Hotel Casa de Siete Balcones, or House of Seven Balconies Hotel, has only seven rooms – and yes, each one has a balcony. (The Bella Vista room has the biggest, a wraparound balcony.) All the rooms also have double-paned windows, a nice touch given the hotel's proximity to the zocalo, or town square. While I wasn't allowed to take photos of the rooms, the one I saw was romantic, with a big bed, high ceiling, a candle and towels twisted into the shape of swans. The room also included a large television, a table with two chairs, a hair dryer, bottled water and a coffee maker. Rates include parking and a continental breakfast. While the hotel has WiFi in its terraces and other common areas, the thick walls keep it from working in some rooms, so – if you need it – check that you can access WiFi in your room in advance.

It's quite an accomplishment for a hotel to be on one of a city's busiest corners and still feel like a tranquil sanctuary. But Casa de Siete Balcones, located just two blocks from Oaxaca's main square, measures up. Each of the hotel's seven rooms has a balcony facing one of two major streets, but the rooms are blessedly quiet, thanks to double-paned windows, as is the inn's insulated outdoor atrium, where breakfast is served to guests. Rooms have nice, spacious showers, coffee makers, TVs and hair dryers. The woman working the front desk was friendly, but spoke just a little English. Wifi is free for guests, but it doesn't work well in all the rooms. The location is a boon for people planning to explore Oaxaca on foot, as the hotel is bordered by pedestrian-only Macedonio Alcala, which runs from the zocalo to Santo Domingo church.
