“So Happy!”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

It has been 17 years since we stayed at your hotel. I was not sure I could ever find it again and was so happy to find it still in business and thriving. We stayed three days and had a wonderful time way back then. I am hoping to return one day soon! I know this is not really relevant now but I wanted you to know that we remember a wonderful time with spacious rooms, friendly staff, good location and delicious food.

p.s. the date submitted below is not correct of course - but it was May. 1996 - good memories!

Room Tip: We had a room on the courtyard and thoroughly enjoyed the music from the restaurant. We even had a...

We had our wedding in Antigua and we had all of our 70 guests stay at this hotel and there are no words to express our gratitude to the whole staff of Posada de Don Rodrigo. Here are some highlights:

1. The owner helped us planned the group stay from beginning to end even on her day off.

2. We arrived in a big bus and the hotel helped us get permits so the bus can enter the streets of Antigua at no cost, they were on the phone and all was set in less than 30 minutes.

3. When we arrived the staff put all the luggage for 70 ppl in less than 10 min inside a holding room since we arrived prior check-in time. They were literately running in and out, I had never had such excellent service

4. Once all the luggage was in they were taking them to the respective rooms as they were ready by reading the name tags on the rooms so when all our guests arrived they were already there. The coordination was truly amazing.

5. The hotel is beautiful, all the rooms and grounds are kept in great condition and our guests loved them. Great for pictures!

Our experience with this hotel was nothing less of a 5 star rating, thank you Posada de Don Rodrigo!

We arrived very late in the evening and were initially a little disappointed. The character of the place means it has old double wooden barn doors into a dark reception. We were allocated a bedroom with similar style doors, sparsely furnished and a small window onto a dark corridor. We just decided to get some sleep but the room whilst clean was still dark and uninviting in the morning. We found the hotel to be built around 2 beautiful courtyards but one was definitely brighter than the other and asked to move rooms to one which was much lighter and brighter. The staff agreed and from then on the whole experience was excellent. The gardens, although small are well tended, the dining area is very nice and the food was good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very central for walking around the beautiful city and there are numerous bars and restaurants nearby.

Stayed here 1 night with my wife, brother and his girlfriend at the end of October 2013. We had booked with Posada de Don Rodrigo as we were going to stay in Panajachel the following night and decided to stay at their other property. Their website stated if you stayed in both properties you were eligible for a discount. We were really happy with this hotel. The hotel is 1 block away from "Parque Central" (central park). Parking was across the street. Check in was fast and easy. We were in rooms 100 and 102. The rooms were very large. Room 100 has two queen beds. The rooms didn't have a ceiling fan or AC, so it was a little stuffy. The room did not have a safe. We did notice that it was a little noisy at night as people passed in front of our hotel room window, but we are used to city noise, so it wasn't a problem. The room had good free wifi and there were a lot of English speaking channels on the TV. Our room included a free breakfast served in the hotel restaurant. The breakfast was very good.The restaurant is semi open facing a beautiful garden. The hotel grounds are very pretty. Would definitely stay here again when in Antigua.

From the moment I arrived to the hotel, I knew I was at the right place. All the workers are attentive, courteous, and helpful. The hotel has an atmosphere of total relaxation and it really puts you back in time with the way the buildings have been restored.
The restaurant staff knew us all by name and were friendlier than any I've ever experienced. The food was amazing and the plates were large and filling.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that face the main street so that you can have a view of the volcano and the clock...

There were a series of courtyards upon entry that were nicely landscaped. In my wing (Rooms 101 - 108), there were french doors used to gain entry to my room. I couldn't walk in with my suitcase or wearing a day pack. I would have had to unlock the second door to step straight into the room. This would mean re-bolting that same door to leave, so I just turned sideways to come and go. Certainly not the easiest way to enter and leave a room; pretty to look at though not particularly useful. This wing was also on a busy side street that was noisy at night. Because I was on a tour and our mornings came early, getting a good night's sleep was hard, even with ear plugs. The hotel restaurant was open into the courtyard where my room was located and though it closed before 10 pm, cleanup was noisy until after 11 pm. There were other more interior courtyards and second floor rooms that probably would have been much quieter.

Room Tip: If you are traveling and making your own arrangements, ask for rooms that are on inner walls, not ov...

We are very sorry to hear that you had an uncomfortable night because of the noise on the corridors and restaurant. We have a flexible policy to change our guests to other rooms if they request it. Because the hotel is a monument, we have very specific rules and regulations on what we can and can´t modify in the hotel according to (El Consejo de Protección de Antigua), and the doors is one of those things we can´t...

Again we apologize for the inconvenient, but hope to serve you again in the near future and accommodate you in a better way.

Kind Regards,
Management
