We spent a week and had one of the most memorable trips imaginable. We were joined by some wonderful Mexican friends and their kids. The kids played volley ball and soccer within the walls. We cooked, laughed and and played. Oscar took us the waterfalls and swimming hole that is near by. Silvia made the best Chili Rellenos ever. Went...

My third stay at Casa de las Palmas and it won't be my last. My previous reviews of this B&B emphasise the warm welcome always given by the manager, Oscar, his wife, Silvia, and their sons. Nothing is too much trouble. Oscar will take you where you want to go while Silvia's cooking is a treat! This is still the...

This was our first visit to Taxco and it was a wonderful surprise. Casa de las Palmas is a gorgeous quiet oasis in the hear of the town.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Casa de las Palmas which is located a few streets up from the main square in Taxco. Nested among narrow, winding cobblestone streets, this B&B with high walls hides a beautiful garden inside. We had breakfast of coffee, fresh fruit juice, and sweet bread overlooking the cathedral in the main square. Our...

Have been traveling to Taxco each year for over fifteen years. What a pity I hadn't discovered this beautiful property sooner. It is truly a peaceful retreat in which to relax, either in the gorgeously maintained gardens or from one of two fabulous terraces overlooking the town. Only a couple of minutes walk downtown. Oscar is one site to see...

We found Las Palmas to be better than a hotel in Taxco. It's a very comfortable, large home with three independent units and a substantial garden. The host, Oscar, is a very helpful and speaks excellent English. There are three units; we took the two smaller ones at $58 and $78. There is daily room service and also a nice...

After a rushing, four day family road trip, arriving to this magnificent and romantic house in the heart of beautiful Taxco was comforting -to say the least- for everyone. The property, house and gardens are breathtaking, with the right combination of classical charm with first class amenities. My family of four, including two teenagers stayed at the main house, while...

Thanks so much! The place is back to its tranquil self after the internet cafe on the street above the property shut down. Casa de las Palmas is today quieter than nearly any other property.

I loved my stay at Casa de las Palmas in Taxco. It is a beautiful place, amazingly decorated, lots of attention to detail, it has a gorgeous garden with lots of flowers and a fountain, and great balconies to sit and contemplate the striking scenery. It’s within walking distance from the central plaza, great restaurants, shops, and sightseeing spots. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A tranquil oasis in the heart of Taxco, Casa de las Palmas offers Colonial charm and elegance just steps away from the main Zocolo and Taxco's famous silver and crafts shopping. An early 19th Century Main House and early 20th Century art studio turned antique-filled suite surrounding gorgeous private gardens, antiques from around the world, and panoramic views from multiple terraces and roof decks of the city are yours to enjoy, and a pampered alternative to hotels. The compound has hosted a veritable who's who of the "Lost Generation", being the long time home of artist Clinton King, whose first wife, Lady Duff-Twysden, was Hemingway's model for "Lady Brett" in "The Sun Also Rises". His second wife, Narcissa Swift, was memorialized in her friend Georgia O'Keefe's famous painting "Narcissa's Last Orchid". Rivera, Siquieros, Kahlo, and Faulkner are confirmed visitors and many others rumored to have enjoyed our ambiance. Library/office off master bedroom, carved stone fireplaces in living room and bedrooms, wireless internet access, flat screen TV's, cable, and extensive DVD library are here for you to enjoy. Oscar and Silvia, Casa de Las Palmas' attentive managers, are here to make your stay a memorable one. Fresh flowers on arrival, daily continental breakfast, a welcome bottle of tequila, and bottled water are included in your price. Silvia will prepare delicious full breakfasts and private meals in the courtyard or on the veranda for an extra cost. Want beer, rum, snacks, or mixers? Let us know when you book and we will make sure your accommodations are stocked to to your liking when you arrive. Oscar is also a very knowledgeable guide to ruins, caverns, and various workshops in the area and is happy to provide this service to you at a very reasonable rate. ... more   less

“It has several areas to sleep. We were a larger group but everyone had a place to call their own. The library is great.”

“The largest of the three units has a terrific veranda overlooking Taxco. Oscar has a small SUV and will pick you up when you arrive by bus. He also can drive you (for a fee) to the fabulous ancient site, Xochimilco, which is 75 minutes away.”
