Enjoyed two nights here. The rooms overlook a lovely courtyard and gardens, with a nice pool. The rooms are fairly spartan, for example tea and coffee would be good and a bit of decoration. However, they were quiet and the shower was good. Breakfast was pretty poor and didn't really appeal at all to the group if westerners I was... More

Situated just outside the town means that the hotel is relatively quiet, and it didn't take long to get anywhere. Ten minutes to a good selection of restaurants or 15 minutes to the centre of town. Laid out in the old colonial style, I thought this hotel was lovely. The buffet breakfast offered great choice and the price of dinner... More

Rooms set in groups along cobbled "streets". Room a bit dark but comfortable and quiet. Nice gardens and terrace. Breakfast overlooking the garden and small swimming pool. Easy walk into town. Food a bit pricey. Free wifi near reception.

This is a good hotel. The rooms are not very spacious and more basic than what you would expect. The setting is lovely, as well as the garden. It is about 15 minutes walking distance from the main square. Services are so so. 5$ wifi in rooms; 1$ bottle of water in rooms; laundry service available at unreasonably high prices.... More

What a lovely old hotel this is.....a pleasure to stay in. Although a 15 min walk into the town centre of Antigua it's still an excellent base for exploring this delightful city. The hotel has everything a traveller needs, clean and comfortable bedrooms, an excellent restaurant with attentive staff and all set in spacious grounds with a decent pool and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here... it is a quaint hotel in the old capital of Guatemala. The food was safe and good. The service was excellent and the place was very nice. We were connected with this stay through STP Guatemala Tours, an excellent tour service that made our accommodations, driver, and tour arrangements. We were pleased with the entire... More

Ancient style construction. Very clean and comfortable. We stayed for a couple of nights. It has a nice restaurant where we had breakfast. The pool is a little small though. It's not so close to the center but walking at night to get back was a pleasant experience. From the many different hotels in Antigua Guatemala, I would get back... More

We were on a 3-week tour of the Mayan ruins with a small group (9). We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our tour. The saying "you can't tell a book from its cover" applies here. The grounds were lovely, the hotel laid out like a village street, the second floor restaurant beautiful. We had a corner... More

At first appearances this hotel seemed like just what we were looking for - a nice setting and being a short walk from the centre of town we assumed this would make it a little quieter. Unfortunately the sound proofing was terrible. Our room was quite close to the main building and was surrounded by pathways to other rooms on... More
