First, let me comment on the bed – extremely comfortable. My husband said “the beds were like Goldilocks, just right”. The location, you can’t beat; easy walking to restaurants, shopping, churches, etc. The chocolates Bela leaves every night are amazing – totally addicting. The warm service Bela provides is outstanding. She gives you the option to have a secure driver... More

Bela's is the best. Beautiful garden to relax in, superb breakfasts, comfy rooms and close to everything you need. Bela is the perfect hostess and becomes your caring and warm friend. Enjoy!

Where to begin ? Beautiful flowered courtyard, scattered chairs to catch the sun and read in blissful quiet, huge breakfast buffets in cozy kitchen, (really good coffee) comfortable beds and room with western amenities (plus homemade chocolates appearing magically each afternoon by one's bedside) fresh flowers in the rooms, only one block from the indigenous market and beautiful church, and...

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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

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... More
