El Rey Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I paid about $60/night, which qualifies as being overpriced. Credit cards accepted. Room was perfectly fine, clean and comfortable. Good strong A/C. Shower OK--no shortage of hot water. Located in a residential neighborhood about five minutes' walk from some markets and an incongruously good American-style delicatessen. Breakfast served for a small fee at the hotel. Drinks and snacks sold at the front desk. It's a completely decent place where you'll be safe and secure, but the Hotel Hibiscus is way more conveniently located and better value for money...

A reasonably nice hotel with good aircon and clean rooms. The laundry and rooms I felt were a bit overpriced however was the cheapest place in Belmopan! Would avoid belmopan if travelling through as there is nothing to do!

We were 3 couples traveling from Belize City down to Placencia, and wanted to spend a couple days in the Blue Hole National Park area. Belmopan was right on the way, and the El Rey Hotel was just what we wanted. It was in a local area which was nice to walk around and there were shops just a couple blocks away, as my friend forgot his flip flops! In the morning, the choice of world coffees was fun and delicious, as was breakfast. The rooms were basic, but very clean and nice, and all the hotel staff was great!

We chose this hotel so we had a launch and landing for an inland tour. Super friendly staff. Nick, the owner was great, as well as the night time desk receptionist. Both owner and front desk staff were very helpful with other areas of Belize and transportation. Clean rooms with private bathrooms were just fine! Great affordable place to stay.

Had a wonderful stay with my family. The room had its charm. It's warm and welcoming hospitality. The staff from we entered came out to assist with our bags. In my daughters words a quaint and beautiful hotel. My favorite was having the option of choosing your coffee of the day depending on what region of the world you felt that morning. For a different stay and not just a basic, same room. This is your stay. Thanks El Rey Hotel.

This place clean, convenient and the staff is friendly and helpful, however, unless you are used to dogs barking all day and night, you won't get any sleep here. We booked for 5 nights, the first night was fine, but the next 2 I could not sleep at all, the dogs barked literally for 5 minutes at a time every 5 minutes. We left and spent our next 2 nights somewhere else.

Stayed here with 3 other girls for our medical placement in the local hospital. Really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. The host was friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The nightly rate was slightly more than some other places in Belmopan if traveling on a budget but reflected the quality of the service. The food here is really great and is also very reasonably priced. Ate breakfast here every morning and some lunches/dinners. Would recommend staying here.

The El Ray is a warm and welcoming place. The rooms are all different, the beds are very comfortable, the rooms are clean and well maintained. The restaurant is small but serves really delicious local breakfast with an amazing coffee selection. The staff are incredible and Dahlias cheesecake is some of the best I have ever had.

Clean, Chilly air con, friendly staff. Best was the comfy bed, WiFi was never an issue, fast. Moderate price, but a great value. Requested early check in, the desk staff was friendly and welcoming. Quiet side street near Embassy Row, UB and capitol centre.

We stayed here for 5 nights in the last leg of our family trip to Belize. We booked this place specifically for the AC room. The room was clean and cozy. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food from the kitchen wasn't that bad either and the world coffees were a nice touch. There isn't much to do in Belmopan itself but it is a nice location for access to other areas of the country. We took a trip to the Belize zoo, a guide picked us up for a cavetubing adventure as well as a trip to the ATM cave tour (a must do!). It was a nice place and the walk over to the bus station and nearest restaurants wasn't too bad either.
