    The location of the hotel is great, we where told about the noise on the front rooms so we asked for an internal room, it is just as noisy, just different kind of noise, the room gives into the cube of the hotel with the reception on the first floor, so all night you hear the reception noises, like phone...

    My wife and I recently joined a group of archaeology buffs on a tour of Oaxaca City and the valley, during the Day of the Dead festivities. We were booked into the Hotel Gala as part of this tour. The good news about this hotel is that it is located on the edge of the zocalo, convenient to many fine... More

    We stayed at his hotel as it was recommended by our driver Adelino Olea,[--] who took us to Oaxaca City from Huatulco; we asked him to suggest a moderately priced hotel, on the Zocalo, town square of the City. Yes, I will warn you it is noisy at night, because your are right where we wanted to be-on the Zocalo,... More

    Source of noise was from inside of the hotel. Windows open to internal halls and every conversation (or activity), even in other rooms, can be heard loud and clear. At least ceiling fan was quiet. The location next to zocalo is very convenient and the price of the room was right. Some rooms are VERY small. I asked to change... More

    This hotel probably should be avoided. The rooms are noisy and none of our windows opened out onto the street. Instead, they opened into the hallway. We only picked it because it was near the center of town.

    We stayed three nights at the Gala after fleeing from Hotel Mariposa. Small doesn't begin to describe the rooms. You have to step outside to change your mind. Actually, I couldn't believe they crammed a bathroom into a closet. Had to damn near sit sideways on the toilet. That said, the value and location are excellent. Good fair price, clean... More
