Good Hotel Antigua 

Where a good night’s sleep helps a child go to school for a week.

In 2006, Marten Dresen, founder of the Good Hotel, was traveling through Guatemala when he met Mirna, a girl with no shoes, and decided to buy her a pair of Converse trainers. This kick-started a chain reaction that led to the creation of Good Hotel Antigua, where every good nights sleep will help a disadvantaged child go to school for a week.

Good Hotel is an organisation that enables local communities to thrive and facilitates training that will help secure a sustainable future for disadvantaged children and their parents. 

Thelma is a prime example, a single mom whose child attends a Ni√Īos de Guatemala school and has also secured her first paid job, as a hotel housekeeper, through the Good Training Program. Thelma now also runs her own business making traditional worry dolls for hotel guests. 

All excess profits from Good Hotel Antigua go towards Ni√Īos de Guatemala, a foundation that was co-founded in 2007 by Marten Dresen, providing underprivileged children with the education they would otherwise be deprived of. Ni√Īos de Guatemala now runs two primary schools and a secondary school, housing over 600 local children.

The Good Training Program was established in 2015 to provide bespoke hospitality training for local people, including three months of classroom study and paid work experience.
