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.”

This was the second time I stayed at the Historic Downtown B&B in Albuquerque. I was in town on business. As such, I had to leave early in the morning to make my appointments. Kara & Steve had items laid out and available to me in the kitchen even though I couldn't make the standard breakfast time that they normally serve breakfast. They had fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, scones, juices, coffee, sodas, and water available. I also had a shipment sent to their location for business. They very kindly received that package and placed it in my room for me. Both houses are a perfect blend (for me) between old and new. Original wood floors, antique door handles, and period furniture were successfully mixed with flat screen TVs, high speed WiFi, and key-less door locks (exterior and interior - no keys to lose!). Plus I cannot say enough about the wonderful claw foot and high-backed bath tub. I soaked in it almost every night. I have met Kara and Steve. They are so nice and you can tell they love what they do. They take pride in their properties and spoil their guests with small touches (like M&Ms in the hallways, handcrafted clay mugs, and gorgeous china plates/bowls ready for everyday use). The backyard is a peaceful and beautiful place to be. I plan to book with them for all of my future trips to Albuquerque (even if I go on pleasure)! I literally can't say enough about this property! Go and enjoy!

This must be the grandest B & B in Albuquerque We stayed in the Ivy room in the historic house and it was beautiful, it was a suite with its own private (massive) balcony, the bed was to die for and was very comfortable. We met the owner Steve when we checked in, he was very personable, he showed us round and told us where everything was. He made us feel very welcome. We had access to a big kitchen with a very large fridge that was full of soft drinks and water for our use whilst we were there, there was also lots of little treats dotted around the house, cookies, chocolates and biscuits. We were the only ones to check in on the day we were there so we had the full run of the house which was very nice. Breakfast was a gourmet breakfast with traditional Mexican food we had neither seen or eaten before but it was delicious. The setting in the Famous Spy House was in a beautiful dining room a million miles away from standard american hotels. I Would highly recommend staying In this beautiful B & B if you get the chance, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I met for an impromtu romantic evening. Accomodations were made for our stay online and over the phone. Everything came together seamlessly. Our hostess was great. We were made to feel welcomed and had a memorable stay.

Amazing place. We were fortunate in being the only guests on the night we stayed so we had the whole of the beautiful house to ourselves. Lovely period property, furnished to the time but with all the modern conveniences. We loved the swing-seat and rocker on the front porch, great for chilling out with a beer. Gorgeous dining room that I wish we had taken greater advantage of. Huge king sized bed and sofa bed that comfortably accommodated our party of 3. the bathrooms very fitted out with roll top baths - again we were not there long enough to take advantage of these. A great breakfast was served next door, which looked equally intriguing and inviting.I would thoroughly recommend this place.

My stay here was very peaceful. I was the only guest at the two homes during my stay here. Lindsey went out of her way to make wonderful breakfast meals although I was a single guest. Lindsey was very friendly and made my visit here a positive experience. I stayed in the Heritage House Secret Garden Room for 2 nights. It was very clean. I highly recommend this place.

My husband and I spent a few days in Albuquerque and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Downtown Historic B&B. Lindsay made sure that we had everything we needed and was so gracious. Since we would not be able to be at breakfast every morning she put together a nice continental breakfast for us. Our room was lovely and we enjoyed the deck off of our room. The grounds of the inn were nice as well. We would recommend this place to our family and friends and if we come to Albuquerque again we would definitely stay again.

My parents paid for us to stay here for our Anniversary. We had stayed here previously right after we got married on our way to our honeymoon. We love the rooms and the food is amazing! It is the best place to stay in Albuquerque!

I stayed here on a co-workers recommendation for a 3 day meeting in Albuquerque. So much better than staying at one of the bland corporate hotels!. Thank you!

We stayed at Downtown Historic B&B during a quick trip to ABQ! The Gold Room was beautiful as was the rest of the house. The the service from Lindsey was awesome. She was so helpful from making accomodations for us to check in and answering all of our questions. The warm breakfast was amazing and it was wonderful to talk with the other guest staying over. We would defintely stay here again, and actually found that we wished we would have had more time to just relax and enjoy the room and accomodations. PS thank you for the information of restaurants and activites in the area. We enjoyed NYPD Pizza and went on the Old Town ghost tour which really added to the fun of our trip!
