If you have looked at places to stay in Posada Barrancas on your trip through the Copper Canyon aboard El Chepe, then no doubt you've seen the amazing views of the Hotel Mirador. The hotel is perched on a cliff! Everything you've read about the view is true. The air, the oxygen, is so beautiful and peaceful, and, the icing... More

Stayed several nights at the Mirador in Copper Canyon, Mexico. Every room has a balcony! The view is beyond anything you could imagine. NOT for folks that have issues with heights. This hotel is hanging off the side of a mountain.

I am not going to try to think up superlatives to "one up" previous posters on how awesome the view is. That it has one of the globe's most splendid views is a given. So I'll keep my review to the facilities, amenities, and staff. When you step off the El Chepe train, there is transport waiting for you. The... More

This hotel has outstanding views and customer service. you are actually on the side of the canyon. the food was included and was very good. the only drawback was there is no wifi or tv in the rooms. I reccomend the horseback riding tour for 2 hours, it was great.

We stayed with 5 senior couples at this marvelous place. The rooms were fine and clean. The staff was were friendly and helpful. The set menu was nice and well appreciated by my 'spoiled' European friends. Unfortunately we could only stay one night before leaving next day to continue our El Chepe train trip.

This hotel is all about the view, and what a view it is. As you arrive there from the back, the hotel looks cute but fairly basic. As you enter your room, you feel the same way: very basic room, old furniture, no tv or AC (actually none is needed, you’re at 7500 feet elevation), small basic bathroom and a... More

What an appalling place. We booked a room with a view and because the hotel had a tour in, which they had not expected when we booked, we got stuck in the annexe, across the railway line. I had to argue with them about the price. The place across the way was far cheaper - 875 pesos per night, but... More

I stayed at Posada Barrancas for a night over Semana Santa. The hotel is beautiful, located right in the middle of the canyon. There was a beautiful viewing terrace to sit on and look out on the canyon. We were able to hike around the hotel and see more of the canyon on our stay. They provide breakfast, lunch, and... More

Rooms are fantastic. Don't get one in the new section...it's too far to walk. The views are amazing, with a decent balcony to see them all. Food in the restaurant was good, and the waiters did an excellent job.
