We had a room near the back so a bit quieter than out front, plus we had a window to the outside, so not in the weird internal rooms. The window didn't have a mosquito net which was really annoying, so we couldn't open the window. Rooms were brightly painted and beds acceptable. Bathroom is not for people who are... More

The location is good, wifi works, amazing hot water shower, quiet, clean for Belize, nice staff but our room was pretty damp. Also, our bathroom only had one of those small, swinging doors that you can see through so that's weird

I have stayed here while working in San Ignacio. It is just what everyone says, Basic. For the price you cannot beat it! We have teenage girls and women with us on the trips and the only complaint I have ever gotten was a bug, same thing could happen if you stayed at Copalas. They gates are locked at night... More

I have been going to San Ignacio every year for past 5 years during Thanksgiving weekend. Usually I stayed at Martha"s Guest House which is more upscale but this trip she was full so I checked into Venus Hotel rt off the square. My first big surprise was the square being finished. Almost though I was in a European side... More

Although reasonably clean and with private bathrooms this hotel is little more than a back packers hostel. Not really what we expected and we were glad that we weren't staying more than two nights. Very centrally located but then so are most things in San Ignacio!

the hotel was chosen by Intrepid within a basic tour and definitely basic is the hotel too. Rooms are small and shabby the hotel looks old and would need some maintenance.The location is good but the town is so small that it's difficult to be far from the centre.

If you're looking for somewhere cheap and affordable to stay while in San Ignacio, Venus is great. The rooms are simple but clean and reasonably spacious. There is the option to pay for air con if you want it. The hacienda bathrooms don't leave much privacy but are clean and all you really need. Perfect location for just about anything... More

San Ignacio was my husbands and my last city destination for a week long trip in Belize. I have to say Venus Hotel/San Ignacio was a highlight. As usual we arrived in a town with no reservations or destinations. Stopped by a local restaurant where we met Abraham. He told us how to drive around town and recommended Venus Hotel... More

We had two terrible nights in this dump - we tried getting a room in another hotel, but there was nothing available. Room looked like a prison cell in some third world country! Can't even begin to describe the place...hated it and recommend you run as far as possible. The shower had one of those electric shower heads that heats... More

Stayed here in different rooms on 2 different visits. Each was clean and had hot water. There isn't a lot of water pressure so for the tankless heaters you might have to constantly switch between hot and cold (to get warm water) but it works.
