“What a treat. Felt like staying with Family”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We stayed in the D'Leyanda twice in January. Antigua and the hotel were the highlights of our recent trip across Central America. The location is perfect , close to the Main square and Cathedral with many restaurants and bars in close proximity. The hotel is small with 6 delightful rooms each name after a local legend. Breakfast is taken on the roof with a beautiful view of the Agua Volcano. However what made the stay so delightful was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They all made my wife and myself so welcome. When we returned from a 4 day trip to Flores and Tikal it felt like returning to family. There was even a box of local candies in our room to welcome us back. We are definitely looking forward to returning to D'Leyenda and Antigua in the near future.

We stayed at the D'Leyanda on arrival into Guatemala after getting their private shuttle from Guatemala City Airport. It was a great place to start our two and a half month trip off. Its in a great location as it's just off the main square. The staff were excellent! couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, making sure that we had everything we wanted...including the rooftop hot tub! The rooms were immaculately cleaned everyday, complete with chocolates on the pillows and towels wrapped as swans. All in all, a great place. It was a bit out of our budget, but was perfect to get over the long flight from the U.K, and to start the trip off in a friendly and relaxing place. We will be back!

We arrived around 6 p.m. staying one night on our way to Copan, Honduras, and regretted not staying here earlier when we first arrived in Guatamala. It's a nice small hotel steps from the main square, but what impressed us most was the wonderful staff. Alvaro and Juan Jose were the day and night staff at the front desk and both were so friendly and helpful. We didn't have enough Guatamalan cash when we arrived and they helped us find a bank that I could get to, got a nice hot tub ready, and got us packed breakfast at 3:30 a.m. and stayed with us until our transport to Copan arrived at around 4:15 a.m. As mentioned by others, there is a bar that plays music right next door late into the evening. That can be a problem for some I'm sure, but it didn't bother us much. If we have the chance to visit Antigua again, we will definitely book this place again. Thank you Alvaro and Juan for making our stay so pleasant and enjoyable even if was for a short visit.

We had a great 3 night stay in early February. Our room was tastefully furnished and included a fireplace for chilly nights (which we did not need to use). The staff deserves special mention as all were extremely helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the breakfasts on the roof patio with a view of Agua Volcano in the morning light. The location is perfect and just a few steps away from the central plaza of old Antigua. Our room was very quiet and we slept well.
Our only suggestions: 1) our room had a bit of a musty smell which could be a problem for someone with allergies or sensitivities, 2) We could have used a bit more lighting in the room for reading, and 3) breakfasts were enjoyable but could use the addition of a little protein (eggs, meat, beans, cheese or yoghurt). Would definitely stay here again or recommend to others.

We stayed here on three separate nights during our 2 week stay in Guatemala. Every staff member is so friendly and courteous. They are caring and provide service at the top end of excellent. We would stay again simply because of the staff.
The hotel is very conveniently located about 20 steps from the main square. It is safe even after dark and very secure. The rooms are very clean and beds are comfortable. Rooms and common areas are very nicely decorated. Roof top terrace was a great place to enjoy breakfast with an excellent fruit plate, bread (and cookies) and lots of coffee.
The bar next door creates a bit of noise but we found it subsided around 11:30 to 12. Otherwise the rooms are quiet.
We would highly recommend this hotel.

The staff here were so helpful and courteous, the hotel is centrally located and rooms very comfortable. However we arrived late on a Saturday evening after a long flight and the music was blasting from the bar next door, this continued until well after 1am. Our breakfast on Sunday was delicious-the staff proudly told us it was a local breakfast, but we soon realised this was only served on a Sunday, on the other mornings there was no choice and when we asked for eggs we were told we could only have fruit and waffles, we did manage to persuade the staff to give us bread. My advise is find somewhere else to stay if you can especially on a Friday or Saturday night.

We appreciate your comment because as we have mentioned, it helps us continue growing up as one of the most popular hotels in La Antigua Guatemala. However, we would like to clarify that as a courtesy, we offer traditional breakfast for our guests only on Sunday mornings. Whenever we get a new reservation, we let our guests know that Continental breakfast will be included, which is always served with the best quality.

Spent a few nights here for a long weekend in Antigua. This hotel is just off the main square. There are only 6 rooms here and breakfast can be served on the terrace overlooking the city and the volcano. There is a lively bar next door but it did not keep me awake at night. The staff was top notch and spoke very good English. They recommended restaurants and excursions for our time there. I would definitely go back to this hotel!!
