OUr room was fairly large, with a big comfortable bed, adequate shower, good wifi and quiet. Only place we have stayed in this region where there was no access to filtered water, so we had to buy our own bottled water - very cheap but inconvenient and of course adds to the plastic pollution. The booking site promised a work desk - we did not have one (which makes writing this review a little awkward)
We stayed at Posada Don Diego for 6 nights while staying in Antigua. The room was always clean, the staff was informative of local attractions and nice to deal with. They offer breakfast in the cafe in the front every morning, the Frijoles refritos and Platinos fritos are awesome!
We stayed at Posada Don Diego for 3 nights during a trip to Antigua and Lake Atitlan. It was great. The location was right by the big yellow church :) so very convenient, close to restaurants including the one on site. Monica , the manager, was amazing. She was so kind and always willing to book shuttles for us both from the airport and to Panajachel. Her help to navigate the transportation issue on our first trip to Guatamala made all the difference. We felt it was really good value for the rooms as well.
The hotel is arranged around a small courtyard, with rooms at the back of a cafe. The rooms are small but clean, well organized, and the management is happy to assist you with your stay and organize onward travel. The location near La Merced gives you access to street life and street food in the evenings, and it's just a 5 minute walk to the central park and most Antigua attractions. Overall, a great place to stay
Just across the square from the La Merced church & convent, this is a lovely little guest house, with no frills, but with plenty of charm. There's a cafe in the front that serves great coffee, crepes and pancakes all day, that leads into the back courtyard where the small number of rooms are available. The rooms are very basic, but very clean and comfortable, although there really is just room for the bed(s). Any sitting or relaxing you want to do you do in the courtyard. There's excellent wifi throughout the posada and a water fountain in the cafe to refill your water bottles whenever you want. The bathrooms are narrow, but the water pressure and heat good and although they provide soap, they don't provide shampoo or any other amenity, so you will need to bring your own. The staff are super friendly and go out of their way to help, even getting up at 4AM to let in late (or early?) arrivals. It's in the perfect location in Antigua to see all the sights and close to the transportation hubs for other parts of Guatemala and Central America. A really nice break from standard hotels or B&B's, this is a lovely little find.…
