Went to Coban with my family, this hotel is within walking distance to a busy market, yet is quiet and comfortable. We decided to have breakfast here, which was delicious! It has a very small dining area, which made it very intimate, the staff was very accommodating and friendly. They offer wifi, and with your towels they give you an... More

I made a reservation by phone, all the other hotels in this price range closer to the plaza were full. When google maps took me through a busy hectic market I couldn't help regretting my choice a little bit. When I got here I was very surprised, the hotel is quiet and calm, the reception area is welcoming, the rooms... More

This place is deceptive, as it's right at the edge of the Coban market, which is crowded with people all day long. It's in a cramped and noisy part of town. There is a sign atop a panaderia that says "HOTEL" and you make a left just after the pandaderia and proceed down a medium length driveway to the hotel,... More

I don't know how they did it, but this quiet retreat is just a few yards from a busy market street in Coban. If you're driving, you can pull your car up right in front of your room. We had TV and private WC/shower. There are also two covered seating areas if you want to get out of your room.... More

The hotel is located in the most busiest part of the town at the market. It is despite this fact very relaxed and quiet. It has room in the oldest part of the hotel This is like sleeping in a swiss or austrian chalet. THe only thing is that is very noisy but very charming. the other rooms are in... More

Just back from 10 days in Guatemala - 3 nights in Coban. We really liked Carlos V ("Carlos Quinto"). It was relatively quiet (except for the car alarm that went off at 4 am but that could happen anywhere) and has a lovely garden. Ask for one of the rooms at the end (#10) on the bottom floor. The upper... More
