Our group of 16 members of Friendship Force had the entire hotel for a week and we could not have been happier with our choice. Luis and Paulino were wonderful, telling us this was our home while we participated in service projects around the Antigua area. The location cannot be any better being only two blocks from Central Parque and... More

We are so happy that we found Posada San Sebastián! It had just the right combination of local feel and luxury that we were looking for. Framed entirely in local art and artifacts, you know you've really arrived in Antigua when you get there. Beds are comfortable, rooms are private and quiet, everything is clean, and the views of the... More

Staying is gives a real feel of being in an old, special location. Luis is a warm host and his staff is helpful and professional. Plumbing is adequate but will not meet the standards of those who need 4-star comforts. Location is ideal, less than two blocks from central square. Roof deck and second floor lounge areas are both nice... More

We rented a triple room and unlike in other guesthouses here we got a big room with enough space (not a double room filled up with 3 beds). Wonderful garden, stylish decoration and everything works: hot water, wifi, etc. Nice top roof terrace and a kitchen you can use. Reasonable prices. Extremely helpful and friendly staff who recommended us a... More

Fantastic place, with fantastic owner Luis. The best accommodation we had in Guatemala. Everyday cleaning service, kitchen for preparing dishes, fantastic terrace, charmed interiors, silent, located at the historical center of the city. We had everything we need.

Posada San Sebastian has a great location just round the corner from the Parque Centrale in Antigua, and close to the sights, restaurants and bars. The environment in the hotel is fantastic, with amazing collections of all sorts of artefacts artfully curated through the shared spaces and the rooms themselves (I peeked at some others, it's hard to resist). The... More

My stay here was simply, wonderful. Luis was probably my favorite part of my stay. He was so kind and extremely helpful, definitely one of a kind. The hotel was very unique, but if antiques aren't your kinda thing then beware. Our rooms were very clean and absolutely beautiful. The view from the terrace was great, flowers everywhere!!! Price was... More

Not only is this hotel very unique, but the owner Luis is one in a million. Look through some of the photos of the hotel and if you like the antique decor you see (not for everyone) than I guarantee you will love this hotel. The rooftop terrace is a wonderful place to hang out, the location is fantastic, and... More

This unique house is listed in many guide books. The house was unique with many antiques and curiosities. Luis was accommodating. The room was spacious and quiet, but a little dusty. Breakfast was not included. Antigua has numerous hotels and this one is a bit overpriced compared to others.

We stumbled upon Posada San Sebastian after having issues with our accommodation and what a find! Luis welcomed us in with open arms and we couldn't have asked for a better host. As others mentioned, the place is decorated with beautiful antiques and furniture. I can't imagine there is a better place to stay in Antigua. The location is perfect,... More
