Hotel Posada del Centro — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Hotel • $$/$$$ • (A)
Housed in a restored colonial mansion, the welcoming Posada del Centro is a good low-budget option for a hotel centrally located just three blocks west of the Zócalo, especially the six rooms with shared bath. Nicer midrange rooms with private baths are also available. For long-term stays, be sure to negotiate a cut in price. Its two interior patios are a relaxing place to plan the days activities, meet up with other like-minded travelers, or piddle away the day with a good book. The staff is helpful and friendly.
