We stayed at Posada De Chencho over Dia De Los Muertos and found it to be a great place to stay. It is located a bit south from the town center, but was easy enough to walk back and forth to (~15 minutes) or grab one of the omnipresent taxis to. The hotel owner and staff were very helpful in...

Posada de Chencho isn't just a guesthouse/posada. It's a place where excellent, helpful service and kind gestures are happily dispensed, where help is quickly forthcoming in assisting with your logistics to/from the hotel, where the wonderful breakfast (included in the price) is incredibly generous and made with tender loving care. Chencho himself, in his early 90s, has a razor sharp... More

How can you not love Chencho and his family who answer questions readily, give advice about both free and important places not to miss, and cook the most delicious authentic Oaxacan breakfasts you could want. It is a safe, quiet area that is walking distance to the zocalo. Comfortable and spacious rooms where even 4 people can spread out. Full... More

If you like comfy rooms looking out onto a courtyard paradise of guava trees and birds then you'll adore this place. Fabulous Oaxacan breakfasts (all 5 days a different dish), caring staff (insisted on us taking their sombreros with us on hot days) and tremendously good value. Oh, and for me the perfect walking distance to the Zocalo (just far... More

After many years' absence, we returned to Oaxaca in November 2011, staying nearly 3 weeks at Posada de Chencho. We still love it! Located in a safe, quiet, working-middle class neighborhood, an interesting 12-15 minute walk to the zocalo, the posada has comfortable rooms, great beds/pillows, full sized, fluffy bath towels, good room fans, a lovely garden (dinner plate sized...

I was at the Posada del Chencho for 13 nights in August. My room, # 23, was very pretty and kept spotlessly clean. The staff - all members of the family - were always friendly. I was able to negotiate a reduced rate. The owner is a true gentleman who happens to speak perfect English. Breakfast, included in the room... More

My Mom and I stayed at Chencho's in July 2006, and we were both delighted with its charm. The owner and his staff were happy to answer any questions, arrange side trips, and generally make sure our stay was an enjoyable one. About half of the staff knew English. The rooms are painted with interesting colors and have en suite... More

I traveled alone to Mexico; first time there, first time traveling alone. I don't speak Spanish. Chencho's place was recommended to me by an American woman. I'd recommend Posada de Chencho to anyone. The breakfasts were always a delicious suprise, with nice Mexican music and friendly service in a very comfortable dining area. Chencho is a wonderful host; he speaks... More

We have stayed at Posada de Chencho several times over the past seven or eight years and have always enjoyed the experience. I disagree with the other reviewer's analysis of the neighborhood--I have never found it scary and have often walked "home" from the zocalo alone at night even though I am a petite female. It is simply a working... More
