There are lots of charming boutique hotels in downtown Oaxaca, but many of them have downside: the noise. That is not a problem at the Holiday Inn Express, you can't hear anything from the street so you really can relax and rest at night. The manager is always paying attention to every detail, the complimentary breakfast is ok, the room... More

Clean spacious rooms with safe. Good buffet breakfast. Excellent location, safe at night and 5 minutes from Church and pedestrianised road. Good wifi. Friendly staff, speak English. Im house tour operator. Bit characterless and chain-like but does what it says on the tin. Would stay again.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for the week of Dia de Muertos and it was perfect. The rooms are large and the beds comfortable. Pool's nice, too, as is the complimentary breakfast offered alongside it every morning. Location is near everything... just a 5 minute walk to the main street and 5 more to the Zocalo. Best of all...

As is often the case, the Holiday Inn chain is much nicer outside the US! This is a charming place, and the manager Carlos is very solicitous and anxious to be sure all is going well.

It was with much trepidation that a late reservation was made at a Holiday Inn Express. The name connotes a bare bones hotel experience. This was anything but.
