Whenever I visit Oaxaca I always stay at the Posada Catarina. I usually give it four stars since there is no AC only a fan, but the maids work so hard that it deserves the extra star. I paid about $45 for a king size bed for my wife and myself. Centrally located, nice staff, highly recommend.

My wife and I go to Oaxaca at least once a year for the past ten years. We have always been happy with the Posada Catarina. Yes it is not a 5 star hotel, but the location and the staff is always friendly and take good care of us. The price of the rooms are quite reasonable. A king size... More

The service her was awful. My friend and I were both sick in bed (me with a headcold, my friend with a digestive problem), and when we called for a roll of toilet paper, the attendant flat out refused. He said the hotel has a one roll of paper per room per day policy, and apparently we had already gone... More

We stayed a total of four nights at Catarina which is located very near the noisey markets, both artisan and other. The night time desk clerk, Julio, was uniformly indifferent and rude to the simplest requests such as replacing the large water bottle on the dispensing machine replying that there was none and that it was "an optional service of...

A good friend who travels to Oaxaca often told me about the Posada Catarina and a while later I drove down with two friends and we checked into another hotel very near the Zocalo which really was not wonderful. Strolling about the next day we passed the Catarina and we went in to check it out and promptly returned to... More

In July of 2005, I had the pleasure of discovering Posada Catarina--what a great bargain! The staff, especiallly Carlos and Cesar welcome you as if you were a member of their family and treat you royally. It is clean, quiet and located near three markets and a skip and a jump from the zocalo. You are allowed one hour of... More
