This hotel is everything you want in a destroyed town like Antigua, it has the remnants of the convent with the arc and clock. The rooms are large and furbished with the style of the convent. The hallways have fascinating moments from the convent and an altar, the staff change daily flowers and offering.. It is smack in the middle of the town and walking distance to the cathedral, square, restaurants and atm. It is also next door to Nimpot market. On Friday nights there is an amazing duo singing live at the hotel. We never ate at the hotel because the local restaurants are next door. Breakfast was managed via a small kitchen and gas stove, nothing to write home about but they had a decent range. The staff are very helpful on all fronts from early packed breakfast (6.30am) to changing money, but please do not rely on them for tour/travel advice. There are many helpful tour operators, we learnt with hindsight, who will arrange trips for you be it to Pocaya or Chichi or Iximche.
