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

We spent three very comfortable nights here. The interior courtyard is gorgeous and so relaxing. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and everyone at the hotel was very nice. They arranged for a taxi to pick us up at Guatemala and bring us to the hotel very late on Christmas night and met us graciously well after midnight. There is... More

Hotel is single story set around a covered courtyard. Lovely gardens and places to sit in the covered area. Ideal location for a walking visit of the town. Good size rooms, rain shower, clean towels and bedding. Soap and shampoo supplied as well as hair drier which I couldn't get to work. Wifi in room. Good breakfast, continental style (coffee,...

I am currently staying at Hotel Aurora in Room 7 which is incredibly noisy, right on the street, and next to a restaurant with a band! Although the setting is beautiful, the breakfasts here are quite ordinary and only include cereal, fruit, toast and yoghurt and if you want eggs you are charged extra. I've stayed here in the past...

This charming central pearl was out last stop in central Guatemala and we loved every minute of it. Great spot in the city of Antigua with superb service and staff. The room were adorable and the venue was really impressive and authentic. Just lovely :)

What a great stay we had at the aurora hotel. It's in a very central location of Antigua. The room was comfortable and the bathrooms are beautiful. My only complaint was it took a really long time for the hot water to heat up. Breakfast was great each morning and we were there with a group of 17 people and... More

I love this hotel! It's full of colonial charm, a beautiful, flower filled courtyard, and lovely grand rooms. Its central location means it's a great place to stay while in Antigua because everything is so close. This is a little bit of old-world Guatemala. Lovely.
