We stayed here for 5 nights from Sunday to Friday. The location is fantastic. It's only a 10 minute walk to Santo Domingo Church and no more than a 20 minute walk to the Zocalo. Second, the breakfast is fantastic; every day, they serve a typical Mexican dish (hot) in addition to the fresh fruit, bread and excellent coffee (sourced...

Very-well located, you can easily reach the centre by walk. Lovely and clean, charming decoration and details . Has everything you need, including a nice atmosphere (and a bar!). Friendly and helpful staff.

We brought ten women to this magical place and rented the whole building it was very magical clean colourful full of kindness and beauty. We didn't see many staff about and it would have been great to meet maria but we were only there three days ... We had a mini bus to run us in and out of town...

We had an excellent time staying here for four nights. The hotel is well-located, a quick walk from the zocalo. We stayed in the luna room, which is the only room on the second floor. It overlooks the courtyard and steps out onto the terrace--definitely worth reserving this room, if possible. We enjoyed the tasty traditional breakfasts cooked each morning--the...

We stayed in the Corazon room for 5 nights, which together with the Luna room we think are the best options in the hotel. On arrival we were offered a different room, right beside the kitchen, which we found too small and stuffy. Our complaint was immediately resolved and we were moved to another room. The staff were always friendly...

This is a great place to stay. I had the pleasure to stay at both locations. Libres is lovely but the newer place at Boca del Monte is really special. It has a beautiful courtyard, the colours are amazing and it's in a great location near the centre. Libres is also in a convenient location, just a little further to...

A fanstastic B&B with a very authentic feel, kind staff and an awesome breakfast which changes each day. In a great location too, very easy walk to the town centre and close to nice restaurants and mezcal bars. My husband had been feeling unwell before we arrived in Oaxaca, and continued to feel sick for several days, but the staff...

We stayed at the newer location, El Diablo y la Sandia Boca del Raton. We were very happy with the location. I had asked for a room at the back to avoid street noise, and we were in Rosa which was very quiet. The patio, terrace and grounds were all lovely. Breakfasts were delicious, different each day (as well as...
