This charming small hotel is a renovated ex-convent that is a couple of blocks from the Zocalo and an easy walk to the Santo Domingo Cathedral, as well as many other interesting sites. The rooms are all different configurations, as you might expect for an ex- convent. Regardless of the size of the room, each one is well appointed. This... More

This charming hotel is within walking distance of the Zocalo and Alcala pedestrian street. In fact it's within walking distance of pretty much everything one would want to see in the historic downtown area of the city. It features a wonderful central courtyard with tables and umbrellas where my friends and I drank many delicious margaritas. Several rooms overlook the... More

The room we were allocated when we arrived had a strong drain smell and so did the second one they offered us, but the third one was fine. They had a nice pool and roof top seating area near the restaurant. It was nice and close to all the main areas and is a very pretty area to visit

This hotel is within a couple of blocks of the Zocalo and Avenida Alcalá, and thus close to nearly everything in the center. Four of us stayed here the last week of March, 2015. It is done in a colonial-type style with two patios, one taken up mostly by a pool, and the restaurant is adequate. Breakfast is included (or... More

A lovely hotel with rooms grouped around a central courtyard with pool.Rooms were small but well-equipped and with good toileteries. Breakfast was good and reasonably priced. The hotel is conveniently situated close to all sites.

It's always difficult, even with TripAdvisor, to pick a hotel in a new city. And with an eight night stay, it's even more chancy. But our semi-blind choice of Casantica turned out to be perfect. We arrived close to midnight, after a long day of travel, and had splurged a bit by having the hotel car meet us. Good choice... 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
