The hotel is just a block from the main square, which made it convenient to walk to the church on the square and local businesses. The facilities are just as described and as shown in the photos. The open central garden is beautiful and facility decor made us feel like we were living in the midst of Antigua's history. The... More

The location couldn't be better. One block from the central park so you can walk to and from all the popular spots after dark safely or easily return to the hotel during the day. The rooms were of a decent size, clean and with relatively hot water. It is a small hotel, I doubt if there are more than 6... More

We spent one night in this nice little hotel. I was unsure how many people were there, but it was not too many. We had a very nice room with a king sized bed just off the patio.

Located just one block from the Central Plaza, this hotel is very well located. The hotel is small but that is the beauty of it. The room have the old fashion look of Antigua. They also have their own parking which is very important in Antigua. The staff is the best, they treat us great!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. All bathrooms are stylishly and individually designed with antique marble. All toiletries and hair dryer also included. All our rates include, Full a La Carte Breakfast, free international calls to designated countries (time limited) and private parking in the same location. In the same facilities we have an equipped private meeting room and a Family Lounge-Bar. We also organize and coordinate your Tour needing's to any other beautiful destinations as well as transportation from and to Guatemala City. ... more   less
