Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Azul

Abasolo 313, Oaxaca, Oaxaca, 68000, Mexico

Hotel Azul was the first entry in the post-2010 boom in boutique hotels in Oaxaca, converted from a run-down house in the city center to a hidden gem of a boutique hotel. Although it is situated on a busy downtown street, once you step through the front door, you'll enter into a world of peace, high-quality service, and chic, well-designed rooms. For guests who want a little extra luxury, Hotel Azul offers suites designed and decorated by five of Oaxaca’s most illustrious contemporary artists. After a day exploring the city, the classy rooftop cocktail bar offers a range of refreshing Oaxacan cocktails to whet your appetite before dinner.
