I loved the airy, floral atmosphere of this B&B! The staff was very helpful, getting us tour buses and arranging for our laundry to be done, which was very helpful as Oaxaca wasn't the first stop on our trip. Hope to stay here again someday!

We stayed in the Luna room and it was charming and cosy. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, including arranging a booking for a tour of Monte Alban. We loved that it was several blocks away from all the hustle and bustle. Very grateful to the professional and welcoming team !

A nice and spacious room with a personal decor. You could easily stay there four people. The room had anything we needed. Location is good. Not super central, but the distance to the Zocalo is a ten minutes walk. Breakfast is fantastic and served in the lovely open courtyard. Staff were super sweet and very helpful and all speak English...

Enjoyed the art and authenticity of El Diablo y la Sandia. Lovely terrace where we enjoyed a variety of breakfasts each morning with other guests. Helpful staff, good recommendations for a taxi driver with whom we spent the day: Jorge. Convenient location. Perhaps a touch too expensive for the simplicity of the rooms.

My husband and I, along with our toddler visited Oaxaca in January for a week stay. We enjoyed El Diablo y La Sandia Libre and the city very much. We chose the Luna room which was perfect for us as it was upstairs from the rest of the rooms and next to the terrace. The room was spacious and they...

This small B&B is really cute with some unique aspects (delicious home made Kombucha and jams, kitchen open for everyone's use) but there is very little privacy. We could hear every movement and conversation in the room next door: when they got out of bed to use the bathroom, snoring, coughing, etc. The rooms are also centered around the courtyard...

We stayed at Diablo for 2 nights. It's a nicely decorated in a more authentic vibe, nice small roofterrace and good breakfast each morning. It's in a good location in the centre, walking distance from where all things happen and we got some valuable tips on tours, dinner and drinks. Bit too expensive though for the quality of the rooms...

We stayed here for 5 nights from Sunday to Friday. The location is fantastic. It's only a 10 minute walk to Santo Domingo Church and no more than a 20 minute walk to the Zocalo. Second, the breakfast is fantastic; every day, they serve a typical Mexican dish (hot) in addition to the fresh fruit, bread and excellent coffee (sourced...

Very-well located, you can easily reach the centre by walk. Lovely and clean, charming decoration and details . Has everything you need, including a nice atmosphere (and a bar!). Friendly and helpful staff.

We brought ten women to this magical place and rented the whole building it was very magical clean colourful full of kindness and beauty. We didn't see many staff about and it would have been great to meet maria but we were only there three days ... We had a mini bus to run us in and out of town...
