Beautiful colonial palacio situated 100 meters from Antigua's main square and 150 to the main street. Our room (Don Pedro) was on the street despite that it was the quietest nights we had in Guatemala. The windows look straight out to the volcanoes. Rooms are huge, four poster bed, really good mattress. Nice smallish bathroom but with a bath. The... More

We loved this hotel. It has a small but friendly feel about it despite its palacial feel. When we visited in February it was very quiet so we had first-class, friendly service from the staff. Even the gardener introduced himself! Breakfast in courtyard was like being super-rich. Our room was beautifully fashioned in Spanish colonial style. All staff were very... More

Hotel Palacio de Doña Leonor is a beautifully restored Spanish-style mansion that was the residence of Doña Leonor, the daughter of the Spanish conqueror, Don Pedro de Alvarado, and the Tlaxcalan Indian Princess Tecuilhuatzin. The hotel is just around the corner from the Cathedral, the Palace of the Captain’s General, the City Hall and the Main Plaza .Each room is... More

Spacious, nicely furnished rooms on a lush central courtyard (Spanish colonial architectural style), English speaking desk staff. Only a block or two the central square. At night they close the doors and it's easy to miss, so take a careful look at it's location and surrounding businesses. Overhead lighting was slightly dim at night, but there were bedside lights for... More

This hotel provides a touch of luxury in Antigua. We stayed in the Dona Paula room, which was painted a dark red, in the original style. The room was huge, as was the bathroom, which had multiple light fittings, including a chandelier, just like the bedroom. The bathroom also provided a touch of luxury, not only in the surroundings but... More

This is a colonial town and this hotel fit that theme. Beautiful old building, nice common spaces, nicely done rooms. (A bit dark but the colonial buildings didn't have a lot of windows by design.) We had a fireplace and little sitting area which was cute. Bathrooms are amazing as are the amenities in the bathroom - big fluffy towels,... More

On our second visit from Australia to Antigua, we wanted somewhere special and we have found it at the Palacio. Our room although only a standard room is very large with antique furniture and a very luxurious bathroom with separate bath and shower, well lit with both chandelier and special make-up lights around the large mirror----really one of the nicest...

We were thrilled to stay at the Palacio de Dona Leonor. From the luxurious trappings, gorgeous decor, beautiful courtyard and perfect location, we couldn't have been more happy. The bathroom was a little haven inside our room which was a haven in the "palace". We enjoyed the gigantic, comfortable bed and our very own living area space. The light fixtures... More

I stayed here for New Year's Eve which is one of the best days to visit Antigua. The hotel does not have parking which is unfortunate, however for 10 USD per day they will valet the car. I made the room reservation in March (yes for December, book early!) and about two weeks prior to my stay there got an... More

Its an old "palace" around a pretty and well-furnished courtyard. It's attractive and stylish, and I'm sure most visits go off pretty well. We stayed twice, separated by a few days, and for the first stay were upgraded to a very large premium room . The hotel seemed very quiet. Only real problem was that the shower sprayed water everywhere... More
