Whenever I visit Oaxaca I always stay at the Posada Catarina. I usually give it four stars since there is no AC only a fan, but the maids work so hard that it deserves the extra star. I paid about $45 for a king size bed for my wife and myself. Centrally located, nice staff, highly recommend.

My wife and I go to Oaxaca at least once a year for the past ten years. We have always been happy with the Posada Catarina. Yes it is not a 5 star hotel, but the location and the staff is always friendly and take good care of us. The price of the rooms are quite reasonable. A king size... More

The service her was awful. My friend and I were both sick in bed (me with a headcold, my friend with a digestive problem), and when we called for a roll of toilet paper, the attendant flat out refused. He said the hotel has a one roll of paper per room per day policy, and apparently we had already gone... More

A good friend who travels to Oaxaca often told me about the Posada Catarina and a while later I drove down with two friends and we checked into another hotel very near the Zocalo which really was not wonderful.

In July of 2005, I had the pleasure of discovering Posada Catarina--what a great bargain!
