“Contrary to other reviews”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

we were not very happy with our stay.There are 3 guest rooms which are very small (there is no room to put the suitcases other than the floor, so you have to step over them, everytime you want to use the washroom).We were given a choice out of the 3 and we chose the most "spacious" which was still quite small.True, you can use the dowstairs living room, and at the time of our stay no one else was there.
The owner, who speaks some English, does not have the kind of up-to-date information about the attractions in town and the opening hours.(she actually gave us some wrong information rather than say she does not know.).The location is not the best, it is on the outskirts of the old town, closer to the bus depot.
I would not recommend this place , unless you don't mind small quarters

We were in Oaxaca in 2005 and stayed in one of the better known B&Bs near the Santa Domingo Cathedral. It was great and we had a wonderful time. However, in planning this trip for February 2013, we started a little late and that B&B was full. Soooo, we started looking and we certainly lucked out. Estancia de Valencia is a wonderful, wonderful find - we like it even better than the original place we stayed! Much better!

Lorena and her husband are gracious and welcoming to their beautiful, three-bedroom home-away-from-home. They were there to greet us (weary and rumpled from a long flight) and we immediately felt right at home. The house itself is beautiful and just a few blocks from the Santa Domingo Cathedral. There is a beautiful courtyard with a lovely fountain trickling through to make the entire scene peaceful and soothing. Since Lorena and her husband live nearby, she gave us her cell phone number and told us to call anytime. Lorena would arrive every morning to make sure that we had everything we needed and oversee our amazing breakfast. Beautiful table settings, inventive dishes and just an all-round terrific breakfast every morning.

The house has excellent wi-fi (and a computer to use in the living room if you didn't bring one). The coffee pot is set up and ready to go every night so that when we early risers get up - all we have to do is push the button.

Our room was lovely with a little balcony overlooking the courtyard. It was cleaned daily and, by the way, the entire house was spotless.

A couple of excellent restaurants are nearby - one of them is El Quinque. Across the street from El Quinque - an amazing little hole-in-the-wall cooking delicious churros fresh to order!

I can't say enough about what a wonderufl week-long stay we have had at this very special place. Come if you can - but don't tell anyone else about this little secret find!

A group of 5 of us friends stayed at Estancia de Valencia together for a few nights scattered throughout a week on our way to and from other parts of Mexico. Lorena was very accomodating, allowing us to store extra baggage while we traveled, making breakfast on a morning when we arrived from an overnight bus trip, all the while being friendly and truly making us feel at home.

The house itself is beautiful, with balconies off each room and a spacious kitchen and living room. The meals were incredible with authentic Oaxacan cuisine for breakfast including Oaxacan hot chocolate! Lorena had incredible attention to detail and the place is immaculate.

The location was close enough to the center to walk there easily, but also a little outside of the congested touristy area.

We highly recommend this place!

My wife and I visited Oaxaca for a wedding and we stayed at Estancia de Valencia for four nights. What an amazing B&B! They only have 3 rooms so it feels very private. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well every night. The house is beautiful with a nice, big living/dining room that opens up to a lovely little courtyard. You are in a quiet neighborhood near multiple public parks and within easy walking distance to many of the sights, museums, markets, and good restaurants of Oaxaca.

Part of what made our stay in Oaxaca so special was the proprietor, Lorena. From the minute we walked in we felt welcome and at home. She is a fantastic host and all of her recommendations for stuff to do in and around town were excellent. Plus, Lorena's generous breakfasts were some of the best meals we had while in Oaxaca. They are quite filling and we found that we didn't really need much until dinner.

We can't to come back to Oaxaca again and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else!

We visited Oaxaca for the first time and stayed at Estancia de Valencia, the loveliest little B & B. Lorena served us a different and exquisite breakfast every day; she and her family made us feel most welcome and comfortable. Our room, the sitting areas and courtyards are thoughtfully decorated, clean and maintained to perfection. Estancia de Valencia helped us fall in love with Oaxaca, its people and culture.

Room Tip: We loved the red room with its private little terrace.

We stayed at Estancia Day Valencia for 5 nights and enjoyed each moment of our stay. It is like having a home away from home. You feel comfortable from the moment you arrive. Lorena is lovely. She is warm and welcoming, as is her staff and family. The home is well appointed and very clean. Each room is beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Jade room. We looked at each of the 3 rooms and they are all lovely, but Jade was the best for us. It has a nice balcony over looking the courtyard. The food was the best in Oaxaca! I hope Lorena will do a cookbook someday! She is happy to share how she prepares each dish. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. As others have said, it is close to the sights of Oaxaca, but far enough away to be a more calm, quiet experience. All in all, we loved it and will stay at Estancia de Valencia again if we return to Oaxaca!

This fantastic B&B is a great walk from just about everything we love to explore in Oaxaca. Lorena is an amazing hostess and we enjoyed a fantastic breakfast every day. Her recommendations for things to do in and out of town were excellent.
