We just returned from Oaxaca. What a charming place!. We rented the two level casita at Casa de Abuelos. It was great as we could make our own breakfast every morning. and there was a frig to store our beer and soda. The staff was extremely helpful. I love that there was a fan in the upstairs bedroom and with the open window it was so comfortable at night. The kitchen was well supplied and user friendly. It was such a cute, wonderful place we will return on our next trip!
I stayed at La casa de los Abuelos for 6 weeks last summer. Every part of my experience was wonderful! The location really can't be beat and the rooms are lovely, clean, and well-maintained. I loved having my own little apartment so that I could cook my own meals and save some money while traveling abroad. The owners are very friendly and helpful - they even drove me to the bus station with my luggage so I didn't have to make the trek or call a taxi. Everything truly exceeded my expectations!
We were only able to stay at Casa de los Abuelos for 3 nights, but would definitely return for a longer visit. Our 2 story unit at the back was quiet, spotless, and well-equipped. Loved the decoration and homey feeling of our apartment. We only prepared breakfasts there, because there wasn't time to invest in serious cooking. But had we wanted to, the kitchen had everything we would have needed, along with pretty dishes to eat on. I appreciated the unending supply of potable water right in the kitchen. Our hosts were very warm and accommodating and the location was perfect (close to the Oaxaca Lending Library which we recommend to English speakers who run out of books!) Can't think of any negatives to report, and we didn't even know there was a new rooftop deck -…
This place has a number of suites opening on to a small courtyard. The suites provide sleeping on a second floor above a ground level where there is a kitchen, a stable and some seating and which opens out to the court. The hosts are exceedingly friendly and helpful. There is, as well a pleasant, friendly dynamic established amongst the guests because of the shared courtyard and because many guests come to stay here repeatedly. The Casa is positioned in the historic core next to Santo Domingo.
I stayed at La Casa De Los Abuelos for the second time in December 2012. I stayed in the apartment that used to house the padre for the Santo Domingo Cathedral. Filled with local art, very cozy, and quiet, even though on a rather busy street. They have added a wonderful rooftop patio with a view of the church and surrounding city - We were treated so well by Rosa, Ita, and Luis - they helped us with logistics for our excursions. It is an easy walk to the center of things - the Alcala, Zocolo, botanical garden - an excellent location. I will stay there when I return, hopefully this year. This is not a luxury hotel, so if you are wanting the typical Western hotel experience, this is not it.
