“Oaxaca Real Oaxaca Mexico”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

This is a very beautiful hotel that gives you the real feeling of a fine traditional hotel. We left the way more expensive sleek and modern Holiday inn to stay here. The Oaxaca Real has their own restaurant that is also open to the public. It has wonderful authentic Oaxacan comida. You can ask for a special discount and they are very accommodating...you can ask to skip breakfast and they give a discount...but they offer American and typical Oaxacan breakfasts including coffee or juice or tea and the inclusive price is great. They are only three blocks away from the Zocalo and very close to everything. Right now they have mostly Mexico City guests and Europeans and they are normally not too busy. Almost half price from the holiday inn.. I'm American and I loved it.

We spent 3 night there, it is a nice hotel close to downtown, one block from touristic walk area, close to Santo Domingo Convent and also from Zocalo.
It is not a fancy hotel but it has an excellent location.
We really had a good time there.

We did not book this hotel, it was a change to an itinerary we were not made aware of and was not the same standard of other hotels.
Difficult to access plugs for charging as high up, restaurant breakfast service a bit poor- ignored first day. Had a choice of eggs or pancakes, fruit or fruit juice.
Very small towels.
No air con - unable to open window in bathroom as too high, window in room frosted and opened onto a corridor. Rooms very dark.
Bathroom - a bit slippy
The hotel is basic with a small outdoor pool, terrace restaurant, good location 2 minutes from zocalo. For a basic hotel - acceptable but still poor service. Some staff don't speak Spanish or English making some communication even more difficult.

A good hotel in an excellent location only a few blocks from city centre. Helpful staff. There is a pool but I didn't try it. Other guests coming in late or leaving early was very disturbing, the walls are thin.
+ Beautiful hotel with lots of charm.
- Thin walls makes the place noisy. Restaurant (breakfast) can not be recommended.

Room Tip: Choose room as far away from reception as possible.

We stayed four days. The people were very attentive and the location is perfect. It is a great hotel for the price and this is a city to explore and not to stay at the hotel, so the rooms are small but that was of no importancebecause we were out all day. Location is perfectly situated between both main plazas. I even ran into Rick Bayless outside the hotel. We had a bit of trouble with a tour and the hotel fixed it for us and even offer to pay for it. That is good service.
The city charmed us beyond our expectations so we will be back and im sure we will stay here again.

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.
