“Beautiful rooms, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We stayed in the Venezia room. It was absolutely beautiful, boasting high ceilings, tasteful decor, a spacious bathroom, a shower with plenty of hot water and a strong flow, and air conditioning. The hotel is well situated in the heart of Oaxaca, but its thick walls provide a quite and restful atmosphere. The staff members were very helpful, providing us advice on day trips and guides as well as making sure we were well taken care of. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the interior rather than the street are quieter.

We absolutely loved Palacio Borghese. It was the first stop on our honeymoon tour of Oaxaca, and we hated to leave so much we actually planned one more night on the back-end of our trip. The lobby and rooms were elegant and chic -- we felt like royalty -- and the location is great. Any which way you want to walk when you step out of the hotel, you get to see some of the best parts of the city, and it's very close to the zocalo. The staff was especially friendly and helpful, particularly with regard to our out-of-town transportation. They even went as far as to book a high-quality van ride for us to the beach we were headed to next, and it came right up to the front door to pick us up! We were very impressed and would highly recommend Hotel Palacio Borghese.

My sister in law and I just spent a week in Oaxaca taking Spanish classes. We LOVED this hotel. Much of the credit belongs to the staff. Christina, Adrid, and Francisco were all wonderful. They were exceedingly warm and friendly, took care of every single little need and desire. In addition, they were delightful about speaking Spanish with us.
The included breakfast was very good. The bread pudding was fantastic. I ordered additional breakfast a couple days and those were very good, as well.
The room and bathroom were both beautiful and very well equipped. Comfortable beds, great linens, etc. Both the wifi and the air-conditioning worked well. The location is fabulous. We walked to everything and nothing was far.
There were big hugs all around when we left. We really hated to leave our new friends.

We arrived late one night and were warmly greeted and shown to our lovely room, Frienze. The next morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, coffee, toast, and what the cook calls "pudding"; but I would call it breakfast cake. What ever----it is very good. if you want more than this you pay a supplement. The fried eggs on a tortilla with chilies is wonderful, and reasonably priced. Not to be missed is the jugo verde or green juice, a combination of fruits and vegetables. One sip will make you feel healthier.

Our visit lasted a week. During this time our rooms were kept tidy and clean by the excellent staff. All the staff were helpful. I do question the 600 pesos charge for transportation from the airport when the cost of a taxi is only 250 pesos. Every thing else is a good value. This was not.

Room Tip: We loved our room on the first floor in the rear. All the rooms look lovely.

I do love writing these reviews because I too find them soooooo helpful. Why we liked palacio: safe. Superb attentive service. Quiet. We stayed in the Roma suite in the back. This one very high ceilings and good light from tiny central courtyard. Bed and linen and bath high quality. Another fact is that it is a boutique hotel with only six suites. Kind of like a private villa. Perfect location to fantastic restaurants and near santo Domingo cathedral and stroll to the zocalo. Do take taxi to Monte Alban. Wonderful site. People in this city are kind, polite, friendly. Shopping also wonderful from inexpensive to high end side of art and crafts/rugs etc. A+ Palacio Borghese.

Muy estimado Huèsped.
Que gran placer nos ha dado a todo el personal del Palacio sus amables comentarios, ya que Uds. valoran la actitud de servicio de todo el staff que laboramos en el Borghese. Como bien lo menciona el hotel es como una pequeña Villa que brinda exclusividad y encanto a nuestros gentiles huèspedes, con detalles como fina ropa de cama, estancias amplias y encantadoras ademàs de nuestra situaciòn privilegiada a solo una cuadra del hermoso templo de Santo Domingo de Guzmàn y a cuatro calles de Catedral y Zòcalo.
Esperamos verlos muy pronto y tener la oportunidad de dejarse consentir por todos nosotros.
Un cordial y afectuoso saludo de parte de todo el peronal del Palacio

Having never been to Mexico before and traveling with our two daughters, I wanted to find a safe place to stay. Hotel Borghese provides excellent security in addition to impeccable service, outstanding food, and beautiful, air-conditioned rooms. It is walking distance to the Zocalo and the city center. Luis, Adrid, and Christina, promptly took care of arranging anything we needed, in a prompt, professional, and friendly matter
