Perfectly quiet

A nice hotel in a small village. Very quiet, very cozy, very clean. The rooms are comfortable. Doña Verónica and Don Alfonso are always approachable and very helpful. You have to like the secluded location.

Perfect relaxing stay

Nice rooms in a lovely family house. The 3 rooms have a direct access to a large balcony on which you can relax and enjoy a great view on the 3 volcanoes (you can see the Fuego lava explosions during the night). Beautiful and colorful garden. Lovely and friendly owners (Veronica speak French very well!) with cute dogs. Very nice breakfast included. It’s located in a cute and quiet village on the heights of Antigua. From Casa Xicaya it’s a 15-min walk to very nice restaurants (Cerro San Cristobal and Antigua Mágica). 100% recommended !!
