This hotel was great! We visited with our two children (6 and 10) over Thanksgiving. It is only a 5 or 10 minute walk into the town and is located in a quiet spot. The ruins are amazing. Our room had a fireplace which we used nightly. We also sat in the lobby in front of the fire after a...

Nestled among ruins. Small hotel with very comfortable rooms and common areas. Great service from the staff. Good breakfast. Spotless. Safe. Quiet. Fireplace in every room and in lobby. Gated. Very close to downtown, small walk.

Oscar is one of the nicest and most friendly hosts. He makes you feel at home immediately. The hotel is excellent, and the ambience is perfect. It is built around the ruins of an old church, and there is a sense of peace and rest which surrounds you there. We were so impressed that we returned to the hotel when...

We stayed twice at Cirilo during our trip in Guatemala, as it was so nice. Nice staff, great location and beautiful hotel and rooms. Food was also great, their breakfasts are all as delicious as one another.

The hotel was very peaceful and exceeded our expectations. The hotel is built amongst ruins of an old church, and they've done a fantastic job of making it serene and inviting. It was very quite, despite most (all?) rooms being full. There is a lap pool that was cool (not heated) that our daughter swam in. We enjoyed coffee in...

Hotel was calm and beautiful during our October stay. Went for a quick dip in the pool and was lovely but a little chilly out. However, happened to be the perfect temp to then dry off in front of the fireplace in the room. Couldn't imagine anything nicer. Room even had a bit of the old building's ruin in it,...

This Hotel was very quaint and clean. It was a little off the beaten path from the hustle and bustle of the center of Antigua. Pretty quite overall. The staff was wonderful, the service you receive here is superb. The breakfast was delicious and the dinners that we had there were decent. The coffee was average, but I feel like...

Over-all good experience. Easy to find, staff professional, courteous, and accommodating. My wife thought the decor was beautiful, great sense of well-being there. Breakfast was great, everything good to go. Even used laundry service.

A delightful boutique B&B hotel fashioned from the ruins of an old church. It's a short walk into the main part of Antigua (10 minutes without photo stops) which means it's tranquil and quiet. The emerald green pool is framed by the ruins and hanging vines. A favourite with local honeymooners and couples looking for a romantic escape on the...
