“Best Value and Nicest Stay in Guatemala”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

I recently came back from a month in Guatemala, and stayed at the Mariana Petit Hotel on our last night before flying out. Of all the places we stayed all over the country, this was by far the nicest and best value. We paid $37 which included:

- private queen bedroom
- private bathroom
- wifi
- free use of computer
- large breakfast (coffee or tea, eggs, fresh bread, beans, fresh fruit salad, juice)
- airport/pickup dropoff

The rooms were clean, spacious, and quiet. The hotel (feels more like a Bed and Breakfast, very cute and peaceful) is five minutes from the airport and in a really safe, gated community. The owners were extremely gracious and helpful. You can easily pay double the price for not as nice of a hotel in Guatemala City (which we did when we first flew in), and I will definitely choose to stay here again in the future.

My wife and I stayed here one night before she left Guatemala. We were the only ones staying in the 5 room hotel that has been converted from a previously large home. The room was large and clean, the beds comfortable, breakfast was delicious, and the service staff very attentive to our needs and desires.

I recommend eating dinner prior to checking in for the night as there is no restaurant nearby where one can walk to eat.

Room Tip: Our room (#1) was a little warm and stuffy as the windows would not open. The stand fan in the room...

I spent 1 night before leaving the country after a 1 month stay. The location was the deciding factor in choosing this hotel. It is 5 minutes from the airport. It is located in a safe, gate guarded community. The rooms are spacious, clean, with amenities e.g. T.V., wi-fi, private bath, breakfast, and free airport transportation. Breakfast was good, and even though I did not get my wake up call, I made it because of the closeness to the airport, and I would stay here again. Breakfast is included, and you can call out for delivery of other meals. The hosts are nice, accommodating, and I felt comfortable here.

We stayed one night in this nice familiar hostel. Fernando, the owner, picked up us from the airport very punctual, he was really nice, helpful and easy going..
The room was big and clean, it had a terrace with nice view of the city...
One thing to count is that you cant cook... just keep some food in the fridge...
The breakfast was great! Very typical Guate!

Stayed here 5 nights this month. The husband & wife who own the property are delightful people who make you feel at home immediately. They serve a wonderful breakfast and always asked when we would like it depending on our schedule that day.
We took the bus to Copan, Honduras and Fernando delivered us at 4:30 am and picked us up at 7:00pm when we returned. He also ran us through a drive through to get some chicken for dinner that we took back to eat at the hotel. I would call that going beyond what is called for. Jeanette called & found out the bus schedule. He also picked us up at the airport when we arrived. No extra charge for any of this.
The negative is that it is located by the airport and if you don't have a car, it is not close to any place to eat. If you are a light sleeper, the plane noise prevent a good night's sleep.

The price is very reasonable, $43 USD for a double. They accept charge cards. Our room had a floor fan which was needed one night.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room.

First of all they will pick you up and drop you off to the airport.
Second of all they are super friendly.
They take a very good care of the house and the rooms.
It is only 2 min drive from the airport so excellent choice if you are just passing through Guatemala city and need a good access to the airport.
For sighseeing you should definitely consider something closer to the city center.

Oh...i think they have free internet but we din't have a chance to even try it as only stay there one night and it was a very short stay
