This was the most amazing place to stay in Taxco. It has a beautiful lush courtyard and large walls that block out the noise of the town. It is clean and amazingly decorated. At a 1/3 of the price of the Best Western, it is a great bargain. I only hesitate to say too much, because I'm afraid it will...

After driving around Mexico for a few weeks..( oaxaca and the costa chica ) ...we stayed in the main house at casa de las palmas in Taxco for a few days. It was a great experience. Taxco is beautiful but can be a bit overwhelming at first. Sitting in the garden or on one of the patios at the house...

On business to Taxco Mexico and found Casa de las Palmas on Trip Advisor. What a find. This compound has a home, a guest apt and a small guest room. I stayed four nights in the guest apt with my business partner. Casa is up a very steep hill from the town square of Taxco. The caretaker and his wife...

My wife and I stayed at Casa de las Palmas for a long weekend in early November. We were accompanied by friends (another couple and their 11 month old baby girl). We stayed in the main house and they were in the apartment. While the main house was certainly large enough to accommodate all of us, this arrangement afforded everyone...

Loved, loved, loved this place! We stayed in the studio, which had a ton of space, a large main room with sitting area and fireplace, a small dining area, a comfortable bed, a small but quaint kitchen, a good-sized bathroom and a balcony. The decor is from all around the world and the owners obviously have great taste and style....

We spent a week in Acapulco. During that week, we spent 2 full days in Taxco. The time in Taxco was not enough. I wish we would have stayed at least 4-5 days. The shopping was fun, but the people of Taxco was the highlight. They were all so friendly and genuine. The restaurants were all very good. The Casa...

I have had the privilege of traveling extensively throughtout Central and South America and can honestly say that the Casa de las Palmas is the best location I have ever stayed at. Absolutely beautiful, and even though it is located in the middle of the city of Taxco, it is surprising quiet and secluded. You feel as if you are...

My husband and I just returned from a cultural trip to Taxco, Mexico. We have been to other Mexican cities in years past and to tell the truth, if it wasn't for the fact that I was on a mission, Mexico would of been the last place you'd find me. Until now! If you are looking to go to a...

Taxco is possibly the most beautiful city in Mexico--strung up and down steep hillsides. The streets are so narrow that all the taxis are VW bugs & they seldom get out of first gear. Casa de las Palmas is only a couple of blocks above the main square where Santa Prisca is located, but they are steep blocks & you'll...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A tranquil oasis in the heart of Taxco, Casa de las Palmas offers Colonial charm and elegance just steps away from the main Zocolo and Taxco's famous silver and crafts shopping. An early 19th Century Main House and early 20th Century art studio turned antique-filled suite surrounding gorgeous private gardens, antiques from around the world, and panoramic views from multiple terraces and roof decks of the city are yours to enjoy, and a pampered alternative to hotels. The compound has hosted a veritable who's who of the "Lost Generation", being the long time home of artist Clinton King, whose first wife, Lady Duff-Twysden, was Hemingway's model for "Lady Brett" in "The Sun Also Rises". His second wife, Narcissa Swift, was memorialized in her friend Georgia O'Keefe's famous painting "Narcissa's Last Orchid". Rivera, Siquieros, Kahlo, and Faulkner are confirmed visitors and many others rumored to have enjoyed our ambiance. Library/office off master bedroom, carved stone fireplaces in living room and bedrooms, wireless internet access, flat screen TV's, cable, and extensive DVD library are here for you to enjoy. Oscar and Silvia, Casa de Las Palmas' attentive managers, are here to make your stay a memorable one. Fresh flowers on arrival, daily continental breakfast, a welcome bottle of tequila, and bottled water are included in your price. Silvia will prepare delicious full breakfasts and private meals in the courtyard or on the veranda for an extra cost. Want beer, rum, snacks, or mixers? Let us know when you book and we will make sure your accommodations are stocked to to your liking when you arrive. Oscar is also a very knowledgeable guide to ruins, caverns, and various workshops in the area and is happy to provide this service to you at a very reasonable rate. ... more   less

“The largest of the three units has a terrific veranda overlooking Taxco. Oscar has a small SUV and will pick you up when you arrive by bus. He also can drive you (for a fee) to the fabulous ancient site, Xochimilco, which is 75 minutes away.”
