“A little too noisy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2011

A little too noisy, too close to the main street. Close to the lake and the restaurants. Big rooms. Thin sheets.

Room Tip: The rooms are on the main street.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2010

We stayed here for 2 nights and really liked this hotel. There were not many rooms taken so we were given a larger room for 5 people even though there were only 2 of us. The bathroom was clean and the shower hot ( sometimes hot showers are hit and miss in Guatemala). We had tv which might not be a good thing but a longing for some english in the midst of spanish was very welcome. The pool wasnt cleaned as I dont think it had been used . This didnt matter as the area had a bad time with the rainy season just past. While we were there they were cleaning and preparing the hotel for the busy season. The price was well worth it

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2008

It is a little hotel in the middle of Panajachel. Very well situated, not far away from de lake (5 minutes walking). Budget and clean. It has car park and swimming pool. TV and a little garden. The worse thing was the bathroom; though it was private, it was smaill, rusty, careless. It is one weakness to be taken into account.
