Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Housed in a restored colonial mansion, the San Rafael Hotel is a rather luxe 7-room hotel in the heart of lovely Antigua. Grand and traditional, you can expect plenty of character; from the honey-hued décor to the dark-wood furnishings.
The charming courtyard is the perfect place to while away a sunny afternoon, offering a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the town outside. But, above all, it’s the impeccable service at San Rafael that will really make your stay memorable ‒ the staff here have that perfect mix of being friendly and attentive without ever becoming intrusive.
A delicious breakfast is served in the courtyard each morning and is included in most room rates (check detail below). There is no restaurant on site but the lovely staff are happy to make recommendations nearby ‒ there are plenty to choose from in Antigua.
The seven rooms are each individually and elegantly designed with antiques aplenty, comfortable beds and generous bathrooms with rainfall showers. Most rooms also boast a stone fireplace ‒ a real treat if you happen to be visiting during the cooler, winter months.
Located in Antigua, Guatemala, about 10-minutes' walk from the main square, you're well placed to explore here and the staff are more than happy to assist you with organising local tours and activities.
