I stayed at Las Mariposas for 16 days. The studio was in the back courtyard and was very quiet (although some guests were very noisy). The room was nice, comfortable and clean. The bed was large and cozy, the shower was good. When I arrived Beth was at the reception, she was nice and gave good tips of places to go and eat (I don't know if she still works there). It is a good place to stay if you're on a budget, the prices are reasonable and the hotel is simple but pleasant. Don't expect much from the breakfast, it is very basic, so if you like to eat well in the mornings (I do) it is better to eat somewhere else. The maid service was good and Lucila was lovely, but my suggestion is that they begin to do the cleaning later. Sometimes I did not want or need to wake up early but they knocked on my door or made noise next to the room. During my stay the hotel started doing some maintanance work and it was a little noisy and uncomfortable unfortunately. The smell from the painting on the stone wall next to my room was strong for several days.
The hotel is well located: just 1/2 block from Llano Park and a few walk from the historical center. If you like pets there is a nice dog called Tita, but if you don't it is not a problem because she doesn't bother the guests.
Oaxaca is a lovely city and as a woman solo traveller I felt safe walking alone even in the night.
