This was our first stop on a month long trip in Guatemala/Belize. Our main reason for taking this hotel was the reviews and the fact that they took Paypal to reserve our room.
They had a van pick us up a the airport in GC. Always nice to see ones name on a placard when arriving late at night in a foreign country.
We would consider this an average room for value compared to other rooms we stayed in. The staff was very helpful and spoke english. The room #11, was clean and had everything a traveller could want: a Wifi desk, a place to put suitcases, coathooks and a decent bathroom with lots of hot water in the shower. There was some wall decoration in the room which gave it some ambience. We particularly liked opening the curtains and window on the first morning and viewing the volcano.
I found the bed to be to hard, but that may be personal choice thing. What we missed most, as we don't stay out late, was place to sit around. The rooftop terrace wasn't set up very well and when we went up it was full of laundry and the benches don't view the volcano. On our two returns to Antigua we chose hotels with courtyards where we could come back during the day and evening and relax, drink a glass of wine, read a book or talk to other travellers.
This isn't meant as a negative review and we are not unhappy we stayed there, it is just upon looking around we found better value options.
