Overview

Where Mayan and Spanish influences meet in colonial Antigua with volcano views

The Lowdown

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.

Charming Oasis Inn

My family and I traveled to Antigua to spend Semana Santa, after an enjoyable day, we enjoyed every minute we could at the pool with a glass of red wine, the terrance views of the volcanos in the morning for breakfast was a real treat and in the evenings the cool weather was simply a wonderful retreat to reflect and appreciate life. The staff is gold, hospitable and attentive.

Hidden Oasis

Posada del Angel is an absolute gem.
Behind the unassuming front door is a lovely boutique hotel.
Our room was beautifully appointed with local handwoven textiles and also had a Spanish influence. The bed was very comfortable with amazing quality linen. The shower provided continuous hot water.
The lounge area was incredibly comfortable and overlooked the beautiful swimming pool.
Breakfast is served at a lovely dining room, I can recommend the omelette, the French toast, or the fried eggs.
The staff were always available to get us a refreshing cold lemonade or coffee.
Service was outstanding, efficient and friendly.
The upstairs terrace provides a great view of the volcano.
Staying here is more like being in a beautiful family home rather than a hotel, an absolute delight in Antigua.

Great hotel in a nice location

A hidden gem in Antigua. Behind what looks like a garage door, we found a beautiful, authentic colonial style hotel. A (small) swimming pool and a terrace above the rooms with spectacular views make the picture complete. The hotel does not have a restaurant but it is within a 5 minute walk from the central square where lots of excellent places to eat can be found. For breakfast, try the huevos rancheros.
