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

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
