Loved the high quality standards of the room/suite. We don't ever go to a luxury hotel, because we don't like how it seems to separate you from your destination. Neither do we ever take advantage of the luxury amenities, but Palacio Borghese was perfect. The room was spotless, and incredibly beautifull. Loved the breakfast with an abundance of fresh fruit,...

Stayed two nights the week before Easter - this is a beautiful old building with only a few rooms/suites but the service was impeccable and there was always someone available to look after you. With the main cathedral square only a couple of blocks away this hotel is ideally located as it is really close to, but not right in... More

The title of my review says it all! You go out the front door and everything is in walking distance. All of the staff were so courteous and accommodating. I asked the first morning if they had some peanut butter which they did not. The next day at breakfast they brought out a bowl of peanut butter thanks to the... More

This hotel is perfectly located, just down the road from the Santo Domingo church. The cab ride into town from the airport was 130 pesos (for a shared ride, it was around 200 for your own cab). The hotel was exactly what we look for in a boutique hotel and there were lots of positives - * The property is... More

We stayed 4 nights at Palacio Borghese. For the price and previous reviews we really thought the hotel would be around 5 stars, I would say it was more like 3.5. It was somewhat disappointing. The location of the hotel was the best. Staff was very nice and helpful. They assisted with what they could and gave us good recommendations... More

Dear GP We appreciate all your comments, effectively when you got to your room the first day the air conditioning worked very well, so there was no problem at your first night. Second night at about 9 pm there was a blackout in the whole town, that's why the air conditioning got broken. You reported this to the front desk... More
