This place is just far enough from the busy portion of Panajachel to be quiet at night. It seemed to be a pretty safe area. Not a lot going on in the hotel itself but walking distance to everything Pana has to offer.

We had a wonderful experience at Mario's rooms this week. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spotless. I even had to look under the bed because I dropped my phone, and there was not a spot I dust anywhere! Would definitely stay again if I came back to Pana.

We stayed for 2 nights. The rooms were clean and we had private bathrooms. The breakfast was a little lacking. They have beautiful plants and flowers hanging everywhere. Mario' Rooms is located right in the heart of Panajechel so we were close to everything.

Stayed in this place a couple of nights and could not have been more delighted. Rooms spotless with nice little touches - pretty bedspreads and pictures. The little courtyard is also lovely to sit in the shade away from busy street outside. Free breakfast small but perfectly formed. Would stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights and found this to be an excellent choice. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were really friendly. Even though it is on the main street, there is very little noise, especially at night. Yes you have to pay extra for a room with a hot shower but it was only Q20... More

We decided to pay more for hot water which decided to be a worthwhile venture! It seemed to play up a little at first but after some perseverance, there was hot water after all! It was a bit more than I was expecting to pay (especially with hot water) but I found it to be a good option. The rooms... More

This place is in the busy Santander street, so you won't have the nice view on the lake. The room was very clean and comfy. If you book in advance you may have an included breakfast, though pretty average. Staff was very kind and happy to help. The interior patio is nice as well. If you can't stay by the... More

The agony of choice. Asked us if we wanted a room with or without hot water. The latter being more expensive...this is the first time I have had this choice, and we have been living in hostels for 3 months now. The water was indeed hot however. The bed comfortable. The room clean. The wi-fi worked fine, and the staff... More

We were booked into this hostel as part of a tour. The rooms are fine with private bathroom but the real inadequacies are clear at night; huge gaps in the windows make them rattle in the wind all night, and the gale force winds feel as strong as outside. Howling dogs could be heard despite being in a room at... More

The staff here are all lovely, the rooms are very clean and it is in the heart of panajachel. However, the room had a large tap by the window allowing for lots of noise and draft at night. In addition, the breakfast was very average, and certainly not of a 5/5 rating compared to what is offered elsewhere in Guatemala.... More
