“Lovely, very clean and close to all important spots!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

My husband and I spent 5 days in this lovely Posada! So clean, comfortable and cosy!! It was high season but the very friendly staff let us to make a good deal for the smallest room they had! Even small it was perfect for us!!! We used the shared bathroom which was very clean with good hot showers! Room is cleaned daily and towels are changed.They offer free water and free coffee with cookies in the morning. The patio is perfect for a chat or a drink at night! And really close to the Zocalo. We left the hotel and spent 4 days hiking and they were great to let our stuff in the hotel for any charge!!!! The price is not high and fair for what they offer!! We definitely recommend it!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

Very nice hotel (and cheap in low season) in the center of Oaxaca, close to Zocalo, and not too far from the market, Santo Domingo church or buses for Monte Alban (Calle Mina), and colectivos for 1st class bus terminal pass nearby. We paid 300 pesos for a huge room -a double bed plus a single one, very very comfortable too- with impossibly high ceiling, awesome value. There is a free water and coffee, and rooms are cleaned daily. The shared bathrooms were also clean, with hot showers. The staff was fairly friendly. Wifi didn't reach our room (n.11) too well, but it was ok in the patio.
The patio was our only problem - it was quiet at night (from 10 or 11 pm) but starting early morning we could hear people talking, as if they were in our room. And as the hotel has many people working there, there is always somebody around chatting, so forget about your afternoon nap. I guees the rooms with private bathroom don't have this problem as they have a separate patio and nobody was hanging out there. But they cost more than twice as much...

Go eat at the market (Calle 29 de noviembre, between Aldama and Mina), the foodcourt is fabulous. Our favorite place was comedor Chabelita (when you enter from Aldama street, it's on the far left side), the tlayudas were great!
And for good and cheap tortas, try Mercado Sanchez Pascuas, above Santo Domingo Temple.

Room Tip: Get a room as far from the street and from the reception as you can, or it might be hard to sleep (r...

We stayed in Posada del Centro in January 2013 and found it to be a lovely place to stay. It was very clean, comfortable with helpful staff. We had the room right off the roof deck which was a great place to hang out. The man at the front desk (owner?) was warm and friendly and definitely contributed to a pleasant stay. The location, near the zocalo, is also close to everything. I would definitely recommend this hotel. (Most of the hot water is from solar - also a plus).

Room Tip: upstairs off the roof deck

Very simple.. but spotless and I must say the best beds I slept on during my vacation to the State of Oaxaca and this was the cheapest room I paid for. They are extremely accomodating .. and the location CANNOT be beat !!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

We went to this hotel because of the reviews on trip advisor. We liked it. It's quite a simple place and the room we initially had (12) was small with a lot of light at night and noisy, with no hot water. We asked about the water and were moved to a much more beautiful room (15) when they couldn't fix it for us. The staff were very friendly and the morning coffee was very good. Close by the center, but far enough out to feel like a local (only 3 blocks, but it made a nice difference). Would return.

Room Tip: Look at your room first :)

The helpful staff was attentive from check in, stored our bags on the last day while we traveled on the last day, and was great throughout. The rooms and shared bathroom was clean. There are private bathrooms as well.

The free coffee and wi-fi are nice touches as well. Located blocks from the Zocalo, this is an excellent place to stay.

The only downside is that the walls are minimally thin, which could be hard for very light sleepers.
