The outside of my room ($46 USD) was very beautiful but i found the inside of my room was sparse and minimal -- mine had two twin beds if I remember correctly. There was no A/C which wasn't really needed for the heat but it would have been nice to reduce humidity. The windows didn't close entirely so it's not a hermetically sealed bug-free environment : ) I honestly thought $46 was a bit high for the room but that's probably because Antigua was just more expensive than my final destination (San Pedro La Laguna). There was a very strong chemical, antiseptic smell in the bathroom that was bad enough that I considered trying to move into another room even though I was only there for 12 hrs.
The positives were the convenient location, free internet use in their "outdoor lobby," access to filtered water outside your room, and a helpful front desk. I needed to call a school and arrange a taxi for a 3 hr drive and they were quite helpful although my spanish was terrible and their English was only functional so it was still a bit stressful. I also needed to call the driver and school in the morning to coordinate and they let me use their phone and I was charged a very low rate per minute. (my entire phone call was probably 70 cents USD). I don't know what to compare this to since I don't know this area well -- a friend stayed at Cristina hotel which was much cheaper and she thought it was nice. I might check that out next time. The convenience of unlimited filtered water and a computer to use the internet, however, was kinda worth it when I had just landed in the country and needed to take care of some business.....
