My family members and I met in Oaxaca for a week's vacation. They chose Casa Bugambilias based on reviews they had read. Due to passport delays I booked later and had to stay next door for the first two nights because Casa Bugambilias was full. The first hotel I stayed in was adequate, but moving to Casa Bugambilias was like upgrading to luxury. Bugambilias is beautifully appointed with lovely artwork and crafts. There is a very pretty courtyard with a wall of bougainvillea (bugambilias) and tables for sitting or dining. Upstairs is a very attractive common area with couches, television, bookshelf loaded with a variety of books, and a computer for guests to use. They have wifi. Different rooms have different amenities, so if you have special needs, ask for specifics. I stayed upstairs in the Iris room, which has air-conditioning (which I used every night), a modern but small bathroom with shelving and cabinet for toiletries and a blow dryer. The bath towels were large, thick and soft. I didn't see any shampoo or conditioner. The Iris room was beautifully decorated, with two beds, a safe for small valuables, a very small balcony (just large enough to stand on and talk to my brother directly below on the first floor patio), a bed that too hard for my preference, a full pitcher of filtered water with access to more water as needed in the kitchen. There aren't an abundance of electrical outlets, basically one on each side of the bed and one in the bathroom, so if you have multiple gadgets, you might want to bring an adapter that allows you to plug a few devices into one socket. My brother on the first floor said the noise in the early morning was somewhat disturbing, so I was glad I ended up on the second floor, because noise was never a problem. The breakfasts were very nice: coffee, breads, butter and jams, yogurt and granola, two juices to choose from, a small plate of fresh fruit, and then a hot dish which was different every day. The cooking staff was very friendly and service was given with a smile. The room was cleaned during the day and always looked immaculate. Violeta at the front desk was very patient and friendly, providing directions, calling a cab, recommending a restaurant, or helping as needed. The staff really seemed to care about satisfying their guests and providing a good experience. The location of Bugambilias is convenient, with easy walking distance to the main pedestrian strip (Alcala), shops, restaurants, etc. The street is very busy with traffic. All in all, Casa Bugambilias is a lovely, well-run establishment with friendly, warm, accommodating staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or to stay there again if I returned to Oaxaca.
