Posada Don Valentino is a great place to stay in Antigua. It is within a short waling distance to Parque Central and has a very friendly, well-spoken (English and Spanish) and helpful staff. I'd put their hospitality at the top of any hotel/accommodation that I've been to. The staff answered many questions that I had and if they didn't know the answer, they looked it up online or made a phone call - very smart indeed! Most places anywhere won't go through that much trouble. Casi and the rest of the staff have a great command of English and again, were very helpful.
There's a nice kitchen to cook or store food and a nice garden area to eat. I was fortunate to have enough time to relax on their beautiful couch in the lounge to read.
The outside courtyard looked nice. I did not have a chance to use it.
The only slight downfall are the following. The place could use some updating. My room #107 was a bit small, but comfortable. You could hear any loud talking down the hall in the lobby and/or media room, but it was done by 9am in the morning and 9pm in the evening. The rest of the time was very quiet. I was told by others that the upstairs bedrooms were a bit larger and quieter.
I felt very safe here. You can even exchange your money at the front desk. You won't get a great rate (as per any hotel), but the convenience for me one time was well worth it.
Overall this is a great place. You won't go wrong staying here. I'd stay here again.
