This is the 5th or 6th time I've been through Panajachel over the past 20 years and it has certainly changed. I don't think I'm going to go out of my way to stay in Pana next time I'm through but if I do, I'll certainly stat at Mario's Rooms! The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the restaurant was... More

no-nonsense posada on the main road of panajachel. the inside garden is very nice and quiet, rooms are cheap (you could choose between smaller 160 quetzales or 170 larger rooms in early december 2014), and wifi is available everywhere in the hotel. people is very friendly and helpful - but that's pretty much the standard in Guatemala! an atm happens...

Rooms were a little small but very clean. One improvement I recommend is to make sure all windows are screened as some are not. It's a small place so sometimes had to spend a few minutes to find the rront desk staff. Otherwise, it was simple, clean, cheap with central location.

The staff was great. The garden seating area was beautiful. Our room was cheap and clean (cheaper than what we are paying for a hostel in Antigua) and with a private bath. I wasn't feeling well one afternoon and we asked for a TV, which the staff brought up to our room without a charge or a question. Our bed... More

Mario's Rooms were the budget/cheapest option from our Adrenalina tours weekend package for Lake Atitlan. I had read in the Lonely Planet Guide book that is was modest, but clean and the best in the budget category. I have to say I wasn't expecting much, but it is quite a bit nicer than I ever thought. We had two rooms... More

Good value for money. Rooms are pretty big and clean, breakfast is included. Nice garden, staff was friendly and helpful all the time. You can reach everything within a few minutes walking. Would go there again.

I stay at Mario's Rooms whenever I am in Panajachel because of the warm and friendly staff and owners! If feels like home for me because I have been staying there for several years when in Pana. The rooms are very clean and I love all the flowers in the courtyard. I always feel safe and secure at Mario's Rooms.... More

We stayed there with our 2 kids - 6 months old and 2.5 years old. Very convenient location on the main ( and busiest) street in Pana but very quiet inside. We were one of the very few guests at that time which added to the atmosphere of quietness and emptiness. (Which we actually enjoyed) No common area so i... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Mario's! The staff there are so friendly and the hotel is beautiful! It is full of gorgeous, colorful gardens amongst the patio and I even saw a hummingbird! My only complaint is that my room was pretty small and there wasn't a fan to keep cool, but all in all, I'd for sure go... More

Not a bad place to stay but not very spacious. I could feel the springs in my bed. Very friendly staff. The breakfast included is mínimum. Avoid the oatmeal looks like a runny soup without the oats. Best if you are on a budget. It is very close to an ATM.
