[ FROM THE POSADA'S GUEST BOOK ] [INTERACTIVE LOCATION MAP ]
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 only 2.5 miles from the airport (15 Minutes), run by the same family since opened in 1972 to international tourism.
Posada Belen was slowly transformed from a colonial home into a very special family inn. Highly recommended in most travel guides and by former guests/friends, 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 also a clean, safe, centrally located, quiet, moderately priced, with good beds, good food, friendly family atmosphere, and adequate start, end or organize your journey in Guatemala.
We are conveniently located to visit any of the 13 museums in Guatemala city, the relief map, national palace, central market (lowest prices in the country for handcrafts), visit the preclasic Mayan ruins and museum of Kaminal Juyu, just minutes drive , We are blocks away from the bus stations to Tikal, Xela, Antigua, Coban, Chiquimula, Rio Dulce. Etc. City tour is available and believe it or not the Easter Week processions in Guatemala city are bigger than the ones in Antigua, there is one that is big enough for 125 people at the same time and is considered the biggest in the world, Guatemala city is important if you really want to understand our culture and its history.
