This small hotel was recommended by friends who have stayed here for five consecutive years. Had to check it out and now understand the attraction of Las Mariposas. Great and accommodating staff, comfortable bed, exceptionally clean and great location for museums, restaurants, etc. The owner celebrated her birthday in the gated courtyard and invited all the guests of the hotel...

I just came back from Oaxaca where the first 3 nights I stayed at in Airbnb place and for the last 2 nights I booked a room at Las Mariposas because it was nearest from the centre of the city. I loved the place so much and felt so well there that I ended up staying for 5 nights! I...

Stayed here a couple of years ago, and came across the name again as I research a return visit to Oaxaca for next year. We had a decent room in the back, which was quiet for the most part. I believe that would change if the hotel was busy and more people were using the pleasant courtyard that the rooms...

This is my fourth stay at Las Mariposas and that is my testament to what great place this is. I return because of the ambiance, the VERY clean rooms and the warmth of the owners and the staff. An important factor for me is how well the staff are treated, there is hardly a turnover in all the years I...

Let me start with the only negative: there is no breakfast to speak of. Simply coffe / tea and dry local bread or cornflakes. If you don't mind that (and we didn't), it's a nice little home away from home. The hotel is beautifull and lovely decorated and the staff is friendly and happy to help with advice or booking...

I stayed at Hotel Las Mariposas for 14 nights in September 2016. It was my 4th stay there, and has remained one of my favorite places, whether traveling with friends or solo .

After my visit in April and the controversy on the booking with booking.com that included breakfast I trusted the owner that it was all just a big mistake by booking.com.

Thank you for sharing your comments. I am very sorry you were disappointed by your second stay.

Hotel Las Mariposas is very nice little hotel. The rooms are very nice and clean. I liked the patio and the way the rooms are located. It was quite unique for me. They are trying to be Eco-friendly! Stuff is very friendly. I was only missing a better breakfast.
