Very unusual in that the hotel is surrounded by different types of museums. Art, silver, catacombs, etc and you wander from one to another and can exit blocks away. Much is Spanish colonial, so religious related artifacts. A catholic would enjoy a wedding here

Really amazing that the private sector has stepped up to preserve this significant archeological site and to house these collections. The catacombs are amazing but the two art museums are worldclass. The one juxtaposing the old with the new should be on every art lover’s...More

This is a very lovely example of a ruin taken over by a private concern and made available to the public and not only to customers who can afford an expensive hotel and restaurant. Visit this lovely place.

Surprising gem in the middle of Antigua. We went there after returning from the morning tour in Pacaya. You can wander about the beautiful small yards for a couple of hours. Don't miss it.

For Q48 is it “expensive”. You can walk around in the ruines which are now mostly used for hotel purposes. I have to say, the location looks absolutely stunning but the museums are not that interesting and don’t offer a lot of historical information about...More

You do not need air conditioning. It's not that hot in Antigua during the summer. We stayed at Porta Hotel Antigua and just ate at Santo Domingo so I don't know.

They have fans on ceiling. The trees and plants provides a nice fresh air around the site.

Yes. But town is very unagreeable to drive around (narrow streets and difficult to park day time).
