The room itself was nice and hot water in the shower. People were nice and very helpful. Breakfast were good and the garden really nice. However, the room was very raw and thereby sleep not optimal. Not great value for money.

Excellent little hotel close to the main square. Very friendly service. Very comfortable. Roadside rooms are a little noisy, but that applies to all hotels in Antigua because of its quaint cobbled streets. Recommended.

My stay at Hotel Catedral was amazing. The hotel itself was absolutely beautiful and the service was spot on. The staff was always nice and willing to please. The included breakfast was always delicious. I plan on staying there again in the future for sure. While a little pricy, well worth it.

We've stayed here the last three years when in Antigua. Beautiful property, half block from central park and easy access to good restaurants. Staff is excellent, helpful, caters to all our needs and always pleasant and cheerful. Breakfast is excellent. Room is very good. Will book it again next year.

Hotel la Catedral is a small boutique hotel that caters to your every needs. The staff is a wonderful group of people who have been there for years. I've stayed there twice now, and I feel like family when I am there. The gardens are beautiful, but the staff makes you feel like family.

The hotel is small, only 8 rooms but the small courtyard and the decorations are lovely. My wife and I really enjoyed the time there. Our room was small but quaint and nice. The bathroom compensated for the size of the bedroom. It had a nice sink and a big shower. In general, the decoration was just beautiful. Despite of...

The hotel is centrally located. The rooms are nice, the beds are comfortable. The price is high and the service is the worst.

We enjoyed our 3 nights at Hotel Catedral. We were met at the airport as arranged. The room was comfortable and even though it faced the road, the double glazing ensured that we got a good nights sleep. Prices in Antigua are much higher than in the rest of Guatemala but we felt that the hotel was expensive for what...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel La Catedral is an authentic Spanish Colonial house, originally built as part of the "Palacio de los Capitanes Generales" in the center of Antigua, Guatemala. Its construction began in 1558. The space was rebuilt in 1754 and it was used as the residence of the General Capitan. The hotel is located one block from the Central Park and the Cathedral (Catedral de Santiago). It is within a minute or two walking distance from many restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and Spanish Colonial ruins. As one of the original structures in Antigua, Hotel La Catedral preserves its charm and elegance and it has been completely restored to bring you all the comfort and rest you're looking for during your stay. It has a very cozy and romantic environment, just like Antigua itself. The hotel has 8 rooms with a King Size bed or with two Full Size beds. Each room individually decorated to give you a slightly different feel each time you visit us. All of them are equipped with Flat Panel TV set, DVD Player, Cable TV, Security Box, Wireless Internet (at no additional cost), telephone and alarm clock. All bathrooms are stylishly and individually designed with antique marble. All toiletries and hair dryer also included. All our rates include, Full a La Carte Breakfast, free international calls to designated countries (time limited) and private parking in the same location. In the same facilities we have an equipped private meeting room and a Family Lounge-Bar. We also organize and coordinate your Tour needing's to any other beautiful destinations as well as transportation from and to Guatemala City. ... more   less
