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

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
