On first glance, the studio apartment seemed ideal. Street noise and of more concern, light from the hall into the apartment at night stole the delight of the place. When we asked to have them dimmed or turned off or even something to cover the windows, the proprietors told us they would do nothing. After all, we were only staying a night or two, so why bother making any effort on our behalf. The security procedure won't allow guests to have a key to the front door and it is locked after 8:30 p.m. Breakfast consisted of day old pastries, coffee of which Mexico seems to make the world's worst even though they produce it, and corn flakes.

Room tip: Avoid the studio #5 at the front.

My son had stayed at Las Mariposas when his middle school spent a week in Oaxaca a few years ago, so I knew it was safe and friendly. We had the chance to go to Oaxaca as a family recently, and ended up staying for about two weeks. We loved the rooms with a small kitchen [and big comfy beds!] and they all had great ventilation with good fans and windows.

The location works really well for easy walking access to lots of great places, and it is in a mellow, safe neighborhood.

I really appreciate the commitment to being socially responsible - they have solar panels, an extensive water collection and re-use system, and clearly support socially responsible vendors and tour guides. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Fabulous gardens and various patios!

Room tip: The rooms vary in character and style. If you are staying more than a couple days, I"d ask to check out what's available.

I've never seen a hotel like this! The team of Las Mariposas uses rainwater not only for the plants in the garden, but for washing the floor! They make "bricks" from plastic bottles, which will be used as building material for houses of poor families in Mexico! They collect milk packaging, which will be reused as insulation for the houses and support a lot of different projects! Incredible Teresa runs this hotel - she invested 35 !! years in it! There is so much work, energy and love in every detail. We stayed for 4 nights in a stidio apartment with a fully equipped kitchen - we felt very comfortable and homy. We enjoyed the beautiful garden and the peace and harmony of the place!

Las Mariposas has been my "home" for the last two weeks. The owner and staff are friendly, professional and helpful. As a woman traveling on my own, I have felt completely safe here, as well as have had the opportunity to chat with other guests and staff over the morning coffee and bread, which is included in the price. The hotel is immaculate, there is a clear attempt to conserve water and be environmentally conscious. The courtyards are beautiful and peaceful. I will miss the bird songs each morning and evening and all of the plants growing in the patios of the hotel. I highly recommend Las Mariposas!

Room tip: Ask for a room on the back patio if you like extra peace and quiet.
