One of La Antigua Guatemala’s most enchanting hotels has been family owned and operated for generations. Consisting of three lovingly restored colonial residences — one of which, the three-hundred-year-old “Casa de Los Leones”, is a national historic monument — the hotel perfectly captures the essence of old-world Antigua. All rooms are uniquely decorated with original artwork, hand-painted ceilings, fireplaces and furniture hand-carved by local artisans. The hotel’s romantic restaurant features enticing Guatemalan cuisine, along with live Marimba music daily and Baile de los Moros folk dancing EVERY NIGH AT 8 P.M.
La Posada de Don Rodrigo was the recipient of TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice award in the “Top Hotels” category in 2014.
