Tucked down a cobblestone street, this former Spanish colonial casona offers an atmospheric home base for exploring historic Antigua. Take your breakfast of freshly squeezed juices, tropical fruits, house-made tortillas and local Chiltepe sauce on a rooftop patio overlooking the volcano. Then retire to one of the seven rooms, which surround a lush courtyard. Each has beds covered in colorful Mayan textiles, carved wood sculptures and hand-hammered copper accents. Many have romantic, wood-burning fireplaces.
In the Area
Arched walls, ornate cathedrals and cobblestone streets romance history lovers in historic Antigua. Dip into the city’s heritage at the Museum of Colonial Art, a massive collection of sculptures, paintings and furniture in grand 16th- and 17th-century buildings. The tree-lined Parque Central has daytime craft vendors, a beautiful 1738 fountain and nightly live music. Grab a seat on the patio of the Restaurante Doña Luisa Xicotencatl and indulge in cafe con leche and freshly baked breads and pastries. At night, join the locals dancing salsa and merengue at La Chimenea.
How to Get There
We decided to spend a little bit more money on this hotel than usual and we were richly rewarded for that decision. This very beautiful/romantic/small/boutique hotel with exceptional service, beautiful rooms and a very good breakfast is now among our favorites! We enjoyed breakfast on the hotel's top floor with in the background the Agua vulcano overlooking Antigua, what a view! We would definitely choose this hotel again!
We had a wonderful stay at Posada Del Angel. We booked two rooms for the five of us and they very kindly added another bed in one of them. The rooms were huge and beautifully decorated. In addition, they offered a small lap pool, a shared breakfast and dining room, and a rooftop deck. It felt more like a luxurious home than a hotel. The staff were very kind and helpful. You are only a few blocks away from the centre of the action - the main square with a lot of restaurants and bars.
What I loved about Posada del Angel Hotel Antigua
- Posada del Angel integrates Antigua's Maya and Spanish heritages. It is in an old colonial building and fits in my opinion pretty well to Antigua.
- The breakfast on the rooftop terrace with view on the volcano is the perfect start in a new day.
-The pool area is during night time nicely illuminated and the entrance area lighted with candles.
-The whole team is very friendly and helpful and makes you feel like in paradise. They know a lot about Antigua and are happy to give tips on what to do. If there is something they don't know, they will do research for you.
We arrived at Posada Del Angel after dark, tired after a long day of travel and this hotel was a magical candle lit oasis. Beautiful yet cozy: the December air was cool in both the evening and the morning but the wood burning fireplaces in the breakfast room, the tiny jewel of a lobby and the guest rooms kept us toasty. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the location could not be better. One of the most unique and memorable hotel stays I have ever had.
Myself and my husband started our honeymoon with a stay at this beautiful hotel they could not be more helpful.
Breakfast on the terrace, fire lit in the bedroom we loved our stay here and recommend it 100%
