4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

The helpful staff was attentive from check in, stored our bags on the last day while we traveled on the last day, and was great throughout. The rooms and shared bathroom was clean. There are private bathrooms as well.

The free coffee and wi-fi are nice touches as well. Located blocks from the Zocalo, this is an excellent place to stay.

The only downside is that the walls are minimally thin, which could be hard for very light sleepers.

Posada del Centro had an incredibley friendly and helpful staff; beautiful and clean courtyards, perfectly clean rooms with comfortable beds. Very comfortable. No bugs, clean fresh water, coffee in the morning. This hotel is perfect for anyone on a budget or even without a budget. The rooms have either private baths or shared (we shared a bath and walked across the courtyard for the bathroom) and it was still very nice. Very clean, kept up, not filled with people, good showers, no bugs. The rooms had ample space, closets. The staff helped us to understand everything we needed to know and even let us talk to them in Spanish (as they saw we really wanted to practice) and talked to us in perfect english only when we really needed. They were great and gave us an unbeatable deal. The place was perfect for a beer in the courtyard at sundown, quiet peace and a 3 minute walk to zocala, all transit, the bus stations for Mitla and Monte Alban...amazing. I would absolutely return and be delighted to stay with them.

Room Tip: ask about deals, no tips needed!

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of January. We had a lovely room on the ground floor on the inner courtyard. The staff were great and organized trips for us to Mitla and Monte Alban. Both trips were excellent. They also recommended Cafe Alex, down the street, for breakfast. If you are not very adventurous, Taco Inn (on the Zocalo) is a good place for lunch.

We stayed here for 3 nights and then came back for another 5 after a brief jaunt to the coast. The rooms are simple but very clean and the courtyard/lobby is beautiful, with lots of plants and colour.

The sevice was impeccable, all the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel offers a choice of single, double, twin, triple and quad rooms; with ensuite or shared bathrooms.

They also offer tours, laundry, coffee and biscuits and as many maps as you can handle! (About 1 per day!..there really is no refusing them)

I strongly reccommend this place - and only costs around £15/$30 a night!
