I stayed at this hotel for about a week as part of a group. The standard rooms are all very good - comfortable beds, excellent showers, very clean and well maintained. The suites are superb though, with different designs and outstanding features. Where the hotel exceeds expectations is through additional features and quality of service. It has a lovely restaurant with great food (although more expensive than some other places in Oaxaca) and very tasty mezcal cocktails. The roof terrace offers an exceptional view and a wide selection of drinks. There is a library with a computer and books (limited reading material in English though) and a couple of lovely courtyards to relax in. The staff are all wonderful (even delivering toast, water, medication and clean towels to a friend who wasn't well during the stay) and will make your trip delightful.
I've stayed in several hotels in Oaxaca, but this has the best blend of historic colonial architecture, luxury hotel feel whilst maintaining intimacy, and superb service and location. It's a short walk to anything in town and easy to access to drive or take tours from reception to further afield destinations.
