Nice clean and only 100Q for private room with bathroom etc. Very close to the dock. Set off the main road a bit so noise wasn't a problem. Breakfast not included bit a variety of small coffee shops etc just outside.

100Q for a single room with private restroom, wifi, towel, soap, and is clean. Is located on a great location and the lake can be seen from the hallway. The family is extremely nice and helpful. They also have a laundry next to the hotel obviously one needs to pay.

El Gran Sueño is owned by a delightful, local family. It is not a fancy, luxury hotel, but it's pretty, clean and in an ideal location! It's very close to the lake and the launch, where you take the boats to villages nearby. They also have WiFi.

We stayed at Gran Sueño for two weeks in San Pedro. It's a great value, and Jeremy (the owner/manager) gave us a bit of a deal because we booked for 15 days! It is a family-run business, which I like, and the folks there were gracious and helpful...even helping us with our limited Español! We took room 11, which everyone... More

We stayed here over the New Year. We walked in at the height of busy season an were lucky enough to get a room. Our Spanish is poor to non existent but the family here was easy enough to communicate with. We booked two nights then had to find another place for NYE which was proving quite hard to do.... More

We found this place on the day and the owner who spoke little English showed us a couple of really clean and comfortable rooms. Both had private ensuite bathrooms; Q100-150. We picked the room with a river view and had a comfortable couple of nights here. Wifi and refillable water. We also got towels and soap! They don't do breakfast... More

We originally stayed in another place in San Pedro, but we didn't like it and looked around for another budget option. After looking at 5-6 places, we decided on Hotel Gran Sueno. We stayed at Gran Sueno for four nights and we enjoyed it for what it was - an inexpensive, comfortable, no frills place to stay with a good... More

We found this hostel whilst we were there, since we had originally reserved a different place which turned out to be terrible and we felt compelled to leave and find somewhere better - in comparison, this place seemed like paradise. The staff were reasonably attentive, the price was OK, and the room we had was actually lovely - great view... More

This place isn't cheap by San Pedro standards, and it's not even all that wonderful. The staff isn't terrible, they just don't care all that much. The rooms are ok, nothing breath taking, and one wonders why the prices are so high. However, you can haggle if staying for an extended time, and you can do worse. Not a rousing... More

I stayed here for three nights. If you want a party hotel where you can meet many other travelers then I don't recommend this hotel. There are probably enough posibilities for that in San Pedro. If you're looking for a restfull place with clean rooms and private bathrooms for a very sharp price (room with tv, baño privado, clean towel... More
