A short walk from the bus station (even with many heavy backpacks), Oaxaca is much smaller than Mexico City! We could walk everywhere. Staff very friendly, many smiles from all staff (not seen that everywhere) but helps put a smile on your face. Breakfast was cereal and bread with coffee, but they also do special breakfasts occasionally (sadly we were... More

The quality of this charming small hotel is high considering the fair prices and the extras like continental breakfast, free purified drinking water, a guest library, community kitchen, and tv lounge. The location is a wonderful 10-15 minute walk from the main city square but also a mere 1/2 block from a wonderful city park that hosts many events and... More

This is small, cute and efficient hotel. I liked it fine, except that the room lacked natural lighting and the walls are paper thin. They do have a quiet after 10pm policy that was a good thing.I will say that I did love the the birds chirping at night. Overall, good experience. On a another note, if you are looking... More

We made a one night reservation at Hotel La Mariposas while traveling through Oaxaca. They had our reservation (luckily we hadn't paid yet) and they said our room was occupied by another person. They wanted us to stay in a small room with two tight beds for the four of us (two couples). We had reserved two rooms so we... More

Collen: We would like to extend our sincere apologies.

That was the reason we offered you a studio apt with two double beds for the price of one standard room... More

I spent a week at this hotel in March 2014 and had a great experience. The staff treated me extremely well and the room was very comfortable. Coffee and fresh pastries in the morning were delicious.

My father and I were in Oaxaca for a long-awaited vacation. We absolutely loved this hotel. Great location, within very easy walking distance from a lot of interesting sites. This was specially important to me in planning the trip because my father is older and at times gets very tired walking. Rooms are bit on the small side but still... More

Great little place in a nice part of Oaxaca. Within easy walking distance of Calle Macedonio Alcalá, Zocalo, Mercado 20 de Noviembre, and lots of great restaurants, but quiet and less crowded. Spotless, well-ventilated rooms surround a classic Latin American courtyard with lush tropical vegetation. Has a lot of the character of the historic Centro, combined with very hip sustainability...

A delightful budget hotel. There are a rabbit warren of rooms off lushly planted patios and alcoves with tables and chairs. Our room was toward the back. The main room was about 12ftx15ft plus shelving niches with a very comfortable king bed. Had a closet with both shelves and hangers, a small desk with chair, a small night stand, and... More
