First time in Guatemala... first time in a little corner of heaven! Friendly, cordial and respectful staff whose only desire seemed to make us feel at home and grant any of our wishes... Efficient, always smiling, always "asi es" (yes it is) to any of our wishes or requests. Delicious breakfasts we truly had "our way". Not once did Oscar...

Upon entry to the hotel the first thing one sees is a most beautiful courtyard with flowers and plants of all types.

The savory crepes and the omelets are very good. All in...

Hotel La Catedral was a small boutique hotel with an open courtyard full of lovely hanging orchids. The staff was truly helpful with reserving shuttles, making dinner reservations, etc., and they even had a phone available at any hour for guests to call anywhere in the world for free! Lovely rooms, Spanish style, lovely breakfast - a place to come...

What a wonderful boutique hotel to end our mission trip! Just a few hundred feet from the town square, you enter an unassuming door into a beautiful Spanish courtyard. We were quickly greeted by Marco who helped us with check-in. He offered great insight into the best restaurants, shopping, and tours. There are only 8 rooms but each are eloquently...

Once again, La Catedral was our choice for a few nights before going onto Lake Atitlan. We were in Room 8, which is our favorite because of its quiet location. As mentioned before, the location of the hotel is great only a few steps to the main square, and close to many good restaurants. We find the courtyard such a...

Located in an excellent location just a few blocks' walk to many attractions, I found the Hotel de Cathedral to be much nicer than I expected, with a simply beautiful courtyard, and comfortable, quiet, well appointed rooms in local rustic decor. It was hard to rate this, as it's probably a five star by local standards, but I subtracted a...

Highly recommend this boutique hotel.

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
