My wife and I checked in in February this year, the hotel is beautiful, a lot of great details. The place is really charming with a lot of flowers and candles in the public areas. We had dinner, and the food was really really good. I would highly recommend this place.

El Convento was a wonderful place to relax and refresh after trekking all over guate. The bathtubs were big enough to float in. The beds were so comfy. We rented the suite with two levels (had a spiral staircase), and a jacuzzi on a little private terrace. This room was definitely worth the splurge! The restaurant is good, over priced...

We spent several nights here and really liked the location and the ambience, which is that of an older building (the actual convent is across the street), for example the vaulted ceiling in the restaurant having the feel of a refectory. Rooms are comfortable and the restaurant really very good. Location is an easy walk to the city's center. A...

Booked two rooms at this hotel, thru Orbitz, on Dec. 6, 2016, for Feb. 25, 2017. Had email from orbitz earlier this week that hotel had overbooked, therefore, our reservations were cancelled. Will never do business with El Convento and Orbitz again, and I'm telling all the people I know about this. Disgraceful!

Great service, rooms, confort and amenities. This small hotel based on one of the many Spanish conquest convents brings back incredible feelings and superb experience! Enjoy the restaurant, pool deck, indoor jacuzzi!

Guatemala is a troubled country, Antigua is delightful and in no way representative of the country as a whole, that said it is a charming city in every way and El Convento matches that. Spacious, comfortable, charming helpful staff and delicious food. A genuine winner.

This is our second stay in this hotel on this trip ( different room this time). The hotel is an exquisitely restored old convent which is very well maintained. The internal gardens are beautiful green spaces with running water. The bathrooms are well equipped with massive showers and the beds are very comfortable. It is well situated for walking round...

We stayed as part of our 3 week honeymoon trip and it was by far the best place we stayed, it's just a shame we only stayed 2 nights! The staff spoke fantastic english and just couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was fantastic with a massive bathroom and own jacuzzi in the room's courtyard. The communal swimming pool...

The outside wall of the property hides a very pretty garden, courtyard, semi-open lounges, a restaurant and pool. The rooms are simply decorated but large. The whole hotel gives a feeling of simple sophistication in style. The restaurant offers very well prepared dishes in the same spirit. A wonderful retreat in this beautiful town.
