We stayed at Siete Balcones for 3 nights - the location was excellent, just a block away from the Cathedral and down the road from Santo Domingo. But the service was what made it stand out, absolutely suberb! Very helpful and friendly staff, and delicious breakfasts with quesadillas and tamales...Highly recommend it for anyone that wants a lovely hotel with... More

This hotel is in an excellent location - right on the corner of the main pedestrian walking street in the heart of the city. What you get for the price is quite good - clean rooms with comfortable beds and friendly staff who are very knowledgeable on local attractions. However, despite the hotel's best efforts to reduce street noise (double... More

We loved Casa de Siete Balcones. The staff was extremely helpful and extremely friendly. Our room and (balcony!) faced a pedestrian street where something was always happening (although once the balcony door was closed, all sound from the street was silenced). I loved the fresh breakfasts, clean room, vivid colors and artwork, and, most of all, the LOCATION!!! It is... More

We had an excellent vacation staying here. Location is great, few blocks away fron zocalo and located at Andador Aldama which has great restaurants, coffee shops and galleries. Staff is amazing. Room was nice and our bed was super comfortable. I would only recommend a bathroom renewal.

Oswaldo, Elsa Linda, Jonathan and all the rest of the staff are just wonderful. I regret that I had only one Tripadvisor Outstanding pin to leave there. Each and every one of them went out of their way to be helpful. The breakfasts were perfect. The room was ever so comfortable. And we were able to walk virtually everywhere. Our... More

All of the positive comments on this hotel are very well deserved. This hotel is close to the action, yet quiet and serene. Sitting outside your room overlooking the courtyard is the best at all hours -- The walking street is just a few steps from the hotel. This will take you to the Zocolo in one direction and to...

You have to realize that going to Oaxaca, that part of the city's charm is its historic roots. Many of the buildings are hundreds of years old, yet have withstood the test of time and have been repurposed for several things. This hotel is no exception. A former convent, this hotel has the charm of its historic construction and features... More

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Siete Balcones. It is very well located in the city center, putting all the attractions of the main city in walking distance. The rooms are quite comfortable with excellent beds. The windows are really as soundproof as you can get but it is on a very busy street so if you are a very... More

Locationwise its a great choice. Just couple of blocks to Zocalo(city centre) & Santa domingo church. In general its a clean hotel and staff are so nice and helpful. The only thing was bothering me during our stay here was the noise from outside street as well as other guests inside. I would recommend this hotel to people who wants... More
