Hotels are expensive in Guatemala city, so you don't really have many options. We stayed here a few times, if you ask people where you could stay they'll recommend you this hotel. Many people recommended me here. It is close to la sexta so you can go walk, and it is safe. Plus it is clean and has nice architecture.

Rooms are filthy and in a state of disrepair with broken furniture, lamps, wires sticking out, etc. Public bathrooms are disgusting, and the shower/bath facilities are therefore unusable. The first room we received had 1 bed that was rock hard (I could not press into it with 170+lbs of weight) and 1 bed that was incredibly soft (I sat and immediately sank to the springs). Staff is friendly but the combination of abysmal conditions and a pretty high $/night means that you should avoid this hotel.

We came to Guatemala on a budget and planned to see a lot for less. If you looking for high end this isnt the place as the high end hotels are in Zone 4 ranging from $90us-$250 a nite. If you looking for somewhere to get a quiet rest after site seeing for between$18-$50us then this is the place in Zone 1. It has 5 floors and no elevators so if you get a room anywhere from #301 to 510 the stairs are a killer. Small cafe downstairs has excellent local dishes. Yes the place is run down as it has seen its better days but the staff is exceptionally helpful to your needs.

Old school charm in the heart of Guatemala City. Comfortable & large rooms. Security door to street front. Free water, coffee & tea. Breakfast is not included but there is a cafe on site. The showers are freezing, otherwise ok for couples or groups. Also has good wifi. The last night was rather noisy with the hotel lending it's rooms to some pretty racy clientele. Not sure whether we'd stay again, service was fairly average and we're pretty over cold showers!
