Fodor's Expert Review Mayan Inn
3 Av. at 8 Calle, behind El Calvario church, Chichicastenango, Quiché, 14006, Guatemala
Long regarded as Chichicastenango's "second hotel" (after the Santo Tomás), the Mayan Inn was actually the first lodging to set up shop here. (It dates from the 1930s, and is one of the country's best-known hotels.) Rooms have corner fireplaces, and surround a series of beautifully maintained garden courtyards. Most have wide windows overlooking the pine-covered hills. The service is as impeccable as always—an attendant in traditional costume is assigned to each room.
- close to market, attentive service
- room doors lock only from inside (but are guarded by attendant when you're out of room)
