“Friendly little hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I stayed in this wonderful little hotel during Dia de los Muertos festival and it was wonderful. Luis snd Odilia were super friendly and helpful during our stay. The hotel was only three blocks away from the Zocala so it was an esasy stroll to all the sites.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with friends

Great value for money, especially when finding a room during the Day of the Dead festival proved difficult. The room was on the small side and, with both the door and window facing internal courtyards, it was rather noisy. Overall, though, not a bad visit if on a budget.

Location was very good. It was in the middle of everything. Easy access to historical center, shops and other places. The staff was friendly. Beautiful courtyard.
Rooms are a little old, very small room. No safety box in the room. Thin walls, very noisy, poor sleep. Bathroom very, very small, in need of repair. Window-door inside the hotel, no windows to the street. Poor value for money.

Very clean, good location, pretty interior, smiley staff. Gave 4 out of 5 for the service only because staff don't speak English so it was hard to communicate with them but their friendliness and helpfulness made up greatly for it!!!

Stayed there for 3 days at October 2012.
The hotel has good location - between the Basilica la Soledad and Zocalo.
Very nice people at the reception - so helpful with everything you need. I'm not sure if they're good in english but if you know spanish - better for you. Maybe they speak english also, didn't check that :)
All the rooms have their names not numbers. Loved that! My room had no window but I didn't really need that for sleeping only. I had small room but with the big bed and bathroom had all I need. There were a TV but I think I didn't even turn it on:)
At the night time they closing outside hotels door so you can feel safe inside (but I never felt unsafe even at the night time walking alone through the street). The wifi is good enough at the reception area. In my room I couldn't connect.
If you are 'early bird' so you should go to the Zocalo to have tortas and champorado - all the locals have such a breakfast, don't be afraid to try the same. Its pretty cheap (20 pesos for all), hot and yummy. All the cafes and restaurants opening about 9:30-10:00 a.m. Oh yeah, not far from the hotel on the way to Zocalo there's a small cafe with the most delicious churros I've ever tried in all Mexico! Try churros rellenas con dulce leche y chocolate! Mmmmm...
You can buy any tour to see surroundings from the reception. The price will surprise you in a good way, Oaxaca is the real Mexico with the real prices, not touristic as at Playa del Carmen or Cancun. I've arrived early morning and bought a tour started at 10:30 a.m. to the Monte Alban. Hierve el Agua, Fabrica de Mezcal and smtg else - is a whole-day tour. But this is a must visit at Oaxaca surroundings.
At the city: Basilica la Soledad is very nice at the sunset and at the night-lights. Zocalo is full of live music and people having fun or just watching at that at the night time also.
Don't forget to buy Oaxaqueña souvenirs - alebrijes - it's fairytale animals hand-crafted and hand-painted with the beautiful colors.
Would love to back at Oaxaca, it's totally different from all the cities I've visited in Mexico. And I'd love to stay Oaxaca Magico hotel again. Mostly because of good location and nice people working there.

I stayed in this hotel a couple of nights with my wife during our trip in Mexico, on our way from Mexico City to San Cristóbal de las Casas.

The location is great, very close to the center (Zócalo and Alcalá) and to night life (check out the Café Central). Our room was clean and comfortable, small but cozy. Although it didn't have windows facing outside, it had air conditioning. Drinking water was available for free. The Internet connection was fast and reliable. All the staff was extremely nice and professional. They kept our heavy luggage for a day after we checked out in the morning, free of charge.

This hotel is a good choice for an affordable and comfortable holiday in the beautiful city of Oaxaca.

Hotel was clean and easy to find way to Zocolo, but since they do not provide breakfast if they only would have had a coffee pot in the lobby. We stayed for 7 nights and rooms were clean. No one at the front desk spoke English but yet we communicated. They let me use the phone if I needed to and were always cleaning the place.
