Hotel Santo Tomas Chichicastenango Reviews
Charming hotel in the center of Chichicastenango Jul 21, 2009
This was my first time to stay in Hotel Santo Tomas. I will definitely return next year! Although it was simple, it was quite lovely. The bedrooms were large with 2 double beds, bathroom average, and the fireplace was an added bonus! On the chilly nights we were able to have a fire built for us, and that made it so cozy.
The dining area was large and the service was great. Breakfast was okay, but I'm not a big breakfast eater so I didn't partake. Others I was with enjoyed it. But the dinners-- Oh the dinners! Most enjoyable meal I've had in a while. Started off with soup (and every night it was fantastic!), then the entree that varied night to night, and followed with your choice of marvelous dessert. I left the table completely full every night.
Since Sunday is Market Day in Chichi, Hotel Santo Tomas has a huge buffett that is filled with all sorts of delishousness. Not only is the food wonderful, but they also have parrots in the courtyard and it is such a fun atmosphere.
Very welcoming and accomodating staff. 5 stars!!
**Disclaimer: the ONLY downside I encountered was the noise from the streets on the night before Market Day. Because the Market is such a big deal (the largest in Guatemala), the hustle and bustle starts early. I suggest bringing earplugs. But it is definitely worth the stay to experience the culture there.
