This is an old building but a beautiful one at that. Good location. The rooms are authentic, clean with very comfortable beds & clean linen . It is an old building therefore there is a feel of shabby chic yet it's well organised with beautiful furnishings & textiles. I would stay here again it's the only hotel in Taxco that... More

Although this is a very old hotel, it is very historical. The architecture is classic old Spanish. There are many stairs and no bellboys to carry the load. Not for older people or people who have problems climbing. There is a quaint meeting room off the lobby that was the highlight of this eddifice. Unfortunately, the entrance is off the... More

Staff is very kind and helpful. Great views of the city. Great food at the restaurant (slow service though) Cons: Parking is a bit far from the... More

While the hotel is charming and inexpensive, they have some issues. First, hire some people to assist with the luggage. After we hauled our three large suitcases up a narrow staircase, I watched an elderly couple haul their luggage into their room. Both times, the front desk clerk just stood there. Next, the curtains were so thin, the light outside... More

Hotel is set in an old building ( ex monastery) with very interesting courtyard area with an old tree. Rooms are big enough, rusticaly equiped with comfortable bed. There is special place on the rooftop deck, big terrace with amazing views where we spent few happy hours playing guitar and singing. Ideal location only few minutes from Zocalo is additional...

I think the building dates from the 17th century and it oozes with charm. Lovely courtyard area in the center with rooms situated all round the square of the courtyard on different levels. I almst missed the views from the roof which are pretty good ! My room was spacious and well decorated with a very comfy bed. It is... More

Pros - Friendly and helpful staff throughout (one lady spoke some English and took time to mark on the map good spots to visit and how to get there etc) - Located a few minutes from main square on a quiet street, it was perfect - Rooftop deck is amazing. Large with great views and spots to lounge around (including... More

We stayed for 1 night over Day of the Dead weekend and thought it was lovely. As other reviewers have mentioned, Los Arcos is a converted monastery, with a pretty courtyard restaurant (well worth a visit for dinner), and spacious, clean rooms with comfortable beds in a rustic design. There is a roof terrace with seating and great views across... More

We were only there for one night and we found it adequate for our needs. The location was very central i.e. near the zocalo and silver shops. Our room was quiet, clean and fresh and the staff was helpful. Taxco is worth a visit since it is so different and interesting.
