“Great hotel for sightseeing for a few days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is well situated in oaxaca. Just a few minutes walk from the Zocalo. When we arrived we got a nice welcome drink. Rooms are big and clean. The rest of the hotel is also very clean. Staff is nice. Pool is rather small. We had breakfast with a big group, so we all got served the same dishes: fruit with yogurt and muesli. Next dish was bread with eggs and the bean thingy.. So it was alright. Sleep quality was very good.

Very convenient to the Zocalo. A clean budget hotel. WiFi is pretty weak and works mainly in common pool and lobby area.

Watch out for mosquitos. Definitely got bit repeatedly in pool area while using the WiFi.

The hotel is location is quite good, just a few blocks away from the Zocalo. The rooms were big enough as was the bathroom. The sleep quality was good and the room was clean and neat.

Wireless Internet is available and there is a restaurant upstairs, never used it so cannot comment. I liked there pool and yes the restaurant do deliver to the pool.

There are ATM's just down the road and most of the attractions/museums are with walking distance.

Room Tip: All the rooms are at the back and are quite.

Oaxaca is one of most friendly town in Mexico. Hotel is located in central town, very close to main attraction: Benito Juarez house, Santo Domingo church, Zocalo and so one. On the right side to Zocalo direction from hotel is small bakery with big choice of pastry. On the market you can tray eat "chiapullines" or chocolate. Very close from hotel, on the top of hills is located Zapotecas ceremony place Monte Alban.

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.
