“Great location, Great owner and Staff”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

The hotel has tiny rooms, but the location and the incredibly helpful owner, Alvaro, more than make up for the small rooms. Alvaro helped us with seeing the city on foot, giving great advice on where to eat, buy groceries, places to see and tours to take. His staff is also very pleasant giving the feeling of being a guest, not at a hotel.

Recommendations: bring a set of earplugs as hotel has street noise and can have common area noise (we bring earplugs to all hotels).

With the shower, set with a small amount of water as the heater is on demand and if you push too much pressure through it, you won;t get the hot water you desire.

We will return to this place.

Room Tip: Rooms come with two singles or a double bed. We booked easily through the facebook page.

Reviewed 31 January 2014 via mobile

I would like to start by emphasising that this budget hotel has a very friendly and helpful day manager (Don Alvaro) and great night staff. They were willing to help when our 9 sqrm room (including a tiny shower) felt horribly damp and stuffy. Unfortunately there was not much they could do. Our room (two small single beds and no wardrobe) was on the ground floor, so we couldn't leave the window open (no security screen or bars on the window frame). Even after two quick showers the room was unpleasantly humid.

The hotel is reasonably well located, it felt safe and clean. However, we had the opportunity to go back there (on our second stay in Antigua) and we did not go back.

Excellent location. Room is spotless. Sheets on bed were embroderied. Courtyard is beautiful. It reminded me of a New Orleans secret garden. Bathroom is very tiny, with just enough room to move. Very safe and friendly staff. Minimal english spoken, yet very helpful. It will definately be the place we stay on our next visit.
