Cute old style hacienda in centro. Parking nearby. We had a minor medical issue and they immediately called a doctor at no charge as ey have insurance. Otherwise great place. Love the hummingbirds in the flower garden.

It was hard to find a hotel there did not seem to be many in Xela. This hotel was only average. We could not get hot water in the shower. The staff were very helpful and made sure we got the transportation we needed for a 6 am departure, all with us not speaking any Spanish!

Breakfast is included and fabulous! Lots of fresh fruit. The location is good,...

I stayed here with a friend for two nights, we had a spacious room with antique furniture and very comfortable beds and a bathroom with the hottest water in Guatemala so far! The staff were very helpful assisting us in making reservations for our onward journey. We only ate breakfast here which was very good.

Excellent stuff. Absolutely adorable spacious rooms with antique-style wooden furniture, thick walls, high ceilings, and blooming patios reminded us of old times prosperous colonial houses. Rooms have coffee makers with coffee of their own roast (at least, it tasted like that). Plentiful breakfast feeds the joy of staying there. Very recommended!

I'm not giving four stars simply because the shower had no water. Now I can handle cold showers, but I want to pay cold-shower prices for that kind of place. I told the woman at the front desk and she said she'd look into it, but that didn't change the temperature of the shower. I was able to use a...
