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.
