I stayed at the Baden-Powell apartments in July 2008 and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I loved this centrally located, quiet, roomy, modern, and clean apartment. The owners, Eugenio and Gabriel Cortes, are friendly, responsive, and meticulous about every detail, ensuring that your stay is comfortable and problem free. The furniture was clearly chosen with great care, and I appreciated the amenities like the filtered water and cable TV. The kitchen has every appliance you could need and is stocked with plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. All you need to do is bring home your groceries from the Republica or Independencia market! My favorite part of the apartment was the upstairs terrace, which is a tranquil respite from the city's activity.
From the location of these apartments, you can easily walk to any of Morelia's numerous restaurants, shops, or attractions. I adore the city because it is still largely undiscovered by Americans, and there is a free cultural event nearly every day. While you're staying at the Baden-Powell apartments you should definitely consider taking Spanish classes at Gabriel and Eugenio's language school, which is just around the corner. I have studied at two other language schools in Mexico and Baden-Powell is by far the best. In fact, I liked it so much I went twice. The school is professionally run, the teachers are well trained, and the administration makes sure you are in a class appropriate to your level. Above all, the whole staff is friendly--I enjoyed returning to the school and feeling known.
