“Good first stop”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This was our first stop on a month long trip in Guatemala/Belize. Our main reason for taking this hotel was the reviews and the fact that they took Paypal to reserve our room.
They had a van pick us up a the airport in GC. Always nice to see ones name on a placard when arriving late at night in a foreign country.
We would consider this an average room for value compared to other rooms we stayed in. The staff was very helpful and spoke english. The room #11, was clean and had everything a traveller could want: a Wifi desk, a place to put suitcases, coathooks and a decent bathroom with lots of hot water in the shower. There was some wall decoration in the room which gave it some ambience. We particularly liked opening the curtains and window on the first morning and viewing the volcano.
I found the bed to be to hard, but that may be personal choice thing. What we missed most, as we don't stay out late, was place to sit around. The rooftop terrace wasn't set up very well and when we went up it was full of laundry and the benches don't view the volcano. On our two returns to Antigua we chose hotels with courtyards where we could come back during the day and evening and relax, drink a glass of wine, read a book or talk to other travellers.
This isn't meant as a negative review and we are not unhappy we stayed there, it is just upon looking around we found better value options.

Room Tip: Room #11 has a magnificent view of the volcano.

Definitely agree with goshan. We stayed 3 nights, having just arrived in Guatemala. The decor (if that matters to you) is stuck in the 80's but everything was spotlessly clean. Wi fi available in the rooms, tea and coffee free in reception and rolls in the morning if you want a quick snack but lots of great breakfast options in town. Buy yourselves a couple of beers and enjoy them on the roof terrace in the evening.

Room Tip: We booked room 12 after reading the advice here. Worth the bit extra for the outside window with vi...

We stayed here for 2 nights (separated in between by our trip to Lake Atitlan). Both nights we stayed in different rooms and liked both of them. The rooms are clean, the beds were comfortable, and the staff was very friendly. When our shuttle to Panajachel was late, the caretaker asked me for a contact person and called him to find out what's going on. The location of the hotel is great - near Merced and 5th Ave (where the famous Arch is). They have a rooftop with the lookout to the entire city and Volcano Agua. If you are staying at the top floor, please keep in mind that there is no elevator and the stairs are steep.
Overall, this is a great and affordable place in lovely Antigua.

I am writing this as we are checking out of Casa Cristina after a week stay. We are so sorry we have to leave!
The hotel is in a great location on a quiet street. Everything is sparkling clean. The staff was very accommodating in arranging excursions and transportation for us. Absolutely the best value in Antigua!

Stayed for just two nights and found everthing just fine. Quiet room, comfortable bed, hot water plenty of thick towels, extra blanket, helpful owners..... Free water and coffee with snack breakfast.
The hotel is well situated in a quiet part of town. I had forgotten how much i liked Antigua . I have stayed in other places but i would certainly come back here, it's very clean too.

Room Tip: Room 12 is good but i did not use others.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Antigua. It was super clean, all the staff are very friendly and there is a beautiful terrace on the roof with excellent views of the city and volcanoes. Although the hotel isn't right in the city center, you can walk just about anywhere you need to go. And it's location on a quiet side street means you get a calm and peaceful place to stay. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the street and we were never woken up by traffic noise! Free purified water and coffee all day long. It's definitely with staying here!

Lovely compact hotel close to everything - near La Merced, 5 min walk to Parque Centrale, lots of restaurants nearby and coffee + integral buns fresh each morning in hotel. Rooms are basic but very clean, nice staff!

Room Tip: rooms all seemed pretty equal, as roads are quiet through the night. Firecrackers always go off, so...
