“Hotel la catedral”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Excellent little hotel close to the main square. Very friendly service. Very comfortable. Roadside rooms are a little noisy, but that applies to all hotels in Antigua because of its quaint cobbled streets. Recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get a non-roadside room

My stay at Hotel Catedral was amazing. The hotel itself was absolutely beautiful and the service was spot on. The staff was always nice and willing to please. The included breakfast was always delicious. I plan on staying there again in the future for sure. While a little pricy, well worth it.

We've stayed here the last three years when in Antigua. Beautiful property, half block from central park and easy access to good restaurants. Staff is excellent, helpful, caters to all our needs and always pleasant and cheerful. Breakfast is excellent. Room is very good. Will book it again next year.

Room Tip: Only six rooms and depends on what size bed(s) you prefer

Hotel la Catedral is a small boutique hotel that caters to your every needs. The staff is a wonderful group of people who have been there for years. I've stayed there twice now, and I feel like family when I am there. The gardens are beautiful, but the staff makes you feel like family.

Room Tip: It is Antigua, so at times, the city is noisy at night. I never had a problem sleeping.

I stayed at Hotel La Catedral with my family for 6 days, and had a great experience! The hotel is beautiful with gardens and wonderful staff who were very kind and attentive to anything we needed. It felt like a peaceful place to relax in the middle of Antigua: it is right next to the central park and within walking distance to countless restaurants, shops, and all that Antigua has to offer. The hotel coordinated rides for us when we had day trips planned and were incredibly helpful with whatever we needed. Breakfast was included with our rooms, and the staff were always ready in the mornings to get us a cup of coffee and a delicious breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be in the middle of Antigua but still have a peaceful spot to relax!

The hotel is small, only 8 rooms but the small courtyard and the decorations are lovely. My wife and I really enjoyed the time there. Our room was small but quaint and nice. The bathroom compensated for the size of the bedroom. It had a nice sink and a big shower. In general, the decoration was just beautiful. Despite of the size of the room, it was quite private since it doesn't share a wall with another room and the bathroom is located in a way that prevents the street noise. Once the curtains are closed, there´s no light coming from outside and one can sleep comfortably for whatever time wish. In our opinion there are two things that constitute an advantage to whoever choses this hotel: the beauty of the place itself and the lovely, caring service of the staff. No complaints about it. On the contrary, the service was excellent. Maco, Jorge and the ladies who helped us during the breakfast were just wonderful. A plus is the fact that is only one block from the cathedral. That allowed us to come frequently to our hotel to put things away or just to rest a little before hitting the streets again. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend and will definitely come back there. We consider ourselves some kind of "experts" in La Antigua Guatemala, that´s why we´re so enthusiastic about this hotel.
Just one suggestion: the tomate sauce and the orange juice could be natural. Those two details will make the breakfast, which is included and "Á la carte" perfect.

Room Tip: There´s a room on the corner (coming from the street the last one to the left) We think it´s the bes...

The hotel is centrally located. The rooms are nice, the beds are comfortable. The price is high and the service is the worst. I waited for 20 minutes for a cup of coffee, nobody came to take my breakfast order which made me have to go outside the hotel. When I mentioned to the person at the desk, he was unconcerned. For what they charge, you should at least get a cup of coffee in the morning. Not my kind of place, never again.
