Hotel CasAntica

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It is close to all downtown main attractions, restaurants and bars. The hotel's restaurant is great and convenient for breakfast. The best rooms are in the main building.

This is our 1st time staying here. Everything you are expecting from a hotel you'll find it here, neatness, friendly staff, great location. 1 block away from the Zocalo n from the touristic corridor. Definitely we'll stay here again.

Nice Hotel, good location, poor service, and the room 508 very noisy.

We loved that the hotel was within walking distance to many places. The staff was very helpful and attentive. The hotel and our room were so clean and inviting the minute we entered. It was nice having a place to eat close by when we didn't feel like venturing out right away. The hotel offered several areas that were nice to just relax in wether it be in the patio area, pool side or just outside your room. We would highly suggest staying here if you are coming to Oaxaca and want to be located to the city center. Warning: Be prepared to say "No Gracias" often when out and about. Many vendors coming up to you wanting to sell their wares. Try not to make eye contact if you are not interested. Also, don't sit at tables at the edge of cafes or restaurants because vendors will come by there too.

The hotel's location is prime: in the middle of the Historic District and two blocks from the Zocolo (plaza). The staff were all pleasant and a few actually friendly. The room and facility in general were spotlessly clean. Lack of staff training is probably the biggest failing. They all have willing attitudes, they just haven't been well instructed. You may or may not be served in the courtyard. Room amenities (soap, clean glasses, tissues) are hit and miss. Policy concerning things like complimentary breakfast and transportation change depending on who you talk to. I was unable to get a receipt at check-out because I booked through a reservation service. Food quality is at best mediocre and the restaurant is empty at lunch and dinner. Over all the hotel is adequate, reasonably priced and conveniently located. Just lower your expectations a little.

My 12 year old and I stayed here for 3 nights over the Easter holidays. The hotel was filled with Mexican families vactioning over the holiday weekend which made the experience even better. The pool was a huge bonus. Our room had windows, air conditioning and it was very clean. All of the attractions were really close by. We truly enjoyed our stay.

An overall great hotel. In the middle of it all and just a few blocks from everything. The front desk was very helpful and provided us with helpful information as far as tours, etc. A very pretty hotel with scenic views Spacious and exposed to the outside. (No narrow enclosed hallways) Restaurant was decent. My only Complaint were the mattresses. They were extremely hard for my taste.

Need to focus more on keeping the place a bit cleaner. The restaurant's food is not good at all. The great thing is that the location is excellent.

Casantica has a wonderful, convenient location in the heart of Oaxaca. The hotel has a rich history and is full of character, just like the city it is in. Very few hotels in the area have a pool, so it is worth noting that Casantica has a cute pool in the sunny central courtyard. The staff were always really helpful and accommodating. The adjoining restaurant served good traditional Oaxacan food at a reasonable price. The standard room was pretty small, but it was incredibly clean and had everything that we really needed, including lots of hot water.

We and our teenage son stayed here for a few days while passing back through Oaxaca, couldn't have asked for a better hotel. Great location right downtown yet super quiet rooms. We had a room right off the main courtyard and it was amazingly quiet. Lots of quiet balconies, corners and tables to enjoy a moment or do homework (not that our son especially enjoyed that aspect but we sure did). Staff was extremely helpful, room super clean and well done/decorated. Will definitely stay here the next time we are in town.

Stayed at the Hotel Casantica for a week. Very friendly staff. Clean room. Good room for the cost.

My husband, 9 year-old daughter, and I really enjoyed our visit at the Hotel Casantica. We found the staff to be super friendly and very helpful arranging everything from our transportation to the airport to the many guided tours that we booked with their help. The rooms were clean and simple. We ate in the restaurant only for breakfast, but it was very good. I loved sipping a cappuccino in the courtyard by the fountain after a day of sightseeing. Best of all, it is so close to the city center! We will be back!!!!
