You'll be very happy if you stay here on a visit to Oaxaca - it's a lovely old building with very friendly and helpful staff and a nice line in relaxed hospitality which shows in the notes for guests and in any chat with Donna or her colleagues. The roof garden is special with its view over the city plus (on Monday mornings anyway) a serenade from the school opposite at morning assembly of the Mexican national anthem, which is a lot jollier than ours.
It's only helpful - we hope - to look for what some people might consider downsides, and we didn't quite go for 5 stars cos the rooms might be thought a bit small and darkish by some and there could be a problem if others stay up late on the roof or leave early for flights etc and make a bit too much noise (probably without realising it, cos all our fellow guests were really nice and added to the pleasure of staying).
The staff are excellent with info, eg on catching the Monte Alban bus just down the hill, and the town centre is only a five/ten minut stroll. Thanks very much indeed to Donna and everyone for a great couple of days. Oh, and we much enjoyed trying to manage the sitting-up-in-bed-to-read hatches in the headboards; one of those small details which will probably linger in the memory even when we get old(er) and dotty.
