Hotel Boutique De La Parra
Ranked #37 of 109 Hotels in Oaxaca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 16, 2005

This hotel has a lot going for it, and the staff were gracious and well meaning. There is not, however, a full understanding of the needs of foreigners; evident in both a significant language barrier (surpringly little english spoken) and a general cultural disconnect. Rooms are simple and elegant, but tend to be dark, and there is a wonderful tranquility throughout; why they would choose to pipe rather nasty dance music into the coutryards at siesta time is beyond my understanding. Bed and bathroom were very clean.

My wife and I spent a week at Hotel de la Parra in February 2005. The hotel went out of their way to make us comfortable, including enhancing the bathroom to aid my mobility impared wife. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Best of all the hotel is one block from the Zocalo, though very quiet and peaceful within! Beautiful pool area too.
We would highly recommend the hotel to those looking for a high quality, fair priced and centrally located hotel in Oaxaca.

This nice and quiet hotel is lovely with little courtyard and pool, our room was nicely decorated and immacultely clean. Excellent breakfast is served every morning with tamales and chilaquiles. Osbelia assist us in finding our way around the city, arranging transportation to Monte Alban, Mitla, the airport or directing us to special places we wanted to visit, we were truly friendly welcome at our charming Oaxaca hacienda hotel

One can say all the nice things they want about this hotel, but when you have ALL your cash stolen from the safe in your room, well I think everyone should avoid these BANDITOS! I informed the hotel manager and NOTHING was done for me. Oaxaca is beautiful, but please do not put yourself or loved ones at risk by staying in this hotel.

We stayed at the La Parra late November, 2004. Everyone was extremely kind and pleasant, and our room was very comfortable, complete with yummy soft cotton robes. However, do not expect the
staff here to speak or understand English! I believe most of the mix-ups people have reported may be language related. Most of the employees have a smattering of English, but not enough to trust accurate communication. This hotel is quite beautiful, and in a wonderful location if you enjoy the Zocolo. It is also within walking distance of museums, shops, and most everything of interest...We
loved it!

My wife and I stayed at Hotel De LA Parra in November 2004. After I had already booked our room, I found this website. It showed several differing opinions about this hotel. I was a little worried because we were arriving at 11:00 p.m. on a Saturday night, and lost reservations were some of the complaints. I should not have worried. Our upstairs room with king bed was reserved as per our request. Also, our luggage didn't arrive with us on our flight from Mexico City. The next morning (Sunday) the young lady at the fromt desk made several calls to Aeromexico trying to locate our missing bags. We went to eat and look around the area and when we returned to our room at about 3:00, our luggage was in our room. We had a very nice room with a sitting area right outside overlooking the pool. The hotel is 1/2 block from the zocalo, so the location was perfect. I give this hotel a very positive rating.

After booking this in June and confirming in August, this hotel had no record of our reservation when we arrived for Day of the Dead in October. This was a huge problem, as we had booked 3 rooms because we were 8 women. The woman at the hotel sent us to 2 alternate properties, both horribly substandard, and I spent the first night of my bachelorette party searching for accommodations for my 7 guests. The hotel didn't even give the others drinks while they were waiting, or pay for my taxi as I went from hotel to hotel trying to find room. (It turns out that they had booked us new rooms that were more than 3 months late on being completed and hadn't bothered to tell us before we left.) I highly recommend staying elsewhere. These people deserve to fail in business and have a respectable owner come in and run this place.
