This is our first stay at Casa Vertiz in oaxaca and we couldn't be happier. The hotel is built around a lush, almost tropical internal courtyard and has roof terrace with fantastic view of the Santa Domingo church. We stayed in room 'Paccas' which we would recommend as it is at the back of the upper level of the courtyard, so it's quieter and more private than some of the other rooms. We chose to have breakfast in the hotel courtyard as the food was excellent, the service extremely polite and endless cups of good coffee. The room was very clean and there's also a coffee machine in the room, which we loved. The location is perfect and in a great part of town. You can walk everywhere and Calle Reforma is not too busy like some of the other streets in town. Reception are very helpful but communication is in spanish (its ok even if you have bad spanish!). We had a load of washing done also which was very cheap and came back in a couple of hours. We paid 850 pesos for a queen room in February which is very reasonable for such a great hotel. We would stay here again and will recommend it to our friends. It's also next door to the best restaurant (in our humble opinion) in Oaxaca city - 'La Olla'. Which you will find difficult to stay away from if you sleep here! Happy holiday in this fantastic city!
