Lorena, the hostess, helped me recover my lost phone - an example of hospitality beyond the call of duty. We stayed in the studio apartment a block and a half away from the main house Even so, we joined other guests for delicious breakfasts daily.
I loved staying at this beautiful and friendly inn. Oaxaca was bustling for Day of the Dead, and Estancia de Valencia was quiet and comfortable. The Innkeeper Lorena was lovely, advising us on outings, and providing a delicious breakfast. We enjoyed the courtyard and garden, as well.
We stayed at Estancia de Valencia with our 15month old daughter this past February. Lorena was a wonderful host who welcomed us into her beautiful home and treated us with warmth, kindness, and generosity. The meals were absolutely delicious and filling. Each morning the table was beautifully set in traditional Oaxacan embroidered linens. The room was comfortable and clean and they even accommodated us by providing a crib for our baby. Lorena helped to organize transportation to outside towns and we found all city sights to be within walking distance. We had the most wonderful visit and we can't wait to go back.
We arrived at 8:30 AM after a very early flight from Mexico City. We were greeted by the owner, Lorena Santos Cruz. She invited us to join the other guests for breakfast. From that moment we knew we had selected the best place in Oaxaca. Senora Lorena was so hospitable. Her attention to detail is evident in every detail. The bed and breakfast is beautifully decorated. The inside living area and outdoor patio are very inviting. We stayed 5 nights in the B&B and 4 nights in the studio. Both locations are outstanding. We do not hesitate recommending Estancia de Valencia.
Lorena the host was an angel when my husband was sick during our stay. She and her husband took us for medical care and Lorena later took me to the market, pharmacy, and for chicken soup. Her gracious kindness was above and beyond our expectations. Our room was a beautiful and quiet retreat during an anxious time. Lorena and her helper Malena made sure we had juice and tea in our room and went out of their way to make us as comfortable as possible.
