say says louder than any. One reviewer summed it up perfectly: "An Italian heart running to Mexican home: there's no better combination."

The guest room at La Casona. If you'd like to have a traditional and delicious Mexican meal cooked for you, just ask on-site manager María Armenta to prepare either breakfast or food (Mexico's main meal of the day). The price is always fair and the food is out of this world.

The Colonial Suite's en-suite bathroom. It's not huge, but it has all the things you need for your stay: a great shower, thick, thirsty towels, a hair dryer, and Michoacan-style homey charm. I took the towels down from the shelves so you could see for yourself just how wonderful they are!

The Colonial Suite's dining / conference table. Everything you see in the photograph-from the chairs to the candles and from the chest of drawers to the glorious clay pumpkins-is a product of one or another Michoacán artisan. Rose knows all the artisans and if you like, she'll make sure you know them, too.

Rose's staff at La Casona Rosa is special as Rose herself is. Another Tripadvisor review (February 2011) reads: "Morelia is a peaceful, fascinating destination, and Casona Rosa is clean and convenient, and decorated in a charming Mexican manner. She is also very friendly and helpful, and she is very friendly and helpful, and she is very friendly and helpful. access to a wide variety of local services, including Jesus, the well informed, courteous and reliable taxi / limousine operator.

If you're visiting Morelia as a family, the ground-floor Patzcuaro Suite could be ideal. The suite sleeps four or even five, and the Casona also offers a crib if you're traveling with a baby or toddler.

The second room in the Pátzcuaro Suite offers twin beds that can be made up of one king-size bed. If you are traveling with children, this suite is equipped with games and other pasttimes for them.

The Rose Suite, where the reviewer quoted below stayed. This suite includes a small kitchen for guests' use, a private bathroom, and its own patio.

Another reviewer wrote at length on Tripadvisor: "We arrived in Morelia with backpacks and no accommodation booked. It is located in the heart of the city, within walking distance of all the great sites, cathedral, museums, food options and drinking spots, this place is a total gem.Maria the host is a complete delight, graceful, friendly and welcoming, fluent in Spanish and English and a mine of information about Morelia.There are several sleeping options in this lovely old house.The rooms are very spacious, beautifully decorated and with comfortable beds, an excellent kitchen, beautiful lounge and dining area, wonderful courtyard and a second formal dining room.We had two dinner parties with other guests in our 7 day stay! also a self-c ontained apartment at the back of the property with two bedrooms, mini rustic kitchen, bathroom and its own courtyard with sun and shade; this is where we stayed. Great for short and long stays. If you are in Morelia and you want charm, comfort, excellent location, good value for money and wonderful hosts then Casa Rosa is the perfect choice.

In the fully equipped main kitchen- It is a very nice place to stay in the area. The rooms are very clean and the bed is very comfortable.


The guests' living room. Just off the street on the left is the stairway to the lovely guest bedrooms on La Casona's second floor. In addition to the already mentioned amenities at La Casona, guests have access to free long distance calls either within Mexico or to the United States. -an inn-offers much more than

shelter The plaque on the side of the door reads, "Welcome, my house is your house." (Welcome, my house is your house). When you call for reservations, please make sure you tell them that Mexico Cooks! sent you. There is no kickback, of course, but I know that the fabulous Rose and her staff of magicians would be tickled to hear that I recommended them.
