I was here in "Xela" a couple of weeks ago. Although not as obviously beautiful as Antigua, Xela feels much more like a typical Guatemalan city. There is much beauty here but you may have to dig around a bit more to find it. I love trekking and cycling so I decided to stay here for about 5 days to...

Casa Dona Mercedes has big bright comfy rooms - upstairs have private bathrooms - and is run by a wonderful helpful woman (Michelle). There is drinking water and a kitchen fully stocked with all everything you need for cooking, and a bright sitting area and dining area off the lobby. A single room with private bath was Q170 (US $22.00)....

Some have private baths and some have shared baths. All are impeccably clean. The owner Michele and her son Rodrigo are delightul people. The only down side...

This hostel is pricy compared to similar lodgings in the area, but we thought it was worth the extra money. Our room was big and clean with en-suite bathroom. This is actually the second hostel we looked at - the first we saw (ranked second on TripAdvisor) simply could not compare as far as basic facilities were concerned. The only...

This place represented the best value for money on my whole trip to Guatemala. Single rooms with shared bath cost 90Q per night and rooms with private bath are (I think) 170Q. There is TV in the rooms, fast wifi, a guest kitchen, hot showers, a nice inside patio area downstairs and an upstairs terrace. All within 2 blocks of the Central Park!!...

This hotel is cear the center of town, has nice rooms, a roofdeck, and in general a very nice place. The King and Queen is my favorite bar in town and just around the corner along with laundry service and the center of town just a few blocks away. Highly recommended.

From our experience in June '09, here are a few things to consider if you plan to stay at Casa Dona Mercedes: Cleanliness: Fleas or bedbugs in the mattresses of our room gave us little itchy bites. We were too embarrassed to mention this, but fyi, our room was upstairs across from the laundry room. Price: We paid US$55 (prices...
