Casa Guivá is a charming colonial house with a cozy indoor patio and nice rooftop terraces. There are 9 rooms in total, so its literally like living in an old mexican house. Our room was at the top, on it’s own in one of the rooftops. We didn’t get any noise from the rest of the house or guests, but we did get the noise from the street... it is in a city center, so that was to be expected.
Just thought you’d like to know that all rooms have private bathrooms now, recently added for the comfort of guests.
As for the review that mentions the credit card issue, yeah, you can only pay in cash. If you want to use your credit card, they will call another of their branches and give your info over the phone in order to be charged on their terminal. Although they seemed nice and trustworthy, we preferred not to risk it bc we are digital nomads and would rather not have issues with our credit cards bc it will be a hassle to get a new one in a foreign country.
The hotel is in a great location, at walking distance from anything you would want to do in the city center (tours, airbnb experiences, Meeting points, community activities, etc.).
The personnel were very nice and welcoming. Always with a smile and ready to tend to any need of their guests.
All in all a very nice stay in a very convenient location. We really enjoyed our visit to Oaxaca on day of the dead weekend!
