I stayed in this hotel during a night out with friends in Antigua. It'd been recommended by others who said it was nice, clean, and a walkable distance from the main plaza.The affordable rates, laundry service, and friendly owners were also major selling points, but when I walked inside, I immediately knew I'd gotten exactly what I'd paid for: bugs, mold, and an uncomfortable night of no sleep.
I wanted to like this place so badly because it is very inexpensive and the friends of friends swore by it, but as we were getting ready, there were roaches actually crawling up from the drains and out of the sink. My friends are much less squeamish than I, so even though I wanted to pack up and leave immediately, we ended up staying the night.
Unfortunately, during the night I noticed a bug (I believe to be a roach) actually crawling across my friend's bed-sheet. I killed it. Needless to say, I got no rest.
If price is your main point, then you'll definitely save a few bucks. However, if you're willing and able to spend a little more for cleanliness, comfort and piece of mind, I would highly suggest doing so! I have never returned to this hotel, though my friends continue to stay here whenever they are in Antigua.
