This beautiful hotel has been in Xela sine the 1930s. It is impeccably clean, simple but elegant, and in the perfect location to explore the city (and find it again when you are done). The staff is kind and helpful. There are beautiful views from the sitting area on the third floor. The wifi isn't great, but works and is... More

The Hotel Bonifaz offered everything you could want for a trip to Xela, especially if you will be there for a longer stay. The front desk staff were very nice and helpful and clearly accustomed to tourists of all types. Breakfast was excellent and they were patient with any special requests (and the immediate toast and coffee was really appreciated).... More

Great location just across from Central Park. Accommodated our large U.S. home-building team. Reliable dining room, super friendly staff, wi-if service, pleasant bar, hot showers, comfortable beds. Would stay here again.

It's a nice hotel in the historic center of Xela, with many nearby places to eat, drink and visit. The hotel itself is a beautiful historic building. The only thing I did not like was that the beds felt a bit harsh. For everything else, very good! Breakfast is very good.

Our organisation stayed here for a week, and enjoyed the convenient location, friendly service and clean, comfortable rooms in this historic hotel. We had a dining plan too, and the meals were good quality. For future trips to this city I'll recommend we stay here again.

We stayed three nights at the Bonifaz, while on a mission trip. We very much enjoyed the hotel, which is located right in the city center, across from a lovely park. There are many shops and eateries nearby, and a bank and ATM right next door. The rooms were comfortable, and very clean, as was all the hotel itself, and... More

This hotel is pretty much right on the central Plaza in Quetzaltenango Guatemala. It is an older building that escalates up a hillside. In the front it is 2 (1.5) stories high, but then you go back in the building it keeps going up. Each building section is only 2 or 3 stories high, but as it escalates up a... More

The first nights we were on the second floor, across the busy staircase, right by the sitting area. We could hear the conversations two floors down in the dining room! And of course everyone passing by our door. It looked like there was a balcony, but the patio door let you out in a closet size courtyard. Light came from... More

We always use this hotel for our guest when we travel to Quetzaltenango. This city by far is the second biggest city in Guatemala, but not with many options for acaccommodation, this is why I have rated this hotel as the most luxurious of Quetzaltenango! The rooms are very spacious, clean, hot water, very clean and well decorated! Also it... More
