The beds were terrible. The bathroom sinks are the OLD style where the cold and hot water come out of 2 different faucets, so no such thing as warm water. The hot water was unreliable at best. On the other hand the staff was friendly and accommodating. You can easily walk to many wonderful shops and restaurants.

This Inn offered simple, no frills and comfortable lodging for our 4 night stay. Homey atmosphere, quiet street within walking distance to historic center.

Great, quiet, safe location within easy walking distance to main plaza, cathedral, market, banks, shopping, restaurants, etc. Hard to find the little doorbell to get in. It looks like a little peep hole, but it is actually the bell. My room was large and lovely, with a teeny tiny bathroom. The hotel also has a lovely garden area. Internet worked...

Francesca greeted us when we rang the doorbell, and we were welcomed in. She speaks English well and asked us if we needed supper. She prepared pork chops and veggies just for my daughter and me.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Posada Belen is located in a fine colonial style home built in 1873 converted into an intimate Museum Inn, centrally located in a quiet street of the historical center of Guatemala City about 3 miles north from the airport (10-15 Minutes), run by the same family since opened in 1972 to international tourism. Posada Belen was slowly transformed from a colonial style home into a very special inn. Highly recommended in most important travel guides and by former guests/friends, with over 300 authentic registered Mayan artifacts on display as well as unique antique handicrafts plus many primitive paintings makes Posada Belen a true Museum, but most of all we are a clean, safe, centrally located, quiet, moderately priced, with good beds, great food, friendly relaxed atmosphere, and authentic HOME to start, end or organize your journey in Guatemala. We are conveniently located to visit any of the museums in Guatemala city, walk to the relief map, national palace, central market (lowest prices in the country for handcrafts), visit the pre classic Mayan ruins and museum of Kaminal Juyu, dozens of monumental churches , We are blocks away from the bus stations to Tikal, Xela, Antigua, Coban, Chiquimula, Rio Dulce. Etc. Shuttles are also available from the inn door. Guided walking City tour is available, Guatemala city is important if you really want to understand our culture and its history. We will be happy to help you with your itinerary and up to date travel and safety information. The Posada Belen is especially safe for women traveling alone. We have a pick up service available at any hour of day or night to all persons who will like to have a friendly and safe welcome into Guatemala's airport for about the same price as a taxi (depending on the arrival time from $10 to $15), we know we are not for everybody, our clients are usually smart people with lots of travel experience, who are looking for comfortably way to enjoy true Guatemalan culture and also likes to stay in a place with character. ... more   less
