With rooms sited around an old colonial style courtyard with garden and fountain, the hotel exhibits a charm of past years, accentuated by historical photographs and traditional, European style furniture in the comfortably sized rooms and hallways. Its conveniently located 200 metres from Parque Central, alongside a cobbled street, the noise from which is largely muffled by efficient shutters and... More

We had large group of 42 and we book the entire hotel. The rooms are all updated and the beds are the best. Everything you would need for a home away from home. The staff is always very accommodating and takes very good care of us. We feel safe and secure as it is gated and there is a beautiful... More

We stayed here at the end of July 2015, and were woken on our first morning by marching bands outside our window for the 25th July celebrations. Awesome way to see Antigua for the first time!! The hotel is a beautiful old Spanish colonial style place, with a beautiful courtyard containing a massive garden and fountain. We stayed in room... More

My family and I stayed at Aurora prior to hiking Pacaya Volcano. Accommodations were very nice with wonderful bathroom fixtures. Breakfast was very nice but we did order from the menu to have a better balanced diet before our hike. Hotel staff was extremely accommodating to our needs and most of the front desk staffers did speak English. Location was... More

I've stayed twice at Hotel Aurora, and I've passed along the name to all of my friends here in San Salvador for when they are in Antigua. It is close to everything, friendly staff, beautiful gardens and sitting areas, big rooms, and a good breakfast.

I stayed for 9 days in early June in order to explore the captivating historic city of Antigua, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Aurora's location is fabulous, next door to the Museum of Chocolate(!) and two short blocks to the Parque Central, with excellent coffee shops and local life. The Aurora attracts friendly people and, in June,... More

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
