Wonderfully located close to La Merced Church and a short walk to Park Central, this hotel provides a clean safe room for your adventures in this historic city. Rooms are very basic and well kept. Walls are thin, you you may want to pack some ear plugs in case you have a loud snorer next door (as I did).
I stayed here 6 nights during Semana Santa. The location allowed me to take breaks when necessary--and a number of the processions eventually marched right by the front of the hotel.
There are numerous warning about robbery in Guatemala, and this may be true since the hotel frequently locks it doors. A few times I had to knock and wait quite a while before the person on duty came to open up for me.
The people running the hotel are very friendly and helpful. The hotel isn't listed on regular online travel service portals, but they have a website (in Spanish). I used Google translator to navigate through and emailed them a query for space. They answered back within an hour. That reflects how all services are with this hotel--I'd definitely book with them again should I return to Antigua.
