If you are flying out of Guatemala City airport, and must stay in Guatemala City the evening before, this is the perfect location. It is safe, the owners are friendly (and speak English) and the meals are relatively tasty. The room comes with free wi-fi, and the hotel will organise a free airport shuttle service for you - no matter what time your flight is.

We stayed here the night before our early flight to Nicaragua and is really was excellent. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and tidy and there was a communal lounge area for chilling or catching up on emails. We didn't want to venture out into the city so were quite happy to relax for a while. The owner made us the most amazing Italian food with fresh herbs from the garden. The next morning, as promised, Victor collected us at 3.00am and took us to the airport. Great place, ideally situated for the airport,.

For the price you can't really argue. It was my first time in Guatemala on medical mission alone, so I went through the company that knows the owner of this hotel and that I would trust to get me to and from my destinations.

Dos Lunas is secluded. Nothing is around and it is not near the city. It's more like a hostel where you share bathrooms. Although, they do have rooms with private bathrooms for additional price. Keep in mind that it's August and was raining while I was there.

Cons: damped room, damped sheets and bedding, no air conditioning, stuffy (unless you sleep with the windows open; but there are no window screen), loud when other guest are in common area you can hear their conversations, food is okay, not as clean as I hoped

Pros: price, free airport shuttle, friendly staff that speaks English well, staff may also help you order pizza or McD, breakfast was decent, and they did not charge me extra when I asked for milk in my coffee (which is additional everywhere else I visited), it's a great place to stay if you are not a picky person and just need a bed before or immediately after a flight, Victor was wonderful

After I became comfortable in Guatemala alone, on the way back I decided to splurge and stayed at a different hotel that was nice, dry, air conditioned and also provided airport shuttle for free.

Room Tip: Private bathrooms are available and worth it. The take US dollars and you should get your Quetzal a...

Having visited Guatemala a number of times I wanted to post a review of Dos Lunas which is definitely my favourite place to stay in Guatemala City. Lorena and Hank who run the hotel are brilliant and speak perfect English. They are always happy to help and answer any questions that you might have. They will also arrange for you to be picked up from the airport / taken to the airport which is not that far away - 5 mins drive.

Dos Lunas is clean and tidy. Beds (including pillows! ) are really comfy - a bit of a rarity in Guatemala to have comfortable pillows. There are some rooms with en suite and others with shared bathroom.

As far as food goes, breakfast is provided which is yummy and has lots of choice. They also do other meals if you need to - you can order them, or lorena will happily call up a take - out place who will deliver food to you (including McDonalds!).
Definitely a great place to stay when arriving or leaving from the airport.

My husband, daughter (12 years old) and I had the great fortune of reading about this hotel here and are so happy we followed other's advice.... stay here upon entering and leaving Guatemala!! To see Victor at the airport at 9pm after a long day of flying and to know that we were safely in his hands to get to the hotel... was simply put " a fantastic beginning to our trip". Lorena and her husband Henk made us feel at home right away. My daughter enjoyed her first Guatemallan breakfast and experience talking to other backpackers/guests here. She loved her cookies for breakfast and Lorena's beans are top-notch as well. They provide drinking water as well (great for a first nite) and onward transportation. All the necessities you need to begin and unfortunately end a trip. When we returned, it felt like returning home and made our departure less painful. They are a fantastic and warm couple who will make you want to return to Guatemala. (PS. We had dinner next door and it was amazing! ) They make everything so easy for you.... Thank you Lorena and Henk for a fantastic stay. If you are a family or not (and are arriving and need to do a stay in Guat city) this is your best choice!
