“New Meaning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2006

This is an absolutely precious and quaint B&B owned and operated by Bela and her husband, Sangit. My wife and I (and 1 year old baby boy) spent 3 wonderful evenings at Bela's and when we return to SC, which we plan to soon, we will stay there again. Need I say more? OK, I will. The few rooms they have are cozy and individualized, clean and delightfully decorated. The whole experience exuded warmness and tranquility. Should you need advice on shopping, sightseeing, and dining, just ask your hostess, Bela, and she will point you in the right direction or even accompany you as you may wish. Oh yea, do yourself a favor, have the 90 minute massage from Teresa; it's worth a $100, but will only cost you $25! New meaning to the saying "Mi Casa es tu Casa." See you there!

Often when one goes traveling, they do not expect or receive all the amenities of home. Perhaps they have a comfortable bed in nice surroundings and a delicious breakfast but do they also get family warmth and a sense of belonging? These special, priceless additions are part of your stay at Bela's B&B. I have gone back to stay at Bela's a number of times, in spite of other choices in town, because I am received as a friend and am part of the inclusive family.
After a good night's sleep in a quiet, beautiful and private room, I walk out into a garden on my way to Bela's kitchen. There I get to sit in a glassed-in area overlooking the garden and eat a nourishing breakfast. Whatever needs I might have, questions concerning San Cristóbal, places to find unique items or gifts, Bela is there to help. She is truely a gracious as well as knowledgable hostess and has created an environment inviting to visitors.
I highly recommend Bela's B&B !!!

What a wonderful place to stay! This is a charming B&B with three rooms to choose from. I stayed in the one that had its own bathroom (the other two share a bath). My room was large and had windows that looked into the garden along with a bathroom which was decorated with tile from Puebla.

The location is excellent, just steps away from a crafts market place, a block and a half from the walking street and several blocks to the Zocalo. The innkeeper, Bela, is extremely helpful and very friendly. She knows everything about San Cristobal and will make recommendations for the area should you wish.

Also, don't miss the excellent Comida. Every day there is a home cooked meal provided by the Bela's assistant Manuela, an indigenous woman from one of the nearby communities. The regional food is delicious and made from local ingredients.
All of this for such a good price - I think it's the best deal in San Cristobal!
