My family and I stayed in an apartment very close to here so decided to give it a try for breakfast. We ended up going back every morning for our time in Antigua. The surroundings are beautiful and it is very peaceful. The wait staff are very friendly and helpful. We tried just about every breakfast on the menu and... More

This is a stunning location and accommodation house. Located right under the famous Arch of Antigua, the hotel is in a building that is almost 500 years old. Now the rooms are spacious and the atrium full of plants and a fountain. The decor is excellent and sets a wonderful, historic mood. However - beware light sleepers! The convent includes... More

we liked our room, very reasonable price, very close to everything. A bit too close to everything. It is right in front of the famous Arch, so there are a lot of visitors at the restaurant. There is a lot of noise from the Arch bell. Not a great place for light sleepers. But the staff is very kind, the... More

I spent three nights at this lovely hotel and had a very comfortable, enjoyable stay. The part of the hotel I stayed in had a large open courtyard with lounge chairs, overlooking the 400 year old wall of the original convent. By my door was a smaller courtyard with plants and flowers and hummingbird visits. Faintly I could hear the... More

Stayed here Good Friday-Easter Monday 2016. The perfect location for Semana Santa. The staff is lovely, friendly and extremely helpful. We felt like we were staying with friends or family. The restaurant is also good, and handy. You can't get any closer to the Arch. The draw back about that is the clock does chime if you are a light... More

I felt like I stepped back in time. The decor was authentic and the setting was beautiful. There was a marimba band one night in the lovely courtyard. The location was in the center of everything. The breakfast was delicious and the waiter was friendly and gracious. I loved this place! Totally recommend this quaint hotel.

The coffee (served with hot milk and sugar) was great- the artwork and central plaza were beautiful- location was perfect- and it even has wifi and nice bathrooms! I would highly recommend this little gem of you need a break from touring the city and la Merced church.

This hotel is very nice- the staff are wonderful- the rooms are comfortable and clean- The restaurant is very good. The only thing about this hotel- and they have no control over this- the Bells from the church nearby are very loud and ring at least every hour- But- I still would recommend this place.

Nice location. The internett in our room was living it's own life. The church bells did not bother us. What I did not like at all was that I had booked the room by telephone. I had talked with them two times and asked two times if the breakfast was included in the price and the answer was yes. But... More
