In complete contrast to most San Cristobal hotels, Hotel Bo is a design forward boutique hotel, located a short stroll from the heart of town.
The open plan glass lobby, and contemporary décor stray from the traditional cobbled streets and colonial buildings of San Cristobal, but Mayan design motifs, and the traditional Andalucian interior courtyard ensure that Hotel Bo remains a characterful option.
There are just 22 rooms, all of which are bright and spacious, with colourful textiles, warm wood furnishings, and sheepskin rugs. All guestrooms are ensuite, with TV, iPod dock and large windows overlooking the garden. The Executive Suite also offers a small private garden, and outdoor tub, whilst the Garden Suite boasts a private garden and terrace, where breakfast can be served, and a fireplace for cooler evenings. The BO Suite, is a two level suite, which offers panoramic views of the Cerro de Huitepec from its private terrace.
Restaurant LUM is a cosy dining room, offering a menu of contemporary Mexican cuisine using the freshest, seasonal ingredients. In room dining is also available 24 hours a day - particularly appealing to suite residents, who may like to enjoy dinner in their private gardens. Butler
Although there is no Spa at Hotel Bo, the hotel can arrange for spa treatments to be enjoyed by guests in the privacy of their room or suite. A selection of books and board games are available in the library, and there is a fitness centre too. Using Hotel Bo as a base, guests can explore the cobbled streets of San Cristobal, the Mayan ruins of Palenque, coffee estates, or the beautiful waterfall of Agua Azul.
Why we love it
The spacious rooms and bright colours of Hotel Bo make a refreshing change in San Cristobal, perfect for travellers who aren't drawn to a more classic colonial style.
