We stayed at the Hotel Chimayo last weekend. Had a great time. The hotel is in a perfect location. The room was very nice, clean, etc. The hotel is beautifully decorated with Santa Fe style art. The service and food at the restaurant was excellent. We will go back, and will recommend it to our friends (and TripAdvisor readers!)

I really was expecting better from a hotel near the plaza in Santa Fe. We came here with a friend on her recommendation and found ourselves disappointed but there were some good aspects of the hotel. First, the rooms were decent and mostly clean. There were clearly some issues with attention to detail but it was overall ok (except the...

The hotel is in a great location right off the main square of downtown Santa Fe. The Lobby is super pretty and decorated exactly the way you imagine Santa Fe would be. Dark wood, mexican tiles, and chile ristras. The staff is very nice and helpful. I believe the front desk guy was named Oscar. They have a resident 'fire...

Ate one breakfast and one dinner, both were excellent but the Huevos Rancherous was the best I've every had - the Chimayo red chilli made it. Service was second to none, even the chef came out to personally check on us. The room was spacious and I believe it was one of the smaller rooms. Great New Mexico furnishings and...

Thank you so much for this outstanding review! It sounds like Tia's Cocina was great addition to your stay and the Huevos Rancherous are truly not to be missed. Our red chile is one item on the menu that is completely authentic to the city and people of Chimayo as they come from straight from the city. Since our hotel...

Location, location, location. This hotel is less than a block from the Plaza and therefore very close to museums and other sights in that area. There is parking underneath the hotel for $14/day + tax. That seemed like a lot to me, but parking is expensive and limited in the area. With a "third night free" offer, the price is...

This is not a modern and sleek property, but it is comfortable and full of character and perfectly located. We found a great rate for a junior suite (with our dog!). Some might turn up their noses at the old woodwork and light fixtures and bathroom tiles, etc. but that's part of the charm. I'd give an "excellent" rating but...

The hotel has been updated and along with that comes a new name. We first knew it as Hotel Real. Now that it's updated the restaurant and bar are fantastic. As is the lobby and courtyard. What's not so great are the tiny and filthy elevators ad the extremely dark rooms and worn out furnishings. Not sure if the rooms...

The hotel had a pleasant atmosphere with a central courtyard. More fruit in the reception area would have made a difference. Having all the double beds on the second floor only available via staircase was a very peculiar, inconvenient feature. However, when the hotel was asked to give us a new room on the main floor, they were very attentive...
