The hotel was very, very comfortable. Although it has no air conditioning, this converted, single story, 200 year old hacienda keeps fairly cool. The garden in the middle of the hotel is so colorful with many, many different flowering plants and a central fountain. Comfortable rattan furniture and coffee tables around the garden give you a dry place to enjoy... More

I see the hotel got many favourable opinions and I will not be original saying that the location is really great, service wonderful and the cleanliness without reproach. I will only advice is for the jetlagged people (like is when we arrived) : the noise from the garden is terrible. American groups party loudly and the doors from inside the... More

We appreciate your good comments about the hotel, and we are really sorry to hear you were not able to go to sleep at 6 p.m. Regarding the noise, there is not much we can do about it. We have signs that the gatherings are not allowed after 10 p.m. We are sorry for the inconveniences it may have caused... More

We stayed at the Aurora a few years ago. We loved the place so much that we had a reservation to return there this month. But due to a family illness, we had to cancel just a week before. The Aurora was very gracious and handled the cancellation well. I am even more convinced this is one of the nicest... More

We stayed here in June of 2014. This hotel was really nice and in a good central location. We felt very safe here. The beds were nice and firm with clean linens. The bathroom was a bit small in our room number 17. This room was right by the front desk so it got a bit noisy. The only thing... More

This was not my first time at the Aurora, I've lost count. It is picture perfect. Entering through the wrought-iron gates, you enter a paradise of flowers around a fountain, and lounges invite to rest and admire. Bougainvillas and other flowering bushes are trained to the level of the overhanging roofs to show their splendor. Tiled patios all around this... More

I always stay at least once on my trips to Guatemala at Hotel Aurora-- as do many Guatemalans. Prices are reasons land it's a quiet spot given its location on Calle 4-- near the Central Park and Cathedral. Lovely garden for breakfast-- which is included. They also have a parqueo if you have a car.

We stayed in Hotel La Aurora twice during a hectic week in Antigua/Lake Atitlan. It was a pleasure: restful, clean, lovely gardens, good breakfasts, HOT water, in the center of everything. The staff were very accommodating and helpful in making additional travel plans. I've traveled many times to Guatemala, and this is my favorite hotel.

This hotel has one of the most beautiful gardens I've ever seen with all sorts of flowers and plants. There was even a parrot. There are many places to lounge around the hotel and in the courtyard. The hotel is very old and has been updated without losing any of its character. Rooms were big with high ceilings and windows.... More

The Hotel Aurora is truly delightful. Situated conveniently to the center of Antigua, it is a peaceful, beautiful place to which to return after a busy day. The rooms are comfortable, the decor is tasteful, the gardens are lovely, the staff are friendly and helpful, breakfasts are delicious and the entire experience is as nearly perfect as possible.
