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.

Room tip: Pick a room on the second floor!
Date of stay: December 2014

This is truly a hidden gem in Antigua! I am certain there is no better value for the money in the whole town. The rooms were modest, but hands down the cleanest we have ever stayed in! Breakfast was hot and fresh each morning and quite adequate for the day. Staff was friendly and always right there to unlock the door to let us in. Though located a few blocks from the attractions of downtown Antigua, we always felt safe even walking back after dark. We will most definitely stay here the next time we visit our friends in Guatemala.

Mid-priced, spotlessly clean, friendly, good breakfasts, stunning volcano views from the second floor. The walls are a bit thin, but the place is pretty quiet overall, especially for it's "urban" location. Speaking of the location, Antigua is a very safe town that stays lively after dark, but keep in mind that the hotel is a 15 minute or so walk from the main square. We liked being a bit removed from the hustle and bustle - you feel a bit more local and less like one of the tourist masses away from the center - but the slightly long walk home is something to consider if you intend to stay out late in a different part of town. Also, use their driver to get in from the GUA airport if you arrive late in the evening like we did. He was right on time, reasonably priced, and we were able to pay the hotel for the service at check out- extremely efficient and convenient.

Room tip: Choose a second floor room!!!!!!!!

We recently returned from a trip to Guatemala, staying three nights in this comfortable, convenient, and efficient hotel. The hotel staff is welcoming, helpful, and watches out for our safety in all matters. The rooms are very clean and conducive to rest/relaxation and they are quiet. The view from rooms on the second level is beautiful. (I often rose early to sit on the porch, meditate on the volcano view as well as to read). The walk to the main square is easy and close---about four blocks--and conveniently located near good restaurants and shops. (Don't miss Fernando's Kaffe and Chocolate!) The staff can arrange rides and even pick-ups from the airport in Guatemala City for groups on tours or missions. I highly recommend this gem of a hotel whenever you travel to Antigua.

Room tip: I always stay on the second floor for the view!

Casa Florencia Hotel has provided our groups with hospitable, clean, safe.....and beautiful accommodations for several years. While not far from the main square, it is quiet. Sitting in the little breakfast area, looking down the inside garden, listening to the fountain, a wonderful way to prepare for and reflect on the day. Couldn't be better.
