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

My wife and I just spent four days here while we were having a lot of excellent dentistry with Dr Luis Ramirez.. We needed a relaxing place while recovering from the surgeries. Access to the kitchen enabled ice packs and hot water. The staff...Jorge and Carlos are gracious and helpful hosts. While the rooms are small, the beds are comfortable,... More

The reviews made me think this would be sweeter than it is. The room is clean and simple, but not particularly good for sleeping or working. I could hear someone cough at 4 a.m. though there was no one on the second floor with me. Sounds carry through thin walls and courtyards. As far as work, the room was dark... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while I was in Antigua. My room was clean and had two single beds. The hotel is located not too far from the center of town. Maybe a 10-15 minute walk. There were lots of places to eat and drink near by. Day tours can be arranged at the front desk. The free Wifi worked... More

I went to Antigua to celebrate my birthday, and we wanted a good deal on a room. The price you get on line is better, but in the end, it's not that worth it. They have free parking, but the parking lot is from another hotel (next time maybe we will go to this hotel cause is really near de... More

Our group stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in December. Its centrally located (about 10 minutes easy walk to the central park). The hotel is colonial style, with interesting features. The central courtyard is really pretty. They have a free safe, wifi, drinking water, tea and coffee. Staff are also really friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit... More

Really liked this place.....the inner courtyards are beautiful, the rooms, adequate and clean! The staff was lovely - kind and helpful. They have lockboxes for your valuables, as well as storage for your luggage if you are leaving later than checkout! They also have a computer for guests' use, and you can print your Boarding Passes here!!! Plenty of fresh... More

When you first arrive at this hotel the lobby and hallway area are set up nicely. You get the feeling you have walked into a nice hotel. Unfortunately, that ends when you get to your room. The room I had on the second floor 25 was very plain and dated. It could use a big spruce up. The walls are... More

. Background: Our group stayed at this hotel on the final night of our 3-week Central American tour. PROS: Location... location... location is its best asset. Centrally-located just one block from La Merced square, it is mere steps away from shops and restaurants. The hotel's façade incorporates old Spanish colonial design elements with its large wooden gated entrance and reflected... More
