How to Get There
If you're looking to do the tourist thing in Oaxaca, I couldn't recommend this place enough. It's within easy walking distance of all the famous restaurants and only a 15 minute walk from the local market and downtown area. The rooms were very comfortable and the pool area was perfect...
We choose the Quinta Real because of the location and history of the property. This is my third visit to this property over 22 years. While the rate has soared, precious little has been done to the guest rooms to justify the rate increase or to make them more comfortable. We have stayed at several Quinta Real properties and were quite impressed with the renovations at the property in Puebla, which is of a similar historic period. It is a shame that little has been done to upgrade the rooms in the Oaxaca property, especially the bathrooms.
We had three of the exterior rooms for the five nights of our stay. The room initially assigned to my sister had a spectacularly foul smell. After much duscussion, Management finally assigned her a different room that had inadequate air conditioning. This was eventually fixed. The rooms are quiet even though they faced the street.
Having said this, service was good. The staff was generally gracious and helpful. We did have the breakfast buffet included and it was quite impressive and delicious. We found the service both in the restaurant and the bar to be very attentive and excellent. The concierge was able to arrange a great tour guide for the two days we requested. The pool area is a pleasant place to while away a hot afternoon.
All in all, it is a shame that the pricing seems a bit off considering the quality of the rooms. There are now a number of well located boutique hotels in Oaxaca that should present a good alternative.
DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL WITH AIR MILES. American Airlines has made such an onerously cheap deal that
there is a no refund policy and that includes weather, Act of God - no matter if you can't get there It would have been great to understand this when booking the hotel. American Airlines couldn't get us there.
In summary: Great location, interesting and attractive building, functional service, nice pool (rare to have this in central Oaxaca), small room and not good value for money.
We stayed here for 2 nights. We would have stayed here longer but it was fully booked the other nights. Therefore for the other nights we stayed in Casa de Sierra Azul and so had a useful comparison for this review.
Firstly, we had the most basic room at Quinta Real and the best room at Casa de Sierra Azul yet we still paid more than twice as much to stay at Quinta Real. Even though twice the price, our room at Quinta Real was far smaller. The bathroom in the Quinta Real was particularly small (really disappointing for an expensive hotel).
We also got breakfast included in the price at Casa de Sierra Azul, but not at Quinta Real.
Apart from the disappointment of the room, the rest of the hotel is very nice. Interesting historic building, with a pretty pool area. It is very centrally located.
Overall we didn’t think it was worth paying twice the price for a pool (barely used as we were out in the city enjoying Oaxaca) and the pleasure of walking through the lobby of a nice building. So this hotel will appeal to those who just want to stay in the fanciest hotel in town, whatever the cost.
The building is truly beautiful, but the service is not bad, I asked for additional towels and never got them. The rooms are not renovated they look quite old fashion. It is a very expensive hotel there are many beautiful hotel in Oaxaca and significantly cheaper. We went there only because we needed a pool for our children.
