I have nothing bad to say about the hotel.
This went well during my stay.
The restaurants were a different story.
The Italian restaurant had dinner there one night. I won't or didn't go back.
The Cafe was very good for breakfast but bad for dinner.
These two restaurant share the same kitchen.
Pickup at the airport took 1/2 hour.

I changed the room 3 times. First room smells like somebody else smoke, 2 room the air conditioner does not working properly and 3 room was OK but the toilet was damaged making some sound during the night.
In general horrible experience.

Very comfortable bed and clean rooms. Breakfast and Happy Hour service at Club Floor is regular. Breakfast to crowded and not sufficient food, Happy Hour food is not always ready, interest of attending staff is limited to give good service. Excelente food at Picasso Restaurant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DVCH Excellent service
I value good service in a hotel when people is kind, when they demostrate interest in your wellbeing, very friendly. This is the case of this hotel. (bellboys, concierge, shuttle driver, front desk personnel, restaurant personnel)
The service at front desk was also very good
Food is excellent, specially at Tanoshi Rest.
Rooms are very comfortable and nice.
Excellent for business
taxi drives at the hotel are so kind
You feel at home! Thanks

Very good hotel, with a lot of facilities, room was very nice with comfortable bed... However Lighting bulbs in cool daylight aren't nice for a room... If you want to work it's ok, but for the table lamps the bulbs have to be warm light....
Problem with cable system during 3 nights

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PaulMBK Very Bad Service
I can say that it's the worst Intercontinental hotel i have stayed in; very expensive internet service, very bad conexion, worst service i get in my stay.
the only good people that i met in this hotel was the bell boys.
Hope that you can get a look on what you have as a hotel and what service are you offering because 2 star is too much for the hotel.
Having the room clean at 5 PM no internet service, very bad room service, noise in the rooms, etc,

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Virgilio Dark Rooms, White lights, terrible shower
Rooms are dark and bad lighted, they use saving bulbs, which I appreciate an respect, but they are dead white, it feels like a surgery room.
Carpets are old and full of stains.
Shower was probably good when it was brand new, but minerals in water clog the holes and you get water every were except were you need it.
Finally I couldn't understand how they manage the status. "Yes you have diamond status but in order to have access to the executive launch you have to reserve an executive room..."

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marlon37 Hotel without WiFi in every room
This was the second time that I had to ask for a change of room because the room that was assigned to me did not have enough WiFi coverage; they gave another room that did have proper wifi coverage but did not have shampoo in the bathroom.
For the price that is charged, I am sure that I can find a Hotel with better service.
I hope this was the last time that I use this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JFCH BAD RESERVATION INFORMATION
When I did my reservation I was told there was not standard room available so if I wanted to stay I had to take a better room, higher price of course. I asked permission to my company and did so. I am an Ambassador member, so and upgrade was offered (no matter what room I was to take, always an up graded it's been received).
When arrived at hotel to my surprise I was placed in a normal room (they said there were none) and paying higher rate. I called immediately the General Manager and it took more than 2 hours to solve the problem.
I felt cheated because there were no standards rooms, latter I am place in a standard room with higher fare and not upgraded to higher room. Only access to executive floor
It was not my best experience in this hotel this time.
And again I felt deceived.
Things took time to be arranged and I paid for a standard upgraded to a better room, like I was supposed since the beginning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tomy54 Great place to stay in Guatemala City
I have stayed here 4 times within the last two years., The rooms are very comfortable and quite. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the Sunday breakfast buffet was included in my room price and was very extensive and good. Service overall is excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pattye2013 my stay
when i am traveling to Guatemala, the Intercontinental Hotel is my place to stay for various reasons, i feel like home, is close to my office and close to my family (very well located)
the only problem i experienced during my stay this time, was that due to many events, i was not able to have breakfast 2 times in the hotel. long lines of people waiting (sometimes over 15 min), and service becomes pretty slow.
i wanted to congratulate the hotel, for the new restaurant, (is like a tratoria) is excellent, and the people that host there is excellent.
i love this place...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 925oops Deficient service
Room appearance was not good --carpet stained and unclean. Toiletries were not placed daily (had to request shampoo at 4th day of my stay). Heater was not working, only AC.
Breakfast was very good but menu choices for lunch are limited and overpriced!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andrzej Poor service.
Did not receive ANY of the regular Ambassador Club bonuses: the regular upgrade was not offered "due to the renovation" works, the water and fruite basket offered first after my complaint by telephone in the morning of my departure.
By check-in procedures three friendly but not properly prepared trainees.
Second out of two reserved rooms had to be changed as somebody used the bed.
The manager on duty after my complaints sent me through the reception desk staff a small calendar??? Never apologized for the poor service.
Alltogether a very bad experience, will never used this hotel again while in Guatemala City.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DC1956 A Businessman's Business Spot
I've been coming to the Real Guatemala City for the past 10 years...
First time I've been offered to write a review....
Located in the central hotel district, the IC is a dominant landmark for the business traveller.
The rooms are spacious, decor classic IC, and the room staff keeps them impecible.. Down stairs, the reception manager and his staff get you in and out quickly and the door staff are attentive to your luggage and service needs.
The inside restaurants are fantastic....the Taisho Sushi is very good and the Cafe Paix has some of the best bread and croissants in all of Latin America. Room service is usually quick and the staff accomodating to any special needs.
I highly recommend the IC as you can walk to some local favorite restaurants - Donde Mikel's (great grilled meat and shrimp) and across the street is a great Peruvian place for Ceviche - just ask the door man..it's about 50 meters....a great place to bring back an appetizer to munch on in your room before dinner :)
The manager, Pierre is always on the floor, greets many guest personally.....if you need something, he's only a phone call away.
Overall....a definately place to see.....

The first 2 rooms assigned were not ready when I can in to them, and they told me that the system indicated that those rooms were ready.
On previous visits, the shuttle had let me at the airport even when I call previously to announce my arrival.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CABiz3 Staff need to step it up
I had problems at check-in, I ordered breakfast but got the wrong dishes both days. The staff is nice, but they need to be more on top of things.
Also, there was a large amount of noise coming from a neighboring room one of the nights. It took security quite a while to deal with it.

The entire hotel staff was outstanding in detail and attention to my needs. From moment of check in to departure. From house cleaning to bell man. Strongly reccomend this hotel to my traveling friends.
My only extremely small complaint is the breakfast area is to small. Needed to get up a little earlier or later to get a table. But staff was outstanding. (Bravo)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dimal007 Horrible stay and horrible room
The worse stay ever! i got the most noisy room at the hotel, and they did not accepted to change it. it was near to the elevator peer so i could hear all the time (from 5am) the elevators working non stop.
the club floor (which i was paying an extra money for it) was closed for two days out of the complete stay.
