A bit of a walk to the center of townPosted Nov 30, 2012 on Hotels.com
The tour group we were with stayed at this hotel in Antigua on the last night of the tour. We planned to extend our stay in that city after the rest of the group left so we had booked 2 extra nights at this hotel thru Hotels.com. We thought it just be easier staying there than moving to a different hotel closer to the center of town. The buildings and grounds of the Villa Colonial are very pretty, however the rooms need updating. The tub in the bathroom (Room 73) had a lot of rust spots. Everything worked, but the room just seemed outdated and a bit tired. No free bottles of water in the room. The hot water was turned off when we tried to take a bath but the reception desk did send someone promptly and the fix was just flipping a circuit breaker down a set of stairs. Free WiFi was available in the lobby and there was cable TV in the room. Our room was on the second floor and had a large porch extending across several rooms. Our room had 2 standard size beds.The main disadvantage of staying there was the distance from the central plaza and almost no shops or restaurants within several blocks. We ate one breakfast with the group in the restaurant and had dinner at the hotel one night. Service was excellent and the food tasty if a bit pricier than many in town restaurants. It is an easy walk into town, just realize that this hotel is not centrally located should you decide to stay there. We had been to Antigua 5 years before and stayed at a posada 2 blocks from the Plaza.
