The location could not be better. Just 2 blocks away from Sto Domingo. Quiet hotel with auper friendly staff and personalized attention, the rooms are very big but the decoration could definitely improve.

This is a lovely, small B&B, in an excellent location. The rooms are beautifully appointed. Many amenities. The staff is very caring. Terrific breakfast. Good WiFi at no additional cost. I would stay there again anytime.

Overall, Casa Catrina offers pleasant accommodations and is well located. They were the first hotel I've ever stayed at to refuse to provide a second washcloth! Many places in the world don't provide any, but Casa C provided only one in the bathroom?! When I asked for another, they refused and told me that was all they had! There were two of us in the room, did they think we would share a washcloth? While the breakfast service is prompt, its a very meager offering of a roll or two and juice, and the coffee is horribly weak. I'd just as soon pay another 50-60 pesos a night and have a breakfast that seemed hospitable and generous.

Love the reviews as they are veryhelpful but hopefully some reviewers give accurate information, the hotel has 6 rooms not 4, andit is true expensive doens't mean better that is the reasons for reviews so you as a customer in advance have an idea on what to expect and of course while in the hotel make sure everythign that was offered is on the contract. We spend 4 wonderful day in our honey moon in Casa catrina, breakfast was fine iwth us, we didn't want to spend the whole day inside a hotel, there are plenty of good places out there in Oaxaca. Service was great and we use the basement "bar" for a farewell party with some of our guest asther the wedding. Love the place, extra pay for privacy was worth it.

Room Tip: The Red room was great and we have a surprise welcome decoration with flores, fruits and some drinks

We spent 9 days at Casa Catrina for the Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Oaxaca. This is a lovely boutique hotel/B & B with only 6 rooms. Our room was wonderful (the Rojo suite), very clean, and we had excellent service. Full delicious breakfast was served each morning in the lovely inside courtyard. Our king size bed and down pillows were excellent. The staff is amazing and treated us with every kindness. Good location in a bustling area, about 7 blocks from the Zocolo. Great restaurants and shops abound. We hope to return again in a year or so and will try to stay again at Casa Catrina

Room Tip: Try to get a room with windows. A couple rooms are interior rooms.

This hotel is a small but very personal and detailed hotel, food is excellent, rooms are all different all very nice, service is excellent and very personalized. Very very close to all major attractions (walking distance). Hotel is secure and beds and linens are excellent quality. Spacious bathroom with hot water and AC for those very hot days.

Room Tip: Biggest room is the Red Room

For us like a family (3 kids) it's very important to have a nice and beautiful hotel. Otherwise vacacions won't be relaxing. At Casa Catrina we felt like home - even the kids. It was our 2nd stay there and we'll will regress for sure.
