The most enjoyable stay i had in the 2 weeks i was in Mexico, I was on a tight schedule and unfortunately only had 2 days in Oaxaca and so wished i had made time for more.
From the first point of contact over the internet with the owners John and Judith, i knew i was going to enjoy myself. They informed me on things to do and see and organised a local guide to drive us around which was a blessing, there is sooo much to do and see and it is such a beautiful city.
The Ollin is located just 2 blocks from the centre of town which was perfect.
The Ollin Bed and Breakfast was fabulous, we were welcomed by 3 of the staff who were lovely, the rooms were very clean, comfy and had a true mexican style to them (mosaic tiles, carved wooden bed, mexican blankets etc) there is a nice pool to cool off after a day of sightseeing and the home area is a great place to meet other travellers and listen to John tell a few of his own, you may even be lucky as we were and be offered a sip of his own barreled and distilled Mezcal (puts hairs on your chest) but enjoyable all the same. The breakfast was lovely, pastries are devine and mexican fare delicious.
I can't say enough about this bed and breakfast, i highly recommend it and hope to be back again one day. Thankyou John and Judith, and next time i will teach you how to eat those Tim Tams properley :)
