Right off Calle Santander, but tranquil and peaceful. A locked door and a bell ensured safety. The rooms were a little small, but comfortable and welcoming. Contrary to a previous review we were provided soap and the towels were fine. The restaurant was great but breakfast was not included. We left our big bags here and travelled light for three...

This is a nice property but the nicely appointed rooms are very small and housekeeping is walking by a lot and there is only one window. The linens are nice and the rooms have original Mayan décor. There is a restaurant on site with cheao but not fancy food. Only the natural smoothies are good but the ladies are so...

With friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms this is a great little hotel. We stayed in a double room with toilet and shower and everything was to our liking. excellent wifi and free filtered water make this place a five star recommendation.

You get the idea from the other reviews. It's basic, secure, decent price, well located, and easy going. They had a nice outdoor kitchen if you wanna plug in the fridge for your beverages, and a gas stove for your mr noodle. The mattress was well worked in, but not uncomfortable, and the towels were beyond needing replacing, so.... if...

We paid 20$ a person for a private room for three people. One double bed and one single. Beds were pretty hard but not terrible. Wifi is bad in the rooms. Room was clean and area was quiet, so all in all not a bad place.

A very good hotel for a couple of nights in Panajachel. Basic but clean, the hotel is in a good location. And feels very safe. We would not recommend staying more than one night in Panajachel as it is expensive when compared to other towns on the lake and there is virtually nothing to do. Transport is also very expensive...

Really nice hostel, such an excellent location right on the main strip and near the lake. Was really quiet which was good and had lots of rooms available. Little bit more expensive but included a nice breakfast, would definitely recommend. Just show up and ask no need to prebook

Breakfast each morning between 7:30am-10:00am. They give you a menu of four choices which you bring down to the restaurant the morning-of, and they're willing to adjust a little if desired. Rooms were cleaned each day: bedsheets changed, towels replaced, and an 8-oz "agua pura" (filtered water) brought each day. Throughout the hotel, everything was kept pretty immaculate and the...

Stayed one night in June 2016. Nice clean rooms with 2 beds and a bathroom with shower. Paid about $40 for 2 persons. If I owned the place I would put in bug screens over the windows as everyone is so scared of Zika right now. There is a lot of noise from the shopping district of Panahachel but it...

We spent 3 nights here. The room itself was fine, comfortable bed, clean bathroom. The Wifi was pretty good. Until I reread reviews here I didn't remember breakfast---we were not offered/told breakfast was included in the price.We paid Q 240. There was only one or two other rooms occupied. The staff was friendly enough but did not seem to go...
