Fodor's Review

As a tasteful combination of colonial elegance and modern comfort, Porta Hotel Antigua, part of a small Guatemalan chain, is one of the city's most popular lodgings. The sparkling pool, set amid lush gardens, is a treat after a day exploring the dusty city streets. Standard rooms have plenty of space for two, whereas one- and two-level suites can house a whole family quite comfortably. The oldest part of the hotel is a colonial-style building with a restaurant, bar, and

a beautiful sitting room. A newer annex building is connected by tunnel under the street, and, although constructed in the old colonial style, contains more modern rooms. Although this is now the city's largest lodging, nothing is overpowering about the place. Weddings are sometimes held in a sunny esplanade overlooking the ruins of Iglesia de San José.

Great Pool and Food

We stayed at the Porta Hotel Antigua from March 23-28, 2005. We were very pleased. Our room with two double beds was quite large (about 12x18 feet) with a fireplace. The pool is in the park-like courtyard. The service and food were very good. The hotel is 3 blocks south of the Plaza Mayor, so it is easy to walk around town. Unlike the reviewer from 2002, we had no problems with the water pressure (or temperature) in the shower and bathtub.

It's a beautiful hotel in a beautiful small city. Go there!
