What has been your lodging experience in Oaxaca? Were you satisfied with your accommodations? Do you have recommendations for other travelers? If you booked via the Internet, was what was promised all that it was promoted to be? Any recommendations for where to stay? Cost? High end? Moderate? Budget? Small places? Conference hotels? Do you have any advice for “shopping for lodging on the Internet” that could avoid a particularly unsatisfying experience once you show up?
All ideas and comments welcome.
Because I live in Teotitlan del Valle, which is 17 miles outside the city, we rarely come into Oaxaca and stay overnight. But, if we do, we try to book at Las Bugambilias or Casa de los Sabores, which are beautiful, small, immaculate, bed and breakfast sites. The cost is around $80USD per night (based on current exchange rates). The elegant, historic Camino Real hotel on 5 de Mayo, is gorgeous, would accommodate conferences, and is very costly (over $250 USD per night).
