The staff is friendly. Very friendly. However do not stay in the rooms only the suites and jr suites. It was awful!!!!! You hear every phone ring as it is like living in the Lobby. You are living in the lobby Plus staff yelling , nicely , at each other is like being out doors. You hear doorbell all hours of the night. The rooms are next to a street with loud cars and noise so between telephone , plus you hear all conversation , everyone walks into hotel next to you so all talking is loud and like it is in your room. The hotel is beautiful. However you can not sleep. Plus only three small rooms and when neighbors door closes it is like a bomb You can hear everything I asked upon check in to change however for daniella it was too difficult. Since this writing four doorbells and loud people I should stay outdoors it is more quiet. Even with sleeping pills. Every time someone walks in the hotel or phone rings it is awful. Stay in suites or go somewhere else. The worst absolutely the worst rooms they are in the lobby ! Not a joke you sleep in the lobby Or should I say your don’t sleep but you are living in the lobby. Absolutely awful

What a find! A small, peaceful, quaint, beautiful hotel that left nothing to be desired. From the spacious modern meets Oaxaca rooms, impeccable service,( shout out to Naomi and Carla), to the location, I honestly don’t think you can find a better stay. The short walk to the main area is well worth it as you get to come home to a peaceful and quiet respite. Can’t recommend highly enough! Thank you for the wonderful stay.

Hotel El Callejon was very beautiful. Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay. Our kids had the 2 bedroom suite and it was perfect for young adults. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was very attentive and helpful. We are already planning a return trip to El Callejon. It's a very close walk to the downtown area, about 3 blocks. Taxi was $2 Highly recommend this hotel to people that like to be close to town but in a quit location.

I toured many hotels in Oaxaca when planning my wedding there and this one stood out as my favorite from the moment we walked in. At the heart of the hotel is a lush garden oasis where you feel as if you have been immediately transported from the city to a place of total peace and calm. Each of their 12 rooms feel completely private from one another and offer unique charm and beautiful design. We rented out the whole hotel for our wedding guests and every one of our friends left raving about their experience. The mornings are highlighted by a delicious breakfast including fresh squeezed juices, pastries, yogurt, and an array of made-to-order egg options. The front desk is happy to organize activities for you from a masseuse, to dinner reservations, to a tour of the countryside. They organized an english speaking guide for my husband and I to Matatlan (the mezcal capitol) and our driver went above and beyond to suggest fun activities and even made us a lunch reservation at one of his favorite restaurants which was absolutely delightful. The team always greeted us with a smile and was willing to do anything to make our stay comfortable. I cannot say enough nice things about this incredible hotel. Do yourself a favor and stay here! You will not regret it.

You are lucky to stay here if they are available. This hotel was stunning. The rooms were large, modern, beautiful, and perhaps most importantly, comfortable. The team helped make our vacation one of the best our family has ever had. They arranged for amazing insider access with mezcal producers, shamans, and local chefs.

The hotel itself is very beautiful- you can tell the owner has excellent taste and is highly detail-oriented. The room is filled with unique details like custom wood decor, stone shower floors, and nice art work (and a super comfortable bed). The outdoor terrace of the hotel is like a small jungle, filled with lush green and big beautiful palm trees. However, while the hotel gets the design and infrastructure right, they need to work on their staff which left the overall experience something to be desired. We stayed for three nights and ended up taking cold showers majority of the time because the hot water wasn’t working and the staff did not seem to care to fix it. That was super inconvenient and unexpected from a hotel like this. The man at reception completely did not care when I mentioned this. The hotel was having an issue with the keys so we had to go to reception and have someone let us in our room each time. Not the biggest deal, but after three days it started to get inconvenient. You would think they would prioritize to get this urgently fixed. Lastly, and probably the most important - the hotel balcony in our room (room#8) was very unstable and missing some screws. This is extremely hazardous, especially if children were playing near there. I told the head manager, and she thanked us for letting her know, but I have a feeling she wouldn’t do anything about it. The staff seemed to just hang out in their area drinking coffee and not proactively managing the hotel. If I was the owner, I would not have 2 star staff members representing my hotel. And I would fix the unstable balcony ASAP before it resulted in a huge liability. Overall, would I recommend this hotel? Yes- as it is truly beautiful and well-designed. I stay in a lot of boutique hotels and this is up there. But I would strongly urge the owner to check their staff and have a better focus on the customer experience.

El Callejon truly meets the definition of a high-end boutique hotel. The grounds are lovely, the staff are well trained and professional and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. We enjoyed being away from the noise of the Centro area, and it was an easy walk there if we wanted to go. In fact, most of the high-end restaurants are less than 1/2 way to the main central plaza so we were easily able to talk to all of them. The housekeeping staff also did a great job. The only reason for a 4 rather than a 5 is that our room upstairs in the front was rather dark as there was only one quite small window from the courtyard and even that one was partially blocked by some dead palm fronds. I would recommend to the management that it would not hurt the garden-like charm of the place to clean up and pull back some of the vegetation growth, especially when it covers room windows. And do to a flight cancellation we ended up back at the property staying in the junior suite (at the same rate, thank you El Calljon!) and it's small terrace allowed ample light into the room which made a big difference. Overall though, we have no reservation in recommending this property to travelers who enjoy what boutique hotels do best.

Truly a magical place with a superbly professional staff, excellent facilities, tasteful decor and comfortable rooms. I am not sure how else to describe our thoroughly pleasant experience other than to say it was beyond our expectations. I look forward to coming back to this little piece of paradise.

Open only one year, El Callejon’s translation is too humble. After a late 10 PM arrival and a safe pickup at the airport, walking thru those tall doors revealed a veritable wonderland. The staff were perfectly helpful, grateful and courteous. Many had early exposure to English and even had some understanding of our Spanglish. Grounds are amazing.....and closed to public. Entry by ringing doorbell onto property. Massive rooms decorated in a minimalist style. Lovely art throughout the grounds and rooms. Filling Mexican breakfast can last the whole day. Only tasty tapas at night, but full mezcal lineup. Easy walk to all the in-town sites. Professional guides available at reasonable half and full day rates to explore the area. Ask for Rudolfo, and he may show you his working farm nearby.

The hotel is located on a side street behind a large wall. I was not prepared for what was behind the doors. Breath taking. The attention to detail throughout the property was absolutely beautiful. The courtyard was so peaceful. I had a suite on a second level. I had no issues with noise or sleeping through the night. The staff was great. The location is several blocks from the Zocola and Santo Domingo church. Walking to these locations is a great way to get out and see the many wonderful restaurants and shops.
