“Friendly and relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

A small welcoming hotel, within easy walking distance of the zocalo. There with a lovely rooftop terrace/ garden where you can eat breakfast while enjoying views of the surrounding city and hills. The rooms are small but comfortable and most importantly quiet.

We really liked this hotel. We stayed on the top floor in room 10, and it was indeed a great choice. I didn't really see much of the other rooms, other than peeks, I don't know if I would stay there unless I had that top floor room however, since they seemed small and dark to me....however, the staff were very helpful and the top deck was beautiful. I would stay again.

Room Tip: Room 10! Loved watching the moon rise from the bed.

Hola kbing53 and thanks for writing!
Everybody loves Room 10…but we ALSO have guests who deliberately request other favourite rooms…and for stays of up to a month.
Some rooms have skylights; others have large windows onto the courtyard…
And EVERYBODY LOVES the rooftop terrace garden.
We look forward to seeing you again – AND we’ll be glad to hold Room 10 for you, Donna

Everything about this little hotel is great, we could have stayed for a lot longer than we did. It's perfectly situated, just 5 minutes from the centre, so you're right in the heart of the place but enough of a step away from the centre to get some peace. It's also just up on the brow of a hill, so the gentle breeze it gets is a relief when the rest of the place is getting a bit steamy. Great breakfasts, lovely helpful staff, sweet rooms, very very good value. Oaxaca is a gem of a place and this is a gem of a hotel. We will definitely be back! Thank you for a lovely stay!

We spent 15 days at the hotel. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We love the rooftop patio with its riot of colorful plants and sun umbrellas on the tables. The breakfast is delicious and healthy. Fruit,granola, yogurt,bread,fresh juice and great coffee. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the downstairs open patio is delightful. Excellent wifi. It is a short walk to the Zocolo and various museums. Just enough exercise to keep us in shape. The owner is sharp and helpful and knows so much about Oaxaca. The managers are also organized friendly and helpful. Would stay there again. Thank you for a wonderful time. Accidentally rated the swimming pool. There is no pool so ignore the rating.

Room Tip: We love the room on the roof. We call it the penthouse. We were there during the full moon and had a...

Hi Michele H…Thanks for loving EVERYTHING about our hotel!
The wonderful thing about Oaxaca is that there is LOTS to do for 2 weeks or more…and we try to help our guests see a lot of it. Including some that is beyond the guidebooks.
It’s true that we don’t have a pool…but we do have a lovely fountain with 4 very handsome and congenial turtles.

We’re looking forward to seeing you again, Donna and the staff of Hotel Azucenas

We spent six nights at Azucenas and loved it. This hotel is restful, quiet, cheerful, very very pretty and Mexican, and best of all it is well organized and functions very well. These people know how to make guests feel welcome! Anything you might need or want? They have it, will get it, or will call someone to bring it to you! The location is excellent for us b/c it is about 1.5 blocks from the plaza at La Soledad which is FULL OF ICE CREAM cafes. It's easy to get a cab to the Zocalo and markets, and the hotel's recommended taxis for longer trips are excellent. We felt right at home in this small friendly hotel. And, while we were there, the owner and staff were celebrating a birthday. We got up to the terrace for breakfast, and there was Donna the owner, offering us bowls of delicious celebratory bread pudding. I don't think you can go wrong with Hotel Azucenas! We'll be back.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a "bad" room at this hotel.

Just returned from our first trip to Oaxaca and had the good fortune to stay at the Hotel Azucenas. Friendly and knowledgable staff and owner helped us make the most of our visit. Main floor room was clean and comfortable, albeit some traffic noise the first night that was subsequently masked by a white noise fan. Quality wi-fi accessible in all areas including the lovely roof top patio. Easy walk to all historico centro sites. Will return.

Just got back from 10 wonderful days in Mexico, which began at the Hotel Azucenas. This is a delightful spot, within easy walking distance of virtually any point in the city but just far enough removed from the hubbub to feel restful. I kept thinking of the movie A Room With a View, both because the rooftop terrace affords a spectacular view of Oaxaca and the hills beyond, but also because the other guests all seemed to be people of substance and intrigue, the kind of travelers who tend to venture off the beaten path that make you want to linger longer on the terrace to hear their stories and get their suggestions for places to explore around the city. The staff is warm and well-informed and go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. Breakfasts were fresh and bountiful, flowers brightened every corner, and the mosaic work throughout the inn especially beautiful. You experience a real neighborhood, not a tourist zone, but once inside tranquility prevails. Our room was very quiet, and clean as a whistle. I don't think you'll find a better or more authentic place to perch in Oaxaca, nor a better roof with a view.

Room Tip: Our room was very quiet. The beds are VERY firm, a plus for some but I'm hoping there might be a...

Hola Wanderingwretch – it was wonderful to have you with us for 10 days! It’s true that our terrace is a great place for relaxing…whether that means taking yourself off with a book…or meeting other travelers from all over the world. We get GREAT guests!!
The neighborhood is great, too! A very special little café, La Bizcocheria, with homemade goodies – just down the street; a place on the corner that opens at 8 pm every night to serve homemade tostadas and quesadillas filled with your choice of about 10 fillings (try “chileajo vegetables”); or the newer Pan-Am Panaderia (bakery) – baking filled croissants, muffins and breads…
AND FOR THOSE WHO PREFER A SOFTER BED – we now have “bed toppers” that can be added to your mattress!
Hope to see you again, soon! Donna
