Awesome Place & Great Customer Service

Reviewed 29 december, 2021

Absolutely beautiful courtyard & immaculately decorated rooms. Only about a block from Santa Catalina Arch. I had several requests, including a COVID test at the hotel the day before our travel back to the US. The staff responded promptly to my every request. Delicious breakfasts. I DEFINITELY recommend San Rafael, will stay there again upon my return without question. One small thing. Wi-fi is a bit spotty.

Very comfortable hotel

Reviewed 8 december, 2021

Extremely expensive compared to other hotels in Antigua (although I think you can probably pay much less than we did if you check around the different websites) That said we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The hotel has NO amenities such as a swimming pool or restaurant or a bar. The breakfast is included and you have a menu with a number of tasty alternatives and is served to you on your private little table for 2 outside your room in the beautiful open courtyard. The king size bed we had was extremely comfortable and the WiFi is the best I’ve found in Guatemala. The rain shower is perfect in the bathroom with plenty of hot water. There are only 7 guest rooms all on the ground floor and believe me, you won’t hear any noise from other guests.

This was our first time and in Guatemala San Rafael was the first place we came to. We really enjoyed our stay here and was great way to start our trip. All the positive things you read about this hotel are true which is why we picked it. It’s really pretty, everyone is really nice and the location is excellent. Every morning we ate breakfast on the patio which is a must especially the typical Guatemalan breakfast Pros: -the hotel’s location is centrally located in the middle of everything. You can easily walk to all the attractions, restaurants and shops (not that Antigua is a big place anyway) and is less than a block from the arch -the hotel is really pretty. The courtyard is serene and beautiful and the room we stayed in (#4) was large and comfortable. The large sitting area was used by us a lot and the high ceilings make the room feel even bigger. Large shower and a lot of space to put your toiletries in the bathroom -everyone here is very friendly and we always felt welcomed. Everyone says hello and has a smile on their face which is always something we appreciate Cons: -nothing really major but the room didn’t have much of airflow even with the windows open. There’s a tiny fan but doesn’t do much so at night it was a little hot even though it was cool outside I hunky recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay a great one

Gorgeous Hotel Interior with a Perfect Location!

I am glad that we could stay in the luxurious San Rafael Hotel for our midweek getaway trip to Antigua, Guatemala. We stayed in the San Rafael Hotel last week for 3 nights. I am recalling the luxurious courtyard, and I am still immersed with emotion daydreaming in the afterglow of our trip. The guest rooms were very beautiful and gorgeous. My room (#3), the Candelaria, was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The staff were very helpful, friendly, and courteous. The owners were inviting and friendly. We had an opportunity to see the owners' glamorous residence and their spectacular 360° rooftop terrace view; it was like an architectural masterpiece. I saw the landmark of the Santa Catalina Arch just right there from the owners' magnificent terrace, and also the peaks of both Fuego and Agua volcanoes. The hotel is centered in an unbeatable tourist location. I highly recommend to all art loving tourists to be a guest at this gorgeous architectural accented San Rafael Hotel in Antigua, Guatemala.
