A Lovely Mexican Hotel
Reviewed 1 month ago

This hotel has hand carved beds and furniture. There are hand stenciled flowers on the walls. There are beautiful wrought iron chandeliers, leather couches in the sitting areas with gorgeous flowers throughout. The location is excellent- walking distance to the Botanical Gardens and Zocalo. Service was wonderful.

Delightful Hotel

Oaxaca is a lovely town and this place added joy to my stay. The roof terrace for breakfast was a morning pleasure i looked forward to each of my days in this town. The fruit was top quality, the green juice was always fresh and the grasshopper omelette amazing. My ground floor rum was comfortable, the shower worked well - what not to like?

Amazing Italian food

Chef Stefano blew us away with his beautiful food. This was the best meal by far we had in Oaxaca, and as well had an interesting chat with the chef. The lamb tortellini was incredible, as was the bruschetta with parmesan and cherry tomatoes and the desserts were ample and fantastic.

Loved this location

Dont just go to the Zocolo, explore this area which is just a few blocks from central. This area has some very good coffee shops and its own church. The walk to centro is easy and feels safe. Rooms have high ceilings and a grand feel to them. Very clean, and staff are exceptional. Highly recommend this hotel. Pool is very small, and has an adult only feel to it.

Nice property - Terrible Maintenance
Reviewed 4 months ago

This is a very nice little hotel, which causes a very warm welcome feeling the moment you walk in. It seems to be an old home from the area that has been restored to serve as hotel. There is a very nice patio in the center, with seating area and a bar, and all the rooms are around it.

Rooms are very nicely decorated and cozy. It is well located, within a 10 minute walk to the main center area with many restaurants and museums. The restaurant is located in a nice roof terrace, great for breakfast.

It was all going very well the night we cheked in, until the following morning when trying to take an early morning shower. There was no hot water. There is a phone in the room but no indications as how to dial for assistance so I had to go out of the room to the front desk to let them know about this problem. I was told that the maintenance person had still not arrived and that it would be about a half hour until he arrived. I was in a hurry so I had to take the freezing cold shower. Later, I was told that apparently they had checked the water heater (we were told that each room has a separate heater) and that it was working fine, insinuating that I was probably not telling the truth. Next morning, same story. I had to again go to the front desk and this time I asked the man to follow me into the room to verify the cold water condition. The man verified this and they sent someone upstairs to check the water heater. About 10 minutes later, we had hot water so they did fix something that was not working properly.

On the 3rd morning of my stay, again, no hot water. I again went to the front desk and they told me that maybe I did not know how to operate the shower faucet ?????!!!! (maybe they need to provide instructions!) Again, I asked them to follow me to the room to verify that there was no hot water. After verifying, they sent someone upstairs, and the hot water started coming out. However, the hot water only lasted for about 5 minutes, after that it was again cold. I gave up.

The irritating thing is not just the fact that the hot water does not work but the fact that they don't acknowledge that they have a problem and instead they try to blame it on the guest by saying that we do not know how to work the faucet.

Our group stayed in two separate rooms, #3 and #6, and both had the same lack of hot water issue.

Also, during our 3 day stay they only provided one small, skimpy bar of soap to share between the shower and the sink. The room TV is about the size of a small laptop and the wifi is not stable.

The very good impression that we had on our arrival, was vanished by these inconveniences and bad service from the personnel that did not show any concern for fixing the issues that we were reporting.

I would not go back to this hotel and would definitely not recommend it.
