We stayed on the first floor with the shared bathroom during the Geulaguetza. Though the town and hotels were busy, using the shower and facilities were not a problem. The room was comfortable and cleaned daily. The whole facility was cleaned daily and the staff was very nice. The courtyard was really the only place to get wi-fi but it...

We stayed at Posada Don Mario for four nights and it was a pleasant experience. We stayed in both rooms with an ensuite and a shared bathroom and both were decent options: nothing luxurious, but good hot water and comfortable bed. Wifi only works in common areas. Location of the hotel is excellent, very close to the center, you can...

This guesthouse was perfect for our brief stay in Oaxaca. We arrived before the designated check in time but we were allowed to our room early which was really handy. The room was really clean and cosy with nice local decorations and two fans. The location was perfect - walking distance from everywhere we wanted to go and the staff...

We stayed 5 days in Posada Don Mario. It is located 2 blocks away from the Santo Domingo temple and 7 minutes walk to the Zocalo. There are plenty of good restaurants around the corner and you can book good value tours with them like to Monte Alban, Hierve El Agua and Mitla. Staff is very attentive and helpful. Breakfast...

This is a really nice hotel with a great location, on a hill at the northwest edge of the Centro. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful & will deliver a cold beer to your room if you're too tired to walk downstairs. Breakfast is delicious, & they've invested a lot of time & energy in the décor. Would definitely stay...

I have been visiting Oaxaca city and staying at Posada Don Mario over the past ten years . I was amazed at the very many improvements I saw during this last visit . Almost all the rooms have a private bathroom and , to my relief ( arriving from The Netherlands at 3 am) there is a night time receptionist...

This is my second visit to Oaxaca and my second stay at Posada Don Mario. Situated in the quieter part of the Centro Historico, this is a quiet little oasis, still very close to a number of excellent restaurants and bars, and a pleasant 10 min walk along cobblestone streets to the Zocalo. The staff are friendly and helpful, the...

This small posada is located just at the edge of the historic center so everything is within reach by foot but it's just far enough away to be quiet as well as cozy and comfortable. Lots of personal touches everywhere, the staff is considerate and caring and breakfast is simple, well presented and delicious,,served in a quaint courtyard that hosts...

Posada Don Mario for me was a relaxing retreat at an affordable price. I found the staff wonderfully helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable. I had a room which had no cross ventilation and which had a ceiling that was the roof of the building so it did great quite hot. But I could have asked for another room and...

“Generally the rooms are quiet but if it rains, the noise on the corrugated aluminium roof on the top floor is very loud. Take a padlock to keep the window locked from the inside. Consider going somewhere else if you're tall.”
