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

The place is clean and nice. But depending on the guests can be very noisy. Is close to Calle del Arco and La Merced Church. So It has a good location. They have coffee and tea for the guests. Also there is hot water.

We stayed at Posada La Merced for about 7 nights with a trip to Tikal in the middle. We'd stayed there seven years ago and it hadn't changed. The staff were all very helpful and friendly making our stay there very pleasant. It was lovely to sit in the courtyard in the evening and up on the roof terrace. It... More

Cross this place off your list if you're looking for pampered luxury. Move this place to the top of your list if you are an independent traveller who likes simple, comfortable, super clean and friendly places to stay. The lobby is often filled with huge bouquets of fresh flowers and international travelers who sit and share the day's adventures and... More

Our mission team group stayed here again this year. I love this little place. While the rooms are not big, they are nicely appointed with artwork and other touches. Yes, the bathrooms are small, but all 12 rooms had hot water. I love the back courtyard and the awesome view of the town from the terrace. Jorge (and the rest... More

I stayed here on a group tour sharing a room with one other person. While the room itself is nothing to write home about, the location is good and the rooftop is really lovely to hang out on. Be careful though, there's not much to stop you falling off the edge! Good points - Nice, central location, every easy and... More

This was a very nice hotel, close to the square, nice rooms, and nice staff. The only problem we had was that the shower was not hot. We were with a group and this was true of several rooms. My suggestion is to ask the front desk about this when you check in.

We loved this place. It is clean, comfortable and the staff and owner are wonderful. We arrived in Guatemala City after 7pm and Jorge, who we had booked the hotel with, got us a private shuttle straight from the airport to Posada La Merced at a reasonable price. Thanks for being so great Jorge! The rooms and bathrooms are small... More

Warm welcome and outstanding service here. Reasonable prices for a spotless and comfortable place to stay. Rooms vary by size and our last room--number 6 was perfect for two friends travelling! Will definitely return!
