“Casa Las Canchitas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2014

My stay was pleasant to the extreme - the rooms were large, clean and insect free.

The bathrooms and showers were without problems and again clean and efficient with shower gel and shampoo in constant supply

The rooms are cleaned daily which was unusual for Guatamala and having stayed in 2 or 3 previous B & B hotels, Casa Las Canchitas was a pleasant and refreshing surprise.

The hosts are extremely pleasant and accommodating to the extreme

The hotel itself is in a quieter and safer location than the majority of other similar hotels in zone 2, and ideally located to get to and from the airport.

Stores and restaurants are within easy walking distance - wifi connection is constant and uninterrupted - and there is a roof area and sitting area inside which is both quiet and very pleasant to work from

Breakfast is first class, balanced and almost addictive.

Ernest is quiet but very capable, assisting and accommodating.

My initial contact was responded to immediately and not the usual scripted artificial response found with nearly every other host I have dealt with.

The hosts and accommodation are a rare combination both for individuals and family groups.

Comfy beds, lots of storage, clean. Offered the best shower I had had in a month. Close to the main plaza. Delicious breakfast and lots of good advice about things to do in Guatemala City. Very friendly hosts. Great stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room in the back, and used the fan provided to circulate the air.

A small hotel ran by a young adorable couple. Extremely clean and aesthetic with very comfortable beds and a boutique touch to everything. Breakfast was excellent and the location is also very nice - 20 mins from the airport, 15 mins walk from the town center and nearby shops and restaurants. To top it all the owners were the most welcoming and helpful one can expect and really made us feel at home. Finally, this is all at a very reasonable price compared to the city - highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: The quadruple room on the second room is attached to the shared bathroom making it practically a pr...

This is the first time we had been to Guatemala city and we had heard and read bad things about this city before arriving. We were picked up in a cab from our overnight bus from Nicaragua, by Ernie, lil Maya and their reliable cab driver. It was the start of a nice stay with Ernie and Rachel at Casa Las Canchitas. We loved the rooms, so clean and comfortable (best mattresses on our whole trip of 6 months) And large rooms. The breakfast that they make is amazing and you get 3 different choices. The area around Zona 2 is really safe as we went for dinner at Jazz Cafe and returned before 10pm and we didn't have any problems. There are a few options to eat nearby walking distance- Subway, Tacontento, bakery, pizza and pasta, and the Jazz Cafe was pretty nice. At lunch we suggest trying Casa de las Melaza for 20 quetzales, amazing.
This place is amazing and we will be recommending it to everyone who wants to visit Guate. Oh and the amazing rooftop to chill and watch the sun go down is another nice touch. A big Thankyou to Rachel and Ernie for making our stay amazing.

Room Tip: The only difference between the 2 rooms we stayed in were that the end room for us as a couple was c...

I travel once or twice per year to Guatemala from Toronto on business. I have stayed at various hotels and found the experience to be fairly good for the most part, however I wanted something a little different on this past trip in late June, 2014. After some research I discovered Casa Las Canchitas. It looked interesting so I gave it a try.

I am so glad I went there. Their Canadian style hospitality was very refreshing and felt more like home than any place I've stayed at in any foreign country.

Highlights:
- overall the place was very clean
- the beds and other furnishings are of excellent quality
- the breakfast they provided was amazing - Guatemalan style but suited to my Canadian palate
- the owners are very friendly and personable
- wifi access was reliable
- close to the city centre

I will definitely be making this my accommodation of choice for future trips to
Guate.

i travelled in Guatemala for a week and one of my highlights was Ernie and Rachel's B&B. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms were very clean. The owners are friendly and very helpful and the breakfasts are large and delicious. i would definately stay there again.

I stayed here for a transit stop as I moved through Guatemala. The owners Ernest and Rachel run the place and they are quite simply awesome. As well as being native english speakers, they make you feel right at home. Oh and check out the rooftop patio, and bring a beer - beautiful!
