If you’re looking for a quaint, quiet, safe place to stay I recommend El Carmen. Not a lot of bells & whistles, but I felt safe staying here & they have quiet hours after 10pm. It’s in walking distance to Antigua’s Central Park/restaurants. The staff, despite the language barrier, really goes above and beyond to accommodate you. Rooftop restaurant with a beautiful view, but the WiFi was spotty my first night. 3.5/5

Good location with parking, nice rooftop
Love hotel in a great location within walking distance to everything. Rooftop is lovely and solid breakfast options. Parking is offsite but close by and safe with 24 hour access.

El mejor hotel de antigua en su rango de precio
El hotel es excelente para su rango, camas súper cómodas y sabanas espectaculares. La terraza de restaurante es muy linda y se nota que algunas habitaciones han sido remodeladas (los baños específicamente). Nuestra habitación tenía baño aún viejo pero en excelente condiciones. Podría mejorar el tema del agua caliente, se que usan calentadores solares pero pareciera que no son suficientes. El agua sale más tibia que caliente.
