In its earliest days, Casa Santo Domingo was the bastion of one of the grandest convents of America: a sanctuary that sheltered the followers of the order of Santo Domingo de Guzmán. Today, the hotel stands as an important monument, housing and preserving the treasures from the baroque era of ancestral America. Each corner of this house, each stone, each image and each piece that composes this hotel museum is a chapter in the story of our beautiful hotel.
This innovative hotel museum offers 130 rooms, each with its own unique and special characteristics. The décor includes works of art from renowned Guatemalan artists and handmade textiles featuring traditional-contemporary designs. Updated with the finest amenities, our accommodation features LCD televisions with cable, telephones with voicemail, minibars, safety deposit boxes, irons and ironing boards, hair dryers, magnification lighted vanity mirrors, hypo-allergenic pillows (on request), bathrobes, twice-daily housekeeping service, fireplaces, high-speed Internet, terrace, balcony, tub, and Jacuzzi or sauna (in select rooms).
Our dining choices offer something for every taste. In our main restaurant, Refectorio del Priorm, we serve splendid fusion cuisine from around the globe for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Tenedor del Cerro features pizzas, pastas and grilled specialties in a relaxing garden environment. At our Bar El Cabildo you will be able to enjoy your favourite drink in an elegant and comfortable setting. At Casa Santo Domingo, we excel at hosting wedding receptions, business meetings and other events. Our facilities can accommodate over 1,200 guests and are fully equipped for a wide range of events. Throughout your event, our attentive staff will be available to assist you and ensure that every detail is perfect. A profound respect for yesterday and today’s culture prevails; that is why we have undertaken the task of building and restoring a colonial monument in order to preserve and highlight the artistic manifestations that, due to their relevance, deserve to be called true works of art.
