Friendly helpful staff at check in. Comfortable and clean room, which great amenities. The rooftop restaurant / bar was superb, as was the breakfast on offer in the restaurant. Central to everything in Taxco, with silver shops at your doorstep, and in every alley near abouts.

This hotel is definitely on the top of my list of the best places I stayed. First, it is in the center of this chaotic city where the old beetle is the taxi standard. A tip, don't try to drive, it is crazy. The hotel is at 15 sec from the church and the view of the city is breathtaking.... More

The hotel was amazing!! The rooms were very clean, well equipped with fan for the hot weather. The beds were small and the pillow were veeeeery hard only bad thing we found in the hotel. The rooftop view was absolutely AMAZING. I could say best view in town. We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant, and was very good. Also... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were SO HAPPY about the location. The hotel is big, but don't seems so because it has been build around corners and up the hill. The staff is friendly. Not good in english, but very helpfull. The breakfast is average and the wifi only workshop in the hall. There are no aircon

The only good thing I have to say about this hotel is the view from the roof top bar. But you don't need to be a guest to enjoy it. We were put in an economy room due to a lack of space. Room overlooked a rubbish / garbage area & you could smell it due to the grubby I... More

Stayed at the Hotel Agua Escondido again early December with my sister. We enjoy Taxco very much and have been visiting once a year for 7-8 years. Have stayed at the Agua Escondido for many of those visits, the location can't be beat! Whenever there was something fun going on in the square we could go right outside to see!... More

I hesitated to write this review, however I don't have anything positive to say about this hotel. We were there in March for a wonderful trip going through beautiful cities in Mexico, of course Taxco was part of the tour. We rented the suite/penthouse or whatever they call it. We arrived a bit early to the hotel and the room... More

The hotel is situated at the corner of the main square, but most of the rooms are facing other way, so they are not noisy. It is kind of a labyrinth of corridors and terraces with amazing views and a small roof top pool. They have superior and standard rooms. Superior are higher and have better views. My (superior) room... More

The best thing about Agua Escondida is the position, which really cannot be beaten, being right on the Plaza Borda with terraces overlooking both the square and the magnificently ornate Templo de Santa Prisca. It is a rambling place, presumably made up of several once separate but adjacent buildings, with rooms and corridors going off in all directions. Very much... More
