we spent a week at Las Mariposas and our stay exceeded our expectations. There are 20 rooms, some with a small kitchen in the corner of the room including refrigerator, pots, dishes and utensils. There is also a shared refrigerator and microwave in the courtyard. The room was spotless and the two courtyards were kept tidy. The location is perfect for walking to the many sights in old town Oaxaca. We made reservations on-line with Lucia who was very helpful to us and made us feel quite at home during our stay.

The place is in a good position, clean and spacious. The price is all right for what it is but rooms are dark due to few and small windows. I had no problem with all of that but the staff is unfriendly and not really motivated.

When we were checking out staff members came by twice to remind us that we have to check out by midday even though it was not even eleven yet and we told them that we were packing already.

In the end I forgot my charished and expensive downy feather pillow in the room by mistake. When I realized and came back for it the next morning to ask for it the told me that they had already thrown it in the garbage and there was no way to give it back. Worst thing was that they did not even say sorry or seem to care at all. I did not feel very welcome overall and I felt like they wanted us to come pay and then get lost again as soon as possible.

Room Tip: There are many other options at this price range.

Very basic hotel but good value for money ($500 MXP per night per room). The owner very attentive. Coffee and bread in the mornings. No parking but possible to park on the street, which is very busy during the day and therefore, hard to find a place before 8:30PM.

Oaxaca is an absolutely lovely city. I stayed at Las Mariposas for 2 nights. The hotel is very clean and is well-located, near the centre of the city and the bus station. The staff was kind. The breakfast is ok.

I think my comment above covers really all I need say. Oaxaca is a wonderful town but to stay in this haven adds to the stay. It is situated not right in the centre , which is a bonus, but ten minutes walk from the Zocalo and 5 from st. Domingo. The owners are so helpful and kind and it makes a difference knowing that this house has been in the family for generations. Do book in advance being my only suggestion. No one should miss staying here even if they are just passing through Oaxaca

We stayed 8 days at Las Mariposas. Coffee plus bread and peanut butter (or cake) served at 8 am in flagstone courtyard with fountain. There must have been 7 or 8 people working there, all very friendly and comfortable with tourists. For some reason, nearly all the other guests were non-Mexican -- German, Dutch, US, so the conversation around the breakfast tables was in English. The hostess, Teresa, an elegant and formidable lady, has all the connections (including Spanish teachers) at her fingertips. Great location; walk to bus station, Zocalo, Mercados, Santo Domingo. Women with samples of the carpets woven out in Teotitlan come several times a week to display and hopefully, sell.

Room Tip: No pool or restaurant. Rooms in inner courtyards quieter; there are a lot of churches in the nieghb...

Stayed 3 nights in mid Sept.
- Everything is VERY clean for a hotel in this price range... I even saw them cleaning behind some bookshelves in a common hallway the first day.
- Staff is very helpful and friendly.
- Our initial room faced a courtyard with quite a few mosquitos... and there was gap between the screen frame and the window frame. We asked to change rooms and they accommodated us immediately, no problem. We were able to move our stuff into the new room first thing in the morning when we asked.
- We booked the Monte Alban tour with them and the guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Van that took us there was brand new.

Two small complaints:
- The common spaces get very dark at night, due to very dim eco-friendly lighting (once I went to get water at 6 am and literally all the lights were off). I don't think it would be too damaging to the environment to make things just a bit brighter.
- The breakfast ends at 9:30 and one day we were in time but there was not enough bread for both of us. Coffee is also not very hot, and quite weak.

Room Tip: Check the window screen before settling in. Mosquitoes in the courtyard.
