On a first time visit to Guatemala on business I didn't know what standard to expect from the hotels there. This hotel although slightly dated was a gem. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms very spacious with all amenities you would require and food was excellent in the restaurant. The hotel caters for every type of traveller...

If you want to make an easy entry, or exit for that matter, into Guatemala, the Barcelona is your ticket. The vibe is opulence, at least for Guatemala. It is very close to the airport and they do have a free pick and drop off. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The restaurants are good but expensive. The... More

Barceló hotels have a nice lobby, but their desk clerks do not speak English, and are not receptive to their guests needs. Both in Costa Rica and in Guatemala City,I got some of the worst rooms they had , and it took many requests to change to a satisfactory one. The dinner buffet did not change very much, and the...

We spent the night before and final night of an excellent Caravan tour of Guatemala at this beautiful, old style hotel (lots of dark wood, free shoe buffers near the elevators, classic silver rotary dial phones in the lobby, etc.) a quick drive from the airport in Guatemala City. We had several good buffet meals in the large poolside restaurant... More

nice amenities, great location (safe and close to the zona viva and airport), good breakfast (if included). Only thing is that wifi is not standard included (make sure to ask if wifi is included in the price you pay for the room). This is big minus for a such a wonderful hotel; all hotels have free wifi nowadays. I therefore... More

A quiet room with super amenities! Perfect for a night near the airport! Great service and good price. I give it 5 stars. We will definitely stay here again. Check out the pool, health club, and shops.

The hotel is convenient to the airport and has a free shuttle. Just call ahead to give them your flight details and they'll meet you just outside. It is a bit dated, but is still a well appointed grand-in-its-day hotel, with lots of marble. (Like some of the big pricey chain hotels serving convention centers in Boston and DC.) I... More

Stayed here through Gate 1 Travel and was impressed on all levels. The reception staff remembered my name even after we left for a night and returned. The free breakfast was great...options for those of us on limited diets as well as every other food group known to me! Best of all, the coffee (delicious) just kept coming... The rooms... More

After traveling to Xela and the municipios of Huehuetenango, Barceló is the relaxing place to stay in Guatemala City, they are well in control with there security and they have few restaurants inside the hotel facility, KFC, Mcdonalds on the corner. I like to sleep no worry and I will stay here again. Wifi works excellent like here in USA.

I stayed for a second time last february and it was top notch. Accomodations were great and service was as well. Meals were impressive. Security is present, taxis are available. Pool is climatized. There's a supermarket close by, as well as restaurants and shopping centers less than five minutes away by car.
