I booked through booking.com. When I arrived I was shocked how basic the room was. A rock hard single bed, a wooden table and chair and a threadbare towel that I wouldn't even have put in a dog basket. I only stayed 1 night but there was a hen party going on which was so noisy and didn't involve any...

Stayed here for two nights. The single room was small, the shared bathroom was dirty most of the time. I found the hotel to be very noisy, even when half full. Staff were so so. A good 15 minute walk from the zocolo. But its a nice walk ! Internet was free and quite good.

Stayed here during our tour of mexico, was included with the tour price so wasnt expecting it to be so nice! In a good spot, rooms are small but everything you need, great roof top terrace, good food in the cafe downstairs. Would definitly stay here again.

I stayed at Casa Arnel 2 years in a row for my winter holiday to visit my sister in Oaxaca. The stays were back in 2011/2012, but it was such a great place that I still wanted to make some notes figuring the most exciting things to me hadn't changed :) The only complaint I had was that the door...

Think of Casa Arnel as more of a bed and breakfast. It is a home, with many rooms that you can rent at all different levels. If you want a room with a bath? They've got it. A single room, but a shared bath? They've got that. Three beds in two rooms? They've got that too. The rooms are not...

I have stayed at Casa Arnel several times in the past few years as I like the location - it is fairly peaceful and I love the birds! - but the prices are confusing, different on several booking sites. I paid online for 2 nights, then, when I unexpectedly needed to stay another night, I was charged MORE in person...

Positive: The standard double room (private bathroom) is spacious and nicely decorated, room is clean. The atrium is like a tropical forest, very cozy. Minus: The hotel's front door is locked (guests don't have keys) and the hotel staff's not always attentive, you can risk waiting at the front door for few minutes. The location is fine but not great...

I stayed here for four nights on my first trip to Oaxaca. A nice 10 minute walk past several small parks and you reach the cities main square and market area. So well located. Safe and secure accommodation. Helpful staff and attached restaurant. Several tours and laundry can be arranged here. The WiFi was free. The room had a very...

A family-run business that is very welcoming and has a lot of repeat visitors. The central court yard is very pretty, with lots of vegetation and birds. The rooms are functional and clean. The breakfasts are excellent value and quality. Although the wifi is not very good in the hotel, the neighbouring coffee shops have great wifi and superb coffee...especially...

I can confirm the general descriptions by other users, nice location, in walking distance to the city center, nice tropical garden and also very kind and attentive staff. However, I was somewhat disappointed about the condition of the shared bathrooms. Yes, at time of booking I was aware that shared bathrooms always have some potential for surprise. However, every hotel...
