Printer friendly version

 
 

A beautiful hotel boutique with six unique and exclusive rooms. A true colonial jewel located in the heart of the city of Oaxaca in Oaxaca.

To stay at the Palacio Borghese is a unique encounter with beauty, art, gastronomy, history and total well-being.

As it happens in the love stories, the Palacio Borghese seduces through its attention to multiple and diverse details, the fineness of a brocade, the beauty of a painting, the elegance of the crystal chandeliers or the refinements of a bathroom; details that bring each of the rooms to combine in a very harmonious way the modern comforts and the charms of the European classicism.

With its six rooms, the Palacio Borghese offers the possibility of staying in an exclusive place that offers privacy, while enjoying a personalized service wrapped in luxury and refinement.

The charm of the beautiful cloister invites to read or to meditate. The view from the terrace, where you can admire the beautiful historical center of the city of Oaxaca, and the personalized attention of the staff of the hotel; lead to live a unique and unforgettable experience.

Palacio Borghese is an ode to the elegance and good taste, for this it is considered as “the most beautiful hotel in Oaxaca.”

The hotel has the Galería del Palacio (Palace Gallery,) an art space that exhibits the varied artistic and cultural offerings of Oaxacan artists giving great importance to painting, printing, graphic design, sculpture, photography, design and art objects, with the aim of promoting and marketing these works. The Galería del Palacio offers periodic exhibitions, workshops, conferences and presentations. The gallery promotes famous artists but equally offers an opportunity for young artists with innovative proposals and unique styles to exhibit as well. The Galería de Palacio is open to guests of the hotel, to tourists visiting the city and to the general public.

The hotel does not admit persons under 18 years old.

HISTORY:
In the sixteenth century during the viceroyalty period an incredible number of churches and convents were built in the New Spain. It was in this context that in Oaxaca (the new Antequera,) in the year 1576, construction was started on the Convent of Sainte Catherine of Sienna, the second convent founded in Mexico by the religious order of the Dominican nuns.

The land where the Hotel Palacio Borghese is now located belonged, in colonial times, to part of the lands of the small Convent Del Carmen. The establishment built on this plot was intended to house family members of noble ancestry, who finding themselves in transit while visiting the religious nuns in the then famous convent of Sainte Catherine of Sienna, could lodge in comfortable rooms, making their stay in the new Antequera as agreeable as possible.

 

Due to the reform laws of 1862, the convents of nuns were suppressed, which caused the current building of Palacio Borghese to be confiscated and to be used for other purposes. In the following years, the building passed through several hands, being used for among other things, as a candle factory and a dairy factory.

 

The building was recovered with the aim of restoring it and recapturing its particular charm and singular beauty; and after two years of restoration, today the property flaunts its original splendor, housing as it does six beautiful suites and a spectacular terrace.

 

ACCOMMODATIONS:
The hotel has six specially designed and luxuriously decorated the rooms. The rooms of Palacio Borghese combine European elegance with modern technology. The charm of the fittings combines perfectly with the fine upholstery and drapery that adorn each and every one of the rooms.

 

All the rooms are decorated with a replica (both in size and technique) of one of the paintings of the famous collection of the “Caste Paintings,” painted by the great Oaxacan artist, Miguel Cabrera, the maximum exponent of the viceroyal painting.
