Casa Xelaju was my home for 7 months (Jan-July 2014), and I absolutely loved it! All together I stayed in four different apartments at Casa Xelaju, and they were all really nice and comfy and spacious, and with great facilities. Pretty much all the apartments have amazing views over Xela and great balconies (this is a luxury in Xela)! Wifi... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. We worked directly with both Gilda and Carlos; both very helpful, kind, and generous. Great location near parque central, and all the basic accommodations needed in an apartment. We lived here for 2 weeks while studying Spanish and did all our cooking here. Great hot water availability and flat screen TV with cable to watch... More

We recently stayed at the Casa (3 bedrooms) at Casa Xelaju for 5 weeks while studying Spanish. We are a couple in our 50's so wanted private accomodation rather than family homestay. Casa Xelaju was perfect in every way. From the time we arrived we were welcomed here by the friendly team and owners of Casa Xelaju. We stayed in... More

I stayed at Casa Xelaju for 5 months and I was upset not being able to bring this apartment with me to my next destination! I miss it! It has everything you need, kitchen was complete and I enjoyed the bathtub a lot during the rain season! The staff is very kind and helpful. The internet works good, the last... More

If you're looking for a clean, safe, centrally located place to stay with all of the amenities, then look no further than the very comfortable Casa Xelaju apartments. I first studied Spanish at Casa Xelaju twenty years ago and stayed with a family which was a great experience. But the sad truth is that I'm older now and prefer my... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at one of the apartments at this school in March of this year. The apartment is spacious, with comfortable furniture and a well-equipped kitchen. The wi-fi connectivity was excellent and the apartment has hot water – a rare commodity in Quetzaltenango. The views offer a panorama of central Quetzaltenango and the... More

The apartments and house for rent next to Casa Xelaju are really nice. They are clean and new and it's a really convenient location to a lot of nice places in the "zona viva" in Xela They provide the best combination of clean, new, secure, and conveniently located of any apartments I know of in the city. They come with... More

My family spent a month in Xela last summer and decided to rent the house at Casa Xelaju. It was a great choice. The location is ideal, just a couple of blocks from the parque central and all the restaurants, cafes and clubs around it but it's in a surprisingly quiet little corner of Zone 1. The house is very... More

I stay here every time I come to Xela and I absolutely wouldn't consider another apartment. They truly offer the most for the money. Apartments are fully furnished with an on site staff to cater to any whim or need you may have. Gas tank ran out while I was cooking and was replaced within an hour. WiFi is a... More

The only option in town, really! My friend and I spent two days looking for furnished apartments in Xela and Casa Xelaju was the most beautiful by far. It is clean, well-equipped and in a location that offers easy access to anywhere you need in Zona 1. Highly recommended!
