“A nice welcoming hotel”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

My wife & i stayed at Los Encuentros for two weeks in April/ May 2014 whilst doing volunteer work in the nearby village of San Mateo. Irma provided us with lots of help and friendship so we felt like we were living with friends not just at a hotel. The breakfasts were delicious and filling, and the atmosphere was very nice. The double room with bathroom met all our needs. It was lovely to sit on the roof area , to sunbathe or just chill away from the noise of the town ( especially as one week was Semana Santa when things get a little manic).
The hotel was only a short walk from all the main sights in Antigua, Cathedral, Merced church, Central Square and even the bus station. We found a nice local restaurant just across the road ( Fogon de la Abuela) which served lovely evening meals, large portions and excellent prices, well worth a visit.
We would recommend this to anyone needing a nice , friendly, comfortable hotel near the centre of Antigua at the right sort of price

Room Tip: Ground floor double in the courtyard was good especially as it had an en suite and was quiet

Los Encuentros is centrally located in Antigua. Irma makes delicious breakfasts and was very helpful in answering all our touristy questions and inquiries. The hotel is very clean, beautifully decorated, and homey. It was a wonderful experience. Highly recommended!

We happened upon this hotel, and are very happy we did! The hotel is in a GREAT location and Irma is just fantastic. So nice, helpful and willing to serve you how ever she can. Her and her husband also make a great breakfast! The facilities are good, especially for the price you pay! I would definitely recommend and stay at Hotel Los Encuentros again.

Room Tip: Bathrooms are shared by 6-10 people which was PERFECT for our group of 8. We felt like we had the en...

I really enjoyed my 8-day stay at Hotel Los Encuentros. Irma is just lovely. She made all the arrangements for me to and from the airport, served a delicious breakfast every morning, and did everything she could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. I had a private single room with a shared bath in the back. It was very quiet, simple furnished and comfortable. Given its location away from the open roof part of the hotel, it was a little warm at night, but not at all uncomfortable.

Hotel Los Encurentros is right in the center of Antigua, 5 minutes from the central park and easy to walk to everything. It perfect for my stay and at a very reasonable price.

I come to Antigua twice a year and plan to stay here every time in the future. For the price, I don;t think I could possible find a better value

our whole group loved our stay at los encuentros! irma is a wonderful host, helping us get set up with transportation to the airport, making a special gluten-free breakfast for someone in our party with celiac's (and delicious pancakes for the rest of us!), and generally making us feel so at home in antigua. great clean, cute rooms as well! I would definitely go back next time I'm in antigua.

We recently stayed in Hotel Los Encentros for 2 nights. It's a comfortable and cozy kind of place, hidden from the street. Our room was a budget one, nicely decorated and along the main corridor. It was a bit noisy at night with guests coming and going, so if you stay ask for a room around the courtyard or the great little apartment up on the roof. There is a kitchen here as well as a comfortable lounge room. Irma cooked lovely pancakes for breakfast and we really liked the location, being close to the central market and post office, the real heart of the town, rather than the lovely but touristy main square.

Hotel Los Encuentros was exactly the sort of place we like to stay. We stayed there for 8 nights at the end of February 2014. The hotel has very good noise and smoking policies (minimum noise and no smoking) so you are going to get a good night sleep here.

The kitchen facilities available to guests are good, there is a supermarket and the local market close by, making it easy to prepare some meals if you want (especially if you have done a cooking course).

Irma owns and runs the hotel and is everything you could ask for in a host. She is a very friendly and always happy to answer any of your questions. She prepares breakfasts for guests every morning, and she went out of her way to accommodate for my partner's egg allergy.

The room was very clean, with enough power points around to charge all your devices.
