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
If you could imagine building a beautiful home with a full staff in Antigua, you've have Posada Del Angel. Small, beautifully furnished and staffed hotel just off the main plaza. Attention to details, candles, flowers, and music. We stayed in the Clinton suite, and almost didnt want to get out of bed.
This was our first visit to Guatemala and we weren’t sure what to expect - this hotel exceeded anything we could’ve expected and completely delighted us! Anibal was very genuinely welcoming as we arrived after having travelled for around 21 hours and showed us to our lovely room. The room was great with plenty of space and a very comfortable bed, along with a strikingly impressive bathroom. All amenities were provided and the room was nicely quiet and dark. Breakfast the next morning was very good with the best coffee we’ve tasted. All of the staff were very friendly and welcoming and seemed to enjoy hosting guests. We were sorry to move on after 2 nights and would definitely liked to have stayed longer. I thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Antigua and would love to return someday soon.
This place could not be more charming! The architecture and ambiance are next to none and the service there is spectacular (Gracias, Simon!). There are only 7 rooms and we rarely ever heard or saw any of the other guests, which is nice when you’re a couple who needs time away. The view from the terrace is the best in the city and candlelit walkways, surrounded everywhere by fresh flowers, were my two favorite parts. I highly recommend this place and we will definitely be back!
It is even hard to describe how beautiful this property is. Attention to detail is amazing. Every single piece of furniture or art is picked with care. Common areas are really pretty and it took us 40 minutes just to leave the property since we were looking at every detail. Rooftop terrace is very romantic and has great views to the city and volcano. Staff is very attentive. Just an extraordinary place.
We just spent 4 nights here and really enjoyed it. Early April 2018.
The staff were all lovely and friendly and went out of their way to help us.
It was more like staying at a lovely 7room BnB rather than a hotel.
They organised a private guide -Manuel for us to do a day trip out of Antigua to Lake Atitlan and the markets and he was fabulous.
Breakfast each morning till 10am was great. The fruit being the best I ever remember eating! The breakfast room is delightful and we loved the music they played each morning.
There is no restaurant here ( apart from breakfast service) but there are a couple of very good restuarants within a short walk including the one at the hotel next door.
The property is beautiful and had the authentic feel about it that we wanted to experience in Antigua. Somewhat Intrepid rustic meets warm simplistic luxury.
The king bed room we had was very comfortable, and the linens very nice.
On the negative side. The bathroom was small, and the shower was cold everyday. Something they should address.
There is no air conditioning in the rooms, the fan provided was useful, but I would not want to stay at the hottest times of year because of that.
Location is a little further out of the main part of town and restaurants and bar areas than we would have liked and if I was a single woman I wouldn't walk there alone at night.
In spite of this, we would absolutely recommend this great property and its fabulous staff to anyone visiting Antigua. It was a lovely base for 4 days.
