“Nice, secure choice”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Enjoyed a second stay here on a return trip to Guatemala with a work team. After a week in the mountains at a more rural hotel, this was a nice change of pace. The architecture and interior are wonderful, with a peaceful interior open garden. The location is handy to local shopping and dining, and the place seems to be secure. The rooms themselves are a bit sparse, but comfortable and clean. It's not the Ritz, but hey it's not South Beach either.

Room Tip: The rooms off the interior courtyard are a bit more isolated from the street noise, but returning vi...

My girlfriend and I stayed a total of 4 nights at Posada La Merced Antigua and it was a great value. We were traveling on a budget but had to avoid hostels due to their smoking, noise levels, and overall cleanliness. Posada La Merced Antigua has a secure entrance much like all the high-end hotels in Antigua but doesn't cost $90US a night to stay there. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Housekeeping was very prompt and accommodating. The courtyard is beautiful, especially at night when they light all the candles. There is a kitchen available for use with courtyard tables to sit at. There's a computer in the lobby but is very slow so if you need a fast computer i would recommend an internet cafe, there are several nearby. With that said, we had to print some important documents and used the hotel computer for that. It costs 1Q a page. We stayed 3 nights before moving on to flores and then we stayed one more night before we left Guatemala. It was like coming home. Great place at a great value. The rooftop is amazing if you catch the city after sundown. It's a little precarious getting up there so be alert and use caution with small children. see you next time Posada La Merced Antigua!

Room Tip: Front rooms have a great view of the street but can be noisy. Interior rooms are quieter.

This was a great place to stay. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff was amazing. They could always answer my one-million questions I had, Jorge especially. He was always very nice and arranged a trip to Chichicastenango for my fiance and I. The rest of the staff was just as helpful. The location is perfect. You can walk to just about everything from this hotel. The terrace had an amazing view, we enjoyed going up there with coffee and just hanging out on their chair swings. The bed was comfortable. They have wi-fi and that was a big plus for us! I definately recommend this place to anyone who is going to Antigua.

Posada La Merced was simple, but very clean and comfortable. Who spends their vacation in their hotel room anyway? It was a perfect place to lay my head in between days of getting out and enjoying Antigua. Why pay more for a room you won't be spending much time in? It can be a bit noisy if people come in late at night. There is a rooftop with an awesome view. The best part is it is right next to Fernando's Coffee Shop, and not far from the center of town and the market.

We've stayed at Posada la Merced numerous times with large groups and have always been pleased with the price, service, and staff. A great location and wonderful people, who are always accommodating our unique and special requests. Would not think of staying anywhere else!

We stayed there with a large group. Clean rooms, very accommodating, love the little in door gardens through out the hotel. View from the top of the hotel was awesome! We never had any problems with anyone in our group with things missing from their rooms. Staff was always there and very helpful.

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor for more hot water :-)
