I really liked the style of this hotel, my room was very quaint. The rooms are located on two floors around a central courtyard which is quite pretty. The only slight problem with the room I was in was the acoustics, you could really hear people in other rooms/ walking round the hotel quite loudly. The shower was good. There... More

We stayed 3 night and found Chinimaya to be comfortable, quiet and secure. The inside courtyard provides a sense of nature and allowed us to watch the many birds that were in the trees. The hot typical breakfast was always ready quickly which allowed us to begin our days early. The staff was friendly and answered all of our questions.... More

Charmless but much better than adequate and much better than the price would suggest. Clean, friendly and accommodating staff, good breakfast, hot water. A little noisy (tour groups leaving early and neighbourhood dogs!)

Stayed for two nights at Hotel Chinimaya. It's a great base to explore Panajachel and is nearby the main stretch and Lake Atitlán. The rooms are clean and spacious and well equipped and staff are friendly and helpful. Wifi is fast too. Only problem I had was noisy people at night and early in the morning. Not sure if they...

So many hotels to choose in Panajachel and was worried about this one since didn't have as many reviews. A pleasant surprise then since this was probably the nicest place where we stayed in Guatemala. Staff made sure we were in quiet room since big tour group was staying. Big rooms with TV and hot showers. Breakfast included--choice of pancakes,... More

The hotel was fantastic! Tons of hot water, with a great little breakfast. The hotel is located near the centre, but not right on the main street which was great. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel was on a side street, so there was no traffic, but it also made it hard to find the first time we... More

The property is off the main streets of the town, which is probably why it's a bit cheaper than comparable hotel choices. It is run by the same people who manage the Atitrans shuttle company, so shuttles are commonly parked in what is a large, secure lot. Staff does not maintain the reception office on a regular basis, so a... More

We stayed here as part of a G Adventures Tour & the hotel rooms were a good size and very clean. It was just a short walk to the centre of town & we found the locals friendly & hospitable. Would recommend this hotel which is close to restaurants & amenities.

This hotel, with parking, is hidden away in the backstreets of Panajachel. Room on ground floor, just off coutyard. Quiet, clean and with free internet access. Bed mattress stiff. Hotel feels secure, 10 minutes walk from main drag with restuarants and souvenir shops.
