4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

I was booked here for a business trip. My work was located 1 block away. My 2 room suite was comfortable and roomy. Good internet connection included in rate. Numerous dining options in the neighborhood. Zona 10 is full of shopping and dining options for tourists. Front desk staff speak English - perfect since I speak little Spanish.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

I stayed in this hotel twice in September 2013. The suites are ample and well furnished. The restaurant has a limited menu but good food, well prepared. My complaint arises from a single incident which caused me to drop the rating one notch. I left a suitcase in storage during a short trip into the interior. When I returned, I handed the claim ticket to the bellhop who promised to deliver it to my room. After waiting 40 minutes, I went downstairs to inquire about my suitcase. The bellhop said he couldn't find the case and handed the claim check to a receptionist who gave it to another receptionist who was busy with a guest. After a long wait, this receptionist handed the ticket to yet another receptionist who came to me and inquired what it was that I wanted. The ticket was handed off to yet another person who disappeared for 15 minutes while another staff member tried to make small talk with me. Finally, more than an hour after I checked in, they produced my suitcase. This could have been an unusual situation but it was unpleasant and suggests a certain degree of disorganization and lack of accountability.

Clarion Suites Guatemala is just the perfect hotel for a business trip. A charming environment in the breakfast hall, very good rooms and service.
The neighborhood has a lot of restaurants and places to go at night.

Checking in to the hotel was traumatic. We arrived in a vehicle and the drive into the underground parking was scary to say the least. Don´t bother parking your there if you´re driving a large SUV because it would be practically impossible to get out. The personel at the front desk were anything but helpful no smiles, no freindliness, just very cold. They never asked for my credit card to go on record so I had to pay cash for all my in-room meals.
The rooms are large but have outdated furniture and decor. The beds are ok but there was a slight smell of mildew in the room. The bathroom fixtures, faucets and towels are really, really old and worn out.
The breakfast area looks like King Kong´s hide out at Skull Island and the food is really sub standard. I would never stay at this hotel again unless I really had to.
The only con I can think of is location.

Consistently good service. Towels could do with an upgrade. Morning (5am) front desk crew not well informed as to messages left for airport pickup. Breakfast buffet is expensive if you don't want to pig out. Cheaper to order a la carte. Relatively safe area.

Room Tip: Rooms on south side are quieter i.e. Not on street side due to disco and casino noise.

I enjoyed my stay here. It is close to all downtown business sites such as lawyers, banks, internet printer offices and restaurants for lunchtime meeting.

I had previously stayed at a Clarion somewhere else ( I cant remember where) and it was comparable and standard is high.

I was here for about 10 days and the owner even took us over to Antigua for dinner. Thats a very nice gesture. I believe the hotel has a presence in Antigua and I know for sure they have a very nice resort at or close to Puerto Barrios near Rio Dulce.

Room Tip: I cannot remember which are the best sides to have a room on but the ones facing the street are a l...

I stayed here one night before catching the bus the next day to Quetzaltenango. As other reviewers note, the Clarion is located in Zone 10 clustered with several high quality hotels. I was struck by the size of my suite, which included a large, well-furnished living area, an equally large bedroom and bathroom in immaculate condition. The floors in the living and sleeping areas had a nice hardwood veneer, and the bathroom area was tiled. The king size bed was comfortable with a good supply of big fluffy pillows. At the price, this hotel is a true bargain. The bar tucked to the side off the lobby floor has somewhat the ambience of an English pub. A pleasant place for a nightcap. Only a couple of negatives, neither of which would prevent me from staying here again. As another reviewer has indicated, the bathroom towels aren't quite up to the standard set by the suite itself. Also, though the hotel website claims to provide shuttle service from the airport, when I called the hotel on my arrival at the airport I was told ghat they do not provide shuttle service. This is a rather bigger issue than the towels since hotel shuttle service relieves one of the hassle of getting a taxi. That might be a game-stopper for someone who would prefer the higher level of security that a shuttle provides. In my case, it was just a minor irritation.
