I have been staying at this charming place for over 15 years now, and it never fails to disappoint. Twelve of stayed here this time and enjoy the location, nicely furnished rooms, and the great customer service. Gerlinde (the manager) and Jorge could not be nicer. This little hotel is a good bargain. We will return again.

This place was nice enough, but the gray-haired German owner was one of the most unfriendly people I have ever met. She doesn't seem fond of costumer service, which put a damper on the experience for me. The staff pushes the restaurant next door, Fernando's, on their guests because they also own it. It's a fine restaurant, but there are... More

Because we have family near Antigua, we have visited Guatemala 15 years in a row. Once we discovered Posada La Merced, we are happy to book our room there each year. My reasons: hot water, clean sheets, lovely staff, no bugs, delightful garden, great location, drinking water without having to buy bottled water. The hotel staff understands that we have... More

Good value hotel with pretty garden and friendly staff. Bathrooms are tiny. The hotel is really secure, and tended to well. We had some very noisy neighbors the first night who's voices echoed loudly in the atrium and kept us awake - I was very close to complaining to the staff, but I don't like to make a fuss! Apart...

Ideally located and you couldn't meet more helpful, friendlier staff in a hotel than here, especially eric and jorge but........... Bedrooms on first floor are tiny and bathrooms are so small you have to stand in shower to go to toilet, the wash sink is then in the room. Had a room on bottom floor and got little sleep for...

Like most of the places in Antigua this hotel is pretty, as the city itself. The staff spoke English very well and had good knowledge about the city. I had to get some extra room at the last minute and they sorted something in their sister hotel next door. If you have a large group, you can book the courtyard... More

The staff was very accommodation when my traveling companions had to change rooms for a firmer bed. We were very happy with our room. It's not fancy, but a good value and well-located. The courtyards have beautiful flowers. There is ample wi-fi in the lobby.

I stayed twice in this hotel in May 2014-rooms 3 and 32. Both rooms were clean and nice. They have two courtyards on the first floor, which are quiet, and filled with plants-very nice. The staff was knowledgable about Antigua, helpfull and spoke english well. Some negatives on room 32- the shower in room 32 sprayed all over the place,... More

We stayed here in July of last year. This is a very well maintained, inexpensive hotel. It's very comfortable and clean. The staff are very friendly. And, like others are saying, the restaurant next door is a great place to eat. The view from the roof is amazing.

Posada La Merced Antigua is a casual, charming hotel with welcoming staff. It offers a good value and a great location. My first floor room was inviting and comfy after a late night arrival from Guatemala City’s airport. A few steps from the hotel is a great restaurant with coffee and breakfast that I’m still thinking about. A great treat... More
