Guatemala City is the largest and most metropolitan city in Guatemala. While it’s doubtful that travelers will spend much time here, there are some attractive areas to explore. Zona Viva has good restaurants, shops and bars, and there is a burgeoning art scene in Cuatro Grados Norte. There are also museums and historical sights to visit in the Centro Histórico in Zona 1.
Posada Belen is located on a quiet street near the historical center of Guatemala City, about 3 miles north of the La Aurora International Airport. The same family has run this hotel since it opened in 1972. With only 10 rooms and a super friendly staff, Posada Belen feels homey and intimate.
The hotel’s interior is pleasantly decorated. There are over 300 authentic registered Mayan artifacts on display, as well a number of unique handicrafts and paintings. The hotel has a small courtyard with chairs, hammocks, tropical plants and a small fountain. It’s a nice place to read or enjoy a cup of coffee.
The rooms are clean and simple. They have private bathrooms and hot water showers heated by solar panels. All rooms have bedside lamps, writing desks, stationary fans, a safety deposit box, and access to free wireless Internet. The beds have orthopedic mattresses and the rooms can sleep up to three people.
