Hotel La Catedral is an authentic Spanish Colonial house, originally built as part of the "Palacio de los Capitanes Generales" in the center of Antigua, Guatemala. Its construction began in 1558. The space was rebuilt in 1754 and it was used as the residence of the General Capitan. The hotel is located one block from the Central Park and the Cathedral (Catedral de Santiago). It is within a minute or two walking distance from many restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and Spanish Colonial ruins. As one of the original structures in Antigua, Hotel La Catedral preserves its charm and elegance and it has been completely restored to bring you all the comfort and rest you're looking for during your stay. It has a very cozy and romantic environment, just like Antigua itself. The hotel has 8 rooms with a King Size bed or with two Full Size beds. Each room individually decorated to give you a slightly different feel each time you visit us. All of them are equipped with Flat Panel TV set, DVD Player, Cable TV, Security Box, Wireless Internet (at no additional cost), telephone and alarm clock.

We stayed one night at the hotel, the location just around the corner of the main Park with good restaurants to go for lunch and dinner. The staff was very friendly. Rooms are not huge but very comfortable, we got a room at the back of the hotel which was good to sleep as there was not a lot of noise.

We stayed at this hotel on our trip to Guatemala April 2022. Initially we booked for 2 nights but we ended up staying here for every night we had to spend in Antigua, we were going back and forth between locations. We traveled as a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and booked Room #9 with 2 double beds and an AC. There's so much to love about this little hotel. It's a gorgeous colonial mansion that was turned into a hotel. The rooms are around a beautiful courtyard, that is so well kept and a delight to sit there and have breakfast in the morning. The room was clean and the AC helped keep the room comfortable in temperature and the sound of it helped with covering with some of the outside sounds. The staff is very welcoming and always there to help. The hotel manager, Mr. Rudy, is always available to talk to his guests and make sure they are happy. In fact, we had to take a short trip to another city while we were staying at the hotel and Mr. Rudy offered to keep some of our luggage safe so that we don't drag everything with us, he was so thoughtful. The location of this property is perfect, centrally located to all the attractions. We loved going out in the morning and being able to come back to our room for some rest in the middle of the day, it worked perfect. It's a safe location and the hotel keeps the gates closed in the evening so safety is not an issue. However, as it is centrally located, it can get a bit of noise from the street but I always travel with earbuds when I know I will be in the middle of town. Also, I am not sure how ventilation is in other rooms that don't have an AC. This hotel made our stay in Antigua so memorable, we love all the staff there. You can't go wrong with Hotel La Cathedral.

As a solo female traveller I chose this because of location to be close to all attractions and this was great. Really central and very safe. Secure at night. They bolt the doors but you can knock and they will let you in so you are free to come and go. Rooms are not huge but they are cosy and clean which was fine for me. To be honest they are quite small but as a solo traveller I was fine. Felt like a home country bedroom! Bathroom was also small but I had no issue. I was out most of the time and just wanted a clean, secure and central place to sleep and shower. Staff were so sweet and nice. Like a family. Beautiful colonial like a mansion with lovely grounds that are well kept. My breakfast was included but I didn't eat at the hotel as I always prefer to explore and try different places. Wifi was hit and miss but this is common in Central America. This is a very good option and I would highly recommend. Just one negative which didn't bother me, but there was a bar or nightclub which appeared to be next door or close by. I can sleep through a warzone but if you are a light sleeper you may struggle. Just be mindful having travelled much of Central and South America that roads can be isolated at night and not always safe. This is close enough even for a single traveller to be able to go out in the evening as you are less than 5 minutes from all the main restaurants. I was travelling in Central America for a while and this was the third and best hotel for me in Antigua.

What a beautiful quaint boutique hotel. You feel like you are in Spain or Italy. Best location ever, half a block to cathedral and town center plaza, multiple restaurants and bars to walk to. Luscious courtyard and roof top with multiple comfortable, shade seating areas. Our king size room was absolutely stunning, very large comfortable bed, lockable safe, English TV, drinking water in room, super dark and quite at night. The bathroom has everything you need, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, hairdryer. They changed towels and cleaned room every day. You do not need AC and every room has an adjustable attic fan inlet. The included breakfast was very good with multiple choices, they even where able to accommodate a dairy free selection, bonus! Everyone at the hotel speaks English and is very nice and accommodating. They gave us a map of Antigua and marked historic sites and restaurant/bar locations. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this hotel

We spent just one night and it was perfect. Nice location in the heart of town just one block from Parque Centrale. Great staff who were very attentive (Rudi, Oskar). The interior garden is a nice space to take a break during the day and be sure to check out the rooftop area as well.

My 3-night stay was simply perfect. The location was ideal, everything was immaculately clean and beautiful, and I felt completely secure and at ease. Breakfast was delicious! And I loved going up to the rooftop for a fabulous panoramic view. It’s a great place to watch Volcan de Fuego letting off steam! Best of all was the warm and friendly service. I was treated like family. Everyone I encountered was wonderful, but Oscar especially stands out. He is a treasure. Excellent! This will definitely be my first choice for a hotel in Antigua.

I enjoyed this small, intimate hotel with rooms situated around the central, interior garden. I had a very good "topico" breakfast. The staff were very helpful, and the security was good. The hotel was formerly the home of a well-to-do family and it is well kept up.

We have stayed many times at this beautiful hotel and have never been disappointed. Marco the manager is extremely attentive, personable, and always willing to assist with all of our needs. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. There’s a breathtaking courtyard as well as a lovely rooftop sitting area with gorgeous views of the town. A special shout out to Oscar for the daily Spanish lessons, friendly conversation and delicious breakfasts. Can’t wait to return.

This is a beautiful boutique hotel with a decorative courtyard & a unique staircase leading up to the top of the hotel providing you with an amazing panoramic view of the jaw dropping landscape surrounding Antigua. From the movement we arrived, Marco at the the front desk was super helpful with our questions about bars & restaurants, tours, & about our room. Check-In was easy & super quick. Our room was nicely decorated & comfortable. The breakfast included was superb. The rest of the staff were amazing, particularly one individual whom I'd like to thank so much for his wonderful hospitality. Thank you Oscar, for being friendly and generous to us. You made our stay that much enjoyable & we appreciate all that you did for us. We can't wait to return to Hotel La Catederal. And the next time you are in Antigua, Guatemala, consider staying at this marvelous boutique hotel too.
