A last minute desire to spend NYE in Copan lead me to a hunt for two rooms with two double beds for three nights. All Copán hotels were sold out or priced sky high, I was left with only this hotel as an option. I knew it was budget, so was parepared, but this place is unacceptably loud, too loud that I could not sleep, even with earplugs.
I was pleased because it is two blocks away from main square and close to plenty of shops and the market, it has free parking and free internet/wifi, AC.
Plenty of hot water, beware of suicide shower
Beds are ok, AC is quiet and Fan is ok, TV with cable is mounted ceiling high.
Free Parking, cars left in courtyard, you do have to move it around when parking tandem.
Microwave in hallway.
Generator, it was turned on once when power went out
Great 3rd floor terrace, hammocks, great views
We booked a double and a family room with 4 double beds and two baths, great, fridge included.
Free internet, desktop in lobby, wifi never worked for me,
Not so good
Noise, Noise, Noise. It is by far a noisy hotel, on a very busy street where truck and motor taxis speed by at all times.
The hotel is built Alcatraz jail style, all windows and door face toward inner hallways. You can hear people in hallways and in other rooms.
Cement/tile build magnify the noise.
Front desk staff is not very helpful. They are willing to help, friendly, but not very effective even for minor requests.
The doors creek and make all sounds when you move them. Too noisy.
No shelves, closet, and small furniture to place items. No shelves in bathroom
Two cantinas are located the hotel, loud music, yelling drunks.
A store with loud music at all times is located adjacent hotel. Kids yell at all times
Although this place is cleaned daily, walls are stained, water damage on ceilings, stained tiles and walls make this place seem dirty.
Negotiate rate. I went during peak season and was overcharged. The front desk confessed that during slow season you can get a 50% discount for multiday stays.
Budget hotel, so expect budget accommodations. Housekeeping is good, but this place is basic.
Overall the biggest turnoff is the noise, never had any decent sleep. Good location, can be cheap if you negotiate rate, great if you want hot water, generator and AC/FAN. But unfortunately I will not return because I like my sleep.
