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
This hotel is excellent, it may seem pricy but it is worth it a 100%. The people are very helpful, nice and knowledgeable. Maids came twice a day to check on the room, once in the morning to and once in the afternoon to leave it ready for the night. Every day we found some chocolate treats for us on the beds. Water bottles and coffee was checked frequently so that it was never in shortage. The restaurant has a breakfast buffet everyday with different dishes to sample but always keeping the favorites (Tamales, chilaquiles, and eggs any style or omelets. Buffet also had an assortment of fresh fruits and juices some of which I have never tried any where else, a green juice and a guayaba juice. To top this off fresh cut Jamon Serrano and Smoked Salmon where included accompanied by an assortment of cheeses (Oaxaca, Fresco, Manchego, etc.) and grilled vegetables. For lunch and dinner the menu includes a varied selection of dishes from traditional moles to seafood and pork. The Hotel is located right in the center of downtown, 5 minutes walking distance from the Zocalo where joyful music can be heard live everyday from diverse music genres while enjoyed with a cold beer or a great Mezcal. Right next to the Zocalo id the Mercado Juarez where you can smell the different spices of Oaxaca being sold to the public. Fresh mole in paste or powder can be found everywhere regular or sweet (almendrado). Hundreds of Mezcales can be sampled for free until you find the one right for you. whether your palate is for a traditional Mezcal or a wild one there is no better place to sample them than here. The hotel is two minutes walking distance from the Ex-Convento de Santo Domingo. A 400 year old master piece with a rich history of the fusion of Spanich and Zapoteca traditions. All around the hotel there are many restaurants from the traditional Fondita to the Hipster restaurant bars to the five star restaurants all with a rich taste of the flavors of Oaxaca. This hotel has everything inside, restaurant, bar, pool, travel agency for your tours. The best aspect of this hotel are the people that work in it. They are warm and friendly, helpful with a sense to serve, and most important true to their roots.
Last minute change of plan brought us here for a long weekend. We booked an inside suite, which was very peaceful. The rooms have huge tall ceilings, massive beds (almost too big) and very efficient AC. Lovely hotel grounds, with a great pool - perfect for cooling off after a few hours wandering the city. The staff were super friendly and everyone spoke great English. We cannot comment on the food at the hotel as we always ate out, but if we came back we'd definitely stay here again. Brilliant coffee shop 5 mins away was Cafe Brujula. A great bar just outside the entrance was Tobaziche. We got the shared van from the airport, which though a little longer was great value. A solo taxi back was much quicker. Great little airport. Thoroughly recommend Interjet to/from MEX - never had so much leg room down the back.

Well located in Centro Historico of Oaxaca City within walking distance from major attractions & restaurants, this hotel converted from an old convent has spacious rooms with full facilities. Rooms are comfortable with quality aminities, buffet breakfast, nice pool & ancient auditorium still holding musical performances. Restaurant & housekeeping staff were freindly , helpful & efficient but front office desk & doormen are acting like they're royal palace staff with stiff arrogance. Best hotel to stay in Oaxaca !

We stayed for an enjoyable 4 nights at the Quinta Real Oaxaca. The hotel is situated in an ideal location with most of Oaxaca's attractions within walking distance. The room itself had plenty of charm as one would expect from an over 400 year old former convent. The room itself was fine, although a little dark since there was only 1 small window. Our room overlooked the pool which was nice, except for the night when there was a huge poolside party that went on until well past 2am. I had to sleep with earplugs, which was very annoying.

This former convent is a spacious beautiful setting for a very comfortable hotel. We were fortunate to be there on a Friday so we could see the dancers from the 8 regions of Oaxaca- a must see if you are there. Room was comfortable and food very good. Excellent service at all times, especially from Vincente, who ensured my gluten free needs were met.
