I just returned from Honduras, where I spent two nights at Humuya Inn in Tegucigalpa before heading to Western Honduras. From the very first email I sent to the owner to my checkout on the last day, I received an incredibly high level of service and hospitality. They helped arrange airport pickup, drivers to and from various places in Tegus where I had work to do, and a driver to Valle de Angeles for some afternoon fun. We felt incredibly safe and well taken care of. Every staff member we encountered was not only courteous and accommodating, but remembered us and our plans and called us by name. One example of how they went out of their way for us: when I needed to break a large bill from the ATM, the clerk took it to a friend at a nearby store and delivered the smaller bills to my room.
We had two breakfasts and one dinner at Humuya, and the food was good and the courtyard setting was very relaxing. The room itself was pleasant and clean and fairly large. There were only a few minor things that I might change: 1) we stayed inside at night because we were tired from working and not up to navigating Tegus at night, and we would have loved having a drink in the courtyard, but there is no bar. 2) the curtains were a little bit worn, but in general the room was in good shape. 3) I couldn't make the hair dryer work the first morning, but since I'd brought a travel hairdryer, used my own rather than calling the front desk. I think it would have been addressed immediately, though, because our only other problem was quickly taken care of. In that case, we woke up one morning to no running water, and immediately called the front desk. We had breakfast right then, and when we returned to our room, they had resolved the problem (and even called up to make sure we were all set.)
Other perks, in addition to the fabulous staff and pleasant physical space, was a computer with free internet (that we noticed on our way out), in-room phones with simple international dialing, cable movies (which was nice since we spent both our nights inside hanging out), an appealing common area on the first and second floors complete with a selection of books in english and Honduras tourism publications and english-language Honduran paper.
I would definitely go back to Humuya if I return to Tegus, and highly recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At last - a rare hotel in the Honduran capital that gives reviewers a chance to gush. It's a triumph for good taste, both in the well-appointed guest rooms and long-stay apartments, all set in a quiet residential neighborhood.Once a spacious Tegucigalpa home, this keeps the trappings of a comfortable family residence with the trimmings needed for modern business travel. It's a beacon of class and courteous service in Tegucigalpa. Rooms in the colonial-style house have been lovingly furnished in Honduran mahogany and decorated with striking Lencan pottery and photos of the country's charms. From the Italian ceramic floor tiles up to the vaulted ceiling, it creates an ambience where you're happy to dally - unsurprisingly, there are many long-term stays. The focal point is a lush patio where lychee and mango trees shade diners taking the complementary breakfast buffet. Climb to a fourth-floor terrace for a 360-degree panorama over Tegucigalpa's sloping sprawl. ... more less
