Great old building, nicely renovated

Posted Jul 25, 2015
Pros: Location, friendly and helpful staff, large room and views.
Cons: The heating in the room was inadequate for the cold weather. Breakfast could have more variety.
Location: The nearby central plaza is always lively, as is the central market. There's good coffee and food around the plaza.
The room was a generous size with a good bed and nice furniture. TV was old, but that didn't bother me. Great views from the room and the terrace. Breakfast was basic but served in nice surroundings by friendly staff. Very good location, just a short two block walk to the central square. Overall, a very good experience.

Not quite as nice as 3 years ago

Posted Apr 25, 2015
Pros: Location & general layout of hotel
Cons: As stated above a general pick-me-up. And of course an elevator!
Location: Right across the street from the Santa Clara Convent Museum. A couple of blocks from central plaza
We were surprised upon arrival at Villa Antigua that I had mistakenly reserved a room for 1 when I knew full well that my wife would be traveling with me. Recognizing my mistake I said I would gladly pay the difference. Upon checkout I was informed that the difference would be substantially more than I had estimated or later, upon examination, more than the difference between the Expedia posted rate for a double & what I had paid. No big deal but sort of leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Otherwise we like the hotel where we have stayed before. Indeed we got the same top deck room we had stayed in some 3 years ago. The hotel still has a nice feel to it, but was a bit barn like this time as it was scarcely half full. Plus the wear & tear of 3 years are evident & I would say that the owner needs to do a thorough pick-me-up. Little things: toilet seat loose, door btwn bathroom & bedroom off center and very difficult to close, the catch devise on the shades broken so shades couldn’t be kept open, shower curtain rod not properly fixed in place, the outdoor furniture need revamping. Little things. Plus like all but the best hotels a desperate need for more electric outlets – in today’s world we all have electronic devices that need charging. In Villa Antigua’s case all that would really be needed is to replace all single outlets (they all are) with double ones. Breakfast fine albeit not particularly notable

Spacious room, close to centre of Sucre

Posted Dec 2, 2013
Pros: The location, the large room and the helpful service
Cons: Only CNN TV in English, need to get a couple more eg., BBC
Location: 2 blocks from main plaza and museums. Just enjoy the colonial architecture
As only guest of hotel for 3 nights, I received personal service. A room larger than most apartments, with a private garden balcony.

Schönes Hotel im Kolonialstil

Posted Aug 9, 2014
Mitten in der Stadt gelegen mit schönen Zimmern. Rezeptionspersonal leider unfähig Kundenwünsche zu erfüllen.
