Why Ricardo Cuevas chose Jalatlaco

Jalatlaco is one of those places that continue to keep its charm almost secretly. Despite the apparent closeness to the historic center of Oaxaca City 10 minutes walk, anyone can wander the cobblestone streets of this small colony and immediately feel the calm that surrounds him. The secret of this calm is that most of its buildings are inhabited by villagers, only a few have been conditioned for guest house, hotel or restaurant. Inside the Barrio de Jalatlaco you can visit the Temple of San Matías Jalatlaco.

What makes this apartment unique

La casa Del Barrio is in a great location, everything is easily reached, historic downtown, markets, bus terminal, you can walk to many places in a few minutes, or take a cab at $3 the single trip. La casa Del Barrio is a quiet place and peaceful, yours to enjoy. No other guest just for you, it’s a great place to enjoy Oaxaca and have all the conveniences like Wi-Fi Internet, Cable TV, full kitchen and everything to make your stay wonderful.

Perfect getaway in the heart of old Oaxaca

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying on the top floor and spending time dreaming on the balcony after walking all over the city. Casa del Barrio is in a perfect location near quaint restaurants, bakeries, shops, etc. It was so easy to get around on foot. Appreciated the king bed and lots of storage space, and Ricardo was very accommodating.

Nice place to stay, good area, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We were three people and so the space fit us perfectly. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom which afforded us the privacy we needed.

The space is cozy and clean. The location was excellent. Restaurants, parks, laundry, coffee shops all in very short walking distance. Although the private patio space was a little dark, we were able to put our lounge chairs out on the front patio, while we read or relaxed.

Ricardo was a good host and attended immediately to whatever we needed. He even drove me to buy a cane when my back went out.

I would stay at Casa del Barrio again, when I return to Oaxaca

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay in this apartment. The location is great, we walked everywhere from here. The town Zocalo is a 15 minute easy walk. Actually everything is an easy walk from here. The town is colonial and lovely. To many restaurants to count. The food is fantastic! Friendly people everywhere. So much to see and do. Ruben, the owner is on site and very helpful. Answered any questions we had and made sure all our needs were met. Even had fresh fruit waiting for our arrival! Very secure property although we never felt unsafe anywhere in this town. Would definitely stay here again.

The property is in a good location, on a quiet street and well protected.

  • 4 of 5

The first floor is fine. 3 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, kitchen, and diningroom/living room. There is a patio with a hammock that is fairly dark and not great. Ricardo is nice, not overly helpful but organized and efficient. I would stay with him again.

Hope to come back soon!!! We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect little spot so close to the central district. We were within walking distance to everything. Originally I didn't realize how close everything was but this little place put us close enough that we had no concerns. We felt safe and comfortably fit my family and 2 friends. Ricardo was a perfect landlord. He responded quickly to any issues that came up (my son locked us out of the room). His condo was well maintained and clean. The price was perfect for his little place. The only recommendation is that the little water heater be replaced soon as it could run out of hot water fairly quickly but to me that was only minor and appreciated every moment of our stay.

Casa del Barrio

  • 4 of 5

Everything was good except the kitchen needs more light and a dishwasher machine, bathrooms need something like a good glass door to avoid water to come out the showers. the rest of the place is good, Ricardo Cuevas is a very nice person and very knowledgeable about Oaxaca city. we loved the patio area too.
