Located in a quiet cobblestone street in the heart of Antigua, Guatemala and just a 5 minute walk from the Parque Central, the Good Hotel is so much more than its prime location. The Good Hotel Group is redefining hospitality and travel. With the mission to use their business for good, the hotel connects travelers directly with the local community. Offering a premier hotel experience with a direct giveback.
Upon arrival, you might walk into their lobby and stubble upon an ESL class. As you proceed to check-in you will be greeted by a multi-lingual staff member. The decor might exude an international modern feel, but the staff are primarily Guatemalan. Once you arrive to your room, you might notice that each one has a distinct name on the outside of the door and inside you will be welcomed with a student portrait.
This is all part of their community efforts and social impact. For one, 100% of the proceeds from their hotel is reinvested right into the community. Their unique business model provides a training program to unemployed locals and single moms. And you are most likely going meet some of them while staying there!
Even more so, for every direct booking made at the Good Hotel, they donate $5 per night of your stay, to their charity partner, Niños de Guatemala. This non-profit provides underprivileged children with a high-quality education. Niños de Guatemala runs two primary schools and a secondary school which house over 500 Guatemalan children that would otherwise not have been able to go to school. Each room is named after a scholarship recipient and their portrait hangs inside.
With impeccable decor, healthy menu, and remarkable staff, the Good Hotel should be your first choice when visiting the famous city of Antigua, Guatemala. The entire essence of the hotel is in its perfect blend of high-end hospitality with local stories and culture.
