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...

It's a small nice hotel, I didn't request any special services but front desk staff was nice and informative, it rained and they provided umbrellas for our use. The bathroom could have more amenities but other wise was nice and clean, the room also. We stayed in room "san cristobal" it is very good sized with lots of space. Food...

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...

What an awesome place to stay! We stayed here for a week in March. The hotel is located right next to the famous and picturesque arch - can't be beat! The staff at the hotel were very friendly, although it might have helped that we as a group spoke spanish fairly well. The grounds and building were beautiful! The courtyards...

This hotel was chosen because of it's location, and I couldn't have been happier with the views and the service we received while there. They even have a jewelry store (slightly overpriced -but the stones came with "certificates of authenticity"). Food was great, and there's views of a volcano of you know where to look.

Beautiful old hotel with comfortable rooms and an excellent restaurant breakfast was great and lunch too. The service was 5 stars! The location was great only steps to museums, center of town and activities. I really enjoyed my stay and hope to come back again.

This hotel is beautiful and classy, in a great location right next to the famous "Arco" of Antigua Guatemala. This hotel used to be a convent, and maintains this theme in the naming of the rooms and decor. Our room was very spacious and beautifully decorated with typical Guatemalan furniture. The beds were firm and comfortable and all seemed well....

This hotel is a hidden gem. From the street (right off of the Parque Central), the entrance is like a tunnel funneling you through a few merchants' wares into a garden oasis. The open courtyard is surrounded by covered walkways and doors leading into individual rooms. It used to be a nun's convent but has been converted into a hotel...

I dislike giving bad reviews unless they are really deserved and this one is absolutely deserved for shear and utter ineptitude. Frustratingly its a beautiful place in a great location but this does not make up for Evelyn Lopez (Manager) awful awful management decisions. This place should be a 5 but gets a 1 and here is the reason. I...
