Las Azucenas Review

This intimate hotel occupies a wonderfully restored old home near the Basilica de la Soledad. You can spot that church, and at least half a dozen others, from the plant-filled terrace. The most private room is secluded on the second floor. The others are just as cozy, but one has a skylight rather than a window. Ask for a tiny tele (TV) at the reception desk if you can't bear to miss the evening news.

    Oaxacan jewel

    I've stayed at a number of hotels in Oaxaca, always looking for a reasonable price, comfort and quiet. This place, by far, has all of that. I'll start by saying that I gave the room a 4 because it has minimal amenities that might matter to some,like no TV or phone, but for its price range it should be a 5 because those things don't matter to us.
    It does have comfort, charm, quiet and friendly and helpful staff. I was told that we would probably end up spending a good deal of time on the 2nd floor terrace and thought that quite unlikely, but a few minutes there convinced me that we were wrong. It offers a good view of the city from its uphill location, comfortable seating and umbrellaed tables to read, snack or meet others, and a small kitchen for all to use and for the staff to prepare the simple fruit, granola, cheese, rolls, coffee and tea they put out in the morning. It's a great place to plan your itinerary for the day and to relax before going out for the night.
    The staff is uniformly pleasant, and it is impeccably clean. A laptop, free WIFI and discount phone service to the US are available from the office.
    Frankly, I don't feel that I've done justice to Las Azucenas with this review. We plan to stay here whenever we return to Oaxaca and don't feel that it is necessary to look for a nicer place. We've found it.

    Oaxaca is a most interesting city & area.
    I arrived 3 days before my apartment was available due to a change of plans. I had planned on taking the bus down the coast to Puerto Escondido via Acapulco Read more
