The staff are very helpful and speak English very well. the cleaning staff never stop, the place is extremely clean, the hotel is very... More

Hotel is attractive and centrally located, and the front desk staff are polite and helpful. Courtyards including the one with the pool are cool and inviting. Cleaning staff are friendly and thorough. Prices are reasonable. But . . . (1) it was a convent so rooms are VERY dark and poorly lit (especially for reading after the sun sets); (2)... More

This hotel is central to everything in Oaxaca City. Oaxaca has several streets that are for pedestrians only (usually centered around one of the many churches in the city). You can walk to many of the main areas from Casantica; lots of shopping and restaurants next to the hotel. Casantica has a cute and charming courtyard in the center. Rooms... More

This charming hotel is the ideal place to stay in Oaxaca. Close to all the action, it's an historical building that was a convent in the 16th century and has been renovated with care and flair over three levels. The entrance has a beautiful fountain; the second level has a lovely heated pool and the third level has a wonderful... More

On the bright side, great service, perfect location and a beautiful old building. On the dark side (literally), a very small room with no external window... Our best meals in town where at the restaurants they recommended to us at the front desk, glad we asked :)

Lovely hotel in the heart of the action. Service was the best I have experienced in Mexico. Rooms a bit small and I agree with some previous posts that they are a wee bit noisy at times. However this is a real charm of a hotel and I would definitely recommend it.

The Casantica has a great location near the zocolo and pedestrian mall. The rooms were squeaky clean. We were there for the Day of the Dead Celebrations and the whole hotel was decorated to the hilt with a huge altar in the patio, a life sized Catrina in the doorway, and candles in every nook and cranny. Utterly charming. The... More

Having read some of the other reviews I can agree with some aspects. The rooms are not soundproof the whole place echoes but I love it. Im sat here on the balcony overlooking the pool can't hear much just a few voices distant traffic etc. Food is a little of a let down but I am with a group so... More

Hotel Casantica is well located within walking distance of restaurants and markets. Our standard room was large with two queen size dbl beds. We also had an in room coffee maker, unusual in Mexico. The bathroom was small but adequate, was well equipped with toiletries and had a good shower. The breakfast was adequate in the main but had really... More
