How to Get There
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.
This hotel was more like a motel. It was a mix of good and bad. Here is my assessment:
Location: it just a few blocks away from the center of town and pretty close to lots of restaurants.
The Room: we stayed in a two bedroom suite. It was roomy and very comfortable. Two big bathrooms and plenty of common seating areas including a big terrace with a nice view.
The Restaurant: there is a rooftop restaurant which was very nice.
Very noisy. The street noise was very loud until about 11:00 pm. For me that was a problem.
There is no lobby or common sitting area, just a hallway to your room. And for the record, there is no swimming pool. Had I known that, we would not have stayed there.
There is no concierge, so if you need help picking a restaurant or making other arrangements forget about asking the staff. The gals in the office were completely unhelpful and surly. The guys made an effort and were helpful at times by driving us places.
Personally, when I'm on vacation I want more amenities than this hotel offered and I'm willing to pay for it. For that reason alone I would not stay there again.
One more thing that made me very angry, we booked this room through Booking.com. We had guaranteed price of $845. I reconfirmed that price the the day before the trip. However, the hotel charged us $972. about an 18% increase. We can't figure out how they came with that. It wasn't the exchange rate. Booking.com was no help either. Not a big deal but lesson learned.
We enjoy our great experience at El Palomar Hotel. The Staff it's great!!
Superb location with incredible view from the roof top where Antonia Bistro it's located.
Enjoy the Suite 3. Strongly recommend for those special moments.
I quickly learned that parking is a huge hustle in San Miguel de Allende so this Hotel was God sent. After going around and around the city looking for a parking spot and place to stay we came along El Palomar, it has its own parking. The staff quickly parked our car and unloaded our luggage. I had no reservation so and it was a busy Saturday morning. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Their only room available was a two room suite for $4000 pesos/night (around $230 bucks). I had no choice and for sure i was not going to go around looking for a parking spot. This room could have easily accommodated a family of at least 5-6.
The room was very specious, beds were comfy, linen looked cleaned, and the two bathrooms were nice clean and fancy.
Breakfast was complementary and tasty.
Staff always ready to help out.
Location was great, a 2 minute walk to la Plaza Principal and walking distance to most famous places. we never took a taxi since and pretty much walked all around the city.
The only negative side, and not the hotel's fault, was my allergy to goose-feather pillow which i am allergic too and broke out in hives, a 50mg Benadryl helped out though.
Overall, great staff, location, and comfort
