We just spent 10 days at this delightful hotel while taking a cooking course and enjoying the pageantry of the Dia de Muertos celebrations. We could not have been more pleased. The building is charming with rooms opening onto terraces and with a beautiful decor in accordance with the name (House of the Monks). The rooms are spacious and comfortable... More

A group of us rented rooms for a culinary/arts tour. Most of us had never been to Oaxaca...the hotel is within two blocks of Santo Domingo so it is centrally located to shopping and dining. The rooms are cheery and the air conditioning works well. My friend and I had a room in the second floor with plenty of closet... More

Charming, small, friendly, super clean hotel in a great location--just far enough from the noise of the Zocalo but close to attractions, great restaurants, shops. Amazingly helpful owner and staff. Kudos to Alejandro, the front desk manager and only English speaking staff. Alejandro went above and beyond to help us, including finding a private guide. In response to other reviews:... More

I received great service at Casa de Los Frailes. The staff was friendly and helpful. My room was very clean with a good shower comfortable bed and air conditioning. I loved the location! It was an easy walk to everything I was interested in seeing. The continental breakfast was minimal but adequate. Laundry service was excellent, fast and inexpensive.

Spent four days at the hotel in Oaxaca and was really happy with our choice.. The location was perfect; just two blocks from the main square yet far enough to enjoy the quiet.. The staff could not be more friendly or accommodating. Highly recommend

Compared to other hotels in this price range, the rooms are a cut above. There is air conditioning, a flat screen TV, and a strong shower. My room was quiet and very comfortable.

“Floors off the first floor will be quieter. The street is already quiet so getting a room with a window facing the street was really nice for the day time”

“Ask for an interior room. Some rooms are facing the street which isn't as noisy as some. May be restricted by your room and bed size choice.”
