“Amazing, clean, friendly, worth-it, perfecto, increible!”
Reviewed 27 May 2011

Posada del Centro had an incredibley friendly and helpful staff; beautiful and clean courtyards, perfectly clean rooms with comfortable beds. Very comfortable. No bugs, clean fresh water, coffee in the morning. This hotel is perfect for anyone on a budget or even without a budget. The rooms have either private baths or shared (we shared a bath and walked across the courtyard for the bathroom) and it was still very nice. Very clean, kept up, not filled with people, good showers, no bugs. The rooms had ample space, closets. The staff helped us to understand everything we needed to know and even let us talk to them in Spanish (as they saw we really wanted to practice) and talked to us in perfect english only when we really needed. They were great and gave us an unbeatable deal. The place was perfect for a beer in the courtyard at sundown, quiet peace and a 3 minute walk to zocala, all transit, the bus stations for Mitla and Monte Alban...amazing. I would absolutely return and be delighted to stay with them.

Room Tip: ask about deals, no tips needed!

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of January. We had a lovely room on the ground floor on the inner courtyard. The staff were great and organized trips for us to Mitla and Monte Alban. Both trips were excellent. They also recommended Cafe Alex, down the street, for breakfast. If you are not very adventurous, Taco Inn (on the Zocalo) is a good place for lunch.

We stayed here for 3 nights and then came back for another 5 after a brief jaunt to the coast. The rooms are simple but very clean and the courtyard/lobby is beautiful, with lots of plants and colour.

The sevice was impeccable, all the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel offers a choice of single, double, twin, triple and quad rooms; with ensuite or shared bathrooms.

They also offer tours, laundry, coffee and biscuits and as many maps as you can handle! (About 1 per day!..there really is no refusing them)

I strongly reccommend this place - and only costs around £15/$30 a night!

Reviewed 15 July 2009

La Posada del Centro is a very nice place to stay for a few days in Oaxaca. It's 3 streets away from the Zocalo and has a very nice patio where you can rest and read. We checked the rooms first and I recommend the ones on the 2nd patio at the 1st floor, which are lighter than the ones downstairs. For 400pesos, we had a room with king size bed and our bathroom, and for 450pesos, one for 3 persons, so if the hotel is not full, you can definitively negociate the price!
The room is good size, you have place to put your things and a tv. The bathroom is clean, but a little small, but for a week-end it's really OK!
Staff is nice, you can have an internet access and there is a parking for the cars a few blocks away.

Reviewed 12 March 2008

I traveled abroad with a college class I was taking. We went to work at the orphanage called Casa Hogar. The location of the hotel was about 3 short blocks from the zocolo. During our stay there (3 weeks), the small store located in the front of the hotel was transformed into a mini restaurant selling drinks and sandwiches which was convenient for us because you can just walk right in without leaving the hotel. The rooms were pretty big, however we did see a few bugs in our beds on the first night and also a few cockroaches here and there. But this is Mexico...I wouldn't let this ruin your impressions of the place! I'm the biggest bug freak and hate them, yet for some reason you kind of need to let that go while in Oaxaca. The staff was very friendly and there is a desk staff person there 24 hours. They close the big gate leading into the courtyard of the hotel from the street at about 11pm so you have to knock if you're coming back from a late night and show them your key. This helps keep the riff-raff out. I would encourage you to stay here if you're looking for a traditional at-home feel yet which is close to anything you could ever need!

  • Liked — The real at-home feel, authentic Oaxacan decorations
  • Disliked — The bathroom was small
