  • Todo muy bien. El staff siempre fue súper amable desde el principio. Quizá lo único malo…Jul. 14, 2020

Clean and central. Central location comes with a price. Live music from adjacent restaurants carries down the slope.

Coming home
Once again, arriving for a stay at the Hotel Santa Prisca was like coming home. I am so lucky to have found this hotel decades ago, and it improves over time by maintaining such high standards of hospitality, cleanliness, and service. It says a lot, I believe, that so many staff have been there for a long time. The room, simple but with everything a traveler could need, serves well during visits to the charming town, and the beautiful patio, full of gorgeous trees and flowers, is the ideal retreat, one I often think about when not in Taxco. I wouldn’t trade it for any of the newer and pricier places, which I have tried, much to my disappointment. Hotel Santa Prisca will be my home in Taxco for as long as I am fortunate enough to make the trip.

Good base for exploring an interesting little city
A traditional hotel, close to the cathedral and main square in the heart of Taxco. The hotel provides a relatively quiet haven from the bustle of the main city. I really enjoyed visiting Taxco. It took three hours to reach it by a good quality coach from Mexico City. It's worth staying for a couple of nights, as there is plenty to do, exploring the narrow streets with their colonial architecture and using a taxi to visit El Cristo Panoramico statue, where you will experience great views of the city. Taxis are cheap and plentiful in the city and the old VW Beetles are full of character. There's also the opportunity to refresh your self or dine in one of several rooftop restaurants and shop for silver gifts in the numerous shops and arcades. Santa Prisca Hotel is a good base for exploring all the delights of this little city. I received a good welcome and the hosts were very happy to look after my bags on check-out day. Apart from the drawback that you can only use wi-fi in the reception areas, rather than your room, I would certainly recommend using this hotel as your base.

The hotel is very charming and the staff is very nice and helpful. The hotel has its own parking lot which is great in Taxco were strees are narrow and having a car is more of a hustle. I recommend everyone to stay here just a couple of minutes walk from the main square.

Enjoyable place in a great location.
Beautiful historic building, just one block away from the central plaza. Plenty of food and entertainment options around. Clean and well kept. We enjoyed the patio and the rooftop terrace with an amazing view of the city.

Great location and very convenient parking. Amazing view from the room and rooftop terrace. Room was pretty old and bathroom very old and a bit grungy.

A hotel that defines hospitality
I have loved this hotel since finding it about twenty years ago. Yes, it is very basic, but it has everything I could ever want in a hotel and more: clean, simple but charming rooms with a terrace with a stunning view, ideal location in a beguiling town, great service, decent Wi-Fi in the beautiful, always blooming patio, loads of purified water (a must, and many Mexican hotels—-even the “fancy” ones—-give only a couple of smallish bottles), and the kindest people who truly define hospitality. I have stayed almost yearly, and they always remember me and make sure I have all I need. Last year, they were booked for one of the nights I wanted to visit Taxco, so I went to another, newer hotel that gets rave reviews—-except from me. Ugh. When I returned to the Hotel Santa Prisca this year, it was like returning a welcoming home. I have been lucky to do a bit of world traveling over the years, and at times I even stayed at the four-star places while on business, but the Hotel Santa Prisca ranks among the best I have found. I look forward to returning, enshallah.

Lovely Mexican feel to the place, wonderfully located in the centre of things yet exceptionally quiet. Great library with exceptional view to the Cathedral, and pleasant garden sitting area too. Would recommend this place to others.
