I loved 3 things about this hotel:
a) Fantastic location. I was a bit nervous about staying there in zone 1. But I felt safe the whole time when I was there! As long as you don't venture out of the pedestrian street (avenida 6) which is just around the corner, you will be just fine. All the major attractions are within walking distance. Don't miss the artisan market behind the church! It's the best place for souvenir shopping in the entire country. In fact, you don't need to buy anything anywhere else. Go there at the end of your trip and you can find anything and everything at the best prices.
b) Great restaurant. I had 3 meals there and every single one was delicious. You can't go wrong with anything that's marked "our specialty" on the menu. I noticed that a lot of the locals went there for dinner and brunch. You can't go wrong with that. Got to eat there!
c) The retro feel. This is an old hotel and the rooms can use some TLC. But the decor is in a "old school chic" kind of way. Probably not everybody's cup of tea. But I really liked it.
You could stay at the Holiday Inn, Marcelo or Hard Rock in the hotel zone. Or, you could stay here and see the real Guatemala City. For me, the choice was pretty obvious. :=)
