This hotel was formerly a 10 room hotel by the name of "Hotel Museo Uxlabil". We acquired the property in Sept 2009 and remodeled all of those hotel rooms & also remodeled the adjacent property behind that were small apartments. This created a total of 22 spacious rooms, three large gardens, a rooftop terrace and many sitting areas in the spacious hotel corridors. We have a short video presentation of our beautiful hotel.
Since our Hotel is a historical property, you will find many one of a kind antiques in the hotel rooms and our spacious corridors. From the time you enter the hotel we are here to serve you. Our bilingual staff will answer any questions you have about our hotel, sites to see in Antigua Guatemala, or to help you with any other travel arrangements. We offer a fully prepared breakfast for any guest at the additional rate of $6 per person. Please inform the hotel reception girls the day before when you would like breakfast and for how many people.
In our hotel you will find three beautiful gardens filled with flowers and trees. There are many quiet sitting areas in the hotel gardens and in the spacious corridors. In many places in the hotel you could be sitting on an antique bench or staring at a 200 year old painting amazed at the detail. All of our hotel gardens have working fountains. It is relaxing simply to listen to the water trickling or to see the humming birds zooming around. In this atmosphere you could forget that you were here to explore the city of Antigua Guatemala. Please come to experience it for yourself.

You are in a house that has so much history inside it. Its style is colonial but it was built at different times in Guatemala's history as an independent republic. Many of the pieces you will find inside the hotel rooms come from the 18th and 19th century. Such as a very large bed that was hand carved for King Mosquitia of Nicaragua, one of the original chandeliers of the Cathedral of Antigua and a bed that was once in a house of "Hermano Pedro". In this house five generations of the Pellecer family have lived. They were emigrating between Guatemala and Nicaragua so you will see characteristics and artifacts from both countries.
This house is located in an area in which the Spanish inquisition operated after the conquest. Some construction workers said that if you built something during this time it was not unusual to find human remains and other evidence of darker times.
Within a few blocks of the hotel you find important institutions: The Jesuitism convent (now managed as an artistic and convention center by the Spanish cooperation), the Cathedral, the Central Park with its unique fountain, Iglesia de la Merced, Capuchinas convent, El Palacio de los Capitanes, The Ayuntamiento and many restaurants and shops. Four blocks to the west is the craft market and bus terminal. Six blocks to the south east is a recommended church to visit: Iglesia de San Francisco, where you will see many faith testimonies to Hermano Pedro. This is a city to be walked. In this way you will discover the hidden treasures of our beautiful city of Antigua Guatemala.
Inside the hotel you will see one of a kind antiques of great value. In one room is the larger than king size bed that was made for the King of Mosquitia in Nicaragua. It was originally made in Jamaica and then transported to Central America. In another room you will see a bed owned by Doña Elvira, previously a governor. Hermano Pedro also slept in this bed. In another room there is a marvelous chandelier that once hung in Antigua's Cathedral. In the corridors you will see paintings by Toribio Jerez from 1850. In addition, you will see many pieces in the house that came from France to Granada, Nicaragua and finally to this house.
Another detail present in some hotel rooms is the casullas from 19 century. Even if things are partially destroyed, it is possible to appreciate its artistic achievement dedicated to catholic movements. As soon as you enter you will see a drawing resembling the method of working during old times. In this house a jewelry factory operated two centuries ago. In the hotel corridors and inside some hotel rooms you will see tables, desks, drawers, chairs, from the 19th and 20th centuries used to display their jewelry. Every piece is original and unique.
More recently in this house operated the first radio station outside of Guatemala City, Radio Colonial. In 1945, in this house was founded the political party that brought into power Juan José Arevalo, probably one of the best presidents this country has had.
Still more recently, in August 2006, many scenes of the film Looking for Palladin, were filmed in this hotel. A film in which famous actors participated: Ben Gazara, Thalia Share, Angelica Aragon, Pedro Armendariz Jr. David Rostow and many others. So, we do not exaggerate when we say, it is a movie hotel.
