We spent 8 nights at this hotel, found it totally met our needs, and the price is reasonable. The beds were very comfortable, the shower was fine and during the day there was a 42 year of parrot, Lorenza, in the garden. The patio outside our door was lovely and we enjoyed the outdoor living that Guatemala offers. The morning... More

This is a lovely hotel in Antigua. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel there are other hotels in Antigua. However, if you chose to stay at Aurora Hotel you will feel at home in this quaint and historic building. The building originally housed the first girls school in Antigua. It's a true Spanish style home with a center... More

Their is a beautiful garden in the middle of the hotel which you can sit and relax in. The stuff was nice, we booked threw the hotel couple of tours.... More

We have stayed at fancier hotels (e.g. Antigua's Porta Hotel) and found this one much more to our liking, But I will concede that young children would prefer a place with a swimming pool and lots of mysterious corridors in which to wander around, while business people would prefer a place with conference rooms. But for vacationing adults, or families... More

I enjoyed 3 nights at this hotel in mid-Feb. The hotel is conveniently located a couple of blocks from the Square with a number of excellent restaurants within a short walking distance. The rooms were nicely decorated and quiet, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was modern, the courtyard was tranquil and filled with beautiful flowers and comfortable chairs, the... More

I very much enjoyed a 4-day stay at this hotel. The rooms very large and the beds were extremely comfortable. Bathrooms are modern, but there could have been a bit more hot water one morning. The rooms are off a lovely courtyard where you can sit either in the sun or in the shade and there is a fountain in... More

The hotel is situated on the best block of Antigua, near to the Cacao Museum and other shops. The city's main square is just two blocks ahead. The room were extremely big, with capability to host at least five people. The decoration is nice and the hotel's patio is a very pleasant Place. The service is very good, especially those... More

We live in another area of Guatemala, but sometimes have reason to be in Antigua. We always book our dates around the availability of a room at the Aurora. Over the years the hotel has never failed to please enormously. Other reviewers have rightfully raved about their rooms, location, breakfast in a beautiful dining room. I second their emotion!
