We ended up here because of reservation mixup and were pleasantly surprised. Located in center of main street so very close to everything. Had room overlooking the street and sat on balcony on Friday evening watching the traffic go by. Staff was very pleasant and very helpful. Only drawback is no breakfast served there.

I've rated this hotel "average" simply because I was expecting "OK" and was quite surprised by the room quality and gracious employees. As mentioned, the street noise can be a bit loud, however, we enjoy that energy so we requested a room right above Calle Santandar. The rooms were spotless, and the office staff very helpful. Kept our bags for... More

This hotel was amazing and totally unexpected given its surroundings. It can be found about halfway along Calle Santander, the main road in Panachachel above a tour office and some shops. The rooms are huge, immaculately kept and have 2 huge, comfortable double beds. Some might find these minor details, but the T.V. has cable, the toilet paper is folded... More
