We spent two nights in this very nice old house which has a great location in Antigua only a footsteps away from the restaurants and the old centre. However we did not sleep at all. It was like a young hostel where party people is laughing and yelling after coming back from their drinking night out. We even felt not... More

Our final hotel of the trip was the La Merced in Antigua. I had two rooms here so I'll base this review on the room I shared before I split off from the group. It was a triple as you can see from the pics. Good sized bathroom and shower. WiFi in the room. Opened out onto the central courtyard... More

We've stayed at Posada La Merced a number of times on our breaks in Antigua. It is a charming, well-appointed hotel, with many different options. I love the beautiful entry that opens to the gardens and fountain in the back. There is a roof-top patio which offers a great view of all of Antigua. And, if you want to buy... More

We stayed in the posada twice, because we loved it so much. The hotel had great and comfortabele rooms, very good beds and a very good shower. The staff is really helpfull and kind. There is a kitchen and rooftoop terrace (the best in antigua!). It's just a great place to relax when you visit Antigua!

This hotel itself is very pleasant. I stayed here for one night and would have enjoyed my stay if I hadn't been kept awake most of the night by the noise of people coming in after their night out. There was a large group of people staying at the hotel and they didn't take any notice of the signs asking... More

We found Posada La Merced through the Lonely Planet. The hotel was centrally located, close to restaurants, super mercados, shopping. All staff were pleasant and most helpful with info on where to go, what to see, tours, etc. The rooms were neat and clean and comfortable. Towels were very soft. The hotel has a kitchen which enabled us to buy... More

If you choose this hotel, they will make sure you feel good. Stayed here for 2 nights and and enjoyed every second. Close to everything and the view from rooftop early mornings and night was just great.

Stayed here 3 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Great location and the views from the rooftop of the surrounding volcanoes is awesome. No air conditioning but it wasn't needed at that elevation. Great place to stay.

I have stayed here often but hadn't for a few years and my return was disappointing. There is a face lift to the rooms and the garden space is nicer. However, there is consistently no hot water, the internet is down or nonfunctional, the bedding is terrible and they made the decision not offer brewed coffee. Instead, you are forced... More

I love to stay here during my visits to Antigua. The rooms in the back courtyard are set in such a peaceful, calm atmosphere. Yes, the rooms are not big, with the bathrooms even smaller, but they are nicely decorated and spotless. This price for this hotel is excellent considering its location, free water, kitchen privileges, and magnificent rooftop terrace... More
