This hotel is actually pretty nice and in a very good location in the second largest city of Guatemala I had a suite with a comfortable king bed at a very reasonable price However the place is very noisy, the room was cold and the water from the shower did not drain even after overnight stay

This is a beautiful, old hotel, centrally located. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and clean. The hotel staff was attentive and friendly. Almost no one spoke English. The food was good for both breakfast and dinner. Would highly recommend staying in this lovely place.

Located right in the center of Quetzaltenango, this hotel offers the most comfortable stay in the city. Originally built more than 75 years ago, it has been renovated adequately in order to preserve its antique essence but still adapt to modern standards.

Good hotel, centrally located next to Quetzaltenango's big square, with large and spotless rooms. A bit past its prime, but nice all the same. A shame that the swimming pool was not heated - it can't be used in summer. Decent service, breakfast was OK.

The Bonifaz has always been the better hotel in Xela and has been kept up with. The rooms have internal windows and you can hear everything going on here though. I like softer bedding and the beds are rock hard...even the pillows. If that is not an issue for you then everything else is great. Nice restaurant, center of town...

The service, cleanliness, and quality were similar to the excellent customer service standards from the 50s. Everyone was well dressed, nice, and the entire property was spotless. I loved getting up everyone morning to a white glove style breakfast and having water waiting in the room. I'm from the US and stay in top quality hotels weekly. This stay just...

The Pensión Bonifaz has two features to recommend it: an excellent location on a corner of Xela's main square, and a staff that really tries hard to please despite the challenges. That said, here's the distilled essence: although the public spaces are charming, the rooms are awful. Do not stay here unless you are promised, in writing, a room either...

The hotel is a classic in the Xela, they've been there for over 100 years. They have an amazing location, pretty good parking space, the rooms are a bit weird, but they've been recently renovated. Their sunday brunch is amazing, a big buffet of delicious breakfast food. They are THE PLACE to have a party in Xela, so expect noise...

Hotel is ok, clean and enough, nothing fancy. The size and details as a colonial building are great, but the main problem was noise; extremely noisy with sounds, music and lots of people walking around. Hair dryer was not working and they didn't replace it. There is no air conditioning in the room and although outside the temperature was cool,...

“choose a room in the back of the hotel not in the front”
 of 5 bubbles Terrie113, 23 Oct 2016 | Read review
“Choose a room overlooking the plaza or facing the side street (there is only one).”
  • Fake flowers.
  • Chained remote.
  • Room: window opens to patio belonging to another room. So much for privacy!
  • Why bother.
