I recently spend 4 days in Guatemala city (out of a total of 9 in Guatemala) and while I suggest spending only a couple if your on vacation, if you have to stay in Guatemala city it has it's charms and several things to keep you occupied. The Barcelo Hotel was a very good value for the money and is in a safe secure area very close to the main action in Zona 10 just a 5 minute walk away (though you will cross a couple of very busy streets).
The hotel gym and spa was excellent and there are plenty of food options on site. The breakfast buffet was also one of the best I've experienced in Latin America, a real treat.
The rooms were relatively quiet (full disclosure, I live in noisy Manhattan area) with soundproofed windows and no thumping disco music or noisy neighbors while I was there. The staff was friendly and service was good and I had no negative issues at all. All in all a very positive experience.
