Hotel Chez Daniel is an adorable hotel on the outskirts of Antigua. It has a B&B feel, with lots of greenery and plants throughout the property. Upon our arrival, Marleni welcomed us at the door and was very friendly, giving us suggestions on where to go in town for banks/ATMs, travel arrangements/tours, and grocery stores. Our room was on the second level, with a great location for viewing Pacaya volcano. The first day, the volcano was not visible due to the clouds, but on our second day, the clouds disappeared and we had great views of the volcano. Our bathroom was huge and our room had tons of storage (which we didn't end up using, since we packed light and lived out of our luggage). There was a cute little table and four chairs on the porch outside our room, where I camped out with a book one evening to read while facing the volcano. It was relaxing and peaceful.
We appreciated that Chez Daniel provided purified drinking water in the kitchen, which we were free to use. We also liked that we were able to store our water bottles in the fridge and freezer, so we could have cold water for our hike up Pacaya the next day. They also left out warm croissants and coffee for us on the morning when we did the Pacaya hike, since we had to leave before normal breakfast hours. The location of Chez Daniel is about a fifteen minute walk from Antigua's Parque Central, which is partly why I chose this hotel. I liked being a little removed from the center of the city, because I wanted to avoid noisy crowds on the streets during the nighttime. We could still hear pedestrians walking by on the street while we were sleeping, but it wasn't nearly as bad as if we would have stayed closer to the city center.
