• Hotel Panamerican

    ServiceIn 1917 big earthquake hit Guatemala City. Devastation emptied the place in one corner of the Zone 1, so the owners had decided to build something new. A hotel. It was built in Art Decostyle and was named Astoria.

    Soon, the hotel became very famous spot in the city; on its ground floor, there were several stores, like Klee pharmacy and Las Americas bakery. Due to the fact that hotel was a famous place for flight crews of Panamerican, in 1942 the name was changed. Even today, when that company does not exist anymore, the hotel keeps the name: Panamerican.

  • Transmetro
