Casa de Don Ismael is a nice basic little hotel tucked on a quiet side street. The location is really perfect as it is off the bustle of the street but a very short walk to central park.
The free breakfast was great, freshly cooked for us each morning (we always had pancakes, but there was also eggs and beans, and cereal).
The central little courtyard was cute, and the whole hotel was interestingly decorated with lots of local religious art. Every night candles were lit. Beautiful.
Every day our room was thoroughly cleaned, leaving it fresh smelling.
The only major downside was no screens on our window, which meant at night we either were very hot (even though it was nice and cool outside) or we got eaten by mosquitos.

FYI We asked Luis the owner where Don Ismael was. He said the hotel was named after a man long dead. So Lonely Planet and everyone else who said this hotel is run by Ismael, probabaly not.

The people were great and very helpful in figuring out how to get there from Guatemala City. The room was nice. Not luxury, but wonderful for the price. We had a room with a private bathroom and hot water. It was also very central to the main parque, which was nice. Since it was at the end of the street, it was not too noisy. The breakfast was also good, and there is a nice patio upstairs! The only issue was that the walls are thin, so when there were people in the room next door, it was hard to sleep.

I really liked this hotel. The location is great, only 3 blocks from the central park. The owners are extremely nice and helpful, and they always greet you with a smile. Breakfast is included and is good too. There are a lot of beautiful plants and flowers and hummingbirds. At night, the place is lit up with candles. The bathrooms are cleaned I don't know how many times a day but the toilet paper always had a little decoration-shape every time I use it!

The only thing is that it's pretty expensive compared to a lot of places that I saw signs for, but I didn't see the rooms so I can't really compare. The rooms are not particularly nice, but they are clean.

If you want to be treated nicely and stay at a quiet little place, I would recommend it!

Among the affordable places, this one is very lovely. The staff are super kind, their garden courtyard romantic and cozy. Breakfast is included and the place is very secure and quiet compared to others. It gets a little cold!

Arriving at night, I found my room really dark, small and dingy. The dead end street was kind of creepy as well. The worst part of my one night stay was the noise. A drunk man yelling from yard of the people that lived next door and then as he quieted down the guys who were staying next door sat in the patio chatting which was like an echo chamber into my room.When they finally moved inside next door it was not much better. The next morning I moved to Casa Cristina which was a few dollars more, but sooo much nicer.. light. bright and pretty.. no comparison. A relief.
