We spent 3 days in Oaxaca on a spur-of-the-moment decision, and kind of randomly picked this place. We loved it, mainly it was the staff. They were so attentive and friendly. They helped us buy plane tickets back to Puerto Escondido when we realized another 7-hour bus ride was not what we wanted to do. They were always friendly and... More

This property is amazing. Our room was very well appointed, cool, comfortable, and cozy. The staff was eager to please and helped ensure we had a memorable experience. We booked a private day trip through the hotel and were blown away with the experience. Our guide was an actual archeologist who took us on a journey of a lifetime. She... More

We stayed in the Venezia room. It was absolutely beautiful, boasting high ceilings, tasteful decor, a spacious bathroom, a shower with plenty of hot water and a strong flow, and air conditioning. The hotel is well situated in the heart of Oaxaca, but its thick walls provide a quite and restful atmosphere. The staff members were very helpful, providing us... More

We absolutely loved Palacio Borghese. It was the first stop on our honeymoon tour of Oaxaca, and we hated to leave so much we actually planned one more night on the back-end of our trip. The lobby and rooms were elegant and chic -- we felt like royalty -- and the location is great. Any which way you want to... More

My sister in law and I just spent a week in Oaxaca taking Spanish classes. We LOVED this hotel. Much of the credit belongs to the staff. Christina, Adrid, and Francisco were all wonderful. They were exceedingly warm and friendly, took care of every single little need and desire. In addition, they were delightful about speaking Spanish with us. The... More

We arrived late one night and were warmly greeted and shown to our lovely room, Frienze. The next morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, coffee, toast, and what the cook calls "pudding"; but I would call it breakfast cake. What ever----it is very good. if you want more than this you pay a supplement. The... More

I do love writing these reviews because I too find them soooooo helpful. Why we liked palacio: safe. Superb attentive service. Quiet. We stayed in the Roma suite in the back. This one very high ceilings and good light from tiny central courtyard. Bed and linen and bath high quality. Another fact is that it is a boutique hotel with... More

Having never been to Mexico before and traveling with our two daughters, I wanted to find a safe place to stay. Hotel Borghese provides excellent security in addition to impeccable service, outstanding food, and beautiful, air-conditioned rooms. It is walking distance to the Zocalo and the city center. Luis, Adrid, and Christina, promptly took care of arranging anything we needed,... More

We enjoyed our first-time visit to your beautiful city and hotel. The staff is superb and should be commended. The service was personalized; everything from arranging tours, sightseeing suggestions, and special food requests. Thank you to all for making a beautiful place extra special.

We were greeted at the airport promptly, professionally and warmly and then again enthusiastically at the hotel with Oaxacan hot chocolate and coffee. Our sumptuous room was made more so with great linens and hermes toiletries. Breakfast was a delight of home-baking, fresh fruit and an array of yummy dishes. The staff could not do enough for us, going out... More
