Fodor's Review

You enter this stately hotel through iron gates, then step into a small reception area that leads to a comfortable lounge with a fireplace to keep out the chill. The restaurant spills out into the courtyard; its cast-iron chairs are surrounded by arches covered with dangling philodendrons. Traditional tile floors grace the rooms, which are furnished with antiques. Rooms in the front open onto a balcony, but those in the back are quieter.

The Big House

This is an old style hotel with rooms surrounding the courtyard on two floors. It really feels like colonial Guatemala instead of a transplanted US chain hotel. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The managers, Freddie and Gloria, are a husband and wife team that divide their waking hours at the front desk. Like many of the hotels in Zones 9 and 10, Casa Grande caters to foreign families adopting children in Guatemala. It is adjacent to

the U.S. Embassy making it convenient for families waiting for visas to be processed. The restaurant food is good but simple. Try the fried chicken for dinner and eggs, black beans and queso fresco for breakfast.
