So I did not stay here, but the grounds are superb and a wonderous place to explore. They have several museum and beautiful ruins that will give you hours of interesting fun. The best, though, is their restaurant on Cerro Santo Domingo. The outdoor art is PHENOMENAL! Do yourself a favor and take the free shuttle up there and you will be blown away by the variety of outdoor art. The restaurant has yummy food and a spectacular view, too!

Built on the ruins of an old monastery, this hotel is beautiful and unique. It evokes the colonial period of Spain's occupation of Guatemala. The hotel is safe and the grounds are exquisite. Everything about the service is first-rate. In my three-day stay I only managed one complaint: they charge for Internet wi-fi service. When I am paying $200 a night for the room, I think they can provide free wi-fi. But honestly, this is a fantastic place to stay. If you are going to Antigua you need to spend some time at this hotel. Other reviews here extoll its virtues, and they are correct. It is a beautiful hotel, beautifully operated. Stay here and be enchanted!

Although it was a business trip, my 4 days at Hotel Casa SAnto Domingo where just amazing. There is nothing that would really describe the uniqueness of the place until you are there. Great rooms, huge bathrooms, and just an overall experience.
During the nights is when the real magic comes into place, all the candlelights around the hotel, the nature comes together with the hotel areas.
Coming from a caribbean place, having the chimney in the restaurant running during the nights, with the great "asados" (beef mainly grill style but with their special flavor)... it was great.
Walk around the hotel, visit the museums and definitely if you are considering a wedding... ahhh!!! it should really be a lovely place to get married!

Room Tip: ASk for the back rooms, the ones in front can be a little noisy from the all the traffic in the mornings

I'm happy to add my voice to the chorus of positive reviews for the Casa Santo Domingo. It is a magical place in a magical town. I had eaten at the restaurant on previous trips but this was the first time I stayed at the hotel and I was not at all disappointed. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a fireplace and tasteful decorations. Just outside the door were candles and statuary. The grounds are museum-like and the tubs of water with rose petals are a luxurious touch. There was a wedding taking place on the property while we were there so there were hundreds of candles lit for the occasion--beautiful. Be sure to do the Sunday brunch if possible. The price for the hotel is more than reasonable by US standards.

I travel frequently for work and find myself in all sorts of hotels of varying quality and construction.

Casa Santo Domingo might be my all time favourite.

Built on the ruins of a monestary, the hotel evokes the colonial capital that Antigua was. The museums on site add to the magic.

The rooms are simple, big and clean.

The food is good.

And the staff is wonderful.

I hope I have a chance to get back.
