You will never know what is behind a door

The frontage of this hotel disguises how big it is. However the rooms are generous in size and have all the facilities one would want. The gardens were particularly well laid out in simple lines and the use of the water features made this a very relaxing hotel to stay in despite it being in the middle of a very busy environment.

Modern gem in San Cristóbal

This is a modern minimalist hotel in San Cristóbal, we really appreciated the neat lines of the construction, the luminous lobby with a beautiful and elegantly high wood roof. There are great spaces to read and relax outdoors and also a nice library and a family room.

Rooms are very pretty, very simple also, if you stay in the ground floor there could be some noise coming from the people walking around the hall.

The staff is outstanding, they're constantly looking for your needs, always smiling, always friendly and solving any issue.

I missed having a mini bar and some additional details in our room.

This is certainly one of a kind place in town.

Wonderful stay in a magically crafted hotel.

We stayed at hotel B’o for 4 days and loved our stay. The ik’ suite was a combination of simplicity and impeccable good taste. It had all the essentials of a high end category hotel without the tackiness. B’o couldn’t be anywhere else but in San Cristobal, as the tactful use of local materials and crafts reminded us constantly. Service was impeccable and staff was very helpful and friendly. Location was very convenient. Lum restaurant was also exceptional. We will definitely stay at B’o on our next trip to San Cristobal.

Bo alone is worth the trip to San Cristobal

Rarely does a property excel in everything like Bo. Check in was a breeze, and the friendly staff was helpful. The room was flawless, every aspect was thought of and well designed. Turn down service was tops too!

Breakfast everyday was tasty, coffee was great, and I had dinner on my last night. It was the best meal had in San Cristobal.

Upon an early departure, the valet parking had the car running and ready to be loaded with luggage before I stepped out the front door.

A great property with great staff.

What an incredible hotel in an incredible city! The staff is better than many five star hotels ive stayed and their personalized touches are above and beyond. If you visit then this is the only hotel for you and yours. I happened to mention to the general manager, Luis, that it was my husbands birthday and we came home after a day out to balloons throughout the room, cake, chocolates and a personally signed card from every staff member. Above and Beyond!
