rooms are around open court yard no restaurant breakfast brought to you at the courtyard tables. bar is a vending machine in lobby. no lift but plenty of stairs to enjoy. rooms small with little space. bathroom even smaller. no safe or hair dryer in room. TV. well located for main centre, but its not a big town.

A few minutes walk to the centre and the hotel location is safe. Staff of hotel is very nice and helpful. The room is clean and comfortable. The breakfast is good and very good volcano view on the roof top.

The hotel was really nice, the breakfast was good with a lot of options from the menu, awesome view to the Volcano and town. The beds were very confortable and perfect location. My family and I loved the experience there. Highly recommended!

This was my 3rd trip to Guatemala & my first 2 stays were exceptional. I thought I would like our group to be closer to the center of town this time so I took a chance on the El Carmen. While the location is terrific & the people are very kind & accommodating, the facility itself was a huge disappointment....

It's a beautiful boutique hotel some of the rooms are pretty small so be careful because you can get fooled by the pictures. We loved our stay but we had some issues I have to point out: there is no AC, so if you are someone who gets hot at night this might be an issue. Our bathroom had a...

This hotel does NOT look like the pictures on the website, is insanely overpriced and was a huge disappointment. Our room (for 85usd/night) was cramped, had visible mold on the rafters and walls, smelled terrible (like mold and lacquer) was quite dirty and had no hot water. On arrival, they tried to charge us at their own arbitrary exchange rate...

My room was small and a bit dark - but unique. The window was broken but the people at reception offered me to change the room. There were helpful also in other concerns. The patio was the breakfast-room. I found that not so cozy. During daytime it can be nice to use the roof garden. When breakfast is included, you...

We used the hotel as a base for exploring Antigua and area plus as an early 7am departure to climb Acatenango. They were very helpful in storing unneeded bags while we were away at no charge. Desayunos is reasonable at 30q and the rancheros are awesome Excellent little courtyard makes for nice ambience but the concrete construction does amplify some...

This hotel is very centrally located to the main square. It has a central dining area surrounded by the rooms, and an upper terrace with a great view of the surrounding area. We stayed here on two occasions, the first time our room was directly over the open internal area, so we could hear quite a bit of activity below...

This hotel is located a block and a half from the central park (easy and safe walking distance). Great breakfast included and wonderful people work there. Great price! The design of the hotel is traditional of the area, very coloful.
