I have stayed here twice on two different trips. The rooms are very nice and comfortable and there is a beautiful courtyard and terrace with nice views. Breakfasts are complimentary. WiFi is available and reaches the rooms, but had a low signal strength in one. It is about a block from the trail leading up to the cerro de la... More

Antigua was basically our first stop in Guatamala and the hotel staff were very welcoming. The rooms were clean and comfortable (minus the pillows being a bit thin if I am being picky). The hotel felt very secure and the rooftop deck was awesome to read a book or play a game of cards. Plus, the included breakfast was an... More

Loved the character of this unique hotel! Accommodations in the center of town can become quite noisy at night so having to walk a few blocks towards the action in Antigua is a small price to pay for a peaceful nights sleep. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and breakfast in the morning was excellent. The rooms are... More

Small hotel of 16 rooms, two floors centered around an open air courtyard. Entire hotel is beautifully decorated as an authentic Antiguan hotel. Simple, very clean comfortable rooms with shower, wardrobe and a secured, small lockbox type safe in room. No elevator to second floor. Very secure with one entrance controlled by buzzer and several cameras. Breakfast was simple with... More

I'm a little confused by the raving reviews. The hotel is overpriced for its location and level of service. It's a solid 15 minutes to the center of town and is located on the opposite side of most of the restaurants and amenities, meaning it's 20 minutes from things. In Antigua, this is quite a distance, as it's a really... More

Let me answer you kindly. It is clear you wrote your review with anger. Your communication was received by our front desk a little tardy, when we had already sent your shuttle to the airport (We did sent you a transportation). You changed it by email with so short notice being hard for us to resolve… by phone would have... More

This hotel is a few blocks northeast of the center, but it is definitely worth the walk. The staff could not be more friendly. It boasts a beautiful roof top view where you can enjoy sunrise or sunset. Also, you will find courtyards at every turn. The wifi didn't reach my room, however, taking a seat on the balcony did...

During the second day of our Antigua stay, we found ourselves without a hotel reservation at a place we'd booked weeks before. Frantically we started asking local people if they knew of a hotel nearby. Since we were in the outskirts of Antigua, we were pointed to Candelaria Hotel. This place is a hidden gem. It's far away enough from... More

The first room we got the first night was really nice, large, with a big bed on the 2nd floor but it was close to the stairs and then next door neighbors were playing TV really loud late night and early in the morning so our sleep wasn't very restful that night. It wasn't the hotel fault but the neighbors.... More

Beautiful hotel, beautiful rooms, very polite, helpful staff! The only negative I have is the rooms are not air conditioned but the manager did supply us with a fan! Lots to do in the town of Antigua & the hotel staff are more than happy to assist with suggestions of places to visit.

Our mission group stayed at this lovely hotel. It is very secure and safe for travelers. The rooms where nice and comfortable. The interior court yard was charming and relaxing. The patio on top of the hotel has a spectacular view of the town.
