This is one of the two rooms that I offer in my pretty apartment in the city centre of Quetzaltenango (Xela). The house is located on the third floor of a building just two blocks from the central park. The room is big with a double bed, a big closet, a couch, a desk and a balcony. The apartment has a kitchen, living room, tv, hot shower and a beautiful view of Xela. There's also free wifi, coffee and tea. You are very welcome!

The space

I offer you a home away from home in my beautiful apartment, right in the historic city centre of Quetzaltenango (Xela).

You will be staying in a cozy bedroom with a double bed, a big closet, a couch, a desk and free WIFI.

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 is 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.

Guest access

LIVING/DINING ROOM. The main space of the house is a large living/dining room. There are comfortable sofas and a TV. In the same central room there is a big dining table. There is plenty of space to read a book, listen to music or plan your trips.

BATHROOM. There is 1 bathroom with a toilet and an electric shower with hot water. You share this bathroom with me and maybe one or two other guests.

KITCHEN. Guests are welcome to use the well equipped kitchen. It has a big stove, a refrigerator, a microwave and all the pots and pans for you to use.

FREE. There is free WIFI, coffee, tea and drinking water.

PARKING. There are different parking possibilities available nearby at a small extra cost.

Interaction with guests

I enjoy interacting with guests but I am also fine if you are independent and make your own plans. Most of the time I am around to answer questions or give travel advice, but there also are maps, tourist information and guide books in the house. If you want to, I can give you a tour through Xela, we could have dinner together or go for some drinks in one of the local bars.

Other things to note

The apartment is located on the corner of an important street of the city centre. This means that there is some traffic noise, also during the night.

At the moment there is some construction work going on, on the first floor of the building. So during the day there might be some construction noise.

This is an excellent value for a whole apartment. It's cozy and cute, just a few blocks away from the parque central. Cable TV, fast Wi-fi, purified water, and a comfortable bed. The other apartments in the building are occupied by locals, along with a couple of friendly cats. I would be a little cautious in the immediate area after around 9 or 10 pm, but that's true for most places anyway. Thank you Rosita for all your help and suggestions!

Great host with love to details (map of the city, earplugs, sweets ready for you when you arrive) and a great room with a wonderful view over the city. We really enjoyed the balcony! The location of the apartment is also good, close to the central park. It was perfect for the 2 nights we stayed in Xela.

Rosita was great with her fast responses to arrange details for me to stay with her. The apartment is in a great location near Parque Central. It's a spacous apartment and my room was comfortable and large. I was able to use the kitchen for cooking and like everything about the apartment. I would highly recommend renting a room with Rosita.

Our stay with Rosita was lovely! She was easy to communicate with from the start and continued to help us during our stay - she was always around to help. The apartment was really clean, comfy and welcoming, it was a pleasure to stay there. Our room had fantastic views - the best place to wake up in the morning!!! Gracias Rosita!

The apt was really clean and really well organized for a guest. It is in a great location and Rosita a very friendly and knowledge host. The room has spectacular views and very comfortable bed, etc. The only draw back is that the room is on a corner and because of the windows it is noisy at night from the traffic. I am a light sleeper and had major trouble sleeping. If you are a heavy sleeper, it should not be a problem.

Hi! I am Rosita, a Dutch girl living in Xela (Quetzaltenango) for about two and a half years now. I like to meet new people, try different kinds of food and go out for a drink or a dance. The apartment has two extra bedrooms that I rent, so that I can share this beautiful place with you guys. I also have a small private appartment for rent. For any questions or doubts just send me a message! Saludos, Rosita
