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
The rooms looks very good and you feel very comfortable in it. The location is very close to the business center of the city. The services around the hotel (taxi, restaurants, etc) worked very well and the employees of the hotel tried to help you everytime
Just stayed one night on our way to Antigua. We arrived at about 11pm, complimentary hotel shuttle picked us up which was easy to find and right on time. Room was so comfortable. Service was great. Good location, within a block or two of a small shopping mall and about 5 blocks from Oakland mall where you can get lost for a few hours. Would recommend!
Extremely nice hotel, just 20 minutes (depending on traffic) from airport. Free airport shuttle. Located in good area and within walking distance (15-20 min) of Av La Reforma, restaurants, and business district. Our room on the Rewards floor had 2 TVs, one in the bedroom and one in a living area "L". Views of the city but honestly, not much to see.
Every time we visit Guatemala we stay in this beautiful place.
Every one in this hotel is very friendly and they will give you the best service that is.
I will be staying here once again the beginning of next year
I went to Guatemala city for a wedding and stayed at Hotel InterContinental. It was a great decision because of the staff, very helpful and kind. I loved the bedding. Super confortable beds and pillows. Delicious variety for a delicious breakfast.
Also, they have a parking area if you get by car. I super recommend this hotel.
