I arrived at 7PM and the hotel was completely dark. No lights outside, and all of the lights were turned off in the common areas, including the entryway. In all of my travels I have never stayed at a hotel or B&B that shut down so early. The bed was hard as a rock, and the pillows were only marginally softer. There is no TV in the room. It bills itself as a museum, but that's an exaggeration to say the least. There are a few old artifacts, but that's about it. The hotel looked deserted, and the only other person I saw during my 2 days there was the hotel manager. He came out of his office and eyed me suspiciously whenever I walked through the hotel. I love old buildings and much prefer staying in local hotels rather than American chains, so I thought I would really like this hotel. I didn't. It was dreary, gloomy, and unwelcoming. I won't be back.
I liked the way the room was decorated in traditional Mayan style. There was a full-length mirror in the room, which is unusual in budget hotels. The shower was hot. Walking distance to Paseo de La Sexta and Plaza Mayor.
An quaint, atmospheric hotel in the heart of the historic centre of Guatemala City
It was like staying in a little museum. There were lots of artifacts, weaving, and paints. The rooms lined a pretty little courtyard, dining room, and small kitchen. A helpful, little map was provided by the hotel. You can easily walk to 6 Ave - a pedestrian only street - and centre plaza.
Beautiful hotel with museum items. The building dates from 1876. And a very friendly and helpful staff.
Safe and quiet but a bit dingy
Our room only had a window to the hallway, so we had to keep the window and curtain closed and had no natural light or fresh air. The lighting was poor, making it feel dingy. It concerned me that the only way to get out of the building was to find someone to unlock the front door.
It was in an old colonial building and nicely decorated in a traditional style. It was very quiet and secure. The young man at the desk was helpful in getting the four of us and our four suitcases packed into a tiny taxi at five in the morning.
Comfortable, and within a fifteen minute walk to the zocolo
The staff were super friendly.
Good location in historical zone 1
No hot water in the shower.
Friendly service and welcome, good location.
Beautiful location & amazing people
It is a beautiful space in the heart of the city. Marvin and the staff are amazing and made sure our stay was flawless. They also connected us to local guides and pointed us toward great activities.
A good option if you need to stay in Zone 1.
Well, Guatemala City is a tough place to visit - the neighborhood is fine, but you have to watch security at all times. It's farther from the airport that we thought.
Interesting hotel, really a private museum, with a lot of interesting art and artifacts all around. It ws nice to be able to eat dinner at the hotel, without having to wander out at night for a meal.
We loved the interior of the Inn; great fabrics, photos, drawing, figurines. Great service/comfort!
The neighborhood was one of the oldest in the city; it appeared unsafe, but we never felt threatened or in danger.
The staff waited on us hand and foot, constantly. They cleaned our dishes. They cleaned the room daily. They ordered the food we wanted. They were always asking us if we needed anything. They gave us directions to all our destinations. The ambiance was wonderful.
Very near to historical center
Not really a bar or restaurant available.
Good choice in Guate center
Place is safe, close to the Police station, and we could leave our car outside in the street. Stylish old house. Nice owner and serviceman.
A friendly oasis in the centre of the historic area
Wifi only in public area
Very helpful friendly staff Pleasant communal areas Reasonably well located
Not what it was hyped up to be!
Terribly overpriced for what you receive and the drinking water that they supply in the room is just the chlorinated tape water from the sink and the shower sort of worked but no hot water so we spent a dehydrated and chilly evening under a giant florescent lightbulb hanging in the middle of the room.
What we did enjoy was the old funky ambiance.
