Lovely, quaint hotel. Rooms were so nice and roomy...except for bathroom, TINY!!! Loved having a fireplace and separate living area. We could not get the a/c to cool but it was cool outside so we just opened the windows. Beds very comfy and bedroom roomy. Did NOT like toting bags upstairs BUT they did ask if we needed help and...

First time staying here and when we arrived early our room wasn't quite ready but they called me to let me know when it was ready. We ended up on the second floor at the very back which is quite excellent as there are stairs that take you to the back of La Casa Sena and Palace Avenue so you... More

The Hotel Chimayo is a lovely option, conveniently located just a block from the plaza (next to Inn of the Anasazi) with Santa Fe charm. A below grade garage makes it easy to park and walk to downtown attractions. My room included a small sitting area that provided a nice spot to relax at the end of the day. I... More

Spectacular service. Attention to detail. Amazingly located in the center of Santa Fe. Perfect getaway with my husband. We needed to recharge our batteries and this did the trick. Walking distance from anything we needed. Not posh, just perfect Santa Fe.

We recently stayed at this hotel and found the location excellent--close to the plaza. The bed was also great. However, those were the only two redeeming qualities. The carpet was badly stained; the windows were quite dirty; the decor was tired and uncomfortable. We were given two tiny soaps which were not replenished, and our glasses were not replaced. There...

We came to Santa Fe to get married, and we chose this hotel because we'd had dinner here in the now defunct restaurant upstairs 2 years ago. At that time, the hotel seemed very vibrant, quaint, and we loved the inner courtyard. Fast forward to now, and it just feels like someone gave up. Is it nice? Well yeah, in... More

Dear Umbraco, Thank you so much for your feedback. Because of the system we have with the heating and air conditioning, it does get a bit hard to keep the rooms at a comfortable temperature at all times of the day without using the fans or opening windows during this time of the year. I apologize for any inconvenience or... More

The Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe is absolutely charming. The décor in our room and throughout the hotel brought a sense of history and place that made me feel I was really a part of New Mexico. I read some reviews where people were creeped out by the crucifixes, but I thought they were pretty cool and made the whole... More

I've stayed many places downtown and like the smaller hotels and boutiques. I have to say this one is the best! Amazing location, great and friendly staff, large and comfortable rooms with that Santa Fe charm. I recommend the Hotel de Chimayo over the Luxe or the other small inns downtown.

The best thing about our stay at this hotel was the friendly service and the luxury treatment of its guests in all respects. Loads of pillows on the bed to find the "just right" fit for us, gorgeous decore without pretension, just easy, quiet comfort. Wonderful beds - not too hard or soft. The balcony in our room added a... More
