Casas de Suenos Old Town Historic Inn
Ranked #7 of 13 Albuquerque B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 18, 2008

The staff at the Casa De Suenos ("House of Dreams") make this the place to go in old town Albuquerque. From the front desk personnel, housekeeping staff and breakfast personnel, everyone had a kind word and a smile.

Another pro is the quaint (if crumbling) courtyard, as well as the comfy beds (a big priority for me). We were in the "Taos" King suite which was located away from the courtyard. The bathroom was medium sized and clean. It had a bit of a "motelish" feel, but the room was quiet and we felt safe.

The brick in the courtyard is badly in need of repair, and the landscaping could do with a bit of an overhaul. Maintenance overall appeared to be a bit lacking.

The hotel is located off the beaten track a bit, but very close to our favorite old town Albuquerque restaurant, Antiquity (see my review of this restaurant).

Otherwise, for an economical, comfortable and quiet choice in old town Albuquerque, you can't go wrong!

We loved Casas de Suenos. I called the property to see which casita would suit us best and Larry was very helpful. We stayed in the Zuni, which is outside the main compound (an artist's colony in the '30's.) The advantage is that we had easy in and out access and parked our car next to our casita. When we checked in the young woman walked us to our casita and then came back later with maps and literature for some locations she thought we'd find helpful. We were given keys to the gate so that even if we returned late (or got up early) we still had access to the main compound and the gardens. Also, the room has a fabulous mural of Native American women with traditional pots, a kiva fireplace, saltillo tile floor, adobe headboard and end tables. All-in-all an enveloping Native American flavor. Cannot compare with traditional hotels or even B&B's, there is plenty of privacy in any of the 20 casitas and while the propery is well aged there is a certain "patina" about it. The breakfast was outstanding with juices, breads and rolls, cereals, yogurt and fresh fruit PLUS the eggs, omelet, burito or french toast of your choice. The room was clean and spacious and the towels were sumptuous. There was no tub, only a shower, not a problem for us. A very relaxing place to stay with an attentive staff. Very close to Old Town, the BioPark (Gardens, Zoo), the Natural History Museum, the Atomic Museum, Explora!, Albuquerque Museum and much more. If we ever have another opportunity to go to Albuquerque, will definitely consider staying here again.

This is a lovely B & B with lots of charm. There were a few problems. All the rooms are different. You will need to ask about your bathroom. Ours was VERY small. It was clean and updated, but seemed to have been added into a closet. We had only one window that opened so we couldn't get any cross ventilation so the night was stuffy. We stayed in the Georgia O'Keefe so there are probably more options. The sitting area was very comfy, and we enjoyed the breakfast and the easy walk to Old Town.

Casas de Suenos (Houses of Dreams), please note that the actual name of this B&B uses the plural not singular. Casas de Suenos is a real hidden find. The location is fantastic as Old Town is within easy walking distance as are other sights of interest and many things are within easy driving distance. The property is charming, and the accommodations are spacious and very comfortable. When you are on the property, you do not even realize you are in the midst of a rather busy area of Albuquerque. It is easy to imagine what the place was like when it was an artisit colony instead of a B&B. The made-to-order breakfasts are a very special treat as is the bright, sunny room in which breakfast is served. Our room had an original mural by Amado Pena which really made our accommodation special. Both the front desk staff and the breakfast staff were very friendly. This has to be one of the best kept secrets of Albuquerque and I would highly recommend it.

I'll repeat one more time: it is absolutely the BEST place to stay in Albuquerque! Just two blocks from the plaza with restaurants and shops. Very clean. Very friendly!

We stayed at Casas De Suenos twice when we were on vacation in NM back in May/June 2008.
Stuff was very helpful and knowledgeable. They made lots of great recommendations for places to eat.
Rooms are exclusive. For our first night we stayed in Rose room and for our second night at La Miranda Suite which was out of this world!

Your stay also includes very healthy and yummy breakfast. We are definitely going to stay here next time we will be in Albuquerque.

Our special thanks go to Robin for her restaurant recommendations and her cheerful personality and to Scott for the best breakfast ever!

My husband and I spent the last 4 days of our New Mexico vacation at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast - Casa de Suenos, in Albuquerque,NM. - from Friday June 5 till Monday June9.2008
It is located in what they call Old Town and is a National Historic Trust Property.
My husband found it on their website.
The grounds - the interior private gardens were so artistically landscaped... I took so many photos.
Each casita had backdoors that opened into this oasis. The casita we stayed in was El Prado. It was a cute little home away from home with a kitchen, living room, bed room and bath. So very private. You could even entertain guests here!

We would highly reccommend that you have the green chile cheese made to order breakfast omelette- it was fantastic- I had it for 3 consecutive mornings! The service was great and everyone from the cook to the wait person to the front desk person was friendly and so helpful ... gave us maps of the Old Town- which is a great section to shop and eat.
I did not realize that this historic place was built by an artist- J.R. Willis in 1939. I am an atist and this was such a plesant surpise.

Casas de Suenos means house of dreams, and it was all of that. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The property is located in the "Old Town" area just west of downtown. There are many shops, galleries, restaurants, etc in the area. All are worth visiting. There are 21 different accommodations to choose from depending on the size of your party. Morning complimentary breakfast is great with fruits of all kinds, toast, eggs, bacon, potatoes, bagels, juices. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with benches, swings, gardens, etc. Nice central location. You feel very welcomed at this B&B.
