Quinta Real Oaxaca in Oaxaca, Mexico
Situated in Southern Mexico, southeast of Mexico City, Quinta Real Oaxaca; exudes classic beauty and rich colonial history. Part of the LVX collection of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, this former convent of Santa Catalina was built in 1576 and has been meticulously restored to its early Spanish Baroque splendor. You'll travel back in time as you stroll its tiled corridors adorned with original frescoes. Opening onto flower-filled gardens and the picturesque streets of Oaxaca, the bedrooms and suites showcase the simple elegance and tranquil spirit of this ancient sanctuary.
Mingling with ancient Zapotec and Mixtec influences, Oaxaca's colonial heritage dates back 300 years. Begin your exploration of this resonant culture just four blocks away at the Zócalo, home to museums, galleries and Church of Santo Domingo cathedral. Here, discover the vibrant traditions that influenced artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and be sure to sample one of the classic moles that the region is famous for. For day tripping, the outskirts of town offer the ancient ruins of Monte Alban, and for a relaxing nightcap, the hotel's charming Novicias bar resides beneath romantic archways in a secluded poolside setting.

Reviews for Quinta Real Oaxaca
Wonderful "old school" hotel set in late 16th century ex convenant in historic part of town. Easy walking distance to some fantastic bars , restaurants , museums and contemporary art galleries. Rooms a little on smallish side but with comfortable beds, beautiful bed linens and antique art is very restful. Modern bathrooms complete with Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries and air conditioning make it extremely comfortable . Beautiful pool area is surrounded by lawn and gorgeous flowers complete with adequate terraced areas. Small gym sits off pool area. Breakfast is mix of Mexican and European dishes and of good quality. Ate out for lunch and dinner as so many fantastic restaurants nearby .

This hotel is an ex convent and has stone walls a mile high and a foot thick to prove it. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are full of beautiful toiletries. The food is great and l especially enjoyed a green chicken soup (who would have thought!) The pool is divine and the internal courtyards brimming with flowers. If you want to say here l suggest booking early as they seemed chock a block the 3 nights that l was there .

Oaxaca City is a wonderful site with fabulous inexpensive food we've found in few places across the globe. The Quinta Real is a beautiful destination of and within itself, housed in a historic monastery/prison with fabulous art and architecture, great food and a perfect location. My only suggestion would be that the staff be a bit more friendly and smile more.

Originally a convent but with many subsequent uses (prison, municipal offices). Beautiful properly right in the tourist/colonial-architecture part of town, convenient to churches, museums, botanical garden, restaurants. Suite bedrooms are lovely. However: many rooms are right on the street (where one restaurant has live music)â€”& the hotel itself hosts events like weddings. On weekends, most rooms may be noisy well into the night. We pre-paid for a larger room but did well only after a room change to an upper floor away from the function areas (which include the decomissioned church or chapel). Breakfast was mediocreâ€”better to go outâ€”and dinner menu is pedestrian in a city noted for great food. Overall, staff were responsive, concierge was helpful. Quibble: tap water cannot be used for tooth-brushing, & hotel was frugal with bottled water. That said, Quinta may be one of the best places to stay in town. The cleanliness, attentiveness, and convenience cannot be beat.

This place is centuries overdue for a refresh, old and tired, pealing paint, unkept pool area, tiny rooms and antiquated bathrooms not meant for two people. Internet access heralds back to the 90â€™s. Only two devices allowed per room while having to re registrar very day. Pay more and you can connect more. At 350 USD PER night itâ€™s way overpriced.
