    Historical Traveler Reviews Las Golondrinas Oaxaca

    A great place to stay

    from

    We stayed at Las Golondrinas on two seperate occasions for a total of two weeks and it was really great with one proviso.The room at the front looking out to Tinoccio y Palacio is very comfortable and spacious withits' own little outdoor sitting place BUT too noisy if you are a light sleeper.The staff are uniformly helpful and gracious and the Owner is a really nice man.The cost is still reasonable but Oaxaca is getting expensive and it is necessary to look carefully at prices.A wonderful new restaurant is Temple abour three blocks from the hitel towards Santa Domingo.The food is excellent there and at El Che,similar directions. We flew to Huatulco on Aerotoucan and loved being there at the Casa del Mar overlooking Bahia de Tangolunda.The Front Desk Manager is Richard who speaks good English and has some great staff for a really fine Hotel in a superb location.There are two super suites with their own Hot tubs overlooking the Ocean and the other hotels from large terraces.

    Great for the price

    from

    WE stayed for a week Jan20-30 The rooms are plain but very clean. Lots of European and American travelers to socialize with at breakfast. I do agree with the reviewer describing the rock hard beds and pillows. The staff is very helpful. Breakfast was good . It could really use some lounge type chairs for the garden area. A note we had a good room #17 but guest were complaing of strret noise and staff noise in the rooms by the front desk. Those room are lettered rooms aa,bb ect.. You may want to ask where your room will be . All in all it is a small quaint place and very reasonable and clean. Pat Bker

    Great little place in town!

    from

    Las Golondrinas was a wonderful place to stay in town, and inexpensive (under 500 pesos/50 dollars more or less). It is a short walk to the zocalo, but in a quieter section of the centro (as opposed to being right on the zocalo). Rooms were super clean and comfy. They had arched doorways to the bedroom. No TVs in rooms, but they have a communal living room with one. Hotel has lovely gardens with hammocks, and a restaurant. One downside is that there is no parking for the hotel. If you drive there, you have to park on the street (around the corner) or in a secured parking lot a few blocks away (about 10 pesos an hour...not sure of the daily rate). We just parked on the street and all was fine. We would defintely stay there again.

    Agree with most everything, but

    from

    I agree completely about the ambience, gardens and breakfast (AND price) as written by many, but am really surprised no one has mentioned the ROCK-HARD beds! We loved the setting, but both my partner and I couldn't sleep well (in two different rooms.) Anyway, worth checking the beds out in your room and see for yourself. We moved to Casa de Mis Recurdos after this stay and though we paid a little more, it was the difference between night and day in the bed dept. and their atmostphere is also lovely (landscaping not as lush and extensive but much more attention to furnishings and general ambience in rooms)and the breakfast outstanding.

    A wonderful find.

    from

    Our room was big, bed comfortable, it was quiet although in a busy neighborhood, convenient to the Zocalo, the museum, the new ethno-botanical garden. There are three inside courtyards decorated with gardens and fountains, one of which is used as the breakfast cafe, which serves excellent food at a low price. The staff is friendly and efficient. When we asked for an extra pillow and blanket it was there in less than five minutes. Laundry was given them at 11 a.m. and returned by 3 p.m. The rooms were clean and attractive. We got a wake-up right on time, and, when we left, the cab was waiting for us. I don't think you could do much better at that price -- or at any price really. The hotel only has about 20 rooms and tends to be full so book in advance.

    A hidden paradise

    from

    one of the nicest places we've stayed. All the staff was extremely helpful, room was large and always clean and plenty of hot water.

    Breakfast area was beautiful and delicious, Best of all you could walk everywhere conveniently even walking back at night fromt he zocolo was safe. We can't wait to return to Oaxaca and we will definitely return to Las Golondrinas

    Charming and inviting

    from

    This hotel was one of the best things about our stay in Oaxaca. The staff was very friendly and helpful and flower filled patios were so inviting. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Oaxaca!

    Would definitely stay here again!

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel Las Golondrinas for 7 nights in July 2003. I would definitely stay here again. Each room is unique and the three garden areas/courtyards are wonderful for sitting and relaxing. We had a few problems, but the hotel handled them well. Our first room was located on a noisy corner and had no hot water; they were able to move us to another room. They also tried to charge us for a breakfast we did not have, so check your bill. We had early morning flights out on two different mornings and both times, they had a taxi waiting for us at the appointed time. The hotel was full the entire time so I would recommend making reservations early. Since you can reserve a particular room, stay away from the rooms by the street and room C-14.

    A wonderful hotel with heart and soul

    from

    I stayed here ten years ago and still remember it fondly. Wonderful courtyard with birds, wonderful breakfast, wonderful owner and wonderful ambience. A safe and quiet walk of less than ten minutes from the Zocalo. It isn't for people who want to stay in Hiltons, but for moderate budget travel you can't beat it.

    Las golondrinas

    from

    One of the best little hotels in Oaxaca, three courtyards filled with gardenias, grapefruit trees and bougainvilea). Only blocks from the Zocolo. They serve a great (cheap!) breakfast in the morning with your choice of granola and fresh fruit, huevos rancheros, or mole tamales. Very helpful staff and a great laundry service

    ... seen being baked the day before. The bread was for dipping. It was like dessert before the meal. Delicious. That was followed by the main course – mole negro, chicken, rice, and tortillas. One of Gaby’s sisters had made the mole from scratch for the first time. She did well. I cleaned my plate … and then Micah’s … and then Zola’s. Micah and Zola had been excused from the table quickly and were off playing ...

    ... struck up a conversation with Leah, and ended up asking if we’d like to see how she made her tortillas (photo). What a great introduction to Oaxaca. The other people we’ve met have been warm and welcoming. I’ve been impressed at Leah’s Spanish fluency. She’s made friends with taxi drivers and restaurant owners alike. I love how good she is with people. After a stroll through the central square of San Felipe del Agua and a ...

    Grocery shopping on Saturday night in Oaxaca! That was a trip! Loved it.
    We are getting a lot better at the "lingo" here, and can't wait to learn more.
