4) Santo Mauro Autograph Collection

Situated in the very elegant and exclusive Almagro residential area, the Palace of the Duke of Santo Mauro was built in the late 1800s and was converted into a luxury hotel many years ago. The hotel’s neo-classical French-inspired interior still makes you feel as if you are visiting the Duke for the weekend.
