I stayed here for four nights on my first trip to Oaxaca. A nice 10 minute walk past several small parks and you reach the cities main square and market area. So well located. Safe and secure accommodation. Helpful staff and attached restaurant. Several tours and laundry can be arranged here. The WiFi was free. The room had a very... More

A family-run business that is very welcoming and has a lot of repeat visitors. The central court yard is very pretty, with lots of vegetation and birds. The rooms are functional and clean. The breakfasts are excellent value and quality. Although the wifi is not very good in the hotel, the neighbouring coffee shops have great wifi and superb coffee...especially... More

I can confirm the general descriptions by other users, nice location, in walking distance to the city center, nice tropical garden and also very kind and attentive staff. However, I was somewhat disappointed about the condition of the shared bathrooms. Yes, at time of booking I was aware that shared bathrooms always have some potential for surprise. However, every hotel... More

The rooftop patio is a lovely spot to gather. There are even some hammocks to read or nap in. There is a large English library to borrow or trade books. The rooms were small, and the bathroom floor very slick when wet. There was no screen for the bathroom window, and the screen only came to within one inch of... More

Casa Arnel has very small inexpensive rooms with shared bath and I assume nicer private rooms. It is in the Jalatlaco colonia of Oaxaca, a nice colonia near the centro section of town, about a 15-20 minute walk from the Zocalo. No one showed me around the place so I did not realize that there was a rooftop terrace until... More

Not a bad hotel, rooms are basic bit clean. Is a long walk to the Zocola and the centre of town. All extras are charged, we broke a cup and were looking for 150 pesos to replace it. Eventually we paid 45 pesos but it left a bad taste about the entire hotel.

We stayed at this hotel as part of an Intrepid tour to Mexico. We had a double room on the first floor. The rooms were quite small and not the cleanest. The bathroom was decently sized and water pressure was ok, but not clean. The room had a portable fan which gave some relief from the stuffiness in the room.... More

My boyfriend and me stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. At first they seemed quite friendly, but after some time you could notice everything was focussed on money. Everything you asked for, you had to pay. Our last day, we had to put our luggage in the storage room. We had a night bus to our next destination. We... More

By Mexican standards this was amazing. Family-run place with fan rooms, comfy beds, powerful showers (with hot water), nice social areas, on-site library, hammocks for use in shady area and beers for sale. Close enough to the town centre to walk in.

My family and I stayed in this hotel during a recent visit to Oaxaca, and had an incredible time. The setting itself is beautiful - open courtyard with vibrant trees and plants. While the accommodations are modest, this was perfectly fine, as you shouldn't be spending much time in your room anyway while visiting this wonderful city! There are great... More
