My husband and I stayed here for a few days over the "day of the dead weekend" . Location was excellent - walking distance from all Main tourist spots. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room had a private outside area just for us which was nice to use for exercise in the mornings. Overall it's a nice hotel especially... More

I stayed here for a couple of weeks and would definitely stay there again. All of the staff was great. The one waiter in the restaurant was excellent, the restaurant food was very good and they have a decent variety. Room service is available. I wanted to change rooms and they were very nice about it. It's reasonably quiet, however... More

Nice hotel for the price. We arrived earlier than the check in time and with no problem they gave us the room. Workers are nice. It is like five blocks from the Tourist corridor. Really nice city to visit.

My daughter, son-in-law, and I spent 6 glorious days in Oaxaca, staying at the Hotel Cantera Real. The rooms are spacious, and everything works beautoifully except the wifi which is sporadic. There's a good restaurant on-site where we had breakfast and dinner several times. Unfortunately, the people at the front desk speak very little English so it made it difficult... More

We could walk all over the city from this hotel, even to one of the main cemeteries for "Dia de Muertes" the lower lobby had been transformed into a memorial altar for the former owner. It was decorated with streamers, flowers, elaborate design of colored rice on the floor, a very touching tribute for the Day of the Dead. We... More

This hotel has a really cool old classic Mexican structure that you will love. Location is excellent, just 3 blocks away from Santo Domingo square. Clean rooms and friendly staff. The only downside are the towels and beds were a little too hard for my taste. I would stay here again.

We stayed here one night.

My friend and I got an amazing deal on this modern, clean & friendly place via a travel Website, which definitely influenced how we felt about it. If we had paid the typical price, I would have been mildly disappointed, as Hotel Cantera doesn't have the charm, gardens & views of similarly priced hotels. For the rate we did pay,... More

This place is really nice, fairly modern and very clean. The staff is helpful and cheerful. My friend and I have enjoyed coffee and breakfast in their cute little restaurant. However, the Wi-Fi sucks. I don't understand why they would shoot themselves in the foot like that.
