I have stayed at Casa del Sótano on two occasions, each time for multiple nights. It is clean & quiet, & the staff is friendly & helpful. This is an unpretentious yet rustic & nice little hotel. It is a pleasant three- or four-block walk from the pedestrian center street, Alcala, yet it seems a little off the beaten path, which is very nice. The "mirador" (the large upper deck of the hotel) has an incomparable view of the city & surrounding mountains. We had a delicious breakfast of chilaquiles and enchiladas with fresh green & red salsas one morning at the quaint outdoor breakfast cafe. There are nice views of the surrounding mountains from the outdoor breakfast space, as well. On our last evening we shared a very affordable meal of three different appetizers in the cafe bistro in the front of the hotel. The ingredients were very fresh (as most all of Oaxacan food is). Our dishes were pretty, affordable & most importantly delicious. The guacamole with chapulines (crispy, seasoned crickets sprinkled on chunks of fresh avocado mixed with lime, tomato, onion & jalapeño or serrano) was especially delicious. The service was friendly, efficient & knowledgable, making for a very enjoyable & informative experience at a great price. The room's bathroom & shower are simple and somewhat small. The beds are comfortable & the rooms are rustic. The wifi is free & works. This hotel is not for those who like high-end places; rather it is for folks who enjoy more rustic & simple yet unique & affordable places.
