Interaction with guestsI always try to welcome my guests. And help them in what they need but I give them their space. This is a private house. We have some service employees, I'm not always at home.

Comfortable and quiet part of town. We enjoyed 3 weeks at Dido’s House. Witnessed several Lentan processions from the front door. Room is spacious and loved the courtyard. Kitchen sufficient. We’ll probably be back.

Bedding and towels were high quality and we liked the landlord, she was very sweet. The place could use a deep cleaning, the bedroom and the kitchen supplies. We didn't know we'd be sharing kitchen and other common area with other renters. The man next door to us was loud and inconsiderate.

Casona Colonial is located in a quiet, unspoiled area of colonial Antigua. This traditional house has a lovely garden adorned with flowering shrubs and visiting song birds. The rooms are spacious with gorgeous beds and en suite bathrooms. I really appreciated the peace and quiet day and night. Guests can use the compact outdoor cooking area to cook and dine al fresco listening to the birds. It is located about 15 minutes on foot from Central Park with interesting restaurants and bars even closer. The host, Dido, is charming and attentive.

We spent 10 wonderful days at Cada Dido. We booked for 7 and extended. Dido communicated well with us before our visit and arranged for transport from Guatemala Airport to Antigua. She ensured there was a good welcome for us and was full of good tips and advice re Antigua. The house itself is beautiful. It is a colonial house set around a colourful tropical garden. It is a haven of peace and tranquility. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cada Dido.

I have stayed as Casona Colonial 5 or 6 times in the last two years. For how I like to travel, it is the perfect place for me to stay. It's quiet, in a safe area, has well appointed bedrooms with great beds and luxury linens, and the hosts could not be more accommodating or helpful. The house itself is a taste of old colonial living with the wide veranda that looks out at Volcan El Agua and has a wonderful display of Guatemalan antiques. The small outdoor kitchen provides a place to make coffee, breakfast, or a light lunch or dinner. It is well equipped with utensils, a cook top, fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. This is particularly important to me because I get up very early and like to have coffee at a time when most hotels would not be ready to serve. The household staff are also very helpful and pay great attention to providing fresh towels and clean linens. The location, while a 15 minute walk to the central park, is a quiet neighborhood and in all the times I've stayed there have never felt unsafe. Because I stay there twice a year, it has indeed become home away from home.

It's not that often that one gets to stay in an authentic colonial home but this little gem several blocks from central park made my stay that much more magical in Antigua The rooms are spacious, internet decent and ambiance tranquil and relaxing. Included is a small kitchenette with complimentary coffee and tea where you can prepare breakfast while looking onto the garden. Highly recommended
