Taxco's best budget hotel is also it's hardest to find. To reach Casa Arellano walk down Calle del Arco (behind Santa Prisca), but before you get to El Arco look to your right and you'll see a market below you. Follow the stairs down into the market, weaving between the vendors and the customers, until you see a sign for the hotel. Once you pass through the gate you'll find a quiet haven during the day, a little guesthouse operated by a few old ladies who have more smiles than local knowledge. I arrived without a reservation and had my choice of rooms. Rooms are clean and basic, as are attached baths. For those looking to relax and read a book, there is a patio area with plenty of seating in the sun and shade. When I visited I was the only guest one night, and one of a handful the second. Be advised that you'll have to leave the keys at the front desk when you're not in your hotel room, so be cautious with your valuables.
