Had two rooms on the top floor. Very steap stairs! Room 28 was very hot and uncomfortable with fan only. Room 25 good with quiet fan. Interesting placement of mirror! I guess it confirms a previous post that it is used for other purposes Excellent shower

This is the only budget place in Orange Walk, so there's no way around staying here when you're travelling on a shoestring, but be prepared. The feeling we had during our stay here was slightly influenced by the way we were welcomed at the reception desk. When we asked the young man behind the desk (I guess maybe the son... More

Cheapest place in town and although the place is clean the rooms a very basic. The major drawback for us was that it was possible to rent the room for two hour slots. That meant that there was a steady stream of 'couples' using the hotel for romantic purposes. I wouldn't stay here again for this reason.

The owner there, is great and the shower is fantastic!!!! WE felt very welcomed. Short walking distance to every ever and the beds are great!!!! I guess the best cost/benefit in town. To take rooms with air conditioner is quit advisable.

We stayed there two nights. The owners were very nice and helpful. This is the cheapest place in town. Rooms are noisy and old, but OK. If you want some comfort, don't go there but it's gonna by way more expensive! We booked a toor to Lamanai with them and it was very nice : Boat, food, guide.

Orange walk is a small town, so dont expect to have many options to stay, specially if what you are looking for is a not very expensive place. Akihito Hotel is very well located in downtown, there are many stores close to this place. The rooms are build in a strange way, the bathroom has no sink and when you... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the ruins of Lamanai. Good hotel, very basic, but had hot water, fan and tv. Lee the owner is a funny chap, but very friendly and helpful. What you need to remember is that orange walk isn't geared up for tourists. The ruins are ok but I've seen better since

Really, this place is nothing but cheap with a good location. Staff help you out with tours to lamanai. The room is varm and dirty. There is a fan, but extra charge for a/c. Beds are uncomfy. There is only a short swing door to the toilet, so don't be shy guys. They have a "rent for hours" policy.. Which... More

The hotel does look a little run down and when you walk in it isn't the brightest and most colourful of hotels but the guy at reception is super friendly and also very helpful. He is occasionally glued to his computer but you can ask him anything! The rooms are pretty small but enough room with a ceiling fan, I'm... More

Akihito is within walking distance of the temporary bus terminal (I believe it has been there for years now, so not that temporary..), and a good place to stay if you're a budget traveller. The owner was very helpful when we had questions, we could use the computer when needed, and he arranged a Lamanai tour for us. (We did... More
