Palacio Doña Leonor Review

The one-time palace of Leonor de Alvarado de Cueva, the daughter of Spanish conquistador Pedro de Alvarado, today serves as a lovely hotel and gives Casa Santo Domingo a run for its money in Antigua's top-notch sweepstakes. Just half a block off the Parque Central, it's the most centrally located hotel in the city. The large, flat-screen televisions in each room are a nice touch—one almost never seen in Guatemala—but look a bit out of place among the colonial elegance of canopied beds, period art, fireplaces, stone-tile floors, and garden. Descending the beautiful grand staircase will make you look just as grand as we assume Doña Leonor did.

    Palacio Doña Leonor Review

    We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights in Palacio Dona Leonor a few weeks ago. It is an old palace which has been meticulously renovated to its former beauty. Take a look at the photos, they are very impressive http://www.palaciodeleonor.com As someome who lived in Spain for 5 years, I felt transported back to la Madre Patria. We were 7 friends travelling together and had 4 rooms here. Each one was unique and gorgeous in its own way. I just can't say enough about the decor; Spanish Colonial Antigua has surely been re-created here. I had the chance to speak to the owner a bit and she is the one who decorated the place. As others have mentioned, the service is outstanding. Everyone is so friendly, professional and helpful. The location couldn't be better; only 1/2 block from the main square. We understand they are opening a restaurant soon so we hope to be back to enjoy this new addition.

    Palacio Doña Leonor Review

    On a business trip I've stayed at the Palace Hotel Dona Leonor. I really liked the decoration of the hotel, very classic, with lots of history of the conquest of Guatemala. Great food, service, location, ambient, garden.
