What a beautiful hotel! We stayed for two days before and two days after a trip to volunteer at an orphanage outside of Guatemala City. The hotel has an amazing ambiance, serves a delicious choice of breakfast included with your room and lies at the edge of Antigua so there is no disturbance ben during big holiday celebrations. We HIGHLY... More

This is my sixth time staying at Hotel Candelaria and I fall in love with it more each time I visit. The staff is friendly, hotel is clean, the grounds are beautiful - what more could you ask for? It's on the edge of town, but a trip into town is about $2.40 in a Tuk Tuk (and who doesn't... More

We arrived at this beautiful hotel in the early afternoon. We had not had lunch , so we asked the owner about nearby restaurants. He told us about a restaurant the we could order from, and said that they would set up the dining room, and serve it for us. So we ordered from an Italian restaurant. The soup we... More

This was my first time in Antigua and picking a hotel is never easy but this was defiantly a good choice. Although the hotel is on the edge of town and a little further from the central area, it meant it was a little quieter that other more central hotels. The room was a good size and the courtyard area... More

I've been using this hotel for about 12 years (2-3 per year). It is a bit out of the way but for me it has been worth it. Facilities are beautiful, staff is courteous and very helpful, good breakfast & excellent coffee. I've stayed at many other hotels in La Antigua but always come back to this hotel.

As one reviewer wrote-very inconspicuous on the outside. In fact if this is your first time coming here you might wonder if you're in the right place as it has no outwardly appearance of a hotel. As you walk through the small front door, you are instantly transported back in time. The hotel has beautiful wood work and the interior... More

The hotel is just beautifull. It has a beautifull central garden. It also has a terrace with a unique view of the three volcanos. The decoration and all the details are very nice and so according with Antigua an its colonial style. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The location is perfect. In a very quiet area, close enough... More

I have stayed at the Candelaria Antigua for a week every year since 2011. It is pretty inconspicuous from the outside, but is exquisite on the inside. The courtyard is both beautiful and calming. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate your needs and make your stay as comfortable as possible. The majority of my meals were eaten... More

The views from the roof of Hotel Candelaria were amazing. Watching the clouds pass the volcano each morning was moving. The staff were attentive without being obtrusive, the hotel was clean and well maintained. My only complaint would be the echo of noise from the other guests, the courtyard seemed to vibrate with voices. I would definitely stay there again.

I was blown away by the accommodations. It was charming and well kept. The staff are kind and considerate and willing to help with anything. I especially loved the garden and the view from the roof was amazing. I can't wait for the opportunity to go back.
