We only had 4 nights here, and then had to move since they were full. But we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Las Golondrinas. Our room was huge, with closets and shelves that made it easy to move in and spread out. The hotel was quiet, with well-tended courtyards and gardens. Its in a good location, easy to walk anywhere.

We chose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and location. We upgraded to their more expensive option at 60$ a night. Our room was great although the mattress was super hard. The courtyard was lovely and inviting, and the outdoor breakfast area sweet with tasty food. The front desk people were all helpful and attentive. A funny small thing... More

We've just returned from a Mexican holiday which included one night at this hotel. It was our favourite of the several places we stayed. High-ceilinged room with comfortable bed and the freshest smelling sheets, lush growth at every turn, friendly front desk people, nice breakfast. We will stay there again most definitely.

I loved this little hotel in Oaxaca, bags of atmosphere and the staff happily and efficiently helped with a rather unusual request. One of the nicest little places I've ever stayed in - our room gave onto a little courtyard garden full of luxurious plants and flowers. If I ever go back to Oaxaca, I'll be staying there again.

This is the fourth time we have stayed at las Golondrinas. The room we got was quiet, did not front on the street. It was roomy and always spotless. Yes, there wasn't much decor, but we put out the treasures we were getting to take home. Really how important is wall decor? The bed was comfortable, the front desk helpful... More

Rooms with king size beds are very large, quiet, very clean and while the mattresses could be more comfortable, everything is in good condition. Bathrooms are basic but spotless - we had a problem with hot water in our room but the management was genuinely sorry when we informed them of this. Service is very friendly and efficient. The hotel... More

I stayed here during the day of the dead festival (plus a few days). I enjoyed my stay and would choose this hotel again for sure. Hospitality: very friendly and accommodating. Helpful suggestions as to how to go where, got me airport transportation, etc. Everything a hotel should be in this regard. Grounds and security: access is always locked, so... More

Went there for years but the rooms are getting stale without decoration, dark and lacking updating specially the showers. Price to value attraction is gone. The stinginess of the aged manager is getting worse, e.g. prohibited storing ONE bottle of beer in the central fridge, charging for leaving luggage and asking 50 % more for milk coffee compared to regular!...

I spent five nights here in April and would definitely recommend this small family hotel to other travellers looking for a peaceful place to stay in Oaxaca. The location is excellent, my room was spotlessly clean and very quiet, the breakfasts were delicious, and the three adjoining flower-filled courtyards are absolutely beautiful. However, the best thing about the hotel is... More

I stayed here on a working vacation in 1999 but would definitely love to return. Our room was very large, and even though it was right on the street next to the sidewalk it was still quiet. We had a giant glass wall and we could open the curtains and watch the people go by, or close it and have... More
