Reviewed March 2, 2013

I chose this hotel because of the reviews in tripadvisor and was not disappointed. It isn't fancy but it is very nice, clean and has all the comforts - hot water, cable tv, hairdryer. The bathrooms are much nicer than most hotels in this price point. It is well located between Plaza Domingo and the Zocalo so it is easy to get anywhere. I agree with previous reviews that you shoud refuse the "superior" room in favor of a regular double which is in the newer part of the hotel with better ventilation and light. The hotel breakfast was decent as well. My only complaint is that the internet did not work well in the rooms, only in the courtyard downstairs. The staff were mostly great but there are a few people who are just not that interested in helping.

Room Tip: Definitely insist on a regular double and not a "superior" room.

One of the best hotels I have stayed in in years. From the moment you are greeted you know that your stay is going to be special and indeed it was. I visit Oaxaca each year and have found my new home.

Room Tip: The double rooms are more spacious.

This is the second time we have stayed at Casantica. The rooms are on the small side, but very clean. The common areas are beautifully decorated with lots of antiques and plants and are immaculate. The high season price of about $100 a night for two, includes a choice of complete breakfast. Every day there was a musician singing and playing the guitar for tips at breakfast. Very nice. The pool is small, but heated. Casantica is about a block from the main square and three blocks from the Santo Domingo church. The front desk staff are GREAT!! They were very knowledgeable and recommended a museum (Museo del Palacio) for our little one that was right on the mark. We will definitely go back to Casantica. There is SO much to see and do in Oaxaca.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room overlooking the pool.

This hotel is not more than an average 3 star hotel. Our room was very small, dark, and very strong mildew smell coming from bathroom drains. Noise level from outside very loud starting at 8:00am so don't expect to sleep late. It was clean but bathroom towels were very cheap quality. Bathroom has not been updated since 1950s. Metal shower door did not slide closed, broken tile sink counter, soap dish falling off wall, etc. Staff was very nice, very nice lobby, courtyard, pool and good restaurant but did not make up for being uncomfortable. The location is great, walking distance to Zocalo and shopping but there are better options.

Based in the historical centre just between the zocalo and the Santa domingo Church the hotel cannot get a better location.
The rooms are a bit small, but the courtyard, pool and breakfast is pretty nice...

My room very small and no windows.
Bed and bed linens. Super old and not comfortable
Some staff super nice, others not so friendly.
During my stay they would add water to the pool at 6am or 10pm using a pumper truck and it was very loud, no sleep loud.

The location is good. The wifi works only in the lobby.

Knowing what I know now I would not stay here again.

CasAntica, an Ex-Convent was a wonderful choice.Located just one block away from the Zocalo(the Square) it's the perfect location,without the noise and a 24 hours desk.
It's very charming and beautiful with a spacious ,green courtyard.
The staff is very friendly and helpful and I want to give special thanks to the-very good english speaking- receptionist MarieSol .
They also organize great tours for very reasonable prices.
I will definitely come back to CasAntica on my next visit to Oaxaca.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the highest floor (3 ) facing the morning sun, because they have the most light...
