El Convento Boutique Hotel
- A luxe contemporary, colonial hotel in the heart of Antigua
Located in the city of Antigua, on a cobblestone street across from the romantic ruins of an 18th-century convent, El Convento is a contemporary boutique hotel with a tasteful colonial feel.
It sits just blocks from the city’s central plaza (a great starting point for walking tours of Antigua) and offers 25 individually decorated suites with large, plush king-sized beds. Stone, cedar, and brick architecture combines with eclectic antiques and a muted colour palette to create a peaceful environment that's perfect for relaxing or settling in with a good book. Some rooms feature private terraces or gardens while others have skylights, fireplaces, spa-like bathrooms or hot tubs. The rooftop lounge has an outdoor fireplace and offers city and volcano views. The chef crafts modern dishes with a Guatemalan flair, paired with vintages from a well-stocked wine cellar.
El Convento is a favourite with couples (particularly honeymooners) and small groups looking for luxe accommodations in a central location. The hotel is just 50 minutes from Guatemala City's international airport.
