Historical Traveller Reviews of Casas de Suenos Old Town Country Inn Albuquerque Hotel
Breakfast in the Land of Enchantment.from feb1
The casita was clean, comfortable, quiet and relaxing. We had both a front and rear entrance. A nice convenience since we were able to street park our car just steps from our front door. The living and kitchen areas made us feel at home. The bedroom was a bit of a tight squeeze with the bed taking up much of the room. However this was easily overlooked since the bed was comfy and there was plenty of closet space.
The greatroom with the attached sunroom, where we ate breakfast every morning, overlooked the gardens which were quite beautiful. Breakfast was cooked to order by Lenny and was not only delicious but quite filling. Another nice touch for guests is use of the computer in the lobby.
Old Town is easily within walking distance and though touristy, is charming and shouldn't be missed since it is so close. We ate dinner one night at Little Anita's there. Although we thought the food itself was just ok, the margaritas were really good and the wait staff very friendly. If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to check out the Candy Lady candy shop also there in Old Town.
Another great place to check out is Santa Fe which is only about an hours drive from Albuquerque. Lots of great shopping! It certainly made for a nice day trip.
By all means, if you can visit Albuquerque during the Balloon Fiesta, then please do. It's not to be missed. The balloons are launched early each morning and it is quite a spectacular sight. If you're not a morning person, then don't miss the Night Glow events. The colors of the various illuminated balloons is simply awesome...WOW!
If your looking to stay at a unique property and away from a hotel atmosphere, then this bed & breakfast inn maybe for you. We really enjoyed our visit to the Land of Enchantment and at the equally enchanting Casas de Suenos. We didn't want to leave but hope to return soon for a longer stay at this cozy home away from home.

From the moment my wife walked in through the funky entrance she was hooked. My wife and daughter went immediately exploring the internal central coutyard rosegarden that all the casas back up to, while I checked in. Some lucky corporate traveler was ahead of me, and the poor guy didn't have any real confirmation, but the clerk de Suenos was very gracious in handling his check in. The clerk must have felt bad about my wait or something because he offered to upgrade me from a one-bedroom with sleeper sofa to a 2 bedroom. Ok! I wasn't mad, I was just grooving on the lobby, but now I'm even happier!
Previously over the phone I had asked about parking, since that is a problem at a lot of "in-city" boutique hotels. He told me not a problem, and boy was he right. We had our own personal driveway that was literally 4 steps away from our front door of our own little house. And what a house. A big living room, formal dining room 2 bedrooms all with cool, sturdy original funky SWestern furniture & original art. Newly refinished real hardwood floors. Our own Kitchen with modern appliances, including a real refrigerator, brand new space age gas stove, microwave, & coffee maker, and all the dishes and silverware. I was suddenly very jealous of the corporate traveler. What a great place for an extended stay!
I don't even remember looking at a menu for breakfast. The cook came out into the wonderful atrium like breakfast area and met me and asked what I wanted, he could cook anything, I asked about omelots, and he described many wonderful ingredients, and half-jokingly I said OK to all of that, and he replied cheerfully, "one kitchen sink omelot coming up!"
The location can't be beat, you are one block away from a big city park, a few blocks from old town. I am very noise sensitive, but the thick adobe walls must be a great sound insulator.
My only caution is that if you like traditional, box hotels, you may not care for this place. If you like funky, restored bungalows, in town, & when you consider the value of the breakfast, ability to cook dinner in your own kitchen, spread out in a living room, this is living. So we are kicking ourselves that we didn't book more nights at this lovely find.
Home Away from Home (without the work!)from A TripAdvisor Member
Breakfast is superb - a down to earth meal and very filling. The breakfast nook - surrounded by windows - brings in lots of sun and a fireplace keeps you even warmer in the winter. Tastefully decorated, the interior of the rooms are one of kind, each having a unique characteristic and amenity, including hardwood floors, poster beds and we had a nice Jacuzzi tub. Some of the rooms even have surround-sound, flat-screen television and fast-speed Internet. Located next to a golf course, privacy is at a premium, even though Albuquerque’s Old Town center is a walking distance away.
The price was right then, (February 2005), when it was probably still a best-kept secret.
What really made this place special was the quality of the staff - how they made us feel at home and treated us as if we had known them for years. Originally from New Orleans, the owners are well traveled, knowledgeable of the region, and always available to make your stay well worth a return trip. Whatever your reason is to stay in Albuquerque, Casa de Suenos is a dream haven come true!

Top Local Tips for Albuquerque
Little visited sites. Here are some Albq attractions that are less visited but well worth consideration: National Hispanic Cultural Center on South 4th; the Rio Grande Botanic Garden on North Rio Grande; the Native American Cultural Center on North 12th; the KiMo Theatre on Central Ave. right downtown...spectacularly renovated "Pueblo Deco" style. Have fun!
Acoma Pueblo (Sky City) An absolute MUST to visit if you are in the area. It is about 1 hour west of Albuquerque - in the middle of nowhere - but such a treat!
Petroglyph National Park and the Sandia Tramway Go to the park in the morning when it is cooler and bring lots of water. The rock carvings are AMAZING! Go to the visitor's area and they will direct you to the biggest concentration of petroglyphs. Do the Tramway in the evening - about 1/2 and hour before sunset. The view is superb all the time but so much better at this time of day.
