We just returned from Oaxaca City (Oaxaca de Juarez) where we spent eight wonderful days. The Hotel Florida where we stayed contributed quite a bit to the success of our visit. The owner/mgrs. Blanca and her husband and the staff are great. They welcomed us as if we were part of their family! Blanca is intelligent and charming, speaks good English, very accommodating, and knowledgeable about the town and surroundings.
We had two front rooms, spotless. They were well furnished, good storage space, with comfortable beds. The maids clean the apartments, changing the linen, on a daily basis. The room has cable TV, with Spanish and English channels. Every morning free bottled water are supplied to the room. It is safe to leave your valuables in the room. The only access to the building is through the front door, which always has someone there. Just in front of our room there was a nice roof top area with table and chairs (good area for your Happy hours) with a good view of the surroundings, especially at nighttime. The hotel did not have parking space for our rental car; we left it in the street at daytime, when exploring the town, and at the opposite guarded parking at night (50 pesos). The hotel is a few blocks south of the center square (the Zocalo) , a couple of blocks away from the 20 Noviembre and Juarez markets, and also a few blocks from the Mercado de Artesanias (handicrafts). The 20 Noviembre market has a number of Comedorias, small eateries where you can enjoy a good selection of the famous Oaxaca cuisine, such as the Tlayudas. The hotel has an attached small restaurant that served tasty breakfasts, with a selection of American and Mexican dishes. Lunch and dinner is also available. Wi-Fi and laundry service was available too.
As we started saying we really liked the place. Good location, nice rooms, clean and safe, wonderful breakfasts, and above all a super friendly and welcoming staff. We hope to return to Oaxaca and, when we do, we will book the Hotel Florida again.
