This hotel is simply gorgeous. Everything from the decor to the staff and the breakfast was wonderful. It's a charming boutique hotel, more akin to a bed & breakfast, with the attentiveness to match and a great location, only a few minutes walk to the heart of Antigua. Really serene atmosphere in an old colonial setting. Simply stunning.

If you're going to Guatemala, Antigua, the old capital, is one place you'll probably want to see. And if you go to Antigua, Cissus Hotel is a lovely place to stay. It's a beautifully restored building with "old world charm", beautiful rooms (only four rooms!) and a great location for exploring the city.

This hotel is small and quaint. It only has 4 rooms which allows the staff to tend to their customers in every way. The breakfast is great and they will serve it to you wherever you want. One day we ate on top of our private terrace, the other day we ate in the patio. Delicious! The staff was extremely... More

The Cissus Hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Antigua, Guatemala. This was our first trip to this location and we would certainly return to the city as well as to Cissus. When you enter the gate you enter a very beautiful and quiet environment.

We stayed for three nights at Cissus, and we enjoyed our time there. There are only 4 spacious rooms, with a colonial atmosphere, walking distance from the "plaza central". Perfect if you want to have a traditional touch and like quietness when you go back to your hotel. Service was good, not great, and we did not have lunch or... More

Our stay at Hotel Cissus was arranged by our cousins, long time Antigua locals, which tells you a lot. My wife, adult daughter and I stayed in Studio Suite #2 and it was perfect ! The rooms were large and clean with many amenities. You enter via a 24 hour security buzzer. Walking into the lobby was like entering a... More

Our first time in Antigua, we booked 3 nights in the Cissus Hotel based on reviews here onTripadvisor. The hotel arranged transportation from the airport ($20/person). After winding our way through the traffic jams and pollution of Guatemala City, we arrived in Antigua at the Cissus. A unassuming white plastered facade with the name "Hotel Cissus" in small letters affixed... More

Hotel is in a good location, not far from the centre of town. It has 4 rooms, ours was very nice at the back of the building up a spiral staircase with its own private terrace. The hotel has free WiFi and breakfast is included. The staff are helpful with basic English however there is no laundry service at the... More
