Nice location. The internett in our room was living it's own life. The church bells did not bother us. What I did not like at all was that I had booked the room by telephone. I had talked with them two times and asked two times if the breakfast was included in the price and the answer was yes. But...

The rooms are a bit dark but great location! We had 12 rooms booked for daughter's wedding and it was a great central point for everything Antigua. Breakfast each morning was great but had to get used to the church bells ringing at random times.

I thought this hotel was interesting. It was an old convent. The rooms are big but a bit musty. I gave this a very good rating because of the quaintness. Rooms surround a courtyard and one side is a restaurant which at times was loud. Pros: Large rooms Hot water Free WiFi Free water bottles Location is right at the...

The room itself had poor lighting (impossible to read). The bathroom was room, but had mildew issues. The worst feature was probably not the hotel's fault -- a noisy bell tower nearby, that seemed to chime every 15 minutes.

Stayed four nights. The location is the best in Antigua. A convent with centuries of history. Great rooms that take you back to another century... Breakfast was great. Always a new local delicacy... The convent's arch is emblematic in Antigua

We stayed here for one night in July. The rooms are really charming as they are converted convent rooms. That being said, the one we stayed in and our friends' room only had one window which faced the courtyard. So, unless the shutters were open on the window (and thus allowing everyone walking by to look in), the room is...

Hotel Convento Santa Catalina is a ~400 year old convent that has been converted into a hotel. The front door to the hotel is almost under the famous Antigua arch. The main square is two blocks south and the market is three blocks east, so it's in a great location. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. The desk clerk...

This hotel is located right below the famous Santa Catalina arch of Antigua. It can become noisy at times but only during weekends. We booked a room for three they provided us with three comfortable beds. Bathroom was big but the shower was poured water really slowly and made showering really slow. Amenities for the bathroom were scarce with only...
