Lousy Room, Excellent Balcony!

by written on April 18, 2006

This photo of our room makes it look about three times as good as it did in real life, thanks to the camera flash illuminating the place instead of the single bare lightbulb! The window at the end of the bed was nailed partially open so it could not be closed, and when I tried to adjust the rusted metal venetian blind, the whole contraption fell down! Off to the left was our small room with a toilet and shower - only one fawcett handle worked in the shower but at least the water was lukewarm.

Unique Quality: That window at the head of the bed opened up onto the second floor balcony that ran across the whole front of the building. Now that was a nice place to sit, talking to the other guests and enjoying the breezes coming off the harbour. The second photo shows Sue and I sitting out there in the afternoon, along with Lauren, an Australian lass who had been at the Seaside for a couple of days. By the way, Lauren's head is next to our bedroom window with the smaller window next to it belonging to our toilet/shower. We retired to our bedroom early on Sunday night, managing to get undressed in our room as other guests sat on the balcony chatting outside our open window! Their conversation and the rattling of the blind in the wind soon saw me drifting off to sleep.

Budget Accommodations

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 18, 2006

As our shuttle van drove into the heart of Belize City, we could see a shift from the other places we had been. Most of the buildings looked very dilapidated and all of them had a fortified appearance, with locked doors at ground level and burgler bars on virtually all windows. Alighting on the sidewalk with our backpacks, we rang the buzzer and one of the Seaside staff came out to unlock the street access door.

The Guest House is more like a hostel in many respects, a two story affair with various ramshackle rooms, some of which contain multiple bunk beds and others which are more like 'normal' rooms. The downstairs kitchen has a large table where guests can have meals that are made in the same room, or they can play on the dial-up internet connection while sitting at one of the table chairs. We paid US$44 for our double room with private toilet/shower.

Directions: South side of the Swing Bridge and follow along the harbour front for about 5 blocks until reaching Prince Street.

Great accomodation in Belize City

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 18, 2003

Very simple lodgings with the basics but comfortable and very clean. There are one, two, three and four people rooms available. Owner is friendly and there is a room with books, tv, etc for the guests. Bathroom and shower available for the guests to share.
I stayed here the day I arrived to organise myself before heading out on my travels. It is in the perfect location to stay before heading away to the jungle, cayes, north or south of the country. Flights into Belize generally get into Belize City mid to late afternoon so it's wise to stay here before heading off fresh in the morning. Rooms for one person run at $20, two people at $30, three for $39 and four for $48. All prices in US Dollars. Belizian dollars and US dollars are the accepted currency here and throughout all of Belize. A taxi from Belize City airport to the guesthouse costs approx $15 per person. It is used by many people of many nationalities travelling through Belize on the way in or on the way out. All taxi drivers know it, just mention it by name.

Unique Quality: While simple in accomodation it's the location, staff friendliness that make this a gem. It's a five minute walk from the bus station if you're heading out of the city. It's also a five minute walk to the water taxi docks for catching a water taxi out to the Cayes. The building sits just off of the shoreline road which runs along the Caribbean. The view is modest and the sea can be seen. Around the corner (on the shoreline road) is a bar-restaurant that is cosy too. Everything needed is very close by.
The guesthouse itself offers breakfast for a modest price of between $1.50-$4.00. There is internet access during office hours and telephone available for incoming and outgoing calls. Staff can book and reserve for you trips to other areas of Belize, Guatamaula, etc. If you want to travel Belize on a shoestring, this is a great start.

Directions: Prince Street is very near to the water taxi docks, only a five minute walk south of the docks area.
