A wonderful quiet bed and breakfast located close to the Plaza. Each room is richly decorated with original art and beautiful native crafts. The owner, Paco, is very hospitable and will show you each available room.( A hot tub located on the roof is included with the room on the top floor.) Breakfast is great!

We arrived tired after a grueling day of motorcycle riding through New Mexico back roads that had been recently flooded. The manager/owner met us and showed us where to park the motorcycle. He was cordial and helpful, although quite busy since he was trying to arrange a personal vacation for his own family. He introduced us to his assistant, who... More

Best location in Taos - closest to Plaza and Bent Street. I've stayed there five times, and it's always friendly and fun. Historic, too, with lots of nooks, crannies, art and adorable rooms and suites.

Just admit it. You're in a great location in a wonderful town and yet you just want to stay snugged in at La Doña Luz! Better yet, consider being massaged by jets of water in your hot tub (yes, be sure to pick one of those rooms - and the Sonrisa tub is romantically huge!) while surrounded by bright, quirky,... More

All the rooms are unique - artwork everywhere, much of it hand painted by the owners! Very well located near the plaza and shopping. Once parked, you can walk most of the town. Good breakfast on a flower-filled patio! I will definitely be back and try a different room for fun!

Our stay at La Dona Luz was delightful! The location is great for walking just about anywhere. The B & B is truly a family business and the decor reflects the family history and Spanish roots. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return there again.

This was our second stay at La Dona Luz. We absolutely love it! This inn is truly a gem. We stayed in the Rainbow Room. Paco took us up to the rooftop hot tub to personally show us the ins and outs. He also gave us recommendations for hiking destinations and places to eat close by. The staff is very... More

We found the place on Internet & we loved it from the first photo we saw: enchanted colors, art, flowers & treasures in every corner! When we arrived we met the owner Paco - good hearted & creative artist. He let us to an adorable Sonrisa room where we stayed in for one night, only one but not the last... More

My wife and I stayed two nights in the Santiago room with our pooch. It was perfect for the three of us. The location was so close to the Plaza that we never used our car to shop or eat meals. The Kit Carson Park is down the street for our four-legged friends. The breakfast was good and the staff... More

La Dona Luz is a gem. It's a gorgeous hotel, with immaculate southwestern art and incredible architectural and authentic furniture details, yet it's affordable. Paco, the owner, is the nicest guy you'll ever meet. To boot, the building was his mother's house, and the hotel has been his lobor of love. He has painstakingly restored, expanded and improved upon the... More
