Hotel Azul is an ideal place to stay. The location is perfect - it is central to all the action but also a quiet refuge. The staff is friendly and accommodating and handled all of my needs. The property is beautiful and comfortable. I will definitely be back !

Hotel Azul is such a wonderful gem in the heart of old Oaxaca. It's absoloutely gorgeous, tastefully and stylishly designed. All the rooms are comfortable, spacious, and beautiful. The staff were terrific, and the food was great. Literally a minutes walk from the center of Oaxaca, where there are too many wonderful restaurants, boutique clothing shops, and precious art galleries... More

Really great service from staff - very helpful! Beautiful hotel patios, common areas, and outdoor dining areas, and very clean modern rooms. Very thin floors, so sound could be a problem, but didn't bother us. Great location so you can walk to all the central destinations. Definitely would stay here again and recommend to friends.

A reviewer notes, "One of the best hotels in Mexico…." Well that's kind, but a bit of a stretch. It's a nice hotel but hardly one of the best. Decor is minimal and tasteful.
