El Convento Boutique Hotel
Just across the street from the ruins of the Capuchinas Convent, abandoned after an earthquake in 1773, is the El Convento Boutique Hotel. Located in a traditional colonial-style building, the hotel has 26 comfortable rooms, a swimming pool and an authentic Guatemalan restaurant. The ambiance is warm and welcoming, and you’re within easy reach of many of Antigua’s most famous landmarks, including the San Jose cathedral and the Santa Catalina Arch. The restaurant, Elù Restaurant and Lounge, serves fresh Guatemalan cuisine with a contemporary twist. Dine under grand vaulted ceilings in the historic dining room or al fresco on the terrace, where you can admire volcanic vistas as you eat.
