I was fortunate to have stayed at Casa de los Frailes for 2 weeks. The hotel met and exceeded all my expectations. The hotel was beautiful inside, the rooms are very nice, everything appeared spotless, we were in a great, peaceful location, the breakfast was always delicious traditional Oaxacan menu, and I especially loved enjoying a good read on the...

We truly enjoyed staying in Casa de Los Frailes. Beautiful welcome, hotel near Oaxaca plaza and many more sites. Rooms were very clean and will refer many friends to Casa de Los Frailes for their stay. Thank for the great hospitality from Chicago IL.

The hotel has a great location a block behind Santa Domingo church. The hotel has a peaceful, retreat feeling with nicely decorated rooms. The roof is pleasant. The wifi is spotty. It worked well in my room but only in one corner of another room. The breakfast was skimpy at best. Gave one small bottle of water for each room... More

Perfect place to relax, perfect place for the money, in fact I plan on going back there next year, the owner was pretty helpful and knowledgeable about the city, would recommend anybody going there, it is a little piece of quiet and tranquility in the middle of Oaxaca. Nothing is perfect (I prefer a traditional breakfast myself, but who cares),... More

My wife discovered the hotel a year ago, it is behind the Santo Domingo Convent, really close to the botanical gardens. The place is small, but it packs lot's of charm and is more than a pleasant place to stay while in Oaxaca, also the location is amazing, since is in a little quiet street behind the main tourist street...

Went on a short romantic trip to Oaxaca, with a couple of recommendations but nothing booked ahead. Everything turned out to be either too expensive or not what we were looking for, so we ended up here, in Casa de los Frailes. Typical old colonial house, excellent location within the historic district, deco of the common areas ok, bedrooms clean... More

I am already planning a trip back to this beautiful place! Prior to my arrival, I was nervous and worried about the type of accommodations I would find. Yes, the pictures look nice but, I've been tricked before. However, from the aesthetic to the service this Hotel is Amazing! Fresh, friendly, and reasonable this is the hotel to stay at!... More

Really nice hotel, rooms are clean, strong wifi, excellent location, very friendly people. The bathroom is a bit tiny, tough, but it's not a problem. At least, always had hot water. In fact, a good place to stay 2-3 days at least. I will only describe two issues. 1. Wndows (room 114, probably other rooms facing the street). The handle... More

Consistency is not the forte of Casa de los Frailes. We did not expect luxury for our $58 but when there was no hot water our first morning and the young man at the desk said he'd forgot to turn it on (it is turned off during the night), and then said he "hoped" we'd have hot water the next...

This was our first (wonderful) visit to Oaxaca, we stayed in the City six days. We decided both of our hotels by reading the trip advisor critics, Hotel Casa Los Frailes has terrific comments so we stayed theta two nights out of five, the lady at the front desk was (uncomfortably excesive) nice to us, the Room, a double bedroom...
