Hotel was overbooked during our 1 week stay doing mission work in nearby village, but no problems; he even had another water heater installed so plenty of hot water. We had our breakfasts and dinners served to us at hotel and it was all excellent.

This hotel is absolutely wonderful. Amongst all its wonder, though, the staff deserves the lion's share of recognition. Last week, when I stayed there, every staff member went out of the way to make me feel at home. I can honestly attest that I have never encountered a more helpful and friendly staff. I miss the staff as though they were best friends.
Other benefits include the great architecture and the wonderful view from the roof. The building is fashioned to evoke feelings of the city's Spanish heritage. The center courtyard provides a sanctuary for contemplation and relaxation. The roof allows a panorama view of surrounding mountains and three volcanoes.
Everyone who stays in Antigua should stay here.

We have now stayed in this hotel three different times. The staff couldn't be nicer and more helpful! Anything that we needed was provided with a smile and Rooms are clean are inviting. The atrium is spectacular with a fountain and beautiful flowers. Evenings and early mornings on the rooftop provide a wonderful way to begin or end a day in Antigua---highly recommend this hotel to travelers.

The hotel building is an absolutely gorgeous structure with a beautiful view in the courtyard and from the rooftop. The service was outstanding, always willing to go the extra step to make everything as comfortable as possible. Everything was extremely clean and organized. The location is only a few blocks from the center of town, far enough away to be quiet yet close enough to enjoy. I really loved staying at La Candelaria Hotel and cant wait for the next opportunity to visit again.

Room Tip: Due to the historical design of the Hotel the rooms near the entrance are a bit noisier than the one...

I have just returned from my fifth stay at La Candelaria Hotel in Antigua. They have consistently provided outstanding hospitality and service over each of my visits there. As other reviewers have stated, the hotel staff make you feel like you are at home away from home. We are received like family and welcomed with open arms.

The accommodations are large, the showers are hot, the food is excellent and the view from the terrace is outstanding. It is a short walk to many of the sites of Antigua or just a great place to relax and reflect with a view.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Antigua area.

We recently stayes at the Hotel Candelaria hotel in June 2013 when on a mission trip to Guatemala. We really enjoyed our stay, especially the hotel staff who really went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and that everything was taken care of.
One notable feature about the hotel is that it has all handmade furniture, doors, window shutters, etc.. and is really impressive...worth the stay alone.
Overall, we were very comfortable during our stay at the hotel and enjoyed the food & Guatemala coffee.We would definetely recommend this hotel to others traveling to Antigua.
