This is one of the friendliest places I've ever stayed. The building itself is beautiful and comfortable and I seriously don't think I've ever been treated better by a staff anywhere I've ever stayed. The breakfast and kitchen are quite nice and the staff was really helpful with info about the city. Stay here.

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay in this amazing hotel. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable; the location is ideal - just steps away from the Cathedral Santo Domingo and botanical gardens; the hotel is laid out and decorated like an Italian villa, and the decor is extremely lovely and charming. The room was decorated in the same fashion and had a comfortable bed and a big bathroom , plus a shaded shared terrace with tables and couches right outside the door. Definitely recommend!

This hotel was the cheapest hotel I have ever been to and they are advertising it as a luxury experience and charging customers as a luxury hotel. First of all, we were given a room on the roof that was not even part of the palace, it was a cheap room that was added to the building later, with a low ceiling and a bath that would not even drain water. ( it was like a tent on top of the building). The day after we spend an hour of our short stay there complaining, telling them what we reserved had a different description on the website and they Agreed to change our room. In the new room, my husband found a cockroach, and like the one in the previous room, the water was not draining in the bath or Sink. On the hotel's website, They specifically advertised that every room has Hermes toiletry; This is the level of luxury they are advertising which is not true, there was not a single piece of Hermes toiletry anywhere. They put one shampoo on two of us each day. I have long hair, and when I asked for an extra shampoo they were questioning my request. Same with laundry bag, they had trash bags instead of laundry bags and I have been questioned for asking for a second one! We only got one bottle of water each day and there was not even a tea or coffee in the room. The breakfast was a served small plate of fruit and a coffee with a small bread. Everything else was by order and at extra charge. This breakfast was served after 9:00, which is very late for any hotel especially if you are in Oaxaca and need to leave your hotel early in the morning in order to get to archeological sites. There was a young gentleman, who was the receptionist, the server, and the concierge desk. Long story, short, this hotel has been misrepresented and miss advertised by the host, be careful!

Respectable guest Flaneur. First of all we appreciate the time you took to make your comments, all comments help us to improve, however I want to clarify some points that you mention: 1.- You reserved a standard room, which corresponds to the photos that are shown on the booking web page in which you reserved and indeed the one that you got is located in the terrace area, of your stay of 3 nights, you stayed 1 night in that room. 2.- The next day during breakfast you requested an upgrade, and because we had availability, it was granted for 2 more nights despite the fact that the price between a standard room and a luxury room is practically double the price. 3.- We are sorry that during your stay you did not inform us that you found a bug, a situation that seems strange to us because precisely two days before your arrival the entire hotel had been fumigated, it is a pity that you did not let us know to check the bug that mention found. 4.- Regarding the amenities, the kit consists of Shampoo, conditioner and cream is from the famous Bulgari brand, unfortunately due to the pandemic the Hermes product is not available in Mexico, so we had to opt for a similar brand, everyone knows that Bulgari products are of excellent quality, and indeed for 2 days he asked for an extra kit mentioning that they had not put it in his room and the staff to avoid any problem gave it to him, on the third day a photo of the kit of amenities was taken that was left in his room to check that he had a daily kit, unfortunately some guests, when it is a good brand, request an extra kit of amenities in order to take them home. 5.- Regarding the continental breakfast included, it consists of a hot drink that can be coffee, tea or chocolate, a fruit plate, a juice of your choice and homemade bread and rolls with homemade jams, apart from that there is an extra menu for guests who want to have something else and said menu has an affordable cost. Breakfast hours are from 8:00 in the morning and not at 9:00 as you mentioned. 6.- The afternoon before your departure we had a setback due to the discussion that you had in the room and that some frightened guests asked us what was happening, we tried to explain the situation as best we could, but it was really embarrassing for us everything what happened. 7.- Through booking we received a request from you requesting a refund for one night, they were told that it was not possible because in addition to having given them the upgrade to a luxury room, despite having given them a kit of extra amenities and despite the loud discussion you had in your room that made a bad impression on other guests, you still asked for a refund of one night. For all of the above, your request did not seem fair to us, we hope that in the future you will find a hotel to your complete satisfaction. With all my respect to you. Sincerely Lic.J.Manuel Lòpez Ramos

Close to the hustle and bustle of downtown, but far from the noise, this serene location was calming and quiet compared to our prior accommodation and we were grateful for the hospitality and attention of the staff, who could not have been nicer. The room itself was gorgeous with 20 foot ceilings and a full length soaking tub. Rooftop for wonderful views of the city.

I loved my six night stay at Palacio Borghese. My room was spacious and comfortable, with excellent bedding and absolutely terrific pillows - a rare thing! I had a bit of street noise at night, but that was compensated by the excellent views of the city and the Church of Santo Domingo. The staff was terrific! They always offered flavored waters at the end of the day, gave us clear directions to places, helped us with planning and always greeted us warmly and personally. Breakfast was super tasty and pleasant in the lovely courtyard. The hotel is extremely well located in walking distance to all markets, churches, shopping and restaurants. It was an excellent stay!!

We just spent 6 nights at Palacio Borghese and we couldn’t have felt more comfortable. Wonderful, warm staff, beautiful old architectural building! The hotel is centrally located in beautiful Oaxaca and we would happily return for a second visit. We couldn’t recommend the hotel and the staff more highly.

We spent more than two weeks at the Hotel Palacio Borghese and felt extremely well supported and cared for. It's a former convent, and retains that peaceful and intimate sense. With only eight guest rooms, the staff is very attentive and hospitable. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The services provided were outstanding. They suggested activities and helped us hire drivers, guides and interpreters when needed. By the end of our stay we felt like part of the family. Muchissimas gracias, Hotel Palacio Borghese! We really hope to stay there and visit beautiful Oaxaca again. Breakfasts and fresh juices served daily were very delicious -- try the specialities! Oaxaca has a young population, with many students and young tourists, and together with that a lively nightlife, especially on weekends. The hotel is located very centrally, which is wonderfully convenient. But on weekend nights we could hear the bass from some nearby bars or clubs until late. Our sense was that this would be the case anywhere in central Oaxaca -- if you're a light sleeper, take ear plugs. The rest of the week it was peaceful.

We highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Oaxaca. It’s centrally located, only a block from the Santo Domingo Cathedral and a few blocks from the Zocalo. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating, especially Henry at the front desk! The inside of the hotel is beautiful. It feels authentic and unique, with only eight rooms. It has a lovely sunbathing area on the roof with a gorgeous view of the city. We absolutely loved our stay!
