A teacher friend and I went to Oaxaca with a group of university students, who were staying across the street. We wanted something more economical and larger, and the Maela fit the bill well. We were pleased with the room. It was nothing fancy, but was large, we each got a big bed, and everything was very clean. The shower was separated from the sink area in the bathroom, so two people could be getting ready at the same time, also. There was a lovely breeze at night, even though the days were hot outside the room, and with several windows in the room, we got good air circulation. (Inside was pleasant during the day. But who stays inside when you can see Oaxaca City?) It is a fair walk into the main part of town, so is not as convenient as places by the Zocalo but much quieter and more economical. Plus, the area near the hotel is nice, too. The staff was very accommodating, as my friend got the flu and could not travel for a few hours after check-out; but they let her stay on till she could travel later in the day, without charging her more. I would definitely stay there again.
