La Villada Inn
Ranked #20 of 132 Oaxaca B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 July 2011

My husband and myself and our 8 year old son stayed here in July, initially we were booked in for 2 nights but stayed for 4 as we just didn't want to leave. Julietta and her brothers are the most helpful and friendly hosts and their children are adorable. I can't fault this place, it is a short taxi ride into town but this never bothered us. It is very nice to be up in the hills and the view really makes it. Our son loved the pool. Our room was nicely decorated and very clean and comfortable, we had a terrace and a view of the hills right from our room. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend La Villada Inn.

Room Tip: All the rooms are well appointed.

Very nice hostel once you are there.

The access is very complicated (on a hill with a lot of a little street).
There is a parking on site, and by car you need 15mn to go in the centre.

In exchange for the bad location, the hostel is very welcoming, spacious and pleasing.
Too much cold in the night during december, the rooms are badly isolated and extra covers were needed.
Internet not available from all the rooms.
Not very clean, and the shower was a bit rusty.
Still a good experiences :)

Very peaceful location with great views above the city. The property is well-maintained and comfortable. If you want to get away from the city center, this is a good choice. Bilingual owners are very helpful. Good food, WIFI, limited hot water so be quick. Secure parking if you have a car. The pool looked nice, and I'm sure it's great to have during the summer. 50-60 peso taxi to the Centro. Take the map with you if you go into town- it would be difficult to explain to the taxi drivers.

The Villada Inn is set on one of the hillsides surrounding Oaxaca City. A quick (and cheap around 60 pesos mx) taxi ride from ADO bus station - slightly longer from the 2nd class bus station (around 90 pesos mx) .... one mounts towards a little bit of paradise !
The family owners are very helpful and kind.
The kitchen and room ladies are quietly professional and friendly in their reserved Zapotec way.
The rooms are built with Adobe bricks and quite nicely furnished - for the larger group or family rooms - they all have big king size beds and extra singles. The hot water is good - once you get used to the taps - often round the wrong way (hot on the left !) ..... should you have trouble with yours - just ask and it will be explained to you.
They have a restaurant (simple, clean and tasty food) serving breakfast, lunch and early dinner - they close at 8pm. The fridge is well stocked with beer and soda - with an honesty policy wereby you note your own drinks consumed.
This was my third trip - I loved it all and I shall return !!
There are dormatories too for those on a tighter budget - or double beds rooms too.

Spent a day and night with a friend who lives in Mexico who recommended La Villada. Drove up a winding road and through large metal gate into the facility. Standing in courtyard brought a tranquil feeling compared to the hustle and bustle of Oaxaca city. Extremely helpful and friendly staff who helped us check in.

Comfortable room and bed, warm decor and great view of the city. The rooms are not heated, it got down to 63 degree F in the morning so was cold. Surprised to find out that noise carried in from the next room. Heard the guest next door talking on his cell. Minor inconvenienced though. Loved the hammocks outside the room. The wooden pillars and ceiling in the restaurant were covered with messages from guests from different part of the world.

Would definitely return, good price for a place with great atmosphere and character.

We just left La Villada Inn yesterday, and we miss it already. It was a great stay with great owners who are helpful in both English and Spanish. They had great suggestions on what to do and see. The kitchen staff was hit or miss....some of them were extremely unfriendly and did not appear to enjoy helping us. However, Yaya was the sweetest woman there. Our room was very clean, though our toliet paper was never refilled after it ran out. We stayed for a week, and with 4 girls in a room that proved to be an issue. The location is beautiful. The cab to the zocalo is about 50 pesos, but it was great to be away from the city center. It was like our own little oasis.
