Hotel Tepepul Kaan
Reviewed 20 November 2013

We loved our stay at Tepepul Kaan. Tepepul Kaan is run by Issac and Elsa, a husband and wife who work very hard to make sure the hotel is safe, clean, and welcoming. It is located off of the main strip, which make sit a very pleasant place to escape the party scene that defines San Pedro la laguna. This hotel is secure and quiet.... two things that can be a challenge to find elsewhere in San Pedro. There is a small kitchen upstairs that everyone can use and the views from the rooftop are really great. Don't hesitate to ask Elsa and Isaac if you need anything, they are very kind and always willing to help. The rooms are somewhat average but it is clear that Isaac and Elsa both take great care to keep them as clean and comfortable as possible. A portion of your payment goes towards helping local children- all the info is just inside the entrance of the hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs have great views. Ask about rates for long-term stay.

25% of the price you pay for the guesthouse goes to schooling local children, which you have to take in consideration. If you don't travel for a long time it is nice to give a little bit to charity without having to give up your precious holiday time for volunteering.

The guesthouse is located a 5 min walk from the touristy street, so convenient and a little less busy. The rooms are pretty small but are nicely painted. Outside of your room you have a balcony with some hammocks. The roof of the guesthouse has a small kitchen, some chairs and a hammock and a great view of the lake. Wifi is very good in comparison with other places in Guatemala. The bathroom is pretty narrow, but clean. The water pressure of the shower was just adequete. At night there is a lot of noise until 11pm, firecrackers, tuk tuks, music, dogs etc... But it will be like that all over the center of San pedro.

The price was accurate. 140 quetzales for a double breakfast available but not included. Laundry was 10 Quetzales per Kilo, very reasonable.

The people that work here are very friendly and helpfull, but speak little English. The cat is very cute and friendly.

Elsa and Isaac are hard-working locals running a very clean, pretty property one block up from the loud, partying tourist scene right on the busy lake. With 24-hour security this husband and wife team seem to never stop working and the property reflects the pride they take in it. The rates are excellent, the rooms spotless and painted in a cheery, bright pink and guests have access to a little kitchen and affordable water and, if needed, food and a refrigerator.

The hotel offers its own in-house Spanish school and, because Elsa and Isaac are locals, they can assist any guest who wishes to spend their tourism dollars with Guatemalans.

Yes, the water is lukewarm and its location is in a Guatemalan neighbourhood: you are going to get the same, plus the noise of more industry and a lot of partying tourists closer to the lake without the panoramic view of the surrounding pueblos and volcanos from “T-Ka-a.”

This is a great hotel in San Pedro and the owners are honest, hard-working people.

Showed up late at night after a shady experience at another hotel in San Pedro and the the guy, after questioning our antics, allowed us a room. he wouldn't unlock the gate to allow us onto the property until he was sure that we were safe and only intended to have a double occupancy for only two people. That he knows not to trust just anybody onto the property, guarded by lock and key, made me feel incredibly safe. you'll need a passport number to check in. fresh towels and whole roll of toilet paper provided upon arrival. the room was perfectly clean and we slept like rocks.


five stars. $9/night. i'll never stay anywhere else in san pedro.
