Loved this stylish little gem, which was not overpriced for the area. It has a great bar and restaurant. The sopa de tortilla is to die for! I would definitely stay there again if/when I go back. Pool is small, but great for sitting by and relaxing.

my daughter, boyfriend and I visited San Miguel yesterday and were looking for a nice drink. We were happy to get out of the heat we had margaritas and a sangria. Lovely location and nice setting . Our waiter was quite slow, Might have been in training. Would go back for sure!

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
