Hotel Utz Rajil is a great value. It is a newer place and feels newer. Rooms are small but very clean and comfortable. Beds were comfortable. Rooms in the back are definitely quieter. Wifi coverage is not the best, and is slow when there are others. They said they are upgrading the speed soon. Free drinking water in the lobby.... More

This hotel was by far the best one we found for a good price in Pana. The staff are very hard-working, keeping the place spotless (it is a new-build) and they will always ask if you would like the room cleaned or fresh towels etc. The hotel is located on 14 febrero st, just off the main Santander st so...

Rooms were clean. Shower was good with hot water. Cable tv in room. Free internet but it was very slow. Staff was friendly and helpful. Drinking water available in the lobby. The street dogs of Pana were very noisy at night so earplugs would probably be a good idea.

My school in Xela suggested this place after it's sister hotel UTZ Jay was booked. Utz Rajil knocked off 15% of the rate. Paying the full rate this place would be a bargain. It's located on a side street, so while you hear the dogs bark and roosters squawk, you don't hear much other street noise. The room is tasteful... More

I wasn't in any hurry so I wandered around for at least an hour checking out various hotels. After about 8 , this was the best value I found. After staying in an ultra economy room in San Pedro I needed an upgrade. The manager was genuinely friendly without being pushy. I asked for the quietest room he had. The... More

For those on a travel budget but want to avoid hostels and shared bathrooms, we recommend Hotel Rajil located off the main road in downtown Panajachel. The building is well maintained and spotless. Rooms are midsize windowed with high ceilings and fans. Some have balconies with a view of the volcano.We had a comfy bed, plenty of hot water and... More

This was our second year in a row staying at Hotel Utz Rajil. The rooms are simple and clean with cable, hot water and if you ask for it a balcony over the street. The Hotel is very reasonably priced for it's location downtown.

I agree with the other reviewers. This hotel has few frills but is well maintained and clean. The private baths were clean, the water hot. The bed was firm, but comfortable. My only complaints: 1) no wireless internet 2) a rooster on the rooftop of the building next door started crowing at 6am. No staff members speak English, but all... More

This was a very good place for the price. The owner, Marcos, is a very nice man who is focused on making you comfortable. He owns the little tienda next door and is almost always available if you have concerns. His employee Mario keeps the place spotless. We stayed for a month earlier this year. The only drawback is that... More

The owner is very welcoming but no one here really speaks any English. We stayed in a double that had a balcony and faced the main street. We could hear the voices of people living in the building next door, and dogs barking on the street. The bathroom was very clean and had hot water. Note: If you dry your... More
