This hotel has a really cool old classic Mexican structure that you will love. Location is excellent, just 3 blocks away from Santo Domingo square. Clean rooms and friendly staff. The only downside are the towels and beds were a little too hard for my taste. I would stay here again.

We stayed here one night. The price is quite good considering the location, however the Bathroom had a lousy smell, we had a room with a window to the parking lot that is underground so you can imagine how bright our room was :-S...... The room just looks kind of cheap.... but, if you go to Oaxaca you are not... More

My friend and I got an amazing deal on this modern, clean & friendly place via a travel Website, which definitely influenced how we felt about it. If we had paid the typical price, I would have been mildly disappointed, as Hotel Cantera doesn't have the charm, gardens & views of similarly priced hotels. For the rate we did pay,... More

This place is really nice, fairly modern and very clean. The staff is helpful and cheerful. My friend and I have enjoyed coffee and breakfast in their cute little restaurant. However, the Wi-Fi sucks. I don't understand why they would shoot themselves in the foot like that.

I have always stayed in a different neighborhood [hotel] when in Oaxaca and was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. We had great front desk [Giovanni & Manuel ] people who were very helpful on a daily basis. Nicely located, the walk to the Zocalo was interesting daily, many different streets to walk, which is the whole idea in Oaxaca.... More

I was here with a tour last year for Dia de los Muertos. No a/c which is not a big deal really, but our only window opened to the garage, and if you left it open the exhaust was horrible as well as car noise. When the window was closed, it was stifling. And they had no fans. I asked... More

We stayed 6 nights. The rooms were decent size and very clean. Just check beds first, some can be too firm. The staff were all nice, but very little English. Takes about 10 min. -12 min. to walk to the Zocalo. Free wifi in room.

I have stayed in Oaxaca City many times, this is my 5th or 6th trip, and I am consistently impressed with the quality and service at the Cantera Real. The in-house restaurant is a great plus and they have been accomodating when I have arrived late at night (almost 10 PM) -- providing a simple meal and allowing me to... More
