A pleasant hotel near the centre of Antigua. We were greeted with a cold drink in arrival and swiftly checked in. We stayed for 2 nights in room 108. The room is large with 2 double beds and plenty of floor space. No aircon, but there is a fan/dehumidifier, which was enough in this mild climate. TV with lots of... More

We booked this hotel because of the favorable TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We stayed one night, then ended up booking it for the last night we were in Antiqua, because we enjoyed it so much. It was clean, comfortable, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a few blocks from the Old Town Plaza, so... More

I recently spent some time in Antigua and lodged for the first of those nights at Hotel Las Farolas. Overall, I was very pleased with my stay, except for one little detail. First, the good stuff. As is the case for many places in Antigua, from the outside, it is hard to tell what is behind the high walls of... More

We just stayed 1 night in Las Farolas, and we enjoyed our stay. The room is standard but comfy enough. But we liked the big tropical garden of the hotel. It is a delight to walk around here, early in the morning. The hotel has a nice restaurant, with a view at the garden. Breakfast was a filling plate with... More

First impression, as we walked into the lobby, 5 members of staff behind the counter. No welcoming smile, just matter of fact doing their job. No warmth at all. Then as we arrived at 2pm with checkin at 3pm, she told us we were too early and the room is not ready yet. We said could we just leave our... More

The room we were in smelled of mildew. They charge Q8 (about $1.00) per hour for the WiFi which you can only purchase in cash, one hour at a time, and the sign-in is only usable one device (so no sharing an hour with others). They also block cell phone reception for some reason.

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
