We enjoyed a 10 day stay here in November 2015. Our room was off the courtyard and we enjoyed the gorgeous garden right outside our door. It was our first time in this part of Mexico and Bella helped to make our stay so much better with her information on things to see and do. She has contacts everywhere in... More

My husband and I stayed at Bela's for 6 nights in late January. Our room was great (a "suite"), the breakfasts were delicious and the central location was perfect. But what I think really sets Bela's apart is Bela herself and the people we met who were staying there. Bela knows a LOT about San Cristobal and the surrounding area.... More

Bela's B&B is a wonderful place for discovering San Cristóbal de las Casas. I stayed in the upstairs room with the balcony that provided a wonderful view of the town and her lovely garden full of bougambilia, hibiscus, roses, succentlents and many other beautiful plants. Bela gave me a heater for the room, so I was never cold. The beds... More

Bela's was perfect for our stay in San Christobal. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. It stayed warm and we didn't even need to use the heater that she provided. The courtyard is lush and a great place to sit in the sun. The location is perfect for exploring and seeing the sights. Everything was great and the best... More

You just can't beat Bela's for comfort, for care, for a lovely room, for a great breakfast, for meeting others. We stayed in the room at the top with a small balcony. Each morning we opened the doors to an always changing vista depending on the weather. The garden, too, is beautiful. And for a final touch, it was our... More

WOW. Bela is an incredible host:) 1) I've stayed in many B&B's and her is absolutely one of the best in the WORLD. It's cozy, comfortable, warm, fun, informative, stress free, dog friendly, reasonable priced, I could go all day... 2) We arrived very late from Palenque and Bela was still up to greet us. And even better she had... More

All the reviews talk about the perfect location, the beautiful hacienda style details, and the wonderful quiet within a bustling city so I don't feel I have to reiterate those positives. To me the thing that makes Bela's so special is Bela! Her warmth, constant attention and knowledge of the environment goes a long way in being happy and secure... More

My husband and I just spend two weeks at Bela's amazing home. The house is a beautiful Mexican colonial house which Bela has kept amazingly beautiful. We stayed at the suite and the room was very spacious and gorgeously decorated, with a big bathroom and a very confortable king size bed. We had very good night sleeps in it, and... More

This is a wonderful b-and-b in so many ways. It is located very close to the center of town, but not in the middle of things, which is just perfect. A terrific cafe (Frontera) is just a block away. The place is beautifully laid-out with a lovely garden and a beautiful breakfast room. The rooms surround the garden. The suite... More

My wife and I stayed with Bela for the second year in a row. Sorry it has taken me so long to get in here, but that was in January. It was another wonderful stay. We love visiting with Bela, her staff and guests at breakfast. We go in January so often, early in the morning, the wood stove is... More
