We stayed here for 4 nights on 3 separate occasions throughout our trip. The first 2 nights were fine, very basic hotel that met all our needs, and the customer service was great. They helped set up a trip for us to Tikal, and transportation from the airport to the hotel, and to Pana. Our second stay which was 2... More

We enjoyed a nice 2 night stay at La Merced while we were in Antigua. The staff is very nice and super helpful, rooms are simple but clean and good value for money especially in Antigua. All rooms face a nice courtyard, however if you are unlucky to have noisy fellow guests (as we were) it is quite a noisy... More

I booked my first few nights in Guatemala at Posada La Merced and thought I might try other hotels in Antigua since I'd be returning several times within a few weeks, but I came back to this hotel each time because it had everything I needed. It's located on a quiet street within walking distance of Parque Central and many... More

My wife and I were taking Spanish classes and after a horrible week with a host family, we decided to take up a hotel. We visited a number and decided on this one as the front staff were very helpful and the rate was very good. The room was comfortable and the staff was extremely helpful. My only complaint would...

I stayed here with a large group, and found the facilities to be adequate, and the staff exemplary. The large suite on the top floor would be perfect for a small family or a group of friends. There is a shared kitchen, which keeps costs down, and--maybe because I stayed with so many people I already knew--the whole place has... More

The front desk staff earns a 5 star rating for their professionalism and helpfulness. The hotel is lovely with it's indoor courtyards. It is located far enough from the noise to provide a quite night's sleep but close enough that we could walk to the central park area. Our room was comfortable but very small. This, along with no hot... More

I recently stayed at Posada La Merced in Antigua. My room was comfortable, the staff was friendly; helpful; and welcoming, and the location was convenient to the center of town. While I cannot compare it to other hostels; hotels; or hospedajes in town, in comparison to other locations in Guatemala, this was a great place to stay; to feel secure;... More

I stayed here when I was waiting to bring home my 6 month old son for three weeks. Defiantly, the rooms in back are quiter than the front and the garden is simply enchanting.

I couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The service was great, the employees were even better. The Posada is located in an excellent location with an absolutely stunning view from the rooftop. Fernando's, the cafe right next door, was affordable and delicious. It was perfect!
