We use this hotel each year on our silver buying trips to Taxco. We like the central location next to the zocalo and beautiful church of Santa Prisca. The front desk is great - although we do speak Spanish. We buy the breakfast package and like the restaurant. The rooms are very clean and safe. There are a washer and... More

The hotel is good. It is centric, the cathedral its in front. The most wonderful part was the massage, I always take one in every place and this was fantastic. The room it's ok. Bathrooms are small. Be prepared to climb. No heels recommended. Enjoy

The recently renovated bathrooms were nice until I realized there were hairs on the floor of the shower before I stepped in. The remainder of the room looked tidy but the beds were somewhat hard for my taste. All in all, given the location and the price I got (thanks to an online special with breakfast included), I was happy... More

Room was spacious and very clean. Staff were extremely helpful. Location is excellent and the terrace bar has great views over Taxco. We purchased breakfast in the attached restaurant and it got the job done.

I echo other fellow travelers. This hotel's location has already given it 7 points out of ten in my scale. Just across the cathedral and less than 10 minutes away from the Bus station -tremendously practical! Another half a point goes to the gorgeous views from 'La terraza' Bar. Make sure you have at least a drink there. Breakfast at... More

The hotel offers an incredible experience as you will constantly wonder: "how did they manage to build a hotel on such topographic surface". The pool is over the restaurant which is over the rooms which are over the reception which is over the... etc. Just great! Accommodations are good and prices are convenient.

The first thing you need to know about the hotel rooms for any hotel located in central, old town Taxco, is that the rooms are going to be small, and a bit cramped. I've become accustomed to this after several visits to Taxco, which is an absolutely wonderful and charming town. I like to frequent different hotels just for the... More

Lovely hotel situated right in the main town square, the Zocalo. Perfect location if you want to wonder around the streets of Taxco. The rooms are basic but very clean, bathroom can be small (not in all rooms) but very well maintained. The pool is lovely, on a terrace with a nice view (it's not heated though so it may... More

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
