I always find that I stay in two hotels at the same time. The first is the people, and the second is the building. I cannot possibly say too many nice things about the people at the Hotel Ajau, except to thank every one of them for making me feel so welcome. I want them to understand how much I... More

Just stayed here for one night after 16 hours of flight. I thought I would have a good night sleep but it is impossible in this hotel. My room opened on an interior patio. It gives you the possibility to hear anything happening in the hotel : people speaking loud at 12 PM, some guys snoring next door, or peeing... More

Nothing to complain about, excellent value for money. If you are sensitive to street noise, try and ask for a quite room. Water for free is available to refill your bottles. Security was good, there is a person at the gate 24/7.

Great budget hotel in centro area, Zona 1. I would recommend it since its convenient, close to transmetro bus and bus #83 going back to airport. We stayed there 3 nights 4 days, every morning 6-9 am had Guatemalan style breakfast (2 eggs, cheese, beans, tortillas), great value. Downside: noisy if you have a window, nobody cleans room daily...We had... More

This is an old hotel in the historic part of the city. I wouldn't recommend walking around at night, but during the day we were fine, and saw police on each block. A few blocks away there is a street that was closed to traffic with shops, a mall, and historic buildings. The hotel itself is older and rustically decorated.... More

I stayed at the hotel in December 2013 and left my camera there by mistake. I only realised this when I'd reached another country and so contacted the hotel to see if they could find it. They did and I offered to pay the postage to send it to me. Instead the hotel arranged and paid for the postage of... More

It’s a nice cozy and very family type of hotel. It is well located in the old historical part of town. The Central Food Market (Fruits, vegetables and meat) and Artisan Market are located at about 15 to 20 blocks away from the hotel; which is a walkable distance. Plus, there are main bus terminals within two or three blocks... More

We stayed here for one night and had the worst night sleep ever. There was no soundproofing between our room and the rooms next to us (or even the toilet down the corridor!) and as a result we spent the entire night trying to drown out the noise from someone talking on the phone next door. When someone flushed the... More

My friend and I arrived at the Hotel Ajau after a few days in Antigua and Panajachel...we were just making a two-day stop in Guatemala City on our way to El Salvador. Compared to what we experienced in the other cities in Guatemala (in hotels of the same price), this hotel was a seriously bad surprise. The room was small... More
