Wonderful little casa. Very friendly and helpful. Stayed there for many nights. Beds are super hard but that's kinda normal there. Beautiful grounds, good food, good prices, great location. Stay there!

Nice religious decorations. Rooms are little small, but are comfortable. Pretty good location - can walk to most downtown attractions. This hotel has a LOT of rules. You can't bring guests or alcohol into the hotel, along with a long list of other rules that are prominently displayed in the room. This made it feel a little more like youth hostel than a hotel.

I stayed in casa del sotano with my boyfriend last month April,we really loved the colonial feel of the place,at first we thought having no a/c was going to be a problem,but Oaxaca city has cool nights,we slept with our windows open and it wasn't a problem.We loved how clean they keep the place and how friendly and helpful the staff was.I specially loved the breakfast patio with the view of the city,i enjoyed my breakfast but was disappointed that the times i went for breakfast they never had pan dulce to go with my cafe the olla,but over all we loved the place and would love to stay there if we ever go back to Oaxaca city.Oh another plus about the hotel is that is very close to the old church of Santo Domingo and historic district.

Nice hotel, good food. Bed was hard and I was sick so I wish it had been softer. Every employee I spoke with was nice. Right down the road from santa domingo, and lots of restaurants, cafes, and art stores. I'd stay again, hopefully in a softer bed. Great view from the roof as well.

Great location, friendly staff and excellent food. The courtyard was a great place to relax after a long day of exploring.

Unfortunately, the room was quite warm. The fan did not do an adequate job of keeping it cool, and as the balcony doors opened right above the dining area, and were right next to my bed, I wasn't comfortable sleeping with them open with people still eating and drinking in the bar area. My guidebook said all rooms had A/C - they do not.

Casa del sotano is in a great location. A short walk from the town centre so nice and close without being too noisy. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is not included so you have to spend a little extra, but it is worth it.

Our only problem was that the room was quite hot and stuffy. There were 2 fans in our room but one did very little and the other sounded like an aeroplane landing.

For the price, well worth it.

It is a traditional style hotel with an inner courtyard and the rooms surrounding the courtyard. Reception is open 24 hours a day and the area seems safe, i walked at 5am back from the Santo Doming Church and it was fine. The restaurant area for breakfast is outside and the breakfast choices were traditional and international. They have a small kitchen and it is a great little terrace. The room was a good size room with a huge bed and hard mattress.

Downers: 1. is that we were next to the neighbours house's toilet and we could get their smells and hear their business in the mornings (grosse i know) that is room 23 so stay away from there
2. the room gets pretty hot too. There is no air con but there is a ceiling fan and a large
3. the wifi is unreliable

The staff is very kind and helpful tho and the hotel is in pretty good shape. Closes amenities: ATM 5 blocks away. pharmacy: 3 blocks away walking distance to Santo Domingo Church and pedestrian area, hotel is on a bit of a hill if you are walking back ;)
