If you choose to stay at a B&B for ambiance, then Chez Daniel is Not for you. There is essentially no greenery or garden; no place to rest and relax. The one lounge chair there was torn, and there was no place to get comfortable. We stayed, based on previous reviews, despite the location being an extra 15 minute walk from most of the sites. Unfortunately it was noisy-- while there is music all over the city, which is actually a nice flavor of the culture, we were subjected to the pounding bass of someone's music both nights (Like the stereo coming through the walls of an apartment). Of all the hotels and B&Bs we stayed at in Guatemala, Chez Daniel was the only place I had to use earplugs to sleep. I knew beforehand that there was no real breakfast. I think they use the word "authentic" on the website, but the truth is its simply average coffee and bread (not even fresh!) with Smuckers jam. Sorta takes the B out of B&B. By comparison, we had fabulous breakfasts at the other places we stayed at in Antigua. However, if your goal is a place to do your own cooking -- and that includes breakfast-- and a large clean room, you wont be disappointed. This B&B is best suited for those who plan longer stays, who want to do their own cooking, and want affordability. If you want a beautiful, comfortable environment, restfulness and quiet, an ambiance that you look forward to going to after a full day, and a real breakfast in the morning, go elsewhere.
