We stayed here for a week during Day of the Dead celebrations this year - and enjoyed our stay immensely. This was probably our sixth or seventh stay at the Parador over the last ten years, and we have enjoyed each one. The historic center of Oaxaca is now filled with boutique hotels, many of which are beautifully decorated, but that have very impractical rooms. We have stayed at a few where all the furniture was wrought iron--not good to sit on for more than a few minutes. At the Parador, on the other hand, the decoration is quite plain, but the suites are spacious. In the livingroon there is a sofa that can seat three, plus one or two comfortable chairs. The kitchen has a table seating four; bedrooms are large with two queen beds. The parador is on Macedonia Alcala, the pedestrian walkway, just a 10-15 minute walk from the zocalo; a terrific location close to the action, but not right in the middle of the noise. The staff is very friendly, especially if you make overtures to chat with them. And the parador is one of the few hotels in central Oaxaca with a pool. Granted, it's pretty small, but it's well-maintained and is nice to cool off in after a hot afternoon's outing to Monte Alban or a village. And the cost? Currently around $60/night, including taxes. It is a great bargain. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit to Oaxaca.
The building has three floors. If you don't have trouble climbing stairs, the top floor is proba...
