- Hotel AzucenasNov 30, 2012
A 14-year-old boutique hotel with 10 rooms, Hotel Azucenas enjoys a quiet location about a block away from the Soledad church, seven blocks from the zocalo and seven blocks from Santo Domingo church. It's an easy place for English speakers to stay: We were warmly greeted by two English speakers, including the owner, who said she was from the U.S. and Canada. A terrace bar provides soft drinks and beer on the honor system 24 hours a day, as well as free coffee, tea and purified water for guests – and a good view of the Soledad church. The courtyard surrounds a water fountain with turtles, and guests also can partake of the breakfast buffet for an additional 50 pesos, or about $4. The rooms have WiFi and appear cute and comfortable. The one I saw had a pretty tiled sink, a fan, bright yellow walls and pink and blue furniture. That sounds like it could be a bad combination, but it actually looked cheerful and fun (see my photos).

The first thing you notice about Hotel Azucenas upon entering is that turtles live in the fountain in the courtyard, bucking the Oaxacan trend of pet birds. You may join the turtles in calling this place home after a stay here. With 10 rooms and the friendly, American-Canadian owner on site, the hotel feels more like a bed and breakfast. The 14-year-old inn, just a short walk from the impressive Basilica de la Soledad, has cozy, comfortable rooms. Breakfast is available on the attractive, flower-adorned terrace for an additional fee, and complimentary coffee and tea are available all day. The hotel also has a 24-hour "honor bar" with soft drinks and beer, as well as wifi throughout the property. The relatively quiet neighborhood is also a short walk from the zócalo and Santo Domingo church.
