Fodor's Review

Your host, poet Lety Ricárdez, lets you know immediately that this mansion in the center of town, furnished with a memorable collection of objets d'art, is "your home." Pass through a wrought-iron gate to reach two of the suites, then climb a twisting stone staircase to find the other two. Ask for the Bella Epoca suite, where everything seems to come in threes: three rooms with three sets of French doors that lead to three balconies—there are even three crystal chandeliers.

The bath has a deep whirlpool tub and towels tied with silk ribbon. The rooftop dining room and café has views of all the city's landmarks.

Luxury in a Beautiful City

Oaxaca, for the last 15 years, has been one of my favorite get-aways. I've stayed at podunk posadas, and the Camino Real. Casa Cid De Leon is a very nice alternative to the Camino Real. I've stayed in two of their suites over a 9 day period, and the Bella Epoca suite is lovely, if a bit eclectically decorated. Staff is friendly and very attentive. Fresh flowers every day in the suites, and an excellent breakfast on the roof/balcony. Cafe, frutas,

pan, huevos, chiliquiles...all delicious.
