we stayed 3 nights at Las Faroles as part of a Bird watching trip through Guatemala . The Hotel is wonderful - rooms, especially on the top floor, are great, with beautiful views of Volcan de Aqua on a clear day, and a garden area filled with gorgeous plantings and plenty of birds. The hotel supplies water in the rooms and filtered water in the lobby and restaurant area to fill water bottles for the day. The rooms were spacious and nicely appointed... with really fast internet, allowing us to catch up on things. A nice stay - and only about 5 minute walk to the central plaza.

Room Tip: get a room on the balcony,... the views are wonderful

We spent two nights at the Hotel Las Farolas and found it to be quite lovely.
The staff were by far the friendliest, most welcoming, and most helpful out of the four different hotels we stayed at in different parts of Guatemala.
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The grounds had lush landscaping, and the property was very private. Having the guard stationed at the front door was comforting, although we never felt unsafe in Antigua.
We only ate breakfast here, but it was good.
Our only complaint was the lack of air conditioning. We kept the windows open in the evening to cool down our rooms, but then bugs started coming in. Also, my kids were disappointed by the lack of a pool.

Room Tip: I would request a higher floor for better views.

The room was clean, but the best part was the balcony that looked out over a garden area and the outdoor eating. Lots of lovely flowers and a great restaurant (I had breakfast and lunch there). Also, nice views of the volcano from the balcony.

Room Tip: Stayed on top floor (great views). Not sure about laundry, but knew some folks who found an inexpensive laundry just a block away.

This is a quaint little hotel that you may just pass by. It’s front entrance is guarded and at first we thought it was just a hotel. Behind every door in Antigua is something beautiful and this did not disappoint. We ate a delicious dinner of Mayan lasagna and Pepian a popular Guatemalan fish. With this we had the delicious bread that we could smell baking. After dinner we took a stroll in the lush gardens. We brought a friend back for breakfast and we all enjoyed it and they had free refills on coffee.

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights and truly loved our vacation. The front desk was helpful and accommodating. The restaurant was delicious. We had breakfast there each morning and there was a delightful, delicious variety in choices.

The rooms are quite comfortable and housekeeping was attentive.

We spent a couple of mornings reading on the bench in the garden, It was a very relaxing hotel.

The last morning, we were waiting for our pre-arranged car to pick us up. That company (Gray Line Guatemala) forgot to pick us up. The front desk called. Discovered our dilemma and then secured alternate transportation for us (and it took calling 3 different places). The front desk also arranged with Gray Line to pay the driver who did pick us up. This is an example of the extra miles that the the hotel staff offered their guests.

I would stay here again!

Room Tip: The first floor offers easy access to the gardens
