Clean, comfortable and well located. I liked that they gave a bucket to collect the water it took to get hot water to your room and used it to water the plants. The staff was friendly and kind. Some nice conversations with other travelers over coffee in the morning.

We just returned from a very pleasant two-week stay at Las Mariposas over Christmas And New Years. If you're not looking for luxury but want a clean, affordable, guest-friendy B&B in a convenient location in the center of Oaxaca, Las Mariposas is the place for you. This is an eco-friendly hotel with both standard rooms and studios with kitchenettes that... More

We enjoyed our stay at Las Mariposas and would definitely stay there again. There is a nice courtyard where guests meet for breakfast. This place is so popular that some travelers stay there for over a month, making it their home base. It is in a great location within walking distance of zocalo or the bus station.

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

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.

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
