While the rooms here aren't unbelievable they are among the best in San Ignacio. The real charm of Martha's is the incredibly helpful staff. They are readily available to help you do anything from book a tour to figure out and help you confirm an accommodation in another city. Highly recommended

I was feeling apprehensive when I discovered they could only offer us a room at the inn as the guesthouse was busy, but i was stupid to worry. We were given a lovely studio apartment with its own little kitchen including fridge and microwave as well as a very nice bathroom. The bed was big and comfortable and we could... More

San Ignacio is a small town without many attractions inside the town. It's also not very beautiful or attractive. The town is in a good location for the attractions around it. We stayed at martha's for 4 nights. It is well located in the middle of San Ignacio, close to a few bars and restaurants, the bus stop and the... More

I had the strangest experiences ever couple of weeks ago. I was in San Ignacio working ( I have a tour-operator in Guatemala) and I had my clients staying at Mountain Pine Ridge. And one night I went for dinner at the Martha's guest house. It was good food actually. But since I was there I decided to check out... More

We stayed at Martha's Guesthouse from Feb 23-26th, 2015. I recommend the best way to make a reservation is by phone, so as to have immediate confirmation & assurance of a room. We enjoyed Martha's as it was very clean, with the charm of an older home. (Minor repairs needed, but none that reduced the quality of our stay.)The cost... More

We booked this hotel as a walk-in and management accommodated us very quickly. The rooms are cute and cosy and the bed is comfortable. The only draw back is the street noise at night and early morning. They are located in downtown San Ignacio so it`s expected. Just bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. We enjoyed a... More

Don't look any further. We were lucky to walk in and get this room. 3rd night wasn't available so we had to change hotel. Get a reservation. Martha & John are very friendly and helpful. Staff is great. Laundry around side of hotel very efficient. Great ambience. Stairs are steep like all Central America. Fresh sheets, nice thick & heavy... More

We stayed one night at Martha's Guesthouse and loved the Spanish décor and extraordinarily comfortable beds with crisp white sheets and Guatemalan bedspreads. The place is charming. We did not use our small balcony as there seemed to be smells from a nearby restaurant, but frankly it didn't matter as we were happy to spend our time exploring San Ignacio.... More

Stayed in the top floor suite. Probably the nicest hotel room we have stayed in. Great views and huge deck to relax on. The top floor is probably quieter than the lower floors. San Ignacio downtown is not the place to stay for peace and quiet- it is a bustling border town with lots of vehicular traffic, music etc. Good... More
