My friend and I stayed at the charming Posada del Centro in Oaxaca from April 19 to 22, 2016. I booked directly with the hotel because of its good Trip Advisor rating and central location. It turned out to be an excellent choice!
Located on Avenue Independencia, it is close to the pedestrian street and only a five minute walk to the zocalo where there are a number of colourful markets, food stalls and touristy outdoor restaurants. Next door to the Posada del Centro is the quaint and tiny Xuncu Choco restaurant offering authentic Mexican cuisine and tasty breakfasts. It turned out to be our favourite and we returned several times.
The staff at the posada reception desk spoke English, were friendly, efficient and answered any questions we had. My room was on the second level in the back courtyard away from the street. Although it wan’t air-conditioned, the slatted windows opened and there was a fan. My room was quiet, spotlessly clean and had a comfortable double bed and TV. It overlooked a lovely courtyard garden below and there was an outdoor covered patio adjacent to it. My friend’s room was directly below mine and was similar.
Because of its location and good value, I would certainly stay at the Posada del Centro the next time I visit Oaxaca.More
