“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We have been staying at Villa Toscana for many years. They just get better and better. Very friendly, VERY clean, very tastefully decorated and good food. The price of the airport shuttle is included as well. And, we can always count on a reasonable price!

Nice, pleasant surprise. They had a driver waiting for us at the bus terminal. For $75Q we had a taxi ride from the Litegua terminal to the B&B. We had a very nice dinner in their garden. You can order from a menu of Chinese or Mexican and it is comes from a restaurant to your table in about 15 minutes. Didn't get up in time for the included breakfast but loved the place. They speak English and were very helpful.

We flew in on an evening flight from Flores and needed a convenient, comfortable, reasonably priced place to spend the night before catching our flight to Miami. We could not have been more satisfied with Villa Toscana. Convenient: It is literally no more than a 15 minute walk to the Aurora Airport terminal. Comfortable: the room was very clean, spacious and the bed was the most comfortable we experienced in a month of travel in Guatemala; the interior garden is lush and meticulously manicured, and the breakfast area opening onto it is a delightful place to enjoy the delicious breakfast that is served. But what makes this little gem of a hotel especially comfortable and convenient is the exceptional staff; every member of the staff with whom we had any contact--housekeeper, desk clerks, cook, food server, maintenance staff--everyone was cheerful, friendly,and clearly focused on making our stay as comfortable as possible and on accommodating our every need. A special thank you to Mario, the desk clerk who was so kind and welcoming when we arrived late in the evening along with several other groups. How nice to discover, the next morning when we came down for breakfast and needed to print out boarding passes and arrange transportation to the airport, that Mario was characteristic of everyone else on the staff. If we come through Guatemala City again, we will stay here with pleasure.

Room Tip: The "matrimonial suite" on the third floor is spacious, very well furnished, has a large...

I was meeting my daughter, who had a late arrival and wanted a safe, comfortable place for us for the night, that was close to the airport. This hotel was perfect! It was clean, nicely furnished and comfortable, quiet, with excellent service. I would definitely stay here again.

Villa Toscana is good place to stay. The location is close to the airport and excellent for early morning flights, although a little away from the rest of Guatemala City. The room was clean and the staff were very helpful. I'd recommend this place to family and friends.

Stayed here for 2 nights last week. On the positive: Rooms are clean, large had hot water - though not enough to take a real bath in the nice tub. Great breakfast and very helpful, friendly English speaking staff both day and evening. Across the street from the airport and free shuttle there made it very convenient.

On the negative: A military training camp one block away. The drums and loud chants of the soldiers were disturbing. So were the airplanes taking off, landing and the dog nearby barking.
The area is safe because each block is strongly gated and access is through a gate with guards which, while you might be safe, felt like a total prison. Didn't leave the room past 5 PM but Guatemala City is boring so there was nowhere I wanted to go anyway.
I had a friend staying in another city who had a cell phone. The owner made a call to her for me and though it was not a long distance call, charged me 25 cents/minute for the call. It was petty and a rip off knowing it didn't cost them a penny to make that call.

Room Tip: Good place to be if you are flying out early in the morning or arriving late at night. Otherwise, f...

The main reason we stayed here was because of the proximity to the airport. We only stayed one night and flew out early the next morning. The amenities weren't too bad, but dated. Had an old school TV and the bathroom could use some updating. It was also kind of hard to find the place since it's in a gated area and has a small sign. Fortunately we found it without too much guessing. One thing that bothered me was when we checked in, the woman couldn't process the credit card. She ended up calling a bank and then making an imprint of the card using pencil lead. It took about five times longer than it should have and she failed to give me the (poor) card back. I had to ask for it. We had to leave before breakfast was served, so I can't comment on it. As a consolation, we did get some breakfast bars and juice.

Would we ever stay there again? Probably not, but it did serve its purpose.
