About

Experience old Santa Fe charm in this 200 year-old adobe B&B Inn located in the historic downtown district just a few minutes walk from the Plaza, Canyon Road, and many museums and shops. From our delicious full breakfasts and home-baked cookies and cakes at tea-time, to our authentic Southwestern ambiance, we provide a relaxed and homey atmosphere for you and your friends and family to enjoy. Our guests tell us they love our hospitality, food, location, and great value. Conde Nasts' Traveler magazine calls El Paradero the "lodging deal of Santa Fe." "Location was perfect - just right for a relaxing walk (short) to the heart of downtown, but away from the noise on a quiet side street. Terrific value with hospitality, location, and comfort all on the top of the list!" - Genevieve D, Ft. Walton Beach, FL

My go-to B&B

4.6 on April 19, 2018

I’ve stayed at El Paradero several times. I know Santa Fe offers plenty of nice hotels and other types of lodging, but I choose this one because of the setting near downtown, the beautiful rooms and the wonderful service, including a delicious hot breakfast.

Innkeeper Response

El Paradero B&B

3.8 on March 19, 2018

Very quaint, clean B&B. The staff are very friendly and they took the time to show us the property, amenities and to answer any questions we had. The room did smell very strong of smoke (campfire), as the previous guest must have lit a fire and allowed the room to become smoky. The food was excellent and our stay was very nice.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your review, we will look into this and make sure the room is aired out between guests, when a guest has had a smoky fire. We are also going to install an Ozonator, which should really help. Paul / Sue Owners

Quaint B&B

4.2 on March 09, 2018

The room was very nice, however, the fireplace had been used before our stay and it smelled very strong the entire day and night. Needed to be aired out. Staff was friendly and great location.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your review. Sorry for the fireplace smell. We did relocate you to another room, an upgrade, so we hope you were happy there! We will make sure to air out the room between guests when the fireplace has been used. We are also getting an Ozonator, which should really help. Paul / Sue owners

Favorite B&B Ever!

5 on February 19, 2018

El Paradero is a cozy, welcoming inn, with Southwestern decor. We have stayed twice and truly enjoyed both. Their breakfasts are to die for also. We have recommended EParadero to friends and the loved it too. It’s the place we will ever stay in Santa Fe and we plan to visit frequently! Go there! It’s a gem from which you can walk to many places in minutes including the plaza and canyon road.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your wonderful review! We look forward to your return visit!

Comfortable Getaway

We enjoy the small size of this place and the personal interaction with office and cooking/cleaning staff. It has a Southwest vibe with decor and breakfast. It's walking distance to downtown shopping and sightseeing as well.
