I stayed at Las Mariposas in December 2014 This place screams simplicity and a back to basics vibe. The room I stayed in (number 5) was small, cramped and dark, into which a double bed was just about squeezed in. There was no TV in the room if that matters to you but the wifi signal was strong and reliable.... More

Amalia and i stayed here for a week. I had stayed here three years ago. Teresa and her sister, the owners, were more than helpful. I have hand craft stores in Isla Holbox and they introduced me to many artesans. We had such a great time. The hotel is located near Santo Domingo in downtown Oaxaca. It is perfectly located....

Me and my girlfriend spent two nights there. The room was clean, nice, decorated and spacy enough. The atmosphere there was very relaxing, and in the morning we got a nice breakfast of bread, jam, cornflakes and coffee/tea. They were helpfull booking tours and let us store the luggage/use bathrooms etc the whole day after we checked out. They even... More

After seven years I've finally returned to Oaxaca, and I'm happy to say Las Mariposas was just as wonderful an experience as the first time. It's lodging of course, but more. Breakfast/coffee is a social affair if you linger and chat with the other guests, something I always enjoyed. Occasionally local ladies come in and offer fresh-cooked breakfast, sometimes another...

Hotel has a beautiful courtyard and is very centrally located. Rooms were nice and clean, and hotel staff was helpful. I would recommend this to both solo travelers and couples. It was very quite, with a cute little library in the hallway.

First of all, Mariposas is in a great location. You're probably a 5 minute walk from Santo Domingo and an additional 10 minutes or so to the Zocalo. Parque Llano, which has a killer taco stand at night, is right up the street. The hotel itself was plenty tranquil. My room was in the courtyard at the rear of the... More

This was our first trip to Mexico and a friend recommended Las Mariposas to us. We had a lovely room on the second level of this delightful hotel. It was located within walking distance of Santo Domingo and other interesting sites in Oaxaca. Teresa, Cristel, Paula all made this first trip to Mexico warm and memorable. We look forward to...

Stayed at this hotel from Oct. 18th to 25th for a week. Perfect location. It is 5 minutes walk from church of Santo Domingo (which is a must see), the famous Alcala street, and basically all the happenings in town. The staff are very friendly and they were quite patient with my questions. :) The rooms are very clean too,... More

I stayed for a few nights at this subtle yet pretty little hotel near the Parque Juarez El Llano. Based on value, location, and cleanliness, I would definitely recommend Hotel Las Mariposas in the future! The only inconvenience I encountered had to do with the water pressure at this eco-friendly, water-conserving hotel. Maybe it was isolated to my room, but... More

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
