“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

I was first impressed by the ambience of the hotel when I walked in the first time. This property is beautiful. There were many people there to serve the clients. The food in the dining room was quite delicious and bountiful. The rooms were extremely nice, with large beds, plenty of pillows, and plentiful amenities in the bathroom. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Guatemala City.

I live in Guatemala, my parents came to visit and we decided to stay at the Barcelo since they had a good experience in their last stay there. It was great!

I stayed on the top floor, the rooms were clean and beautiful, bed was firm, service was excellent, breakfast was wonderful, pool was warm and Jacuzzi hot.

The only things I can say as a negative: The bathroom door cannot be locked, but that didn't bother us any. Also, the air conditioner in our room made a rattling noise, kind of like a fan. My parents were on the 8th floor and didn't have any issues with their air conditioner though. Since it didn't bother us (we sleep with a fan on at home) I didn't complain. The staff is so friendly and efficient they would probably have switched our room if I had complained.

My daughters didn't want to leave, and to be honest, neither did I!

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...

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.
