    A sense of history


    This was a real gem of a hotel. It’s by no means the most expensive in Antigua (that honour probably goes to the Casa Santo Domingo), nor the cheapest, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and the character for what we paid. Like many of the city’s hotels it is located within an old colonial house, or rather, within three houses that have been cleverly combined to create a sprawling but at the same time intimate posada.

    The 41 rooms are arranged around courtyards. We were fortunate to get one (room 310) at the back, as I’ve read reviews that say those on the street side can be noisy (we did though experience a bit of noise from the kitchen behind first thing in the mornings, as breakfast is served from 6.30). We were on the first floor, with seating and a hammock right outside our door. Inside the room was spacious enough for our needs and furnished with traditional old wood. There was a large shower and separate WC, with basic toiletries provided.

    The restaurant here (photo 5) gets good reviews, although the only meal we ate here was breakfast on our first morning (breakfast was not included in our room rate). This was good – traditional huevas rancheros with toast and pineapple jam, fresh juices and good coffee – and cost 114 Q for two. At lunch and dinner a traditional marimba band plays in the courtyard outside the restaurant. Depending on your taste that might be a pleasure or a bit of an irritation!

    Unique Quality: The staff were all very helpful, one happily calling our tour company to check details for our transfer to Panajachel, and another assiduously calling the same company when the driver was just 20 minutes late (not his fault – the road outside was closed to traffic and he was trying to get close to the hotel). And we really appreciated the offer of a welcome drink when we arrived after a long journey – a choice of soft drinks, fresh juice, tea, coffee or beer, to be brought to our room. We chose the beer, our first Gallo, and enjoyed unwinding before tackling the unpacking.

    There is a lovely roof terrace with great views of the city (see photo 4) and one room is furnished with old paintings and furniture from colonial times and rather grandly labelled a museum.

    There are two computers just off the lobby offering guests free internet access, although on one the keyboard was so worn that we struggled to use it.

    Directions: Two blocks north of the Parque Central on 5a Avenida Norte (here known as Calle del Arco), and just south of the Arco de Santa Catalina (on the right if walking north)

    Posada de Don Rodrigo


    A beautiful hotel with a gorgeous courtyard. There is entertainment in the courtyard in the evening. The hotel has a restaurant with a view of one of the nearby volcanoes. A very enjoyable stay. We even booked a stay in their sister hotel in Panajachel.

    Directions: A block or so from the main square.

    Convenient Location


    This is a gorgeous 220 year old property right in the center of town. It's a 1st class hotel with a pool and all. The only thing is tour groups are often here so it can get pretty busy. It's a little pricey for Antigua at about $100.00 per night.

    Unique Quality: Its a great location with lots of restaurants nd shops right outside the door.

In Antigua, Posada de Don Rodrigo and also the Hotel Panza Verde. Both beautiful. If you stay at Don Rodrigo, ask for a room away from the street and the Arch. the Street is noisy and the Arch has a bell that rings every half hour ALL night. The food at both places is excellent. They are both beautifull colonial with gardens.

Nice hotel in Panajachel

by mad4travel about Hotel Posada de Don Rodrigo Panajachel

A lovely hotel right on Lake Aticlan
There are several buidings with hotel rooms plus a restaurant and swimming pool.
The room I was in had a large chimera style fireplace and chimney in the room - very nice.

you can walk out from the back of the hotel down to the beach to view the lake. The front of the hotel is on the main road in Panajachel with all the market stalls on.

General Consensus: Accommodations All Over!

by keelyr84


I have pretty much figured out where I will be staying while traveling through Guatemala. Before making any reservation, I would love to get some feedback on the cleanliness, comfort, convienience, location, hospitality of these places. Thanks!

1) When visiting Tikal, would you reccomend that I stay in Tikal (Jaguar Inn), Flores (Jaguar Inn, Hotel Mirador del Lago), or El Remate (whats a good place here?)?

2) Lanquin - El Retiro (Is there any way to make reservations?)

3) Antigua - Any idea where to stay???

4) Lake Atitlan - La Casa del Mundo or Isla Verde?

5) Rio Dulce - Hacienda Tijax or Tortugal?

SOOO many choices! Very overwhelming, advice would make this so much easier!

No suggestions other than 2 areas;

Antigua....I agree that Posada De Don Rodrigo is very nice with a good restaurant but the price runs around $70.00 per night. The staff is knowledgeable, helpful and multilingual. It is a pleasure to stay there. If you want less expensive digs (but smaller and noisier) La Sin Ventura is pretty good at around $25.00 per night. They have a club that makes things pretty noisy on the weekends and the concrete construction means it's an echo chamber. On the plus side (beyond price) they are half a block from the square and have a very good coffee bar. Get a room that is as high as possible for ventilation and less noise. There are any number of places to stay in Antigua but these two will cover most of the options.

Panajachel/Atitlan....Casa del Mundo is fabulous, relatively inexpensive, friendly and often booked. Call/email as early as possible. It's actually located in a village called El Jaibalito that is a 10 or 15 minute boat ride from Pana. There isn't much to do in El Jaibalito but Casa del Mundo makes it worth the trip and boats are readilly available to take you to other destinations. Don't miss Santiago Atitlan.

It's a great country full of great people. Have fun....Don
