The moment I stepped into the atmospheric old building, I was in love with it. My room was very basic but the price was also basic. Brightly painted and clean. Cold water showers in the old building and a fan. It was enough. The hotel has a pool and interesting restaurant. There are other restaurants within a short walk. The...

I stayed here for a week while I was awaiting the arrival of my motorcycle by ship from New Jersey USA. I could not have chosen a better location. The hotel is an oasis of tranquility surrounded by a very busy container port. The wide and airy verandas are ideal for quiely reading or just staring out at the beautifull...

We actually had a terrible experience in Puerto Barrios. It was just a stepping off point for us to get to Belize. So we thought just one night here would be ok. Just minutes after we stepped off the bus and were walking the 3 blocks to this hotel we were robbed (at noon!) Please be careful walking around this...

My girlfriend and I stayed here while backpacking and found it in a Lonely Planet guide book. It was a great with tons of character and charm. The staff was very nice and took great care if us. We stayed here for 1 night and also ate in their restaurant which was fabulous! They have internet access for free too!...

It's been there since 1896, so expect a bit of decay, but covered with enough layers of paint to distract you briefly. Guess it's an historic landmark, totally funky, but a touch of old world class in the formal feeling dining room. Nice wide slanting veranda offers a stunning view of the ocean and shipping traffic. Beautiful setting for clean...

I must admit that Puerto Barrios did not make a good first impression when I arrived by bus. And no one knew where the hotel was, in spite of it being sort of a landmark! But I found it and am glad I did. You have a choice of the atmospheric old section overlooking the sea (and about ready to...

This hotel is a treasure that's somewhat decayed. Walking on the sagging floors and stairways is like the fun house at the state fair. Our family loved it. Although we stayed in the newer wing, the mattresses were way too soft and the power kept going out, shutting off the air conditioning. The old dining room is elegant, with waiters...

Hotel Del Norte is a classic old wooden structure near the fruit company pier in Puerto Barrios. While the streets are busy with trucks moving containers to the shipyard cranes, it's peaceful and laid-back within the gated complex. There is a nice pool area surrounded by shaded cabanas and tables with food and drink service from the hotel restaurant. The...

Hotel del Norte Was the only reason why we went to Puerto Barrios which was a 100 km d tour but it was absolutely worth it! You would only go there for the building, over a 100 years old, the waiters, once discribed as that the 2 of them were there as the hotel opened in 1892, the rooms on...
