My girlfriend and I stayed at the hotel 6 nights over Semana Santa 2008. Got the address from Lonely Planet and booked the room over the phone in Spanish 2 weeks in advance, confimed the same day, worked great. The hotel is 2 blocks outside the center, so the airport minibus rates double to 70 Pesos pp, better to take a cab for 100 pesos from right outside the airport. Watch out it is 280 Pesos for the minibus if there is nobody to share.
Extremely nice reception, very nice, extremely clean room, beautifully remade every day. 1st floor, a bit noisy at night. Very nice interior courtyard with plants. Some very minor things were fixed immediately. CNN reception was not great,we did not complain. Some wireless internet (maybe from the neighbors) sporadically available. Breakfast on the rooftop with nice views, but not much to see. Breakfast rather expensive by Oaxaca standards, 50-60 Pesos pp for quite average fare, but very friendly service. No menu, a bit hard to order in English (my girlfriend speaks no Spanish).
On the last morning the female owner completely screwed up our very good impression of the place. She first charged my girlfriend 5 Pesos for calling a taxi (not very generous after a 6 day stay, her husband had done it for free a couple of days earlier), then suggested to her to take us to the airport for 150 Pesos. When I canceled this (a cab is only 100 Pesos), she refused to call a cab and sent us with our baggage out to the cobblestones to pick one up a cab on the Avenue. Apparently, Semana Santa was over and it was all back into the old greed.
