La Dona Luz Inn, An Historic Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 23 Taos B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 September 2009

We highly recommend this fabulous Inn! Our room was like a private art gallery with lovely art, indian pottery, Kachina Dolls and more. The location is perfect and easily within walking distance of galleries, restaurants and the Plaza. La Dona Luz Inn is the most sensational Boutique" Inn we have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The owner is just as charming as the facility! His knowledge of the area is vast and his own personal history is rich in the Southwest culture. We arrived strangers and left Friends! Please treat yourself to a little slice of heaven!

The art and artifacts in our room reflected the New Mexican culture in a singular way. The people were very friendly and the service was first rate.
Proximity to the plaza is a big plus.
Staying at htis B&B was one of the highlights of our Taos weekend.
Can't even think of going to Taos without staying here again!

We went with two other couples and stayed at La Doña Luz for three nights. Paco and his staff were the nicest hosts I've encountered in 35 years of traveling in the US, Mexico, and Europe. Our group had three rooms total, and we also saw the other rooms for future visits! They are all decorated in lovely colors with various art works. The breakfast buffet was great. We were a block from the Plaza, one or two blocks from the Taos Inn for cocktails and dinner, and about three blocks or less from several museums and galleries.

This historic Inn and B&B offers a wealth of the historic Taos, along with stunning artwork that is not only as pictures but across many of the fixtures and fittings, which make this Inn a superb stay.

Located adjacent to the Plaza, this Inn provides a choice of rooms that range from romantic through to beautiful. The Rainbow Room, which is on two levels with a hot tub above it on the roof, provides couples or families kitchen facilities, along with a unique view of the town from the roof. Hot-tubbing late at night delivers privacy and fun for all.

Proprietor, Paco Castillo, is the ultimate in hospitability and friendliness, welcoming all to his Inn.

It is situated in historic downtown Taos, and bars, restaurants and shops are within close walking distance.

I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

The inn is absolutely amazing. The decor and ambiance is perfect and classic Taos, and the location is unbeatable. The rooms are all spacious, clean, and incredibly comfortable. Paco clearly cares about the inn and his guests and is a wonderful host. I wish I had been able to stay longer!

We return time and time again to Taos and La Dona Luz. This time, our stay was in the Los Angelitos room. After traveling in AZ and sleeping in 3 different beds prior to this, my back was complaining. Angels were truly looking out for us in this room with an exceptionally fine mattress. Special artwork is everywhere in this quiet, old adobe-style inn that is not only peaceful but within walking distance of restaurants and shops.

The rooms were very comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. We were treated wonderfully by the owner and staff. They go above and beyond to take care of their customers. We enjoyed the rooftop spa, a wonderful way to end the day.
The location is perfect, a short walk across the street to the square. The breakfast was delicious with a wonderful selection! By far, the best place to stay in Taos.
