“Great service and Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Very convenient being close to the airport. In hotel restaurant serves up a great meal. Gave it a 4 instead of 5 due to the beds could have been more comfortable plus had an issue connecting to the wifi. I would definitely recommend and/or return.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

Maybe a bit dated and ugly from the outside but with a nice pool, well appointed rooms, parking and free airport shuttle + great breakfast within walking distance from all of Zone 9 and 10. Generic large hotel experience done well.

Room Tip: The West tower is older and rooms are smaller with less amenities (but still pretty good) but has su...

This was a lovely hotel, I stayed here for a week for work. Hadn't stayed in a Barceló hotel before, and the rooms were very comfortable, spacious, and luxurious-feeling, good wifi connection for work. There were thoughtful little touches that made a very nice difference (who can resist welcome treats and fruits in the room?). Very nice and helpful service. Would definitely stay here again!

Recently I toured Guatemala with three different stays at the Guatemala City Barcelo so I had an opportunity to experience the facilties on three different times (weekend, end-week and mid-week). All three stays were excellent and I would most definitately return and recommend this Barcelo. The front desk was exceptionally friendy and helpful. The sports bar, and two other restaruants had a wide selection with reasonable prices. The business center was courteous and very helpful in arranging for private taxi with English speaking driver to see the city since my tour company did not have that included. Likewise, having an American Airlines facilty in the hotel made it extremely simple to check in upon departure and obtain boarding passes. The loaction on La Reforma Ave in Zone 9 made access to the city very easy and simple. Likewise, I like to walk and experience the local environment, I had no issues with security concerns when walking along La Reforma Ave and 7th Avenue even during early evening. The location was a block from a supermarket, cafes, and entertainment. An excellent deal for the price and what a guest receives.

Room Tip: All the rooms were excellent - I was on 3rd floor, then 4th floor and last 9th floor.

We stayed 3 nights recently and absolutely loved the Hotel. The atmosphere and ambience were grand. The food bar was excellent weather for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner. The only drawback was the King size beds that were quite firm. The location was very central to downtown. The rates were average/reasonable. We would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: Request a softer bed.

Clean rooms, comfortable beds, a safe in all rooms, and nice pool . The dinner and breakfast buffet were very good the sports bar food was so so. Located close to the airport.
Guatemala City is a beautiful clean safe place. All of the neighborhoods in the city compete for recognition of cleanliness and upkeep.

nice large clean rooms with excellent firm beds. however lobby is 100% charmless, a business hotel at its worst, dreadful bar, so so restaurants, and if there is such a thing, too much security. feels more like a business prison than what it claims to be -- a luxury hotel.
