This hotel was recommended in the Lonely Planet as clean but simple. It was not clean, the bathroom had a family of cockroaches. The walls are paper thin so we also had the pleasure of listening to the people next door throw up all night, I actually felt sorry for them having to spend so much time in the bathroom. We paid $30 for a king bed with private bathroom and we felt this was not good value for money. On a positive note the location is central just be mindful that you will probably be awoken early in the morning by church bells.

We are very, very sorry this traveler had a negative experience in our posada.

But we hope tripadvisor readers take this review "with a grain of salt." Our walls, for example, are not "paper thin:" they are solid 10 inch thick solid brick. The entire building is brick and adobe (as is typical in historical Oaxaca).
So whereas we question the judgment of someone who can not distinguish between a paper wall and a solid brick wall, we do take our criticisms seriously. If the bathroom was not cleaned and scrubbed properly before this visitor's arrival, or if he did indeed see cockroaches (yuc!), we suggest this was an aberration.
The Posada Margarita has been serving happy travelers for over 60 years. Even if 99% of our guests leave happy, we promise to redouble our efforts to continue to improve our service and your experience at La Posada Margarita. Buen viaje!
