Hotel Aitana is a restored XVIII Century building arranged around an interior patio with Oaxacan columns and fountains made from the green stone typical of the region.

Its charm, personality and cosmopolitan ambiance delight those people who avoid staying in larger, more standardized and impersonal hotels. From the hotel's terrace, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city, which is nestled in a valley and surrounded by the Sierra Madre mountains.

Each of its 23 rooms, all gracefully decorated in warm colors, has a bathtub, hair dryer, cable color TV, telephone and safety deposit box service.

The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the magnificent Santo Domingo Convent on the charming walking street, Macedonio Aitana. It both Oaxacans and international travelers. Hotel AITANA offers warm, individual attention, high quality, and an unforgettable stay in this colonial city, which teams with colorful tourist attractions and a rich cultural life throughout the year.Located in the Historic Center only 4 blocks from Santo Domingo Church and 5 blocks from Principal Square (Zocalo)

Friendly, reasonable,clean, well located

This hotel is on a major street, traffic is heavy, but being a former Spanish villa, the rooms face inwards so noise is minimal. Beds a bit hard, but rooms are clean and spacious. Location excellent. Staff very friendly. Good breakfast.

Fair price.

The hotel is more than ok. Its location that some reviewers write about was not an issue for us, a five minute stroll thru beautiful old town oaxaca past stunning architecture being hardly an issue. The food was below average, but then most hotel food in any country is expected to be below good local restraunt standard. For us a it was the interim step between first arriving in a new city and staying at the most expensive hotels and having the confidence and knowledge of finding a short term apartment. Fair value for money compared to other more known , expensive hotels in the old town.

Good value; needs attention to small details

We were very happy with our location and with the warmth and friendliness of the staff overall. However, we missed a certain level of attention to details. A towel or bathmat would be picked up for cleaning, and not replaced. Kleenex emptied and not replaced. Being windowless, our room was dark to start with, and when two bulbs went out it was very very dim and took two days to repair. These issues were all very small in themselves...yet attention to these kinds of details seems easy and would lift the level of a visit to this hotel immeasurably.

Charming hotel close to the heart of tow

We were on a driving trip through Mexico and chose this hotel because it was easy to get to. The downside was that the street was quite busy and some of the street noise found itself into our room. The WiFi was great and we had a coffee maker in the room, but they ran out of coffee packets. The service was gracious and the parking lot across the street was convenient though getting in and out of it presented a challenge as it is an old building with a narrow gate. Most of the inconveniences of the hotel were due to their need to preserve the old architecture, thus retaining it's charm.

Hotel Aitana is a great option

Room was comfortable, clean, with irratic hot water. Located on the edge of historical district within easy walk to majority of tourist destinations, restaurants, markets, and festivities. Friendly, helpful staff that could arrange anything including some off hrs. meals that we ate there. Breakfast was excellent and some other meals were quite good and very reasonably priced. A great choice overall and when we return to Oaxaca will probably stay there again.

Character & fantastic staff

We had planned on going to Oaxaca for my birthday. We had an AWFUL experience with our flight (Aeromexico). Our original flight was canceled so we were not going to make it to Hotel Aitana on the night we originally planned. Instead of penalizing, the hotel was very friendly, helpful, and let me apply the 1-night stay we had for the night we finally did arrive. Because of the day delay, we wanted to try and get a flight out to Huatulco instead of the bus trip we originally planned. It was past 6pm but Hotel Aitana still helped call on our behalf to arrange for a last minute flight out the next morning to the coast. Just in time for my birthday. So not only is the staff friendly and extremely helpful, the hotel itself is pleasant, clean, and has a lot of wonderful character. The room was comfortable and I have absolutely no complaints! I am so grateful for their hospitality and service! I would highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Good experience overall

The staff was very friendly & accomodating. The kitchen served great food. The only negatives were, the price kept increasing the longer we stayed. Also, we had the manager arrange for a taxi to the bus station for a trip to the coast. Our taxi was 2 hours late, we missed the early bus and ended up arriving late to the coast.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

We had trouble using our traveler's checks in Oaxaca and Porto Escondido. The guide book said to take traveler's checks, but due to recent scams they weren't welcome.
