For a very warm personal introduction to Oaxaca, stay with Irma, Alejandro & Panchita at Casa Panchita. A beautiful private home like setting focused around a large flower filled courtyard. Meet other very interesting guests over breakfast or at happy hour, with Alejsndro's famous margaritas! Irma & Alejandro can refer you to wonderful tour guides and suggest some off the... More

Nicest host, most homey feel I've ever experienced at a B and B. Hands down this is the best place to stay in Oaxaca! Irma and Alejandro make you feel right at home, there is an honor bar with beers and soda. It really feels like home here. I will definitely stay again.

Six lovely rooms around a central courtyard offer a quiet oasis from the bustling city of Oaxaca. Within walking distance to everything the city has to offer. The gracious owners provide for your needs from breakfast to transportation arrangements. I will stay here again on my next trip to Oaxaca.

Loved Casa Panchita's beautifully decorated rooms, central gardens, very helpful and friendly host and delicious breakfast...their beautiful tablecloths and bedspreads were woven in this very same neighborhood of Xochimilco!

Beautiful B&B furnished with lots of local crafts, about a 10 minute walk to the Zocolo. Very comfortable rooms, beautiful swimming pool, fabulous and authentic Mexican breakfasts with fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee, fresh breads, home-made granola (best ever), and superb eggs with tortillas and sauces, prepared in a wide variety of ways by Dona Panchita, who turned...

the owners are very friendly, the rooms very nice and very clean. It is located in a very nice neighborhood, close to the center but far enough as not to hear the noise of the cars. no complaints, definitely going back to this place. the price is very affordable, great experience!!

Located in a great middle class neighborhood walking distance from the Zocalo, Panchita, her daughter, Irma, and her husband, Alejandro, have created a slice of heaven. We stayed for a week - using it as a daily base of operation. Rooms were very comfortable, grounds are lovely, service stellar, and food fantastic and as others mentioned you felt like family....

Our stay at Casa Panchita was to say the least the best experience we have ever had at any B&B. The outstanding attention and care from Irma, Alejandro and Panchita was way above the norm. Alejandro drove us one evening to a restaurant after we expressed interest in trying certain Oaxacan cuisines. We were not disappointed, it was great. Their... More

One of the nicest and most relaxing places we've stayed. We drove from Tucson and were very pleased to find that we could park our car off the street. Our host & hostess Irma and Alejandro were prefect. Excellent breakfasts of fresh fruit, home made granola, eggs to order and other options. Light suppers prepared once or twice a week.... More

Casa Panchita is family-owned and run. Guests are treated like family: if you have a question, or a problem, the proprietors (Irma and Alejandro) will do their best to help you. They are very knowledgeable about folk art in the vicinity, and will help you find your way to individual artists, if you are interested. The breakfast is fresh and... More
