Located about three blocks from Parque Central, this hotel — owned by a corporation — offers many of the amenities you can expect to find at an international hotel. Its large, elegant rooms also have the same, somewhat sterile ambiance you can find in any city in the world. Fortunately, the rooms are built around a courtyard setting. You’ll be nickel and dimed at a high rate for everything — you’ll have to pay for Wi-Fi, coffee, and water. There’s a pricey restaurant inside the property.

About a 20-minute drive from Antigua, some entrepreneurial friends decided to turn their weekend getaway spot into the Guatemalan shire. High up, it affords a great view of the region and on a clear day, it’s possible to see five volcanoes. Development is still ongoing, but this lodge already has a cabin in place and camping grounds for those looking to experience a fantastic sunset/sunrise view, without the need to climb nearby volcanoes.

  1. We stayed at http://www.hotelsorjuana.com 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.

  4. IMO, the best thing to do when traveling in a family, or with friends, is to rent a house on Airbnb. I have family in Guatemala and have rented some wonderful houses where we were able to make breakfast, relax, park our cars, and be close to the Central Park for $100/night for 9 people. You can’t beat the price while also staying in a typical Antigua house complete with a courtyard garden!
