Antigua Guatemala Hotels: Where to Stay

There are many exceptional Antigua Guatemala hotels and hostels – here are the ones we recommend above all others:


Yellow House Hostel: Of the cheap ones, one of the best Antigua Guatemala hostels of the bunch. Great terrace, friendly staff, clean rooms, good WiFi, and breakfast included? Sign me up. (1ra Calle Poniente #24). Under $25.

El Hostal Bed & Breakfast: Everyone raves about the free breakfast and hot showers. Staying close to Antigua’s center doesn’t have to be expensive. (1ra Avenida Sur #8). Under $25.


Hotel Casa CristinaLove this hotel near La Merced Church. Conveniently close to everything. It is clean, the water is hot, decorated wonderfully, and the views from the terrace amazing. (Callejon Camposeco, between 6ta and 7ma Avenida). Under $50.

Posada La Merced: Clean rooms, safe area, friendly staff. (7ma Avenida Norte #43). Under $100.

Casa Florencia Hotel: Beautiful hotel. A bit on the far side of town, something to keep in mind if walking back late. Other than that, excellent service, clean rooms, and quiet surroundings. (7ma Avenida Norte #100). Under $100.

High End

Meson Panza Verde: Luxurious hotel with a restaurant to match. (5ta Avenida Sur #19). Over $100.

Porta Hotel Antigua: Have not stayed here, but have been inside for activities. Good pool, beautifully decorated hotel. (8va Calle Poniente #1). Over $100.

  1. We stayed at last week and it was incredibly charming. It is on the outskirts, which means a 5 min walk to the park, but I personally appreciated a quiet place to retreat to after the day’s activities. The hotel itself has beautiful rooms and grounds, and a rooftop terrace that has to be seen. A good breakfast every day is included, and on top of all of that, the staff there is the friendliest I’ve encountered at any hotel. Cost ranges from $65 to $100 depending on the season and the room.

  2. We have stayed twice at Panza Verde Hotel. It is filled with antiques and the greatest staff.
    their rooms and suites are well worth the price. And it is 3-4 blocks from the main park. A nice continental breakfast every morning. We spent a lot of time on the different rooftop sitting areas.

  3. i’ve stayed in many hotels in Antigua. Many of them have a noise issue…the closer to the center, the higher the volume. My favorite is Casa Florencia….a bit of a walk but well worth…the place is secure, clean and comfortable.

    • Hi Patricia,

      You make a great point about the noise! Always good to consider that when booking a place to stay. Thanks for your input.
