About this property

Marfa House El Balcon, in the Heart of Marfa With Direct Balcony Access

Adults-only aparthotel in Marfa
El Balcon is a one bedroom/one bath studio apartment suitable for one or two persons located on the second floor of the Marfa House, an historic structure originally built as a railroad hotel in 1890 and lovingly restored over a 14-year period to preserve its old west charm and equip it with modern amenities. El Balcon has a private entrance from the second floor balcony of Marfa House and features premium bedding (which can be configured as a king-sized bed or two twin beds, at the guests' option), an en suite bathroom with shower, a seating nook with reading light, and a coffee station; and a second chair. Comfortable seating is also available right outside on the Marfa House balcony, where you can relax and peruse the goings on in central Marfa while sipping your favorite beverage. El Balcon guests also have access to the other Marfa House common areas open to all guests: the gallery sitting area, and the atrium at the rear, which features a fire pit and large screen television. The City of Marfa charges a local occupancy tax of seven percent, in addition to the state occupancy tax of six percent. We are registered with the City as lodging No. S-105.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this aparthotel offer coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to balconies or patios. Beds feature premium bedding. Bathrooms include bathtubs or showers and hair dryers.

5/5 Excellent

Loved it!
We had a great stay. The rooms and property were very clean, the common areas cozy and inviting, and the check in/out process is zero contact and much appreciated these days :)

5/5 Excellent

Super clean and nicely decorated
We had a very nice stay here. Our concern regarding cleaning was immediately forgotten when we walked in. You could tell it everything had been cleaned very well. The room is small if you are 6'4 like my husband but we didn't spend much time in the room since there was a very nice balcony to sit on when not sleeping. There is a train that could go past the Marfa House in the middle of the night but it didn't bother us. The bed is comfortable and there is a wide selection of pillows. Nice towels, hair dryer, coffee supplies and shampoo. The only thing missing is a small fridge since it is hot there in the summer. We had a cooler so we could have hauled it up the stairs and left it on the balcony but chose to leave it in the car. Overall, a nice place.
