I agree with the other disappointed visitors that Casa Cid de Leon is very much overpriced and overrated. It advertises itself as a luxury hotel, but it really is average. We couldn't sleep from the street noise. Also, the staff is constantly cooking in the rooftop kitchen which shares a wall with the guest rooms! The noises from the kitchen...

My wife and I stayed a week in Casa Cid de Leon and loved it. We planned to stay only for a day or two because of the rather high price (for our budget), but we stayed much longer because the staff and the location were very convincing. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was very nice every day with home...

I am always looking for hotels that gives you the sense of HOME, maybe because I dont like big chane hotels. So I found this 4 rooms boutique hotel in the heart of historic UNESCO down town Oaxaca, and I only can tell you that they made me feel "better than my home" From my frist contact to the hotel...

Casa Cid de Leon's website poetically promises charm, comfort, and luxury for the usual price of a five-star hotel. The pictures of the rooms (containing different furniture from the actual furniture) are gorgeous. One would not expect to be confronted with a dilapidated entryway, complete with the wealthy family's leftover furniture from the 1980s whose white leather seats were in...

This hotel was a sad disappointment. If it was advertised honestly and if the rates were appropriate it could have been described as a fantastic find. However, it is billed as a luxury hotel in guidebooks and has a gorgeous but misleading website. My family felt bad disliking the hotel and tried really hard to see its charm. The staff...

This hotel did not live up to its Frommers review, its web site presentation, or its five star billing in a Oaxaca tourist guide book. The lobby shared with a travel agency was not an auspicious introduction. Our televisions did not work nor did our room safe. We consistently had problems with the showers - too hot, too cold, or...

I really enjoyed my stay here. It was my first trip to the interior of Mexico. I am a woman travelling alone and I did not know what to expect, having heard so many uncomplimentary stories of Mexico (not of Oaxaca, but of Mexico in general). My fears were quickly dispelled. I was picked up at the airport by Mr....

Stayed here for a week. Beautiful suite that accomodated three adults (one person on a sofa bed that was very comfortable). Nicest staff that is the most accomodating. Room service available. Breakfast every morning on the roof terrace that included fresh fruit, eggs, hot chocolate, etc. We didn't speak much Spanish but one of the staff spoke English and answered...

I found the Casa Cid de Leon be charming, comfortable, welcoming and situated perfectly in the heart of Oaxaca's center. It was by far the finest hotel I've seen in Mexico, or perhaps anywhere for that matter. Each room has a unique design that gives it a different, beautiful and most-decidedly Oaxacan feel. The lodging could not be any nicer....
