How to Get There
We have stayed with 3 kids in a junior suite. Very friendly staff help us to park car (as there is no parking at hotel) and get us settled in. Room was comfortable, only airco was somewhat loud. The breakfast was very good. The hotel is located next to the Zocalo and everything is in walking distance. Why not 5 stars: there was hardly any serving at the hotel, expect during breakfast. But I would certainly recommend it for a city trip to Oaxaca.
This hotel was hard to review as much was nice but some basics were lacking. The best things about this hotel are the location and the tranquil feeling once you are inside. My friend and I had a Jr. Suite upstairs, which was very large and light, The service by everyone except the front desk was excellent. Those are the positives.
There were some negatives, tho. The tub/shower combo has very high sides and getting in and out is extremely awkward. The grout had mildew and the whole tub area had an unpleasant feel, which was surprising given the cleanliness of the room. I think the hotel has some deferred maintenance. The room was quite stark and noisy as there was nothing on the walls or the floor. Some little touches of color would have been nice. The AC was not sized to sufficiently cool the room. I thought we were paying for the pool man who was around to get drinks and the restaurant, which was lightly used. We did not eat at the restaurant. If you want a vacation by a small pool where someone will give you a drink, this is a good place to do it.
This hotel has lots of charm and has an excellent location, 1 street from zocalo. The breakfast is served in a lovely courtyard and is freshly cooked to order. The staff were so helpful, we had a problem with our air conditioning when we arrived and they fixed it within the hour. We did not use the pool as by the time we got back from our days out it was in the shade. The rooms are quite dated in some ways, but we loved the style of the hotel and the bed was one of the comfiest I have ever slept in. Also spotlessly clean. We would definitely stay again.
BEWARE!!! We were going to a wedding in Oaxaca and made a reservation at this hotel for more than 4 months prior to our arrival. We received an email asking us to call them because the hotel staff needed to talk to us. Once I called, they said they were hosting a wedding for a family at their hotel and they had sold our rooms. They offered to look for another hotel for us but there were two or three weddings going on at Oaxaca that weekend. Hard to find another hotel. We read a lot of reviews for this hotel prior to our stay and it seems like a great place to stay. Unfortunately, your trip can be canceled and your reservation status will not be respected. You have been warned. I would search elsewhere to guarantee a comfortable stay in Oaxaca.
Lovely colonial building, great location. Don't get deterred by the protesters in front of the hotel... They are peaceful and quiet, this hotel is really worth it! And their restaurant is excellent, especially for breakfast!
