We chose this hotel mainly based on the TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. I am actually not sure I can add much to the previous reviews. We loved Hotel Cirilo! We arrived after 7 PM after a long shuttle ride from San Pedro. Ricardo, the owner checked us in and was friendly and helpful. We decided to have dinner... More

With a small and friendly staff, beautifully appointed rooms, and lovely grounds, our stay was a highlight of our trip to Guatemala. The quite hotel is a long walk to the square, but a great way to unwind and an excuse to windowshop in Antigua.

We were so impressed with the design of this hotel built around the ruins of an old church. It was very peaceful, personalized service, great food and fantastic staff. We had the room with a loft for a third person. It was very clean and comfortable - bathroom facilities were top-notch. They provided a large bottle of water daily and... More

We loved our stay at Hotel Cirilo. We felt like guests in a private home. Service was impeccable. Highly recommended. Within walking distance to restaurants in Antigua. Stayed 6 nights and hated to leave!

This hotel blew our socks off! Having read all of the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor, we expected a great hotel, but we weren't ready for how wonderful this place truly is... After arriving from Guatemala City, the staff was very cordial and held our luggage while we explored the city. It is approximately a 5 to 10 minute walk... More

I just returned from a long weekend in Antigua Guatemala. First, let me say that I travel more than most people and hold top status with a few major hotel programs. In short this place is a MUST on your choice of hotels if you travel to Antigua. I usually pick things apart and analyze them for their shortcomings but... More

My girlfriend and I arrived really tired and hungry after a strenuous journey, quite late at night. In fact too late to eat out, which at first seemed a problem. Owner Ricardo however had other ideas, and offered, and then personally cooked a fantastic simple meal that really hit the spot. Over the next couple of days this level of... More

Our stay at Hotel Cirilo was absolutely fantastic! This hotel is gorgeous! The rooms are so beautiful and spacious, and each has a fireplace. The owners, Ricardo and Giovanni, were perfect hosts and catered to our every whim. Christmas night we got back about 8:45 pm tired and hungry after our day at Pacaya Volcano. Giovanni and the kitchen staff... More

The rooms and common areas are spacious and elegantly decorated. The grounds aren't huge, but they are beautifully landscaped. My favorite part about the day was having breakfast in the dining room. In the mornings the sun floods in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The portions, selection and quality of the food is great, too. Ricardo provided incredible personal service. When... More

This place is magic. We have stayed here many times and it is outstanding! Ricardo and his staff have a gem on their hands. This hotel is gorgeous, intimate, luxurious and just keeps delivering outstanding stays. The rooms, grounds, food and service are top notch. My wife and I rented out the hotel in late January and had our wedding... More
