We loved our spacious room in this gorgeous B&B located in the historic district of San Cristobal. Bela arranged for our pickup at the airport in Tuxtla Gutierrez and our return to the airport. Unfortunately my husband and I got got sick during our five day stay, but we were brought homemade ginger ale and given TLC. I already want... More

Bela's B&B was a delight from start to finish. Our room at the top had a marvelous bed with comfy sheets and large towels. There were even washcloths, something hard to find in most Mexican hotels. The room was immaculate, the electric bed warmers were so comforting on chilly nights. The electric towel warmers were a special treat. The true... More

When you are at Bela's you do know feel like you are staying in a hotel, b&b or even a guest house...you feel like you are at home! Not only is this because of the cozy accommodations (the beds are ridiculously comfortable) and the beautiful garden, but because of the atmosphere and Bela herself. She welcomes you like long-lost friends... More

Terrific B&B with a perfect host. Saw several other accommodations and none came close to Bela's! Everything was great. Perfect location, lovely breakfast and beautiful gardens. And Bela was a great source of information and had great recommendations.

My wife and I recently spent a month with Bela. We stayed in the suite with the king size bed and a view over the rooftops of the old city. We were not just comfortable, but cozy, in spite of San Cristobal's cool nights. The breakfasts are ample and delicious, the other guests who gather around the communal table are... More

with its great array of tropical plants and wild color, yet dinner was served and the salad with its grated beets, carrots in a bed of varied greens nearly matched this. This is a "b and b," so dinner (Mexican hour at 2:30) isn't an included feature; however, it is worthwhile to arrange with Bela to eat this, as the... More

It is almost a year since we stayed at Bela's fine casa and after three years of travel we have yet to discover a more delightful B&B. From the minute you step through the heavy doors into a tranquil garden full of colourful, luxuriant plants and charming local ceramics you feel completely at home. Our room was exceptionally clean and... More

Great place, good room. Bela was very helpful with all kinds of tips for our time. We used the driver she recommended who was great. When we had tragedy strike (teenage daughter lost her iPhone) she was there (teenage daughter found phone in other bag after recovery action was in progress) and not at all upset about the stupid drama....

1. Short Version - stay here. 2. Expanded version - This was my second visit to SC. Stayed for one week in the uppermost room with a patio which had sunlight all day and made for a great feeling of privacy. The queen bed was excellent, shower good, everything very clean, steps not a problem (71 and both knees replaced),... More

I have harbored a wish to have my own B&B one day for many years. If I ever do, Bela will be my role model. With an incredibly relaxed and warm, knowledgable personality she runs her beautiful business to perfection. She has thought of EVERYTHING for the comfort of her guests and I felt totally at home. The communal breakfasts... More
