The new chef at this hotel made our stay a culinary delight!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet, culinary delight
Cons: weak wi-fi reception
The hotel is beautiful! With a cozy and friendly feel. The architecture is beautiful as is the decor. Service was great, except for 2 missed wake up calls. But the General Manager and staff are working very hard to make this hotel absolutely perfect. Gracious, attentive and friendly staff is a big plus! They have a new chef, her name is Chi Chi, and she takes the time to welcome each diner to the restaurant. There she explains her creations of the day. Which are always varied and most importantly creative! Chi Chi, incorporates local flavors in the most delicious ways possible. It was a true treat to not only stay in a beautiful setting, but to experience local cuisine. Overall, my family and I would never stay anywhere else in Antigua. Five star all the way!!

Excellent Intimate Hotel

My husband and I stayed at El Convento over 4th of July weekend. It is a small, romantic boutique hotel located near Las Campuchinas ruins and is very centrally located. We began our stay in the room Las Rosas, but you could hear quite a bit of noise in that room since it is by the entrace of the hotel, so we switched to Los Caballeros suite, which was magnificent and spacious. In both rooms, we had our own private patio with a fountain, and Los Caballeros even has its own private jacuzzi. The decor of the hotel is perfect--classy and charming, and the owner thought of everything. Even the bathrooms have a built-in stereo system. The staff was beyond helpful and responsive, and the grounds were impeccable. I would also recommend the hotel restaurant, which is delicious and is a great value for the price, by U.S. standards. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

nice hotel

The elConvento is a wonderfull botique hotel. The hotel has a rustic theme with a garden and small salon. The junior suites have small patios, with all the conveniences. The staff is very attentive. Speaking Spanish is a nice touch as only the front desk and a very few staff speak English. The hotel is convenient to the entire city and its attractions. The only thing I would remind you to bring is your Payment receipt as in our case when we were presented with the entire bill after paying on online travel website. I always carry the paid receipt with me and so should you. The Antiqua area is senic and wonderfull, my wife cried upon learning we had to go home.
