My partner and I loved it so much at Casa Florencia that we've stayed there both times we've visited Antigua. Casa Florencia is a lovely small hotel with really friendly staff. The hotel is about a ten-minute walk away from Parque Central and it's a four-minute walk away from La Iglesia de La Merced.
Whatever you do, be sure to book a second-floor room. The balcony has stunning views of Volcán de Agua, which towers over Antigua from the south. The rooms themselves are beautifully furnished and kept extremely clean -- it's kind of incredible how much time the cleaning staff spends in the hotel, given how few rooms there are.
The staff is extremely friendly, and they've kindly arranged for taxi rides and given us directions to places around town. The included breakfast is also really great -- bread, eggs, and beans.
One tip -- there are three different WiFi networks at the hotel, and each one seems to be strongest in different parts of the building. Be sure to try them all (including the Me Late Cafe network) to see what works best from your room.
In short -- excellent value for a beautiful stay. We'll be staying there again the next time we're in Antigua.More
