“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

I visited to Sor Juana with my mom and we were both completely struck by the style and comfort that Sor Juana offered. Julio gave us a tour of this cozy hotel that is hidden away from the normal hustle and bustle of Antigua, and we felt so lucky that we had chosen this place to stay while in Antigua. Breakfast that following morning was also amazing, as we had views of Volcan Fuego and surrounding Guatemalan hills. I will definitely recommend Sor Juana to anyone looking for the perfect hotel during their stay in Antigua.

From the moment we entered the front door, we were treated like royalty. This small hotel looks unremarkable from the outside, but is a beautiful mixture of the 16th Century convent from which it arose and a modern, comfortable living space. It is spacious, beds are comfortable, and the view both inside and out are unparalleled. Only 4 blocks from the main plaza, very quiet at night.
Highly recommended! Thank you Julio.

Room Tip: We got a tour, and every room is perfect!

The super helpful and friendly staff, the well decorated and comfortable room, the location, the delicious breakfast on the rooftop with one of the best views of Antigua, made our weekend getaway in Antigua such a pleasurable experience that we promised we'll go back to Hotel Sor Juana!

Only 5 rooms but what rooms! Each one is a suite, totally charming and completely different from the next (we looked). Having a rooftoop breakfast was a unique and fun experience. A short (10 minute) walk to the city center. A great value and super quality.

I toiled with the idea of writing a review purely on account of wanting to keep Sor Juana a secret but that would seem unfair to other travellers. I also wanted to exhaust the professionalism of Julio and Jimmena who were helpful from booking to paying attention to our every need during our five day stay. I felt looked after in a very positive way. Sor Juana does Antigua proud. The hotel has character and a deep sense of history within its walls. It has been thoughtfully decorated to a high standard and is both comfortable and enchanting. Other reviewers oh this site have felt the rooms lacked light. Personally I don't see this as a problem. Breakfast was served on a splendid roof terrace with amazing views to the surrounding volcanoes. The coffee flowed without prompting. Traditional breakfast served with a tropical twist. The secret is now out and I hope other travellers treat Sor Juana with the respect and kindness it deserves. Well done a highlight and place to return to in the future.

During a week visit to Guatemala, we stayed at this charming little inn twice, both times in the same big comfortable room, #4. The atmosphere was charming; we particularly loved the open air roof terrace for breakfasts. Staff was accomodating, finding decaf coffee for us, for example, after we passed up the caffeinated variety! Location is perfect in that it is quiet but minutes away from the busier parts of Antiqua, including markets and restaurants. Only quibble is our room was very dark and could have used a few more lamps since natural lighting was scarce. However we appreciated the 17th century charm of an early convent.

Room Tip: Ask for an extra lamp!

A wonderful place to call home while visiting Antigua! The staff is so friendly and accommodating, tending to your every need.

The rooms are well appointed, comforting and beautifully decorated. The rooftop patio is simply amazing and the breakfasts are fresh and yummy!

A great value for the quality!! Definitely stay here'
