Having never been to Guatemala, let alone Antigua, we put our faith in TripAdvisor and ended up with reservations at Hotel La Catedral. And, how thankful we were. The hotel arranged for a gentleman to give us a ride from the airport, and when you arrive in a foreign country with your name on a board.. what could be better....

We recently visited Hotel la Caterdral for 4 nights. There are 8 rooms at this hotel so service is personal and was excellent.

Reviewed 4 March 2014

Prices have risen quite a bit in Antigua-Guatemala this past year, so the $125/night that we paid seems appropriate for the location of this boutique hotel located only 1/2 block from el Parque Centrale. It is a very nice little hotel with several issues that will keep it from becoming a 5 Star establishment. As previously mentioned, the location cannot...

We stayed at hotel la Catedral for one night when returning from a trip to Livingston and after a long bus ride, we were delighted to find that the hotel has one of those lovely courtyard gardens that lurk behind many a closed door in Antigua.

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
