“Very Very Good!!!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

i stayed here recently and enjoyed my time wholeheartedly. The hotel itself is lovely with beautiful lush gardens. The people who work there are very nice and very helpful, Patricia at the front desk in particular. i asked for a quiet room and got one!! The place is a block from Parque Central and walking distance to anything you may want or need. The prices are very good as well.....this is my hotel when i am in Antigua.....I had an excellent stay here and intend to return.

I stayed here with a group of friends for Santa Semana last week, and absolutely loved it. The staff let us into our room as soon as it was ready, which was wonderful, because we'd just hoped off an overnight bus from Flores.
There were five of us staying in the one room, which made it very affordable, and the double beds were big so that sharing wasn't a problem. The beds were also very comfortable, with good quality sheets and pillows.
Because there were so many of us, we were constantly bugging the staff for more towels, directions, recommendations, translations, etc etc, but they never failed to provide prompt service with a smile. It was the service at this hotel which really made it stand out! On our final day, we had a late bus to catch, but they let us delay check-out until it was absolutely necessary.
The location was fabulous, being really close to the central square and easy walking distance from everything we wanted to see. We saw everything in Antigua on foot, and only used cars for those activities which took us out of town.
A few people have said that the breakfast here was nothing special, but we didn't try it - there are so many wonderful cafes and restaurants nearby that there was no need!

We returned to the hotel this year after a pleasant stay on our last years trip. It's location, friendly staff, nice gardens and clean rooms make for a reasonably priced stay.
The posted prices were a bit higher this year, but we were given the same rate as before.
We stayed in room #8 , so had access to what seemed like our very own garden table.
We concur with the previous reviews and would stay when we visit again next year.

Room Tip: I would choose a room at the back, they are quieter and you don't hear the rolling suitcases in...

We stayed in Room 15 at this hotel for a week while studying Spanish at the Christian Spanish Academy, which is very close by. We originally picked the hotel based o its proximity to the school as well as the central park and also because it was a good price. It turned out to be an excellent choice. The hotel is not luxurious -- the room is spartan, but functional. We always had enough hot water in the bathroom and the small TV was adequate for watching news channels (BBC, CNN) as well as local channels. There is a rooftop terrace with a nice view that's open until 10pm at night.

The hotel has a nice garden up front and the corridors have tables and chairs where we could sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea any time of the day -- the hotel offers complimentary tea/coffee and water. We often sat around in the garden and enjoyed the nice afternoons with a cup of tea.

The staff is excellent -- at the front desk we were always greeted warmly by Leidy and Rocio. Each morning we had an excellent breakfast served by Alba and Claudia. Some days it was a buffet with a wide selection of dishes. On other days, when there were not enough guests for a buffet, we ordered Desayuno Chapin (Guatemalan breakfast) the previous night and we were always served breakfast on time the next morning (that was important for us because we had classes starting at 8:00 am).

The hotel has a great location on 3rd street near 6th avenue. The central park and 5th avenue (Los Arcos) is just a short walk away. And continuing on 3rd street towards 6th avenue and beyond brought us to the central market.

All in all, we consider Hotel Casa Antigua an excellent choice and would pick this hotel again the next time we come to Antigua, Guatemala.

Room Tip: We had room 15, which was way in the back. It seems rooms farthest from the entrance would be quiete...

We stayed 7 nights at this typical Antigua hotel that is small-ish, all on one level, with the exception of the roof-top terrace. Rooms are clean and simple, but comfortable, with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Beds are fairly firm and the TVs offer local channels, channels from other parts of Latin America, along with a handful of English language channels. The staff is wonderful...very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We felt safe in the hotel at all times. There are three beautiful courtyards in the hotel, the one closest to the entrance being the nicest. The breakfast is quite good, as well. For a small fee you can choose from a typical Guatemalan breakfast ("chapin"), a continental or American. Complimentary coffee, tea and purified water are available 24 hours/day.

Lastly, the hotel is in a great location, just minutes from the central park and some good shopping nearby. We highly recommend this place and would stay here again. (At night, the area can be a bit noisy due to clubs and bars. Clubs close at 1 am though and it quiets down after that, except for the occasional rooster at 5 am...but this part of Guatemala's charm!)

Room Tip: Choose rooms toward the back of the hotel, where it might be a little quieter...rooms 9 and 13 are g...

In general hotel pricing in Antigua is "tourist" impacted...pricing of many properties are way out of line for what you get.
That having been said this hotel seems to have a better grasp on reality with at least a willingness to moderate their initial asking prices.
So, we enjoyed the courtyard setting. Very clean and quiet. Lots of hot water, even in the sink. Free coffee and tea available all day. Friendly staff. The room was modest size which is not a problem for our "minimalist" lifestyle. Super central location, a block from the plaza and 3 blocks from the local mercado.
If you're budget travelers hang here a night and look for other options the next day without carting around your luggage.

Room Tip: "ask for a lower price for the "smaller" rooms
