Very basic hotel. Room very rudimentary, simple furniture. Sanitary equipment clean but also very basic. For one night ok. Good location to visit the sinter terraces. We stayed here with a travel group.

The hostel is located right on the river and near the bus station, where all the buses in and out of town go. They have a good Semuc Champey tour, but be careful of scams when on the tour, always ask the price. They have helpful staff which was nice after an awful stay at HOTEL OASIS (don't stay here!!)....

After failing to find our hotel in town, we back tracked and found this gem in the forest. This is a basic Mayan rustic hotel. The rooms are clean but do not have any amenities. There is a restaurant with good food. The staff does not speak English but try to understand you, so be prepared to point at things...

We stayed there one night, and this was enough... The hotel is nothing special, with rooms in serious need of a refurbishment, but at least, it was clean and conviniently located. Food was nothing special. Not great but OK for one night.

We arrived in Lanquin (45 min away from Semuc Champey) full of excitement and ready to explore! This hotel was the first hotel at the entrance of the village. After seeing other hotels in Lanquin, and staying in another hostal in Coban from the same owner, we decided to stay here. The hotel is literally in the middle of the...

It's an old low budget hotel, with a couple of new rooms, more clean and better infrastructure. Free parking Have to be careful with the wild life, cause is all around. Even inside the room, we found a scorpion in the sink.

We stayed in the back our bed was reasonably comfortable room was clean lots of hot water. No extra pillows though. The restaurant was...

Its a really nice hotel surrounded amazing mounts and river. The rooms are comfortable and clean. My favorite part was the buffet dinner which so rich and delicious. The staff was nice, helpful and created great atmosphere. I also took a tour to Semuc Champey one of the greatest place that I have ever seen. I can recommend to everyone...

I was extremely displeased by this hotel because of the high ratingsgiven to it. The rooms where paper thin and there was barely any hot water. They have two filthy swimming pools that are black from algae. The food is soggy and disgusting. The beds are uncomfortable. Absolutely do not recommend.

“Back rooms are quieter, there are several rooms alongside the restaurant, which can be nosier, although the ones in the back of the restaurant aren't as bad.”

“4 separate buildings with sleeping rooms - singles, double beds, and multiple beds. Rooms in main building are closest to meals and parking.”
