After spending the Day of the Dead holidays in the center of town, it was a delight to transfer to Casa Colonial. The courtyard was lush and tranquil. The salon/library was a delightful meeting place. There was even enough light to practice my cross-stitch while taking an afternoon off from touring. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast and took advantage of... More

Cass Colonial is a bit off the major tourist streets. This is an advantage if you don't mind walking or using other transportation. I never met the owner, but the manager, Armado, speaks excellent English and is very helpful in making suggestions or arrranging tours. Out room was stuffy, as there was nth cross ventilation. The was the only negative... More

We recently stayed at Casa Colonial for the Day of the Dead celebration and couldn’t have had a more enjoyable, informative and delicious adventure. Jane, the owner, and Amado, the manger, were very attentive and helpful and, because of their relationships with local artisans and knowledge of the area, we were able to experience the real local culture. Jane took... More

We took a group of 10 friends to Oaxaca and stayed at Casa Colonial for 12 days. Amado, general manager, coordinated the entire tour for us, taking in to account what our group wanted to see and do. He is a consummate professional and very friendly and informative. He arranged all the transportation, tour guides and cooking class for us.... More

Casa Colonial is such a tranquil space on the edge of the central historic district in Oaxaca. I first happened upon them six years ago when I attended their fascinating 12 day "Dia de los Muertos" tour. My recent return was even more relaxing in this authentic villa from (I believe) the 1870's. My room sported vintage floor tiles from... More

For my second year, I have stayed in the inviting surrounds of the Casa Colonial in Oaxaca Mexico. I thought I had reviewed this gem before, but on searching my feed didn't find it there. Perhaps i was suppressing my desire to keep this place my secret. It is so special and unique, and provides not only a welcome respite... More

Jane, our host and her incredible staff made our stay the most enjoyable I had in long long time. The rooms are wonderful and comfortable. Breakfasts they prepare for us are delicious. I will definitely return there.

Casa Colonial was originally a house built in the old style with verandas around a verdant central garden. The ambiance is restful, gracious, and very "Oaxaca". The staff could not be nicer and greatly enhance the joy of staying at the Casa. There is Oaxacan folk art everywhere in the gardens and rooms. Rooms are charming, but not fancy and... More

Cannot say enough wonderful things about the casa. Not the fanciest place in the world but definitely soulful and colorful. Plus a library and gardens. Old world and gracious best describe this hotel. Staff is charming beyond. About a 15 minute walk to the zocalo. Close to grocery, coffeeshop and banks. I have stayed here four or five times and...
