Hotels are expensive in Guatemala city, so you don't really have many options. We stayed here a few times, if you ask people where you could stay they'll recommend you this hotel. Many people recommended me here. It is close to la sexta so you can go walk, and it is safe. Plus it is clean and has nice architecture.

Rooms are filthy and in a state of disrepair with broken furniture, lamps, wires sticking out, etc. Public bathrooms are disgusting, and the shower/bath facilities are therefore unusable. The first room we received had 1 bed that was rock hard (I could not press into it with 170+lbs of weight) and 1 bed that was incredibly soft (I sat and...

Old school charm in the heart of Guatemala City. Comfortable & large rooms. Security door to street front. Free water, coffee & tea. Breakfast is not included but there is a cafe on site. The showers are freezing, otherwise ok for couples or groups. Also has good wifi. The last night was rather noisy with the hotel lending it's rooms...

I would only stay here one night, on the way to somewhere else. The hotel is in a beautiful old building, but could do with a renovation. The location is not so good ( everyone will tell you to be careful if thieves) but there is a police headquarters around the corner and an armed guard at the pharmacy next...

I struggled with this review, because we saw 2 other hotels around the area, and this one was the best one...it was late at night, and we weren't interested in walking around anymore. So it's better than what we saw.... but it's definitely not better than what is in Antigua. I wouldn't call this place expensive by any means, but...

This place probably had its heyday a few decades back. Today, it is dark, a bit run-down, and like a haunted mansion at night. The workers were very attentive and had good service, but the facilities... there are water and coffee pitchers out in the halls, so that was nice. There are 3 types of rooms (shower & TV, shower...
