“Good location”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

This hotel was a good place to stay for the couple of nights we had in Antigua. There were pros and cons - on the positive side it is a charming garden/courtyard where you can have your breakfast and its in a super location very near the town plaza etc. There is a great view from the roof terrace. They can provide a very generous breakfast for $5 US (but coffee lovers will prefer to go elsewhere for their hit!). The wifi didn't work in our room only at reception and in courtyard to a certain extent. We didn't get much helpful information about local places to eat at reception (but perhaps this is because day receptionists seem to be much more knowledgeable than night ones and we arrived later in the day). Our hotel door could be pushed open even when locked and no safe is provided so we were glad to have our own locks for valuables in bags. The shower heat and pressure was dependent on whether others were showering at the same time (ie could blast hot or cold all of a sudden and stay that way). I couldn't honestly say that I thought it was great value for money but if you're looking for something in the center on a budget and you're not bothered about the other things then this would be a good choice.

Room Tip: rooms at the back away from noise of the street - check your door closes properly!

This little inn was made even greater by it's incredibly accommodating staff. We had some unfortunate travel hiccups with a tornado watch making us lose the first night in Antigua. That being said, from the second we arrived they were great and helpful and recommended walking around Antigua as it's a very easy walkable little town. Visit the local market with tons of locally sourced textiles, pottery and woven souvenirs.

The hotel itself is a great place for a good nights rest. We stayed in room number one. We experienced no excessive or unusually loud noise from the outside bars and restaurants nearby even though we stayed on a Friday night. That makes us confident in saying that if you're stopping by Antigua for a couple of nights you should consider staying at Casa Antigua and PLEASE do yourself a favour and visit the restaurant next door as it had the best dinner we've ever had traveling!!!! For more reviews of our time in Guatemala and other places to visit please read our profile.

The grounds of this hotel are quaint and beautiful. I imagine keen photographer would have love taking pics of the hotel garden. The staff are super helpful with restaurant tips or organising tours. After arriving on a red eye flight from LAX they checked us in early - thankfully!

We initially had picked a musty room, we passed out for 5 hours. The hubby checked out some of the other rooms that were airy. The staff let us change rooms. We moved all our stuff - but I had forgotten my wedding ring. The front desk handed my ruby and diamond wedding ring to me after they had cleaned the original room. Not used to having a wedding ring, but I feel super blessed to have picked a hotel with such helpful and honest staff :D

The only downside are mosquitoes - but that's probably all of Guatemala

What a beautiful and quaint hotel. Lovely clean rooms, wonderful staff and lush surroundings are just a few things that makes this my only choice when returning to Antigua. Perfect location to walk anywhere with great places to see and great restaurants close by. Excellent value!

The staff was friendly and polite. It's good for the price. The location is great! A wonderful restaurant next door. Great area. I got sick and he staff found a great doctor for me. A few nights is enough. Our room was cute and clean. Recommend!

i stayed here recently and enjoyed my time wholeheartedly. The hotel itself is lovely with beautiful lush gardens. The people who work there are very nice and very helpful, Patricia at the front desk in particular. i asked for a quiet room and got one!! The place is a block from Parque Central and walking distance to anything you may want or need. The prices are very good as well.....this is my hotel when i am in Antigua.....I had an excellent stay here and intend to return.
