We had business in the city and needed a budget place to stay for 4 nights. We both agree that the Hotel Spring was an excellent choice.
The Location was perfect. It was easy to get to all of our appointments, and it is within a couple of blocks of the Sexta ... the new downtown walking mall that connects to Guatemala's Central Park. I at no point felt that we were in any danger, although, this IS Guatemala City, so we did take the precaution of carrying nothing but a small amount of cash to pay for dinner, and we were back in the hotel by 9:30 pm.
The Hotel is old and still had a lot of the beautiful old detail like tall skinny hinged-doors, about 20' high ceilings with beautiful mouldings and traditional inner courtyards with lots of plants and seating. It is clean and I didn't see any insects (as was mentioned in a previous review). It was not as well maintained as it could be with investment dollars, but at $25 per double, it would be very difficult to do that.
The Service was excellent. The personnel were friendly and courteous and always helpful.
I like that it includes cable tv, indoor parking and water bottle refills.
I would definitely return to this hotel when i an in the city.
