We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Bamboo. I'll even go as far as saying that it was our favorite guest house of the 2 week trip in Mexico. The owners resemble the city of San Cristobal : friendly, relaxed, soulful. They were very knowledgeable regarding the various places to eat or visit and we found their advice always spot on.
The breakfast was delicious and healthy, the room was very bright -simply yet very nicely decorated. The location is ideal, it's only one block from the pedestrian street and yet it remains perfectly quiet, we never had any problem relaxing or sleeping.
They provided much needed help and comfort when I was feeling under the weather and I can safely say that if the end of our stay in the country turned out a success it is greatly thanks to Zophia and Steven and what emanates from their home. It was, quite frankly, an utter pleasure to spend a few days with them and their lovely dogs. We would definitely recommend staying there, may it be for a night, a week or or any length of time.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome home to the Blue Bamboo Guesthouse.In San Cristóbal there are many expensive hotels and there are many cheap hotels; we are neither of these. Our prices are on the economical end of the scale but not at the bottom; we pride ourselves on clean comfortable rooms in a relaxing setting with a delicious breakfast and good travel advice.If you want to impress business clients with ornate glass walls and designer furniture, we might not be for you. If you want to sleep as cheap as possible to save money for beer and party all night, we are definitely not for you. But if you want good rest, good food and good advise, then this little gringo-owned guesthouse just might be the perfect little place to call home, away from home. ... more less
