“Can't say enough about Casa los Arquitos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2007

Our stay at Casa los Arquitos was unforgettable. We wanted to spend our time in a place that felt as close to home as possible, without the sterile feel of a hotel--and this was it. When we arrived we were surprised to see how tasteful the room was decorated, despite it being so affordable. We found ourselves taking pictures of everything on our cobblestone street (Rufino Tamayo). Although it is about 7 blocks from the Zocalo, the location was totally worth it. We looked forward to the walk down to the Zocalo. The rooms were cleaned everyday, the breakfast was a refreshing way to start our day, and having internet access was a plus. Juan and Patricia were more than happy to give us information regarding the city's history and places to see. They offerred us the option of going on a private tour with a reliable taxi driver. As a result, we got a close-up of nearby towns.

Juan and Patricia went beyond their role of hosts and were there for us when I injured my ankle at the Monte Alban ruins. I had to be transported to the Red Cross hospital via ambulance. It was reassuring to see them at the hospital when the ambulance doors opened. Patricia is a doctor so I was relieved to know that she was observing my treatment as well. The extra-special care they provided was something only a family member would do. They didn't even charge for all the extra work they did. We look forward to returning to Oaxaca and staying at Casa los Arquitos where we spent 12 magnificent days.

As my friend and I first drove through Oaxaca we were a little worried at our choice since we hadn't picked a spot away from the city. We were pleasantly surprised when we opened the doors to our B&B and Patricia and Juan greeted us with smiling faces. They were expecting our arrival and had everything to the tee ready for us. Fresh flowers in our room, wonderful breakfast. The rooms are clean, quaint and there are only about 5 of them so you feel like you are staying in someone's home, but you still have the privacy of your own room and paio area. I can't say enough nice things about the owners and I feel like they are our Oaxacan family now. The Zocalo and art shops are walking distance and we felt very safe. There is a computer/internet available right outside your room anytime for you to use. My friend and I had a wonderful time in Oaxaca and can't wait to go back next year for Day of the Dead!! and stay at Los Arquitos.. Real inexpensive half of what other B&B's were charging too...

This B & B is an oasis in the city. The neighborhood is quiet and charming, yet centrally located. It’s on a cobblestone street, under the arches of the old aqueduct, with cafes and lots of excellent restaurants nearby, in addition to an organic market, a music school, a gym, and other positive neighborhood features. The Santo Domingo Church, the Zocolo, and other heart-of-the-city sites are a very short and pleasant walk. The B & B itself is tranquil, comfortable and pretty. Owners Juan and Paty Fuentes are gracious hosts, and made our stay special. Paty has an impeccable eye, and has decorated the premises tastefully, with black and white photos of old Oaxaca, hand weavings and ceramics; the decor is charming and simple, without being overdone or busy. Beds are firm and comfy. This was one of the nicest places I’ve stayed, during my many travels.

We loved this charming B&B and the quaint neighborhood it is in. The owners, Juan and Paty, are delightful and gave their all to make our stay comfortable. The location is great; about a mile from the Zocalo and an easy and beautiful walk downtown , also next to the organic Pochote market and close to Llano Park, which was full of interesting houses and unique shops and restaurants with an authentic untouristy feeling . The rooms are a great value, all well decorated with the indigenous crafts and good bathrooms and refrigerators. Two of the rooms are especially useful as they have microwaves and small stoves as well as frig for cooking mini meals. But the daily breakfast on offer is excellent also. There is a real ambience to the little courtyard and very secure and seemingly far from the active downtown area. I would return in a heartbeat and hope to stay there again.

My wife and I vey much enjoyed our two weeks with Paty and Juan.
The location is perfect -- a few minutes from Santo Domingo Cathedral and a 10 minute walk to the Zocalo. The rooms are spotlessly maintained and your host are charming and very accomodatling.

Oaxaca, like most of Mexico, is noisy by American and Canadian standards but Casa Los Arquitos is about
as quiet a stay as we have had in our many trips to Mexico.

We would definitley return.

I stayed here in 2005 when the Fuentes just first opened their B&B. It was a good value at the time; for the smallest room (no window) it cost 180 pesos/night; for the second-smallest room it was 250 pesos/night. They have at least doubled their prices since I stayed there, so I'm not sure I'd stay there again, but at the time it was a fair deal. It's very quiet, immaculate, and the Fuentes are a very nice couple. Plus, it's on the most charming street in all of Oaxaca.

Patricia and Juan were wonderful hosts and treated us like family during our stay. They were very responsive on email prior to arriving and helped us every day with our adventures. We were very surprised and pleased at how welcoming they were and at how clean and well-kept the rooms were. We now feel like we have friends in Oaxaca and will recommend everyone to stay at Casa Los Arquitos. We will be back, too!
