We stayed in the Corazon room for 5 nights, which together with the Luna room we think are the best options in the hotel. On arrival we were offered a different room, right beside the kitchen, which we found too small and stuffy. Our complaint was immediately resolved and we were moved to another room. The staff were always friendly... More

This is a great place to stay. I had the pleasure to stay at both locations. Libres is lovely but the newer place at Boca del Monte is really special. It has a beautiful courtyard, the colours are amazing and it's in a great location near the centre. Libres is also in a convenient location, just a little further to... More

A fanstastic B&B with a very authentic feel, kind staff and an awesome breakfast which changes each day. In a great location too, very easy walk to the town centre and close to nice restaurants and mezcal bars. My husband had been feeling unwell before we arrived in Oaxaca, and continued to feel sick for several days, but the staff... More

We stayed at the newer location, El Diablo y la Sandia Boca del Raton. We were very happy with the location. I had asked for a room at the back to avoid street noise, and we were in Rosa which was very quiet. The patio, terrace and grounds were all lovely. Breakfasts were delicious, different each day (as well as... More

a wonderfully bright and friendly atmosphere with a great breakfast. The courtyard has a big table where everyone sits at - giving you a chance to exchange travel advice with other guests! We loved the idea and found it helped us experience Oaxaca! Thank you to the team for making our stay so comfortable

I stayed here in January 2012. This place was wonderful in every way. The location is good, close to everything but not too close. The owner was great, helpful and hospitable and friendly. The food was good. The rooms were great in terms of value and feel. It had a great vibe. Yes. I will return at some point.

We spent 2 nights there ... it looks like a dollhouse. Maria (the owner) is the sweetest person, very helpful, she gave us good advice etc. Extremely clean and each room has its own style. Just love IT

We stayed at El Diablo y La Sandia Boca Del Monte, which is several blocks away from the original B&B on Libres. For some reason TA doesn't have these split out into two separate reviews. Don't be stupid like us and go to the wrong hotel when you fly in! Anyway, we greatly enjoyed our stay here. We were in... More
