    Environment

    Hotel Casa Vértiz Oaxaca is proud of its excellent location in the heart of the Historic Center. Being just a few steps away from the church and ex-convent of Santo Domingo de Guzmán and the main pedestrian street, Calle Macedonia Alcalá, makes us one of the most comfortable and convenient choices of accommodation in Oaxaca. In this culturally rich and varied city, you will be able to see our beautiful colonial architecture and get to know the traditional identities of the state´s many indigenous cultures. Within easy walking distance of the hotel, you will find a huge number of impressive museums, art galleries, libraries, markets, artisanal crafts and restaurants.
