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

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 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
