How to Get There
Stayed 3 nights with my girl-friend in this calm and beautiful place. Just a short walk from Santo Domingo. Very friendly manager and staff with spot on recommendations as to where to dine and what to do culturally. Highly recommended.
Aa peaceful haven in a wonderful city. Room 3 on the ground floor was very spacious and very quiet. Bathroom was great and large shower was most welcome. The kingsize bed was extremely comfortable. No need for airconditioning. Staff were extremely pleasant and accommodating.Our arrival flight got cancelled so instead of 5 nites we stayed just 4. The hotel contacted Booking.com and amended the booking so we didnt have to pay the nite we werent there.This was most appeciated.
The breakfast area is huge and cool upstairs and a very pleasant place to pass some time. The swimming pool is very small and we didnt make use of it. A delightful hotel.
This is a difficult hotel to review as there are numerous very good points and several glaring issues.
The good bits: the staff are very friendly, helpful & efficient, the hotel was clean with good size rooms, nice bathroom & a good shower. The open air rooftop restaurant looked lovely, though was very quiet while we were there. The ground floor public area was a delightful "courtyard" with lots of fresh flowers.
The negatives: We chose Room 2 in the corner of the ground floor because it is one of the few to have an outside window. Most front onto the courtyard with the only natural light coming from the courtyard itself i.e. no outside window & limited privacy. They may well be the quieter option as our room seemed to completely lack sound insulation. The hotel is very close to a busy road with constant traffic noise. It sounded like we were living in the road. We resorted to using earplugs every night. It desperately needs double glazing though I'm not sure that even this would be enough to make the noise levels acceptable. The choice, therefore is between having noise or no privacy & limited natural light. The other issue was that we booked thinking the hotel had a pool. What they actually have is a tiny plunge pool tucked next to the restaurant on the roof. It has two sunbeds crammed in next to it and, if they happen to be taken, there's nowhere else to sit. The hotel's photos have been taken quite cleverly to make it seem larger than it actually is. We felt rather conned as we thought that we'd be able to relax by the pool after being out all day. Overall, it's a mixed bag.
Los Pilares staff was amazing from our very late check in ( 2am) due to plane delays to assistance with booking a bus ride back to Mexico City after having our plane cancelled. They greeted us every morning and we enjoyed breakfast everyday on the rooftop with our excellent waiter Rocky , who provided history about Day of the Dead and other activities around the hotel . In the evenings we would head upstairs and enjoy hot Mexican chocolate with Mezcal and other treat recommendations from our waitstaff. There were three of us , wife , son and myself in a single room with double beds. First floor was fine and not noisy as some reviewers have commented and it was the holiday. We are certainly coming back and staying at this fine hotel with the most helpful and courteous staff . They also had erected a beautiful altar in the lobby and allowed my wife to put her family photos and items to celebrate Day of the Dead. We;ve stayed in other larger hotels , resorts and even private homes but the hospitatlty here cannot be touted enough.
It was great staying in Los Pilares, granted it was off season, but the staff were still fantastic and the hotel itself is beautiful. The location is great and it's very easy to walk into the centre of Oaxaca within 10mins. Breakfast was not included with our room but I think it's optional, however the breakfast was outstanding.
