Looking for a good starting point for sites but staying in Guatemala City? This is your spot! Friendly, clean, safe, accessible. restaurants and bars are not close-but there is a tiny bodega around the corner and the staff is more than willing to help with anything you need. My advice is stock up on food and beer to save cash... More

Spent some days on biz trip in Guatemala. Small luxury hotel with nice garden. Suggest to ask for an internal room to avoid noise of traffic. No gym ..could put something in the garden... Breakfast is fine. Will come back.

Centrally located in the middle of downtown Guatemala City and only minutes from the airport (and on the same block as the USA embassy), this boutique and luxury hotel is a gem. Built in a colonial style, this converted private residence is now a wonderful 20+ room/suite hotel. Beautifully decorated with spotless hard wood floors throughout, you will truly be... More

The hotel is clean and the decor is very pleasant. Rooms come with a free breakfast and two free drinks. The hotel is very secure and there is a guard is on the gate to allow you in and out of the hotel. Very good value for money in a good location...

I spent three nights at the hotel, dined in the restaurant a number of times and everything was great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant provided an excellent variety of food and everything I had was of a very high standard. The rooms are lovely and everything is spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend San Carlos.

Beautifully furnished hotel with reasonable rates and excellent breakfast. The rooms are large and beds extremely comfortable. The shower had lovely hot water. At check-in the receptionist was also kind enough to give us 2 free welcome drinks as well as a free airport shuttle service. The only slight negative is dodgy wifi but who needs it when you are...

Great room clean, comfy bed, tv, excellent service st the front desk. The door is tiny, we heard a lot of noise from the outside. We appreciated the breakfast and the taxi service drop off to the airport.
