“Good Value - Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2010

We spent a week in Oaxaca on a Rotary project, building latrines and chicken coops in the villages on the hillsides near the city. It was great to come back to Oaxaca every evening to a clean room and a hot shower. - While we were there, the computer in the reception area was not working, and the closest Internet Cafe was a block and a half away. A minor inconvenience, but still not as easy as it could have been. - The little bus that was supposed to pick us up and bring us back from our project was not allowed to drive all the way to the hotel, but had to park about 3 blocks away. I don't know if that is so all of the time, but it was somewhat difficult at the end of a long day. Of course, this was specific to our needs, and other travelers don't need buses on a daily basis.

We spent a week in Oaxaca, and found this to be our favorite hotel. Clean, hot water, perfect location for the activities, or getting a ride to other parts of the city. Price was great for location and room. I'm a designer, and can be picky, so I was happy to find a nice clean cheap place right off the square. Ohh and the tours were well priced and organized. english speaking guides and staff was very helpful.

Our first hotel was a nightmare, so we were very pleased to find Hotel Trebol for the second half of our trip. Hotel Trebol is one block from the zocala, beautifully kept, comfortable beds, large clean rooms, wonderful staff and responsive service. If we return to Oaxaca we will be staying here again.

One block from the Zocalo and right across the street from the mercado, the location is very convenient. Rooms facing the street are noisy (traffic, people, loud music) but the interior rooms are very quiet. The entire property is well kept and the decor is sophisticated. What's wrong are the cheap beds, which are comparable to slim backpacker pads; that is, almost no padding. . The showers stalls were roomy, but adjusting the hot water was a challenge - either too hot or too cold. The restaurant was convenient and had good service. But you could eat across the street in the mercado for half the price. Hotel and travel staff were friendly and helpful. I recommend this hotel to young backpacker types who don't mind sleeping on a hard slab. Those who want a softer mattress, try The Principal (much cheaper) or Antequerra.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2009

Party of four stayed at this property for three nights in two rooms. Both were quiet interior rooms with updated decor and conveniences such as cable, modern bath, and comfortable albeit firm beds. I guaranteed the room with a credit card which they processed immediately and caused a problem with my credit card company's security arm. This resulted in the cancellation of the credit card. In addition, when we got there they had reserved the rooms for three nights beginning on our departure date. I would recommend no guaranteed reservations here unless absolutely necessary. The hotel does have an acceptable adjoining restaurant and at times hot water has to be requested by telephone. We had stayed at Posada Hotel Catarina last year but found service to be wholly indifferent. The hotel is very convenient to the Zocalo and market...and the room rate reasonable...Overall, I rrecommend it.

My boyfriend and I stayed at here for our first 5 days in Oaxaca City. The staff wasn't necessarily the friendliest but they were, for the most part, efficient. The restaurant had exceptionally tasty food and delicious coffee along with great service, all at our a really low price.
The BIG problem we had was with the first room we were given upon arriving. Room 408: a windowless, tiny room that was nicely decorated but still reminded us of a basement apartment. It had no airflow- that's putting it mildy, as we discovered that it was actually cooler outside (Mexico in August!) than in the room, despite the high powered fan we had going at all times. We requested a different room and were told that weren't any available, despite the fact that I was sure I saw quite a few empty rooms every morning. Anyways, we said were going to leave and then magically they had a different room that we could move to the next day. That room was clean, open & well lit and generally a 110 percent more pleasant.
Aside from that, the location of the hotel is great: right next to a big indoor market and a lot of delicious food vendors, and only a few blocks away from the zócalo. Even the maid service here was pretty surprising: they folded our clothes and rolled up our socks!
So, to conclude: I would recommend this hotel with the advice that when making your reservation you specifically request "una habitación con una ventana." Seriously.

It was my mother and I's first time in Oaxaca and wanted a hotel that was central to the main happenings and moderately priced, nothing too extravagant. Hotel Trebol lived up to those expectations. The hotel was one block south of the Zocalo and very near the local markets. The rooms were very basic and, of course, the beds were extremely hard making it rather uncomfortable to sleep. There was a slight problem with the hot and cold faucets in the bathroom. The showers were too hot at times. The staff was only ok. Not the most vibrant and warm staff but were helpful. I did like that the tour desk was located in the hotel and she was able to arrange our accomations and flights to Huatulco at no charge. The breakfast downstairs was great. I usually had mexican hot chocolate, yogurt and gronala and egg/meat scrambler. Very good and inexpensive at 45 pesos. All in all good hotel if you want something basic and central to everything but maybe would try a bed and breakfast place next time, someplace that was more personable.

  • Liked — Location, breakfast
