We had an excellent experience at La Coperacha. The room was comfortable, clean, safe and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Guatemala City.

We loved staying here. The guy who lives here, Lucien, is fantastic. He included us in his plans, took us to the market, the bus stop and is a very friendly guy.

“The private suite is excellent but if you are a Wi-Fi addict stay in the other rooms because it does not reach upstairs.”

“The suite is a great place-big bed, private bathroom, and privacy in general. All the other rooms are the best value that I have saw in all of the capital cities in Central America. You cannot go wrong in this place.”
