These suites are big! You get a lot for your money, huge living area, three generous bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a nearly fully equipped kitchen (more of that later). But, and it's a decent sized but... don't plan on sleeping much at weekends. The least of the problems is a bar or nightclub that produces a low thumping rumble that after a couple of decent shots of mezcal, one could probably ignore easily enough. But much much closer is an event venue, which I presume is an open air garden, as is very commonly found in Mexico. This must be more or less adjacent, and on the night we were unfortunate enough to experience it, they had a band playing into the very wee small hours. And this band sure made a racket. I could cope with the vocalist. The drums were only jarring. But the brass section. Oh my. Trumpets are just about the most penetrative sound at 3am, no amount of local firewater could drive those stabbing riffs from my brain. Fair ruined the night and left us all grumpy the next day when we should have been enjoying the sightseeing around and about. This is a real shame, as the installations are great, off-street parking available for one car on a quiet street. It's a short walk to the centre, restaurants not far away and a convenience store at most 5 minutes away. It's also very easy to get to the main throughfare to go east-west. Wifi works fine, no major worries with anything really. Some further tips: 1) I arrived with a booking that included breakfasts, but no mention was made of this at check-in. When I enquired, I was told that they didn't serve breakfast in high-season (???? a bit strange, normally it's in low-season when breakfast can be a bit sketchy, i.e not worth their while). Still, they honoured our booking and brought a good breakfast to our room every day - although children are not included, they only bring breakfasts for adults (why???). 2) I got robbed blind at the first Pemex gas station that you come to after joining the main road to Mitla from the hotel. I'm used to Mexican gas station litres being a touch undervolume, but on this occasion, it was brutal. I estimate here that the litre was coming out at around 600ml at most. In fact there was a guy there raising hell, pointing to a half full jerry can and refusing to pay. I imagine his 10 litre jerry can was proving the lie. I moved off just as the police arrived. I suggest you give this gas station a wide berth and try others on down the highway. 3) The kitchen is not fully stocked - our booking was for three adults and two children, but for many items there were just a set of four or three pieces available - mugs, plates etc. Strange omission, it can't be too tricky to match numbers of items to guests. 4) The boiler is a bit funky - you have to light it upon arrival (we weren't warned) and after that I wouldn't put it at full pelt as it only has a small water deposit, after which the temperature dips alarmingly. Then you have to wait 10 minutes for it to warm again, ready to finish, or the next person to have their shower. For a large group wanting to get out bright and early in the morning, you should bear this in mind. Overall, a very pleasant experience that would have been four or five star if we hadn't lost an entire night to the trumpets from hell.
The place is not your typical hotel with small rooms. It is a set of six apartments, very spacious. The one we stayed at had 3 rooms, it was perfect for our three teen agers and us. Wifi worked super all over the room, no extra charge. If you go, do not stay in the room right by the front door, it was noisy with people coming in and out. The service was very good, predictable, everything was impeccable. The kitchen was super, the apartment had a living room and dining room. If you go in a weekend, Friday night was noisy, a party close to the place was just a bit too much - bring earplugs. This happens all around town, no matter where you stay. The rest of the days were quiet. If you like your pillow fluffy, request it at the beginning. And careful with the hot water in the shower, it is very very hot - although the pressure is so good! feels like a spa. Around the corner, there is a "fonda" (small cafeteria), don't miss "memelas" from there, they were simply yum. We bought some and brought them back home for breakfast. This place is close to the downtown area, we walked there every night, it was nice because although the first streets are a bit iffy, the rest is a gorgeous colonial walk. Oaxaca is one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico, don't miss it!
We stayed here two night and while we liked the room and the location it was very noisy at night. Guests arriving late made a lot of noise and it seemed to carry very well into the bedroom, plus there was a band playing somewhere nearby. Perhaps a room in the back would be better.
This suite hotel is not very old & well located in a quiet residential neighborhood just 2 blocks north or Ninos Heroes & within walking distance of the historic center. The hotel has six spacious 3 bdrm suites, 2 suites per floor on 3 floors, each with 2 baths & full kitchen. I stayed there for 2 months loved it. I felt safe & the staff was friendly & attentive.
This place is perfect. Rooms are clean and the service is friendly. The top floor suites are a bit much for two (3 rooms and 5 beds) but for $72/night, we went for it. The location is great, near all the happening parts of town but located on a quiet dead end street. It's very safe and comfortable here. We will definitely be staying here next time. Bring ear plugs for the weekend, there is a club across the river that thumps on fri/sat, past that, all good, no bad.
We had a wonderful stay in one the 3 bedroom suites. The place is spacious and new, and looks like the photos in the listing. it's on a dead end residential street so its a lot quieter than in the city center. The walk to Santo Domingo is short and pleasant. The staff is extremely helpful and always available for questions, and made our explorationin Oaxaca a lot easier. One of reasons we chose to stay here is because we wanted to take advantage of Oaxaca's wonderful markets and cook some of our own meals and this place includes a beautiful kitchen. While it's equipped with a new stove, fridge, and microwave, I wished there were more cooking utensils such as knives and chopping boards to make it a fully functional kitchen. this was such a small glitch though it didn't bother us at all given how satisfied we were with everything else. It fit our needs and was a good value. I highly recommend it.
We recently spent three night at Suites Bello Xochimilco, and were more than happy with our choice. The hotel is located about 10 minutes walking distance to Santo Dominico and central Oaxaca on a quiet dead end street. Our ground floor suite of about 1000 square feet had two bedrooms, one bath, living room with cable tv, outside table and chairs, dining room and a kitchen. Clean, spacious and comfortable all at a very reasonable price of less than $100 per night for three people. The staff was very helpful. Great for short or longer term stays.
Unas suites impecables en limpieza, decoración, atención y mantenimiento. La semana que dispusimos pasar en las fiestas de Oaxaca gracias a éste hotel resultaron encantadoras. Desde nuestra llegada ya tenían asignada nuestra suite la 102 una amplia suite de tres recámaras cocineta, patio, sala comedor y lo Mejor de Todo ....el esmero con que fuimos atendidas. La señorita de recepción siempre atenta y cordial, Manuela la preciosidad del aseo en las habitaciones incomparable....hasta me la quise traer a mi casa...ja ja ja ...lindas te orientaban en todo lo requerido, se ofrecian a servirte en todo tiempo...realmente lo que como coach de calidad en el servicio siempre sostengo.....la actitud del personal borra cualquiera de las imperfecciones.....FELICIDADES lo recomiendo ampliamente.
Estuve ahí por 4 meses y al principio todo era excelente, un lugar limpio, agradable y cerca del centro de Oaxaca a donde podías ir caminando. Sin embargo, después el servicio desmejoro mucho, no hacían el aseo correctamente, no proveían suficiente papel de baño. Hay que mencionar además que es bastante costoso, en Oaxaca es posible conseguir lugares mucho más económicos que ofrecen servicios similares. No obstante el personal de recepción y seguridad está presto siempre a colaborar y también es fácil comunicarse con el administrador y así los problemas suelen resolverse con mayor prontitud.
Viví con unos amigos unos meses para ser exactos y el servicio decreció de una manera muy mal, ya que no hacían la limpieza adecuada falta de papel de baño y nos querían cobrar la limpieza del piso porque tenía grasa. En contra parte muy amplio aire acondicionado, estacionamiento; uno puede hacer fiesta en la suite y todo en calma solo en locaciones te dicen q le bajes al volumen en general buen lugar. Pdt. Tengan cuidado con romper vasos o dañar sus muebles y tengan en cuenta de revisar a detalle las sillas al recibirlas, ya que te cobraran si dañas las cosas y a precios muy superiores y cuidado con la estufa porque si se daña el esmalte que tiene quieren cobrarte una nueva. Suerte! Eso si los precios por mes muy altos.
