ACCOMMODATIONS
Guatemalan accommodations range from
luxury hotels to budget hotels to ultrabudget guesthouses called hospedajes, casas
de huéspedes or pensiones.
This book’s budget category covers places
where a typical double costs US$20 or less.
Doubles under US$10 are generally small,
dark and not particularly clean. Security may
not be the best in such places. An exception is the low-priced dormitories that exist
alongside other rooms in generally better
establishments. A US$20 double should be
clean, sizable and airy, with a bathroom, TV
and, in hot parts of the country, a fan.

Midrange covers establishments with doubles between US$20 and US$50. These rooms
are always comfortable: private hot-water
bathroom, TV, decent beds, fan and/or aircon are standard. Good midrange hotels have
attractive public areas such as dining rooms,
bars and swimming pools. In hot regions, the
rooms may be attractive wooden bungalows,
with thatch roofs, verandas and hammocks;
in cooler areas they may be in beautiful old
colonial-style houses with antique furnishings and lovely patios. The smaller the establishment, the better the attention to guests
is likely to be. Many B&Bs in Guatemala fit
this description.
Anything more expensive than US$50 is
top end. Guatemala City’s international-class
business-oriented hotels, Antigua’s very finest hostelries, and a few resort hotels elsewhere constitute nearly the whole of the top
end options.
Room rates often go up in places tourists
go during Semana Santa (the week leading
up to Easter Sunday), Christmas–New Year
and July and August. Semana Santa is the
major Guatemalan holiday week of the year,
and prices can rise by anything from 30% to
100% on the coast and in the countryside –
anywhere Guatemalans go to relax – as well
as in international-tourism destinations such
as Antigua. At this time advance reservations
are a very good idea. We indicate throughout

Be aware that room rates are subject to two
large taxes – 12% IVA (value-added tax) and
10% to pay for the activities of the Guatemalan
Tourism Institute (Inguat). All prices in this
book include both taxes. Some of the more
