“Great Location, Great B&B”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

After the long bus trip with two very tired bodies Maria's warm welcome and yummy lunch recommendation was exactly what we needed. The House was very relaxed and casual and only a short walk away from all the action. It was a great location! Breakfasts were a great start to everyday would definitely recommend.

El Diablo y La Sandia was the perfect B&B in Oaxaca. The rooms were all very clean - simple but with a lot of character. Great location, excellent breakfasts. Maria had great restaurant recommendations and helped us plan several excursions. Highly recommended!

I stayed at El Diablo y La Sandia for a few days in February and had a wonderful visit. My room and bath were clean, cozy and comfortable. The breakfasts were great and while composed of local foods were delicious for a tongue unfamiliar with the foods. Maria, the owner/hostess, is a world traveler herself and was available to answer all questions fully. She also has her own special brand of mescal, which I bought for my son, who rates it highly!

This place fits in so well with the character of Oaxaca, it definitely adds to the overall experience. Rooms are clean and lovely. Breakfast in the interior patio is a treat -- you meet interesting people, the food is delicious and the filtered morning light is so energizing. Central location makes it easy to walk everywhere in town.

Room Tip: Pick a room in the back/interior to avoid street noise.

The owner of this B&B believes in customer service. Everything you desire is there, and the helpfulness of the staff evokes a lovely transparency that is missing in many B&Bs.
The open courtyard consists of a dining area and a large kitchen. Most of the rooms flank the courtyard. Up a flight of stairs is another room and a covered deck.
Location is one of the best amenities. The B&B is seven blocks from Zacatecas Cathedral and Plaza de Armas. Everything in historic Oaxaca is within walking distance. All this without paying the $$$ of the hotels in the district.
Maria is an unflappable host. She has lived in England and France and speaks the King's English and de Gaulle's French.
Great spot!
