“Nice hotel with a friendly staff”
Reviewed 14 December 2009

I had an overall nice experience at this hotel. The food was good, the staff friendly, and the location convenient. As a solo traveler, I felt that this was geared more towards families. The price is pretty average for a good hotel in Antigua Guatemala. But overall I would recommend it to others.

Porta Hotel is great. Our corner room had a fireplace, which was lit every evening to take the chill off, hotel was quiet, clean, grounds were beautiful, it was in a perfect location. The staff was friendly, and I would highly recommend this hotel

What a brilliant hotel! Love the staff, like friends! Love the location and wow how brilliant for young children. This hotel has the most genuine , helpful staff I have ever met and I miss it so much. The food is good although the snack menu is much cheaper than the main meal menu and it has lots of options.
My only advice is to select a room in the main complex and not across the street as those rooms lack atmosphere and are quite dark.
It if want to be critical and it is hard... I would want a hairdryer in the rooms although these are available from the desk. Great safes and bathrooms, great buffet breakfast and stunning grounds. There are weekend kids clubs when it does get busy but our kids loved all the facilities and sob... I wish I was there now!

We have stayed at the porta for the past 2 weeks and honestly felt it was the best hotel experience we have ever had. It is not cheap BUT the combination of a great location(short walk to parque central), stunning grounds, wonderful (and caring and smiling) staff, delicious (and well priced) food, really nice rooms and a great swimming pool - just makes this an unbeatable package.

Most of all we will remember the staff members who took the time to smile at us and our young children every day - without exception they were welcoming and friendly and professional at all times. If you can, stay here when in antigua guatemala

If you're looking for a great place to stay in Antigua, I highly recommend the Porta Hotel for the price, service and the beutiful hotel itself. My wife and I loved this place. It is within walking distance of central park, all the bars and most resturants in the area.

Reviewed 14 June 2009

I picked this hotel based on good recommendations on Trip Advisors. The hotel has all the amenities and a certain coolness factor. In order to get to our room from the front desk we had to walk through a tunnel that went under the street which added to the cool factor. They have artwork, statues and fountains all over. I read about noise from the cobblestone roads but we did not hear a thing. We also stayed in the area of the hotel that had a smaller more secluded pool. The main pool was nice but it is also in full view of the restaurant. They have 4 macaws that they let out during the day which is very nice. The only problem we has was a biggie. I had emailed with them and arranged for a driver from Guatemala city and the driver was a no show. I got lucky and found a reliable taxi driver and when I got to the hotel and told about the lack of a driver at the airport they did not seem that concerned. It is relatively expensive but worth it.
