We arrived in Guatemala City in the afternoon, were taking to the hotel where we were checked in and given a map of the city. We spent the afternoon exploring the City and its famous...

Nilito Mora is a gracious manager and host and when my wife forgot something hand delivered it to a dropoff location for her in Antigua. The staff is great. Breakfast is good and fairly priced: the same approx price as good desayunos anywhere on the streets. It's one block off the green Metro stations but is in a darkly lit...

Francesca greeted us when we rang the doorbell, and we were welcomed in. She speaks English well and asked us if we needed supper. She prepared pork chops and veggies just for my daughter and me. The next day was my daughter's birthday, and she and I were both given gifts: dolls dressed in native clothes doing typical activities. Breakfast...

The Posada Belen is a little gem of a place. Francesca Sanchelli organizes tours as well as runs posada full of fascinating artifacts from the Maya and Spanish history of Guatemala.

We stayed at this posada on the first and last nights of our trip. Staff there are very courteous and friendly. We appreciated the owners' travel suggestion to not miss Tikal. We were very happy that we visited Tikal as recommended by our host. We decided to modify our stay by reducing our initial stay from 2 nights to 1...

I only stayed in Guatemala City for one night before a flight, but I was happy with the economical price and sorting interior gardens of this hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Posada Belen is located in a fine colonial style home built in 1873 converted into an intimate Museum Inn, centrally located in a quiet street of the historical center of Guatemala City about 3 miles north from the airport (10-15 Minutes), run by the same family since opened in 1972 to international tourism. Posada Belen was slowly transformed from a colonial style home into a very special inn. Highly recommended in most important travel guides and by former guests/friends, with over 300 authentic registered Mayan artifacts on display as well as unique antique handicrafts plus many primitive paintings makes Posada Belen a true Museum, but most of all we are a clean, safe, centrally located, quiet, moderately priced, with good beds, great food, friendly relaxed atmosphere, and authentic HOME to start, end or organize your journey in Guatemala. We are conveniently located to visit any of the museums in Guatemala city, walk to the relief map, national palace, central market (lowest prices in the country for handcrafts), visit the pre classic Mayan ruins and museum of Kaminal Juyu, dozens of monumental churches , We are blocks away from the bus stations to Tikal, Xela, Antigua, Coban, Chiquimula, Rio Dulce. Etc. Shuttles are also available from the inn door. Guided walking City tour is available, Guatemala city is important if you really want to understand our culture and its history. We will be happy to help you with your itinerary and up to date travel and safety information. The Posada Belen is especially safe for women traveling alone. We have a pick up service available at any hour of day or night to all persons who will like to have a friendly and safe welcome into Guatemala's airport for about the same price as a taxi (depending on the arrival time from $10 to $15), we know we are not for everybody, our clients are usually smart people with lots of travel experience, who are looking for comfortably way to enjoy true Guatemalan culture and also likes to stay in a place with character. ... more   less
