Casa Panchita
Ranked #14 of 130 Oaxaca B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 20, 2011

Casa Panchita was recommended to us by a friend. We were extremely happy with our experience there. Irma, Alejandro and sons along with Panchita made our visit to Oaxaca one of our best trips. The food was terrific, the ambiance lovely. Everything we needed for our time in the area was available through their generous knowledge and willingness to help. Everyone we met there were both friendly and interesting. We will definitely go back.

Casa Panchita had been recommended by a friend, so we decided to try it on our last visit to Oaxaca rather than return to our usual B&B. We were delighted and will return. First the setting: the gardens and patio are gorgeous. Next, the rooms, spotless and beautifully decorated with Mexican folk art. Next, the food, excellent. And finally, the hosts, warm, welcoming and eager to make sure you have a good time. And you will.

I have been staying at Casa Panchita since the early 80's, at least once a year and sometimes more than once. It has all the comforts of home and none of the responsibilities. There are 6 extremely comfortable rooms fronting a lovely garden. The daily rate comes with full breakfast and all meals are available. It is family run and Panchita is the matriarch of the family and does all the cooking. There is no better cuisine in Oaxaca. Irma, Panchita's daughter and her husband, Alejandro, handle all the business affairs. One quickly becomes a "member" of the family. Each room has a bookcase of books available to the guests. Folk art is found everywhere in the compound........rooms, garden, dining room, terrace, etc. Excellent guides and tours can be recommended. It is a 20-30 minute walk to the zocalo. It is located in the Xochimilco colonia with the 16th century aqueduct forming a wall in the pool area. This is a jewel in a jewel of a city and a jewel of an area.

Room Tip: Graden room for size. Studio room for garden view.

I love this place! My husband and I have stayed at Casa Panchita on several visits to Oaxaca. We’ve tried other places and always return here, for the people we meet and the service we receive. Casa Panchita opens a door to authentic Oaxacan art and cuisine. Rooms are homey, spotless, and filled with creative art from this colorful region. A family atmosphere prevails at meals, and on the central patio where we inevitably meet interesting travelers and glean tips for the next day’s explorations. Panchita’s food delivers the rich flavors of Oaxaca, and is prepared with care to freshness and health. Alejandro and Irma grew up here and are endlessly resourceful in arranging anything from tour guides to laundry service.
