La Posada de Belssy

Reviewed August 30, 2010

Stayed for 3 nights. Small room, but comfortable with cable TV and fan. Roof terrace has hammocks, chairs and a small wading pool which we used to cool off from the heat. Friendly owners, free water is always available and one computer with Internet was complimentary as well. Ideal location, pleasant stay overall, paid around $15 per night for a private room for both of us. That seems to be about the going rate in the town and there are plenty of places to stay but we felt this was home.

This place is a great value. It's in a great location, and the owner is friendly and helpful. Also, there's hot water, television, and hammocks!

First of all the price of $27.- is overstated. It is closer to to $16.-. we paid about $ 17.- because we could not get any Lempiras after our arrival from Guatemala.. All the ATMs seemed to be out of money in the late afternoon (!).

This was the first budget hotel, we encountered since our arrival in Guatemala, where EVERYTHING was functional. the room was compact with one double bed and one single, BUT the toilet flushed, the doors all closed properly the flow-through-heated shower with fixed sliding doors (!) was always always available. No A.C., but we were here (still are at this writing) in late January and did not even need the (working) ceiling fan.

In short, the Belssey compared to most other budget hotels like a compact car in good condition to large old decrepit clonkers and was superior overall to most places, which charged more than twice the price.

The lady, Thelma, who runs the place is very helpful and accepted our Gua. Quetzales, without any problem, before we were able to get any Lempiras.

Oh yes just a comment about the here so much maligned roosters. Granted they make a lot of noise at times and never lay any eggs, but they do father the hens, which do.
You can hear them at night here too, but comparatively quiet faintly. However those noisy things that everybody complains about are not roosters, but PEACOCKS. They have a call rhythm, which is quite distinct from the rooster's crow. :)

Some friends and I travel to Copan Ruins from Antigua. we had a high recomendation about this hotel. when we get to the bus station there were a lot of kids asking you to take you to the best hotels. !!Don´t belive them!! they´re paid for the hotels´owners. Ask them to take you to the hotel u´re looking for. or even better. take a mototaxi.
I made a mistake asking some of these kids to take us to La Posada de Belssy. He told me that this hotel was expensive and very dirty. I belived him. He took us to another hotel ugly, dirty and it was 25 $ at night for a doble. We stay there just for one night and at the next morning we starded walkin the town looking for a better hotel.
we get to La Posada de Belssy and we were surprised it was the most charming hotel in the whole town. the rooms were spotless, it has a terrace with hamocs, a small pool and even a kitchen that u can use if u just aske it first.
it was just 16 $ at night for a doble. I felt like home. Telma , the owner, is the most friendly ans special woman u´ve ever meet. and an excellent chef.
she can cook for u upon request. Try it . U won´t be disappointed.
All the family runs the hotel, tehy even have a pet. Tunky. the most friendly dog, specialtty with foreings, lol.
I can highly recommend this hotel.

I am currently living in the Posada de Belssey for two weeks while I help with a summer camp for children and youth in Copan Ruinas (the public schools have their summer vacation from the middle of November to the end of January). I love it here. My room is very small (just big enough for a single bed and a shelved stand for a small TV) but I have my own bathroom with a shower. It is very clean and the bed is as comfortable as home. Delma, the owner/manager, is friendly and teaches me Spanish every morning while she cooks my breakfast (an arrangement made for me). The coffee here is amazing, as are the freshly squeezed fruit juices. The top floor of the hotel is a covered terrace with tables and two hammocks and great views. Right next door is a great coffee shop with free wifi and inexpensive food. The hotel is very centrally located and Delma speaks enough English to help you with anything you might need. If you are looking for a simple and comfortable place to sleep while you spend your day(s) outside exploring the ruins and the beautiful countryside, the Posada de Belssey is a perfect fit.

This property was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The guide we read says you can use the kitchen if you ask nicely. We used the fridge to store food without problem, just felt a little uncomfortable using the kitchen to cook in. The bedroom was cleaned and fresh towels left every day. The room cost $16 USD, definetly a good deal.
