We stayed during easter at the QUinta Real Oaxaca, which is located in an old Spanish Convent, THe building is very well mantained in general with pretty central gardens. The bathrooms need an upgrade, The best thing is the central location that permits you to walk to most things downtown. THe breakfast buffet is good. THe only incident we had is when we arrived we could not get the rooms we had reserved, a family of four, they put our rooms very far away which made it difficult to enjoy... THe attitude of Mr. J form the reception was very arrogant as well. The rest of the employees there were very nice...

Room Tip: Ask for INSIDE rooms as the others are very noisy since they have windows to the streets. If you are travelling with children requests rooms that are next to each other or at least on the same corridor, otherwise you end up on the other side and it is scary for the kids at night.

Stayed for 4 nights over Easter. Great position and the courtyards and buildings very atmospheric. The owners need to visit other restored heritage properties around the world to see what others provide for this price. It is generally a bit run down and tired. Service very patchy. Paid extra for an internally facing room as we were told the external ones can be noisy. As mine turned out to be overlooking the pool it was certainly noisy during the day! Room satisfactory. Breakfasts mediocre compared to other hotels in Mexico we have stayed in. Don't know if this is the best in Oaxaca but its certainly the most expensive. Oaxaca itself is charming and a delight to visit.

We stayed here for five nights in March. Identified as the second convent in New Spain, built in the 16th century, the hotel served as a school, movie theater and prison before being renovated for tourism in the 1970s. The building deserves its reputation for being beautiful, and the landscaping is fantastic. Our room was rather small, but perfectly pleasant, very clean, and well appointed. I thought our small window was fused shut, but when I asked if there were rooms with windows that open, the desk clerk assured me that they all open and sent someone up to demonstrate. The outside rooms have some street noise, but it seemed very modest. Other rooms probably had better light with larger windows.
There is no elevator, so second floor rooms involve stairs, some of them pretty steep...good practice for Monte Alban...
The pool is beautiful, the pool bar is very pleasant. Breakfast is varied and should serve anyone's taste, although they are not always ready by 7 a.m., more like 7:20. When I mentioned that the chilaquiles were missing, they rushed to get them out.
The Quinta Real is in an excellent location, just a few blocks from the zocalo and about 2 from Santo Domingo.
My one huge disappointment was the lack of free wifi anywhere in the hotel, an unprecedented inconvenience. 139 pesos for 24 hours.
The hotel staff helped us with all our needs and were quick with suggestions for good restaurants in the area.

This is a very well maintained colonial religous building in a very centric site. Actually most attractions in Oaxaca are well within walking distance.
The only bad thing is that if you want WiFi in your room you have to pay for it! Hotel managers should get by now the idea that free Wi Fi is pretty much a necessesity like hot water! One should not have to pay extra for it, especially not in such a good hotel!

We were big fans of this property before this last visit and not sure we'll return next time since there are more options. Our room was average and quiet, next to a beautiful courtyard. We could not believe when we say them set up for a banquet on the lawn RIGHT outside of all the rooms in that corridor. The fiesta started at 9:30 and was NOISY, finally ending at 1AM. The front desk was oblivious to our calls. This is a huge property and there are lots of alternative locations for this kind of a banquet so this was an example of truly incompetent planning. To add salt to the wound, we asked for a wake-up call the next morning at 5:30 AM to catch our flight - we got a call at 4:30 AM!!! Argghhh@#!$! They were indifferent to our complaints the next morning - we left a long letter for the manager thinking we'd hear something. TOTAL silence. It's a shame since it's a beautiful setting but likely our last time there
