We loved the hotel and their staff, young, lovely and ready to solve problems and help out. Each bedroom is different, with lovely, tasty, colourful decorations. We welcome the rest hours policy, which they seek to ensure for the tranquility of the guests. Thumbs up to this small, lovely hotel that is also pet friendly and perfectly located.

I was moderately satisfied overall with my experience, but I probably will look for other options for stays on my next stay. Location of this hotel is really good - it is located right next to the arch and has a plethora of really great restaurants very close. There are many high end shopping stores and souvenir shops nearby. It...

Very disappointed. When we checked in they charged us in cash. They would charge us 6% more if we payed with cc. Never heard of that in all my travels . Also no mention of it on any websites . Luckily we took out a lot of cash before we got there. Our bill was close to $600 and it...

First view looks quaint and rustic. But the devil is in the details. Very old infrastructure (light & bath/shower). Somewhat of clean. During our stay cold and not enough blankets. Also on the noisy side. Location is perfect.

This is a quaint boutique hotel, with beautiful rustic settings in a great part of town. Friendly staff, arranging tours to Pacaya. The bell tower rings on the hour, so be prepared and bring ear plugs. All in all a pleasant place to kick off your Antigua / Guatemala experience.

This hotel is situated in the heart of Antigua, right under the Arch. There are many historical and religious artifacts throughout the common areas which add to the charm of the property. The courtyard and plants within are interesting, and well tended. There is an enjoyable restaurant in the courtyard as well. Did not make reservations, just showed up late...

We booked into another hotel and after dropping our bags we decided to roam around and look for a restaurant. We came across this hotel and were taken by the surroundings and its structure. It has a tiny play area in the courtyard and the food was pretty good. It was only after our meal that we noticed this room;...

This hotel is gorgeous. The staff is very attentative and helpful. We asked questions For directions where to eat and shop and they can arrange shuttles to the airport. Is better not to purchase shuttles from gray lines thru Expedia is better to purchase the shuttles at the airport. Much cheaper.

The stay in the hotel was terrible . The relation between price and quality is defiantly not coherent. There was a lot of noise I couldn't sleep all night long. The parking lot is almost 8 blocks away and no one helps you with the luggage. I just wouldn't recommend the hotel at all!

We lived in Antigua for five years, so we know the area very well. We selected this hotel for our return visit because we knew it was both centrally located and reasonably priced. We were happy with our choice, as the room had plenty of space, the courtyard was pleasant, and the staff were wonderfully friendly, helpful, and welcoming. Some...
