I stayed at Casa Colonial July 21 -28, 2012. The weekend I arrived and during the week I was there, Oaxaca was a buzz with nightly activites in connection with the annual Guelaguetza Dance Festival. The Casa is centrally located with a Supermarket and Bank to exchange currency right around the corner. I was travelling alone and found Oaxaca to be quite safe to walk the streets. The Casa is truly a place of tranquility. The rooms were cleaned daily and breakfast was served promptly at 8am with the ringing of the bell. There is a library with something for everyone and for the novel readers, there are books in English for your reading pleasure. For those of who must bring work with them or have to constantly check emails, there is free wi-fi. The Casa also had an ample supply of purified water for drinking and to brush your teeth. There is also a hot water cooler to make tea/coffee all hours of the day and night and also a fridge to store and keep your drinks cold.
