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.


Taos, New Mexico Activities

Burritos from a roadside stand, green-chili cheeseburgers, world-class cuisine—they can all be found among the 50+ Taos, New Mexico restaurants. Many eateries in Taos also showcase live music from Celtic to flamenco, jazz to blues. You’re never far from the art that is Taos, evidenced by an ever-changing parade of local art that hangs in many restaurants. Our hotel staff can make reservations and recommend some of the great Taos restaurants!
