I fell in love with this inn. It is very historic, with art, antiques and visually stunning native american rugs and artifacts everywhere you look. Paco does an incredible job taking care of guests. Wonderful local flavor breakfasts. Walkable to many restaurants and shops. Very quiet but very close to the Plaza. Not touristy and has a very authentic feel... More

We went up for a couple nights during the summer, took the kid and had a ball. The perfect Taos town stay for a great price. The location is perfect: just steps away from the plaza, galleries, shops, restaurants, and within walking distance of Kit Carson park. Rooms are cozy, clean, and cute, and whole place is packed with folk... More

If you're looking for a taste of the southwest, you can't do better than this. The rooms are beautifully decorated with real art, authentic southwestern architectural details and comfortable spanish/southwestern furniture. The owner, Paco has deep roots in Taos and was a source of some great stories told sitting around the kiva at breakfast, which contrary to a couple of... More

Love everything about this b & b. The cozy fire in the breakfast room, ample choices for the morning meal. Comfy bed and everything clean and warm. Great art, great vibe. Can't wait to return for a longer stay.

Just spent 6 days at La Dona Luz and cannot believe how lovely it was. For starters, it is smack in the middle of historic downtown Taos (right across the street from Kit Carson's house and Mabel Dodge Luhan's home is about 4 blocks away as is the historic cemetery.) You can leave your car parked and see the entire... More

This was our first experience staying at a bed and breakfast. Overall we would stay again because the location is perfect and the price is reasonable. I've read here several complaints about the breakfast. Perhaps other B&B's serve fancy meals. The breakfast has all the basic foods. Yes it is not fancy but it met my expectation....the coffee was good... More

My husband and I so enjoyed our stay at La Dona Luz right after Christmas, and cannot wait to return. We stayed in La Luz, the incredibly cozy little room at the very top of the stairs, from which there are incredible views of the mountains. We particularly loved the cozy little sofa (with PLENTY of light for reading our... More

We spent four nights at La Dona Luz just after Christmas--it was our third stay there and we have reservations for a fourth stay in the fall. I can't imagine a more perfect place to stay in Taos. Hidden down a narrow lane, La Dona is a jewel inside. Each room is decorated differently (we stayed in the Yellow Bird... More

We stayed in The Santiago Room. We thought the room was spectacular. It has very unique pieces of art, some very old. We really liked Paco, the manager. He was very warm and welcoming. We may not stay there again for one reason and one reason only: the breakfast was below par. My husband and I have been to over... More

We stayed in the Rainbow Room at La Dona Luz and had a fabulous time. Paco, the innkeeper, was so friendly, funny and accommodating. It was cozy, but roomy, and we logged far more time hanging out in the Rainbow Room than we expected. Two fireplaces, a rooftop hot tub, amazing views from every window. La Dona Luz is in... More
