“unique and very beautiful”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Very beautiful hotel downtown Albuquerque. Absolutely loved the Spanish decor and overall old world feel of the place. The large lobby is a wonderful place to relax and have a drink. Room was amazing, great bedding and huge bathtub. Would definitely stay here again when in town.
We also had dinner at the in house restaurant, delicious and wonderful menu with great service.

I travel to New Mexico on business quite a bit and I always look forward to my stay at the Hotel Andaluz. The decor throughout this historic boutique hotel is tasteful and comfortable. The rooms are impeccably clean, well appointed, and the beds and linens fabulous. In particular the lobby and library provide an ambience that I can only describe as that of a large, warm, beautiful home. And I cannot say enough about the second floor outdoor patio and Ibiza Bar. An evening outside on the patio is a must.

The hotel is beautifully unique and warm but what makes my stays so outstanding is the incredibly competent and professional staff. David Brown and the other members of the front desk staff are always friendly and attentive; the bell valet service is responsive and polite, and the rest of the staff always courteous and helpful.

In a word, the Hotel Andaluz is superb!. I would not stay at any other hotel in Albuquerque.

Room Tip: In over 30 stays at the Andaluz I am not sure that I have found a bad room. The "Zen" den...

Driving cross country from Maine, we decided to finally stop after driving 30 hours straight. I mostly picked this hotel because the price was right, but I also liked the idea of not staying at another interstate motel.
When we arrived, we were greeted by valet, who was very kind, and understanding of the packed vehicle. He made a special place for the car so it was not out in the open for someone to be tempted to break in. I thought that was sweet, and very much appreciated.
When we went to check-in we were greeted by David, who was so nice, and understanding of us being an early check-in from the drive, and he knew we were tired, so he upgraded to a bigger room for free. Thank you David! The staff was all very kind and the hotel lobby was very inviting.
We we very tired, so we just wanted a quick bite, and bed. We went to Ibiza for happy hour, and had the best bartender Eric! Eric made our night with his kind smile, and great service. Thank you Eric!
Overall, it was a great experience. We came in the winter when the rooftop bar was open but it was too cold to be outside. There was a wedding in the lobby when we got there, but later it opened up to be a very cool spot for drinks and hanging out.
I would absolutely come back to this hotel and highly recommend it!
Thank you Hotel Andaluz

This hotel is gorgeous, the staff is over-the-top friendly and attentive, and the rooms are stunning. I love love love this hotel! The lobby casbahs are awesome and so pretty. The beds are super soft and the food is awesome. No ghosts in room 701 but I would have happily shared the room. Come to Albuquerque just to stay in this hotel.

Needless to say, Hotel Andaluz is beautifully unique and inviting. What has made my stay so outstanding, though, is the service. My experience with Pamela at reception has restored my faith in the concept of customer service. She exceeded my expectations and impressed me with her outstanding customer service skills and good attitude.

On a recent first-time business trip to Albuquerque, I needed to choose a hotel downtown within walking distance to my business meetings. There were a few to choose from - all equal distance to my destination, so quantity wasn't an issue. It was quality that I was seeking.

As an avid reader of TripAdvisor, I looked up each hotel to read what guests were saying about the my 3 possible choices. What struck me about the Hotel Andaluz wasn't just the many positive comments about hotel guest experiences, but was that hotel management took the time to acknowledge each and every comment - positive and not so positive. That kind of guest experience focus makes all the difference in my mind so Hotel Andaluz it was!

The staff greeted me warmly. My room wasn't quite ready so I took the time to explore downtown and really fell in love with the funky area. I did not experience a great deal of homeless or panhandlers as others have posted. In fact, Central Ave, just 1 block from the hotel, boasts many restaurants, shops and bars in what I would characterize as a safe, easy walk.

The lobby and common areas of the hotel are stunningly beautiful, peaceful and well maintained. The food was fantastic. The Ibiza bar was a nice space, particularly the outdoor area with the fire feature.

My room was unbelievably beautiful with a spectacular view of the mountains. The housekeeping team did a wonderful job keeping things neat and tidy.

As a guest staying for over a week, there was never a time where I wasn't 100% satisfied with the people and the property.

Sure there are plenty of choices for a downtown stay, but if it's quality you seek, choose the Hotel Andaluz.

Well done, Hotel Andaluz! I will definitely be back.

From the gracious check-in to the lobby "casbahs" to the good food in the restaurant — this hotel offers an out-of-the-ordinary experience in an historic setting. My organization hosted a conference here, and we received high marks for our choice of the Andaluz. The staff were all pleasant, accommodating and helpful — even with some of my extra requests (like a humidifier). The lobby is a gem, and really achieves that 'living room' ideal so many hotels are seeking. Tip: you can reserve the little alcoves (called "casbahs") for more private chats over drinks. I'd stay here again in a second!

Room Tip: The hotel offers a really mixed bag — let them know if you'd like elbow room, as some rooms are...
