Reviewed 9 September 2013 via mobile

Rooms are set around a beautiful green courtyard, with comfy cushioned benches to relax in. Staff are very friendly. Internet connection was good and fast and the breakfast in the morning was fantastic! Rooms are nice, have wonderful fluffy bed covers and the maid leaves chocolate!! Location is just off the Central Park so couldn't be much better.

We visited Hotel Catedral last November and were very impressed with its charm and price. We were two couples who felt very comfortable and immensely enjoyed our time there. The rooms were lovely, and the breakfast was delicious. The staff were very accommodating, and the hotel is right in the city center. I think you will enjoy your stay here. We feel it is a place we will certainly return to in the future.

We had a marvelous 3 night stay here in July. In the evenings, the most lovely fragrant blooms and smells just lovely! The breakfasts were delicious and so pleasant in the courtyard. The location is great - just off the main square. The staff is very attentive.

A comfortable small hotel around courtyard garden. Pleasant, professional, helpful staff. Hard to fault it really, though it doesn't have a restaurant, which is a bit of a nuisance if you arrive late or for those times when you've been walking the streets all day and don't want to go out again.

They also arranged our transport back to Guatemala City, which for only US$5.00 more was sheer luxury compared to the broken down wreck another hotel had sent to collect us.

We could only stay one night because it was the week of a long national holiday in El Salvador and rooms weren't available, but we'd definitely use it again.

Hotel La Catedral is located down the street from the main square of Antigua. I cannot imagine a better location.

Staff is very friendly. We loved the bartender, Ari, who was so personable and bought my husband's favorite Guatemalan beer to serve us the second day after he didn't have it on the first day. The front desk staff was very prompt and eager to help with directions and tourist-y recommendations (one drew us a driving map to Vulcan Pacaya when he couldn't find an actual map).

We had a corner room, and while it was small, it was comfortable. There was a large TV. The bathroom was fine, albeit with quirky hot water. The walls were thick, so it was quiet, but that meant that the wifi signal was weak.

The included breakfast was really good and plentiful.

We highly enjoyed our 3-day stay at La Catedral for its excellent location, its very friendly staff and its delicious breakfast. The rooms are kind of limited in space which is rather normal for this kind of accommodation in Antigua.
On a less favourable note, we can solely mention some noisy neighbours who have already left... and it was pure hazard, of course.

Room Tip: Rooms without windows towards the street.

.. but that's just my own personal quirk! You must admit, though - they are the best!!

I digress....

Every good thing written about this wonderful hotel and the helpfulness of Marco the Day Manager is accurate. The Hotel is wonderfully located right near the main square, the room we had (Number 5) was quite roomy and the breakfast was a perfect size (not to mention really yummy selection).

A great couple of days as a base in Antigua.
