I really like this hotel. It's one of my favourites on this trip so far. Still basic but with plenty of charm and friendly staff . The courtyard is very attractive . Our room had an air conditioner and the bathroom even had had a hairdryer . Easy walk to the main square and restaurants .

Courtyard is appealing (although personally I don't like birds in cages and there was a lot of them), library was good. Room fine, we had a window, fan could just about keep up with weather, next time I would probably pay a little more to stay somewhere with aircon. Bathroom ok, shower cold, but weather was hot so ok by... More

I have visited Oaxaca City several times in the past decade, and I have always stayed at Casa Arnel. The rooms are small but pleasant. The interior courtyard is green and tranquil. I like the rooftop patio or terrace. Prices are reasonable.

This place is cute like the town and is walking distance to most places so good location. Room is clean and tidy but the showers are terrible No water pressure, had to run it for 10 mins to even get hot water. The roof terrace is a lovely spot to relax.

Lovely spot, handy to local restaurants and only a short walk from the centre of town. Very clean and tidy rooms with an awesome central garden and sunny roof terrace area. The showers were a little hit and miss with ours only running scalding hot yet others only cold and some just a dribble. Beds tending towards the firm end... More

We spent three nights at Casa Arnel (2 then 1). Excellent WiFi, good showers, comfortable beds, quiet nights. The library is excellent and the courtyard beautiful. Breakfast was good when it arrived (if small) but the service was very slow (despite saying that breakfast was from 7am the staff didn't seem to arrive until 7.30am). Sn Arnel was very welcoming...

My introduction to Oaxaca was from the Arnel years ago, and I have since stayed there with my sons, as it is conveniently located a few blocks from the bus station where one connects with Pto. Escondido and Chiapas. I got caught in the whiplash of a hurricane coming into the city once and had to put up at the... More

We spent 8 nights in Casa Arnel, changing rooms one time because we went away for afew day in the middle of our stay..OUr rooms were small and the beds really hard. The first room had a pretty lousy shower and it got the whole bathroom wet, but the second room was much better. I would recommend getting a room... More

The only reason I've given it 4 rather than 5 is for the water pressure in the shower. I never really got more than a trickle. Otherwise the rooms were great. Comfortable beds, good wifi signal and friendly staff. It really felt like a family hotel. Although the downside of that was that the family actually does live here so... More

Budget hotel, pretty, lush garden, family run. That said, you have to keep on them to have things up to standard. Dead cockroach in my room (at least it was dead) Wifi almost non-existent.Noisy at times. Bathroom basic -- leaky shower head, no mat on floor, water went everywhere. Lovely view from the roof, a good place to have a... More
