“Wonderful Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

We stayed for 5 nights at El Farolito Bed and Breakfast -very warm, friendly, great staff, lovely rooms, well-located, delicious breakfast, Wayne and Cherie were lovely and helpful -responding to all questions and excellent suggestions about what to do, which restaurants to go to. The rooms are absolutely lovely and comfortable. Would definitely go back if we were going to Santa Fe. Patti and Tom

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 non-meat eaters; the friendliness of the entire staff. We have sampled at least 6-8 different hotels, condos and B&Bs in Santa Fe, and plan to return to El Farolito.

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 are immaculate and well decorated in a Southwestern style, and the breakfasts are abundant and delicious. I hope El Farolito will have our casita waiting for us the next time we head out to Santa Fe.

Room Tip: Our room had a tiny private patio. It made it seem like our own home.

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 that made you feel like you were at home instead of in a hotel. I will happily stay here again when I return to Santa Fe in the future because El Farolito offers an excellent guest experience.

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 terrific and is only a 5 minute walk to the Plaza or a little bit longer to the rail yard. The rooms are spectacular with each having its own unique feel and decor. Breakfasts are terrific. In one of those things that's hard to describe we just feel extremely comfortable, welcome and it just has an feel to it that transports you to another place and time. We just love it here and in my view there is not a better place to stay when visiting Santa Fe. Go and enjoy every minute of your stay.

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 leaving the intensity of the center of town. The manager even gave me a ride to the trail head for my hike.

Room Tip: The road is pretty quiet at night; we had the casita closest to the road and it just wasn't a pr...
