great location, walking distance to everything, right next to the arch. The room is very spacious, we had a room with a refrigerator so that was very nice, Internet was not very good from our room, we had to go outside next to the office for better internet connection. Breakfast was not always on time, but it is okay. staff... More

The hotel and restaurant is under new ownership and we are in the process of making the hotel much better. We have installed a new mesh internet system which provides great Wi-Fi signal in all hotel rooms and hotel common areas. The bell at the Arch does ring every hour (not every 15 minutes as stated by this reviewer), but... More

A very interesting hotel due to the location and history, the rooms are basic but clean and the staff is friendly. The grounds are pretty and well-maintained. The location is very convenient to walking to local landmarks and restaurants and the area is safe and comfortable. The minor drawbacks include the lack of warm water (which shouldn't be a huge...

Stayed here for one night in April and I have to say I was expecting much better. This is a former convent now a hotel. The location is spot on being close to the centre of town and attached to the famous arch. On the downside I found it to be way overpriced for what it was; the room was... More

This hotel is everything you want in a destroyed town like Antigua, it has the remnants of the convent with the arc and clock. The rooms are large and furbished with the style of the convent. The hallways have fascinating moments from the convent and an altar, the staff change daily flowers and offering.. It is smack in the middle... More

We stayed here in March and Antigua was packed. The location can't be beat, right by the Arco, a few blocks from the Merced church and the Plaza Central. The street is a pedestrian mall. We did not have a car; can't comment on parking, but a sign says that it is not available on certain days. Parking is tight... More

The hotel by itself is beautiful, the location is superb but this also comes with a cost. The first problem we encounter was with parking, if you are renting a car or are taking your car to Antigua it would be an inconvenience to stay at this hotel. First of all, they can only give you a parking spot (that... More

I have stayed at the hotel twice (with a group of 15) and with Jeanette three times. She and her staff make the difference. I have brought groups and stayed at 7 other hotels over the past few years and this is by far the very best experience (and best price) we have had. It will be hard to find... More

You can't get more central in this beautiful historic town, or more historic in its own right. An old convent with courtyards and plenty of atmosphere. The staff were great - very helpful with all our requests, even looking up a restaurant online for us and directing us to it. We also requested a boxed breakfast as we were leaving... More

Great Location at the Arch. Jeanette met me at reception and the great service continued throughout my stay. My Guestroom was comfortable and located just off the courtyard. The bed was comfortable and the room was equipped with a small space heater for the chilly evenings. It was very convenient to have the restaurant in the same building. The food... More

This is my 5th place I've stayed in Antigua. By far, this is the most comfortable place I've stayed in for this price! Our beds were very comfortable, rooms were spacious and atmosphere was very pleasant. Hearing the water fountain in the middle of the courtyard was a very nice way to wake up. We only stayed one night as... More
