Walking into La Quinta Real was like taking a step back in time. The 16th century convent has four beautiful courtyards each with its own unique feel. Along the walls are original fragments of frescos that take you back to old time Mexico. The rooms have high ceilings and are reasonably spacious. The staff is friendly and courteous, and the...

Just returned from a week's stay at Quinta Real. What a lovely spot! Its not all "shining and new", it has CHARACTER! which is way better, in my opinion. Its a few hundred years old and used to be a convent. The building is stunningly gorgeous inside with lots of hidden courtyards and corners to explore. The pool area was... More

500+ year old convent converted into a Luxury hotel in the center of Oaxaca's Historico Centro, a stay you will never forget. Relax by the interior courtyard pool. Enjoy the delicious, regional breakfast buffet. Watch closely at 7pm each evening for the monks lighting candles in the arched corridors -- be alert because the are quick then gone. If you... More

I would recommend a stay at Quinta Real for the charming atmosphere of this hotel. The rooms themselves are very basic and a bit worn, but the gardens in this hotel and the building itself are magical and more than make up for any shortfall in the rooms. Our room had a lovely window seat looking out onto the street,... More

Very good location, two blocks from Santo Domingo church, which is a beautiful church and three blocks from the “Zocalo”. The hotel is a Catholic convent from XVII Century, very well maintained and conserved, with a big area of garden with lots of flowers, very nice. Staff helpful and kind.

Our group made a special side trip to the Quinta Real for a meal on the veranda around the Jardin de Naranjos. We enjoyed they relaxing atmosphere and good food. The wait staff tolerated us rearranging their tables to allow us to all sit at one large table. The food was excellent and the service was good without being intrusive.... More

A truly spectacular hotel in the heart of Oaxaca. Everything is top notch - great rooms, beautiful grounds, excellent restaurant, professional service, etc. Hotel is an architectural gem. Location is dead center oexactly where you want to be. If you can afford it don't hesitate.

This hotel has the potential to be amazing but is not there yet. The location is fabulous and the courtyards and swimming pool are hugely attractive with beautifully nurtured flowers and gardens. Rooms are colonial in style and attractive and, as others have mentioned, the bathrooms are clean and functional but badly need an upgrade. We found the service to... More

We stayed for 3 nights in February 2015. The hotel is in a very convenient location and the courtyard gardens, setting and rooms are attractive. However the level of luxury is by no means as impressive as some of the staff appear to think. In particular, the front desk member of staff who checked us in (unlike most of his... More

While we did not stay at this beautiful and historic hotel, we had drinks just about every day in the hotel's relaxing and inviting patio, a real oasis full of tropical trees and flowering plants. The staff was courteous, quiet, and accommodating. The only problem was that the hotel's pool bar was closed every time we went. I would imagine... More
