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.

I was here for almost a week. The hotel, a converted monastery, is colonial charm personified. The lovely young ladies at the front desk were charming, but spoke no English. I did quite a bit of translating for hapless Americans. The room on the roof was great with a magnificent view. There is no elevator.

Stayed at Hotel Los Arcos for one night while visiting Taxco. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and filled with historic charm. It is an old monestary transformed into a hotel. So if you are looking for modern and new, this is not for you. The center of the hotel is a garden with trees and ponds. The rooms are spacious... More

Love it. Lovely and unpresumptious. Clean. Beautiful! Oaxacan tapestries, quiet charming hotel and restaurant. Not for people who want amenities and splash, but for those who want solitude and charm and old world charm and history.

We looked at Hotel Los Arcos, whilst staying at another hotel in Taxco, and decided to extend our stay by two nights when they permitted our dog to stay with us in one of their very nice rooms ( the dog water bowl at the front entrance gave us the clue to ask). This hotel is very convenient to the... More
