We felt so fortunate to find this place. The location can't be beat, the house is lovely, clean, and very comfortable. We loved our fully contained apartment, but also used the common space: Including great coffee, cooking, and best of all, a beautiful terrace. There is some noise from the street, only to be expected from the location near Santo Domingo. It is located next door to the gym, which we actually used and enjoyed. Last but not least, Jose is a wonderful host, and when we return to beautiful Oaxaca, we definitely hope to stay here again.
I had the pleasure of staying in Jose's 1-bedroom apartment for 2 months and loved the proximity to the main cultural area of the city. It is an easy 5-minute walk to amazing coffee, jewelry, food, and LOTS of festivities. And the roof terrace has an amazing view of the city. Important thing to note is that the apartment is RIGHT next to a gym that blasts music until 8pm on weekdays. Not an issue for me because I appreciated having a gym so close to me and gave me NO excuses to not work out while on vacation. :)
Jose was a perfect host! He introduced us to our favorite mezcal, El Rey de Matatlan, and took us to the factory to see how it was made! We so appreciated the local POV. I would easily stay here again on future visits!
This is one of my favoriete places in whole Mexico! Jose is so friendly and helpful,best host ever! And best mezcal ever! The house is beautiful and very Central,magnificent roof top terrace with view over the stunning Santo Domingo church. There is everything you need and it's very clean,so if you go Oaxaca,stay in casa JM!!!
When wife and I stayed in Oaxaca a few years back we had a fantastic time, and a big part of the reason for that was Jose's Osorio's Casa JM de Oaxaca. The location was perfect in that all the good sites were within walking distance, but we weren't smack in the middle of all the tourist bustle and noise around the zocalo. And our host Jose was great: accommodating, available and not overbearing. We appreciated his welcoming nature, the privacy of our own kitchen-included apartment, and being able to use the rooftop terrace and its sweet view anytime we liked. The only drawback is the gym located behind the building. They play music all day, which isn't a problem if you're out and about seeing the sights. Also, they do close down at night. We were made well aware of the noise issue prior to booking, so it was expected. Other than that, we totally recommend staying at Casa JM de Oaxaca!
Casa JM is one of the best places to stay in Oaxaca! It's located in the middle of everything; just two blocks from the Santo Domingo church. While I was there I saw all the festivities happening only a few steps from my door on the Andador Turistico. The place is always clean and it is extremely safe. The owner and the staff of the hotel are excellent, they will help you with any question you may have. There is a beautiful rooftop terrace with a magnificent 180 degree view of Oaxaca, and chairs where you can sit and relax. I have stayed in many different places in Oaxaca and by far Casa JM is number one!
Casa JM is the absolutely the most welcoming stay where we ever been. It has excellent location, beautiful terrace and the owner is magnificent host.
José is a perfect host who will go out of his way to make his guests feel welcome and their stay enjoyable. The location is perfect overlooking the 16th century cathedral of Santo Domingo with so many restaurants, mezcalerias and sights to see. There are 2 rooftop terraces with views of the city and the surrounding hills. This was my 6 th stay with José over many years. Highly recommend. He goes above and beyond what is expected.
