This Zona Viva stay is perfect for both business and leisure travelers, with its light-filled rooms sporting brightly colored curtains and splashes of orange and blue. Make your way to the fifth floor for the outdoor swimming pool, solarium and fitness center, or head to the spa, which offers every kind of European-style pampering you could imagine (there’s even a Vichy shower). For dinner, guests can choose from four restaurants, including the sushi joint Tanoshii, the French-inspired bakery Saint Honoré and the deli-style Market.
In the Area
Get a real feel for the city with a visit to the nearby museums. You can admire the work of 20th-century talents like Alfredo Galvez Suarez, Julio Vasquez Urruela and Rodolfo Galeotti at the National Palace of Culture, a magnificent mashup of architectural styles from neoclassical to Guatemalan colonial. Then stop by the Anthropology Museum, which explores the history of the Maya. Tuck into a grilled steak with all the trimmings at El Portal del Angel, which also has knockout views of the city. Or book a table for two at Tamarindos, one of the hottest tables in town. The romantic, chicly furnished spot infuses a unique Guatemalan spirit into its Asian- and Italian-influenced menu, prepared by local chef Ricardo Zuniga.
How to Get There
Three day business trip to Guatemala City. This Hotel came highly recommended, and it lived up to all its expectations! Unfortunately I did not get a chance to taste all the ammenities, but the dining, entertainment, heated outdoor pool, and fittness center were all TOP NOTCH!
My best recommendation would be to
I booked my room through Hotels.com. I was offered an upgrade, I declined the offer as I wanted to keep the same price as the booking through Hotels.com. At time of check out I was charged for the upgrade fee and was dissapointed with the fact that no one wanted to fix the issue and remove the extra charge.
What a great experience!
The restautant is super comftable, breakfast was delicious, service was awesome. Thank you very much Veronica for being so kind and lovely.
I am looking forward to visit the restaurant again.
