Reviewed 13 April 2009

This small, quaint hotel is close to the center of town, and all the action, but is on a quiet street with little traffic. The family run hotel was SO accommodating, and friendly. the hotel is spotless, and the contiential breakfast daily was more than enough. We also had free internet access. This is a GREAT place to stay in Oaxaca.

Spent two weeks here most of the time in a double special room which was spacious and comfortable. Had microwave, bathtub and lots of furniture and drawers. Had to spend 3 nights in a double room. It was cramped and I would not stay here very long if that was all I could get. The breakfast varied depending who was working. Most mornings it was pretty uninspiring, but OK, mostly toast and strawberry jam.

A few mornings, another staff member did breakfast and we had 3 selections of jam, fruit bread and a large selection of fruit and it was brought to our room.

The hotel is clean, well located and the staff were very obliging. There is a bar next door which has loud music until 11 or so.

Would stay here again if I could get the double special or king room.

A gem! My husband and I stayed at Casa de los Frailes for eleven days in Feb. '09. This small hotel is lovely, cozy, cheery, spotless, and tastefully decorated. The rooms were large and very comfortable. Our suite had it's own patio. On the roof there is a comfortable sitting area with a view of the city. Margarita, the owner, and her staff were outstanding! All were gracious, would help in any way they could and always greeted us with warm smiles. A very nice continental breakfast with fresh fruit, cereal, rolls, was included in the reasonable room rates. The location was ideal...just a 5 min walk to Santo Domingo church, restaurants and a few blocks to the zocalo and historical sights. When we return to Oaxaca we will definitely stay at Casa de los Frailes again!

I read the past reviewer's comments ( about noise). We were on the first floor - and we were there for a Friday and Saturday night - we did not have problems with noise.. and I would be upset if there were noise- but it was quiet . Our overhead fan was squeaky but other than that -

Breakfast was somewhat lackluster and consisted of toast, and a bit of fruit .But, it was sufficient.
Someone was always at the front desk, and the front door was locked at night ( and included a video camera to detect who was at the front door!). I felt safe. Hotel was located near the zocala which is the central location. The room was clean, and the staff exceptionally helpful. Bathrooms could use some refurbishment but there were NO bugs or ants. I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again if I were in the area.

If you want a reasonably priced hotel room, that is very clean, then stay here - otherwise go to the Camino a few blocks away and pay a lot more. .

Several of our relatives and friends (both Mexicans and Americans) stayed here when we were married in Oaxaca and everyone raved about it. I got to see several of the rooms as a result and they were really nice, one even had it's own private terrace with a seating area. The staff as very friendly and helpful, I always thought it was great how attentive they were when we went in to leave messages or meet with family. They also put flowers in the rooms of the guests coming for the wedding, which was a sweet touch. It's in an excellent location with a roof terrace and is small and personable. I've been recommending it a great deal!

A great location, BUT. Don't count on restfull nights. The rooms are exposed and on Friday and Saturday in particular we had substantial street and, sadly, guest noise until after 3 am. The service is obliging and friendly, but it was still necessary to wake up the staff at 7.30 to get breakfast going..which, according to a front desk notice is supposed to start at 7.30. The rooms and particularly the bathrooms need fundamental maintenance and upgrading. They are in the early stages of decay. The A/C unit was a joke. The owners are very personable, but they seem to be living in another era and unfortunately are letting this property slowly wind down. Not a good sign for the future.
