Beautiful hotel!
Reviewed 1 day ago

What a gorgeous hotel! We arrived on Wednesday, June 13 and left Sunday, June 17th. The staff was very attentive and made a few suggestions of restaurants nearby. I want to breakdown my reviews in bullet points:

1. Room 203- our room faced the entryway where the flower pots and tree goes beyond the rooftop. Our windows faced the street. It is a bit noisy at night- so if you’re sensitive with noise (cars, occasional fire works) it’s best to bring ear plugs. Since we have an open roof top, there is wildlife that can potentially come by. In our case, we heard a bat at (4 am) chirping in the nearby tree. It was really awesome to hear! The room itself was very spacious, SUPER CLEAN, and fully stocked with water, coffee etc.

2. Restaurant/Bar- restaurant was so-so. I suggest to grab small bites. Drinks were very good at the bar!

3. Pool- beautifully lit at night- perfect for a warm evening sipping a cocktail

4. Candles everywhere- nothing is more romantic than seeing candles in every entry and hallway. Elegant and beautiful

5. The history- remember, if you book this hotel you are also diving into a bit of history. I feel most travelers would appreciate the small details you will find (architecture, original wood and brick, etc)

6. The staff- wow! I can’t highlight enough the amazing staff at Quinta Real. They were wonderful and so attentive to our needs. Our flight didn’t leave until 4pm, however check out is at noon- so we asked if we can leave our belongings while we find last minute souvenirs, etc. They tagged our suitcases, documented how many bags and held them until our arrival. Amazing- they were very nice.

I highly recommend Quinta Real- it’s a wonderful place that gets your gears moving to experience the rest of Oaxaca.

Homophobic!

If you are a gay couple, AVOID! I’ve never felt more uncomfortable in my life. Walking in and out was dreadful, with glares from several obviously contemptuous straight men. Plus the rooms are dark and gloomy. You can do much better.

An Oaxaca getaway holiday after a business trip to Mexico City

This is one of those instances where all of the praise written about this hotel is true. -beautiful, old, etc. Yet, it didn't quite excite me. The waiters, check in staff, other staff were all as they should be. (professional, courteous, helpful). The restaurants were very nice, and the hotel location is incredibly central. For breakfasts, I chose to go out of the hotel, and to the right at the corner is the Pan:Am cafe, where I always had good breakfasts, with courteous staff. As one of the reviewers within this stream of reviews indicated, it is an historic hotel; hence some of its amenities were not on par with the price tag I paid per night. (about $300.00 Cdn. nightly). I believe that I paid for the historic nature, which is fine, but not necessarily worth the price tag. My room was lovely, albeit dark although it faced one of the several inner court yards, and the bathroom was antiquated with weak water pressure and iffy hot & cold water. - very tiny in all. The courtyard rooms are apparently quieter than the street facing rooms. But, the staff (for dry cleaning, tailoring a pair of pants) was always excellent.
The pool was beautiful, and the Head of Hospitality services managed to ensure me that my afternoon stay in the pool and sun (much needed in regard to poor weather back in Canada) would not be affected by a very large (happy and lovely) reception around the pool at the same time. He assured me that hotel guests are priority, and hence, he kept his word. In all, he was a perfect diplomat.
I went to a market place about 1 km or so, from the hotel. One market place is for food, whilst the other is for leather goods, etc. It was huge, and I purchased several practical leather wallets there, for about 350 pesos each, or about $23.00 each.
Oaxaca is a great walking city, with a lot of beautiful sites to see.
At night, the poolside bar is very relaxing. If you sit at the poolside tables, you are served your drinks in plastic cups (understandable in case glass breaks and falls into the pool). If you sit closer to the bar, then you are served with nice wine glasses. A very nice low key trio plays at the bar, that closes at midnight. .... Very nice. For all meals & restaurants within there is usually a discrete trio or ensemble playing.
The food was good in all restaurants and each and every one of the waiters was hospitable, cordial and professional.
I had the hotel taxi service pick me up at the hotel and paid 600 Mexican pesos ($40.00 Cdn) , and on my return, I paid for a local taxi for 250 pesos (about $17.00 Cdn). I didn't mind the extra cost as I prefer safety when initially unfamiliar with new surroundings.
The hotel is beautiful. It is simply not my cup of tea. All the same, thank you to everyone from the front desk, to hospitality staff and others who made my stay very enjoyable.

Great stay in the heart of Oaxaca
Reviewed 2 months ago

I stayed here with a group of friends in March and had a fantastic time.

The building is stunning and deceptively big... You can literally get lost in there. Stunning gardens and pool area that is a great place to relax after walking around the town.

Excellent staff and a good selection of food and drink. When we go back to Oaxaca, we will definitely stay here.

NOT the comfort and luxury you expect for this price
Reviewed 2 months ago

The hotel is a former convent and the facilities are beautiful. Staff is VERY attentive, service is excellent, the food is very good. The location is almost unbeatable for all Oaxaca City attractions. Unfortunately, the rooms are NOT worth the price. I understand that there are architectual limitations because of its history. However, nothing has really been done to compensate. The rooms are dark because of their history and haven't changed since. Our room hat a ceiling lamp and a sconce.. and one table lamp behind the beds.. for two people.. reading lamp? bedside lamp for each guest? No. Apart from two twin beds and a tired old cheap armoire (and the console for the minibar) there was no furniture. Not a desk, not a chair. The closet offered some space and housed a 25 year old cube RCA TV (15 years after the introduction of flat screens) with terrible reception to keep up with the daily news. The doors didn't open fully so one of the guests gets to see partial TV. For the price asked, the rooms offered zero reasons to stay and linger.. at least our room. But you do get a gold sticker on the toilet paper roll...
