Very simple and clean. Staff very friendly. No air but fans provided. I would definitely stay there again. Great especially if you are on a budget. Filtered water provided to refill your bottles and hot water for instant coffee (which was very good) also available. I definitely recommend this hotel and hope to have the opportunity to return.

We come here twice a year, and love it. The staff, Jorge, Gerlinde, and others, including the night staff, are so professional and friendly. While some of the rooms may be smaller with small bathrooms, it is immaculate and the charm and the terrace is awesome. It is a wonderful for its price range in Antigua. We love the free... More

I have stayed in posada la merced numerous times throughout my travels in Guatemala and they are always very accommodating and polite. The courtyards have beautiful gardens and the rooms are kept very clean and maintained. Many of the rooms require walking up stairs, but if stairs are a challange for you, just know to request a lower level room.... More

Have stayed here many times in the past fifteen years. It is clean and quiet . Rooms a bit on the small side which can be warm if it is warm in Antigua. About 4 blocks from Parque Central and close to many restaurants. Big plus is Fernandos next door which has some of the best coffee in Antigua and... More

The staff here was fantastic!! It isn't too expensive, the location is great, hot showers, wifi, right next door to fernando's cafe, it's pretty great overall. :) I stayed here just for one night to escape and it was perfect for that. There was large groups there the day that I booked the room and the day I was checked... More

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
