Hotel Las Mariposas is tiny jewel near the busy center of Oaxaca. Run by a competant and helpful staff, it is pleasant, safe, clean and friendly. Guests gather in the central courtyard for breakfast, make friends and sometimes share activities.Some of the rooms are small, but the modest price makes even the tiniest rooms a good bargain. Local woman stop by to perpare fresh tortillas on the comal with squash blossoms and cheese for breakfast, or sell woven ruges and purses. The ambience is cheerful and easy.
This is not a fancy hotel and it is certainly not perfect--though it IS wonderful! Though the space is private and secluded, it is in the hear tof the city and large festivals in the nearby Park Jlanos can be loud. Since Oaxacanos shoot off fireworks for most weddings and celebrations, plan to bring earplugs for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe and other holidays.
Las Mariposas is quite central and you easily walk to the Alcada, Santa Domingo, and the Zocalo as well as lovely restaurants, language schools, museums and markets. Taxis, busses and collectivos are available for travel to villiages in the Oaxaca valley.
Many visitors book Las Mariposas repeatedly year after year. I certainly plan to go again!
