The hotel is cute and impecable, walking distance from all the attractions but away from the noise and crowds. The breakfast was delicious, real local food. The welcome drink was a "mezcal" typical in Oaxaca it was good! A great stay.
On our photography trip to Oaxaca, I and my wife stayed at Hotel Boutique Casa Los Cantaros. We stayed there for 10 nights and found the premises clean and the hospitality was good. The Hotel is actually a large house that is now converted. The location is good and the Zocolo (downtown) is approximately a 1.5 mile walk. The property is on a main road and the traffic noise is there. I actually turned on the air-conditioning unit to create some white noise so that we could sleep till late. The front desk was very helpful but the onsite restaurant was average. On our last day they provided us with a complimentary breakfast.
We had a really good time. The staff is great and they were helpful every time. Even though we didn't spend to much time there, it was a perfect spot. The rooms were spotless and the service great. They received us with a shot of mezcal. Its outside the city center which was great, because its walking distance from the center but quite and tranquil. Lovely stay.
Great location. Helpful staff. Good and fast breakfast. Our room had a safety box. Room was Okay, nothing wrong with it and not especial. Wifi was iffy and they had two networks. I think the price was also very good for the Christmas time.
The decor has an authentic Mexican aesthetic with a modern flare. The staff were attentive and the amenities provided were top notch. The beds were comfortable and warm. The small restaurant provided delicious breakfast and offered some Oaxacan dishes that were unfamiliar but tasty. The Oaxacan coca was especially appreciated. The location convenient enough to explore Centro without worrying about parking a car. Easy to find, right off 190 and included parking for up to 4 cars. We'll stay there again.
Small boutique hotel, the owner was ALWAYS looking out for us and aware of our needs, going out of her way to provide a superb service. Couldn't recommend more for a quiet, comfortable, classy stay. Its located near enough the city's main sights, but far enough to not be overwhelmed by crowds.
This is a really nice hotel. Rooms are as nice and clean as a high-end hotel, but with the same charm you find in many hotels near the center. Staff are excellent, very friendly. Neighborhood is actually nicer than the area around the zocalo (main plaza), several great restaurants (like Casa de Oaxaca) just a few blocks to the northeast. And the good areas for tourists are still only 10-15 minute walk or a short $3 cab ride. Cabs zip by all the time, I never waited more than 2 minutes. Only downside for some visitors is that the in-house restaurant is not always open, but there are several other options nearby.
We stayed in this boutique hotel for a 6-day trip to Oaxaca. The hotel is situated in downtown Oaxaca on only a 5 minute walk to the city's old center and Santo Domingo, yet is very easy reachable from the airport. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet, offer a spacious bathroom and all the amenities you could need. The inner garden is very relaxing and well maintained so perfect for enjoying the good breakfast the hotel has to offer, or just sit down with a coffee or a beer. The staff was very friendly, and happy to oblige for every need. We were offered a glass of the local liquor "mezcal" on arrival, and were quickly after that shown to our room. The room was cleaned daily, and provided with fresh towels every day. All-in-all I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the state and city of Oaxaca.
During the visit we stayed at the hotel Boutique Casa Los Cantaros. It is a really nice quaint hotel that I would recommend. It is a little far from the center of town. But since we spent most of our time out of the town it did not matter. Day one we arrived and ate at Mesquite, it was a very nice place and the food was good. On day 2 we went to the Monte Alban ruins on top of the mountain (this is a must see). After the ruins we went to see a school of Jacobo y Maria, in San Martin Tilcajete. I also highly recommend this because they sell a lot of art work around this area and you will learn the difference between quality and cheap. On day 3 we went to Lachatao and did a 10k hike though the mountain passes. They have guides for this. We then went to the summit in Mirador, this was absolutely amazing. If you don't know the area you will need help finding it, but if you have the name you can get there. That was day 4. Day 5 we went to a school where they make hand made clothing, from hand made thread. Pretty cool again if you are into this kind of thing it is well worth the trip. It is Casa Vasquez in Teotitlan Del Valle. And finally the other place we ate that was worth noting was La Bisnaga. I would give this place 3 stars only because the service was so bad, but the food was very good. They had the best flan I ever had. Well hope this helps and feel free to ask me if you gave questions
The personal attention that Cristina and the staff offer at this hotel was unmatched. Cristina picked me up for the airport, and even during the busy Guelaguetza season, had time to cater to my every need. Plus, if you're studying Spanish at the terrific Instituto Cultural Oaxaca, this is the closest hotel to the school. It was literally a 30-second walk across the street. And the Centro--the main tourist part of town--begins right at the school. Technically, the hotel is located in the beautiful, nontouristy, and upscale Reforma neighborhood. So I thought the location was a perfect balance between the two neighborhoods, as I would not want to stay in the busy Centro. The building itself is beautiful, and they've just inaugurated two art installations by renowned Oaxacan artist Francisco Toledo. And air conditioning functioned perfectly. A previous poster reported that there was major construction on the avenue in front of the hotel, but that has ended and the avenue is now very nice. A top recommendation, especially for the price and location.
