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
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.

The hotel was excelent in every way, very relaxing, breakfast buffet was amazing, clean room, nice comfortable beds and excelent service. It is amazing that you can stay in a historic building such as in this hotel, the building is extremely beautiful. The rooms are rustic but you have to have on mind that you are staying in an old monastery, whoever mentioned in the reviews that the rooms are too basic, he/she does not appreciate history and autenticity. I personally felt really lucky for having the opportunity of staying in a building with such historic importance. Miriam

Peaceful embrace in this little bustle of a city. Every night I came home walking through the doors was both remarkably restful and architecturally enriching. The former monastery was designed for contemplation and the hotel has honoured it's past by designing small artful public spaces and tradition courtyard rooms. Clean respectful service and a front desk going to great lengths to help us ship a large fragile work of art. Best moment after a colossal brunch, reading poolside amongst the lush garden watching the small singing birds dash for crumbs. Thank you Quinta Real Oaxaca and your efficient lovely staff. I would have stayed longer...
