I stayed here in March of 2015 and loved the layout and decor, although a few important elements were lacking. Here are my thoughts: PROs: -Cheaper than comparable hotels in the area - during the height of their most popular tourist season (Easter/spring break), I paid $60 for saturday night and $30 for Sunday. *with 2 month advance reservations -...

This is the first time we've stayed at Los Arcos, we stayed for several nights; the room is spacious and clean, however it was quite warm when we first entered, despite the window being open, and there is only a little window, and no ceiling fan or air conditioning unit, so it took quite some time for the ventilator that...

We stayed at Los Arcos in Taxco for two nights in March of 2015. We LOVED our experience at the hotel. Perfect, central location. We had a very spacious, light, comfortable, clean, quiet room. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful -- thank you for your hospitality and a wonderful hotel!

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and were not one bit disappointed. The hotel is very close to the zocalo where we spent most evenings people watching. There is ALWAYS something going on in the evenings. We traveled by bus to get in and out of taxco and this hotel is just a short walk from the... More

Our group that travels through Mexico stayed here on our last visit to Taxco. While parking is a bit down the hill from the hotel, once you drop your bags off, you park the car and never have to use it until you leave. Parking is inexpensive. This hotel is very historic, beautiful courtyard, restaurant inside is very good. Our... More

What is lacks in comfort it makes up in charms - you enter and you are enchanted, But then you have to park two blocks down a very steep (and I mean steep!) calle, drop of your bags and prepare yourself carrying them up three flights of narrow steps yourself. Pack lightly. The room is basic at best, but again... More

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

We enjoyed our stay but, decided to go back to our ole hotel on the square. Luggage assistance would be very helpful at this hotel. The rooms are charming.... once I caught my breath.

I had the chance to experience why they are #2 in town. I would definitely come back. Pros: Really close to the city center and silver shops. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable.
