Peaceful oasis in a big city
This place was a pleasant surprise, much better than we expected. It was rather quiet and peaceful except for the street noise, and we loved the little courtyard. The staff provided exceptional service.

6/10 Good

Las personas que trabajan hacen su mejor esfuerzo para que los huespedes tengan una estacia adecuada, y el lugar es hasta agradable y tienes la posibilidad de ver e interactuar con viajeros guatemaltecos, sin embargo, la calidad de las instalaciones, la limpieza, la conexion a WiFi, etc. no me harian regresar. Creo que por un poco mas de dinero o lo mismo, se consiguen mejores opciones.
