“Avoid at all cost”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

The only favorable point of this hotel is its location. From the moment of our arrival the shortcomings began. The person at the front desk couldn't figure it out how to charge the internet booking agency we used and insisted on charging us for the whole stay at a higher rate than the one we had booked, after arguing with the manager we agreed to pay the original rate since they insisted on not having received our payment, hours later my wife checked in internet that the charge was indeed made and we had to spend more time to get refunded. The room we got was a disgrace! I can't believe this hotel claims to be 4 stars. The size of the room was barely that of a single room so was the bed; the walls paper thin, you could hear people on the corridor and on the adjacent rooms (and boy they were loud!). The bathroom also tiny, the shower covered with mold, the shower stood apart by a curtain but the hot water handle laid on top of the toilet. After having a shower the whole bathroom got soaked. Do yourself a favor and avoid booking this hotel.

NOISY, NOISY. This should be the only name for this hotel. Unhelpful staff, awfull rooms without outside windows, bathroom with a lousy shower and broken sink. You can hear all the noise from the other rooms and corridors. When we wanted to complain at 12.30 during the night, because some people made a lots of noise, at the reception nobody did care, and a very rude guide was
threatening us and was coming too close to me. Again no reaction from the person at the reception desk.
Very poor breakfast - in three days - three different versions of eggs, cooked badly.
The only good characteristic of this hotel is it;s location, but there are plenty of other hotels nearby.
Very dissapointed. The only one very bad hotel we stayed at in Mexico.

Just a couple of blocks away from the main square this hotel is in an excellent location as a base for exploring the beautiful town of Oaxaca and its surroundings. Stayed here as part of a pre-arranged group tour so have no idea about prices or value for money, but strikes me this would be an acceptable budget hotel. A few niggles - safe in room didn't work, rooms were very noisy, particularly when there was a function on, and all in need of a serious refurb, but for a couple of nights it did the job.

We booked this hotel after quite a few other options turned out to be full. It wasn't exactly cheap and the first room we were shown had no outside window - just a window on to a corridor. To be fair, they agreed to change the room and the second option was much better, overlooking the pool and next to the restaurant. However, owing to the proximity to the restaurant, it was very noisy. In addition, the bathroom sink had a sewage smell rising from it (although this seems not uncommon for Mexico). Some positives included the fact that a baby sitter was available for 100 pesos per hour and there was also room service. In fact, service was very good in the hotel. On the other hand, the restaurant options were rather limited and breakfast was not included.

Room Tip: Beware of rooms with no outside window.

In a very busy weekend, we visited one of the best places in Mexico: Oaxaca!
The hotel Is 1 block from the very downtown so when you want to sleep you find mo noise at all... Breakfast is very cheap and very good quality. We booked 4 rooms for the family and my daughters complained about the bathrooms... They were a little bit cold. Pillows? - Pillows are too high and feels like rocks.
Overall, i think it's a good option given the price and location. I'll certainly would recommend and come back myself, so of course would bring my own pillow!

We were forced to stay here for a night as we arrived to Oaxaca a day earlier than anticipated. While the location was great, we were underwhelmed by the service, the bathroom did not function (shower flooding into the bedroom).

Definitely a decent enough stay for budget or spartan travelers, but not recommended for those seeking more pleasant accommodations.
