“Sweet and Lovely”
Reviewed 21 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The Penthouse is just as described and photos give a true picture of the property. There is, however, only one bedroom. The second sleeping space can accommodate 2 adults comfortably but you must pass through the other bedroom to acces the single bath. As a solo guest, this was not a problem for me. The super large bed was mucho comfy. I did not cook at all but the kitchen was equipped with anything you might need. Loved the bells tho you can't count on them for the correct time. So quirky and fun. Great location. I did not find the stairs to be a problem and I'm 80 y.o. With arthritis.
Alice, the owner, is delightful and charming as was Christine.

“Absolutely wonderful.”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The accommodations were great, location was perfect, convenient to so many restaurants, and things to see. The views from the outdoor space were truly amazing. Friends had warned us about the church bells which rang often but after the first day they really did not bother us. San Miguel is a beautiful place and we hope to go back again and take friends with us.

“A truly fabulous palace!”

Alice's Palace is perfectly magical. A traditional colonial style-home, with lots of garden and other outdoor space that puts you squarely in the mood for this beautiful city. Far from the sterility of hotels and most rentals, you are truly home. The apartment is well appointed, private and full of beautiful art from Alice's travels. The covered outdoor patio was so charming, cool and comfortable. Alice has provided everything you might possibly need--we felt like royalty! Centrally located with a square right across the street, full of shops and nearby the fruit/vegetable market. Everything is within easy walking distance and views from the roof and patios are gorgeous. Don't hesitate--this is the place for you!

Alice's Palace has the most spectacular views you can imagine - breathtaking. The location is great. We walked all over and enjoyed many local restaurants and sites. It is not two bedrooms, but is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is stocked so you could cook all your meals if you liked. We would stay their again for sure!

Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Enjoyed our time in San Miguel even more with this lovely apartment. Alice is a pleasure and her apartment reflects her interesting / eclectic taste.
Her recommendations for dining and shopping were great. Lots of wonderful things to do and see in easy walking distance.
