7 Dollars Lake Atitlan Hotel Room in El Amigo King Size Bed #cheaphotel
There are a few super Hotel deals on Lake Atitlan, and the world, and by far, the Hotel Amigo is one of them. Yet, it is a 7 dollar hotel, family ran, truly does not get it sometimes, but 93 dollars cheaper than a Sheraton or Holiday Inn that does get it You can easily pay 100 dollars on Lake Atitlan and the hotel will have the same problems as Hotel Amigo. I truly hope, that El Amigo never realizes that it is a quiet hotel on a dead end street, and that Hotels in Panajachel are normally too noisy because the Tuk Tuk traffic, the Motorcycles are crazy noisy. and although my alley is full of dog droppings, too many dogs in Pana, all in all, it is one of the better Hotels I know. Value makes a Hobo feel happy, although many AirBnb propertes are gorgeous, nobody stays long, because they are in horrible locations often, cost 3 times more, and make me wonder, Real Estate rules state that 3 things determine value, it is 1. Location, number 2 is Location, and 3 is Location. But my essential truth is this, it is 1. Transportation 2. Transportation and 3 Transportation. When a person has to drive a long way, walk a long way, when something is inconvenient, they waste time on beauty, and not on convenience. Walmart is incredibly convenient, 100 percent money back guarantee One can take a 7 dollar room into a 5 star room if it is quiet, you cannot get your value back when you pay 100 dollar for a reservation from hell because it was on top of TripAdvisor. --- People who live in a Hotel for 1-2 weeks a year do not understand Hotels.--- Then they are going to say it is great room, because they never will admit they paid 100-300 dollars and it was a bad deal, we just do not allow others to think we are stupid. Yet, there is no bragging rights for 7 dollar Hotels, only that in your mind, you know you are the smarter person. Now, there is one horrible problem for El Amigo, the practicing alcoholics who come home at 3:00 AM, will have a devil of a time getting in the Hotel, this is is family hotel, and they lock the doors at 10-11, and the never-ending party people need to find another place to live, sort of fun for me, drinking doubles, triples, and collateral cost grow with drinking too much beer. We think this is everyone, but truly only about 15 percent of people, yet, the wag the dog, and many people cannot go slow on vacations and see that gate keepers are asleep. I have a Facebook, I do not friend people back who friend me on Facebook, it is only for family, writing me there, or Twitter, Youtube, etc is a waste of time. But, if you want to write El Amigo, they will reply, probably better in Spanish, but I think in English. In the movie "The Beach," there is this idea to never share the map, to never tell anyone the map to paradise, this does not function, everyone is sharing the map... Yet, we are lucky, TripAdvisor truly misses most of the best locations, because they grade on a commission, the more expensive, the worst the value, the more they are gamed. Reviews are gamed, people have friends, everyone make them work. In the end, and honest person talking to you, that you trust, maybe a member on Hobo is solution, we need to them, follow them, understand them. Savvy understanding is amiss, common sense now makes people angry, good friends can make you angry, that is our right, a person that will not tell me something I do not want to hear is not my friend, friends help in polite ways to steer us, to refuse to steer is not a friend, it is just another person on the street. We all can be friends, polite, and no need to try to make a splash of comments, just talk civil. Well, I am glad to show my room, I think Nanette asked, where is the video. Life is good, and always better when I am 100 percent sure I got my moneys worth. https://www.facebook.com/hotelelamigo.panajachel
