A very wonderful experience all the way around. Very clean and tastefully furnished room at very reasonable rates. Irma and her family are great hosts and create the feeling you are staying with your aunt or long-time friend.
Centrally located near some great restaurants and in the popular historic district. Also, the rooms set back off of the road so you are buffered from much of the street noise.

My wife and I stayed at this place on 2 separate occasions and thought the place was great. We stayed in the junior suite, which opened up on to a terrace with a great view of the volcano and the room was very spacious. Irma is a fantastic host and the breakfast she cooks is amazing. Only negative is that the power points in the room do not work but there are lots of outlets in the common areas which compensate for that. I would highly recommend this place.

Los Encuentros is a great value place to stay, just a few blocks from the central square in Antigua. What really makes it special though is Irma, the brilliant hostess. Irma will go out of her way to make you welcome ... From the tasty breakfasts, general advice, to getting up at 4am to see you safely on your shuttle bus (way above and beyond!) My room there was simple and clean, the shared bathrooms were decent and also clean, and the patio area was good to relax in. But it's Irma who makes me give this place a five star rating.

Hotel Los Encuentros feels more like a homestay than a hotel, which I think is a very positive thing. There are only 6 rooms (in use), all very homely and colourful, it's very quiet (perfect base for Spanish lessons), great big breakfasts included and they have a fully equiped kitchen for use. Bathrooms are only shared. Irma & her husband and son are amazing hosts and do everything for you! We will without a doubt go back, looking forward to it! Carolina & Eduardo

I had the best hostel experience I have had in Latin America at Hotel Los Encuentros. The place is small and intimate because it is also Irma's home -- she serves a good breakfast and she is really really sweet and helpful with anything and everything. I had previously stayed in an apartment in Antigua and had a plumbing problem that I had to pay for out of pocket and Irma gave me lots of advice and recommendations on how to solve the issue most efficiently and at the lowest cost to me. She always made sure to check in to see if I was alright and was lovely company for dinner chats. The place is clean, and only has 5 rooms so it's quiet and peaceful, but perfect especially if you are volunteering or interning at an NGO like I was.
