The chances are good that you’ll visit Antigua at some point during your trip to Guatemala. It’s fairly close to Guatemala City (and its international airport) and is one of the most charming cities in the country. Travelers will enjoy strolling its quaint streets and popping into historical buildings and churches. There are several museums worth visiting and a number of good shops and restaurants to try out.
Hotel Los Pasos is set in an old colonial house with wide corridors and sunny gardens. The hotel is a short walk from the Plaza de Armas—this location provides convenient access to attractions while still being in a quiet area.
Like other buildings in Antigua, Hotel Los Pasos extends around a central courtyard. This is a lovely, open space that provides guests with a nice place to sit outdoors and relax. There are also covered benches beneath open-air hallways, and a pleasant rooftop terrace with good views of the surrounding area. This terrace is definitely a highlight of the hotel.
The hotel’s 20 rooms are beautiful. They are tastefully decorated in a traditional Antiguan style and have vaulted wooden ceilings, tile floors, and soft lighting. Every room has a private hot-water bathroom, minibar, and safe deposit box. Wireless Internet allows you to stay in touch with loved ones back home, while a plasma cable TV lets you stay on top of news, sports, and other current events.
The hotel’s restaurant, Entre Campanas, serves world-class cuisine in a pleasant setting. The dining room is sometimes lit with candles, providing a warm ambiance to dinner. You can also eat in the courtyard or on the terrace. The menu offers a wide selection of international fusion dishes and incorporates a variety of local ingredients. These delicious dishes can be paired with a good glass of wine or an international beer. Room service is also available.
