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

Stayed because it was right downtown & wanted to be close. Rooms & bath were very clean and that is important! Had a balcony although it was too cold to enjoy. Did use the cozy gas fireplace nightly & in the am! Very quaint hotel. Has been remodeled. Felt it was pricey for off season and they charged me for... More

We have spent two weeks on different occasions. Charming lobby and location on historic and beautiful Taos plaza. Common areas with fireplaces, in hotel restaurants and coffee bars, shopping and restaurants walking distance. Very quiet. Helpful staff. Some rooms better than others (real fireplace). The display of art is a plus, and some historic paintings are there (DH Lawrence).

My husband and I were traveling from Denver to Santa Fe and wanted to stay one night in Taos on the way. We loved the La Fonda so much that we decided to cut our Santa Fe trip short so we could come back and stay another night on the way home!
