Hotel la Fonda de Taos is perfectly located on the Plaza in the historic center of Taos. You can walk to all the major sites and traffic (as opposed to the highway strip where most of the other hotels are located). Our room was a decent size and very comfortably furnished with a fully equipped bathroom and excellent shower. The hotel is quiet, with very nice common areas and a friendly staff. Parking is available and right behind the hotel. We would definitely recommend it.
