We stayed here for 6 nites over Semana Santa week - and we had a consistent, great stay. Hotel is well located (5min walk to Parque Central), but still on a quiet street. Although it looks unassuming from the street - as most places in Antigua, behind the stores boasts a nice lobby, quiet gardens, and perfect dining/breakfast spot with... More

The hotel is well positioned, close enough to the city centre for ease of access but far enough away to avoid the noise. It is a charming building, quite unassuming from the road but quite lovely inside. The rooms are arranged around a stunning garden. Unfortunately this courtyard also contains the restaurant which can go on serving until quite late,... More

Stayed here last night as part of a tour. It has great decor , set out on a courtyard system. Arrived late in the evening, so late for dinner and opted for soup, a traditional Guatemalan one . This was yummy......you have to love coriander, which I do !! Breakfast was a bit chaotic to say the least!!! A huge... More

The 2 of us stayed in this hotel for 6 nights at the end of a 2 week tour of Guatemala and it is certainly one of the best we had. The staff were so helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome. The room was clean and spacious but you did need to open the windows, especially the... More

This is a fairly central colonial type hotel . The rooms we had were on the ground floor and backed onto the street. They were large enough but had a musty smell and we thought they were a bit damp.. We hung up some clothes to air as they had been soaked the day previous day and to be honest... More

When we arrived the lights flickered and went out and emergency generation was required. Some of the group got hot water but some did not and the TV in our room did not work. The hotel maintenance staff (who came very quickly) were unable to fix it that day, but managed to get it working on our second day. Breakfast... More

Whenever I go to Antigua, I stay at Las Farolas. Beatiful garden! The rooms are big, clean, comfortable. The staff is anxious to please. You feel at home. The breakfast is very good (a la carte, not buffet). I also dined and lunched in the hotel restaurant. Excellent food, not a wide selection, but very gourmet. The hotel is quiet... More

Our rooms were large and airy and have nice appointed bathrooms attached. The windows face the courtyard that was even lusher than when we were last here October 2011.

This very basic hotel had no air conditioning in the rooms which were unbearably hot preventing any sleep. In fact it was hotter inside the rooms than outside. Service in the restaurant had two speeds – slow and slower. We only ate there for breakfast. The gardens were beautiful and well maintained.
