The room was very dated, very tiny for two beds and the beds very lumpy. No hot water for showering. Breakfast was soooo bad. Coffee took 45 min. The cream was sour ( solid chunks) and the coffeemate was so old/stale is was a solid lump and would not dissolve in the coffee. Over easy eggs were raw, slight whiteness of the egg white, everything came cold, toast, eggs, ham. The breakfast took 68 min to arrive. I could not eat anything, the waitress saw it untouched but did not ask any questions about why.

We apologize if this was so, we did have temp cook for staff on vacation. But it is hard to track since your name does not match any guests who stayed with us during that time. If this was indeed that person, I truly wish for your sake you had said something to front desk as there is no way this should have been. In all our 7 years our breakfasts have been the highest praise we have received. Sadly I know when people are upset, they tend to be dissatisfied with everything and everyone as well. I've seen this in every hotel I have worked. So i will hold back on my rebuttal but I absolutely must say that we have hot water in every single one of our rooms and have a very large heater that has always done the job perfectly. Perhaps you did not know how to turn it on. And again you did not say anything to front desk. They are there to help, dont be shy to ask or speak up when things go wrong at any hotel you stay at. All hoteliers really appreciate that you leave happy or say something so they can help.

It is worth about $25.00 .Don't stay there if you are American. Their employees don't like Americans. There are other places where you can be respected and feel safe. If you stay there make sure you are with someone.

It is so disappointing that an unsubstantiated review like this would be allowed even though it was reported as a threat. The guest shortly after arrival asked to make a phone call and front desk gave him the rates, he said he wanted it free and front explained that internet was free and suggested using wts/app .However, he immediately started shouting at her and threatened to give a bad review saying we do not like Americans if she did not give him the calls for free. And so said , so done. If we did not like and welcome ALL people we would not be in tourism. We enjoy what we do.

This is a great place to stay on a budget. The rooms are small but cheerful and clean. It is located in a residential neighbourhood within walking distance of restaurants and grocery stores. We had breakfast here, which was nothing special but reasonably priced. They do offer a great variety of coffees. As with many budget hotel options in Belize, earplugs are always a good idea if you don't like listening to dogs barking.

Budget rooms are too small for 2 people w luggage, upgrade one level. A bit run down and noisy. The Peruvian coffee is amazing and $6bz/cup ($3US). It's in a residential neighbourhood and their seems to be alot of dogs barking one night and not at all the second night. Staff are amazing and helpful.

The hotel was great and located in a residential sector. There was plenty of facilities walking distance (grocery store, very good restaurant, etc.). The hotel is really clean and confortable. We had air conditioning in our room and that can be quite handy when it is really hot outside! The staff is friendly and very helping! Breakfeast at the hotel was very good and the coffee choices was amazing! The owners were so helpful that I never could thank them enough for all the good advices and services they offered!

Thank you very much for your kind comments and we were really happy that you enjoyed your few days in Belmopan. It's reassuring to know that we are a great jump off place for the tours that you were able to do - ATM caves and St Hermans Cave. We truly appreciate you being our guest, thank you and we would love to see you back in Belize at some time in the future.
