Hotel Sor Juana, Antigua

Set in Antigua’s historic centre, the quaint Hotel Sor Juana is a fitting base for exploring the colourful colonial architecture and fascinating ruins of this UNESCO-listed city.

This charming hotel was once part of a 17th century convent, the former home of Juana de Maldonado y Paz who has been described as one of the greatest poets of the colonial era. With its carved wooden headboards, exposed stone walls and rafters, Hotel Sor Juana feels very much in touch with times past. With a prime location in Antigua’s historic heart, guests enjoy easy access to the city’s landmark attractions as well as dining and shopping hotspots. 

Accommodating just a handful of guests in five beautifully appointed rooms, Hotel Sor Juana ensures a high level of service. Each is comfortably furnished with ensuite facilities and locally made artisanal toiletries, while the best suites add fireplaces. The property also boasts beautiful gardens where meals are served, as well as a terrace where you can admire sensational views of the volcanoes that surround Antigua.
