Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Santo Tomás
7 Av. 5–32, Chichicastenango, Quiché, 14006, Guatemala Fodor's Choice
Built in the Spanish style around a central courtyard, Hotel Santo Tomás is one of the town's best lodgings. Breezy passageways in which hundreds of plants spring from rustic clay pots lead past two trickling fountains. Spacious rooms are decorated with traditional textiles and antique reproductions. Each has a fireplace to warm you when the sun goes down. The back of the hotel is quieter, and has views of the surrounding countryside. The large restaurant ($$) is a quiet lunch refuge from the market cacophony.
- good restaurant
- mostly removed from market hubbub
- many visitors on market day compromise intimacy of hotel
