We stayed at Los Pilares from June 14-19. We had been in Huatulco for 5 days & took a flight to Oaxaca via Aerotucan on a 12 seat Cessna. I have some flying anxiety but it was a clear day without strong winds & it went beautifully. It was a quiet time at the hotel, so we were able to... More

Aside from the slightly surly, unhelpful and quite scruffily dressed receptionist, and the jacuzzi that took over an hour to heat up, we found this charming little hotel ideal for its price, location and comforts. I felt quite the dandy strolling around my room in the complimentary robe, and could have rolled over in my sleep eight or nine times... More

This place is gorgeous - just outside the city center (maybe a 7 minute walk) which was perfect for us. The place smells incredible (flowers and candles everywhere) and is super clean and beautiful. We were greeted by the nicest staff and had our choice of two available rooms. The rooms were both quite large and beds were big/comfy. Free... More

The hotel is well kept and a beautiful setting with lots of fresh flowers. It is a short walk from the central square and church of Santo Domingo but far enough to give a bit of respite from the chaos of the center of town. However, all rooms open into a central courtyard, meaning that privacy is a bit limited... More

The Los Pilares is a small (15 rooms) hotel that doesn't look like much from the outside and the immdiate neighborhood looks even worse. However, inside, the Los Pilares is done very nicely. About half the rooms, reception and a lounge and "dinner only" area are on the ground floor, arranged in a courtyard fashion. The rest of the guest... More

Lovely hotel that caters mainly to Mexicans. We were the only Americans staying here as far as I could tell, but I liked that. It does help to know some Spanish though. Rooms were nice, nothing extravagant but better than basic. My sister was bothered by the light shining in from the inner courtyard, and I thought the courtyard could... More

We chose this hotel from what we read on TripAdvisor and it surpassed our expectations. The Decor is gorgeous, the restaurant is really good. The Breakfasts are delicious. It is only a small hotel so you would need to book ahead. The upstairs rooms are best. What made it extra special was the staff. They are all so genuinely friendly... More

Wonderful staff, great aromas of flowers in courtyard, and beautiful colonial rooms. A quiet and classy property. Be aware that it's about 10 blocks from the Zocolo. It's a pleasant walk however. If you're wanting to book a tour to Mitla or Monte Albans or wherever, don't book through the hotel front desk. We took their tour to Mitla, and... More
