I've stayed at this hotel multiple times in the last five years. Never disappointed with the service or the accommodations. I would recommend only one person in a single room as the bathrooms in the single rooms are small.
Lovely hotel, great and kind staff. Small but comfy room and tiny bathroom but all made good because of great water pressure and lots of hot water. Lovely roof deck for relaxing. Nice, generous and well priced breakfast. Only suggestion would be to allow guest access to a fridge where we could store cold drinks. They did let me use the one in the kitchen but they close this early evening so not much good if you would like to chill a bottle of wine for an evening drink on the terrace.
We stayed at Hotel Las Camelias during Semana Santa, 2019. The hotel itself is charming. There is a courtyard with a little fountain in the center of the hotel where you can sit and sip a cup of coffee. Interesting decor throughout the common areas. We enjoyed a choice of breakfast entrees on the roof deck, which had a beautiful view of the city. Staff is very attentive. The rooms are very basic but also clean. Bathrooms are tiny. Remember, you are staying in a colonial city where many buildings are very old. If I could do it again, I’d request a second floor room. You’ll need to keep the windows open and on the first floor, that meant hearing the comings and goings of guests walking through the courtyard. Also try to avoid the room nearest the kitchen.
This is a reasonably priced property and rooms are basic but very comfortable. As others have stated, bathroom is small. But the setup with shower and toilet in bath, and sink in room allowed for flexible use of the space by myself and my roommate. Rooms are situated around a small, central courtyard where flowers were in beautiful bloom. The view of the volcanoes from the rooftop deck is exceptional. Beer is available for purchase (until 10PM) and sipping our beers while watching Fuego was a fabulous experience. Complimentary coffee is available 24/7, an essential for early morning airport departures. Staff was friendly and helpful. Secure off street parking is available adjacent to the property. Location cannot be beat. It is within easy walking distance of all that Antigua has to offer. Noise can be a factor, especially on a busy Saturday night in the city. Traveling with earplugs is always helpful:)…
My wife, son and I stayed here during our time in Antigua for 3 nights. We found this place to be very convenient, well located, fare price and friendly staff. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom/shower. Breakfast was good. I would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Antigua.
This is my third time staying at this hotel and it is alway very relaxing. They have a roof-top seating area for you to lounge around on, drink a beer, meet with a group, or have breakfast on. Excellent views of the town and the volcanos. Small, medium and large rooms with single and multiple bed options.
This place was simply charming. Courtyard with flowers in bloom. Upstairs patio with a view of the volcanos. My 2 bed room was very basic but only cost $45 USD per night. No A/C (but there was a ceiling fan) and the room was not very large, but it was had an authentic air, and I was NOT looking for the "American Experience". Esmerelda made my visit much more pleasant. So cheerful and helpful! And a plus was that they have a posted "Quiet Time" policy. So enjoyed my 2 day visit that this was where I returned to later in the week when I found myself in Antigua again.
My husband and I stayed in Antigua 5 days. The last 2 nights were spent in Las Camelias. It is located in a beautiful colonial building. We spent the first night in a second story room that was pretty small due to the fact that the hotel was completely packed with a group of health workers who were departing the next day. We could barely walk around, given that it had 2 beds and we had a dog. It did boast a gorgeous overlook on an open brick patio which we enjoyed. We could see both volcanos. For our second night we requested a larger room. This room was downstairs and very nice. Downstairs there were several sitting areas, and we were able to visit with an old friend we ran into and talk for several hours. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms very clean and well stocked with bath items. They provided a dog bed for our dog and took care of a load of laundry perfectly. They also recommended an incredible restaurant. We were very happy here!…
The staff was very friendly and it was easy and affordable to book tours and transportation with them. The room was clean and basic, no complaints about it. The view from the terrace is beautiful and you can have breakfast there. The hotel is within walking-distance from the center.
It was one of the worst experiences with hotels i've ever had. Starting with The parking lot it has nails and glass all over i got a flat tire. It was expensive and the room extremely little as was the bathroom 😣.But not only was it little the bathroom has no windows and you can smell everything in the room, the shower floor dirty. Honestly i've stayed in plenty hotels in Antigua and i've had my money's worth paying 10 bucks a night with a huge better experience then this one.
