4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Very simple.. but spotless and I must say the best beds I slept on during my vacation to the State of Oaxaca and this was the cheapest room I paid for. They are extremely accomodating .. and the location CANNOT be beat !!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We went to this hotel because of the reviews on trip advisor. We liked it. It's quite a simple place and the room we initially had (12) was small with a lot of light at night and noisy, with no hot water. We asked about the water and were moved to a much more beautiful room (15) when they couldn't fix it for us. The staff were very friendly and the morning coffee was very good. Close by the center, but far enough out to feel like a local (only 3 blocks, but it made a nice difference). Would return.

Room Tip: Look at your room first :)

The helpful staff was attentive from check in, stored our bags on the last day while we traveled on the last day, and was great throughout. The rooms and shared bathroom was clean. There are private bathrooms as well.

The free coffee and wi-fi are nice touches as well. Located blocks from the Zocalo, this is an excellent place to stay.

The only downside is that the walls are minimally thin, which could be hard for very light sleepers.

Posada del Centro had an incredibley friendly and helpful staff; beautiful and clean courtyards, perfectly clean rooms with comfortable beds. Very comfortable. No bugs, clean fresh water, coffee in the morning. This hotel is perfect for anyone on a budget or even without a budget. The rooms have either private baths or shared (we shared a bath and walked across the courtyard for the bathroom) and it was still very nice. Very clean, kept up, not filled with people, good showers, no bugs. The rooms had ample space, closets. The staff helped us to understand everything we needed to know and even let us talk to them in Spanish (as they saw we really wanted to practice) and talked to us in perfect english only when we really needed. They were great and gave us an unbeatable deal. The place was perfect for a beer in the courtyard at sundown, quiet peace and a 3 minute walk to zocala, all transit, the bus stations for Mitla and Monte Alban...amazing. I would absolutely return and be delighted to stay with them.

Room Tip: ask about deals, no tips needed!
