My son and I just returned to California from a two week trip in Guatemala. Originally I had planned on spending the first night in Guatemala City and our second and third nights in Antigua at Casa Cristina. I had found Casa Cristina in the Moon travel guide to Guatemala and reserved a room online. However when I started researching shuttles to hotels in GC from the airport I found it was easier just to go directly to Antigua so I contacted Casa Cristina and luckily they had the room available for our first night in Guate. We stayed in room 7, two double beds, on the second floor. The room was clean, as was the entire hotel. The staff was always friendly and helpful. They arranged shuttles, gave restaurant recommendations and directions to places in town. We liked our first few days there so much that we ended up coming back and spent the last three nights there before we headed home. In contrast, we spent one night at a hostel in town on a busy street and although it was $15 cheaper per night it was noisy, the sheet was gossamer thin from having been washed so many times and the shower barely got luke warm. We couldn't wait to get back to Casa Cristina. They also have a nice terrace on the roof where we hung out one night and watched the lightning flashes across the night sky.
