I am absolutely in love with San Rafael! I am staying here now as I type this- just in awe of the service of the people here and the level of detail in the beauty of the deign and atmosphere. We are strategically located right by the famous arch and just steps away from Central Parque.
My favorite clothing store to shop in in Antigua (I shop there every time I'm in town) is just around the corner- Shooga- so that's dangerous but convenient :).
The room is just gorgeous with a fire place and king size bed, and beautiful high ceilings and design. The bathroom and shower are to die for, and the details for the furniture design are rustic and beautiful!
Not to mention the fresh flowers they have here in my room as well as the welcome drinks they brought me. Also, the breakfast served in the morning was so much more than I ever expected. I was sure I would have a simple continental breakfast but it was a first class meal, with many options from Signature poached eggs with pesto and deliciously flavored hash browns, homemade jams and rustic bread, fresh fruit and yogurt with homemade granola and honey, and DELICIOUS Guatemalan Coffee.
I'm staying in Room No. 7. Outside my door is a beautiful courtyard with a fountain pool and chairs, so I can sit outside and sip coffee- wifi works throughout the place, so that is nice as well. And the people here are truly at your service.
I am in heaven and WILL be back!! Thank you San Rafael! :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The San Rafael, which opens following a three-year restoration, incorporates the remains of an early structure significantly altered in the nineteenth century. The recent restoration preserves the form of a grand, traditional colonial home with its brick, stone and stucco construction; two courtyards; antique tile roofs; and three water features (including a dramatic wall fountain). Besides the furnished patio where one can enjoy a leisurely breakfast while gazing over the garden, guests will appreciate the elegant and lofty sitting and dining room, the perfect space in which to sip a glass of wine, sit before a roaring fire, or catch up on emails and correspondence. Entering through the gates of the San Rafael, visitors enjoy a sweeping view of the first courtyard with its two fountains and richly varied plantings: Italian cypresses, ficus trees, and the colorful blossoms of native plants. The hotel office and reception are conveniently located off the entry vestibule, where newly arriving guests will be greeted with a welcome beverage, and hotel residents may seek advice on touring the city, securing reservations at Antigua's finest restaurants, or making arrangements for a private excursion. Breakfast is a special occasion here, guests enjoying it while seated around the courtyard or in the dining room. For those fond of coffee or tea upon awakening, and before sitting down to breakfast, complimentary self-serve beverages are available in the courtyard each morning. The breakfast menu includes traditional offerings as well as a rotating array of special dishes. Breakfast is served between the hours of 7:00am and 10:30am weekdays, 11:00am weekends. ... more less
