“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Casa Abu is a good location for touring the city centre . Clean and modern design in a colonial building. Good service, clean, and a great cooked breakfast makes for good value for money .
Negatives are noisy interior , you can here everything from the central public area and voices of noisy guests , everyday woken at around six by guests moving . No parking which is common in this zone , but the lack of good parking nearby means , either parking in the street -- not easy to find space or paying almost 10 dollars the night ( 9 to 9 ) extra hours by the hour and access to carparks is surprisingly limited , in the closest one they open at 7.30 on sunday morning to close at 9.30 and do not open again till 9 in the evening . If you have a car its cheaper to stay outside the centre with parking and take taxis to the centre.

Casa Abu has an excellent location, but the rooms are a little small and they don't have any sensation of luxury. It is a 2 to 3 star hotel. The breakfast buffet, which is included in the rate is very good. The hotel Camino Real is just a few steps away and it is so beautiful, but the prices are much more expensive. If you want to save money this is a good option, but don't expect anything special.

Its location makes this hotel de best (just 2 blocks away from Santo Domingo church and 3 blocks away from the Zocalo).I stayed here the whole weekend and it couldn't have been better. its a very different hotel with a whole different concept and if you're done with all those big old constructions they turned into hotels this is what you're looking for. The beds and pillows are soft, the room was very clean and if you stay in the balcony section you get a lot of natural light. The lobby section is lovely! They only serve breakfast but its ok because there are A LOT of excellent restaurants nearby. The guys at the front desk are all very nice and they help you as much as they can.
Can't wait to go back!
PS: Be prepared!! 'cause they don't accept American Express...

1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2006

Staying in Oaxaca over the holidays, hotels were hard to come by and we stayed in the Parador Plaza. While the service was good and the staff very friendly, I can't recommend the place. The room we had was spartan and the bed soft, but the worst was the cold. There wasn't any heating and the window in the room opened to an exposed interior courtyard. The window could not be totally closed, so at night the room was quite cold. We did get several extra blankets (which were readily supplied), but that didn't really take off all the chill. It was unfortunate that it wasn't more comfortable, because the staff was very nice and helpful.
