Welcome to Palacio de Doña Leonor
Step beyond the magnificent oak doors of Hotel Palacio de Doña Leonor and find yourself immersed in the romance and legends of 16th century Antigua Guatemala.
A meticulously restored mansion that once served as the residence of the daughter of Spanish conqueror Don Pedro de Alvarado, this gem of a boutique hotel is an oasis of charm, elegance and intimacy in the heart of the city’s cultural centre. Amidst splendid décor and historic detailing, stone fireplaces and a beautifully cultivated central garden and fountain, guests are filled with a deep sense of enchantment.
The thirteen sumptuous accommodations at Hotel Palacio de Doña Leonor feature private balconies or terraces with city or garden views. Each room and suite, named to honour key figures in the conquest of Guatemala, has a story to tell. From the colonial furnishings to the antique chandeliers and hand-painted ceilings, every detail has been carefully chosen to celebrate the essence of noble life in Antigua as it was five centuries ago.
There are innumerable experiences to be enjoyed throughout the hotel. Savour contemporary cuisine at the cosy Palacio Restaurant. Relax over cocktails and dessert in the Tea Room or enjoy live music by moonlight in the colonial garden courtyard. Stroll a half-block and explore Antigua’s vibrant sights, sounds and architecture, including The Cathedral, The Palace of the Captain’s General, The Main Plaza and the Palacio itself.
At Hotel Palacio de Doña Leonor, the past is prelude to a truly exceptional travel experience.
