As stated above, our hotel has 3 friendly & lovely dogs. Most hotel guest, maybe 99%, love the hotel dogs and they usually play with them and many guest give them treats. Many of our hotel guest that miss their dogs always say, that playing with Lucky, Laverne and Shirley makes their hotel stay even better. However, if you do not like dogs, maybe you would feel more comfortable at one of our other hotel properties that are all listed below and on the this web sites side bar "Antigua Hotel Solutions" and the other individual hotel names. The hotel dogs are all rescue dogs from the street. They were rescued at a very young age and have grown up in the hotel. So, they are very good with the hotel guest and are very gentle. They are great with kids and you never have to worry about them being aggressive. So, if you are traveling with kids, this should be an additional reason for you to stay at Hotel Casa Rustica. Our dogs make good distractions for your kids to play with for a while to take their mind off and your mind off the challenges of extended travel with young children. Last but not least, you do not have to worry about cleanliness. Our hotel dogs get a bath, nails trimmed, teeth brushed, ears cleaned, etc. every 2 months from a professional groomer that comes to the hotel.
In addition, Hotel Casa Rustica has 3 large terraces with spectacular views of our colonial city of Antigua Guatemala. Our 3rd level terrace has 360° views all around Antigua. Great for pictures. From this hotel terrace you have unobstructed views of all Antigua Guatemala: Volcán de Agua , Fuego Volcano, Alotenango Volcano, Cathedral of Antigua , La Merced Church , the Cross of Antigua, many Colonial Antigua Ruins and all the beautiful surrounding mountains. All of this plus a very friendly and helpful staff. Our hotel is in a very tranquil place in the middle of beautiful Antigua Guatemala. Due to being in the city center, it can be a little louder on the weekend nights, but is more quiet during the week.

Their convent, where the hotel is today, began being built in 1613 and was completed in 1647. This is one thing that makes this hotel different, and not many other hotels in the world are like this.
