La Catedral is a lovely boutique hotel with just about the best location imaginable in Antigua (it is just off the Central Park). It is an easy task to walk anywhere in town. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. All the rooms face an interior courtyard (in the traditional colonial/hacienda style) which is a great place to sit, relax, drink...

I’ve spend 11 nights in two different rooms there on my recent Guatemalan Adventure and I was absolutely thrilled !! The hotel is a quiet oasis just off the Parque Central, so location-wise it’ doesn’t get any better in Antigua. With only 8 rooms inside an old colonial building you feel more like at home than in a hotel. The...

We spent several weeks online scouting places to stay for our trip to Antigua a few weeks ago, and the reviews--and reasonable prices--brought us invariably to Hotel la Catedral. It is not the most expensive or most luxurious hotel in the city, I'm sure, but you'll be hard-pressed to feel more at home, more welcomed and more relaxed than right...

The rooms were well furnished and comfortable, quiet considering it's a block from La Catedral and the center of town; the staff is attentive, friendly, and ever helpful. The breakfast was very good. Also, the parking lot is extremely secure. It's all in all a lovely little hotel with a small but lush courtyard. We stayed in 3 different rooms....

Improvement needed. I understand this is not a five star, major chain hotel, but it needs to have their basics covered. During checkout time, I had to dig in for cash to pay for laundry. They hire an outside service, and ask their guests to pay in cash on a separate bill, making it annoying if you don't have any...

La Catedral was no doubt one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The room was lovely, furnished with antique style furniture and a spotless and very stylish en suite.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. All bathrooms are stylishly and individually designed with antique marble. All toiletries and hair dryer also included. All our rates include, Full a La Carte Breakfast, free international calls to designated countries (time limited) and private parking in the same location. In the same facilities we have an equipped private meeting room and a Family Lounge-Bar. We also organize and coordinate your Tour needing's to any other beautiful destinations as well as transportation from and to Guatemala City. ... more   less
