This was my fourth stay at Hotel Las Mariposas and I enjoy it more each time I'm there! It is very clean and affordable and the staff is wonderful! The location is great for walking to restaurants and the local park is very close. The Lending Library is right next door and many interesting activities are held there.The weather is... More

Many rooms, all different, at this reasonably priced hotel in Oaxaca City. It's within a 10-15 minute easy walk to the zocala, and plenty of local restaurants nearby. Some rooms have kitchenettes; others don't. Some rooms are quite small; others plenty of room. The back courtyard has its own nice feel. Long stays are not at all uncommon, but either... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the standard at Las Mariposas. It was spotless and congratulations to them on leading the way with eco friendly practices. The courtyards were tranquil spots for a rest in a hammock, a little emailing, talking to others. Breakfast was in one of these courtyards. A very simple breakfast of brewed coffee and bread. I felt... More

The hotel was a really lovely relaxed place. It is quite spread out and there are lots of relaxation, lounge areas and tables in different parts of the hotel so you can have some privacy even in the common areas. The rooms don't really get any direct sunlight so you will probably want to sit outside during the day. The... More

This is a wonderful place. We spent eight nights there. There is breakfast every morning which brings together everyone staying there. We met several couples we hit it off with and ended up taking trips and tours with them. Most of the other guests were Canadian or American. Some of them were staying for long periods. One spent several months... More

The double room we had was very spacious, clean bathroom, hammocks outside and communal kitchen that you could use. Staff could be a bit more friendly but other than that all was fine. Be warned that there are mosquitoes in the garden. Very good location in the city.

If we return to Oaxaca (and there's a good chance since 4 days was wa-a-a-ay too short) we will stay here in one of the studios. We had a normal room for our short stay, room F, and it had everything we needed but a safe. When we asked about leaving valuables we were assured that the room was absolutely... More

This hotel was recommended by friends who stayed at Las Mariposas in March and it certainly lived up to its billing. The rates were most reasonable for the quality of the accommodation. Beds were very comfortable and the room was super clean. Good location near Parque de Llano, excellent Marco Polo Restaurant nearby, and best guacamole ever at 100% Natural... More

Almost didn't spot that this was a hotel from the street, don't be put off by the large iron gates go in and you will be in for a great surprise.
