I just got back after spending a week at the Hotel Monte Alban. First off it is right across from the Church on the large Zacolo, perfect for people watching if you have a Balcony facing the square. The hotel is old and full of history. Originally it was built as a private residence for the Bishop of the church. It them became a hotel and has been ever since. The family that owns it now has had the hotel in the family for over fifty years. They have a nightly The Guelaguetza, is an annual indigenous cultural dance event in Mexico that takes place in the city of Oaxaca one being here at this hotel. Beautiful traditional dancing with costume. They also have a daily Comida Corrida (A pre set meal with a few choices on your side dishes) 3 courses and beverage for a very good price and pretty decent meal. You know it must be good when the dining room is filled with locals having lunch.
As for the room we had a two bed room with a small balcony. The room is simple, clean and fine if your not looking for too many frills. The ceilings are very high and just beautiful with the large wooden beams. The room was cleaned everyday and found everyone that worked there to be very pleasant and helpful; I would totally go back and stay here, just overall a great historical place perfectly located.
