A perfect place to feel at home while staying in Antigua. Inviting atmosphere and welcoming staff. This is a place I will return to again and again! This has a great central location where you can easily walk throughout the town and also feel close to home.

The minute you walk through the huge door you feel like you are walking into a garden oasis. The staff are simply GREAT. Coffee and tea or cold water is available at all times and the courtyard and garden are filled with fountains, birds, flowers and an ongoing feast to the eyes of interesting decor and furniture pieces. The room was lovely and the special touch's like the face cloth folded like a swan did not go unnoticed. Perfect location to walk everywhere, Very impressed and would not hesitate recommending it.

Room Tip: All the rooms had individual characters. Would liked to have tried them all!

The hotel was really nice, clean and right it the center.
The staff was friendly and helpful and the price was worth its value.
We payed 35$ per night for a room with a private bathroom but there are also rooms with shared bathroom for 30$.
We stayed in room number 5, it had a nice balcony.
Totally recommend this place!

Not to be confused with the “Casa Antigua hotel” on the other side of town.

Couple in their mid 30s, early 40s. No kids.

Overall: Friendly, fun, very old, very antiguan hotel. With genuinely rustic rooms. Large enough space. Comfy beds. Small TV. Large bathroom. With lots of public places to sit and smell the many flowers.

We paid $112 for a Saturday night on semana santa (easter week), when the whole town gets extremely festive, putting elaborate flower/sawdust murals on the streets, and having daily processions marching jesus through the streets. Lots of fun.

Pros:
-Cool, old building.
-Great location, close to everything.
-Bed was womfortable enough. No A.C, but strong/loud fan.
-Awesome view from the rooftop terrace (tough to find in the back). We saw a volcano exploding (as you will). Super views. Bring a camera.
-Lots of fun little quite areas to sit and read, or whatever. Beautiful gardens, flowers everywhere.
-Breakfast served near reception, open area. Smelled good, but we headed right out.
Antigua brewery is right across the street. Open late (1am-ish).
-Most employees spoke some English, but Spanish is definitely your best bet here.
-They sell beers (and water and snacks) at the reception area for Q20 (I think). But not after 10pm.

Cons:
-Slightly pricey.
-Old rooms. Rustic. Has a old timey vibe. Some windows don’t close.
-Very old door (forceful push would get you past the lock).
-Couldn’t book a shuttle to lake Atitlan through hotel, but was able to through a travel company around the block.

Random Tips:
Try the breakfast.
Don’t drink the water from the tap. Don’t brush your teeth either (I did, and was fine).
Try all they street food. I was told not to, but it’s inexpensive and tasty and everyone around seems to be enjoying it. I never got sick, and ate with reckless abandon.

You can arrange a shuttle to pick you up from the airport for $50 (Q381). But you can get an uber for about $35 (Q260).

Warnings: If you bring a car to Antigua, which I highly highly recommend against, you will likely have to pay a guy to “watch” it, as I saw outside the hotel to anyone parking in the area.

I stayed here during the week of "Semana Santa", so it was more expensive then it would have been during the rest of the year. It is a small hotel but the staff is friendly even though most of them do not speak anything but Spanish. The rooms are wonderful and cozy, but the water is not always hot and you will have to wait for the water to heat up, if people in other rooms are taking showers. They have a small breakfast menu, but they do not offer anything for lunch or dinner.
