While this hotel tries to bill itself as being close to the zocalo area, its actually on the edge of the central business district. That said the rooms are comfortable and clean and air conditioned! The hot water didn't work during my stay, but I've found that the functionality of hot water in bathrooms can be questionable when traveling in... More

Oaxaca is a fantastic city, and this hotel is in a great part of town. While a bit away from the main market, it is very tranquil here. Plus you get a huge room, great buffet breakfast, and a pool, which I enjoyed after those hot days walking all over town. The manager is very attentive, and I think you... More

Best HIE I have ever stayed in. Location couldn't have been better. Staff friendly and courteous. Manager on top of everything greeting us everyday and making sure everything was ok. Great breakfast, puts U.S. HIE to shame. Wait staff cleared plates quickly and were very efficient. Clientele was a mix of business and vacation. Cabs were right outside and hotel... More

We stayed here overnight, catching a plane the next morning to Huatulco. The hotel staff were very friendly, the room was large and clean, with a great shower in the bathroom. We thought the breakfast was generous. Overall, one of our better experiences at a Holiday Inn Express. It is not romantic, or Old Huatulco, but it was a pleasant,... More

I love Oaxaca! To be able to stay in a beautiful place like this… And so very near the town square… Is fantastic! It is neat and clean and the people working at the front desk are absolutely fantastic as well… you will love it here… it is everything that you expect from a Holiday Inn. There are no surprises...

Holiday Inn is a known quantity. Everything works, nothing is extraordinary. I have been coming to Oaxaca for years and this is the first time I stay in a trans-national chain. I was not disappointed. The hotel is perfectly located. It doesn't have a restaurant (breakfast is served, and that's it--the coffee is mediocre), but in Oaxaca a hotel restaurant... More

This hotel is much better in terms of rooms and ambience than the average Holiday Inn Express. We had a nice room, a King Bed Junior Suite which had an outdoor terrace that overlooked the pool. It was quite expensive for Mexico but was worth it. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk to the Zocalo but within 7 or... More
