Amazing location, clean rooms and communal area (including bathrooms) plus unbeatable price make this place a very good option while in town. I have marked it down a notch for the outdated decor and the owner constantly mentioning people that might walk though the property by night, that are "up to no good" but will be caught on cameras

if you book this through booking dot com, even if you go through the online payment thing, you will still have to pay once you get there, and then booking releases the money they charged back to you. It confused me, but did work out in the end, and figured i should mention it. The location of this place is...

We stayed here 3 nights and it was great. The location is fantastic, very close to everything in town. The owners are incredibly friendly and knowledgable. The rooms are also super cheap so you really can't go wrong here.

This is right on the main pedestrian street of Burns Avenue so close to everything. I loved the fact it was more like a hostel than a hotel so had a very laid back vibe and a garden to sit in if you wanted some fresh air. The rooms were very clean Bedding changed every other day Fresh towels every...

- Very cheap place. I had a single room with windows towards the hallway ($15/night). Super uncomfortable bed. Really, I could feel every spring. Slight smell of mould but not too bad. Walls are thin but people were quiet and went to bed early so that was no big problem. No reception. Wifi only worked in one spot in the...

Sooooo glad we found this place and went with our gut instinct. It's cheap accommodations, perfectly located, quite, cute and the management are just sweet hearts. If you're looking for luxury and want to be waited on then go somewhere else for sure. But we are backpackers that prefer to blow our cash on the sights and food. We usually...

Great location, great price, very clean. The staff is very helpful and provides great recommendations. We asked about Tikal and ATM and they were very helpful with both. The location is right on the main road with all of the tour companies right around.

The Tropicool Hotel is an inexpensive option that's right downtown. We put a visiting professor there when he'd realized he was going to stay an extra night. It was secure, and close to downtown. It was nice that they were able to help us out last minute. Had a little garden area on site that added some nice green to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tropicool Hotel has an away feeling even though it is only one block from the center of town. The property, which stretches between Burns Avenue and West Street, is dotted with flowering plants and fruit trees: guava, banana, plantain, lime, custard apple and more -- which add shade and coolness to the place. There are rooms with shared bathrooms, outside there are three individual cabins with private bath and cable TV, offering a little more privacy. Everything is meticulously clean from the outdoor sitting area to the bathrooms. This family-run hotel is well-established and includes a nicely stocked gift shop. Inside the hotel there is a bulletin board with helpful information on tours and activities in the area. ... more   less
