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.

So this building was originally a monastery making it absolutely gorgeous! It is perfectly located, right next to the botanical gardens and iglesia, with amazing restaurants and stores in all directions. We stayed for a week and loved it. 24 hr room service came through a few times and the housekeeping service was on point (twice a day). I will say that I didn't give it 5 stars because while we had a nice room with two windows overlooking a courtyard, there were a few issues. (some of which cannot be avoided) For example, the bathrooms are small and the less nice rooms are small with less window light (like I said, it was once a monastery). But for a couple of days it is really worth it (for a week I couldn't have done it). You shouldn't be in your room that much anyway bc everything is walking distance outside your door. Also I didn't care for the hotel restaurant food, but that did not affect my stay in any way bc we were always walking next door to some of the best restaurants. My husband LOVED the bed, he loved it and would not stop talking about it. However do expect the traditional firmer mattresses of Mexico. Lastly, my husband pointed out that there are no women working at the front desk area and that they aren't very friendly when giving you advice or help... we found one front desk operator to be extremely helpful and sweet named Farrid. (thanks Farrid for all of your help)!! he helped us with our reservation so we could stay in our room that we loved so so so much!!! The hotel pool is really nice and at night I liked to hang out at the bar next to the pool for a night cap. It was really peaceful and beautiful. If you see pics of the hotel, it is more beautiful in person!!!!! BTW - just in general, Oaxaca is a wonderful town and a great vacation spot. 4 nights is a good amount of time there. The people of Oaxaca are really bad at giving directions or they don't care if you get to where you are going... but it was really funny bc they just kind of point in the direction of something and you kind of have to navigate it yourself - which is fine these days, but just expect to have a good cellular plan so you can use your gps apps! oh wifi in hotel is very very very slow..... but free :)

Stayed here for 3 nights. Small but comfortable room in a quite beautiful building. Bed comfy but shower bit dated. Pool and gym are great and in lovely setting although you do have to walk through an events hall to get in/out. Breakfast not included but tried one morning and found it badly run and disappointing.
Absolutely gorgeous monestry converted into a hotel. Wherever you set you eyes, there is a picture to be taken. Excellent customer service. Thank you Jorge for allowing to check in a bit earlier. Great breakfast in beautiful surroundings. Probably the best hotel bed I have ever slept in and luxurious bed sheets. Air/con just right. High end toiletries. Small gym which we used everyday. Gorgeous ,slightly heated swimming pool; we enjoy it everyday as well. In the centre of Oaxaca, next to one of the most beautiful churches in Mexico. Short walk to restaurants, bars, the Zocalo, galleries etc... We can't wait to go back. Don't hesitate, you have to enjoy this marvellous hotel.

The hotel and hotel grounds are beautiful, spacious and classy. The hotel is located one block from the church of Santo Domingo, and within walking distance of restaurants, shops, bars, banks and market. Perfect place to stay if you want to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle, while still staying in a private and exclusive location. The pool area is great, the rooms are very comfortable, and get pretty dark at night, which it makes perfect for a good night of sleep. The hotel workers do get going early in the morning, and you can hear them moving around and talking, but nothing that could prevent your rest. Costumer service was exceptional and the entire stand was super friendly.
