We were picked up from the airport and taken on a quick 5-minute drive to our hotel. In the morning, we were made breakfast and enjoyed the rooftop area in the morning for a little bit of exercise and sunshine. If you need a place to stay near the airport, this is a very convenient and accommodating spot!

I made this my last stop before flying back to US. I arrived at right at sunset. This place is kind of hard to locate - drove around for half an hour looking for it - and isn't in the best of neighborhoods but my plan was to check in, eat, relax and get a igood night's sleep before my...

We were a large group of eleven people needing a home base in GC before travelling onwards to the highlands of Totonicapan. Trying to organize the room arrangements and flight schedules for folks coming from different countries was nothing short of a logistical nightmare. Rutt, the daughter and manager assisted us with details such as exchanging currency, buying a cell...

If you are flying in or out of Guatemala City airport, this is the place to stay. There's not really anything around - but it is literally a 2 minute drive to the airport, if that. And the hostel staff pick up and drop off for free. It's completely hassle free and totally dependable. Free breakfast too! Staff are friendly....

The good: 3 minute van ride from airport. Decent clean rooms. Fairly inexpensive but for 2 people it is $50 which depending on your standards may be worth spending $25 -$50 more to get a high end hotel. The zoo is literally around the corner.

Bathroom hot water, table, tv with a lot of channels, wifi, it's clean and the employee are very helpful and friendly. I would go again! Thx

If you don't have sky high standards, this place is perfect if you need to spend the night close to the airport. The pickup and drop off from the airport was excellent - fast, safe, and very friendly driver. The ride was short. The room was totally fine, the only thing we missed in our one night stay was warm...
