“Charming spanish style hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The hotel had two courtyards, one covered, with rooms areound the courtyards on 3 floors. This meant that some of the rooms were a bit dark but they were clean and fitted with charming old ceraminc and brass bathroom fittings and comfortable and clean beds. The pool was small but very refreshing, and the breakfasts were good value with vegetarian options. Didn't eat dinner there but the sandwich at lunch was fine and the service friendly. There was wifi which was a bit hit and miss and the terracotta tiles around the courtyard meant some of the ground floor room could be a bit noisy. It was very close to the centre and the restaurants and all in all a very nice little hotel for the money.

My family was welcomed on Saturday in the late afternoon by the kind and courteous staff after having a really bad experience at the Holiday Inn Express Oaxaca. We were pleasantly surprised by the beautifully designed court yard and the rooms.

This location is only a block and a half away from the Zocalo and four or five away from the local Mercardo. It is extremely convenient and we went everywhere on foot, even our kids did.

I would highly recommend this place if you are visiting Oaxaca!

We spent two days in this medium-high level hotel. It is located in the best place in town just between the two major attractions of the city: the zocalo and the cathedral santo Domingo. Staff is super friendly and helpful: A guy had to come 3-4 times to our room to make sure that TV remote control was working and he eventually changed the batteries for us. Swimming pool is nice even if small and enjoys sun from 10 to 17 everyday. A good place for a break after lunch in the hottest hours. Breakfast is ok and enough varied, but I must say that the restaurant (except for breakfast) is not at the level of other restaurants in Oaxaca. I would not eat here more than necessary. Ask for a room on a high floor otherwise you risk to have windows only overlooking the courtyard/swimming pool.

Our stay was exceptional! The rooms are a bit small compared to those in the US and a bit humid but with the AC units, that is taken care of in less than 10 minutes. The staff is absolutely amazing. They are helpful and give great recommendations. The hotel is located central to anything you want to see in Oaxaca. We will definitely be returning soon! Great service for a great price.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a room with a window for bright light.

The hotel has 2 patio's. Best to stay in the 2nd, around the pool. In the 1st patio there are sometimes events (a wedding, an art exhibition) - but they are finished at 22u00. Good restaurant, nice to have dinner and breakfast at the 1st patio. Location is perfect. To the left is the carfree zone around the StDomingochurch, to the right is the zocalo (incredible nice play to hang around, Oaxacans seem to dance a lot) and the markets.

Room Tip: Stay at the 2nd patio

Don't be mislead by the photos on tripadvisor. We thought we had a great deal and what we had was a very small and dark room. Bed and pillows really uncomfortable and very bad quality in the bed linens. There are better options with better prices.
