“Wonderful Guatemalan B&B”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Casa de Familia is a fabulous family owned and operated Bed and Breakfast just outside Guatemala City. The owner Gilda (pronounced Hilda) is fluent in both English and Spanish and is an invaluable resource for all things Guatemalan.

I spent several days with Gilda and her family and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The house was clean, quiet, warm and inviting. It is in an ideal location such that you can get into the city easily, you are close to central shopping centers but also that you are isolated from the noise and bustle of actual city life. There was free fast Wifi, a well maintained garden and a BBQ. For breakfast tasty typical Guatemalan dishes were served each morning.

The best part about my stay wasn't the amenities though, it was Gilda and her family. They were friendly, open and absolutely made me feel comfortable and welcomed. Great conversationalists too! Gilda was there to answer any questions about Guatemala and was a wonderful tour guide. She was knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the city which was extremely helpful when I was in search of the best and safest areas to explore or just to have a meal. If I needed to run an errand Gilda often offered to drive me to my destination(s) and would help translate or negotiate a better price when possible.

If you're looking for a safe, welcoming, clean, home away from home while you're in Guatemala, I HIGHLY recommend Casa de Familia.
