The free breakfast was simple, but tasty and it was a 5 minute walk to the historical town centre.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. We had 2 adults and 2 children in room 11. The environment was tranquil and beautiful. We loved that the rooms were quiet and the only noise was from people talking in the courtyard. Everything was clean and organized. The beds were comfortable but we wished that our kids could sleep separately. It... More

We love staying at this beautiful boutique hotel. Designed in collaboration with several mexican artists, the hotel is full of perfect little spots. The service is great and the staff is always willing to help. Breakfast is simply delicious, beds are super comfortable and the location is great.

This is our second stay at Hotel Azul. It's a small, quiet, efficiently run boutique hotel in a great location. The staff is helpful & went above and beyond when we realized we'd left a passport in our room after flying to our next destination. They Fed X'd it to us right away. We'll stay here again.

This small hotel is a very recommendable for a touristic stay in Oaxaca: spacious rooms and suites, very pleasant decoration with locally inspired design, exellent food and really good welcoming service.
