We chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews, but this was the least-favourite place we stayed in Guatemala. Much of what the reviews said is correct: Pedro is very nice and speaks excellent English, the flowery courtyard is pretty, and the rooms are clean and bathrooms fine. But I really disliked our room, though I´m sure that others would not agree with me. It was, indeed, large, but really unattractive. Although there were cheerful Guatemalan bed covers and headboards, all the other pieces of furniture in the room were positively battered Salvation Army rejects. The lamps were positively kitch, with Guatemalan carved animals complete with lampshades. Unfortunately, the colourful bed covers clashed horribly with the pinkish terrazo tile floor. Worst was the fact that the room was dingy and the windows had obscure glass. As it was cold out, we couldn´t even open them to enjoy the view. Unfortunakey Chichi has almost no middle-range hotels, but this was the only case where we wished we´d opted for one of the two top hotels, which were both lovely.
