This hotel's location can not be beat, it sits right on the Plaza. The hotel is modest, but well-taken care. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is plenty of parking around the back, (there is a charge). There are also many restaurants within walking distance.

We selected the Hotel La Fonda de Taos based on reviews. We wanted to be close to the Plaza in a nice, quaint hotel that wasn't too noisy and full of kids. This place fit the bill perfectly. As others have noted, the staff were very friendly and attuned to our needs. Also, our room was immaculate! We chose a... More

I didn't know what to think about staying at a Hotel that is on a Plaza... Boy was I surprised! We arrived and was greeted by 2 wonderful faces and so helpful! The La Fonda Taos is very beautiful. Our room was so cute and very clean. Being right on the Taos Plaza is a great experience... we could walk... More

This is a very old hotel, but looks and feels well kept. Everything in the Southwest style. It contains a Starbuck's with free coffee for guests. It's primary advantage is its location -- actually on the small Taos Plaza -- which makes easy walking to all of the Plaza shops. The staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome.... More

This hotel is operated like a family business and everyone involved from the hotel staff to the coffee shop personnel are very friendly. They aim to please and it's very evident. This time we stayed in a room that faced the plaza and were very pleased. Highly recommend this place as your "center point" when visiting Taos.

La Fonda de Taos is THE place to stay in Taos. Located directly on the Plaza, it is a historic and significant building which has been completely restored. Beautiful rooms, charming lobby with a coffee shop attached. Fireplaces in the lobby and in the balcony sitting area. Excellent staff and service. One drawback. Many rooms require some steps to reach... More

Better than we expected. Located right off the plaza. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very clean. We came for the weekend and will definitely stay here again.

We walked up to the Hotel La Fonda in Taos and asked for a room. We got a corner suite on the 2nd floor. It was just my husband and I, and we were driving around the area just doing a little road trip. We loved the little room - it was right on the town square, and the staff... More

We stayed for 2 nights. Room was quaint, not big, very clean. We had a balcony and fireplace. Right on the historic square was fun people watching from the balcony. Close to dining and shops. For those that have been to Taos, its a very congested drive, hard to get from point a to b by car, so it was... More

We didn't have a lot of time to spend in Taos, so it was important to have a conveniently located hotel. La Fonda was perfect. The room was not large, but quaint and clean. We arrived quite late and the night staff couldn't have been more helpful in getting us settled. The day staff was friendly as well. The hotel... More
