- Las GolondrinasNov 29, 2012
The contrast between the rooms and the grounds at Las Golondrinas is intriguing. On the one hand, the rooms are sparse, spacious but devoid of much furniture. On the other hand, the grounds are overgrown with plants, and it feels like you could be lost in a labyrinth as you wander through the sprawling 30-room hotel, trees snagging your clothes and shading the pathways. It's not a bad sensation, but it's an odd dichotomy. That said, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly. Most of the rooms are sheltered from the busy street running in front of the hotel, which is a good thing. Most of Oaxaca's central district is a short walk away, and a rigorous workout is available at the nearby stairway up El Fortin hill.

Las Golindrinas feels a bit like a jungle, with ferns and flowers everywhere and paths winding through numerous courtyards. The rooms are simple, but surprisingly spacious, with beds, night stands, desks, toilets, sinks and showers, as well as WiFi in all the rooms. Guests can buy breakfast, bottled water and sodas and laundry services, and can borrow guidebooks from the front desk. The hotel puts guests only a few blocks – across the busy Tinico y Palacios -- from Santo Domingo and the main downtown attractions, and down the hill from the Guelaguetza auditorium, making it ideal for concert- and festival-goers, but potentially noisy for guests seeking a quiet stay. That said, many of the rooms are set far back from the street and are shielded from traffic noise. Those concerned about loud music may want to check Guelaguetza events before booking.
