Beautiful court yard. During breakfast on the upper patio, Dionica pointed out that the volcano was smoking! She was very helpful and attentive.
Rooms are small and rustic, but clean and efficient. Nice location.

Camelias Inn is located within an easy walking area of major restaurants and sites of Antigua. I felt very secure while I was there. The rooms are clean and maintained well. I paid 64 Q for a triple. The garden and rooftop terrace are a nice touch. Excellent Wi-Fi.
Stayed here at the end of our mission trip. Bi-lingual staff was very helpful. Breakfast was delicious. Got to watch one of the volcanoes vent while on the rooftop terrace. Within walking distance of the market and several wonderful restaurants.
Antigua can be expensive. I have stayed at many places in this town...and Hotel Las Camelias Inn provides great value. Compare to many other small hotels, it is less expensive. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is well located. The decor possesses typical Guatemalan charm. The rooms are small. They are clean and appointed with ceiling fans and cable TV. The internet actually works in the rooms and common areas. And Internet service is complimentary. If you are with others, there are some nice spacious common areas for sitting and visiting. Filtered water and hot water for tea are available in the common areas. Please keep in mind that this place...as many other small hotels, irregardless of the price this one also has thin walls. You will hear your neighbors and people in the halls. Take ear plugs when you are traveling. You will need them to guarantee a good sleep. I would stay here again.
We stayed here during Semana Santa - the location is convenient, just down the road from Hotel Santo Domingo and a few blocks from Central Park. Good Friday evening procession passed right in front of the Hotel.
The place is cheerfully and tastefully decorated. For the affordable price I hesitated at first thinking it would be rowdy especially during peak season, but guests were very courteous and the overall atmosphere was calm and relaxing.
It is very pleasant to relax on the terrace/breakfast room. Breakfast is $5 - usually your choices are Continental, American or Chapin(Guatemalan), but for peak occupancy they serve buffets. When we could we had the Chapin - sweet and tangy sausages were delicious. When they are not serving the buffet, allow for about 45 mins. preparation - so place your orders early or even the night before.
Rooms are basic and clean. Staff was very gracious and helpful (but it appears all Guatemalans are like that :-) )
We thought it was a very good choice - price was right, for the money saved we could afford to "splurge" on excellent restaurants.
Just a suggestion - some rooms did not have full-length mirrors - inexpensive addition that travelers often take for granted.
Hotel Las Camelias Inn is a beautiful as the pictures show! We stayed for the week of Semana Santa. The view from the patio of the surrounding volcanos is amazing. The actual rooms are a bit outdated and noisy, but there is no need to stay in your room with the comfortable public area. Breakfast is extra, but worth it. What made the hotel exceptional was the staff. The staff was friendly and helpful. Mishel from the front desk helped us before and during our stay there.
