We found this hotel comfortable and it has a great central location close to the main square. Good shower, comfortable bed and spacious room. We found it quiet but we were there mid week so not sure what is like in the weekend. Rooms on the upper level have better natural light and are more private - they open on...

I booked this hotel because of the price but I wished i'd spent so more elsewhere. I was in Antigua for an event in Santo Domingo El Cerro wich means after the party was over I got back at 2 am. After walking 3 blocks cause there was no where near and safe to park my car overnight. You better...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay during Semana Santa. The rooms cost a little more than we expected, but this was probably due to the holidays. Staff very helpful and friendly. Older but very clean. This hotel has a very nice area downstairs with tables in a shaded, plant filled, courtyard. It also has a small kitchen for guests...

We stayed in many hotels during our 2 month trip, and this place was one of the bottom 3. Lot of noise during the night from the bar next door, so be aware, especially in the weekend. The staff did their best and were friendly, but limited info was available. Rooms were ok, a bit outdated, but I guess it...

Basic but clean hotel. Staff very helpful. Very close to the square. Avoid Saturday nights. There is a locals night club 200 ft away that plays music until 1-2 am. Bring earplugs on sat night stays. Not sure about Fridays. All other days are no problem...great place to stay.

As others have written, Orfa is wonderful. She pre-arranged for my airport pick up (37US) and it went very smoothly. She will make calls for you or find you the information on something if needed. Consuela is the cleaning person-she is sweet and does and excellent job. My room was number one-nearest the front desk as I was traveling alone....

Posada Dona Luisa was the first hotel we stayed in at the beginning of our trip to Guatemala. It was charming, quaint, pretty and had a great location. Orfa, the hotel manager, was so helpful and she spoke great English! :) It was just two blocks to the main plaza and along the way we had access to Internet stores,...

Only two blocks from the square, I liked the location of this small hotel and found it to be conveniently placed. As a single guy, the room I was assigned was small and the bath even smaller. It suited me fine as it was on the first floor and near the front. If you want to spread out I would...

I spent a couple of nights here at either end of a three week visit to Guatemala. The hotel arranged for a shuttle to pick me up at the airport, so my arrival was stress-free. The rooms are large and comfortable. The hotel is located near several old churches, and the neighborhood has a warm feeling. It is just a...

“You´ll be less than 50 yards from where Bernal Diaz del Castillo wrote his chronicles of the TRUE history of the Conquest, refuting some of the things Hernan Cortez said. Not bad for a man 88 years old who surivied 1000 skirmishes.”

“If unable to make a reservation in one of these hotels, they will do all they can to provide accommodations in another one of their hotels in Antigua. English is spoken and the people are very nice. Antigua is not the safest at night, far from it, so just don't walk around at night anywhere in Antigua, especially alone.”
