Downtown Historic B&B

207 High Street NE , Albuquerque, NM 87102 USA (Show map)


The Spy House B&B is known for where the infamous David and Ruth Greenglass once lived and sold secret ATOMIC BOMB drawings to a Soviet Spy - Harry Gold. The 1907 Heritage House B&B is a beautifully-restored 100-year-old Victorian home. Both are located next door to each other in Downtown Albuquerque. It’s only 3 miles from the Airport and within walking distance of University of New Mexico (UNM), many great Downtown restaurants, the Convention Center, and several Hospitals. Every room is elegantly decorated and full of wonderful heirloom antiques. You also have full access to the beautiful backyard with lush grass, fountain with stream and a shady arbor made from 100 year old barn wood. “May any evening not end, but just begin when you come and stay with us.”

The Albuquerque Historic Bed and Breakfast may have a generic name but is it certainly an historic jewel. I was in two different rooms and each were exquisitely designed and detailed with period pieces and up to date electronics. What a special place in a quiet neighborhood of ABQ. The breakfast was unique, home made , and outstanding as well as healthy and tasty. The rooms were exceptionally clean, and the Innkerpers gracious and accommodating. Local restaraunts including the Lunch Box was absolutely fabulous as well as the Holy Cow and both accommodate a vegetarian palette in a luscious and filling way. I would recommend the HBB to anyone and would very much like to visit again.

Beautiful home, gracious hosts

This restored historic home was gorgeous. Perfect in every way, very welcoming and cozy. Near the downtown and university. The family that runs the place is kind and generous.

One night stay in historic setting. Steve and Kara were wonderful hosts full of interesting facts on the history of the Spy House. Breakfast was outstanding with something for everyone. My first experience in a Bed and Breakfast but certainly not the last.

Lovely B&B

I booked a room through just recently and was really happy with the wide range of choices that the site offered. What a wonderful enlightening stay I just experienced at the Downtown Historic B&B in beautiful Albuquerque. The innkeepers, Kara and Steve Grant and the entire staff at this B&B made me feel at home in their lovely historical homes. The Ivy Room was more beautiful than I could ever have imagined and my stay there was an amazing experience. I was blessed to meet Kara and Steve’s son, Ethan, who, along with two friends, Jeriah and Heaven, prayed for me and brought me greater sense of peace than I thought possible. These children were on their way into town to pray for anyone who needed it and I found it to be such a breath of fresh air that these young people share my love for God and a strong hope for wonderful changes in our future. I anticipate contacting you soon with news of the blessings that you prayed for me, you three are such sweet Angels from above. The yummy fresh organic breakfast that was served was straight from Steve and Kara’s own garden and hen house was such a treat and the goodies that were left out for their guests was another delicious, yet healthy, indulgence for the taste buds. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone who travels to the area; it was a wonderful experience. One that I plan to take advantage of again on my next trip to this lovely city; there are so many other rooms that I want to check out. If there are ghosts of the spy days past in these houses, I do believe the Innkeepers charm and worldviews have given them a renewed sense of peace. This is a must see place to visit.

We stayed 2 nights in the Spy House. The breakfast was wonderful, and the other guests were friendly. Kara was very accommodating with a special request.

We loved it!

We absolutely loved our nights stay. Steve is such a great host and cook. He even took our picture for us. Our first trip to Albuquerque was amazing. We are definitely staying here again!

Nice stay at Spy House

Two couples stayed at Spy House for one night before flying out the next day to go home. The rooms were as expected for a historic house - decorated in the style of that period, clean, comfortable mattresses. The Gold Room was a little musty smelling initially but that lasted maybe 20 min after opening up the room and window. Interesting to read the history of what went on. The kitchen in Spy House was stocked with beverages and cookies that we sampled when we arrived late afternoon and the breakfast was great- fresh fruit, cooked eggs, bacon, and french toast w/ syrup. Served promptly at 8:30am. Met the owner, this felt more like a business chat than a B&B experience if you are looking for a long chat, but that was fine for us fora 1 night stay. would recommend. Price was reasonable $139/rm plus tax for the full breakfast included.

Better than all others

I have been to several B&Bs in the state of New Mexico and other states. Even though the Downtown Historic B&B is in the city I live, it is the best B&B stay ever. The history of the home adds so much to the stay but Steve and Kara have maintained that history with furnishings and decor to give proper respect to that history. Steve and Kara were awesome hosts that created a unique experience to a B&B by combining the murder dinner theater. I live here and I want to go again and stay longer.
