My daughter and I loved this hotel. It is small, quiet, and friendly. The location is perfect, very near the Central Square and some great restaurants. The garden is lush and beautiful - a lovely breakfast spot. Our room was well-equipped and restful. The staff booked a tour for us to Pacaya, and also arranged our cab back to Guatemala...

This is a gem of a small hotel! The staff, headed up by Marco and Beatrice, were very friendly and accommodating. I hurt my knee walking on the cobblestones and they let me keep a cold compress in their freezer and retrieved it for me as many times as I wanted. My room was lovely, with magnificent furniture and a...

To Live the history this is the right place in Antigua which by the way is a great town to visit. Very good location, good service, comfortable and clean rooms. You do not want to have a room on the street side though: street noise!

This is a lovely small hotel, only 9 room, less than a block from Pargue Central. This was the family home of the owner and she converted it to a boutique hotel. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The courtyard is beautiful, and there are couches and chairs, with throws, for relaxing and keeping warm in the evening. The...

Hotel La Catedral was a a very nice, beautifully appointed hotel, close to central park and within walking distance of many of Antiqua's sites. We felt well cared for, safe, friendly staff, good breakfast. Relatively small with beautiful little garden, roof top tables. We would stay there again without hesitation. Not inexpensive, but good value.

The hotel is just a block from the main square, which made it convenient to walk to the church on the square and local businesses. The facilities are just as described and as shown in the photos. The open central garden is beautiful and facility decor made us feel like we were living in the midst of Antigua's history. The...

The location couldn't be better. One block from the central park so you can walk to and from all the popular spots after dark safely or easily return to the hotel during the day. The rooms were of a decent size, clean and with relatively hot water. It is a small hotel, I doubt if there are more than 6...

We spent one night in this nice little hotel. I was unsure how many people were there, but it was not too many. We had a very nice room with a king sized bed just off the patio.

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.
