Traveled with wife and three adult kids - stayed in Meson de Maria while visiting Antigua. Arrived shortly after midnight, and were greeted by a big smile of the reception. All luggage moved upstairs - rooms were a bit hot, but got immediately a fan in the room. Rooms well decorated in traditional style. Fantastic patio's - although some North... More

I've stayed here twice and really like it there. Low key with a lot of places to hang around when you need a respite from touring the town. The people are friendly and helpful. Nice view of the volcanos and city roofs from the terrace above. Although kid friendly given the need to have your bar covered windows open to... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in April as part of an independent Guatemala tour. We travel extensively but have rarely come across a place that was so full of character and atmosphere! We had asked for a room on the top floor in the back courtyard to avoid any breakfast noise in the morning and got... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice now while I have been doing some work in and around Antigua. The hotel is very well situated near the main square of Antigua. The rooms are comfortable (if a little dark) and very clean. I think what I like most about this hotel are the common areas outside of the rooms. There are... More

The room was stuffy the first night but at breakfast we asked for a fan which was delivered immediately. This made the room perfect. Nery, our host is the most caring hotel employee I have encountered throughout the world. He remembers every detail about his guests. Upon walking into the restaurant the second morning he asked, "cafe negro y cafe... More

Great location, welcoming/helpful staff and lovely building. Yet this was one of the most uncomfortable stays of our 4 months travelling across Latin America. The rooms are just too hot and stuffy (they gave us a fan when we asked but it did not make much difference) and extremely cramped. I have no idea why there are two double beds... More

We received a very warm welcome from friendly staff. The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from the lively and attractive central square. It has a lovely colonial feel to it, with two internal courtyards to relax in, along with chairs and settees on the open landings and a lovely roof terrace with great views. The rooms were of...

I absolutely loved it here! It's just full of little corners to relax, read and take in the old world vibe of the hotel. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Roof terrace is amazing. Delicious breakfast. Staff are friendly, smiling and so helpful. So Central- just walk out the door and you are in the middle of it all.... More

This small boutique hotel located in the heart of Antigua was a perfect fit for us. Built around a central courtyard, with an incredible rooftop patio, this hotel was very quiet and intimate. Carlos and Louis at the front desk could not have been more helpful. From arranging tour guides, shuttles to the airport and suggesting places to eat, they... More

Spent 3 nights in Meson de Maria before heading off to Lake Atitlan and Chichicastenango, then back to this great hotel, and same room, for another couple of nights before our long trip home after 7 weeks away. Loved the place, had room 205/206? can't quite remember, but it was a lovely room with balcony on the second floor. The... More
