My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights during a snow storm and not only was the room incredibly roomy, clean, and beautiful, but the host made check in and out totally contactless- seriously it’s been a year since Covid started and no other hotel has been able to get this down. This whole property feels like you’re staying at someone’s magical estate. It was so great and I can’t wait to come back!

My wife and I spent a lovely evening for her birthday in this beautifully appointed boutique hotel in Santa Fe. The Kachina room is warm and inviting with its authentic decorative items as well as the fireplace. The heated tile bathroom floor was a welcome surprise during this time of winter. Definately a must stay when visiting Santa Fe!

Please carefully consider staying with this host. My wife and I felt unsafe and left the property My wife and I wanted to extend our honeymoon a day in Santa Fe. Upon pulling into the parking lot to find our designated spot, we clipped our Sprinter van on a bracket extending from a public utility pole, doing a fair amount of damage to our van. We called AAA immediately to help limit damage to the van and bracket. The owner of the hotel accused us of destroying her property, demanded I turn over my identification to her, called the police on us, had her family circle us and take pictures of us and threatened us with an attorney. She is also refusing to return our money. The Santa Fe police, fire department, utility folks and tow drivers could not have been more kind and reassuring. The police told us to leave as soon as we could, and had to tell the owner of the hotel to let us leave without incidence. In a moment where kindness would have gone a long way, this host called the police on us, threatened us with an attorney and has effectively stolen our money. This was an unnecessarily hostile experience, and we encourage you to think carefully about staying with this host.

Please read this description of facts carefully. We must be aware about how dangerous irresponsible, selfish and dishonest people could be. How sad to have to end the year and start the new one having this kind of bad time and always associated with this person. The perception of reality is such a delicate matter, fortunately today we as society have a series of media that reliably demonstrate the facts: PNM (electricity provider in New Mexico) , 911, police reports and Comcast. Not to mention the security cameras that are in our private parking lot, to protect the cars of the clients of our boutique hotel and also our property from unscrupulous people who damage others and seek to escape their responsibilities. My name is Carolina, and my main role is not just to be "the wife of ..." I am a business woman, in charge of my life and in partnership with Manuel (“my husband”), we have developed a boutique hotel in the City of Santa Fe that consists of 3 historic houses, 12 rooms and a private parking of 15 spots. This reservation to our establishment was made through AirB & B. Through that same platform and early in the morning this person contacted us to request an early check in. In that same platform, we kindly made an exception and without any charge authorised them to make an entry before the established time. Emails, reception letter with emergency telephone number and access codes to the room were sent by us and given the characteristics of the tourism van and its size, they were specifically indicated where should park. With surprise we received the call from a hotel guest and also from a neighbour, who could not understand how this van could have been embedded in part of a public property pole (PNM) and also scared that in various failed attempts to remove the van, this will end up throwing the pole over the houses that make up our property. Given the size of the vehicle and perhaps the inexperience of the lady who was behind the wheel, in addition to not following instructions on where to park even if the parking was empty (Thank God!), It surprises me more that in an act of responsibility the driver have not called the owner of the hotel with whom as I said, had already contacted to request an early check in. Indeed when we arrived at our property, my husband and our adolescent children could not believe what we saw. Neither did the neighbours who passed by and not to mention the couple of guests who were waiting for us to narrate the events. I walked toward the van and asked how this had happened, the answer "We didn't do it on purpose." I imagine that, what I can't understand is how it happened if the parking lot was empty and precise indications of where to park were discussed. Indeed, I asked about insurance and if the car was the driver’s property (they replied that it was rented). Again I asked for a copy of a driver's license, which was refused. Instead they told me that they were seeing to remove the van as soon as possible. Then the man came to talk to me and I was in my car and actually with my lawyer on the phone, who instructed me to immediately notify PNM and our insurance company. Given the existing risk, we were also instructed to take photos of the incident and, given the prior refusal to identify properly, take photos of the registration plates of the vehicle. So far a standard procedure when an incident like this happens. Isn’t it? Since the streetlight is public use but a PNM property on our private land, we also received instructions to call PNM. In doing so, the PNM operator asked me for all the information about the incident: my name and address, identification of the driver, photos of the incident, of the vehicle, license plates and pole. Everything was sent by mail at that very moment. The PNM operator made a report which records a file number and as part of an established procedure she proceeded to call 911. In a telephone conversation and with PNM again recording everything, 911 asked us if anyone was injured (I told them no) or if under the influence of alcohol or substances (I also told them no). We were -I was- instructed not to approach to the driver or the vehicle and simply wait for the arrival of the police. Finally the police, firemen and an ambulance arrived. They verified the damage to the vehicle, made a damage report (which also includes a file number) and told us that they did not believe that the pole would fall, but that to avoid risks a tow truck would come to remove the van. He asked us to wait for that to happen and that in the event of any unfortunate situation with the driver, we would not hesitate to call them immediately. At that point and with all the police deployment, the neighbours did not stop calling our phone and all we wanted was to give everyone peace of mind. Although it may seem surprising, we do have a responsibility to our neighbours, but also or more importantly, it is the lives and safety of our guests who are inside the rooms of our hotel where, thank God, the post affected by their vehicle did not fall. That is a moral duty that does not stand up to further analysis when one has been educated in the value of the word responsibility or at least decency. At around 1.30pm the tow truck finally came and the vehicle was removed from our premises. The drivers -unsurprisingly - left without giving any apology or explanation. At 3pm PNM came, changed the metal parts of the damaged pole and took a copy of the police report. The procedure they will initiate is not of my knowledge. What indeed it is of my knowledge and also of the driver and person who made and signed the reservation with Air B&B, are the reservation policies of a room in our hotel. These people literally left the hotel without any explanation and even more so, they made a last minute cancellation of their reservation directly with AirB&B. In the reservation policies it is clearly indicated that AirB & B does not proceed with any kind of money refund. How different would everything be if from the beginning with proper manners and in the correct way, the people who are the protagonists of this long list of mistakes had acted correctly and honestly: if damage is caused to the property of others, the owners are called upon of the damaged, responsibility is demonstrated, an apology is requested. But that would be another story, not the one that sadly we had to live as the real victims of this unfortunate situation.

Our room was one of 10 or so private suites with our own front porch, very comfortable beds and chairs. It is beautifully decorated and very pleasant to be in for several days. My favorite part of the area is the garden with relaxing sofa and chairs where I could read and a table where I could work. It has an overhang to keep the sun out, but also places you can sit if you want sun. Very quiet and clean and another great thing is it's location - just a 10-15 minute walk into town!
