Quinta Real Oaxaca £££££

  • Mexico
  • Boutique

Once a 16th Century convent, the Quinta Real has been carefully converted into a luxury hotel. All rooms are air-conditioned and have shuttered windows opening onto Oaxaca’s historic streets. Some of the suites have their own balconies overlooking quiet Spanish Baroque courtyards. While a luxury hotel, it also retains an authentic colonial style with tiled corridors and restored patios, one of which was the original convent laundry and still has a large, carved stone basin in the centre.
