“Everything, is excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2011

I stayed here for a week and I'm so glad I chose this hotel! I was looking for somewhere quiet and relaxed! I found it. The views are simply breathtaking, a backdrop of Volcan Agua with an old church in front. Everyone here at this hotel is so nice aswell, making your time here even more special! Orfa, who runs reception is simply willing to do anything to make your stay pleasurable, and Dona Aura is always making sure the place look spotless! Even the night guard holds you up for a friendly chat! A kitchen makes it super economical to stay more than a few days. The hotel is about 2 blocks from the park. Thanks everybody for making my time in Antigua so nice!

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs have really nice views!

We stayed here based on the reviews we read in Trip Advisor & are glad we did. The driver was at the airport in Guatemala City waiting for us when we arrived at 10:30 pm, & was very courteous. The beds were comfortable. The entire place was immaculate thanks to the hardworking & ever cheerful housekeeper who greeted us each
Morning with "buenos dias". We felt very safe, & as others have said, the location could not have been more convenient. A swimming pool is available for patrons use at nearby hotel for a fee of $5 per person. Our only problems? 1-We had trouble getting hot water from the shower, & the staff responded immediately when we brought it to their attention. The water was then tolerably warm, though not hot. 2- If you're staying on a Saturday night, bring earplugs. The bar next door had live music that played till midnight-with the earplugs we were able to sleep thru it.
Another plus, especially for the budget-conscious, a small kitchen is available just off the courtyard--it has a stove, a microwave, and refrigerator. I would happily return to this hotel in the future!

We had breakfast at Doña Luisa our last morning in Antigua and it was the perfect choice. They draw you in with the wonderful smells emanating from the onsite bakery, plus the courtyard setting is classic and lovely. The breakfast we chose was french toast made with cinnamon bread served with syrup and/or honey; we added some of their delicious house made yogurt. The prices were reasonable and we bought a loaf of their delicious wheat bread on the way out the door. Highly recommended!

I stayed at this facility with several friends while visiting a church in Antigua. I had a single room with private shower for $33. per day. Breakfast was an additional $5. per day. The breakfast was prepared each day and included juice, fresh fruits, coffee, bread, eggs, pancakes, French toast, , bacon and ham, on various days. The rooms opened to a hallway and were, thus,not directly exposed to the sunlight. They were not air conditioned, but this did not appear necessary. A fan was provided in each room and, for me, provided adequate cooling. The hotel was within walking distance to the center of town, the bus station, the bank, the park, restaurants, night clubs, etc. The entire staff was cordial, helpful and very accommodating. Same day laundry service was available. The rooms were cleaned and made-up daily. A warm but not hot) shower was provided. All-in-all the Hotel was an excellent value for the price.

I was at another one of there hostels around the corner and it filled up so they sent me to Posada Dona Luisa. I had only booked my room for a day. I will write on both of them.
This hostel is very clean the rooms are clean the baths are also clean.
They are near the town center as well. The best part is they have a kitchen and it is clean and free to use.
Staff was nice and the front has a gate and a night watchman.
We are traveling with 2 small dogs and it was NO problem.
Both hostels have WiFi
They also have an upper scale hotel in town.

If you didn't know this hotel was there, or did not see the sign...you would never find it. But enter through the gate and wooden door into a small lobby that continues to a pleasant courtyard with plants and character. Breakfast is served here each morning. Very tasty. Four rooms on the first level and four more up a winding set of stairs. Very nice people operate this hotel. If I ever go back to Antigua, I'll plan to stay at Posad Dona Luisa!
