Dido was great and super-cool, the hosts made me feel super welcome and I enjoyed my conversations with them. Absolutely a very clean, quiet, private room with very comfy bed and nice private bathroom. Cool colonial house with a lot of interesting furniture, and the typical open courtyard interior. Great place for a quiet, laid-back atmosphere slightly set-back from the hustle of the city. I like the southern Primera / Segunda Avenida bars and vibe, and Dido's place is a very quick walk (~5 minutes) to those places, and also convenient walk to anywhere else in Antigua.
Dido was quick to respond and answer all our inquiries. She kindly arranged for transportation for us, and not just upon arrival to her home - we called upon her a second time and even though our destination was not her home, she still did us a huge, very kind favor.
The house is amazing: clean, thoughtfully decorated, with a pretty, quiet, inner court and a view of a volcano. It's a true haven from the sun, heat and bustling streets of Antigua.
The room was simple, but clean and comfy (the bathroom was cool!), and there were freshly cut flowers that infused the room with a sweet fragrance.
We met Dido only briefly, but she was friendly and kind.
I would definitely stay there again!
What a lovely place! So relaxed, clean and quiet. Bathroom can be a little small for some people, but it didnt bother us. Bed is also so comfy! We really had a nice time at Dido's place, thanks :).
Carolina was an extremely helpful and sweet host! Every time we needed anything she came to the house within a short time or arranged the maid to help us. The house has the most wonderful little garden, a perfect place to relax and have a break after the days experiences. The house has a small, outside kitchen where we were able to enjoy or breakfast and make tea and coffee. The room is spacious, very cosy and with comfortable beds. I cannot recommend Carolina / Dido's place enough! This is the perfect place to stay during your days in Antigua! Thank you Carolina
A lovely place to stay in Antigua. I liked not being right in the centre ( it's only six blocks!). Good local bars to hang out in close by.
La habitación está muy linda. Tiene todo lo necesario. Dido fue muy amable, incluso nos prestó una plancha para ropa que necesitábamos. La ubicación es genial, a escasas cuadras del centro de Antigua. ¡Muy recomendable!
This was my second time staying at Dido's lovely home and all I can say is that it was a great experience because it exemplifies old Guatemalan elegance. It's a safe and comfortable environment and neighborhood. Yes, it's a bit of a walk to the center of town but every street offers something new and different to see and it's a great way to explore the city. I especially liked having the small outdoor kitchen to fix breakfast or a simple dinner on the days I didn't want to eat out. I will be returning to Antigua in November and this is the only place I am interested in staying. It really suits my mode of travel. The rooms are spacious and well appointed-- as nice as any hotel I've stayed in.
