About Casa Rustica
A great place to stay in the colonial city of Antigua Guatemala
Hotel Casa Rustica was established in 2006 as a budget hotel or hostel with many options, all of them to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. To make it even better, we remodeled the hotel in April 2009 and again in March 2011. Ideally located just one block west of the central plaza or about a one minute walk. This allows you to be close to the most important sites in town with a short and safe walk back home every night. Everything you need is close by, from restaurants to shopping to museums to historical sites.
Hotel Casa Rustica offers a quaint Cafe along with a Travel Agency, Internet Cafe and Typical Shop. Our hotel has 14 beautiful and private rooms all with cable TV. 9 rooms with private baths inside the room and 5 rooms with common bathrooms just outside the room. Of the 5 rooms with common bath there are 3 bathrooms to service these rooms. So no waiting for the bathroom.
We also offer a large room for up to 6 friends or family members with a private bath and cable TV. Most rooms have very nice and spacious hand carved wood closets with lockable draws for your valuables. A few others have beautifully hand carved armours. All rooms have hand carved desk, night stands and hand forged iron lamps. Each room is nicely decorated with typical Guatemala textiles, pictures and bright colors.
In Hotel Casa Rustica we offer 26 separate hotel beds with a total capacity of 40 people. If your group is even larger, between all our Antigua hotels, we have over 150 rooms and can accommodate up to 500 people. Even if your group is split between a few of our hotels, you would never be more than a 3 minute walk from the rest of your group, since our hotels are very close to each other and very centrally located to the central park of Antigua.
