    Lo que me gusta del lugar es que esta al centro del zocalo. Lo malo es que cuando hay protesta a veces los taxia no pueden entragar a dejar a uno. Pero eso son a veces por la mayor parte esta todo libre

    This hotel exceeded my expectations. Location is absolutely ideal for visiting Oaxaca - Zocalo is steps away - music, restaurants, shopping galore. Very easy to book tours - you must - very inexpensive and you see so much. Walk to galleries, museums, churches, ice cream, juice bars, sidewalk vendors - delightful, stimulating day. Gala hotel is 2 doors up from an OXXO which has 12 kinds of coffee - HOT, flavorful - less than $1 USD. A nice panaderia about 3 blocks away. For the price I paid, I was surprised that it had some amenities you'd expect in expensive USA hotels: comfortable sitting areas within the hotel, interesting art pieces throughout, very helpful front desk staff: arranged for an early morning cab, made a phone call to a tour company for me; rooms have bottles of water, telephone, a washcloth (!) (a rarity in many hotels), shampoo, soap, 4 towels, bath mat. I booked a single and got 3 twin beds in my room! OK by me. Doesn't have A/C, but a fan (for me and the weather I had, was fine). Has a TV of course, but I never turned it on. You can also book tours at the hotel - I had already signed up for another, price at hotel was about $2.50 USD more - all the tours go to the same places. I would definitely stay here again.
