This hotel could not provide basic facilities expected from a place that claims to be 4*. The swimming pool was not working. Granted, maybe it was low season but still it was 32 C during the day. The hotel did not have any sunbeds! The owner does his best to save the day, provide some towels to put concrete roof... More

We stayed here at the end of our El Chepe ride for a day before heading back to Chihuahua on the train. It was a huge, rambling old mansion with interior courtyards and sweeping staircases, but it was so crammed full -- furniture, potted plants and Mexican kickbacks -- that it's charm was smothered in stuff. The rooms were comfortable... More

This hotel grew on me bit over time but overall I wouldn't stay there again. Both times I was there I had trouble with hot water, noisy marginally functioning air conditioners, and lack of towels. The rooms are very dark and the dining room may or may not be open. The internet did not work. If the owners were actively... More

Treat yourself to a stay at this beautiful, historic hotel! I have stayed there twice bad both times was reluctant to leave. It has spacious, clean rooms that are air conditioned and there are several truly gorgeous patios and open air seating areas. The restaurant and bar were closed....but there is world-class dining just a block away at the Hotel... More

Very pleasant hotel. Decor is amazing. Loaded with antiques and knick knacks but very tastefully done. All in price was about half posted price. Rooms were large,pleasant and clean. Door not eat here so can't comment on food. Staff is small and not very helpful if you need help. They were very nice to us however letting us park or... More

I had booked ahead and was looking forward to the unusual style of hotel as mentioned in many reviews. When I arrived it was badly lit, there was one staff member on duty and there was no place to get anything to eat. I was told that breakfast started at 7 in the morning (not included but I knew I'd... More

Maybe the problem was room number 18, but I cannot recommend this hotel. When we entered the room, it smelled terrible, the stench coming from the bathroom. I reported the problem, so the woman at the desk came in to the bathroom to spray something. She said the smell would go away and said we could change rooms if it... More

We stayed here 2 separate nights in different rooms, book-ending our trip to the Copper Canyon. The inside of the hotel is truly amazing, the decor, furniture and art make you feel like you have walked into the quintessential Mexican Hacienda. Others may have had issues with beds - we had NO such problems in either room we stayed in,... More

I loved staying at the family run Hotel El Fuerte. Walking into the hacienda every time is a treat as you can see art, and furniture that Silvia has collected for decades from all over Mexico. If you are an art lover, this will not disappoint. In fact, I found it much more interesting and high quality than the museum... More

Recommended by the 3 Amigos. Arrived late and tired. Welcome less than overwhelming. Shown to stiffling hot room on the top floor. No information in the rooms and no obvious chance of getting a cold drink in the hotel so we turned on the aircon and went for a walk in the town square. Finally came across a small bar/restaurant...
