Lovely location and gorgeous architecture for sure. The room we had was really small and really dark. I'm no expert on boutique hotels, but I'm pretty sure that when they provide a camping lantern in the room in order to see, that's not a good sign. I was glad for the lantern because we really needed it. The bathroom had... More

We had a great experience staying here. AC but didn't need it because the weather was cool. Amazing shower and high ceilings. Comfortable bed. Loved spending a few nights here and walking all around Antigua! Everything is pretty close! Service was nice.

First impression is Woo! But we spent their 2 nights and I can tell that aside of nice interior design this is a 2 star hotel in quality and service. We stayed in a suite (named: don Alvarado) which has 2 floors. The room is very dark and not enough sun light or lamps. The ventilation at the bath is... More

Great location in the heart of historic Antigua. We love El Convento. The Inn had a boutique feel in every way; you'd enjoy staying here regardless of where you were. Very cozy rooms, great service and very good food. Would highly recommend.

One of my best world stays. Excellent waitstaff. Room was big and well apointed. Very quiet surroundings. Not a party atmosphere. Shower was to die for after a walking tour of the city and the hotel restaruant was a pleasure to relax for breakfast (included but limited in menu for the complimentary breakfast). I would recommend many times over.

This is very likely my favourite boutique hotel of all time and I stay here every time I am in Antigua. It is an old converted convent and retains many of its original features and architecture. Original stonewalls and feature fireplaces, cobblestoned courtyards make this little hotel really special. It is also very romantic. The rooms are exquisite, very luxurious,... More

The ambiance and architecture of El Convento complement Antigua perfectly. The details in the art, decor and landscaping were charming and of the highest quality. The service and food were excellent, and the amenities were on par with any western luxury hotel.

We have stayed in a couple of times at this hotel with my husband and never fails. All the rooms have special features and the beds are so comfortable. Los Cabelleros is a pretty spacious room but if you take San Jose room it has a special bid balcony with a little table and a bench. The coffees are spectacular!
