I just spent two wonderful weeks in Guatemala City. I stayed at this wonderful hotel close to the center of town. The price for the suite was surprisingly affordable. The hotel has a small pool, an excellent restaurant and a fabulous and very helpful staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Guatemala City.

We stayed one night. It is like stepping back to the forties and staying at a wealthy spinster's hotel. Cool furnishings. The room was comfortable. It is far enough off La Reforma to be quiet. Their staff try hard to please and succeed. Great bunch.

Looking for a good starting point for sites but staying in Guatemala City? This is your spot! Friendly, clean, safe, accessible. restaurants and bars are not close-but there is a tiny bodega around the corner and the staff is more than willing to help with anything you need. My advice is stock up on food and beer to save cash...

Spent some days on biz trip in Guatemala. Small luxury hotel with nice garden. Suggest to ask for an internal room to avoid noise of traffic. No gym ..could put something in the garden... Breakfast is fine. Will come back.

Centrally located in the middle of downtown Guatemala City and only minutes from the airport (and on the same block as the USA embassy), this boutique and luxury hotel is a gem. Built in a colonial style, this converted private residence is now a wonderful 20+ room/suite hotel. Beautifully decorated with spotless hard wood floors throughout, you will truly be...

The hotel is clean and the decor is very pleasant. Rooms come with a free breakfast and two free drinks. The hotel is very secure and there is a guard is on the gate to allow you in and out of the hotel. Very good value for money in a good location...

I spent three nights at the hotel, dined in the restaurant a number of times and everything was great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant provided an excellent variety of food and everything I had was of a very high standard. The rooms are lovely and everything is spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend San Carlos.
