  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Fits the need.

    I arrived late at night and was picked up at the airport promptly after I called them. I stayed in a 4 bed room by myself. It was clean, quite and just what I needed after a 12 hour flight. I plan to stay here on my return.

    Great place before your flight

    I needed a place to stay before my early flight out of Guatemala City. This was a perfect choice, very close to the airport, free shuttle, and reasonable. The family running it was wonderful, although my interaction was limited to check in and then the morning shuttle.
