This is a business hotel geared to hosting conferences with the accompanying clientele i.e. serious people in dark suits, armed security guards and snooty staff. As a foreign tourist I wasn't made to feel welcome. My request for a diner table on the terrace to enjoy the garden atmosphere, for which I was paying $450 for 3 nights single was...

Lovely Guatemalan design rooms around central area with ornamental pool. Only problem with the stay was that there was a walk to another building for meals. Location of hotel perfect for exploring city, easy for walking.

Me and my family stayed here for a weekend. The hotel is beautiful and the food is great. The kids loved the pool, on Sundays they have a kids club. It's walking distance to several landmarks in Antigua. Definely will visit again.
