La Dona Luz Inn, An Historic Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 23 Taos B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This property is filled with character and charm and the location is fantastic. Check-in was fairly easy, my room had neat murals, and breakfast in the courtyard was a nice way to start the day. There were just enough little things that, in total, kept me from giving a higher rating...an extremely noisy AC unit and when directed to open the windows instead, finding several weren't able to be opened; several items in minor disrepair; a room too crowded with furniture to move around easily; staff that wasn't very present. All in all though, a pleasant stay and great potential in a unique historic building!

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...
