Went to Antigua for the first time with a friend and stayed here because of some of the tripadvisor reviews, they were spot on. You are always greeted with a smile from the staff no matter how late and/or early you see them. We had to leave the hotel very early in the am many, many times during our trip...

My fiancé are marrying in Antigua next spring and were in town for the wedding preparation. We are on a budget so decided to give this place a try. At first we said even if this place isn't good it doesn't matter Bc we will not be spending too much time in the hotel. Well we were so so wrong!...

We had a great, although brief, stay at the Hostal San Nicolas in July 2016. We were two families, each with two parents and two older children. The accommodations were very comfortable. The rooms were adequate in size, but the accessible courtyard allowed us to be comfortable outside of the room, as well. Breakfast was wonderful. We felt like very...

A friend recommended this hotel to me and I was not disappointed! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpful, friendly and spoke English.

I stayed here with my sister and father. The lobby is dark wood an ancient stone, which opens to a lush courtyard. There are very few rooms which makes it feel very personal and cozy. They didn't have breakfast which would've been nice, but it makes sense because there are so few guests at a time and yet the price...

We stayed in Hotel San Nicolas for a weekend and immediately noticed the amazing rather older lady who was apparently in charge there. Servicing customers is her mother tongue and we were delighted by the amount of goodwill and courtesy which that Senora showed to us and to other guests. As for the place - it is very quiet and...

Charming place 5 mins walk from parque central. The beautiful garden next to the rooms is very peaceful and tranquil. You can enjoy your drinks after a long trek on your terrace. The staff is professional, genuine and helpful. My only concern, the bathroom is a bit small. Thanks to Rosanna for looking well after us.
