We recently spent 3 nights at this B&B, and were delighted with everything: the comfortable casita for 2 with its sumptuous bed and private little patio; location within easy walking to the Plaza and the Railyard, away from the hustle of the town center; the graciousness and knowledge of our host, Wayne; the excellent breakfasts which were readily adapted to...

Knowledgeable, engaging and cordial hosts and wait staff. Everybody who works on site is always ready to chat about what's going on in town or in nearby spots like Taos to help you plan your day. The property is on the edge of the old town--well within walking distance but in a quiet area and away from tourists. The rooms... More

El Farolito is a small property within a 10 or so minute walk of the Plaza area. Our room was nicely decorated and the property well kept. Wayne, one of the owners, was a phenomenal host and his staff were also top notch. The breakfast offered in the dining room every morning had a good selection of freshly prepared foods... More

We were at El Farolito for three nights recently. Very nice rooms with great decor. We were able to walk to the Old Town plaza. Breakfasts were wonderful and the innkeepers very helpful with determining daily plans for sightseeing.

Second time staying at this property and its hard to believe but it was even better that the first time which was outstanding. Wayne (the owner & host) is awesome offering all kinds of advice for local things to do and we had the pleasure of just talking with him for awhile over coffee which was great. The location is...

My husband and I stayed here in mid-December 2013 and would definitely stay there again. The main house was beautifully decorated for Christmas, the breakfasts were varied, always with something freshly baked. Our casita had a fire place and was clean as could be. It is a short walk from downtown--a nice walk that makes you feel like you are... More

My wife and I spent 5 nights at the El Farolito B&B in mid April. Except for a very brief stay (one afternoon) over 40 years ago, we had not spent any time in Santa Fe. El Farolito was a great location for staying close to all of the old town attractions. We could walk anyplace we needed to go... More

I began staying at the El Farolito in 2000 and have stayed in all 7 castitas (a few on more than one occasion- my favorites are the Acequia Madre and the Garcia). There is no better place to stay in Santa Fe. Each adobe casita is tastefully decorated with local art and boasts wonderful linens and bedding. The breakfast room... More

My husband and I stayed at El Farolito for 5 nights in celebration of our 30th anniversary. The room we had (#6) was the perfect romantic spot. Charming, clean, comfy bed with excellent quality linens, loved the Kiva fireplace which we lit every night and every AM - added such lovely atmosphere to our room. We had our own private... More
