Built in the late 1800s for the sons of Vicente Solis Leon, this Venetian-inspired townhouse serves as an intimate hotel with antique furniture and colorful tile floors just four blocks from the main square. Some find this inn private and romantic, while others may find it a bit too homey and quiet for their liking. Individually decorated rooms have tile sinks and folk-art furniture. The cenote-like pool is surrounded by ferns, and the light-filled rooftop room, up four-dozen
steps, has an excellent city view from its oversize balcony. A simple breakfast of coffee, bread, fresh fruit, and juice is served in a shaded courtyard. Located on the rooftop terrace, La Taberna serves cocktails and light fare and is open to the public.
