“Honeymoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

Love the reviews as they are veryhelpful but hopefully some reviewers give accurate information, the hotel has 6 rooms not 4, andit is true expensive doens't mean better that is the reasons for reviews so you as a customer in advance have an idea on what to expect and of course while in the hotel make sure everythign that was offered is on the contract. We spend 4 wonderful day in our honey moon in Casa catrina, breakfast was fine iwth us, we didn't want to spend the whole day inside a hotel, there are plenty of good places out there in Oaxaca. Service was great and we use the basement "bar" for a farewell party with some of our guest asther the wedding. Love the place, extra pay for privacy was worth it.

Room Tip: The Red room was great and we have a surprise welcome decoration with flores, fruits and some drinks

We spent 9 days at Casa Catrina for the Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Oaxaca. This is a lovely boutique hotel/B & B with only 6 rooms. Our room was wonderful (the Rojo suite), very clean, and we had excellent service. Full delicious breakfast was served each morning in the lovely inside courtyard. Our king size bed and down pillows were excellent. The staff is amazing and treated us with every kindness. Good location in a bustling area, about 7 blocks from the Zocolo. Great restaurants and shops abound. We hope to return again in a year or so and will try to stay again at Casa Catrina

Room Tip: Try to get a room with windows. A couple rooms are interior rooms.

This hotel is a small but very personal and detailed hotel, food is excellent, rooms are all different all very nice, service is excellent and very personalized. Very very close to all major attractions (walking distance). Hotel is secure and beds and linens are excellent quality. Spacious bathroom with hot water and AC for those very hot days.

Room Tip: Biggest room is the Red Room

For us like a family (3 kids) it's very important to have a nice and beautiful hotel. Otherwise vacacions won't be relaxing. At Casa Catrina we felt like home - even the kids. It was our 2nd stay there and we'll will regress for sure.

I loved this hotel. It was the perfect combination of Mexican style and atmosphere, with all the Western amenities and conveniences I like in a hotel. The service was personal and gracious. The location was great: close to the center where everything is, but on a nice, quieter street than some hotels. It was clean and everything seemed new and in great condition. I really couldn't have asked for more.

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of days. The hotel is very close to the main attractions. The staff is wonderfull and all of them show "customer focus".
The hotel doesn't have a main restaurant; however, it offers an excellent breakfast.
This is a classic boutique hotel with just 6 rooms, no restaurant, no swimming pool but great service.
Oaxaca is a City that offers excelent restaurants and great places to go, so you don't spend the day at the hotel.

Stayed here while visiting Oaxaca for the Days of the Dead celebrations. The hotel is well located, close enough to walk to everything, yet far enough away to allow for quiet. The rooms were comfortable and well maintained. English speaking staff attended to our every need and made our life simpler. Their warm and caring attitudes made them feel like family inspiring hugs all around when we left. The daily breakfasts were hearty, filling and delicious; a perfect way to start the day. When members of our party acquired travellers discomfort they offered up special food and drink which quickly put us back on our feet to enjoy all the town had to offer. Can't wait to stay with them again.
