By lacking amenities I mean a substandard bathroom. The bathroom shower was made with 2 garden hoses and was tiny! Room was spacious. Hotel had rustic charm. Excellent and very friendly service. Good breakfast included. Perhaps not the safest location. If you're staying in Zone 1, it's an ok option. If you want privacy, this isn't the place. .........................

This hotel is really neat and in a great location, but the highlight for me was the staff. They are so sweet and made me feel like I had known them for years. The hotel is an older (albeit gorgeous) structure and as a result, the sound proofing is low. Bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.

We had a stop-over and our teenage just stayed at the hotel, while we had a walk in the centre. So everybody happy. Interesting place. Can hang our and play card in dining room if... More

"I love this hotel -- instant friendships with the staff -- so safe we don't lock our doors -- perfect for us in every way. I'm in fancy 4-5 star hotels all over the world 300 days / year for 30 years and Posada Belen is my favorite -- absolutely. Every years for the past 7 years I bring 20... More

This has been a very pleasant place to stay in a tranquil beautiful house in the historical center of the city. The staff is super kind, the place is ultra clean, located in a very convenient part of the city. I'd recommend this place to anyone coming to this beautiful country at a very convenient price.

It's quite amazing to find a good, not high siezed hotel. Quiet, in a good location in Guatemala City. Bayond what is the average experience, in this place you can find a museum. The hotel itself it's a museum!

Excellent service and hospitality. They do everything they can to make your stay comfortable, welcoming you, potable water in the room, delicious food, and super pleasant environment with nice courtyard area with plants open to outside. Locals who visited us said it was like a little piece of Antigua....however: the water is not always hot, the shower doesn't drain well,... More

Stayed here in room #8 with my wife on the night of February 28th, 2015. Payed $65 with all taxes included but no breakfast. Hotel is on a small street just off of the historic district. This is not an area that you will want to walk around alone in at night unless you're into that sort of thing. I... More

It's like a bed and breakfast. Comfortable and cozy. Our breakfast was served in the dining room, the black beans and tortillas were exceptional. For me the most exciting thing about Posada Belen was the collection of Mayan and Olmec artifacts dating back thousands of years. It is a museum in hiding!! Friendly staff and a cozy room.

If you are looking for a small, friendly, quaint hotel with friendly service, the Posada Belen is for you. It is chuck filled with antiques which was a highlight for us. The rooms are clean and adequate. We had two wonderful breakfasts and one dinner which was prepared with care. If you are looking for big hotel ambiance, this is... More
