“Find something better”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

I was not impressed with this hotel. I stayed there after purchasing a coupon for a discounted room. I called the hotel to ask if they had availabilty for the night I wanted prior to purchsing the coupon and was told that they had plenty of rooms. I bought the coupon and called the hotel ten minutes later with the booking information so I could reserve the room. The manger then said that they were no longer sure there would be avaiability because a large group may or may not be coming for the weekend. Ten minutes prior I was assured there was avaiability. After calling several times for 2 days I was finally told they could reserve the room for us. The coupon was already paid for and would have been $65 wasted if it wasn't used that weekend.

The hotel is very far from the center of town. The rooms were ok but nothing special. Checkout is at noon and we were not able to leave Antigua until 6:00 p.m. We asked if we could store our bags for the afternoon and were told "no" by the receptionist because the manager was coming and she doesn't like to see clutter at the hotel. I am aware that the hotel has absolutely no obligation to store our bags for the afternoon after we check out, but I have never stayed in a hotel that refused to help out. There were several empty rooms in the front of the hotel where the bags could have been placed out of the way. There was literally no one in the hotel. It seems like horrible customer service to refuse to do something so simple as store our two bags for a few hours. Luckily a nearby hotel agreed to keep our bags for the afternoon and was very happy to help out.

I will not return to this hotel. It is too far away from everything and the customer service is severely lacking. There are plenty of better options in Antigua.

They tell you that it is a centric location when it actually is very far away and lonely from central park. You walk 3 blocks to get to the parking lot which costs around $10.00 more aside from hotel fee. Cuatomer service is horrible, from the moment you get there till you leave. Rooms are small, humid and smelly. Food is not great either. It's the first time I stay there, and for what I paid, I could've stayed at a 4 stars hotel. Also, bugs everywhere!!! Terrible experience.

The staff is the main asset of the hotel. Anything else is over stated and priced.
It is located at the end of a street, at the edge of the city center, making the back and forth from the center not so enjoyable (polution from cars and busses and uneaven pavement). Breakfast is poor. Very noisy from cars and other guests. Internet signal is good, but only near reception. Shower is OK but water gets cold and super hot while you shower.
Luxurius or mid-range category is overstated. For $100 they charge you can get much better hotels max 2 blocks from the central square. They all have the charming colonial style.
I will not stay at this hotel again and do not recommend it, but staff were super kind and attentive.

Room Tip: If you dont need internet, perhaps the back rooms are better.

I found this hotel by chance, it is not well known by foreigners and that is why I love it so much..it is the typical place where you know the real people from town, and it was a hidden gem because it was just crossing the street for one of the important churches of the place, and in Holy Week that is an advantage...all the main events just in front of the hotel! Rooms are nice and clean, very quiet and charming, with a great terrace!
