“Wonderful in every way!”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

I recently spent 5 nights at Bela's. I can't say enough great things about this B and B. Bela is a great hostess with incredible knowledge about San Cristobal and the surrounding area. I had a small but cosy room that stayed warm despite the cold weather. The garden is beautiful and a wonderful place to relax. The kitchen/ dining area is warm and inviting. Manuela and her daughters prepare the best breakfast. I was lucky enough to have her lunch two days and it was the best food I had in Mexico. The guests spent a long time sitting at the dining table which was an added enjoyment. Perfect location- close to everything. I can't wait to return. Thanks Bela- you have created a comfortable and welcoming spot!

Breakfast at Bela's B and B is a treat. The windows of the breakfast room look out on the beautiful garden area and it's a great way to start the day. The rooms at Bela's are lovely, and Bela is very knowledgeable about everything to do and see in Chiapas. The location is excellent, just half a block from the indigenous market and an 8 minute walk to the Zocalo. This lodging gives excellent value.

Bela's is the perfect B&B for San Cristobal. It's only a block from the main pedestrian street and from Santo Domingo. The courtyard garden is beautiful and filled with flowers. Our room was one of the upper level rooms, so we looked out at the mountains across the town. The room was large, comfortable and beautiful. Bela's has a variety of rooms, we had one of the larger rooms at the back. We could sit outside our room and listen to the music in the zocalo in the evening, but never had any problem with street noise.

Breakfasts included fresh fruit and bread, coffee or tea and juice. Eggs are also cooked to order.

Bela was as friendly and helpful as you hope a B&B owner will be. We also had great discussions with the other guests around the breakfast table in the morning and in the garden later in the day.

Bela's B&B is very comfortable, very inviting and located within easy walking distance to the historical centre. Breakfasts are brilliant. Bela is extremely helpful by recommending restaurants, activities and logistics. She also cared for us when we were under the weather. Teresa gives a great therapeutic massage that both my wife and I enjoyed. Three of us stayed in the Suite and found the lush gardens inviting. We enjoyed this B&B for 7 glorious days. This is a lovely place to stay.

Bela's deservedly is the top choice in San Cristobal. Great location to explore the city on foot, cozy rooms, gorgeous garden, delicious cooking by Manuela and Bela's wealth of knowledge about the area all contribute to make staying here a great experience. Interesting guests and friendly dogs make it ideal for solo travellers too. I hope to return!
