Hotel Casa Cristina
Ranked #19 of 75 Hotels in Antigua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Small but comfortable room with a nice view of the main Volcano of Water from our room and the skyline of Antigua from the rooftop terrace. The hotel provides free water, tea, coffee and cookies, as well as wifi.

The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is conveniently located within close walking distance of major attractions and restaurants.

Cons:
The room is very tiny and the bathroom is even tinier. It’s functional but not very comfortable. Like most of the hotels in Antigua, hot water is only available in the shower, not the sink. It has a shower stall crowded into one corner and the water from it splashes under the shower curtain to make a mess on the bathroom floor.

For the same price, I would recommend the Hotel de los Nazarenos, which is right next door and includes breakfast.

For slightly more, try the Merced Hotel just around the corner and connected to the excellent Fernandos Café. The rooms here are bigger and share a small courtyard.

Room Tip: Rooms 11 and 12 are good choices. Both have a view of the volcano and easy access to the rooftop ter...

What an adorable little hotel! The staff is so kind. There is one gentleman who worked there, I often saw him cleaning the rooms. I didn't get his name as I am not fluent in Spanish but I want to thank him for ALWAYS smiling. What a lovely person!

It was very clean here with crisp white linens. There is free coffee and bread every morning in the reception area. My only complaint is that the fist floor was a but noisy as you have to ring a bell to enter the hotel, and if you're on the fist floor you will here this bell at any hour it might be rang. This is a security measure which I appreciated and a simple pair of earplugs solved the problem.

I highly recommend this hotel if you're looking for something mid-range in price that is clean and comfortable!

Room Tip: Higher rooms are quieter.

The rooms and bathroom are clean and the roof garden is beautiful. You can sit up there and look out over the city to the nearby mountains. Three of us were in a room that was very tight quarters and it did not have an outside window, instead we were awaken each night by folks coming into the adjacent room. Not to cavil, but noise from other guests and the steep stairs could be an issue for some folks. On a more positive note, it feels extremely safe and the proprietors are helpful in arranging transportation from the airport and to Lago Atiitilan. From Casa Cristina you can quickly walk to the center of the city or to any sight you might wish to see, yet the hotel is on a small side street that is itself quiet and neighborly. All these positives plus the reasonable cost make this a good place to stay for the budget traveler.

This hotel is in a great location. Try to stay in a bedroom on the second or third floor because the sound of other guests coming and going may disturb you. The rooms are cozy and clean. The staff is great and very helpful. The pricing is reasonable. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We stayed in room #10 which was good.

I stayed in Casa Cristina, and have nothing but wonderful things to say about this cozy hotel at the heart or Antigua. Rosario, Carlos and Manuel very pleasant, helpful, and so funny. We had some great laughs and great conversations, and is always felt so welcome and valued.
Views from hotel are breath taking, everything at the walking distance, it's very safe, clean and secure. I would highly recommend it .

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel kindly arranged a late-night taxi from Guatemala airport for 35USD.

The hotel is in a lovely position, only a minute walk from La Merced.

There is a wifi in rooms although it is a little slow. The roof terrace has a lovely view across the city.

We stayed in room number 11, overlooking Volcan Fuego. The room was quite small although neatly decorated and relatively comfortable. The bed was probably a little hard for my liking.

My main criticism would be the noise in the hotel. If any guests are leaving for 6:00 you'll hear them. Noise seems to travel throughout. Although this is a minor complaint and was solved with a pair of earplugs.

The front desk were keen to help and helped us catch our transfer to Atitlan via the chicken bus.

Great location just a short stroll to plaza santa domingo, calle del arco and parque central. Super friendly and helpful staff. Cosy rooms spotlessly clean. Private bath with plenty of hot water and great water pressure. Roof top terrace with stunning city views. $28 a night. Just can't fault this place I have stayed 4 times now and never been disappointed. Consistently good.
