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...

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;...

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!

This hotel is located within walking distance of everything in Antigua. The hotel is clean, comfortable and a bargain. They are responsive on email. They will help you arrange day trips and recommend sites. The breakfast around the corner is inexpensive and good. I highly recommend this hotel.
