This hotel is absolutely beautiful, however it is such a waste. The service and accommodations do not match up to the beauty of this hotel. First I was given a different room than the one I booked. The shower did not function to well and when I told the front desk they said the repairman was not available till monday,... More

Beware when making reservation on Holly Week (Semana Santa), i got confirmation of reserve, et etc, but room was already sold to someone else, this is not hotel fault, just be aware when making online reservations with this hotel, they are not 100% accurate. Better to deal directly

This fine hotel did not honor our prepaid reservation. We were disappointed as we had paid a lot of money to guarantee the room. They sent us to a nice hotel, but in a less central locale. I would not trust them to hold a paid room in the future. We paid $245 USD. The hotel they sent us to... More

Ended up staying at this hotel after our flight was cancelled and there was no hotels available in the City. Service: Great. No complaints. Everyone was helpful and friendly. Location: Great. Only 1 block from the central square. Walking distance to pretty much anywhere in central Antigua. Food: didn't eat at the restaurant but had several cocktails at the bar.... More

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

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
