Comfortable beds with ample blankets and pillows. A/C, cable TV, large bathroom and spacious tub/shower. Budget priced and we got more than we could have expected for the price. Wi-fi available. Friendly staff. And within an easy walk of downtown attractions and shops.

The location was perfect, right around the corner from the market and grocery store. The employees were great and courteous. The rooms were ok, nothing grand or special, typical Guatemalan hotels. Old looking inside etc...The rooms were hot though. I had to ask for a second fan because it felt like a sauna inside, while the temperature was cool outside.... More

We enjoyed our time here and the place was very clean with good sized rooms. There is a nice roof terrace where you can sit and enjoy the views. There's a kitchen you can use if you want. Some people in reviews complained about it being noisy, this was not an issue for us.

We were happy to find a pet-friendly hotel a few blocks from the main plaza so we were able to visit a lot of Antigua landmarks with our small dog. Rooms are spacious and clean. Other than that, this hotel was overpriced and noisy. Also, there's no free internet because wi-fi signal within reach belongs to an internet cafe within... More

Hi, thank you for your comment even if it is not as true as it seems. We appreciate your comment about the cleanliness of our rooms and the space available but we don't appreciate the assumption you make about our hotel trying to trick people into paying for Wi-Fi since the internet cafe is a totally different business from our...

This posada is an ok place to stay for one night, just don't expect to sleep much. You can here everything that happenens in other rooms. Some rooms do not have any windows. Beds don't smell like if sheets have been washed properly. Internet is not included in the tariff and the staff is quite impersonal and distant. There are... More

Hi Enrica Cocianni, we wanted to apologize if you did not feel at home in our hotel and that you felt that our staff was distant. We would also like to let you know if you did not like the room (since it was a large room) we would have changed you to a smaller one for your comfort. The... More

Has a supermarket two door down and a small kitchen where you can cook and store food. Has a lovely roof top terrace with great views. Staff are all friendly and helpful.

Hi Nat, thank you for your sincere review, sorry if the Wi-Fi being charged for disappointed you and made your stay not as pleasant as you would have liked. We would like to explain why its charged ( the Wi-Fi), first of all it's charged because it's not our Wi-Fi and we don't and cannot control how the owner pleases... More

Posada Don Valentino will lie to you to get your money. We asked twice over the phone if there was construction. They said no. We arrived and they put us in a room RIGHT NEXT DOOR to loud hammering and construction. We were moved to cheaper hotel. The hotels were full in the city. The first room was fine although... More

Thank you for your review, we would like to point out that when the receptionist offered you the room by phone she mentioned that there was a construction going on close to our hotel which you said it was fine and then told them to book the room knowing about the construction. After you were sent to our other hotel... More

This is a cute little hotel in a great location, close to the main square and restaurants. Rooms are basic but clean and functional with a tiny bathroom. The staff were friendly, spoke English and were happy to recommend places to see and restaurants to try. Wi-fi is available, but can be spotty. My two big complaints: 1) If you... More

The rooms were clean, safe, and quiet. The front desk was very friendly and spoke adequate English. There is a guard at night and you will have to show them the key to get back into the room, the guard doesn't speak as much English but is still quite nice. There is also a kitchen, a sitting room with dozens... More

This hotel is run by the same people that also run Casa Rustica and Casa Antiga. If you look at the websites, the same pictures are used and mostly feature Casa Rustica. Its the least expensive of them because of the location, i think, which is several blocks away from the main center - about a five minute walk. Not... More
