The sweetest, most helpful, & entirely delightful people in Oaxaca! Competent & courteous, knowledgable & fastidious, these folks will help you with the most minute detail. They know all the best guides: a great help as you are accosted constantly by wayfaring vendor guides. They will arrange taxis, vans, you name it. Love these guys!

We enjoy having coffee and pastries in the morning with the other guests and chatting about our plans for the day. Teresa is the perfect... More

My wife and I spent a couple of days here at the end of March. It is very well-located near Parque El Llano, a short walk (15-20 min.) from the zocalo. The owner and staff are very hospitable, friendly, and helpful. The room we had ('E') is on the second floor. There were nice evening breezes to cool the place... More

I love this place! Would most certainly return. Make sure to eat a breakfast cooked by Juana and her daughters, Norma and Lucia. Ask them to to take you to their 'tapete taller' -- their weaving workshop -- outside the city.

Las Mariposas is a lovely place to stay in Oaxaca. We first stayed there in February 2011 when we first started going to Oaxaca in the winter and this winter (Feb. 2014) was our 4th visit there. The rooms are clean and attractive and the beds are comfortable. The bathrooms feature lovely Mexican tilework. The outdoor spaces are particularly outstanding... More

Las Mariposa was an excellent choice for me. Centrally located, friendly, clean. My room was simple and charming. The staff was very welcoming, and the owner, Theresa, was very helpful and friendly. The light continental breakfast was served in the central courtyard, an easy way to meet fellow travelers, gather information, or just relax. I highly recommend this hotel, particularly... More

Hotel Las Mariposas is tiny jewel near the busy center of Oaxaca. Run by a competant and helpful staff, it is pleasant, safe, clean and friendly. Guests gather in the central courtyard for breakfast, make friends and sometimes share activities.Some of the rooms are small, but the modest price makes even the tiniest rooms a good bargain.

We stayed in Las Mariposas for six days (November 18 - 24, 2013) and were lucky to get one of the apartments within the hotel. That meant that we had a cooking/dining/living area as well as a bedroom and bathroom. The apartment was perfectly clean and comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies and dishes. More importantly,... More
