This hotel is located a little bit outside the historic centre in a nice neighbourhood. The distance to the centre is easy to walk and it feels safe, even in the evening. There are enough restarants and small shops around. The hotel is very clean, has a nice terras and the people are very frindly. Good breakfast, continental or Meixcan is included. It’s in a restaurant one block from the hotel, so the hotel stays quiet in the morning.
Great cost for location and comfort

My husband and I loved Hotel Cazomalli. Our room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is filled with plant life and lovely Mexican decorations. We did not use the upstairs patio at all but it is a lovely view. We really enjoyed the neighborhood. It is quiet at night! We got to know the coffee shop just around the corner which serves great coffee and breakfast. The walk to the zocalo takes 15 minutes. Yvon, the daughter who runs the hotel, is really nice. My only complaint was the weak shower which can be remedied with a new shower head. But that's minor. We had lots of hot water and clean towels every day. In truth, They were very attentive. Thank you Yvon and Elizabet!
A 2019 update on Cazomalli
Reviewed 6 january, 2019
We noticed that the only reviews are quite old and not very complimentary and thought we better update. This is a great little hotel in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood but only 20 minutes walk from the Zocalo. The hosts, Francisco and Marina, are very friendly and helpful and immediately make you so welcome that you feel part of the family. Ignore the comments about keys, this has all been corrected. There is no food here, but you are surrounded by authentic eateries of all types in this district, including several brilliant breakfast options. Exceptionally clean, well presented, with its main attraction being the welcome you receive. Great base if you really want to find the real Oaxaca.
Take negative reviews of this hotel seriously.

I took negative reviews of this hotel with a pinch of salt, thinking them not likely to be an accurate reflection what to expect; I was wrong. We stayed for 5 nights in Oct 2015. The hotel is in a lovely quiet barrio, a reasonable distance from the centre and the public areas of the hotel are charming, well kept and attractive. The hotel is run by a well-meaning woman. All questions to staff are routed through her. Unfortunately she lacks good customer care skills and is rather set in her ways. The hotel feels a bit like a boarding school and there is a large list of rules on the wall in each room. eg no food allowed in the room. The rules are probably not uncommon, but rarely displayed so prominently in a decent hotels. Here's a list of problems we encountered. I booked an executive suite including breakfast via bookings.com, on arrival I was told the hotel had no executive suites and did not provide breakfast and that the error was due an incorrect listing on the website. When you go out, all keys have to be left at reception and you have to ring a bell for someone to come and open the front door when you return. The front door is locked at all times and reception isn't staffed, so it can feel like an inconvenience when you are come in, particularly late at night. The sound of the bell ringing frequently is also noisy for rooms located near to reception. We were often asked what time we would be returning, which as we were on holiday, we didn't always know. Our room was small and located next to the hotel cleaning area. We were were woken early each morning by staff going about their work. When we asked for a quieter room the only on was close to the door bell. The room safe had been left in the locked position when we arrived, so we had to wait for it to be unlocked. There was no instructions to how to use it, so we followed the same system we'd used for all other safes and promptly locked ourselves out of it. When we explained, we were shown written instructions (which we were not allowed to take to the safe) and asked them to unlock the safe for us. We asked repeatedly but it became clear that they had no intention of unlocking it a second time. They assured us that the room was safe and we gave up asking after a few days. Finally, we left belongings out neatly on dressing and bedside tables, and shoes and clothes we wished to wear later out. These were tidied away into drawers and cupboards, along with our other stuff. Toothbrushes left neatly beside the sink, were moved to directly above the toilet and waste bin. Whilst we had a few comedy moments trying to second guess they would have put things or known what belong either of us, the joke wore off after a while. I've never known room cleaners to go through drawers you are using or re-pack and stow your belongings if they are left tidily and do not prevent them carrying out their work. In the end we got into the habit of leaving nothing out in the room and keeping as much as we could in our bags. This could be a charming hotel, but unfortunately we sometimes quite uncomfortable staying here.
Beautiful Boutique Hotel in Oaxaca
Reviewed 6 november, 2015
Hotel Cazomalli is a charming family owned boutique hotel in the barrrio de Jaletlaco neighborhood of Oaxaca Mexico. The owner (Marina) was extremely friendly and helpful with great advise on where to go and what to experience while in Oaxaca. Beautifully decorated common area and relaxing roof top patio were perfect for visiting with friends. Room was well furnished and the whole place was spotlessly clean. They take great pride in their little oasis in the barrio. It was comforting to have safe drinking water readily available at all times as we drank a lot. Yes you have to turn the key in when you leave and retrieve it upon returning but this was never a hassle and they are not the only ones to do this. Felt very safe and secure and the neighborhood abounds with culture.
