Antigua hotels-trying to choose between 4

We will be in Antigua in June. We are between 4 hotels; The Camino Real, Hotel La Catedral , Porada del Angel and Hotel Cirilo. We want it to be centrally located. From reading the TA reviews, these are all great hotels, does anyone who has stayed at these hotels have any personal opinions?

I stayed at the Camino Real in February of 2012. A gorgeous hotel, almost like you are staying in a museum. It is close enough to the center of town so you can walk, but far enough away that is quiet. Rooms are gorgeous and you need a room key to enter the section of the hotel where they are located. If you are renting a car, there is plenty of parking. I would stay here again!

I stayed at Hotel La Caredral in November and was very pleased. The location was fabulous, the rooms were quite nice, the breakfast was very good and substantial and the staff was delightful. Enjoy your trip!

Agree, Casa Santo Domingo is certainly worth the splurge. Even if you don't stay there then at least go for a meal or a cocktail.

We will be in Antigua for 4 days in Feb. I asked our hotel if they arrange airport transport and they said that they could for $45. That sounds outrageous. Have the prices gone way up or are they trying to take advantage of people who may not know of the going prices? Will we tick them off now by opting not to use their services? We arrive before noon into Guat City.

Thanks for input.
