“Friendly Place with No Surprises”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2010

The hotel was clean and pleasant. The staff were exceptionally helpful - their English was excellent and they happy to recommend places to go and things to do, and to make any bookings on our behalf - all of which made our stay that much more enjoyable. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the central park and a myriad of restaurants. We ate at a different restaurant almost every meal (many with live music in the evening), and we were never disappointed! If we were going back to Antigua we would definitely stay here.

This is the third time I have stayed here. It has always been very clean and has great security. They also offer free hot coffee and tea. The use of the kitchen is a great bonus. The rooftop terrace is wonderful with a great view of the city. The only negative is that the rooms and bathrooms are small so if someone is really big this could be a problem.

This charming little Posada was recommended to me by a friend who had stayed here several times before. Since I enjoyed my stay so much I chose to stay here a second time on my way back through the city. The rooms are clean and have private bathroom with warm water (which I hear is not always the case in Guatemala). They also have free internet and a computer available which was nice to have. The staff is kind and quite knowledgeable about the city. Make sure you explore the hotel a little and go up to the rooftop terrace. I didn't discover that until my last night there and it would have been fun to see the view during the day. Also be sure to eat at Fernando's next door! Great coffee and wonderful breakfast.

we booked at the last minute and Gerlinde was so helpful
Jorge at the front desk was also very helpful
I have been to Antigua some 20 times since 2004, and would recommend this hotel as a very good and reasonable place to stay

Good value for the money. Make sure you go up to the highest roof for a great view of Antigua and the surrounding mountains. Fernando's next door was great for morning coffee and afternoon Gallo (cerveza). Walking distance to anything you'd want to walk to.

I moved into Posada La Merced for 5 nights after my friends moved on from Antigua. It was such an unbelievalbe find. Really clean rooms, lovely, friendly and helpful front desk staff and a great location at an excellent price. I also felt exceptionally safe there as a solo female traveller.

I would really recommend it and the location is excellent, so close to everywhere. Around the corner is a great spa place, an amazing creperie, a great Salsa school. I could keep going. Do not pass this place up for more expensive options, it ireally is a find...

The hotel is in good location, close to Antigua center. Very simple hotel with no "extras" , the rooms are small and the maintenance is basic but it is clean . The service desk is there for any question and the fact we had all day long internet access and coffee (free) was great for us. Bring your own shampoo as you will get only soap.
Recommended only for people that don't have 'hotel" expectations and need a clean place to sleep at, in a good location and low price.
