Beautiful little boutique hotel that I would highly recommend. Great location for sightseeing, great breakfasts, great views and lovely friendly staff. Lovely roof area to sunbathe or relax with a drink

Very clear rooms, staff gracious, location - 10 min afoot max from Zocalo (center) - what else?! Rooms not big, but compact and comfortable enough! Near local food market)) in the hotel food pricey, but no problem eat nearby.

Hello, it was a good discovery. My husband and I totally recommend it. This hotel has a great location because it is walking distance of Santo Domingo and other atractions in downtown. The coffee shop at the hotel is a nice option to have a drink just before you go to sleep. Try the 'te de la casa' (tea of the house) and a carrot muffin.

Casa del Sotano is a pleasant small hotel with lovely gardens and facilities. We did have a lower level (courtyard view) room to gain space and a king bed. The room included a sitting room with sofa and table / chairs and a separate sleeping room. Planning ahead and requesting an upper room with larger bed is helpful. The views from the restaurant (very good breakfast prepared to order) and especially the mirador (roof deck) are great and center on the Santo Domingo church and monastery complex. Although the street on which the hotel is located is a major bus and car route into the city center, the rooms are situated in the rear of the complex (no room windows on the street), which reduces noise. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is a perfect take-off point for city site seeing and walking to tour and public transport departures.

Room Tip: Ask for the largest upper floor rooms! Check about air conditioning if desired, not all rooms have i...

Loved the location, and the view from the restaurant a wonderful way to start of your day in Oaxaca. The staff was helpful, accommodating, and attentive. I recommend staying in the larger rooms on the upper floors that face the courtyard, the rooms lower down can be dark with no view.

It is about a five minute walk down hill to the center town, so you will have to walk back up... But you get a beautiful view for your effort (see picture).

This was our 4th trip to Oaxaca City and we rented the suite at Hotel Casa del Sotano which gave us plenty of room and having the sofa and table was a plus. The patio had a great view and the food each morning was excellent as was the coffee. The staff was helpful and the location was good for walking down to the zocolo and enjoying the festivities of Day of the Dead. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

I can see why people like this hotel, it was attractive and welcolming, but as a few others have noted, our room was very small. After arriving from Mexico City and Puerto Escondido, where we had spacious quarters, we felt trapped in our tiny room. Perhaps it would have been okay for a single person, but not for a couple. The room was all bed without even a comfortable chair to sit in.By comparison, in Mexico City we had a two bedroom suite in the Zona Rosa for not much more than our room here.
