“Lovely little hotel with a serious noise problem”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

In a few words here-- the proprietor of this hotel, the very sweet Patricia, faces a serious problem that is apparently out of her control. There is a pop-up night club that has sprung up in an empty building next door, and they BLAST music from midnight until 6 a.m. When I say BLAST, I mean that it sounds as if they have set up their giant sound system in your room at Casa Pereyra. I normally pride myself on sleeping through ANYTHING, but sadly this level of noise (volume 10) was intolerable, in fact it was actually quite torturous. When I say 6 a.m., we left at 6:45 am ("let's get the F*%# out of here!!!" were our actual words) and the music was still going. (Thank god they at least had a really good DJ. We should have just gotten up and danced until 7 am with them at the foot of our bed). Patricia doesn't live on the property, so she can't hear the noise. According to another guest that spoke to the hotel staff about the noise, one of the hotel staff said that the police can't catch these rouge club promoters because they are setting up in a nearby vacant building. Huh? They are blasting music on volume 10 to a crowd of hundreds of people that are hooting and hollering for 6-7 hours every night and they can't be found? I'll help the police out on this one...they are right next door to Casa Pereyra guys! Still, it makes it sound as if the staff has known of this problem before. They need to warn guests in advance that this might happen.

Judging from the previous reviews, which is how I booked in the first place, this pop-up nightclub must be new, because it isn't mentioned elsewhere. Therefore, rather than give the hotel a one-star review (I think it is reasonable to be able to expect to sleep at a hotel, and if that is impossible then the place deserves one star) I will give it three stars. If the pop-up club wouldn't have happened, twice, I would give it 5 stars for the value.

My advice to future travelers? Be sure to negotiate something up front with Patricia should the club promoters return (maybe we were simply unlucky and they only came for two nights while we were there during the New Years weekend?). If the club takes place, the room should be free that night since you will not sleep.

Other tips? The hotel is spotless, the staff are super helpful, the location is fantastic. If you want privacy, don't book studios 1-3 since other guests gather at the chairs and tables in the shared courtyard directly in front of these rooms. You can close your doors and windows of course, but that means you will lose all natural light. However, these are the rooms with kitchenettes, so if you plan to cook then I think these are the rooms to book.

Overall, had we been able to sleep, I would say that Casa Pererya is a great place for the price. A charming hotel in a great location- just 3 blocks from the zocolo. Patricia is a good host, and will point out sights worth visiting. There isn't any parking, so if you have a rental car expect to pay $8 per day in a garage, or follow the parking rules and just park on the streets about 4 blocks away where overnight parking is allowed. The hotel has free slooooow WIFI for those that need it. We didn't turn on the TV so I can't comment on it.

It is not a B&B but feels like one. Flowery patio, warm colors. We had a kitchenette in our room: very practical to keep drinks cold.
Quiet patio with chairs & tables, coffee/tea served in the morning - a very good value very close to the center.

Loved this place. I debated giving it 4 stars since our room didn't have a/c and there were a few nights we wanted it. But the free, delicious Oaxacan coffee each morning sent to our room made up for it :) Wonderful staff, ok location, very quiet in our room although we were nervous at first due to the noisy street. Our room was perfect, clean and quaint. Great way to spend some time in Oaxaca.

Only three blocks from the zocalo at the center of Oaxaca, this hotel is a charming place to stay. Many of its rooms have a small kitchenette which allowed us the opportunity to prepare simple meals, coffee, tea, etc. without having to go out to a restaruant (although there are numerous fine restaruants within close walking distance). The rooms are spacious, each with its own personality, "wifi" connection and cable TV. There is a quite patio outside the rooms that is a pleasant place to sit any time during the day with its attractive plants and free coffee service each morning. The manager, Senora Patricia, is amiable and helpful, a good guide to the city and its diverse offerings. Despite recent reports in the media, in the past four years that we have visited Oaxaca we have found the city to be quite safe--never have we felt uncomfortable, even when walking throughout the city long after dark. A well-priced accomodation, we recomment Casa Pereyra without reservation.

In February 2011, we spent three wonderful weeks in the UNESCO Heritage city of Oaxaca, Mexico at the “Hotel Casa Pereyra”, a colonial house dating back to the 1800s. Contrary to what one sees on websites of other places, the website pictures of Casa Pereyra are exactly what you will find, and better. The only thing missing in these pictures is Paty, the warm, friendly and helpful manager of the place. As requested, we stayed one week in Studio #3, this spacious main floor studio, has a living/bedroom, a shower bathroom and a kitchenette. After finding out that another reservation we had for the remaining two weeks, was not at par to what Casa Pereyra offers, we decided to stay at this quaint hotel. We moved to the two-story Suite #4, with a living/dining room and a full kitchen on the main floor. Upstairs we had a spacious bedroom with a Queen size bed, a shower bathroom and a corner office leading to a lovely balcony, from where the sun and the birds awakens you in the morning. This Suite also has a private outdoor seating area filled with warm sunshine in the morning and restful shade in the afternoon. The apartments (they also have several single hotel rooms) have fully equipped kitchen with all the needed utensils, and if you are missing something, you just need to ask Paty, she will do everything possible to get it for you. The apartments are impeccably clean, thanks to the responsible and friendly Sofia, as well as, Delia and Ruth. The well-cared potted garden, filled with beautiful plants and flowers, has two tables with umbrellas, which are perfect to eat outdoors, read, relax or just great to spend a lazy afternoon. Although located on a main street, Casa Pereyra's description can be summed up in a few words: a sanctuary, an oasis for your eyes, impeccably clean, and most of all, a great place to stay because of its welcoming and warmth staff. There is free WiFi and it works well, but the TV receptions need improvement. We certainly recommend this hotel to anybody who loves to enjoy the real Mexico, where with-in walking distance you find the historical centre, well appointed museums, stores filled with beautiful handcrafts, restaurants, open air folkloric shows and the free band concerts played at the “zocalo”, the main square. Casa Pereyra will be our future destination, when ever we go back to Oaxaca.
