We stayed here over winter break in February with a group of high school students. We had a room with a lovely view of Oaxaca. The room was comfortable--nothing fancy. We ate breakfast there every morning and found the breakfast delicious. We did have one dinner there, however, and it was pretty tasteless. Our first night, we arrived late (about... More

This hotel from the front and reception area looks great but once you realise that the walls and doors are paper thin, you get over it quickly. I could hear kids running around pass midnight screaming up and down the corridor and even the text message noises of incoming texts from people in the next room. Breakfast was okay buffet... More

This is an average hotel. The service from the front desk was very good, perhaps the only really good thing I can say about the hotel. The food at the restaurant is... not memorable, at all. The rooms are somewhat run down, but that's not necessarily a bad thing in Oaxaca. I stayed here because the people that invited me,... More

This hotel was perfect after a day of travelling by bus. Rooms are very nice and spacious, breakfast is delicious and the best part is that the view from both the room and the restaurant is breathtaking both during the day and at night. Only problem is that the hotel is quite cut off from the town centre therefore getting... More

The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff were friendly. As I have limited Spanish I was grateful for having front desk staff who spoke English. Although there is a main road out the front, because I had a rear room I spent a very restful night. Breakfast was comprehensive and good value. Best of all, there... More

This is an older hotel located on a hillside on one of the main roads in and out of town - about a 10 minute taxi ride to the Zocolo. We stayed two nights over the Christmas holidays which is high season so the ONLY room available was a room w/no air-conditioning at a premium price on the backside of... More

Just ten minutes walk from the cathedral, but at the same time secluded in a very quite area and with a nice garden around the different buildings. The rooms were spacious, and has a nace balcony overlooking the garden. Such a shame that there were no chairs - not on the balcony and not in the room. There were a... More

I stayed there for one week, it's not a 4 stars hotel, but for the price is worth the stay. Be careful of noisy rooms. Internet doesnt work in the rooms. Breakfast are rather poor. Bit far away from downtown. Pretty clean with cozy rooms.
