Our nice room was in the bottom floor next to a little courtyard. Lovely breakfast views. (Breakfast not included.)Amazing views from the rooftop terrace. We stayed as a family of three and loved it. The entire hotel is tasteful.

I'd been to this place a couple of times for a coffee, for the ambiance and sun on their out-door cafe, overlooking fountains and a sweet garden. Id been to Oaxaca a handful of times alone, but I went with my boyfriend and wanted to stay someplace romantic. The rooftop has a cool view of the city. The neighborhood its... More

Right in the historic centre, the location is perfect. Pleasant inner patio and a terrace overlooking Oaxaca's rooftops where you can experience a spicy Mexican breakfast (try tamale mole). Very good value for money.

The location was great very central, only a 5 min walk into the center of the city. But quiet enough to be away from it all. Food was absolutely fantastic and the accomodation was very clean and roomy. A great place to have a few drinks after a days walking too. however, Gab and his wife were the diamond in... More

I stayed here last year but been way too busy to get an account write a review. I would highly recommend this place which is just walking distance away from the Zocalo. The rooftop restaurant is amazing. I will definitely stay here again when visiting Oaxaca.

Stayed for three nights March 2014. Centrally located five blocks from Zocalo. As stated, it is a busy street but the interior facing rooms negate any noise. Rooms are small and bathrooms tiny but they are both clean and secure. Courtyard interior must be a labour of love; incredibly well maintained and peaceful. Small cafe alfresco with good breakfast. Bistro... More

We stayed for a week in this hotel conveniently located 5-10 minutes' walk from the centre. They give a very good price if you pay cash. It is located in a busy street but inside there is no noise from the traffic. The atrium is lovely with flowers and decorations. Rooms are nice, medium size and a tiny, but efficient... More

It's got its charm, with its garden/courtyard in the middle, and a nice view from the restaurant. We had some problems with the double bed being too small for two people. No extra blankets, no heat, and thin doors such that you can hear everyone from your room. But, it's a good value. We paid cash and they reduced our... More

After searching for hours for a hotel while visiting Oaxaca, I decided on this one and I'm extremely happy that I did. The hotel is a hidden gem in the heart of the city and is walking distance to local attractions. Our room had a king bed and was very comfortable unlike many of the reviews I read. The room... More
