The hotel is completely remodeled! Our room was spacious, had a wonderful fireplace,and great service! We had coffee and then drinks on the terrace...

We happened to score one of the rooms right next to the lap pool and it was a very nice (romantic) setting. The breakfast...

They advertise a kids club but do not tell you that its only on weekends. Breakfast is expensive at 18.00 USD per person. The rooms are nice and pool warm enough. Parking is two blocks away but the hotel provides transportation back.

Like Casa Santo Domingo, where we stayed the night before, this place is all about Old World charm. We paid wildly different rates the two nights we were here (Jan. 1 was a steal; the night before, which we booked later and which of course was New Year's Eve, was almost $100 more.

This was a really nice hotel in a good location to wander Around Antigua. It was spread out over 3 adjacent buildings. The restaurant had good food but limited alacarte, the dinner buffet was the recommended choice. Our room was nice but no AC that we would have used. The bedding was average-need better pillows.
