“Lovely Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My bf and I stayed only one night. Wish we stayed longer. It was a lovely hotel with a BEAUTIFUL garden/pool. Staff/host was very attentive. They even packed us breakfast to eat in the shuttle ride leaving the hotel next morning. It's a bit of a walk from the center of town but the weather is always nice, so just enjoy the walk back!

I can't praise enough of this facility. The hotel is built on the remnance of a 1700 century church. Part of the staircase is still visible and the grounds are impeccable with beautiful orchids and many varieties of faunas. Our host Ricardo was accommodating in all our needs and even offered to drive us to the bank to exchange our money. The hotel serves excellent complimentary breakfast and we even enjoyed a private luncheon when friends came to visit. You feel as though you were being pampered in every aspects and we are looking forward to another visit at Hotel Cirilo for our next trip to Antigua.

I have been many places and this hotel ranks right near the top of all the places I have stayed. The setting is tranquil and the rooms are spectacular incorporating the ruins into the rooms and the courtyard itself. If this wasn't enough, the owner was very helpful and was able to assist with my many questions. I honestly at times didn't want to leave the hotel as it was that special of a feeling.

Room Tip: Room #7 where I stayed is probably the best as you have two floors and a fireplace incorporating the...

This seven room hotel is perfectly build around the ruins of an old church. The owners did a fabulous job transitioning from the ruins to the newly build common space and rooms, resulting in the sense you are staying in the ruins themselves. We thought the atmosphere was better than some of the sights around Antigua that we actually paid admission to enter. Although the location is a bit removed from central Antigua, the quiet and tranquility is more than worth the walk or tuktuk ride. The service was great, we ate a light dinner one night when we didn't feel like getting out and it was delicious. We would absolutely stay here again if we are lucky enough to visit Antigua in the future.

We just finished a trip to Guatemala where we stayed at the Cirilo on two different occasions. Everything about the hotel is quality from the rooms to the service. It was a real treat to experience Cirilo and meet the team there. In a bind, we were able to turn to them to help us organize a day hike/transportation when OX Outdoor Excursions failed to show up for our hike. By 8am everything was set up.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

I've been to Antigua numerous times and I love it when I have the opportunity to stay at Hotel Cirilo! They are friendly, helpful and the place is immaculate. Great place to relax after a busy week! The pool is too cold for me but is a great place to read and hangout in the morning with a coffee. The areas around the room can be a bit echo-y and noisy because of the concrete walls but since it isn't a big hotel, people are generally respectful and I haven't experience any issues except by the reception/kitchen area.
