Reviewed 23 October 2013

Beautiful place big rooms viewing gardens and aged trees, we had breakfast on the garden every morning, very enjoyable.

The hotel is ten minutes away from the town, you can hear the birds .

Montealban ruins are twenty minutes away by car , also the museum is a must go.

Room Tip: First floor junior suites are wonderful.

Hotel Mision de los Angeles warning!
Hotel Mision de los Angeles: unsafe place to stay, horrible faces looking at you if you ask for anything.
General Manager is a person who yells to intimidate customers +
Proof Of the vandalism? Yes

Hotel Mision de los Angeles advertise with misleading information... Wifi is useless, pool and bar close an hour earlier than advertised (They do not mention vandalism on grounds) Do not buy problems.. There are many places to stay in Oaxaca, do not put your property and your life at risk. If vandals took their time to key a truck and nobody in the hotel cared about it, I wonder what they would do to a person? Scary!!!

Located in Czda. Porfirio Diaz #102-D, Colonia Reforma. An unsafe place to stay, we stayed there for nine nights. On July 22, 2013 we left our truck parked inside the grounds, near to our room, in a perfectly marked space for cars close to the pool . We went to the festival "Lunes del Cerro", we left around 3 pm and returned around 8 pm (approx. 5 hours). They knew we were gone since we bought the tickets for the festival in the reception and later we asked for a taxi reservation. When we came back we noticed that vandals keyed our truck really bad, we told to an employee who was walking to the laundry room, who gave us a bad look and told us to make the report in the reception. We talked to Hary, the receptionist in duties, and asked her " Could you please send an employee to verify that we are parked in the correct spot, and to see how bad the vandals damaged our car on purpose and with no reason?" We made this request because it was clear enough that the vandals took their time to commit their crime, during day light and was several employees around, ( I noticed they have several employees around all day long since we arrived there on July 15) we were in/out at different times. She refused to help us, stating "there are no employees available to check that, and it is a public parking, so there is nothing we can do about it". We asked to talk with the manager, but she said that he would be there next day from 9 am to 7 pm. Because I insisted she said "I'll let the manager know, and he will contact you", but this never happened. In order to get to this parking lot you have to drive first in front of the reception and then between the reception building and the computer room, and then you go all the way by the pool; all in hotel property. Next day I tried again to talk with the general manager (Sr, Oscar Holm) since the reception manager (Sr. Mario) had not the power to make a written report of what happen; but just like the employee before (Hary), the answer was the same, no care about the problem and no way to talk to the general manager. Employees are well trained to avoid communication with the general manager, they even refused to give manager's office phone number. Wednesday at 9:48 a.m. for the third time I went to reception, and when the reception manager (Mario) saw me, he immediately told one of the counter employees who was standing beside him. "Here she is again", and the employee gave me a bad look like I stole something, I did not care and approached (Mario) the reception manager, and asked him to talk with the General Manager, and again, the General Manager wasn't there?! I told Sr. Mario that I would come every ten minutes until I could talk to the the General Manager, to get a written report of what happen to our truck.
Yes, I decided to obtain a written report, since on Friday 19, when the truck was parked for about two hours, when my sister backed up the tire flatted and we did not say anything because we thought it was an accident, but after what happen on Monday, and after the answer we got from the hotel staff, I seriously think vandals are welcome in this hotel. I finally could talk to the General Manager on Wednesday before 11 in the morning, He was in front of the computer room door, and guess what? before I finished talking this "person" started yelling trying to intimidate me, and saying that I was accusing him, so I had to say clear enough that I NEVER accused him of anything, he is a rude, no manners person with no idea of the meaning CUSTOMER, who enjoys changing the words, to pretend he is being attacked; he made fun of me when I told him I took some pictures on Monday for whom it may concern to verify I was parked correctly and to show the damage on our truck. With a sarcastic smiling face he asked me: "So, do you take pictures every time and everywhere you park?" He couldn't understand I took pictures because we were victims of vandalism and they were acting like -who cares about the customer? we just care about money- (I felt sad for him), but long story short (There is a lot more to say), he finally ordered his subordinate to give me a written report that our truck was parked and keyed on the hotel parking lot, and of course they stated they are not responsible for the damage.
They ruined our vacations :(
I have more pictures that shows the full damage...
You are welcome to email me if you want a more detailed information of what happened.
But if you just want to bother me because you don't want tourist to know the truth, then do not waste your time, because I won't reply.

We stayed at la mision de Los Angeles for five days while on vacation in Oaxaca. It is a beautiful hotel right near the top of the main street for walking in Oaxaca. As soon as we walked two blocks we were in the best part of town for seeing all the vitality and richness of Oaxaca. Excellent location.

The hotel itself is quite beautiful with well maintained lawns and a wonderful pool. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent. Breakfast was a feast and the service was first class. Our room and bath was well cleaned and in excellent condition.

We were surprised at the most reasonable price we paid. We have never had such an excellent hotel at such a good price.

I stayed in this hotel for business and it met my expectations. However, there is a long (30 min) walk to the center of Oaxaca, which can be nice if you like to walk as it is safe but when the weather is hot it can be not as enjoyable. The best part is breakfast as there is a great selection of local food. The rooms are clean and staff nice, its a little bit old and the internet is really really slow.

The hotel is very nice and clean. If you want to book a tour you may do so right in the hotel lobby, which i found very convenient. I booked a tour for three which was done very well. The food in the restaurant was very good along with the service.

The drain in my bathroom did omit a foul smell. I finally just put a towel over the drain to cover the smell. Also there was a loud band playing Saturday night, but that was the only night.

This is Not the location or place to stay if you want to experience the city. I was there to see the Day of the Dead ceremonies and the Zocolo. You can reach down town by cab for 35 pasos.

This hotel is just outside the ring road and near nothing special, but a quick cab ride or moderate walk to major attractions. Can be quiet, or noisy during a weekend if your room faces a party next door or downstairs. Nice breakfast buffet; dinner was unremarkable. Rooms are spacious and decently appointed; air conditioning unit worked fine; shower only (no tub, not that I ever use one). #1 complaint is that the wireless internet works at LESS than dial-up speeds. Power went out for 20-30 minutes during a storm, but the room was equipped with a candle & matches (obviously a regular occurrence!). Overall, the only reason to stay here would be price or a meeting.

Location - on the edge of the historic centre, easy walk to Zocolo. Very quiet.
Staff - quite helpful.
Services - gym inadequate. Pool nice. Grounds very well kept with gardens that give the place a good feel. Restaurant had good breakfast and the one meal that I had there was good. It seemed very popular with locals during my stay which made it much more interesting than most hotel restaurants and must say something for the food.
Room - a little rundown but very clean. Bed was very comforable and the size of the room was good.
Summary - this is a good budget hotel and I enjoyed my stay.
