We had a relaxing time at Hotel Corazon. The rooms are clean and spacious. There is a large bathroom with a good shower. The king bed was comfortable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The walk to the Zocolo is 10-15 minutes, about 1 mile. It’s safe and easy. The breakfasts are varied each morning, snd the self service bar is handy and comfortable. The only downside was intermittent noise from dogs barking next door. We appreciated help with tours and transportation to the airport. All in all, it’s a good choice, especially since the profits help local education and it is eco- friendly. A stay to feel good about!

Ten reasons to stay at Hotel con Corazón, a socially responsible hotel in Oaxaca: 
-Extremely clean, environmentally friendly with minimalistic furnishings 
-No TV or phones in rooms 
-No smoking in rooms -Gourmet breakfast included

-Excellent internet 

-Ample hot water for showers
-24/7 drinking water on all floors 
-Very quiet and safe at night

-Shady and layered property with ceiling fans in rooms

-On-site manager working with a congenial and accommodating team The following information is from Hotel con Corazón's handbook:

“Hotel con Corazón is investing its profits in education, so more kids can finish their school, build a brighter future and break the cycle of poverty. Sounds ambitious? Yes, it is, but together we can make a difference."

"We use low-flow faucets, shower heads and toilets. This year we are installing a system that filters and recycles water from the showers, wash basins and kitchen to reuse for the toilets and to water the plants." 

"Our soaps, shampoos and cleaning products are made from natural products and are 100% biodegradable."

"In the near future, solar heaters will be installed in order to use less gas and make use of the sunny climate in Oaxaca.” These are just a few of the reasons why we, two seniors in our 70’s, recently spent over two-weeks at Hotel con Corazón and can highly recommend our positive experience to you.

We happened to be in Oaxaca during the Guelaguetza so everything was very crowded. While it was fun to be part of the festivities it was also nice to return to the calm of Con Corazon. It was a 10-15 minute walk to the zocalo. The hotel is thoughtfully designed with their guests in mind--a place for everything. The king beds were huge, the room airy, great bathroom and shower, a little patio off our room with a hammock and delicious breakfast. We were a group of 7 and there was plenty of common space for us to relax and have a glass of wine. The staff are friendly, cheery, and helpful. And on top of all this the profits go to educating the children of Oaxaca.

I stayed at Hotel con Corazón a couple of weeks ago and had an incredible experience. While my mom and I were parking the car, we put our bags at reception (There were many bags). When we came back, the staff had already put our bags in the room and we were ready to check in. The breakfast is incredible, perfectly balanced and tasteful. The staff is really helpful and flexible to any of your request. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk to the main MAIN center of Oaxaca and there is a police station just 2 minutes walking. Meaning it was a safe and great location.The rooms are large and showers super spacey. The reception staff is very well informed so I definitely recommend asking them for any advice or tips. As a whole, Hotel con Corazón is THE perfect hotel for any occasion and I would recommend it to anyone.

Everything about Hotel con Corazon was great. The staff was kind and helpful. The rooms were well designed and clean. The area was only a short walk to Centro and felt very safe - even coming home late at night. Definitely stay here!

This place is special. From the moment we arrived, and Dulce checked us in (I wish I could thank all the staff personally, but - mea culpa - I only asked for Dulce's name) - we were entranced with this hotel. Coming back each day, it felt like home. It is wedged into an irregular space, but designed in a most inviting way over three floors. We had a large comfy King room and it was great for a 9 night stay. The Zocalo is about a ten minute walk away, and it's easy to get anywhere in town by foot. The neighborhood is convenient and quiet and away from the general hubbub. (Even the local barking dog quits (mostly) at bedtime!) One of the city's premier restaurants, Criollo, is a block away. It's fabulous. The chef, Enrique Olvera, has world-famous Pujol in Mexico City, and Cosme in NYC. One night we returned from a day of touring and it was pouring rain. The bar at the Hotel con Corazon has a small but delicious bar menu, everything freshly made. So our default "dinner" that night was perfect: guac, quesadillas, taquitos. Yum. On top of all the plusses, herewith from their website: "Hotel con Corazon is a social enterprise. Our mission is to help children in the region create a better future for themselves. Did you know that Oaxaca is one of the poorest states in Mexico, where many children are not receiving adequate education? We invest our profits in education programs that allow them to finish school and have better opportunities in life." This alone is reason to book.

Beautiful hotel, spacious and light design. Friendly, helpful people, making us feel very welcome. English spoken. Eye for detail. Nice fresh breakfast (fruit, yogurt, juice, eggs/tortilla- something different every morning!). Easy 15 minute walk to central square.

Clean, comfortable, affordable and the best part- all for a good cause! Definitely a place worth staying at. Convenient location and street parking. Loved this from the checkin to the checkout. Thank you!!

Hotel con Corazon is a gorgeous property just a ten minute walk from the very center of Oaxaca, though the location is a real advantage, as it feels much less touristy than some of the more heavily traveled blocks downtown. The space is stunning--bold colors, well-manicured gardens, and beautiful lofted ceilings abound. The grounds are immaculately kept. I felt like I was staying in a Luis Barragan-style abode. We loved lounging in the various communal spaces, sipping fresh-made cappuccinos or grabbing a beer from the honesty bar. Each morning breakfast was divine--a lovely mix of fresh fruits, yogurt, and a Mexican plato del dia that always hit the mark. More than anything, the staff was just fantastic. I'd really like to thank Dulce, who was unbelievably warm and helpful on a number of occasions and made our visit very special. She helped us arrange transportation and tours and even made special calls to a local doctor after a minor injury---truly a savior! We loved Hotel con Corazon and would return in a heartbeat--I hope you check it out when you are in Oaxaca.

We didn’t plan to stay so long in Oaxaca and Hotel Con Corazon. But Oaxaca city, the surrounding and the hotel made us come back and spend some more days. The staff is very kind and helpfull, the breakfast is a surprise every morning and the rooms are spotless clean. The temperature in Oaxaca drops down during the evening and night, so you don’t need AC.
