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

It used to be a real palace during the colonial period and now they did a great remodeling job to make it a hotel and restaurant. Rooms are so beautiful, each one is different; pretty modern and comfortable and at the same time full of antiques: chandeliers, furniture, statues, lamps and paintings are all around the place... the garden is...

Everything about our stay here was really lovely. The decor has been completed with incredible attention to detail-- the rooms are beautifully painted and the beds and bathrooms are heavenly. We had several meals in the garden area and the food and service was excellent. Everyone on the staff was welcoming and highly professional. The best part is that it... More

Perfect staging point to explore Antigua. Our visit happened in August, the rainy season. However only our 1st day had rain. Don't be surprised if you've dinned outside and return after 8:00 that the doors will be closed. Knock and the porter will let you in. Wifi is strongest in the courtyard and there's a 2nd network around the pool.

I first saw this incredible property at the end of a medical mission trip to Zacapa in 2010. I immediately fell in love and promised myself that I would one day return and stay in this Spanish Palacio. My dream of staying here came to life for two glorious evenings in July while traveling to Guatemala on business. From the... More

The hotel is built around a garden patio right in the center of town. Once you enter you are in a different century and completely unaware that you are in a 21st C busy community. The bar and restaurant are upscale and just perfect. There is a welcoming anmbience and gre4at service. The rooms are decorated with traditional trappings. They... More
