Excellent location super clean and best part they have valet parking witch a lot of hotels downtown do not offer. The free breakfast at El Correo was also a plus. Everything was very clean, and staff was very friendly.
I had the opportunity to travel around the world, but the view from the family suite was out of this world. The location is good but you will need to walk to get to the city center. The staff was very friendly, they helped my wife to coordinate a bday gift for me which was a great surprise. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room huge. Highly recommend this hotel for your next stay in SMA, I will come back for sure.
We got upgraded to a high floor - room 8. It affords a fantastic view of the city and is very spacious as it has a separate living room. The description says it has a heated swimming pool but it does NOT. Nor is there a gym. It’s centrally located just about 5-7 minutes from the center of town. The bus #8 or 9 run just outside the hotel and go further up to the Lookout if you want to save yourself the hike up. Local buses only cost 8 pesos. The drivers give change. There’s no refrigerator nor microwave oven anywhere so be prepared. Breakfast is served by going to one of their affiliated restaurants nearby. There are two. Better to go to the one just 1 block North of the hotel on Mesón street. It’s less crowded, gives much bigger portions and much faster service. Remember that room 8 offers the very best views.

I spent four nights on holiday at the Hotel El Palomar. Upon arrival, I was upgraded to a spacious, top-floor suite with unbelievable views of the city, a comfortable bed, and a sky-lit shower. Incredible, and incredible value for what I paid. Great shower pressure, super clean, temperature control, and, again, the view cannot be beat. My only complaint is that the noise from the restaurant upstairs is really terrible from about 1pm until late at night. The restaurant sat right above my sitting room, and they seem to constantly be moving chairs and tables, creating those sounds and making it really difficult to enjoy a peaceful siesta or evening watching the sunset. This isn't the hotel's fault (the restaurant is a complete, separate business), but there could be better coordination. It often sounded like someone at the restaurant was moving tables and chairs when no customers were there for completely superfluous reasons.…
This hotel was recommended to us as a boutique hotel, one of the best in San Miguel de Allende with magnificent views. We booked direct specifically for our stay for the Day of the Dead festivities. To start the views were superb both from suite and the terrace restaurant. The front of house, Christian was superb doing everything he could to make our stay enjoyable however there were some minor glitches with our suite such as broken lights, non flushing w.c. and a jacuzzi that unfortunately didn't work for the entirety of our stay. Being the top suite just below the terrace it was very noisy at night and early in the morning with chairs & tables being moved for breakfast.The restaurant / bar on the terrace is listed as an amenity of the hotel but you cannot charge food & beverage to your room and the service was very inconsistent in terms of what was included in your rate and the staff themselves, one member of staff refused to acknowledge English until the last day and he wanted tipping! The restaurant as well in comparison those in the surrounding area was expensive. It was a great shame in all as the hotel had huge potential, the majority off staff were superb but the facilities & set-up fell short of expectation. It didn't however detract to much from San Miguel de Allende which is a fantastic place....…
We had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and one large living room. The view of the city from the balcony was beautiful. It felt like home with the warm atmosphere and rustic furniture. It was perfect for a large family. The rooftop restaurant is very nice! It's a bit pricey, the kind of price you'd expect at an all inclusive hotel. But the location is perfect. Just a five minute walk to chocolate and churros!
We traveled with our 3 boys ages 10/7/2 and my mother. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite. It was very big and spacious, we chose this hotel because we were driving and looking for a hotel with parking. This had a perfect location it was walking distance to the main plaza. The room was very clean, we didn't have any issue with noise, maybe because we were traveling during the week. We were very pleased with the stay had 2 big bathrooms enough for our family of 6. Would highly recommend.
This hotel is perfectly located and is gorgeous. No pool, but the the views are amazing and amazing staff! The rooftop restaurant is delicious and well priced. Each room is different and is special in its own way.
I spent 3 days in San Miguel De Allende with my family and we stayed at the wonderful Palomar boutique hotel. The location is perfectly central, by slightly away from the village center turmoil. Rooms are beautifully decorated respecting the character of the old mansion. Service is excellent and the sky’s roof bar and restaurant has a breathtaking view over all San Miguel de Allende. I definitely give a 10 to this great place.
Dining at El Palomar should have been a 4-5 star experience but was only 3 stars. It is a beautiful setting with an amazing roof top view of the city but the dining experience was only average. My wife and I shared French Onion soup, a beet salad, and a roasted chicken breast, all of which lacked flavor. The chicken breast was well over cooked and dry. Service was fair and should have been more attentive for our party of 8 celebrating a birthday. The view is definitely worth a visit, and the next time we go we will just have drinks.
