Although Casa Amelia is not fancy, it is perfectly fine for crashing after long days of hiking through Mayan ruins. It is right in the center of a charming little town that is small and easy to walk. It has great views from the rooftop deck, where you will surely find yourself relaxing at sunset. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and allowed us to check in at 5:30 am. It was a breeze to set up transport to Tikal. The price suited our tight budget. Many good restaurant options in the area. Only a short and cheap taxi ride to the airport. 1 hour to Tikal. This was a good choice.

Room Tip: Get a lakeside room if you can!

Casa Amelia was a great place to stay in Flores. The room and hotel were clean. Our room had a great view of the lake. The staff were friendly. The breakfast could've been better and there's no flexibility when it comes to an early check-in. Overall great value.

Exfcept the roof terrace which is just lovely.
The rooms onto the street wake up at five with the coaches off to Tikal.
The Amelia cafe is nothing to get excited about: there are three better within a few metres
Two of my light bulbs were out but reception didnt seem bothered

Room Tip: get a lake view if you can

Altogether we stayed almost a week in Casa Amelia, using it as a base between different trips we did in the Peten. The staff are friendly and always helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. We loved the terrace and the lake views.
The hotel has safety boxes but that's exactly what they are: portable metal boxes that anyone could just carry away. We ended up leaving our valuables and electrical items locked in our backpacks and didn't have any problems. Once we left a laptop out charging and when we came back the room was cleaned with the laptop untouched. We also left some of our luggage with them when going to Tikal and again everything was just as we had handed it to them so we would say that the hotel is safe and that the staff can be trusted despite there being no decent safety deposit box.
We would definitely stay there again.

We checked in here after a crap experience at Casa del Lacandon - definitely more expensive but a far better hotel. We had one of the rooftop rooms which was very clean and the view from the roof was awesome. The free breakfast served from 3-6am (maybe 7am, can't remember) could have been better. Other than that we would definitely stop here again

We stayed here for a night while we looked for a place in Remate. A reasonable price for three beds and and a fairly clean bathroom in a great location. Very near lots of restaurants, the lake, and everything else in Flores. The desk staff were very courteous and could speak pretty good English. If you're looking for a quiet room, look elsewhere; this place is right on the street.

Praise for the staff: I left my cell phone charger in the room. We returned for it two days later, and they had it!

Disappointments: the AC wouldn't work for us; it just circulated air.

Room Tip: Triple room for families!

We loved our stay at Casa Amelia! The room had gorgeous, huge windows looking over the lake. It would be impossible to beat the price. We also encountered an issue with a bus ticket and the staff went above and beyond to help us through the issue. We will absolutely stay there next time we're in Flores!
