Looking for a treat in Guatemala? This is a stylish boutique hotel which all manner of presidents and dignitaries have enjoyed, hidden behind high brick walls and accessed (only when expected), via a flower trimmed, stone-flagged courtyard.
The building is pleasingly old, yet seamlessly combines modern features such as the long narrow pool which flows next to its shadowy inner corridors and colonial courtyards.
This hotel exudes elegance and luxury; the deeply fragranced bouquets strategically placed along its narrow open air corridors, the tall church candles casting dusky shadows along the glowing stone walls; the deep, soft bedding and large, airy bathrooms. Follow the winding flagstone staircase to discover the large roof terrace with terracotta pots, multi-coloured scatter cushions and far ranging views across the rooftops and towards the horizon hugging mountains. The city itself is architecturally stunning and historically rich. Restaurants hide thickly lush courtyards and soothing water features. And once you’ve enjoyed the fresh and spicy local specialities you can wander in the heat amongst the echoing churches, leafy plazas and challenging viewpoints knowing the cool and soothing tranquillity of the Posada del Angel awaits.
