Carlos, the hotel manager, is indefatigable in his determination to ensure that guests are well looked after and their needs attended to. His staff is likewise friendly and helpful. The hotel itself lies a pleasant short walk from Santo Domingo church and many of the better restaurants in town. The beds are comfortable and the rooms and premises are kept... More

I love this hotel and the quality is far superior than any Holiday Inn Express in the United States. The supervisor/manager (Manuel) is very attentive and the staff as well. They want to make sure you have s good time and fulfill your expectations. The hotel is strategically located in the middle of everything in downtown Oaxaca. I highly recommend... More

My husband and I stayed here 4 nights and had a wonderful experience. The manager is very attentive. The breakfast is very good. The staff were very hospitable, helping us with dinner reservations, and even giving us a breakfast box to go when we checked out early in the morning. The location is a bit away from the zócalo but... More

My husband and I just returned from a 9 day stay in Oaxaca for our son's wedding. The Holiday Inn Oaxaca was where many of the out of town guests stayed. Easy walk to all the sites and located on a nice quiet street near a very cute park. The breakfast buffet has something for everyone - hot foods, cold... More

"Dia de los Muertos", or Day of the Dead in Oaxaca, Mexico, is an epic adventure that belongs on every world traveler's bucket list. A great base of operations, charming and cheap by U.S. standards, is the centrally-located Holiday Inn Express. The big attraction for us was the General Manager, Carlos. He lives large, and really cares about each guest.... More

When the Boutique Hotel we booked "lost" our reservations we booked here. Really glad that happened. The Manager Carlos really makes this place. The location is close enough to be central but quiet (five blocks down the pedestrian street to the Zocolo).
