I stayed at Hotel La Catedral with my family for 6 days, and had a great experience! The hotel is beautiful with gardens and wonderful staff who were very kind and attentive to anything we needed. It felt like a peaceful place to relax in the middle of Antigua: it is right next to the central park and within walking... More

The hotel is small, only 8 rooms but the small courtyard and the decorations are lovely. My wife and I really enjoyed the time there. Our room was small but quaint and nice. The bathroom compensated for the size of the bedroom. It had a nice sink and a big shower. In general, the decoration was just beautiful. Despite of... More

The hotel is centrally located. The rooms are nice, the beds are comfortable. The price is high and the service is the worst. I waited for 20 minutes for a cup of coffee, nobody came to take my breakfast order which made me have to go outside the hotel. When I mentioned to the person at the desk, he was... More

We enjoyed our 3 nights at Hotel Catedral. We were met at the airport as arranged. The room was comfortable and even though it faced the road, the double glazing ensured that we got a good nights sleep. Prices in Antigua are much higher than in the rest of Guatemala but we felt that the hotel was expensive for what... More

My son and I enjoyed our short stay at la Catedral at the end of March. We appreciated that our luggage could be stored during the day, before we left for the airport. The shuttle service was very convenient. Delicious breakfast, and friendly staff!

my husband and I arrived before check in time and were treated very well by the staff. We were able to leave our luggage safely and explore Antigua. The room itself was very nice sized with a comfortable king size bed. The bathroom was a bit small. The setting, lovely courtyard, and attention to detail made this a very good... More

We stayed for four nights while attending a wedding in Antigua based on prior TripAdvisor recommendations and the close proximity to the wedding venue (in the ruins of Santa Clara - beautiful!). Hotel la Catedral is centrally located for touring Antigua being less than one block from Plaza Mayor. Our room was well appointed with a window overlooking the street... More

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our two night stay at Hotel la Catedral. Marco made all of our arrangements smooth and easy, someone was waiting for us at the airport at 6 am, sign in hand. Less than an hour later we were at the hotel. They served us coffee, and stowed away our luggage, with... More

We spent 2 nights in this small hotel just off the main square. All the rooms are around a courtyard garden and as the first room we were shown was rather small and dark, I asked if we could change rooms and was given a larger room with more windows letting in more light from the courtyard, in which we...

I spent my last night in Antigua at the Hotel La Catedral. What a delightful oasis in the middle of this tourist destination. There are only 8 rooms that surround a pleasant courtyard furnished with comfortable seats, providing a quiet place to read or wait. Breakfast is included and enjoyable with plenty of choices. There is a lounge that will... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel La Catedral is an authentic Spanish Colonial house, originally built as part of the "Palacio de los Capitanes Generales" in the center of Antigua, Guatemala. Its construction began in 1558. The space was rebuilt in 1754 and it was used as the residence of the General Capitan. The hotel is located one block from the Central Park and the Cathedral (Catedral de Santiago). It is within a minute or two walking distance from many restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and Spanish Colonial ruins. As one of the original structures in Antigua, Hotel La Catedral preserves its charm and elegance and it has been completely restored to bring you all the comfort and rest you're looking for during your stay. It has a very cozy and romantic environment, just like Antigua itself. The hotel has 8 rooms with a King Size bed or with two Full Size beds. Each room individually decorated to give you a slightly different feel each time you visit us. All of them are equipped with Flat Panel TV set, DVD Player, Cable TV, Security Box, Wireless Internet (at no additional cost), telephone and alarm clock. All bathrooms are stylishly and individually designed with antique marble. All toiletries and hair dryer also included. All our rates include, Full a La Carte Breakfast, free international calls to designated countries (time limited) and private parking in the same location. In the same facilities we have an equipped private meeting room and a Family Lounge-Bar. We also organize and coordinate your Tour needing's to any other beautiful destinations as well as transportation from and to Guatemala City. ... more   less
