I picked Hotel La Catedral based on its prime location & after reading other reviews. I have to say it really was excellent as expected/ the pictures don't do justice. The staff we met were all courteous and very helpful and the style/decor is lovely ..... We plan to come back soon & spend longer! The rooms are individually decorated,... More

I stayed here for 10 nights overall, with a 2-night gap in the interim. The hotel grounds are beautiful: a glorious garden downstairs surrounded by plants and trees. Upstairs: a terrace which overlooks the volcanos and the town. Every detail of this hotel has been meticulously planned and the result is a gorgeous place to stay. The plants are constantly... More

This is such a superb place to stay if you are in Antigua, for several reasons: 1) It is a block from the Parque Centrale and the Cathedral, the main focal point of Antigua. From the doors of the hotel, you can get a grand view of Vulcan Agua on one side and the Cathedral on your other side. 2)... More

Excellently located directly to the right of Saint Joseph Cathedral, this is a perfect, unique hotel that provides you with a central location at a very fair and reasonable price. Typically a hotel of this quality in Antigua would be far more expensive, taking into account the location, the gorgeous interior, the comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms, the delicious breakfast,...

The room was nice and not a typical holiday inn room. It was special but didn't have that 'special' price to go with it. I loved the shutter style doors that opened up to the garden where breakfast was served. Admittedly the walls are thin and I could hear a fella next door clearing his throat - - - a... More

Beautiful hotel in a great location - only one block from the main square. Inner courtyard is beautiful and really quiet. Rooms are very well done and fairly quiet from the street. Breakfast was very enjoyable and there is a new terrace on top that gives some views of Antigua. Will definitely return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel La Catedral is an authentic Spanish Colonial house, originally built as part of the "Palacio de los Capitanes Generales" in the center of Antigua, Guatemala. Its construction began in 1558. The space was rebuilt in 1754 and it was used as the residence of the General Capitan. The hotel is located one block from the Central Park and the Cathedral (Catedral de Santiago). It is within a minute or two walking distance from many restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and Spanish Colonial ruins. As one of the original structures in Antigua, Hotel La Catedral preserves its charm and elegance and it has been completely restored to bring you all the comfort and rest you're looking for during your stay. It has a very cozy and romantic environment, just like Antigua itself. The hotel has 8 rooms with a King Size bed or with two Full Size beds. Each room individually decorated to give you a slightly different feel each time you visit us. All of them are equipped with Flat Panel TV set, DVD Player, Cable TV, Security Box, Wireless Internet (at no additional cost), telephone and alarm clock.
