Casa Los Arquitos B&B
Ranked #63 of 134 Oaxaca B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 31, 2012

This is an excellent choice if your looking for a beautiful and relaxed place that is charming and sparkleing clean. Situated across from the historic aqueduct it's a great location to explore the city. The street is quiet with little traffic so you'll have a more tranquil experience. Close to Santo Domingo, there are many good restaurants and cafes nearby. Hosts Juan and Patricia treat you like cherished friends and help you navigate the city, and they provide a nice fresh breakfast. They have a beautiful patio to sit, WIFI and a common computer room and library to use.

We stayed here for our honeymoon during Dia de los Muertos last year and had a wonderful stay. Juan an Patricia are the most gracious of hosts and their B&B is tranquil and beautiful. We could not recommend it enough. If you are traveling to Oaxaca, it is a must-stay!

We visited Oaxaca for the first time, for Christmas 2010. We stayed at Casa Los Arquitos for ten days and we loved it! Everything about it was exactly perfect. It is very central, close to the Alameda, churches, zocalo, markets... but at the same time, it is very peaceful, tucked away on a quiet, picturesque cobble street... the Arquitos area is one of the prettiest places in town, and we were lucky enough to be staying right there in the middle of it!

The house itself is lovely, attractively decorated, clean and well maintained. There are fruit trees and berries (we enjoyed orange juice from oranges picked fresh from the tree in the courtyard). There is a small library room with some travel information, books, and computer with internet access, which was very convenient. Our room was off the main courtyard, and was bright and spacious, with two comfortable beds, a desk, small table and chairs, large armoire with bar fridge, and roomy bathroom.

The best thing about Los Arquitos is Juan and Patricia! They are excellent, thoughtful and helpful hosts. Every morning, they greeted us in the dining room, where we were served breakfast (yogurt and granola, fresh fruit, a selection of local baked goods, fresh-made juice, and a hot beverage of your choice - all delicious!). They can help with sightseeing advice (thank you, Juan, for convincing us that Tlacolula Sunday Market is a must-see - it was!), call you a cab, help you make a phone call or a reservation - they clearly do care that you are happy and comfortable in their casa and their city.

A friend and I stayed for 10 days recently at Casa Los Arquitos B&B on Rufino Tamayo in central Oaxaca City. Located on a quiet street near the historic aqueduct, Los Arquitos is within walking distance of the Zocolo, Santo Domingo Cultural Centre, and dozens of restaurants and other services. It is obvious that owners Patricia and Juan give a lot of thought to their guests' comfort. They fill the house with beauty: flowers in and outside the rooms, bright linens, and thoughtful presentation of breakfast. They were generous with their time; Juan is an good source of suggestions for side trips and has a roster of taxi drivers for excursions and for just getting around town. As well, our room came with a folder of information and maps to help us orient ourselves.. The accommodations were very comfortable: our room contained a large, lockable wardrobe, a mini-fridge, a writing desk, bistro table and chairs, and good reading lamps. In the shared areas, there is a small library, free wi-fi access, and an on-site computer for guests' use. Los Arquitos is an excellent place to stay in Oaxaca. Our only hesitation in recommending it is that we hope there will be room for us when we are able to return. Many thanks Juan and Patricia.

Hosts Juan and Patricia could not be more welcoming. This bed and breakfast is spotless, with a beautiful interior courtyard. Breakfast each day includes yougurt granola, fresh pastries, and a different fruit plate and juice each day-each artfully presented. We also enjoyed the fresh flowers in our room.

This b&b is on a quiet street which was very restful but it is within easy walking distance of the Santa Domingo and other Oaxaca attractions. The hosts also helped us arrange tours, taxis, etc.

The Casa Los Arquitos is beautiful, immaculate and peaceful. It truly is an oasis in a busy city. Once you enter the front door you immediately relax and experience the tranquility of the lovely surroundings owners Juan and Patricia have created for their guests. We spent 9 nights at this beautiful home away from home. The b&b is spacious and light-filled with beautiful flowers, plants and trees in the courtyards (2) and imaginative regional artwork throughout. There were always fresh flowers in all the common spaces. Breakfast was delicious and fresh. Our room was very comfortable with a king size bed, air-conditioning, kitchenette and spacious bath w shower. We also enjoyed a private terrace. Juan and Patricia could not have been more helpful, but also allowed us the privacy and peace we wanted while on vacation. We also utilized the available computer to check email. There was plenty of available literature including maps, information on tours and places of interest. Casa Los Arquitos is a 15-minute walk to the Catedral Santo Domingo and about 20 minutes to the Zocalo. It's a quick cab ride if you prefer. There are incredible restaurants right down the street, a local market, laundry and other amenities. After a long day of sightseeing, hiking or shopping we found returning to Casa Los Arquitos incredibly rejuvenating, so we were ready to go again the next day.
