My boyfriend and I recently traveled to Guatemala and the first place we stayed was Casa Florencia. The staff was very warm and welcoming (although some did not speak very much English for those who don't speak Spanish) and they made several suggestions for activities and events for us to partake in. The rooms are nicely decorated and more importantly very clean with hot water showers and private bathrooms. Its located 7 blocks from the main city center which is nice because its quite busy over there so being on a quiet side street adds the the tranquility of the place. But it is a MUST to get a room on the 2nd floor where the morning views of Volcan Agua are breathtaking!! You can sit and enjoy Casa's complimentary coffee in one of the chairs or benches here and just enjoy the volcano. The rooms of the first floor do not have a view.
