Reviewed 7 May 2008

We had booked a reservation at another B&B in Sante Fe. Upon our arrival we found the place to be closed. We called the owner of the Old Town B&B in Albuquerque and she referred us to Hacienda Nicholas. Much to our relief and amazment we were treated to the best room in the house and given a break on the room rate because of our situation. Not only was the staff friendly and accomodating but the breakfasts were delicious as were the afternoon wine and cheese treats. The location is only two blocks from the main plaza and within easy walking distance of several excellent restaurants. Carolyn, the gracious owner, operates three B&B's in Santa Fe as well as a wonderful spa. A stay at one of her locations is a treat not to be missed.

Fantasic B&B in the heart of Santa Fe. Wonderful staff, both Ann and Lois made us feel at home. Great southwestern cooking... and the wine and cheese each evening made our stay even more special. We'll definitely come back, thanks for having us!

We've stayed at a number of different B&Bs in Santa Fe, and Hacienda Nicholas ranks at the top in terms of gracious hospitality and, notably, food. It's the only place we've stayed that serves a hot entree every morning and leaves snacks out 24 hours. Annie, the weekend host, is a sensational baker. The living room and patio are spacious and inviting, and there's lots of reading material, including local guidebooks. Our room, one of the less expensive, was comfortable and had a large bathroom. But be forewarned: our room and some others have skylights without blackout shades, and the window shades are translucent, not opaque. At 6:00 am it was too bright in our room to sleep. If you don't like to rise with the sun, ask for a room without skylights.

What a wonderful place! I am a Santa Fe native living now North Carolina. My wife had never visited Santa Fe until our recent trip. I was looking for a place to give my wife a taste of the City Different. At Hacienda Nicholas, I found much more. The staff at the Hacienda Nicholas were wonderful - thank you to Ann, Anna, Dawn and River for your wonderful service!

Carolyn, the owner, is a wealth of information about Santa Fe. Her staff are very knowledgeable about the area, as well. The advice I heard them give other guests was right on target about where to go, what to do and where to eat.

The room was comfy, cozy and just right. We enjoyed our stay and will be back again!

The location is perfect - 3 blocks from the Plaza and on the quiet, residential part of Marcy Street. Other B&B's in the area are located on heavily-traveled Paseo de Peralta.

If you're looking for a good B&B in Santa Fe, you can't go wrong with Hacienda Nicholas.

We enjoyed our stay at Hacienda Nicholas very much - good location (a very short walk into the center of town), breakfast and afternoon / evening wine and snacks were well done. Managers / employees were very friendly and provided a wealth of information about stuff to do, etc. They gave very honest feedback about plans that we had - what to do and what was ok to skip.

The patio area was adorable as well as the dining / common area. A few extra touches to the rooms could bring this B&B from a 3star to a 3.5star property.

On the downside, don't expect to sleep in as breakfast is served from 8a - 10a and noise (and the scent of whatever's on the stove) travels into your room. The beds were super comfortable, but the rooms could be a little "nicer" - you felt very much like you were a guest in someone's home rather than in a hotel, but I guess that's why you stay in a B&B.

The Hacienda attracts a nice group of people - mostly middle age couples and some thirty somethings - very mellow and friendly group.

I would definitely go back.

I am delighted these guests would "definitely come back" and believe that they would be even happier with our more private, quiet and spacious accommodations off the courtyard. The rooms just off the main room are smaller and less luxurious, though are priced accordingly.

My husband and I have just returned from Santa Fe where we stayed in the most wonderful bed and breakfast called Hacienda Nicholas. On the outside it looks unpretentious but the inside is so peaceful, warm and welcoming. Anna met us at the door with a big welcoming smile, led us to a wonderful, cozy room and told us that wine, cheese and one of her famous dips would be ready for us at five when we could meet the other guests and relax on the patio outside. Anna also makes the most delicious breakfast casseroles. She makes up her own recipes and they are so good that you want to stay at the Hacienda eating breakfast all day long! When we return to Santa Fe, we will definitely return to Hacienda Nicholas - a warm smile, gourmet food, welcoming ambience - what more could anyone ask!!
