This is a boutique hotel close to the sights of Oaxaca. The staff are friendly and attentive. The rooms are a good size, tastefully decorated, with superior sheets and towels. Try for a room on the third floor (roof). They are large and there is a nice view across the rooftops. The hotel is convenient for many of the "must... More

This is an amazing hotel. We arrived to a very friendly staff. Our luggage was brought up to our rooms for us. Josue was wonderful. Every day he checked on us to see how our travels were going, if we needed anything, and would print maps for us when we asked about a certain place we wanted to visit. Christina... More

This is my second time in Oaxaca and this hotel far exceeded our expectations. It is so beautiful and the staff is the best. We wanted something very close to the center, and to be in a hotel that had real history and beauty. Sometimes on websites photos can make a place seem better than it is, but in this... More

Couldn't be in a better location , delicious breakfast, nice courtyard, helpful Syrah, useful sheet of recommendations, wonderful foodie town - only thing I would say is that we stayed in Verona and it didn't have any windows so felt a bit dark - otherwise great experience

Spent 4 nights at the Palacio Borghese and would thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone who appreciates small boutique hotels with a very attentive staff. My room faced the street and was a bit small -- but the bed was quite comfortable and the room was quiet. The staff was warm and helpful. I'd gladly stay here again!

My husband and I stayed at the Palacio Borghese over Thanksgiving week in 2014. We were completely charmed by the small size of the hotel (six rooms) and the elegant details in the common area and the rooms. There could not be a more central location for sightseeing and restaurants. Most importantly, Faustino and the other members of the staff... More

This is a great choice in Oaxaca - a few steps from the nicest part of the old town, the Palacio is a lovely old Spanish-style mansion with an elegant covered courtyard and a small selection of pretty rooms. The emphasis is on elegance and it's no surprise that it's a popular choice for weddings. The staff are welcoming and... More

We just spent a lovely week here, and would recommend it highly. The location and the staff are excellent.

I had a lovely stay at the Palacio Borghese, a beautifully designed small hotel in central Oaxaca. As others have mentioned, the staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful but never intrusive.
