Casa Arellano: Market Guesthouse

Taxco's best budget hotel is also it's hardest to find. To reach Casa Arellano walk down Calle del Arco (behind Santa Prisca), but before you get to El Arco look to your right and you'll see a market below you. Follow the stairs down into the market, weaving between the vendors and the customers, until you see a sign for the hotel. Once you pass through the gate you'll find a quiet haven during the day, a little guesthouse operated by a few old ladies who have more smiles than local knowledge. I arrived without a reservation and had my choice of rooms. Rooms are clean and basic, as are attached baths. For those looking to relax and read a book, there is a patio area with plenty of seating in the sun and shade. When I visited I was the only guest one night, and one of a handful the second. Be advised that you'll have to leave the keys at the front desk when you're not in your hotel room, so be cautious with your valuables.

HOSTAL JOAN SEBASTIAN: A small family hostal

This hostal used to be the home of a famous Latin singer - Joan Sebastian.

The man who runs it used to be the mayor of Taxco, and has many stories as well as photos with various dignitaries from across North America. This certainly is a place with character as well as spotless rooms and great location

Mayan heaven: A nice rental Condo in Taxco

WE HAVE STAYED IN TAXCO MANY TIMES AND HAVE WITNESSED THE CHANGES AND PRICE INCREASES. WE STILL LIKE POSADA De La Mision and Monte Taxco although Hotels; Santa Prisca, Melendez,Victoria, Loma Linda and De La Borda all have their own charm. We did rent a condo for a week last NOVEMBER 06 and found it to suit our needs better, so we plan going back. They have a web site There are many good restuarants in Taxco but we specially liked Tia Cala in the Corner of the Zocalo excellent food.

This place is on the top of a mountain and is located on a resort property with spectacular views, there is tennis, a 9 hole golf course, swimming pools and a spa. If you like jogging -we do- this is the place to go, it is almost 7000 ft high. Although it is remote there is a luxury hotel within the grounds. We werent organised the first day or two, and had to trip down to Taxco a number of times for milk, sugar, salt etc. The place is fully equipped we should have stocked up on day one, next time we will.
