I picked The Howard Johnson Inn Guatemala City for the fact of its being within walking distance of the Museo Popol Vuh and Museo Ixchel de Traje Indigena. (They're about a 20 minute walk.) It wasn't a bad place to be for exploring the Zona 1 as the TransMetro takes you there in about 20 minutes. Really I have no... More

Stayed here one night in March 2016. The room was adequate and quite honestly I was exhausted from traveling so I went to sleep quickly. I would not recommend going out at night or after dark. The hotel had an armed guard outside the door. I don't know about location as we were in and out within 10 hours. Adequate... More

Man oh man, I have pretty mixed reviews about this place. I stayed here twice. First impressions: I had to call them on the phone to let them know my flight arrived, since they never responded to my email about confirmation of pick up at the airport. The front desk guy didn't even greet me. He basically just asked what... More

The hotel was nice, but nothing special. The check-in (and out) was very fast and efficient. Personnel was friendly and most of them spoke English. The breakfast was not as good as we have used to have in hotels (not buffet), but still quite good. Free transportation to airport was nice service.

This hotel is ok. It's a bit expensive relative to other, nicer hotels in Guatemala City. The hallways and rooms are dark, but pretty clean. It's not a bad place to stay the night before or after a flight, but if you're going to stay multiple nights in the city, there are similarly priced hotels that are much nicer.
