The view for our room was amazing and the food Dona Elena cooked was excellent. Her young teenage grandson was there and was fun to talk to! It was just up the hill from the city center. I would surely stay here again!

We stayed here for three nights. The room was satisfactory but there was no bedding (no sheets!)--just a light cotton comforter on top of the mattress. There was one chair on the tiny balcony area which overlooked rooftops and some vegetation. Not a scenic view. Dogs barked throughout the night which caused sleepless periods. The hosts were helpful but busy...

The place itself makes you feel at home, rooms are simple but very nice and clean, the view is stunning, specially in the early morning but our most positive experience was the attention of all the people that work there they truly understand how to make you feel special and at home.

We only stayed for 1 Day at Dona Elenas but it was. A great experience. The room was large and spacious overlooking the Copan hills and she served a delicious breakfast of small pancakes until we were full. We also arranged for dinner there at 7pm and she served a splattering local delights, meat, plantains cream e rd with a...

Wonderful family that were so caring and patient. Clean and homely rooms full of nice touches and yummy traditional breakfasts each morning. Couldn't recommend for highly. Good location just up the hill from the main plaza and in walking distance of the bird sanctuary although there are cheap regulated tuk tuks everywhere. Enjoy!

We consider them our family and will forever keep them in our thoughts and prayers. Great value, great food, superb view along with atmosphere can not be replaced or arrived at...

My sister and I visited Copan and stayed at Casa Dona Elena for four nights. I had previously stayed there for three nights in June with a friend. We had a warm welcome and spotless amenities. Breakfast was prepared fresh each morning and they accommodated our dietary needs (I'm dairy free, sister is vegetarian). We needed an early check out...

This hotel is the biggest bargain I have ever gotten at a hotel. I was traveling alone and was able to get a room, picked up at the bus stop, have breakfast, and get set up with a tour guide for $20. The tour guide was extra but they arranged it all via email. The hotel is several blocks from...

Charming B&B run by the equally charming Dona Elena. Very good value for money too, with a roof terrace overlooking the valley! Rooms and rest of the hotel is very clean, the meals are simple but tasty, and the access to town is easy on foot too. It is even possible to walk to the ruins without too much effort.

This is a great place to stay in Copan. The rooms are very big and clean and the views beautiful. Each morning they serve a different Honduran breakfast cooked to order. The family are all very nice and the grandson is exceptionally helpful and speak great English.
