I stayed here last year with my significant other, we loved this place. It was welcoming, warm and everyone was so ready to help with anything you need. Place is located in quiet neighborhood, beautiful gardens, clean and close to everything and all the beauty of Antigua, I'd come back and stay with them again!

We arrived at Villa Serena after a long day and were greeted by Marina who was so very welcoming. We settled into our 2 rooms and ventured out to find dinner. After dinner, we weren't sure how to get back, so we called Marina to ask for directions and she insisted on picking us up. The inn is actually in...

We were very pleased to find this classic Guatemalan home, over 250 years old, converted to a B & B. We were greeted by the owner, Marina, who was so well acquainted with Antigua that she was a veritable wealth of knowledge of local attractions, restaurants and interesting facts about the area. Everything she suggested we either did or dined...

We only spent one night here & loved the decor & the rooftop patio. It was a 10-15 minute walk from the central park but seemed safe. The staff was very accomodating & breakfast was pleasant in the courtyard. A good value. I gave it only a 4* because we did not have hot water.

La Villa Serena is beautiful! Close to the heart of Antigua, it is a short walk to great restaurants and the market. Marena is the owner and she took such great care of me and my friends, one of which had to be hospitalized. Marena drove me in her car to see my friend. The rooms at so unique and...

This authentic Guatemalan bed and breakfast is run by the most amazing woman. Her staff is great, the rooms are very quaint, and they even have free WIFI (which for me is a necessity when traveling overseas). Marina, the woman who owns the place, is just fabulous. She has been more places and seen more things than most. Take a...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights during our trip to Guatemala. The BNB is located on the edge of main city, so it's quiet and separated from the noise and pollution of the main areas. It's still close enough to walk to town, though. The host, Mariana, is absolutely lovely and speaks English fluently if speaking Spanish...
