We stayed at his hotel as it was recommended by our driver Adelino Olea,[--] who took us to Oaxaca City from Huatulco; we asked him to suggest a moderately priced hotel, on the Zocalo, town square of the City. Yes, I will warn you it is noisy at night, because your are right where we wanted to be-on the Zocalo,...

i am not a picky person but this hotel is awfully overpriced. The room was not only in a proper condition but we found mice walking around during the night. the staff is ok but the owner or manager or whoever he is that calls himself The Accountant was not only impolite but ridiculous when trying to cheat us with...

Source of noise was from inside of the hotel. Windows open to internal halls and every conversation (or activity), even in other rooms, can be heard loud and clear. At least ceiling fan was quiet. The location next to zocalo is very convenient and the price of the room was right. Some rooms are VERY small. I asked to change...

This hotel probably should be avoided. The rooms are noisy and none of our windows opened out onto the street. Instead, they opened into the hallway. We only picked it because it was near the center of town.

This hotel is good with the people over there as they are really nice and try to get help even though they don't speak English.

6 square meters dark rooms with the only one window on the hotel aisle. No fresh air, no light, but only a lot of noise..you con listen to eveyone passing in front of your room and the only one possibility to have some some privacy is to.close the courtains . The price you pay is an offence! You just pay...

We stayed three nights at the Gala after fleeing from Hotel Mariposa. Small doesn't begin to describe the rooms. You have to step outside to change your mind. Actually, I couldn't believe they crammed a bathroom into a closet. Had to damn near sit sideways on the toilet. That said, the value and location are excellent. Good fair price, clean...

We stayed at the Hotel Gala during the Day of the Dead festivities this year. The location was perfect. We had an interior room, so noise wasn't a problem. The staff was extremely polite and helpful, even with a few snafus for our stay. Part of the problem was our lack of pre-planning and part was a change in management...

Oaxaca is an absolutely magical place to spend time over the Christmas period! It was pure enchantment being there and I am already planning when I will return. If it is during one of their peak festival seasons, or if you only have a limited amount of time, location becomes a very important factor to consider. For that reason I...

We stayed at the Hotel Gala on our last night in Oaxaca because the B&B were staying in was totally booked, and what a let down it was. The hotel is located right on the zocalo and is horrible. The room was small and the bathroom is very very small. We got a room in the first floor facing the...

“Stay away from street side. Lots of noise with glass louvered windows”
 of 5 bubbles mslouwho, 7 Mar 2016 | Read review
“Try and get a room as close to ground level as you can. Ask to see the room before you pay.”
  • The very small closet, and old TV.
  • Way too small.
  • View from just outside of my room. We had no view to the street.

“As there isn't an elevator in the hotel, choose a lower level if climbing stairs is a problem. Choose an inside facing room and avoid street facing rooms if you value your sleep.”
