We've stayed at the sister property before (Four Kachinas) and we were equally pleased with El Farolito. The room was very tastefully decorated, extremely clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the patio was a lovely place to have a glass of wine in the afternoon. The location is convenient to downtown. It was nice to leave our car and... More

My husband and I spent a week at El Farolito exploring Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. The property is lovely and within walking distance of everything, which was a plus. The breakfasts were splendid and you can eat in the garden, which is a lovely oasis. We stayed in a casita for the extra privacy and it was very... More

We have stayed here 3 times now and have thoroughly enjoyed it every time. We are sad to leave. We were very spoiled with wonderful breakfast, afternoon cookies, and bottled water restocked everyday in the room fridge. This most recent stay we were celebrating our Anniversary and were given a wonderful bottle of wine to help celebrate. We plan to... More

My husband was not excited about the prospect of staying at a B & B but one night at El Farolito changed his mind! This gated property offers private parking and individual casitas that are immaculately maintained, beautifully decorated, quiet and private. Housekeeping was impeccable and the breakfasts each morning were not to be missed. A variety of juices, home-baked... More

Our stay at El Farolito B & B in August was wonderful. The property and rooms were very well maintained. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated. We also enjoyed the delicious breakfasts including quiches, home baked breads, coffeecakes, and lovely fruit plates. The staff was friendly and helpful. We look forward to a return visit. El Farolito is... More

The B&B was beautifully decorated, extremely functional for travellers, very friendly helpful staff, and outstanding included breakfast. Surpassed our expectations! Also within easy walk to old city sights. Quite gated facility.

We have visited Santa Fe often but this was our first stay at El Farolito and we will definitely stay there again. The location is ideal. It is a very short walk to the Historic Plaza, restaurants, shops and museums. The property is absolutely beautifully landscaped and each casita has something special to offer. Some have their own private patio,... More

This was a revisit for us, since we have stayed here on a number of visits to Santa Fe. The property is located a few blocks from the Plaza and a very easy walk into the shops and restaurants around the square. Parking is off the street and gated. All of the casitas are very inviting and extremely comfortable. Individual... More

I don't speak Spanish but I was interested in the translation of El Farolito and found that 'little lanterns' may be literal version, thus the delightful lights outside our room. We travel for both business and pleasure a lot and find the combination of Santa Fe and the El Farolito, to be very special destination pairing. Our last trip to... More
