“Good budget option...central and comfortable.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

US $103 for a Thursday, Friday and Saturday night over the Independence Day weekend.
3pm check in but room 4 (downstairs) available when I arrived from GC at 7am and early check in provided which was appreciated. Short stroll to Central Park. Wifi in room. Microwave and central kitchen area. Spacious clean room...double beds and 2 singles but booked as a solo traveller. Laundry Q45 (no doubt cheaper on the street) and hassle free shuttle organized to Pana Q89. 24 hour front desk and a good clean option.
The cons...shower was only ever lukewarm...Thursday night a live acoustic guitar next door had me feeling I had front row seats...thankfully it was over by 10pm'ish. Friday and Saturday nights no live music but a thump thump from the music...honestly, not overly loud those nights and the fan in room pretty much drowned it out. Some noise from front door with people coming home late.
Staff helpful and overall a good option for the price.
Clearly low season and with 8 rooms am not sure what price you could negotiate as a walk in.

Seems to be a chain of hotels in Antigua of which Dona Luisa is one. I have stayed in three of the hotels, same owners, on more than one occasion. These are well run places and very helpful to the travelers. Unable to get a reservation at Don Valentino, arrangements were made for Dona Luisa via a young lady in Don Valentino. Nice place, clean with hot water and a small kitchen. I usually stay at one of these hotels when in Antigua. Only issue might be location. The surrounding area is dark and muggers lurk.

Room Tip: If unable to make a reservation in one of these hotels, they will do all they can to provide accommo...

Helpful and friendly staff have travel connections for day trips around the beautiful city of Antigua. It is also located downtown where you can easily walk to watch the lights and the street life. I liked the interior design and the care taken to keep it clean.

Except for the music from the near by bar, we really liked staying here. The little fan provided helps drown out the noise. It is clean, the mattresses are ok. The staff is very friendly. If you stay, take your own wash cloth and shampoo, soap and large, soft, towels are provided. Location wise, you can't beat it! I am sure we will stay there next year when we go back.

The Hotel Posada Dona Luisa in Antigua, Guatemala, is conveniently located close to the town square, shoppes, restaurants, and sights. The rooms are clean but with no air conditioning or fans. Our shower had little water pressure and it didn't drain very well. No food is offered but you can buy bottled water and sodas at the front desk. If all you're looking for is a place to rest and sleep, this would suit you well - but wouldn't a hostel do as well for less?

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms have more window air circulation.

I found this place clean, comfortable and i was on budget and it had all i wanted for a good price. Its close to central park and the staff were pleasant and friendly.

I would agree with some of previous reviews that if you're staying on a Saturday night, the neighboring bar/club music could get super loud.
