My stylish apartment, only 2 blocks from Central Park, is a perfect starting point for exploring Xela. With my mix of thrifted treasures and new pieces I tried to create a modern vintage space where my guests feel at home. The huge windows provide a lot of daylight and amazing views. The room is spacious with a comfy double bed, a large closet, loungy armhairs and a little desk. You share the fully equipped kitchen, living room and bathroom. There's fast Wifi and free coffee and tea.

The room is clean with fresh bed linen, towels, soap, shampoo and tourist information. From the room you have a beautiful view of the Cathedral and the mountains surrounding Xela. This room also has a small balcony. So in case you smoke, you can do it there.

You can also use the spacious living/dining room and fully equipped kitchen with free drinking water, coffee and tea. The bathroom is shared with me and maybe one or two other guests.

The bright and homely apartment is located on the third floor in a building on a central street, just two blocks from the Central Park. It's close to restaurants, (super)markets, Spanish schools, shopping and nightlife.

You will get your own key upon arrival, so you can come in and leave whenever you want.

Location

Quezaltenango, Quetzaltenango, Guatemala

The apartment has a fantastic location in the middle of the Historic City Centre, with many bars, restaurants, the Central Park and excellent transport links to rest of the city and to the terminal from where you can travel the rest of Guatemala.

Zone 1 is Xela’s most historical, vibrant, fun and interesting district. It has a lot of bars, restaurants and cafes and also has some interesting buildings and a small national history museum.

All within walking distance of the apartment:
-The Central Park: A well maintained park surrounded by neoclassical buildings like the municipal palace, the bank and the house of culture. Here you will find young love couples, street vendors and shoe shiners hanging around.
-Pasaje Enriquez: A fancy antique shopping hall with Italian paintings that now hosts restaurants, bars and tourist offices.
-Cathedral of the Holy Spirit: The Cathedral has two facades: one with an old colonial style and one with a more straight, symmetrical and modern look.
-National History Museum: A small museum with pre-Columbian ceramics, photos, and stuffed animals. It’s worth taking a visit for the fee of only a few Quetzales and because they have a quetzal, the national bird, on display.
-Casa Noj: expositions and art
-Cerro el Baul: beautiful natural area with a great view over the city.
-The Cementary: one of the oldest cementeries of Guatemala with spectacular graves, like pyramids, Greek structures and decapitated angels.
-Bars with live music

Xela is a great base to discover western highland towns and villages, go to the ‘Fuentes Georginas’ Hot Springs or climb a volcano.

Once a month there is artisanal market in the central park. There is a small market nearby where you can buy fresh fruits, vegetables and meat every day from 08:00 until 17:00. The big Democracia Market is a 15 min. walk from the apartment and there you can really find anything you want.

There are a number of art galleries in the area and a lot of cafes to hang out.

The Historic centre of Xela is a very nice mix of colonial and neoclassic architecture. Xela is famous for the Spanish language schools and opportunities to do some voluntary work at one of the many NGO's.

If you have never been to Guatemala, this is the perfect base to explore Guatemala’s beauty. Xela has great places for night life and of course the historical Parque Central and landmarks. Guatemala City is about 200 kilometers from Quetzaltenango. There are lots of nearby buses that will take you to Fuentes Georginas, Laguna de Chicabal, Atitlán, Chichicastenango, nearby beaches, and Antigua.

During your stay
Most of the time I am around the house, so I am available to answer questions, give you some insider tips or book you a tour or shuttle. If you're independent and make your own plans, that's also fine :). On arrival I'll give you a map and some basic information and I am also always available by whatsapp if you need me.
