Quaint restoration, anchored by a spectacular central patio fringed with high-ceilinged rooms that are a tad on the darker side (common to this type of layout where the rooms border the courtyard on one side and the street on the other, and skylights provide illumination without dispensing with privacy.)
Rich in charm, marvelously located (a few short blocks from the Zocalo and a few more from the Santo Domingo area which boasts a glut of top eateries), surprisingly quiet for its location.
Particular mention must be made of the front desk staff - without exception they went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. My check out at 12 noon was graciously extended to midnight to accommodate my late bus back to DF. I cannot imagine too many hotels that would extend this courtesy without a price tag.
At the sub $100 price tag that can be snagged online, this casa is a steal. Let's face it, if you choose to come to Oaxaca, you should choose to imbibe some of the character. If it's the Holiday Inn you seek, hmmm, may I recommend Minneapolis instead?
