We had a remarkable, enjoyable visit over 3 days. There is so much to love about Bottger. Steve and Kathy are cordial, gracious hosts who share a lot of information about New Mexico if you want to ask, or respect your quiet time if you'd rather. Breakfasts are scrumptious and healthy, the bed was superbly comfortable, the room was immaculate, Bottger gardens are lovely, and the location within walking distance to Old Town was just what we needed for our first Albuquerque visit. We hope to visit again in the future!

We arrived on a snowy and cold afternoon to a warm welcome. Our stay was comfortable and relaxing, in a room that reflected history, but had every comfort we could have wished. Clean, well run, smoke free, with really good breakfasts and tea/coffee and cookies available at all times, it is located right in Old Town, one block from the plaza. Our hosts were great, sharing advice and history of the house and the area, as well as looking up road conditions for us. We certainly hope to get back to the Bottger Mansion!

The Bottger is an Albuquerque gem. The owners are wonderful hosts and generously share information about the area. The Old Town location provides a unique experience. There are many shopping and dining opportunities. Our room was comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. We shared breakfast with a delightful couple from New York who were taking a day trip to Santa Fe by train. My favorite memory was enjoying the beautiful gardens. Kathy shares her flower seeds, and they will soon be blooming in my Minnesota garden.

This inn is a fabulous oasis in the heart of Old Town. The attention to detail is amazing - such as homemade sorbet on the fresh fruit at breakfast. Wonderful, knowledgeable hosts who provide a 5 star experience.

The Bottger Mansion is an absolutely delightful Bed and Breakfast. Architecturally very interesting and wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Route 66 room filled with great memorabelia . Loved the tin ceiling and the marble floor in the sunlit sitting room. And, breakfast was delicious. Location on the edge of Old Town is just perfect for a stroll.

My wife and I stayed two nights at Bottger Mansion in July 2015. The location is excellent since the mansion is within easy walking distance to Old Town, restaurants, and at least two museums. The mansion is also within easy driving distance of the botanical gardens, the zoo, additional museums (such as the Museum of Nuclear Science) and other places to visit. We also enjoyed the convenience if having parking places reserved for mansion guests. That was nice! When we arrived, I mentioned to Steve that we had just come from riding the narrow-gauge railroads in Durango, CO, and Chama, NM. So Steve told us about the restoration of Santa Fe No. 2926, a steam locomotive that pulled some of Santa Fe's most famous passenger trains in the 40s and 50s. We visited the restoration that Saturday, and were given a grand tour by one of the volunteers, who was a mechanical engineer who retired from the nuclear lab in Albuquerque and who was very interesting to talk to. We recommend that anyone who is interested in trains visit the 2926 restoration. It is amazing. As for our stay at the mansion, we enjoyed just relaxing in our room during the summer afternoon heat. The bed was comfortable, and the restroom was clean and spacious. It was a special room because it was Steve's train room! In fact, Steve said that the Lionel train displayed on a shelf in the room was his first model train. In addition, we thoroughly enjoyed breakfast in the courtyard. Steve and Kathy were perfect severs and hosts, and the breakfast was delicious. We had to leave early the next morning, so we missed the breakfast in the courtyard, but Steve prepared a breakfast-to-go for us, which we greatly appreciated. During our stay, we also enjoyed relaxing in the reading room, studying the historical photos and paintings in the mansion, and we enjoyed sitting in the glassed-in front porch with it's large windows and ample seating where guests could enjoy their breakfast on bad-wether days and where we relaxed and ate some of Steve and Kathy's chocolate brownies and oatmeal-and-raisin cookies. In conclusion, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the mansion. We recommend it to our family and friends, and we plan to stay at the Bottger Mansion when we return to Albuquerque to see what we missed and to see 2926 under steam.
