Hotel Azul is an ideal place to stay. The location is perfect - it is central to all the action but also a quiet refuge. The staff is friendly and accommodating and handled all of my needs. The property is beautiful and comfortable. I will definitely be back !

Hotel Azul is such a wonderful gem in the heart of old Oaxaca. It's absoloutely gorgeous, tastefully and stylishly designed. All the rooms are comfortable, spacious, and beautiful. The staff were terrific, and the food was great. Literally a minutes walk from the center of Oaxaca, where there are too many wonderful restaurants, boutique clothing shops, and precious art galleries... More

Absolutely perfect. We were hesitating between azul and casa oaxaca at first and we are so happy we picked hotel azul. Everything about it is way better and more sophisticated than casa oaxaca. Beautiful impeccable design, warm helpful and efficient staff, and great location (in the center but on a pretty quieter street than casa oaxaca). Staying at hotel azul... More

Really great service from staff - very helpful! Beautiful hotel patios, common areas, and outdoor dining areas, and very clean modern rooms. Very thin floors, so sound could be a problem, but didn't bother us. Great location so you can walk to all the central destinations. Definitely would stay here again and recommend to friends.

A reviewer notes, "One of the best hotels in Mexico…." Well that's kind, but a bit of a stretch. It's a nice hotel but hardly one of the best. Decor is minimal and tasteful. Hotel is situated within walking distance to most. Not so close but not so far either. Near many restaurants you might want to experience. Staff was... More

I planned my daughter's wedding reception at Hotel Azul in March 2015. All of our guests stayed in the 21 rooms and we had the best time! The hotel is simply special--modern, yet authentic Oaxacan design. Spacious rooms, lovely courtyards and roof deck, delicious food--and best of all, fantastic staff! The service and courteousness of everyone, from the front desk,... More

It is hard for me to find words to talk about how I feel about Hotel Azul but here goes nothing! The hotel itself is beautiful.
