What I liked about the hotels in Guatemala I chose is that they were lower end and all wonderful! I moved to Posada La Merced from Casa Santo Domingo (beautiful but though the rent was HIGH, I had to pay for water and the wifi was not so good) and was delighted with it! Good wifi, good location, free filtered... More

Great hotel and great location. Friendly staff. Charming decor. The rooms are not big but very nicely decorated. And ohh the rooftop so fun to go to top. We spent New Years Eve here and from the roof saw beautiful fireworks throughout the night in Antigua. Lovely walk from this hotel, explore colourful streets of Antigua and in short time... More

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

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.
