A great place to spend a day or two in Guatemala
The hotel is very well located, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the corner rooms are spacious. The live entertainment in the restaurant is a must, and the service is excellent while the food is ok.

Tropical oasis in the middle of the city
It's right in the city and can be a little ugly outside at night with shutters on shop windows, fine during the day though. Inside the hotel is an oasis, the breakfast area was like a tropical jungle. Great place to stay and I would stay again.
