Have just spent a few nights at las Bugambilias and absolutely loved it. Nov 2012.It was recommended on Lonely Planet, but for some reason is not high up on the list on Tripadvisor. It should be more highly recommended as it is a wonderful boutique style B&B.
I stayed in the small room Orquidea, which was really cute, with a tiny candle lit terrace and well worth the 70 USD price.
My room was cool, calm and beautifully decorated with Mexican arts and crafts, but not at all over done. It was very tasteful and so welcoming.
It's definitely somewhere I would be happy to stay for a longer period.
The breakfasts (fruit, granola, yoghurt, fresh juice, egg dish, home made bread and jams) were simply delicious and set in a stunning dining area.
I also ate at their restaurant La Olla twice. It was among the best food I have eaten in Mexico. The tostadas with octopus, the fish tacos and the chicken with mole negro were out if this world.
All the staff were beautifully dressed in traditional clothing and were delightful and helpful.
Close by there are many great bars, restaurants, cafes and shops.
Everything in the central part of town is within walking distance.
There are also a great deal of interesting day trips to be made from here.
Oaxaca is not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but so worth to have on your trip list, especially if you like authentic Mexican cuisine. This hotel is the perfect location for a wonderful, relaxing stay! ENJOY!
