“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Santa Fe is a glorious spot to visit and I have stayed at El Farolito several times... can highly recommend this lovely B & B. Comfortable, clean, beautiful, great breakfast and a staff that is considerate and helpful. Couldn't ask for more.

This is a lovely B&B with wonderfully personal service and attention to detail. Located a few blocks' walk from the Plaza, it is an oasis of calm and rest. We loved the artwork and beautiful landscaping. Casita Garcia (Rm #4) is lovely - there is a garden like sitting area outside front door and has its own small private patio in back. Breakfast was excellent, served in a beautiful room with artwork and sunny windows, or outside on the adjoining patio. The owner Wayne is amazingly helpful and knowledgeable.

Excellent! From the "Santa Fe elegant" decor to the perfect breakfast, nothing about El Farolito is cheap or touristy. You are surrounded by lovely artwork and furnishings, and Wayne is a great host. Easy walk to the Plaza and Canyon Road, but not in the middle of crowds, so it is also a perfect retreat between a day of shopping and an evening out. The oatmeal cookies are a perfect touch!

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.
