Stayed here for 2 nights in a double room. It’s awesome! One of the best hotels in Antigua. The room is small, but most are in Guatemala. We had everything we needed and a la carte breakfast that was included was yum. Great location. You...More
San Rafael is conveniently located a block south of the arch and a few blocks north of the main plaza. The rooms are arranged around courtyards with landscaping and water fixtures. Candles at night. It feels like a Zorro movie set. The staff were friendly...More
Boutique property, lovely interior -- art, fountains, tall tuscan-looking trees, lovely decor inside the room down to every last finish -- and attentive courteous staff. Comfortable and modern, but ancient, traditional touches in the artwork (Spanish colonial portraits), Persian carpets, fireplaces, Moroccan tile and light...More
Months prior to visiting Guatemala, I researched different hotels in the areas that we would be going to. San Rafael Hotel was our #1 choice and we are so happy that we chose it. There were other good hotels in Antigua but, one of the...More
The character of the hotel is really beautiful and well done. Relatively small hotel. Staff is really friendly and speak english. We had a very large room and very good beds. Be aware that the hotel has no restaurant, but given the large amount of...More
The San Rafael, which opens following a three-year restoration, incorporates the remains of an early structure significantly altered in the nineteenth century. The recent restoration preserves the form of …Morea grand, traditional colonial home with its brick, stone and stucco construction; two courtyards; antique tile roofs; and three water features (including a dramatic wall fountain). Besides the furnished patio where one can enjoy a leisurely breakfast while gazing over the garden, guests will appreciate the elegant and lofty sitting and dining room, the perfect space in which to sip a glass of wine, sit before a roaring fire, or catch up on emails and correspondence. Entering through the gates of the San Rafael, visitors enjoy a sweeping view of the first courtyard with its two fountains and richly varied plantings: Italian cypresses, ficus trees, and the colorful blossoms of native plants. The hotel office and reception are conveniently located off the entry vestibule, where newly arriving guests will be greeted with a welcome beverage, and hotel residents may seek advice on touring the city, securing reservations at Antigua's finest restaurants, or making arrangements for a private excursion. Breakfast is a special occasion here, guests enjoying it while seated around the courtyard or in the dining room. For those fond of coffee or tea upon awakening, and before sitting down to breakfast, complimentary self-serve beverages are available in the courtyard each morning. The breakfast menu includes traditional offerings as well as a rotating array of special dishes. Breakfast is served between the hours of 7:00am and 10:30am weekdays, 11:00am weekends. Less

Good morning dcracken7
I hope you are well.
In response to your question, the hotel doesn´t have mini fridge in the rooms, but if you need to use one, the one in our kitchen is available.
