Hotel Cirilo is without doubt the best Hotel in Antigua, Guatemala. I've visited Antigua over 18 times and had never before found a hotel as wonderful as Hotel Cirilo. From the moment you arrive, everyone is friendly, attentive and very helpful. The staff provides a superb quality of service and ensures all guests have a pleasant stay. This is definetely... More

To say this hotel exceeds expectations is really something if you have read any of the TripAdvisor reviews. I was a little sceptical at so many rave reviews but they are all true. Hotel Cirilo was better than described because its really hard to do justice in words to the absolute serenity and beauty of this hotel. Skillfully built into... More

I had the opportunity to visit for the very time Guatemala in May and the pleasure to stay at Hotel Cirilo. I have travelled to many countries in the US, Europe and Latin America and stayed at many nice hotels but this hotel is by far the best! It is magically beautiful and soothing. The hotel is constructed around an... More

My sister and I went down to Gutemala for a five day sisters only trip. Our first stop was Antigua and we could not have been more blown away. I've done a lot of traveling and have stayed in various different accomodations (both luxury and budget). I've can truly say I've never been so pleasantly surprised with the beauty of... More

I travel a great deal and have seldom found a hotel that measures up to this one! The artistic building and magnificent garden are built into the ruins of an 18c church with each room's being bothered only by the sound of birds at daybreak. Yet it is just a few minutes to town, a refreshing walk along picturesque cobblestone... More

I stayed at Cirilo which had been recommended by friends that stayed in March. I had seen pictures which looked beautiful but the reality was even more sumptuous. The surroundings of the monastery's ruins makes this place a heaven of quietness and spirituality The best part was that the owner Ricardo, upon learning at 5h00am that our 4h00am ride had... More

Like much of Antigua, going behind the outer wall is where the beauty lies...this Hotel is no exception. The breakfast room is a great place to sip coffee. The beds were comforable and the rooms had fireplaces. It's a bit of a walk to the main square (about 15 min) but there are plenty of taxis and tuktuks available if... More

Great, small, intimate inn. Located just as you enter La Antigua. About a 10 minute stroll to town/central square. Rooms are built around ruins of former 18th church. Quiet location. Cozy, nicely decorated rooms, all with fireplaces. Ample daily, breakfast served in small restaurant on premises. Ricardo, the owner, manager, chef and concierge, was wonderful. He suggested places to visit,... More

The owner has done a fantastic job. Beautiful property built amongst ruins of an old church. he also goes out of his way to take care of you. It was like staying in a little miniaturized version of the famous Santa Domingo hotel in town (which happens to be just about 5 blocks from this hotel) When we arrived late,... More

This hotel is certainly a hidden gem. It's a 15 min walk from Center Park which is great as it's quiet and away from the loud noise at night. The small boutique hotel was build around an old crumbled church so feels warm, elegant yet completely comfortable...and affordable. Once in the colorful courtyard and a cocktail in hand, we didn't... More
