Having never been to Guatemala, let alone Antigua, we put our faith in TripAdvisor and ended up with reservations at Hotel La Catedral. And, how thankful we were.
The hotel arranged for a gentleman to give us a ride from the airport, and when you arrive in a foreign country with your name on a board.. what could be better.
The hotel itself is located only a half block away from the famous Parque Central. The location could not have been more ideal. It is a small boutique hotel, absolutely beautiful. Complimentary breakfast every morning was delicious, authentic, and hearty.
If you want a pool, and a hotel that let's you pretend you're in America somewhere.. don't stay here. But if you want to feel like you're in Antigua, nothing could be better.
