Palacio Borghese is an utter delight. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The breakfast is wonderful, with a gorgeous fruit plate, homemade breads, fresh juices (including green and carrot juice) and wonderful Oaxacan chocolate or coffee. But what makes this hotel even more exceptional is its staff--simply nothing is too much trouble for them, and everything done with a huge smile and kindness. From being offered agua fresca ( watermelon, cucumber lime and others) every time you walk in, to a glass of wine before you head out in the evening, to the daily weather and activity presentation at breakfast (so charming!), you feel pampered and happy. This is the world famous Mexican hospitality at its best! I truly hope that I can return soon!

My partner and I spent a delightful long weekend in Oaxaca, staying at the Palacio Borghese which is smack dab in the middle of the old city, 2 minutes walk from the church of Santo Domingo and 5 minutes from the Zocalo. This is a beautifully restored hospital/convent that features large comfortable rooms with luxury toiletries (Bulgari!). But the building and location are only the beginning. What really stands out about this hotel is the service. They will literally accomodate any reasonable request, and do so with a smile. We have stayed at some of the finest hotels in the world (e.g Peninsula Hong Kong), and I can say that within the limits of its small size and location outside a major city, the Palacio Borghese meets that standard of service. A wonderful place to stay!

We loved our stay at Palacio Borghese. The hotel was very typical of Oaxaca which we loved and the room spacious, bed comfortable with beautiful linen. The management and staff were so obliging and nothing was a problem. Breakfast was home made and fresh. The location was great and we would recommend anyone to stay.

We arrived late on a Friday night and Marco was completely prepared for us and got us comfortable in minutes. Each day started out with coffee delivered to the terrace outside of our room and then a continental breakfast in the dining room. The hotel may be old, but it is well maintained and clean. Housekeeping was always prompt and invisible. The location is in the heart of Centro with tons of shopping and restaurants all within walking distance. Marco and Elias did a great job helping us and meeting our needs. Would definitely recommend the Palacio Borghese

This is a very nice quiet and comfortable boutique hotel. My 85 year old parents enjoyed their stay on a ground floor room. My wife and I were in a upstairs room. Both clean rooms met our needs with a comfortable bed and great air conditioning. You have a safe, desk, WiFi, fresh flowers and a good looking room to lay your head down after your day and night adventures. Continental breakfast of fresh fruit, breads, jelly and coffee or order off the breakfast menu for a fantastically delicious local breakfast meal. I was very impressed with the staff for they were everything you would expect and more. Serving breakfast with smiles and updating you on the weather and activities in the area while your sipping great coffee. The staff were also very helpful suggesting tours and airport transportation. You will love your stay!
