Basic Accommodations in the Heart of Centro
If you just need a place to sleep, shower and take a break from walking around beautiful Oaxaca, Hotel Mayis fits the bill. Rooms are a walk up to second floor facing the street. Noise wasn't a problem for us. Rooms are clean and basic. As a Westerner used to a lot of comfort, bed was a bit hard for me but for 3 nights it was fine. Three of us stayed in a 2 queen room and had plenty of space. This hotel is very small and doesn't have any other amenities but coffee, food, etc. are all close by. Front desk staff was very friendly.

Poor 2.0
Terrible service, small rooms, right in the center
The staff at the Hotel Mayis seem to not understand what hospitality is. This may be one of the worst experiences I have ever had in terms of customer service. Let me explain. I had booked the Mayis for 6 nights with a few weeks in advance before a friend's wedding. When my wife and I arrived around 7pm, we were charged for the whole 6 nights in advance. Once in the room, we noticed the images Mayis has on don't show how small they are. Everything's small; the shower, TV, ceiling fan, etc. We slept one night there and decided to get another hotel because we were tripping over each other. When we talked to the manager about an early checkout/ refund, she said it's impossible and that she'd move us to a bigger room instead. We took the key to the bigger room, but found that it too was small. So, I spoke to They couldn't get the Mayis to do early checkout, but they did give me a credit and helped me get a room at the Victoria! (Thanks guys!) After I switched hotels, the Mayis actually called me there demanding their room key back so they could rent it to someone else!..while still keeping my money! I said NO and kept the key in case I needed a place to crash while in the center, although I never did. The last day on my Mayis booking, I tried to let a friend stay there. Mayis made a huge fuss about it and refused to let him stay, basically angry that I had not let them double book the room. Just awful. But, hey, the room WAS clean!

Traveler Beware
I booked a double bed room for a week in Oaxaca. I was meeting a friend there and upon arriving at the hotel the desk clerk stated my room was only for one person and wanted to charge me twice for what I had already paid for. The Expedia app states that the room is for 2 people and that any one extra including children maybe charged extra. We were only 2 persons so no additional charges were expected. I argued my point and the clerk said we could figure it out later and that I could proceed to the room. We were giving two remotes for the two TVs and Air Conditioners. Why would there be 2 of everything if its a room for 1 person. Well its not its meant for two and I wasn't paying double. Please be aware of these situations when traveling.

Great location, nothing fancy but clean.
Hotel Mayis is a small hotel that is close to everything in the center of town. It is clean, yet it needs attention to get it up to par with other hotels in this price range. Towels were rough and thin and a dingy color of what used to be white. The sheets also need to be replaced; one of our beds had a bottom sheet with holes in it and the sheets had some stains in them. On the positive side, rooms were clean and the bathrooms had new sinks and toilet and there were plenty of electrical outlets.

Wouldn't stay again
Although I'd paid for the first night in full in advance, and called ahead to alert the staff that we wouldn't be checking in until 10am the next day, the desk clerk attempted to charge us an additional 200 pesos to "check in early." That's not a lot of money, to be sure -- but more than annoying given I'd already paid for the room and now had to negotiate for something that was already ours. Also found that about half the time our shower had no water, regardless of time of day. (No way the hot water was gone at 5:30 in the morning.) The standard room is very small, but otherwise fine.
