The hotel is safe, clean and has friendly service. It's a little far from the downtown, but this facilitated a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Hotel is close to laundry facilities and convenience stores. Kitchen stuff gladly accommodated a vegetarian breakfast.

Such a quaint hotel away (but not too far) from all that you want to see in Antigua. I would be sure to know exactly where you are going and how to get there as the shuttle van and at least one tuktuk had no idea. Loved the courtyard and upper deck.

This hotel took 7 years to build. Small with a courtyard, 10 minutes walk from the main square, the hotel serves a continental breakfast. Not very big rooms but very confortable. I also didn't miss the fact they have no air conditionning or fan.

I have stayed at Hotel Candelaria several times over the last couple of years. The charm is never compromised, and the staff are always ready to serve and greet with a smile. The rooms are always clean, and Rodolfo, the manager, is always at our service. They go above and beyond to accomodate people. Candelaria is our home away from home.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, water was hot and beds were comfortable! Price included breakfast and off street secure parking(we rentted a car for trip). Hotel was very attractive with great ambiance - and had rooftop patio with excellent views of surrounding volcanos.

Today we checked out of Candelaria after a 7 night stay. My wife and I enjoyed Antigua and this hotel very much. Room was large. Flat screen TV with cable, bathroom was twice as large as mine back home.The roof garden offered incredible views of the 3 volcanoes. Cozy, quaint, and comfortable. Staff treated us as family. One night I asked to use the oven to reheat some pizza and was told "Mi casa es su casa". The place really felt like home. Would stay here again in a heart beat. Near town and easy to get around.

I had the privilege of spending a little over 2 weeks at this hotel. The rooms are very clean with hand carved furniture, and accomodations that surpass any expectations. The view from the hotel is breath-taking. The staff is warm and welcoming, and cared for us as if we were their own family. This hotel was out of the way of the noise of the city center, and offered peace and relaxation after long and busy days. The food was carefully prepared for us every day. We felt safe and comfortable, and we cannot wait to stay here in the future.

Room Tip: Each room is different from the others, and all offer a restful night and peaceful wake-up.
