At a hundred Qs for a private room with en suite, this is the best value I found in Guate (when taking into account the location as well).
Contrary to a previous review, the location is safe (the previous reviewer must have the nerves of a miniature Chihuahua) on a wide, well lit side street, very close to the big fast food chains and close to many good restaurants around the Holiday Inn area. It's also good for the Transmetro (the cheap, new, clean and safe bus system in the city). Walk to either end of the street and you'll not be waiting long for a taxi.
The bad bits - no wifi (despite the lady owner saying I could use the restaurant's next door, the restaurant knew nothing of this agreement and it wasn't working anyway). The room smelled a bit of damp and the en suite could have done with a good scrub.
That said, you get what you pay for and I wasn't unduly unhappy with this place
