Camino Real Hotel, 5 Stars, 4 Diamond Dec 08, 2009
The Camino Real Hotel is located in the Historic Center, just 4 blocks from the main Zocalo. The Camino Real Hotel has been retro fitted into the 1576 Santa Catalina Convent. Several original frescoes have been restored. Many of the original rooms of the convent still exist today. The original tile floors have been saved were possible. The grand chapel is now the special event room. A functioning colonial hydraulic system is found in the north courtyard. This is a washing well "Los Lavaderos" that features twelve stone bowls. The water level is kept at a steady level by this ingenious hydraulic system. You can still set a section of the city aqueduct just a few block to the north. You can visit the quarters of the Bishop de Albuquerque, builder of this convent. This room still has the original baroque style furniture. This building remained a convent until 1862 when it was seized by the state and made available for public uses that included a government office building, the municipal jail of Oaxaca, a school, a movie theater. This structure has been a hotel since 1975. The Camino Real has 91 rooms on two floors. There are four patios, "Los Naranjos", "Los Lavaderos", "Las Rosas" and "Bugambilias". and one swimming pool with a patio bar, "Novicias". Most rooms retain the stucco wall and high ceilings with exposed wood beams. All rooms have queen or double beds, air conditioning and ceiling fans, telephones, large Mexican tile bathrooms. There is internet access in each of the rooms and wireless internet service in most of the public areas. The Camino Real Hotel has a heated indoor pool, an on-site restaurant "El Refectorio", 2 bars "Las Novicias" and "Las Bugambilias", 24/7 room service, safe deposit boxes, a gift shop, a newstand, an on-call doctor service, laundry and dry cleaning services. Currently the rooms at he Camino Real Hotel run from about $230.00 to $400.00. The Camino Real Hotel may be the best priced 5 star, 4 diamond facility anywhere. I have only stayed here twice because I actual prefer the hotel Marques del Valle on the main Zocalo because of the location.
