“Not posh, but a good budget option”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

I stayed at the La Sin Ventura for 2 nights after a medical mission in Guatemala. Our entire group stayed at this hotel so I’m not sure how much the rooms were per night. The sign out front said that you could stay for as little as $18 per night. If that’s true, it’s a good deal, but this is far from the nicest place in Antigua. It is reasonable, though if you want to be close to the center of town and are on a budget.

The Hotel is located a block from the main plaza, so the location is great. While most of the hotels in Antigua are hidden behind walls with pretty courtyards, this one is open to the street. The street level is a nightclub which is incredibly loud most evenings and you can pretty much hear everything as the walls are paper thin. It didn’t look like there were many people at the club, but the music blared until after 1AM. Make sure you bring earplugs!

There is no elevator, and the rooms are all on the second and third floor, so be prepared to haul your stuff upstairs. The check-in lobby is on the second floor and that is the only place you can ensure that you have internet access. There was patchy internet access on the third floor in our room, but you really cannot count on it.

The rooms are pretty sparse, but clean. My room had three double beds which were clean but not terribly comfortable. There is an old CRT TV which did get cable and several American channels. There is no air conditioning and the room has glass windows that open to a corridor (where everything can be heard). Some rooms got extremely hot at night and there is no fan in the room. The lights were bare bulbs and the bathroom was pretty small. Still, the shower was outstanding with hot water and great water pressure.

Good location with clean and bare bones accommodations. If you are on a budget, this would be a good choice. There are some really nice hotels in Antigua that are much nicer and more expensive, but this is a decent option.

While I did not stay at this property, I did have drinks at the bar. The location is really great as it is close to the square. Friday night was ladies night and they had rum and cokes for 3 Quetzales. The only downside was that at the level of volume they kept their music, one could only spend a limited time in there.

The location and the value are great. The rooms are spacious and the hot water pressure an absolute treat (best shower in Guatemala so far!). The wifi on the second floor wasn't working and the staff was in no hurry to fix it. There is a nightclub in the same building and the music could be heard at night. Having said that, it was a distant bass sound and monotonous enough to ignore. It kind of lulled me to sleep!
I would definitely stay again in this place.

This hotel is in the center of Antigua Guatemala, really well located!!! close to everything... the service is good. The only bad thing is the reception of Internet in the rooms, it is so slow!!!... the have 24hrs service, so the hotel is always open (some hotels in Antigua have close time, FYI) sometimes can be a bit noisy since other guest are having fun in the rooms, LOL... the price is $18, so not that bad. It is clean and they have hot water as well

For a budget traveler who isnt concerned about nightclub noise, this is the place. The staff is amazing, the price is super cheap, the rooms are clean and the location is the best in Antigua. The downside is that its right next to a bunch of nightclubs, so it can be noisy. I am here at least 10 times a year and love it.

Friendly staff, central location. WiFi reception in room at the end of the 1st floor hallway was a bit bad. Room was very large and tidy. Even though there was a salsa club below, little noise or disturbance of any kind.

At $18 US the price was right for this place. The rooms are tiny but clean and have a private bathroom. The shower was strong and hot and clean. Bring ear plugs as the noise will drive you crazy especially on the weekends when the bars are in full swing. The location is excellent and the staff is great. The wifi works very well. There is no TV.
You will pay about triple the price for a more comfortable room but for me it was not worth it.
