“Clean, convenient location, cute courtyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

My friend and I stumbled upon this hotel while walking near Parque Central and asked about their prices. We were immediately charmed by the nice sized courtyard with rocking chairs, rustic fountains, and wifi throughout the place. They gave us a "special deal" right on the spot for a double room (2 beds for 2 people) with its own bathroom for $40 on a weeknight. Not bad at all! They granted our request to see some rooms. They have a little rooftop garden through a spiral staircase. Also breakfast looks pretty comprehensive and delicious (scrambled eggs, ham, beans, pancakes, bread, juice, milk, yogurt); coffee was so so and we went to a cafe for it instead. Two complaints I have about this place: 1) On the day we checked in, they had no records of us. Thank goodness we had our receipt with us, and the nice gentleman took us to our rooms immediately; 2) sadly, the room he took us to was not the spacious, two double beds room the lady who registered us promised. He was very patient with us and showed us a few other rooms and we eventually picked one.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #6 (or 7? I don't remember exactly) with a double bed and a single bed; it was...

July 9, 2012. A nice clean and well ordered hotel. Very helpful staff. Quiet and rooms were kept clean and tidy. Very impressed. It is the second time I have stayed there and will do so again and again. Good hotel with bargain prices.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Just got back from a two-week tour of Guatemala; we spent three nights in Antigua and really enjoyed our stay. The Casa Rustica was a good choice for us. The mid-range price was affordable and the central location was convenient. We had all the hot water we needed, the room was clean and nicely decorated and the staff was friendly and helpful. Our room gave onto a bright semi-private terrace complete with a spiral staircase that lead up to the roof. From the rooftop tables we had a view of the entire city and surrounding volcanoes. It is quite breathtaking.

We highly recommend this hotel with only one reservation: there was loud, pounding music on Friday and Saturday night. We felt deceived when all the warning we were given was an apologetic note on the back of our room door. I suppose that all down town mid-range hotels battle with the same problem. For the second night we bought earplugs and slept with the fan on for white noise. In any case, we would readily stay at Casa Rustica again, it's a nice place.

We stayed at Casa Rustica for 2 weeks while doing a spanish course, and enjoyed the stay even though the weekend noise was a nightmare. Walls and windows in Guatemala are far from soundproof, so if you do stay here during weekends, make sure you bring good earplugs.
Rooms are a bit small and dark, but very clean. They have a kitchen where you can make your own food, which we really enjoyed when staying there for so long. There are 2 large dogs that live in the reception, so if you are allergic or just not fond of dogs, avoid this place. The pool table was also a nice treat, but we had to pay to use it, which was annoying since we already payed to stay there. That aside, the staff is nice and the location is perfect.

The title says it all, but it's still good value if you like loud music from the bar/hostal across the road; Tuesdays = ladies night, Fri and Sat it goes on longer and louder. Oh, and the Salsa teaching next door could irritate you if you did not have the foresight to bring earplugs.
The dogs are a bonus. Nice view from the roof.

Samll rooms, slightly larger than you average postage stamp but a very quite location in a noisy city. We stayed for 3 nights including the weekend and also at their sister hotel casa del parque (CDP very noisy) Good location near the main square.
Slight warning for those who do not like large dogs (we do) their are three wandering around at their leisure in the reception area and pretty much have the run of the place.

Room Tip: Room 9 is very small think postage stamp

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights last week. We have been travelling for 3 weeks in this part of the world and have been spending around $50 per night on accommodation and the Casa Rustica has been the worst value for money so far.

The pro's are its in a good location, it's very clean and the vey safe.

The negatives are the rooms are tiny, buy the time we put our bags on the floor there was no where else to move. The water coming out of the shower was warm at best. But worst of all it's two doors down from a Irish Bar that is opening until 1am and the music is crazy loud. Its like the party is in your room.

The final bad point is, if you want to pay by credit card, they are charge a whopping 10% extra.....I'm used to paying 2 to 3% but 10% is crazy. This is part of a group of hotels in Antigua so I assume they all charge the 10%.
