After my visit in April and the controversy on the booking with booking.com that included breakfast I trusted the owner that it was all just a big mistake by booking.com. OK, so I returned with my family last week. I'll cover the rooms later on, so let me start with the breakfast issue. On booking.com the only booking option was... More

Hotel Las Mariposas is very nice little hotel. The rooms are very nice and clean. I liked the patio and the way the rooms are located. It was quite unique for me. They are trying to be Eco-friendly! Stuff is very friendly. I was only missing a better breakfast.

This place has the potential to be amazing. But for the moment it's just a little short of that. On the plus side: it's beautiful, the staff is friendly, the location is great (close to sights, and safe), and the bathrooms are clean. The negative: pretty awful breakfast. A little more effort into it and it could go a long... More

This hotel is in a great location. Especially as the Zocalo area was taken over by tents/protesters, this was far enough away from that and near a bunch of tourist sites, as well as a beautiful park a block away. There's lots of little courtyards and nooks that feel semi-private and are great to rest for a while in between... More

A laid back hotel with totally different types of rooms meandering around some gardens. Kind of a budget hotel with no ac (fans included), free book exchange, coffee and bread in the mornings. Only a few blocks away from the central historic area so it is very convenient.

This is a very nice hotel that is centrally located. The rooms are comfortable, but quieter near the back of the property. Room 10 is in the back and has a sliding glass door for great ventilation. There are numerous comfortable places to sit/lounge outside.

Many rooms, all different, at this reasonably priced hotel in Oaxaca City. It's within a 10-15 minute easy walk to the zocala, and plenty of local restaurants nearby. Some rooms have kitchenettes; others don't. Some rooms are quite small; others plenty of room. The back courtyard has its own nice feel. Long stays are not at all uncommon, but either... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the standard at Las Mariposas. It was spotless and congratulations to them on leading the way with eco friendly practices. The courtyards were tranquil spots for a rest in a hammock, a little emailing, talking to others. Breakfast was in one of these courtyards. A very simple breakfast of brewed coffee and bread. I felt... More

The hotel was a really lovely relaxed place. It is quite spread out and there are lots of relaxation, lounge areas and tables in different parts of the hotel so you can have some privacy even in the common areas. The rooms don't really get any direct sunlight so you will probably want to sit outside during the day. The... More

This is a wonderful place. We spent eight nights there. There is breakfast every morning which brings together everyone staying there. We met several couples we hit it off with and ended up taking trips and tours with them. Most of the other guests were Canadian or American. Some of them were staying for long periods. One spent several months... More
