“Friendly and accommodating but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We arrived in Panajachel close to New Year's to discover that most things were booked solid. We came across Posada Don Carlos upon recommendation of a local who showed us the way. It's located down a back street/alley so we were a bit leery at first, but it turned out to be safe with a gated garden providing safe parking for our motorcycles (you might have a hard time getting a car down the alley!). Our room was clean and on the second floor (I think the family takes up most of the rooms on the first). Internet signal was good. Cockroaches were a problem, and a loud banging sound from behind the hotel kept me awake most of the night. But the owners were friendly and accommodating and the hotel is withing walking distance to the main intersection of town, bars, and the market.
