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. This hotel is NOT for the weak of heart....The resturant food was good But, it took a very long time to get our breakfast and dinner... More

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. 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
