We stayed 2 nights in Hotel Ciudad Vieja. We were in room 108 on the ground floor. The room had 2 double beds, TV, phone, 1 hard chair and table, another chair by the "desk" (see pictures), and 2 lounge chairs. There was not much light in the room. Most came from lighting near the ceiling, that went around the walls. The bed was rather hard, and it had a fluffy blanket (comforter), which I don't like. The bathroom had a shower only. The hotel is nothing to look at on the outside, but in true Spanish style, there are courtyards and a very lovely setting inside. The staff were all friendly, and even though some struggled with English, they were speaking more English, that I was Spanish, so I'm not going to complain. We ate all our meals here, and they were good. It was a surprise to get a complementary cup of soup with our meals. But the included breakfast (which they give you a ticket for) was quite good. They made a special small breakfast for me, when we asked for it, as I was going on a tour that picked up at the hotel between 4:30 and 4:45 AM. Another interesting thing about this hotel was that our car was parked out front, in their parking lot. But they notified us later in the day, that I had to move the car to their fenced in parking lot in back. Apparently safety is taken seriously at this hotel. We would stay here again.

I’ve been there two days ago for a one day visit of Ciudad de Guatemala (which I recommend!) two days ago. Very nice place with welcoming people. It is quite close to the airport, a 20 minutes bus ride from the center in a nice residential neighborhood. The tropical garden is very relaxing and beautiful, the room was okay, maybe a bit on the dark side because it was ground floor, but nicely set up in a traditional way. The restaurant could offer more vegetarian options, but all we had was good. I recommend and would come back!

This was the perfect hotel for a one night stay after arriving in Guatemala City. The hotel is quaint and clean and the staff helpful. We will stay here again when we have a night or two in Guatemala City.

The staff are very friendly. This hotel is in an odd location in a residential area close to the business district. More importantly it is a 15 minute drive to the airport. The rooms could use some sprucing up such as new new curtains and a bit more color. A good alternative for those who want to be near the airport but want something different than the standard hotel chains.

In Zone 10, but away from all the chain hotels. Rooms were lovely- nice sheets and firm bed. Lots of terraces and lookouts. Included a breakfast and easy walk to the tourist restaurants, but locals food carts were nearby

We stayed one night at this quiet hotel in the ritzy area of Guatemala City. It's a on a quiet street in the airport area. Very safe and around lots of rizty shops, malls and restaurants. They were very nice when we arrived and because we were leaving very early in the morning, they set up a coffee maker and some simple bread and muffins for us specifically to have before we left at 5:00am. Room was decent sized, clean and fresh. The rooms are off a nice courtyard and were quiet all night. This seemed to be the least expensive hotel in the area which includes some of the biggest fanciest chains. We walked to the Oakland Mall from the hotel. A huge fancy mall with all the western stores and then some super ritzy stores. It's big and bright and has some decent food options. Around the area is a lot of shops and restaurants - although they are fairly high priced - not just for Guatemala, but for anywhere. They arranged a taxi for us to the airport early in the morning and it was very reasonably priced. Overall a pleasant stay with above average service at a very reasonable price.

This hotel is a find! Room108 was very clean, had two double beds, ample ceiling, floor, and night table lighting. Hot water takes a few minutes to come on. Staff are friendly and helpful. Most speak English ranging from excellent to minimal. Hotel has lots of plants in the courtyard and does feel like an oasis. The dinner we had in the restaurant consisted of very freshly prepared pesto pasta and a club sandwich and a Caesar salad. A nice touch was the complementary small cup of soup served. Prices for the hotel and the restaurant are quite reasonable. Definitely recommend this place especially if travelling to the airport.

This is a very sweet small and super safe hotel and is like an oasis in Guatemala City. It is very clean with a nice little restaurant and lots of personal attention. Our room was very clean with super comfortable beds. I rarely jump to a four because most hotels and restaurants end up being pretty much average with their strengths and their weaknesses but it was easy to give this hotel a 4.

This is a small, familiar place, with nice gardens and an good old Guatemalan ambience rooms... service personnel really makes the effort to attend your needs and if you don’t have high expectations they usually succeed. however, f the nature of your trip is business, I would not suggest to stay here. The rooms have not lights in the ceiling, so they are very dark, WiFi quality is very poor and there are not enough power outlets. They have not gym, and bathroom seats are the size of a kid. I’m very convinced that we need to favor small businesses for our economies to grow, but I’m also convinced that the owners of small businesses need to be aware of their improvement areas so they can make their business flourish. They have a responsibility to their customers and employees. Having said that, I wouldn’t return on a business trip.
