Marfa is a remarkable city, and the Paisano is a remarkable hotel in this cute desert town. The Paisano hotel is truly an oasis of civilisation in the middle of the desert. I arrived here after I had spent a couple of nights in Big Bend NP and in Terlingua. As beautiful as the location of the Chisos Mountain Lodge in Big Bend NP may be, the rooms there are very old and basic.
At exactly the same price, the Paisano offers much better value for money. The hotel still breathes the atmosphere from its historic high days in the 1930's. The rooms are small, but very clean and lovely refurbished, a successful combination of furniture that matches the feel of the hotel combined with modern equipment such as a flatscreen TV and good airconditioning.
The owner at the front desk was a bit reserved, but friendly. While many of the people I had met in the past days didn't even know my country, he even knew about the complex political situation in my country.
I loved Marfa very much and if I go back, I would certainly stay in the Paisano again.
