“five stars.”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Showed up late at night after a shady experience at another hotel in San Pedro and the the guy, after questioning our antics, allowed us a room. he wouldn't unlock the gate to allow us onto the property until he was sure that we were safe and only intended to have a double occupancy for only two people. That he knows not to trust just anybody onto the property, guarded by lock and key, made me feel incredibly safe. you'll need a passport number to check in. fresh towels and whole roll of toilet paper provided upon arrival. the room was perfectly clean and we slept like rocks.


five stars. $9/night. i'll never stay anywhere else in san pedro.

I am so glad we found this place in San Pedro; so many of the other hotels looked either really run down or very noisy party hostels. This place is just up the street from the main bars etc, so it is much quieter. It is also really good value with basic but clean private rooms with private bathrooms. The gardens are pretty and the roof terrace has nice views.
We were on a 2 month trip of Central America and didn't want to spend a huge amount of money, so this was a great option for us as a couple, especially as we didn't really fancy getting involved with the party scene in San Pedro.
It was a great base for exploring the Lake Atitlan area, as San Pedro is a lot less expensive than other smaller towns such as San Marcos, plus there are loads of activities, places to eat and easy transport options here.
The hotel is run by a very friendly couple, who donate a portion of the hotel earnings to a local school. Elsa the owner is really lovely, and made us really yummy breakfast pancakes a few mornings.
We also met some really nice other guests in this hotel, as I think it attracts a more grown up independent traveller type.
A great find in San Pedro.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have hammocks outside so ask for one of those. Also the rooms at the front have be...

This place was an absolute hidden gem of a hotel. Everywhere else in town was booked so we walked around town until we stumbled upon Tepeppul Kaan. Right off the bat the owners treated us with so much respect, and you could tell how great of people they are.

They brought us to our room which was a double with a bathroom. Everything about the room was so incredibly clean. I have never seen anything like it ever before, I literally would have eaten off the floors.

The only reason they are not popular right now is because they are so hidden. I really hope more people find out how great value this hotel is.

They also offer breakfast for 20 or 30 Q, and it was the biggest and best pancakes I have ever tasted with a heaping pile of fresh fruit.

We were staying at another hostel first and did not like it at all, too many drunken people, loud, party etc. but then we found Hotel Tepepul Kaan and stayed there for our last night and we regretted that we booked our bus already to Antigua. We would have stayed longer at this lovely little hotel. Our room and bathroom were very clean and cozy. There is also a roof top terrace where you have a great view over the lake. The people who run the hotel are very friendly and hearty. The woman called a friend of us with her cell phone and did not want any many for that. Further they support children with the money they make from the hotel. I can't exactly remember but I think it was around 25% that goes to charity!
We loved the hotel and if you are looking for a quiet, safe and clean room you should stay at Tepepul Kaan it's great value for your money!
