      Historical Traveler Reviews Las Golondrinas Oaxaca

      A great place to stay


      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


      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!


      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


      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.


      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


      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


      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!


      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


      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


      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

      Tour of East Oaxaca

      A travel blog entry by canadiansmiley on Dec 30, 2012

      Started by taking the local bus to the Tlachuya village for 12M. Sundays are the crazy market days in this village. Amazingly the market is so big that you literally get lost in it. But worth the visit. After that I head out to the Fabrica del Mezcal where they make the Oaxacan famous drink. The process of making this interesting drink is amazing to watch. I head out to the Teotilan village ...

      Leah's mom, Leone, aka “Mamu” to her grandchildren, timed her visit to Oaxaca so that she could watch Micah and Zola while Leah and I were away. It was very impressive how she jumped in with both feet. She ...

      I got home a few hours ago, and was thrilled to take a hot shower and put on clean clothes. Although the hike terrified me, I am proud of myself for facing my fears. I could have turned back, but I didn’t. I kept going, and I did it. I made it up that mountain and back down. Further, I was able to broaden my horizons by staying with a small indigenous community, and to learn first-hand how they live.

      So perhaps the ...

      ... most amazingly moose like vanilla and strawberry ice cream. After that delight, we headed back to the hostel for a much needed siesta. We woke up around 6.15pm and made some good old english chicken, potatoes, carrots, beans and the nearest I could find to gravy, chicken stock. It's so nice to be able to cook a meal we know now and then. After dinner, we made a few more plans for the trip and then settled in for the night, watching an episode or two ...
