Quinta Real Oaxaca
Nestled in a region rich in history and culture, Quinta Real Oaxaca mixes old world charm with modern day luxuries. Along with curved archways, frescoes and tiles have been lovingly restored, preserving the building’s colonial design, and offering you a glimpse into what it was like in 1576, when it was originally built as the Convento de Santa Catalina de Siena. Alongside this, you will find contemporary suites, captivating courtyards, a garden pool, and impeccable service from the concierge.
- Look out over fountains from one of the 91 colonial-inspired suites
- Take a refreshing dip in the garden pool and then order a cocktail
- Relax with a book on a beautiful courtyard patio
- Try traditional Oaxacan fare at one of four restaurants or bars
- Have the concierge arrange tours to the Zócalo (main square) or other local sites
- Watch the Guelaguetza folk dance beneath the vaulted ceilings of the former chapel
Oaxaca is a Unesco World Heritage Site, so there is plenty of history to explore just outside the doors of the Quinta Real Oaxaca. Your appreciation of regional culture will deepen further during the hotel’s Guelaguetza performances — every Friday night, colorfully costumed dancers, representing eight regions of Oaxaca, move to the music of a brass band.

Priority Early Check-in
Quinta Real Oaxaca’s past is celebrated in every one of the 91 well-appointed suites — each with its own unique design. Huge Spanish colonial windows look out over the gardens, courtyards, or the streets of Oaxaca. Ultra-soft linens and colorful throw pillows on your bed welcome you after a day of exploring. Sink into your deep tub, slip into your plush robe and slippers, and relax.
The concierge is on hand 24/7 to make reservations, book tours, or give insider tips. There is also a convenient childcare service, room service, and a boutique. If you are traveling for work, the hotel has a business center and expansive meeting rooms. Host guests in one of the historic chapel rooms or outdoors on one of the patios.
The four restaurants and bars at Quinta Real Oaxaca can accommodate your dining needs, and provide a wide variety of options, including local delicacies. Dine outside beside a trickling fountain or indoors surrounded by antiques. If you prefer a quiet night in, order room service, which is available 24 hours a day.
Las Bugambilias Bar – Grab a quick coffee or a quiet evening drink and sit under the arched walkways beside courtyards draped in the bar’s namesake bougainvillea.
Los Cántaros Area – Authentic historical touches and regional flavors make Los Cántaros a special place. Ask for a seat by the wall of artfully arranged cántaros — ceramic pitchers or oil jars — uncovered during its restoration. Sample a traditional Oaxacan dish or one of the menu’s international options. The breakfast buffet in the Cocina Antigua will fortify you for a day of exploring.
Los Naranjos Arcade – Enjoy lunch or dinner beside an aromatic garden whose orange trees give the restaurant its name. It is particularly romantic in the evening.
Las Novicias – Take a dip in the pool, and then order your favorite cocktail at Las Novicias. Candlelight adds romance to the serene atmosphere every evening, while musicians will serenade you on weekends.
Once you have taken in the majestic charm of Quinta Real Oaxaca and the surrounding city, sit on a patio and relax with some coffee, or stretch out on a poolside chaise lounge and have a drink. If you prefer to get your heart rate up, head to the fully-equipped gym. In addition to the Friday night folkloric show, there is live music Thursday to Saturday evenings in the bar.
If you want to get out and explore, there are plenty of attractions within a short, 15-minute walk. View contemporary art at MACO, just around the corner from the hotel; immerse yourself in regional history at the Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca; and see hundreds of plant species at the Jardín Etnobotánico de Oaxaca. Taste the city’s famous mezcal at a mezcalaría near the Zócalo; try Oaxacan coffee at the Mercado de Benito Juárez; and marvel at the Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Soledad, dedicated to the city’s patron saint.
