What a lovely little hotel this is, great location, very friendly staff. Very helpful. Nicely decorated rooms close to plazas and good food we enjoyed our four days here, comfortable beds and nice terrace on the roof. Great place and reasonable price,

I received great service at Casa de Los Frailes. The staff was friendly and helpful. My room was very clean with a good shower comfortable bed and air conditioning. I loved the location! It was an easy walk to everything I was interested in seeing. The continental breakfast was minimal but adequate. Laundry service was excellent, fast and inexpensive.

Spent four days at the hotel in Oaxaca and was really happy with our choice.. The location was perfect; just two blocks from the main square yet far enough to enjoy the quiet.. The staff could not be more friendly or accommodating. Highly recommend

Compared to other hotels in this price range, the rooms are a cut above. There is air conditioning, a flat screen TV, and a strong shower. My room was quiet and very comfortable. I appreciated the effort to decorate the rooms to make them seem very homey. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Now, for the reason I didn't... More

Our plans changed at the last minute for health reasons and we needed a hotel in the historic district for 2 nights. Casa de Los Frailes was the perfect place! The staff couldn't have been more kind and helpful. Our room was comfortable and quiet and well appointed. This is a wonderful colonial hotel, and I would return in a... More

My niece, who lives in Oaxaca, recommended this hotel because it was close to the center of town - but far enough away as to not have our sleep disrupted by social protest that afflict the city on a daily basis. Pros: Clean room (everyday), A/C, TV (never used but still), Excellente helpful staff, decor Cons: Continental breakfast -Coffee (perfect)... More

We had stayed in Oaxaca down by the Zócalo before going to Puerto Escondido for 4 days, so needed a spot for one night on our return before flying home. Though there was nothing wrong with where we stayed the first time, I wish we had stayed all the nights here! The hotel is welcoming, intriguing, and though nicely and... More

By the time we leave we have been here almost two weeks. We have been treated to extraordinary hospitality by all the staff including the family representative on site and Alejandro the ever Cheerful and accommodating front desk manager. He has gone out of his way on numerous occasions but out did himself today when he personally drove us to... More

A beautiful old colonial house in an unbeatable location, right by Santo Domingo cathedral and gardens. Family owned and run, friendly and helpful, good English spoken, very reasonably priced for its upmarket neighbourhood (good cash discounts). Doesn't seem to be in many English language guide books which makes it something of a hidden gem!

We stayed here twice in January 2015 - perfect location right near St Domingo. The staff were really helpful and friendly - they made calls for us to help us with onward bookings - and just looked after us really well. Would definitely come back here. An extremely clean hotel - and the kingsize bed was very welcome. Some of... More
