“Another marvelous stay at the Barcelo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I stayed for five nights at the Barcelo. This was my second visit in two years and I am even more
impressed than the first time. The front desk reception was fantastic. Jorge was wonderful upon check in. He assisted in finding the right room for me and I wound up with a great room in the tower wing on the 6th floor. What an accomodating professional. The Barcelo staff is top notch!
The breakfast buffet in the morning is also fantastic. What a huge selection of hot and cold items
including a vast array of fresh fruit and pastries.

A quick note if you need a hair salon close by there is a great place on 14 calle 7-1|3 zona 9 two blocks from the Barcelo ----Estetica Unisex Egos is the best place to get your hair done in
Guatemala city! Reasonable and a fabulous job!!!!!!

<LA TORRE supermarket on Reforma is also great for shopping needs as well.

The Barcelo is in an ideal location for all of your needs in Guatemala City. YOU can also get to the Centro Historico by taking the metro bus at the <plaza de espana station two blocks from
the hotel. The cost is only 1 Quetzal.

Hope the tips help. The Barcelo is the only place to stay in Guatemala City!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the newer modern Tower Wing. Renovated spacious rooms right off the front lobby. T...

Barcelo Guatemala City is the perfect stay! it is close to the Aurora International Airport and to the great Zona Viva area with plenty of good restaurants, clubs and excellent entertainment.
The hotel staff is great! Great service and an incredible breakfast. On my next trip I will not hesitate to stay here again!

We just arrived from a long trip from the airport and they said they had no system and that they could not give us our room wich is prepaid and to leave and to call tommorow for a refund or date change he did not offer a complimentary meal or help on finding another hotel. Nothing!! NADA! my husband pissed of and a really nice man near the lobby told us its crap this guy simply does not know how to do his job and that they indeed should give us a room even if there is no system So my husband talked to the guy and demanded our room. So we are waiting now for the rooms. And very pissed of and tired!! He now says to wait 10 minutesm there is also a woman who has been wating for 2 hours!!! Last time i stay here!

A short ride from the airport and in the middle of downtown. I walked into an impressive hotel lobby. The check-in was easy and the clerk was pleasant and helpful. The room was very nice and the bed comfort could not have been better. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip. The hotel restaurant was good but was also able to walk to several other very good restaurants at night.

We stayed there for a week in May and I can say we felt safe in the area and with the staf on point at all times of the day and early mornings, the lobby was very impressive the resturant was outstanding and the breakfast buffet was very good the pool was nice to come back and relax in.

Room Tip: ask for a nonsmoking room

I stayed at Barcelo Hotel for 3nts on a holiday, I've stayed there previously but this time the quality of service was above and beyond my expectations. The restaurants, the food, the preparation and the cleanliness was as impeccable as any 5star hotel. I was able to speak to the head executive chef Nina Aldana Garcia, hats off to her for her professionalism and experience in keeping a unique food quality and selection for business and vacationing travelers.
The location from and to the airport is just 10 minutes away, the hotel provides complimentary shuttle service. I recommend anyone this hotel for pleasure or business!!

We stayed at the Barcelo in Guatemala City for a week in June. I was apprehensive traveling to Guatemala as I had heard about increasing violence there. This hotel was very secure. We felt very safe and enjoyed our stay there. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. Great food and we loved the patio seating. Their outdoor swimming pool was fantastic. We enjoyed laying out in the sun and swimming. The bedrooms are nice and do have firm beds. They provide many amenities other hotels do not. Toothbrush, razor, bath sponge, and more! They also leave two water bottles everyday for your consumption. We would most definitely stay at this hotel again!
