“Mixed Bag”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

GOOD POINTS:
- Great location
- Some friendly staff
- elegant rooms
- nice breakfast

BAD POINTS
- Overpriced for what you get
- noisy rooms
- at this price (for mexico) breakfast should be included.

The hotel could be great, but our room was particularly noisy. The closet had some equipment in it that hummed and vibrated all night. The courtyard amplifies the noise of other guests returning late, and if you are downstairs, you can hear people moving around upstairs.

The staff were great, and the location is awesome. Even though the breakfast was good, don't bother - there are plenty of options within walking distance.

Room Tip: avoid room 103! very noisy.

Hello, thank you for your review, right now we are working on the vibrating noise inside the closet wall, it was the water pipes from the under ground tank to the filters, unfortunately we can't post pictures but we are changing all the pipes far away from the rooms, so there will be no more noise at any time, the job will be done by the end of january 2013.

About the noise from the central courtyard to the ground floor level rooms, we change the wood windows to soundproof double glass pvc windows, I promise you that we will do something with the rooms door so the noise will not get to the bedroom.

Thank you for your review, it is one of the best ways to improve our facilities and service, hope to see you soon in Oaxaca.

From the street looks very small, we were walking around the Zocalo when we saw it, we move the next day, small private pool at the back, the staff smiles and tries to help with local recommendations, small buffet breakfast with eggs, pancakes,, tamales, chilaquiles and cereals.

I do recommend this hotel, best location in town, room was very clean, big bathroom with shower, no tub, free WiFi, the rate might be a little higher than other Oaxaca hotels, but it worth to pay 20USD for the location, clean rooms and friendly staff

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are sunny

The hotel was a great addition to our experience in Oaxaca. It was roomy, clean and very well located. But most of all, the staff was so overly accommodating. They also arranged for tours outside the city and their recommendations were excellent. The staff also spoke english which was helpful.

Colonial mansion in the center of the city, right off the zocalo, a few step away from main tourist spots, small pool at the back, delicious breakfast buffet, comfortable room, 42" LCD HD CableTV, we bought a honey moon package from their web page, 3 days in Oaxaca and 3 in Puerto Escondido, we paid about MxN$20,000.00 and got a lot of things, tours, dinners, massage, air transportation from Oaxaca to Puerto Escondido, etc. A really good deal, definitely one of the best hotels in Colonial Mexico.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade at the frontdesk, if they have a room available they will give it to you

I spent three nights at this charming boutique hotel about a block from Oaxaca's busy main square (Zocalo). My room was spacious and comfortable, and featured air conditioning and cable TV. The hotel, in a remodeled colonial building, is very well maintained, and the staff is friendly and courteous. The breakfast buffet was delicious—the same basics like coffee and oaxacan hot chocolate and fresh-squeezed orange juice, but different buffet dishes every day. Crispy quesadillas with the stringy oaxacan cheese and a bit of fresh epazote. Chewy chicharrón in green sauce. Chilaquiles with black beans. Different kinds of tamales. Dense, rich pasilla chile sauce was the condiment of choice. Friends staying at another hotel decided to join me for breakfast every day. The staff offered special attention for a sick child and made sure that my friends could warm a baby bottle whenever they needed to. The pool looked lovely but we were so busy exploring Oaxaca we didn't have a chance to try it out. I recommend this hotel highly.

Hotel de la Parra is a small hotel conveniently located in the centre of Oaxaca, 1 block away from the Zocalo and walking distance from the charming "tourist corridor". The hotel is a colonial house nicely renovated, even has a small pool. While hotel does not have a garage, it has a convenient arrangement with a garage a block away from the hotel. People at the hotel are friendly and helpful, also free WIFI in room is an additional bonus. While rooms were comfortable, they are small for US standards and also a bit dark, both during the day and at night, as windows are small and additional light was not enough. Although breakfast was not included in my room package, it was served daily in the patio for a very reasonable price. Overall, a good stay at the Hotel de la Parra.

The hotel is right off the Zocalo corner (no need to walk more than 5 blocks to visit all the main city attractions), once inside a quiet atmosphere surrounds the hotel, at the back an intimate patio with a small pool, lounges, palm trees a bar with couches, the perfect place to get away, read and take a nap, the staff told me they will be opening a small spa by Christmas, superb idea. Rooms are ok, clean bathrooms, bathrobes, safe in room, buffet breakfast for only $80 pesos, I will definitely stay at DeLa Parra on my next trip to Oaxaca
