Location, location, location. Pino Suarez is noisy and so are the front kitchenette rooms, but it's a short walk to: Instituto Caultural; Ell Llano where they have a great Friday market; Santo Domingo and the "calle turistica," and all you have to do to get a taxi is stand on the street for less than 3 minutes. The zocalo and... More

This was the 4th time I have stayed in Oaxaca and I can say this is my favourite place so far. Its location is ideal in every way. It is less than a 10 minute walk to the bus station and from the hotel you are close to Parque Llano and the Templo Santo Domingo. This also means that both... More

We stayed 4 nights at Las Mariposas, and it was a very good choice for a good, central hotel. Great breakfast- nice pastries with gem and butter, along with good coffee. There is a nice garden and the room has a king sized bed. Service was ok, no special amenities.

Las Mariposas is a great option in Oaxaca. The rooms are simple, spacious and clean. There are two courtyards to relax in when you just need a place to sit and read, although these are great spaces to meet other travelers. The staff is excellent - Teresa (the owner) is a gem - and they will do all they can... More

This hotel was welcoming and extremely detail oriented. Bedroom was clean, comfortable, and relaxing. Having breakfast in the patio with all other guests was my favorite. The owner, Teresa, was very knowledgeable of surrounding events, as well as a pleasure to talk to. I felt right at home.

Excellent customer service and local knowledge from front of house staff, concierge services provided where excellent (tour bookings, dining recommendations, spa appointments). I recommend the massage appointment, cooking lessons and manicure service. Hotel goes well beyond to ensure you get everything you want from your stay in this most beautiful city.

We spent four nights at Hotel Las Mariposas and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Oaxaca. The hotel has a series of lovely courtyards and shady spots to relax, and our room was clean, airy, quiet and very comfortable. It's in a great position - you can walk to all of the sights in about 15 minutes - and... More

This hotel was lovely, with courtyards and a great location. Unfortunately, I did not get a room that was acceptable, and they were not able to move me to another. The room (actually a studio) was dark with no windows. There was little ventilation unless I kept the screened doors to the hallway open. I was just around the corner... More

This was the second time my husband and I have stayed here, and he stayed for two weeks in October when he came on his own for a Spanish language class. This is the first time we have come in February, and we did notice a different demographic than when we came in the fall--the snowbirds have landed. The hotel... More

Stayed in Hostal las Mariposas for our few days in Oaxaca, where we were trading off on budget versus quality/comfort. Really nice hostel (more like family run hotel) with a lovely cool inner courtyard to enjoy breakfast and see the odd Monarch butterfly. We got a very large room with kitchen and two beds for the same price as our... More
