- Hotel Casa AbuNov 26, 2012
Oaxaca isn't a sleek, modern city -- it embraces its centuries-old roots -- so the sleek, modern Casa Abu stands out. Decked out in chrome and red accents, this hotel is a good option if you'd like a break from cobblestones and old churches at the end of the day. With 52 rooms, it's a larger hotel than most in Oaxaca's center, but -- unlike most others -- it also has an elevator. The minimalist-style rooms are comfortable and clean, with flat-screen TVs, and the handful of rooms with windows are especially inviting, as is the slick atrium in all its cushioned glory. It's hard to find a better location in Oaxaca; Abu is right in the middle of everything, close to both the zocalo and Santo Domingo church.

Hip and modern, the 2-year-old Casa Abu – short for "abuelo" or grandparent – seems ironically named. Its gray and white décor, complete with red and lime green accents, would fit in better with an urban loft than a typical family home. It's centrally located, near the Santo Domingo church, and its rooms are clean and simple, with free bottled water, flat-screen TVs with cable, desks and WiFi throughout the hotel. Coffee or tea makers are missing from the rooms, but coffee is available in the lobby. Guests also access the one-computer business center, a meeting room and a restaurant that serves an American breakfast, with a few traditional dishes (like grasshopper mole) thrown in. Only four of the 52 rooms have windows – 206, 207, 208 and 209 – so book one of those if you want a window. Hair dryers and irons are available upon request.Recommended for:
