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

I spent a week at Hotel Ajau recently and couldn't recommend it more highly. I chose it because it's economical and comfortable; I stayed because the internet signal reached my room, the folks were friendly and I discovered that the owners are doing everything they can to be a truly sustainable business. Read about it and see photos here: http://theesperanzaproject.org/es/2010/05/hospitalidad-verde-en-guatemala-hotel-ajau/... More

Thanks for your comment Thirstyboots07, since your last stay we have upgraded the internet speed so the guests have faster access to the internet. We have installed solar panels to eliminate electric water heaters and are working together with the municipality to make the streets around us safer. We hope to see you soon. Best regards. More
