The room was stuffy the first night but at breakfast we asked for a fan which was delivered immediately. This made the room perfect. Nery, our host is the most caring hotel employee I have encountered throughout the world. He remembers every detail about his guests. Upon walking into the restaurant the second morning he asked, "cafe negro y cafe... More

Great location, welcoming/helpful staff and lovely building. Yet this was one of the most uncomfortable stays of our 4 months travelling across Latin America. The rooms are just too hot and stuffy (they gave us a fan when we asked but it did not make much difference) and extremely cramped. I have no idea why there are two double beds... More

We received a very warm welcome from friendly staff. The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from the lively and attractive central square. It has a lovely colonial feel to it, with two internal courtyards to relax in, along with chairs and settees on the open landings and a lovely roof terrace with great views. The rooms were of...

I absolutely loved it here! It's just full of little corners to relax, read and take in the old world vibe of the hotel. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Roof terrace is amazing. Delicious breakfast. Staff are friendly, smiling and so helpful. So Central- just walk out the door and you are in the middle of it all.... More

This small boutique hotel located in the heart of Antigua was a perfect fit for us. Built around a central courtyard, with an incredible rooftop patio, this hotel was very quiet and intimate. Carlos and Louis at the front desk could not have been more helpful. From arranging tour guides, shuttles to the airport and suggesting places to eat, they... More

Spent 3 nights in Meson de Maria before heading off to Lake Atitlan and Chichicastenango, then back to this great hotel, and same room, for another couple of nights before our long trip home after 7 weeks away. Loved the place, had room 205/206? can't quite remember, but it was a lovely room with balcony on the second floor. The... More

Antigua has changed quite a lot since our first visit back in 2008 - inevitably it has become far more crowded and far more touristy. There are now many hawkers and also people begging and sleeping rough in the main plaza. There are also Range Rovers, Porsche Cayennes, designer dogs and large numbers of heavily armed police. It’s still a... More

Just had a lovely one night stay in this hotel, excellent location, friendly staff and such a beautiful interior! Breakfast was quite small but freshly made pancakes and waffles were avaliable. Great stay!

This hotel has a great location in Antigua. It is close to great restaurants, shopping and historical places. My favorite restaurants nearby were Frida's and a Mediterranean Cafe. Prices are a little high in Antigua when compared to smaller cities in Guatemala but it is worth checking out for a couple days. We also did a walking tour through the... More

I stayed here for 4 nights . Arriving very late after a flight from the UK and they were very friendly. I was amazed by the volcano view the next morning. Room and bathroom good. Breakfasts good and no restaurant but restaurant opposite was excellent. Also no bar, which was surprising, but the hotel provided a beer when I asked... More
