“Great location, helpful staff, super value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

This hotel is located within walking distance of everything in Antigua. The hotel is clean, comfortable and a bargain. They are responsive on email. They will help you arrange day trips and recommend sites. The breakfast around the corner is inexpensive and good. I highly recommend this hotel.

The staff really made a difference at Posada de la Merced, friendly, helpful, quick responders, really made you feel confortable. The home is very clean, always with beatiful flowers, great hot water at all times. Rooms are small and so are the bathrooms, but always clean. Enough and spotless towels. WIFI is ok. Just next to the house there is a very nice cafeteria. Very good service and good coffee. Good value for your money.

We stayed at Posada la merced and had a lovely time. The home has a well maintained and beautiful garden and a variety of room sizes.

Down sides:
Sometimes noisy groups
Rooms lead into a central courtyard that echos and the windows let a LOT of noise in so it can be quite noisy in the mornings
Internet is intermittent sometimes

Up sides:
Kitchen available
Lovely staff- very helpful and kind
Always had hot water
Beautiful rooftop terrace for looking at fuego volcano

The staff really make this posada a charming one! Jorge was super quick on my emails prior to my visit. Once i arrived, I felt totally at home. The room was small but clean and had everything I needed. Super hot water! While showering, I actually noticed how white the grout between the tile was. The front desk staff was EXCELLENT, answered tons of questions, booked tours, made helpful notations on the (provided) map, and were really my guides to the city. The location of Posada La Merced is perfect. I am the kind of girl who gets lost easily, but I could always orientate myself to La Merced Church and also the famous Arch. Easy! The rooftop terrace was lovely and so were the gardens. Also, wifi was very good. Thank you, thank you. Would definitely stay here again and will recc to my friends!

Room Tip: Rooms are nice & fresh. I bet all of them are very good!

We stayed 2 nights and had the biggest room available (confort room), it was for 3 people but we were only 2;,3d. bed was apart in another room ( without door). Bathroom big enough, clean and hot water all the time. Enough towels also. There is a table and chairs just outside the room if you want to read or eat there. You have water and coffee/tea for free.

Very peaceful atmosphere, quiet, birds, plants and flowers everywhere, the roof top with an overall view of Antigua & volcanoes and you can take something to eat & drink and watch the peaceful sundown/sunset. Massages are available, ( try chocolate massage) ! and an internet point for free, also WIFI for free.
All the staff ready to help and very friendly !
Just want to go back there again !

After a weekend of R&R with our group of 19 that built 2 houses for Habitat, I stayed on by myself (a sr. female) for 2 additional days of R&R and had a wonderful time. I felt perfectly safe there and also while exploring the streets and parks by myself. Jorge and his staff run a very comfortable home-like hotel which is close to everything. The rooms are very small but who wants to spend time in your room with the lovely courtyard and rooftop available - there is an opportunity to meet others strolling though the areas as well. There is even a communal fridge available to store your wine or snacks. A very relaxing and reasonably-priced hotel, even during the busy time of Holy Week in April. Thank you for everything. Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

This a nice, well situated hotel with a lovely rooftop terrace. The only problem was, the rooms are in an open courtyard and voices outside the rooms are VERY loud. We stayed at the same time a group of American college kids and just their comings and goings late into the night were very loud. Also, no tvs at all but free wifi.
