I stayed here for one at the end of my week long trip in Guatemala. I found out about this hotel from my Lonely Planet guidebook, I only stay in LP recommended hotels. Like the other reviews, I have nothing but amazing things to say about this small boutique style hotel. Everything was perfect. My room opened up into the...

My first visit to the Posada Belen was in 1974. Then it was Casa Sanchinelli and run by Maria Sanchinelli and her husband. The small intimate hotel was a place of refuge for the groups my company led throughout Guatemala. They offered great meals and guidance around the city and suggested new sites to see. Now, I live in Panajachel...

My sister and I spent a few days in Antigua and decided at the last minute to leave a day early and tour Guatemala City.

I traveled alone to Guatemala City and was looking online for tour companies when planning my trip. I came across Guatemalaweb.com and they were very helpful and responsive so much so that I decided to change my hotel plans and stay at Posada Belen, who they are associated with. All I can say is I am glad I did, this...

Posada Belen Museo Inn, is the best place to stay in Guatemala City if you are looking for a very clean inn with a wonderful, warm atmosphere. The inn has a lovely sitting area next to a beautiful courtyard where you are welcome to relax and read or use the Wi-Fi internet if needed. The dining area is equally welcoming...

My wife and I stayed her a couple of year ago and I meant to write. This little place is in the heart of Guatemala City and with luck you can find parking right in front. If you stay a few days they will help you get parking right in front. Anyway, it's clean, it's friendly. They provide great meals...

We stay at the Posada Belen every time we are in Guatemala City. We are experienced international travelers and expect more from a hotel than just lodging. Staying at the Posada is more like being comfortable in the home of a friend rather than staying in a big hotel in a foreign country. We have never been disappointed in the...

We just completed a ten day, nine night trip in Guatemala and stayed at the Posada Belen three of those nights. The staff is extremely attentive and the accommodations comfortable.

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
