“Very nice place”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

The rooms were very unique and pleasant. Very close to square. Walking distance to all the shops and art galleries. Will definetly stay again. Great atmosphere and breakfast was very good. Sonrisa seemed small at first, but became our favorite room. Very highly recommended.

We spent just one night at La Dona Luz and it was delightful. We were greeted at the door by the owner Pablo's 90 year father Carlos who filled us in on the history of this beautiful home and helped us with lunch and dinner suggestions. We stayed in the Yello Bird suite on the main floor - so beautiful. We even had a patio to enjoy a nice evening and our delicious breakfast. There was no air conditioning but a fan in the window helped - it was an unusually warm day! Loved the short walk to visit galleries and shops

Great B&B in the heart of Taos in an authentic, historic adobe dwelling. The rooms are distinctive and comfortable. The owner, was committed to making our stay enjoyable. A really fun experience and unique experience.

Second visit and would not stay anywhere else. Each room is unique, the walls covered with art, tiled bathrooms. Paco and his staff are friendly and accomodating. Great location steps away from the plaza, galleries and shopping. Beautiful flower filled courtyard. Can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Book early!

We've stayed in Taos many times over the years but have never stayed here as they are always booked. We were fortunate to get in for a one night stay. We had the Santiago room which is spacious, jetted tub, windows facing the mountains. Very quiet and has evaporative cooling as well as a corner fire place. Would highly recommend this place. Staff are warm and gracious and the owners grandfather lives onsite and he is a warehouse of knowledge of the area.

Room Tip: Santiago room was great on second floor. All rooms except the Willow room require climbing steep st...

Ten stars!! The most unique place we have ever stayed. The entire building is a huge art gallery. Attention to detail is everywhere. Paco is a great guy & has worked so hard to create a great inn. We had the unique experience of getting to know Paco's father, Carlos, who entertained at breakfast with wonderful stories & was outside later staining woodwork. Amazing man! Happy 90th birthday, Carlos!! We will be back soon.

Room Tip: The Rainbow Room is fabulous. Full kitchen, private hot tub on roof with great views!! Any room at l...
