This amiable hotel offered spacious comfortable rooms, tranquil outdoor courtyard common space, a small pool, as well as a popular restaurant. We stayed three nights in a Junior Suite and appreciated the quiet space after busy days touring. Our room could have been made more comfortable with couple of chairs and a table, but we located some just outside our room in the wide courtyard hallway and "borrowed" them for a couple of days. The beds were a little too firm for our liking, but not as firm as the other nearby property we stayed at. The bathroom was comfortable and the shower spacious enough for two people.
The hotel offers easy walking distance to several cultural points of interest and great restaurants, including Catedral—a top Oaxacan restaurant across the street (see our review of this lovely eatery for more details).
Be aware of the potential for noise at the swimming pool which opens until 9pm as a majority of the rooms face onto this pool. Most days were fine but one day two children spend their entire day playing loudly making it difficult to find peaceful retreat from bustling Oaxaca.
Tip: Avoid both the Master Suite and the Presidential Suite as they are at the front of the hotel overlooking the main street below and are likely the noisiest.More
