We had a large, beautiful room with a firm queen bed, down comforter, electric blanket and electric heater if needed (they weren't), beautifully tiled bathroom, spacious shower, balcony, views of the city and the mountains and lots of light. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of fresh fruits, fresh breads, eggs, homemade granola and yoghurt, pancakes, french toast, bacon, fresh...

We usually don't seek out bed and breakfasts; we prefer our own space and have experienced b and b's where there was too much chintz and knick knacks. But Belas was perfect. Besides having a perfect, quiet location, we met the most interesting people there and had wonderful conversations in the sunny breakfast room around the table. The breakfasts are...

My husband and I stayed at Bela's for four nights in June, and couldn't have asked for more. We had the room at the top of the steps with a balcony, looking out over the town and mountains. The location was perfect - very convenient yet quiet. Bela was so kind and helpful, despite a staff-related medical emergency. All her...

What can I say. This place felt like home (plenty of interesting books in the wood cabinet but we had too much to see around). It is well maintained (be careful of the hot water - they are REALLY hot), well decorated (I wish I'd have the energy to invest this much in my apartment) and well equipped (no TV...

We loved our 4 nights with Bela, including her 4 dogs and the other fine guests she seems to attract. Bela is from the USA and carries her hippie commune roots into her B&B. The place is tasteful and charming, no incense or beads. It is only if you linger after breakfast will you learn of Bela's amazing life story....

Bela's talent is her ability to make her guests feel welcome. Guests enjoy comfortable beds, clean rooms and excellent food; Bela shares her thorough knowledge of the area. She has a great sense of humor and her eye for detail is what makes her B and B so outstanding. I enjoyed fresh flowers, a daily locally made truffle, an electric...

We were so glad to have discovered Bela's B&B on trip advisor, all the reviews do describe it perfectly. We enjoyed Bela's suggestion of an organised tour to local villages. Bela's rooms were clean and the beds were super comfortable - breakfast was fresh and delicious. Bela is a mind full of information and top tips! Perfect

Staying at Bela's, was like viisting a good friend. I came in late, it was raining,I was tired, Bela fixed me a cup of hot tea and all but tucked me into bed. I had the cottage bedroom. Looking out into the garden was a daily delight. Bela herself is warm, witty and a very comfortable woman, her staff, gentle...

Bela's B & B is a lovely bed and breakfast centrally located in the historic town of San Cristóbal de Las Casas. At Bela's you are one block from the one walking street, one-half block from the Santa Domingo Church and outdoor artisan market, three blocks from the zocalo/central square and three blocks the other direction from the town marketplace. You have four lovely bedrooms to choose from, all very cozy and homey, with wonderful service. On the courtyard garden there are two bedrooms with views of the garden, one with private bath. Up the terrace there are two bedrooms, each with private bathrooms, with views of the city. The top room has a balcony with a breath-taking view, and the lower room is a suite with a sitting area and king-size bed.
