Stunning beautiful rambling mansion with many different rooms in different styles. All with great bathrooms. Connections with amazing guides. Extremely friendly and forthcoming manager. Library full of historical documents and also light reading. Numerous courtyards. All clean and very well cared for. Some wifi available and in the near future a new cell phone tower. I would go there again... More

Very nice hotel. An old and big house, well maintained and clean. The service was excellent. We stayed there for two nights plenty of "talking moments" at the end of the afternoons. No luxury, but a lot of histories. Try the "lechuguita"!

We stayed at the Riverside Lodge in Batopilas on our 8 day trip to the Copper Canyon. This hotel absolutely just takes your breath away. Its decor takes you on a trip back in time. Each room is totally unique and has an old fashioned bath tub. All the rooms are lit with candle light and each room leads off... More

This would be the best hotel in Batopilas. From the moment you walk in the door, the serenity surrounds you. Every room is unique - there are no bad rooms. Yes, its a basic hotel, but in this part of the world its 5 star. Each room is individually decorated with interesting and historic tit bits. A coffee awaits first... More

Our two day stay at the Riverside Lodge and with Martin, the manager, was exceptional. The entire hacienda experience was very special and relaxing and complements the atmosphere of Batopilas. Don't worry about the extra cost which really isn't that much over regular motel rooms in Batopilas. The experience will remain with you forever. I would also like to say... More

As many others have said, this is an incredibly special place, I doubt more than a few of these exist anywhere. The property is remarkable, I've spent several hours just wandering through it and enjoying all the little areas. As a landscape designer, I so appreciate the thought, and fun, and folly, and touches that have gone into this property.... More

This is one of the most beautiful small boutique hotels I've ever stayed at or seen. The ceilings in the salon are painted as are the walls throughout the hotel. The manager is attentive, the breakfast good and after a long day of hiking we were greeted with cold naranjito juice freshly sqeezed from fruit on their trees.

It's a long and beautiful drive on a rough road to Batopilas. What a marvel to find the colourful Riverside Lodge and the most charming of all Managers. Martín Alcaraz Gastelum was always on hand to give us a wonderful stay. Caring to see that we made nice and safe excursions. Gracias Amigo Martín

Riverside Lodge is located in a deep canyon that takes a bit of effort to get to, but it is totally worth the effort. Batopilas is 5-6 hours on a long winding road from Creel, deep into the canyon and silver mining history. The hotel is really a grand casa set back in time with all the history and nooks... More

This place is unlike no other hotel I have ever stayed in. It is a magical place, that captivates visitors. I would go back in a heartbeat. We stayed at the Riverside Lodge on our recent trip down into the Copper Canyon. The hotel is managed by the most lovely man, Martin, whose thoughtful touches and friendly presence go above... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Riverside Lodge in Batopilas is a 19th century restored hacienda. Batopilas, once a major supplier of silver worldwide during the late 19th century, was an opulent silver mining town.The shady courtyards invite relaxation after a day out on the trails. Guests can also relax and visit with friends in the elegantly appointed salon, filled with Victorian-inspired furnishings; crystal chandelier, hand painted wall stencils, gorgeous paintings and a huge ceiling mural are all reminiscent of a bygone Victorian era.Guest rooms are furnished with antique beds and claw foot tubs, and Moorish style windows look out into the cobbled street. ... more   less
