“Beautiful Oaxaca, Wonderful small hotel”
Reviewed 28 March 2008

The staff is gentle, helpful, always quick to answer your questions. We were trying to conserve water and didn't want our towels washed every day. Every day the maid would decorate our towels with the most intricate, beautiful animal shapes with flowers and place them on our bed - very romantic!

I loved that the hotel only had 8 rooms looking out into an open courtyard. It was a few short blocks to El Zocalo, the main plaza where each day and night there was something "happening. What a wonderful place for singles, families, couples, young and old.

San Felipe offers tours that I recommend taking. My husband and I are not "organized tour-type of people", but these semi-private tours, hosted by Jose Maria, are fabulous. He's a well-educated Zapotec gentleman who will speak English, Spanish and Zapotec to you, whatever is your pleasure. This is actually a MUST when going to Oaxaca because you would never be able to find these little villages on your own.

The hotel is very clean, mostly very quiet (there are tiles in the rooms and the courtyard which carry noise if something is talking very loudly) and a wonderful escape from your busy days going to villages, museums, churches, marketplaces. I will stay at the San Filipe if we are ever fortunate enough to return.!

  • Liked — Small, intimate hotel
  • Disliked — Unfortunately a woman upstairs could not, would not sleep and paced on the tile floors all night!
  • Stayed March 2008, travelled as a couple

My wife and I and two friends stayed at this Hostal from 07/15 to 07/22 this year in the hopes of seeing the Guelaguetza , a staff member even bought tickets for us but the event was cancelled due to the strike of the teacher's etc , despite that the resort ensured we went on great tours and were always very helpful. If one knows a little spanish it is helpful. The room was spotless and the location is very convenient. I highly recommend this small but nice hotel.

  • Liked — Convenience to the centro/ helpfulness of the staff
  • Disliked — all was good
  • Tips/Secrets — go on the small tours thsy arrange

I stayed there for 3 nights and it is lovely. It is an old house totally renewed and the rooms are charming, they reflect the atmosphere of Oaxaca some centuries ago.

Is is located 5 blocks from the main square and in general it is in a walking distance of the main atractions of Oaxaca.

We stayed there in November 2003 and in fact we used half of the hotel, due to it only has 6 rooms.

Highly recommended!
