NaNa Vida Hotel Boutique is a place where artisanal hospitality is our commitment; where culture, art and flavors of Oaxaca live together, in a privileged location steps away from restaurants and bars, and only 600 meters away from Santo Domingo Convent, in the heart of the State of Oaxaca. Its name comes from the expression of joy used in the region of the Istmo de Tehuantepec, which means, “What a Blessing!”, same feeling that lives in us when we have the privilege of being selected by our guests to host their stay.
NaNa Vida Hotel Oaxaca is located in the heart of Oaxaca City, only 500 meters away from Santo Domingo Convent and steps away from famous restaurants and bars. If you are looking for cultural spots, the San Pablo Cultural Centre is located three blocks away, same as the Macedonio Alcalá Theater. Museums are also a constant in the City, and you can walk to most of them from the hotel. The textile Museum, Rufino Tamayo Museum or the Cultures Museum of Oaxaca are only a few examples of this. Enjoy the colors and environment of the City, within a 10 minutes’ walk you can be in the famous Jalatlaco neighborhood, or a 20 minutes’ walk to the Xochimilco neighborhood. Our “barrio” will delight all of your senses.
