“Perfect place in Oaxaca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

From the very beiginning we were under great impresion of this place. This hotel has both private & dorms. The hotel is perfect location and is nice & cosy - once you enter through the gate you can were not anymore in a city center but in a garden. The rooms are located around two courtyards - both ok, as well as on the 1st floor in the second courtyard. This place was my benchmark for all hotels we stayed during our three weeks stay in Mexico. Definitely it will be recommended.

I stayed at the Posada del Centro for three nights. Very central, 5 minutes from all the action, but still quiet. Excellent staff and reception. Very clean and comfortable. Has character, nice roof terrace, lots of plants and pleasant courtyard. It is nice that has the option of private rooms, double occupancy) with private bathrooms (500 pesos), as well as shared rooms and shared bathrooms (350 pesos). Adjacent to the posada there is a very small and cheep cafe, El Cafe del Centro, serving nice breakfast and anything else, good mexican fare, fruit salad, fruit juice, newspapers. Very personal service.

I had the pleasure of staying at this little hotel in Oaxaca for four nights in Feb 2014. The room rate was reasonable ($350 pesos). The room was quiet and clean. The inner courtyard is typically delightful. (see flower photo).
The hotel is just two blocks from the Zocalo, on a safe and quiet street.
There is a restaurant though I only used it for afternoon beer and WiFi.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone visiting Oaxaca.

Great little hotel in very central location. Management always present and helpful. Rooms clean and functional. Nice interior courtyards. Quieter rooms are at the back - we liked upper floor.
It is possible to store your luggage

People is very friendly and always willing to help you ( even to carry your luggage)! The rooms are big and clean and they give coffee and cookies for free! It is just three blocks away from the cathedral and one block away from the Soledad church.

My husband and I and two friends stayed here for five nights and had a wonderful experience. The location is perfect and you can walk to restaurants, shops and the zocalo. The rooms are very clean and bright and the price is right. Wenceslas speaks excellent English and was so very helpful, calling for cabs and airplane tickets and never too busy to be of assistance. The gentlemen in the small cafe was charming and extremely kind and serves a delicious breakfast. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and will hopefully be back to see our friends again soon.

Just spent three wonderful days in Oaxaca and I must say that this little hotel made our stay just perfect! They manager speaks English very well and was a wealth of information, eager to make our stay in Oaxaca good in any way he could. The hotel was simple, but very clean. The beds were comfortable and we slept well every night. AND it is a short walk to the city square where everything seems to happen. I can highly recommend this place if you are making the trip to Oaxaca!
