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.

The Candelaria Antigua is a great hotel. It's walking (good walking) distance to many sites and the market place for shopping. The staff at Candelaria were always available and ready to help you in any way. The lush courtyard and fountain were nice to sit around and relax. The view of Agua, Fuego and Acatenango volcanoes from the rooftop were... More

Walking in Antigua is a great and healthy experience, we are glad you enjoyed it. We are constantly trying to teach our staff that solving any situation the best we can, is the cherry on each day...so I am glad you felt it and had a good stay. See you soon. More

We traveled to Antigua to do some humanitarian aid work. We stayed at the Candelabra while in Guatemala. The service was outstanding. We have food sensitivities and the staff quickly learned what we needed and made every effort to make sure we ate well. The hotel is gorgeous with a roof top terrace that looks out onto 3 volcanoes--a very... More

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.

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

Hola and thank you for your kind review. We wanted to get in touch and tell you that now we have signs with advice that other guests are resting at the Hotel.

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
