I chose this hotel because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor, and was not disappointed.
Great location, spotlesslly clean, lots of hot water and extremely helpful staff. I speak no Spanish, but this was not a problem at all.
It is a small hotel, but this only adds to its charm. The courtyard is delightful (although I ewish they didn't have caged birds). My room was the smallest of the lot, but I certainly found it large enough for my needs. Love the towels folded into different animal shapes every day.
Only two drawbacks: 1) the restaurant is overpriced and the food unexceptional, and 2) the recommended tour company was dismal. I tool 4 of these tours and only 1 (to Monte Alban) was worth the price. You are far better off hiring a taxi for a day than going on these cattle trips. Food from the street stalls 2 blocks away is a far better bet for eating.
I spent 5 nights here and found it just wasn't enough time to see and do everything I wanted. Recommend you spend at least a week; preferably two!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- With a privileged location, 20 minutes from the airport. In the historical downtown area, only a half block from the Central Alameda. The beautiful colonial-style building has three floors with 23 rooms, including four suites.Located on one of the main avenues in the city, the facade had a grand entry door of carved cedar, opening to a lovely porch with a statue of St. Michael the Archangel.A wrought iron gate opens to the hotel vestibule, where walls of ochre, terra-cotta, beige and cream combine with dark green ironwork and green granite columns to provide a dramatic backdrop for the brilliant bougainvillea and geraniums that thrive in the home's central patio. From here you can catch a hint of the spellbinding flavors of our Oaxacan kitchen. In "La Cocina" you can choose a magical dish to your specifications.Small gardens lead to the first level rooms. A majestic green granite stairway crowned with glorious stained glass leads to the second and third levels. On the second level terrace, you could relax or sunbathe accompanied by canaries in a kaleidoscope of multicolored flowers. ... more less
