Great place to stay!

Would recommend Mon, Nov 30, 2015
I loved this hotel. It was modern and updated yet still had traditional Mexican touches. The service was excellent. The manager greeted me when I arrived and throughout my stay was constantly asking if I needed anything. He really cared that customers were satisfied. The location in Oaxaca was perfect--close to everything! The breakfast had everything I wanted. I loved this hotel. I immediately tried to book my next stay at this hotel but unfortunately it was already full for the holidays. Great value for your money. I highly recommend!

Oaxaca, the best place to stay!

Would recommend Mon, Jun 30, 2014
The location of the Holiday Inn is perfect -- a few blocks away from all the noise and crowds, but close enough to enjoy a pleasant walk after dinner returning to the hotel. The staff was amazing and helpful. The breakfast is first class. And do not forget Café Arabia, right around the corner for an afternoon coffee or just a snack by the park. Lovely!

Attractions

The Zocalo, the cathedral, Santo Domingo museum are all within a short walk through a pedestrian zone filled with shops, restaurants and entertainment areas.

Holiday Inn Express OAXACA - worth it!

Would recommend Tue, Jun 25, 2013
The Hotel delivered as promised/expected. Cannot express anything different than gratitude and recognition to ALL STAFF, particularly Carlos, the Manager, who was on top of everything at all times (does he ever sleep?). At the hotel's lobby is a great travel agency that offers personalized/group tours to different nearby locations. Oaxaca is a wonderful place to visit; Hotel Holiday Inn Express is nicely located, only 6 blocks away from where all cultural activities occur at the Santo Domingo de Guzman exconvent and walkway, where most boutique hotels and stores are located.

Dining

Only 8 blocks away from the hotel (15mins walk) is Casa Oaxaca Restaurant. Fantastic food and service.

Friendly Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico

Would recommend Sun, Feb 27, 2011
The Hotel was a mini 5 star.. The staff was very kind and curtious. Our Spanish is very poor, but, we had very little trouble communicating and we never felt like we did not belong. We spent time touring Monte Alban, Churchs, local cultural/historical museums, and some amazing Art Gallerys. From the small street cafe to the upscale restaurant, the food was heaven on earth. The people made us feel like family.

Attractions

Monte Alban, please see the Santo Domingo cultural museum first. It helps understand the history. Many of the Art Gallery's are simply full of splendid talent.

Unexpectedly Great Hotel

Would recommend Wed, Feb 16, 2011
Oaxaca is a fascinating, beautiful, and safe destination. Despite good reviews on line, I confess I had low expectations of this hotel, having stayed in some mediocre Holiday Inn Express properties in the US. However, the hotel was extremely comfortable, with a large room, great view, very comfortable bed, and an exceptionally well-organized and efficient manager and staff. Breakfasts (included in price) were fabulous. Both the manager and the staff went way out of their way on several occasions to help us. Neighborhood is extremely quiet and residential, with easy access (1-2 blocks) to small stores, an ATM, and an internet cafe. Fabulous tourist attractions, shopping, and 5-star restaurants like La Olla are only 5-6 blocks away. We also were extremely happy with the tour agency housed in the lobby, which offers amazingly cheap but very good group tours to Monte Alban and other attractions as well as private tours with car and guide/driver for about $10 US an hour. Only improvement we can think of would be small refrigerators in rooms. Overall, a terrific experience and a real bargain.

Dining

We ate about 6 meals (over 7 days) at the La Olla restaurant--fabulous food and great service. Wonderfully sophisticated Oaxacan cuisine with complex and subtle flavors and a heat level that's ideal for non-Mexicans. Their set-price lunch is a 5-star dining experience for about $7.50 US per person!

Great price for a great location

Would recommend Tue, Jan 18, 2011
This is our third stay at this hotel and every time we have found it to be clean with friendly staff and just the right amount of services. The rooms have free wireless internet and a free brunch that is simple but good. Parking is easy if you drive a car - if you fly in and take a taxi, there are all sorts of things within walking distance and the main plaza is about a 20 min walk away. Have never had a problem at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.

Attractions

Don't miss the multiple museums within a short (10 min) walk of the hotel.

Perfect place to stey!

Would recommend Fri, Jan 29, 2010
We loved this place. At first we were looking for a more "local" place to stay, but chose this one as part of a package. We were blown away. The staff was helpful and very patient with my broken Spanish. We asked to be upgraded to a king size, which was done for us without hesitation or extra cost. The room (3rd floor) had a gorgeous view of the city and was far nicer than any of the hotels we visited in the States on this trip (even some 4-5 star ones). Marble showers, excellent cleaning services, plenty of space. And breakfast -- a great mix of local and American style food. Breakfast was fantastic -- best hotel breakfast hands down (scrambled eggs with chorizo sausage, tortillas, fresh fruit, pan dulce, juice, etc -- awesome!). About a ten minute walk to the center of town, markets, etc. Best deal for the money out there. Comfort, comfort, comfort!

Not everything as stated....

Would not recommend Tue, Jan 26, 2010
Overall, not bad, but really not in the center of the historical section. Still about a 20 minute walk and in 85 degree heat, not pleasant. Pool was so small. Staff barely spoke English. Concierge nice but hardly any English. One day room was not made up by 1:30 p.m.
