We had high hopes for the Mayan Inn as we had read all about it. The staff were very helpful and they assign someone to you personally to look after you and be your waiter. All the rooms have fireplaces as it is cold, but there is an overpowering smell of wood smoke everywhere, especially in the bedrooms and being...

This hotel is one of few places to stay - it's very close to the market.....Pros -- getting up in morning and stepping out into the street, blaze of colors, shamans on steps of church nearby. Glorious experience. The hotel is from 1926 and still has the same feel - felt like a traveller from the past....each room has personal...

Awesome rustic hotel less than a minute walk to the main market. Our family loved it here, and I highly recommend it to other travelers. That said, there are two parrots who are kept as pets in the courtyard, and they may be Guatemala's most prolific (and loudest) squawking demons. Thankfully they are put away at night, but do not...

Dear Duncan W, Thank you for your comment. I am glad that you loved your stay with us. On the other hand, I am sorry about the parrots, next time you come we can certainly give a room far away from the parrots so you can take your nap. Thank you again for staying with us!!

Stayed here for one night after visiting the market. It was a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the market. Room was nice with a wood burning fireplace,it was clean and very comfortable. It was next to market so very convenient to come back and drop of our goods and then go back out. Food was good.

The hotel is very rustic, and that makes sense given the remote location. Rooms were clean, food was good, and staff was very helpful. Enjoyed the wood fire in the evening. This is probably the best hotel in Chichi.

It was a very unique place with old furniture and original interior. We loved staying there. Be careful it gets a bit cold at night. But the hotel is trying to accommodate its guests by providing super warm blankets and firewood for making fire at your room. It was a romantic atmosphere and we liked it very much. Also, this...

Just steps from the famous market, the Mayan Inn offers a tranquil oasis. The outdoor, courtyard-style public areas are secluded, well furnished and beautifully landscaped. You'll spend time there because that's where the wifi is (you'll only get wifi in your room if you happen to be placed near a router), but that's fine because the courtyards are a great...

Had a very good time here. The negatives are the extremely slow hot water build up and pressure. Water never gets hot. Room only has a fireplace to heat up the room which is not enough. Otherwise a very nice hotel. Oh and beware of barking dogs at all hours of the night.

Mark R, Manager at Mayan Inn, responded to this review

Dear Richard, thank you for comment and feedback. Our hotel Museum preserves its original architecture and as part of that effort still preserves the original boilers that supply the hot water, because of this, it takes a few minutes to get warm. However I am glad that you liked the hotel. Look forward to welcoming you back.

The hotel is very typical Guatemalan hotel. There is a courtyard in the center with Tucan and parrots. It is very close to the famous market. Great for shopping and if you have to drop off your purchases every now and then, it is close enough to do so. There were barking dogs through out the night and roosters which...

The hotel was good as well as service. The location was very good. I recommend pick a room near the market because it's noisy. I was disappointed because there were only a bath (no shower, it was very short the shower head)

Dear Guy, Thank you for your comment and recommendation. I am sorry if you felt the shower head was too short for you. If you come again, we can give another room with the tallest shower head possible, since all the rooms are different. We look forward to seeing you again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mayan Inn opened its doors back in 1932, it was designed from the beginning to be a hotel museum by it's founder Mr. Alfred S. Clark, who patiently started this magnificent collection of Spanish colonial antiques collecting every door, table, chair, bed, chest, trunk, etc. That are today part of the decorations of this magnificent hotel. The Mayan Inn's private collection of paintings are priceless with original master pieces from Humberto Garavito, Alfredo Galvez, Antonio Tejeda, Carmen Pettersen, among others. The hotel is located in the heart of Chichicastenango with in walking distance of the market, church and cemetery. ... more   less
