We were very happy with our stay at Palacio de Dona Leonor. The location couldn't be more perfect, as it's literally a few steps from the main square and the cathedral. The courtyard in the centre of this hotel is lovely and green, with a few tables off to one side for dinner and breakfast. Meals were delicious, by the way, with excellent choices for breakfast. We had dinner there twice, and the third night had dinner at Tartines, a terrific French restaurant right across the street.
We stayed in two different rooms - one for the first two nights of our trip to Guatemala and a different one on the last night of our trip. The first weekend overlapped a Saturday night, and I did find the street noise a little loud. On our return (also a Saturday night), we requested a quiet room, and didn't hear a sound from the street. Both rooms were very clean and well-appointed.
One note on the service - a previous reviewer commented on the fact that not everyone spoke English. I actually thought the service was excellent. Most of the front desk staff spoke at least some English and were more than happy to help. While not all wait-staff in the restaurant spoke English, I know that when I'm in a foreign country the onus lies on me to be understood. A little Spanish-English phrasebook went a long way in helping bridge the gap!
