Posada Don Mario for me was a relaxing retreat at an affordable price. I found the staff wonderfully helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable. I had a room which had no cross ventilation and which had a ceiling that was the roof of the building so it did great quite hot. But I could have asked for another room and... More

This guest house is in a great location, it's in a quiet and safe area, but easily walkable to the zocalo, great restaurants and bars. The staff are all super friendly and helpful, particular Thomas. He even helped me load my Telcel sim since I didn't speak a lot of spanish. The staff will help you book tours as well... More

I had a room on the first floor, overlooking the courtyard with a shared bath. Although I requested a single room, I was given a room with 3 beds for the price of a single room. The room was plenty large, had a ceiling fan, and earplugs kept the late night noise out. The shared bathroom was large but it... More

This place was recommended by friends in the non-profit world in Oaxaca. Excellent location: close to the zocalo but far enough away for it to be quieter. Norma and her staff are very friendly and helpful. She offers a personal, caring touch. Rooms are small and simple, as you would expect for the price. But they were fine for me... More

This place has a lovely rooftop balcony and courtyard looking east over the city, and the blackboard welcoming guests by name and country is a nice touch (it certainly helped us to get talking to people at breakfast). A lot of thought has gone into the decor too. On the downside, we found the rooms very warm even with the... More

We stayed only one night, as my boyfriend (1,90m) was not able to stand upright in the room. Even I kept hitting my head in the bathroom. Plus, you couldn´t really close the window. The bed was very small and squeaky, and it was hard to even turn in the room. The location seemed fine though and the court sure... More

I stayed at Posada Don Mario as a fallback option, but ended up loving the place and staff. The posada has a small courtyard as its main public space and where the complementary breakfast is served. There are wonderful balconies on the second and third floors. The WiFi worked only on the first and second floors, but the view of... More

Very cute, lots of character, nice courtyard area, pretty views from the terrace. Unfortunately, despite emailing back and forth with the owner about questions, when I arrived they didn’t seem to have enough information. They couldn’t find my reservation at first (a panicked moment for me during high season) and then said they couldn’t do laundry (despite the fact that... More

i was in posada don mario in august and, although i understand it costs less than most hotels in the area, i wouldn't recommend it. most rooms are stuffy because they don't have real windows - they open to the hallway. the fans are not very efficient, so it is very hot in the summer. it was clean, but be...

We were in Oxaca in August for three days and I can say that we were pleasingly surprised by the hepfulness and kidness of the girls running this Posada, who were always ready to give us all information we needed. Rooms were cleaned and neat (and this is very important for me!!), colourful and very nice. The common area is... More
