I stayed at El Meson for business because I had to. I have stayed there before, but this was the worst stay of them all. Calling ahead, I double checked that there would be no parties or gringo sing-a-longs lasting past midnight (previous experience). I also inquired about the state and quality of the internet connection because in other stays... More

The place is nice, gorgeous, boutique, cozy and small, one block away from the main plaza, but the best of this hotel is the food and THE BAR, attended by his owner German who is always creating the perfect cocktail for your own personal taste. Don't miss the chance to taste the spicy clamato, the chile serrano mojito and the... More

This is by far one of the best hotels that i have ever stayed at. The staff is super friendly and the grounds of the hotel truly resemble an oasis. The city of San Miguel is lovely and by staying at the El Meson it only added to the overall experience. They let me check out super late without any... More

Comfortable renewed hotel located in the main downtown zone, just blocks away from the main garden. We chose this hotel por its privacy and location, our rate included breakfast which can be delivered to your room. Rooms are not very spacious since they adapt rooms to the original architecture, but linen quality and ammenities are fine, we got a suite... More

Big, nice and comfortable rooms, the suites are awesome, very cool patio with pool, a general excellent vibe throughout the hotel, bar. Loved the breakfast too! But the best thing about this hotel is the staff, they make you feel like you´re at home, with family! We were a very large group of friends and family and we all were... More

Have not stayed at the hotel, but spent plenty of time in their beautiful bar. We've visited three times. Wide selection of spirits. Bartenders know how to mix, shake or stir a cocktail. Cocktails are more expensive, but the quality of ingredients, ambiance, and extra touches make the experience very classy and worth it. Interior is interesting, inviting, lots of... More

We just celebrated our wedding last weekend (December 7th) at a Hacienda outside San Miguel but held our Friday Welcome reception at El Meson. This hotel is beautiful with very nice modern touches. Since the wedding was going to be held at an older Spanish Hacienda, we wanted to give our guests a taste of modern San Miguel. El Meson... More

My wife and I and a few friends stopped in for an after dinner cocktail and were seated in an outdoor setting around the pool. What an absolute delight this hotel is- the drinks were superb and the service excellent. The vodka martinis were outstanding, although a little pricey but well worth the ambience and certainly worth a repeat visit,... More
