We weren't sure about staying so far from the Zocalo at first (a good 15 min by foot) but then we discovered lots of hidden treasures in the Jalatlaco neighborhood and love it..... The cobblestone streets, cafes serving fabulous coffee, a building painted in a Dia de los Muertos theme and a quaint old church. We also enjoyed eating local,... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Encanto Jalatlaco in the cobblestoned neighborhood just to the east of the Centro Historico. After the busyness of the Zocalo and the pedestrian-only Alacala, with its many, many shops, and after a full day of fascinating small museums and/or trips to outlying areas, it was a joy to retire to the calm, immaculate...

We have traveled throughout Mexico for forty plus years and we agree with all of the six previous reviews except that Encanto is "quiet". As we lay here trying to sleep in the Carolina room at 10:00pm before awakening at five am for a flight home we are being "serenaded" by a neighbor's dog. This happened our first night until... More

This three-room B&B was wonderful. We had the "Carolina" room, which is large, comfortable, and quiet. For seven days we had a different Mexican breakfast every morning, with a beautifully set (also different daily) table. The Chela (spelling?), the owner, is extremely helpful with everything. The B&B is about a 15 minute walk from the Zocolo and in a very... More

I wrote a lot about this spot in my review for La Casa de mis Recuerdos, the "parent" property for the several owned by this family. My husband and I stayed here while my mother stayed at Mis Recuerdos - it's just around the corner - and hope to stay again and again and again. You CANNOT go wrong staying... More

This charming B&B is small, cozy, and refreshing, compared to bigger places you can stay in the city center. It's a bit further away (by a few blocks) but is very quiet and once you close the wooden street door, you feel miles away. Food and hospitality arre excellent, too. Pretty patio and comfortable sitting room near the dining room,... More

We have stayed at Encanto Jalatlaco many times with family and friends and will continue to do so. This is a wonderful way to experience life in Oaxaca in comfortable and beautiful surroundings. Authentic Oaxacan breakfasts are served in a beautiful setting each day. William and Nora are very welcoming and are ready to help with any information about the... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in Feb and enjoyed every minute. The house is very tastefully decorated and the room we stayed in the Carolina, was beautiful, bright and very quiet. And the bed was so comfortable! Nora our hostess/landlady was a fantastic hostess. Her traditional oaxacan breakfasts were works of art with different dishes each... More

I can’t say enough good things about Casa Jalatlaco. My husband and I stayed in this fabulous house for four nights. Maria (daughter to the owners) was fantastic. She and the other two ladies would have breakfast ready at the time we requested (hot chocolate, coffee, fresh squeezed juice, sweet bread and a main breakfast dish). The room we stayed... More
