This is the oldest purpose-built hotel in Antigua, dating from the 1920s. It's 20-some rooms surround a traditional courtyard. I've been returning here for years. The rooms are traditionally furnished with modern bathrooms. It's quiet enough at night. Location is ideal, 2 or 3 blocks east of the city's main square. The restaurant offers only breakfast, and with a limited... More

We've been going to Guatemala on mission-trips for the past several years and always stay in Antigua for a few days before going to work. We've found the Aurora Hotel to be a great place to stay -- centrally located, quiet, large rooms, and a great staff. Have already booked again for this November!!

This is a very beautiful hotel, with clean rooms, comfortable beds, and warm showers. The courtyard is graced with beautiful gardens with a fountain in the middle, and it exudes a quiet and quaint atmosphere. The staff is very helpful, and handled the ground transports not only to and from the airport, but also our transports to and from another... More

This place was great. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It has a great location with walking distance to many activities. The rooms are so nice and filtered water is provided in the room. The main area is beautiful and peaceful. Definitely stay here!

I LOVE this hotel: beautiful, quaint, very nice, super clean, satisfying breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, close to everything, comfortable, accommodating, restful courtyard with exquisite flora, and best of all--the people there, especially Manuel, Julia, and Flor, all so very helpful and eager to please. If I ever go back to Antigua, I will definitely stay there again! (BTW,... More

Of the countless hotels that I've stayed in, all over the world, in almost 45 years of travels, Hotel Aurora is the one that I've cherished in memory. I first stayed there in 1990, and again in 1991, in all a total of 12 days. The early 1990s were a deeply unsettled time in Guatemala, but the Aurora was a... More

Unlike others, I did not find the garden gorgeous. It looked a bit unkempt to me, with little sense of design. The hotel is fine, and the location is excellent. Breakfast (continental)decent, although a hot dish costs extra. Rooms a bit old fashioned, but comfortable. Be aware they are grouped around the central courtyard and one morning I could hear...

We had room 12, which when we first arrived seemed extremely noisy since we had a corner room with windows to the street on each side. We mentioned our concerns to the front desk and they kindly apologized and said they were unable to move us since they did not have a room large enough for us (there were 3... More

Our group of 7 stayed at the Hotel Aurora mid-January and it was a wonderful stay. The rooms are classical and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but immaculately clean and perfectly suitable for my son and I. The courtyard is open-air with beautiful flowers and shrubs. There are recliner chairs for sitting in the sun. The rooms themselves have a TV (ours... More

The Aurora, for its price range, is a good value for Antigua. Not the cheapest, but certainly not the most expensive. The Aurora has large comfortable rooms that are well appointed. The bathrooms are top notch. They have an inner courtyard/garden that is a perfect place to spend some down time. Well located and a five minute walk to the... More
