Cheap and safe accomodation in Antigua/hotel antigua

Hi,

Any recommendation for cheap and safe accommodation in Antigua? I will be going to Antigua several times this summer (for research purposes) but will stay 1 -2 nights max. per trip.( I'm staying in Guate otherwise)

Thanks a lot in advance,

You don't say what cheap means to you but my favorite is Casa Cristina - heading back there next week for 3 nights before heading to the lake.

Their website:

Hopefullist you seem to be some kind of Guate travel guru :) Your pics are great! Thanks for the reply. Do you know any other places? For now I will be there just Friday next week.

I always stay at Casa Cristina except one night in 2009 when I had a group in tow too large to stay there and we stayed at Posada La Merced, just around the corner, larger, slightly higher budget level.

We'll be at Casa Cristina on Friday - if you stay there look us up! I think we'll be in Room 12:

I would second the recommendation for Casa Cristina if you're on a budget. I stayed there for a month last year. It's clean, safe, good location, and a real bargain.

By the way, I'm in Guate for research right now as well. Feel free to contact me - maybe we can share research advice if we're in related fields.
