I loved staying at the family run Hotel El Fuerte. Walking into the hacienda every time is a treat as you can see art, and furniture that Silvia has collected for decades from all over Mexico. If you are an art lover, this will not disappoint. In fact, I found it much more interesting and high quality than the museum right next door.They even have a fascinating Pancho Villa room with all sorts of old photos that must be quite rare.
As a woman traveling alone, I also feel very comfortable with the safety aspect of the hacienda and court room set up.. the rooms are inside, not on the street and someone stays up all night to make sure if we need anything they are there.
Prices on the rooms were very reasonable, and I found the bed in my room(31) to be quite large and comfortable..
I was on my way to Copper Canyon during my visit, and was really touched when Silvia told me Mi Casa Su Casa.. I felt she really meant it and I was enclosed in the family fold.
If I go back to El Fuerte, I would not hesitate to return here.More
